Dear Kristina,

I have been taking enemas for about 3 years on a daily basis; they have brought me great relief. I was very sick with horrible headaches and upset stomach and gas and someone told me to do an enema. I have since visited colon hydrotherapists and had colon irrigation done, as well as the enemas at home. I would be very sick right now, and have had many surgeries, if I had not discovered the enema. And, even though one nurse told me there was no harm, I read the warnings from doctors and of course they try to scare you. Now I am starting to have normal bowel movements on some days and continue the enemas on other days.

Hi Kristina,

A quick note of appreciation for your very wise and genuine back-to-nature advice. I was on the live chat last night and there is so much to learn about keeping our systems in healthy working order. I am implementing all your suggestions and they are falling into place and working very well. I do imagine the day that I can hopefully have my ileostomy reversed and my colon will be in top notch shape, thanks to your wisdom.

Thank you and warm regards,

Test Your Vitamin D Levels


I love being in the sunshine. I lie on the beach as often as I can make time for it. I go outside most days, midday, for at least an hour during the summer. When I am talking to a friend on the street, I always make sure we are standing in the sunshine. I avoid sunscreen. (I work hard to never sunburn.) I go to warm, sunny places often and I have always had a voracious appetite for dairy products, including grass-fed, raw milk. I have also intermittently taken 4,000 - 5,000 IU of Vitamin D, or cholecalciferol.

I have studied the importance of Vitamin D. I tell my clients to have their Vitamin D levels tested. When these levels are low, we add supplemental Vitamin D and retest until the levels are appropriate. However, until recently, I had never had my own Vitamin D level tested. I thought that it just wouldn't be possible for me to have low levels of Vitamin D.

A month ago, I had my Vitamin D levels checked. I was shocked. My Vitamin D 25-OH or 25-hydroxyvitamin D level was a whopping 31. The doc told me this was just fine. The range they consider to be normal is between 20-100 ng/mL. Quite a range, wouldn't you say? However, I knew differently. The minimum healthy Vitamin D level is 50 ng/mL (see chart) and 50 is too low if you are fighting a disease like cancer or a chronic illness like fibromyalgia or Irritable Bowel Syndrome or if you simply want to reduce your risks of these health troubles.

Did you know that cancer is now the number one killer in the United States? It is estimated that over half a million people in the United States alone will die of cancer this year. Yes, a healthy diet is a cornerstone of prevention. Yes, coffee enemas are an excellent preventative measure. Yes, optimizing your adrenal health is key. And the science is now clear that keeping your Vitamin D levels optimized is also a must to avoid cancer. Please, you, get your Vitamin D levels tested, and if they are low, take the appropriate supplements.

Silicone Enema Bag
Deeply Discounted

Silicone, a largely inert combination of man-made compounds which includes silicon, carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen, makes for an excellent enema bag. The enema bag is translucent so you can see the flow of your enema solution; it is easy to clean; it doesn't contain the phthalates (known endocrine disrupters and suspects in breast and prostate cancer) that are in plastic; and silicone does not appear to cause allergic reactions as the proteins in latex have shown to cause. Finally, silicone enema bags do not contain nickel that is found in stainless steel.

For these reasons, our 4 quart silicone bag is a very popular choice for taking regular enemas. However, our silicone bag and our Silicone Flowmaster Complete Colon Cleansing Enema Kits are our most expensive products because of the cost to manufacture the silicone enema bag.

The Optimal Health Network has worked out a temporary reduction of the cost to us from our vendor for the June newsletter sale. During the 5 days only of our June newsletter sale, we are offering our Silicone Enema Bag and our Silicone Flowmaster Complete Colon Cleansing Enema Kit at a deep discount. If you are in need of a silicone enema bag, do not miss this opportunity to buy one of these excellent bags or systems at these low prices.

As highlighted in my book, Ten Days to Optimal Health, cleansing is best when used regularly throughout the year. As the summer heats up, your body is naturally releasing more toxins and can benefit from some deep cleansing support. To assist you on your colon cleanse path, I have chosen to share an e-mail from a client:

Hi Kristina,

I have your book. I was so thrilled to find a book with instructions for a cleanse "Weston Price style." Thanks!! Your health story is very inspiring -- I hope to have a similar story one day.

I just completed the whole 35-day plan you lay out in your book. During the 5 day cleanse I followed the instructions as closely as I could. I used a colon board for my colon cleansing on days 2, 3, and 5. I felt great on the 30-day diet with plenty of energy and felt really well after I did my first colon cleanse on day 2 of the fast. On the third day of the fast, I took in A LOT of water and I released at least 10 feet of mucoid plaque. I couldn't believe it. Taking the enema series worked so well with the peppermint essential oil and the Celtic sea salt. It was weird; I felt exhausted and wiped out on the 4th day of the fast. I sort of felt like I was starting to get a cold. The next day of the 5-day fast, I felt better than I can remember feeling in a very long time. Today is my 2nd day off of the cleanse. I have re-introduced healthy foods very gradually and am still drinking lots of healthy liquids (raw milk, soup broth, etc.). Do you have any suggestions as to what could have caused me to feel so bad on day four?

Thank you so much for your thoughts!!
Terri M.

Dear Terri,

Thanks for contacting me. First of all, do know that you can always call us to guide you through your fasting process. Also, we have the bi-monthly live chat that you can join in order to get assistance.

The symptoms you describe are very common to a "cleansing reaction" in response to the 5-day colon cleanse and nutritious liquids fast that you followed. Detoxifying can make one feel sick for awhile. Daily living, without adequate nutrients, drives toxins and diseases deep into the body, while cleansing encourages and permits these wastes and diseases to surface and leave the body via the skin, lymphatic system, lungs, colon, and urinary tract.

When people quit smoking, for example, they are very often surprised at the number of colds they get during the months after they have stopped smoking. They thought they were improving their health; and suddenly they find themselves in the midst of a fiery "healing crisis." A similar situation can occur with a program such as this one.

With all that said, might you consider a hair tissue mineral analysis so that we can track your progress? The HTMA shows us what toxins -- nickel, aluminum, lead, cadmium, and mercury -- you are releasing, as well as your available energy, your adrenal and thyroid health, and your optimum carbohydrate and protein intake.

I look forward to more contact soon.
