  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome and the Colon Cleanse


    Recently I received the following email:
    I am a newcomer to colon therapy. I believe my experience is similar to many who come seeking relief from a variety of symptoms, including fatigue, joint and muscle pain, bloating, headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, PMS; the list goes on and on. After six weeks of periodic colon therapy and following the dietary and lifestyle guidelines in Kristina’s book, Kristina Amelong’s Ten Days to Optimal Health, I am symptom-free. My energy level has returned to what it was in my early 20s (I am 37), and best of all, I took no drugs to achieve these results. -Sarah

    The above testimonial highlights this month's focus on colon cleansing and its healing role in Irritable Bowel Syndrome or IBS.

    I would like to share a part of my own story:

    I worked with a naturopathic doctor who had me taking 20-30 different supplements daily and following a strict diet of organic vegetable juice, minimal grains, no meat and vegetable fat. I was also told to do daily colonics, regular fasting and liver cleanses. While on this program, I had my mercury fillings out. This program left me sick in bed for six weeks and with chronic intestinal pain for over five years. I left the guidance of that naturopathic doctor to work with a registered nurse turned health consultant. She again had me taking lots of supplements and following a strict eating program. Even though I diligently followed her guidance, my Irritable Bowel Syndrome caused me tremendous pain every single day. After two years of working with her, to attain a partial recovery, she discovered that she had cancer and died three weeks later.

    These tragic experiences have led me on a path that forced me to continue to learn, to continue to figure out how to think for myself about the various healing modalities, and to heal deeply.

    I am proud that I didn't give up and that I held onto my belief in the healing power of my own body . I have found that the proper nutrition for my individual body, along with well- placed colon cleansing, have allowed my body to heal from not only IBS, which has included chronic constipation as well as bouts of bloody diarrhea, but also chemical sensitivities, chronic yeast infections, intense bouts of nausea and mood imbalances. Throughout this entire process, I have believed that my body could heal without using suppressive drugs that cause other problems. You, too, can heal fully from Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

    Buying At-Home Enema Equipment

    I would like to pass along to you information about enema system product features for colon cleansing. The following guide offers a description of features that will help you make a decision about what type of enema equipment to buy.

    Price: Price is an important consideration if you’re on a tight budget. The enema kits that I sell online range from $8.50 to $225 The difference in price reflects features such as bag material, bag capacity, choices in clamps, nozzles, hose length, ease of cleaning and durability.

    Testimonial - Irritable Bowel Syndrome Relief with a Colon Cleanse

    This month's testimonial from C.L. is about how colon cleansing can be a key component in healing from Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

    FAQ About Colon Cleansing

    This month's Frequently Asked Question pertains to colon cleansing.


    I have my own colon cleanse equipment and use it regularly (and love it). However, sometimes when I attempt an enema the water has a very hard time going in and then will not come out. Then it takes several hours for it all to drain. This is very frustrating. Do you have any ideas why this happens?

    Optimal Health Center adds Kelly King Licensed Massage Therapist to our growing staff!

    Hi, My name is Kelly King. I am a state and nationally licensed massage therapist. I am very excited to have this wonderful opportunity to work with Optimal Health Center.

    After graduating high school, I realized I really wanted to be a Massage Therapist. I am so glad I made this decision. I have found it so rewarding to be able to treat people with their aches and pains of daily life. It is wonderful to see a client finally relax and let go after a hard day. The best part is I am invited to take part in people’s own personal treatment plan, and little by little the changes begin.

    I have almost 3 years massage therapy experience now. I perform Swedish massage, Deep Tissue massage, Shiatsu, Pregnancy massage, Hot Stone massage and my personal favorite, Trigger Point Therapy massage.

    I believe massage therapy is most beneficial and successful when utilized in a wellness center atmosphere. The reason for this is because the whole body can be treated-physically, emotionally, and spiritually. This is the path to total body health.

    In closing, I hope I have inspired you to try a massage at least once in your life time. I can promise you won’t regret it. I hope I get the chance to meet you. Together, we will work on a plan that meets your needs.

    Starting next month look for more of my articles on Health and Massage Therapy.

    To contact me call the Optimal Health Center @ (608)242-0200 or click on OH Center Services then Massage Therapy, for service descriptions and prices.

    Take care & god bless,

    Kelly King L.M.T.
