Want a single herbal tonic to boost your circulatory, immune, hormonal, adrenal, respiratory, and digestive systems? The Optimal Health Center may have just what you are looking for!
||Try this herbal formula.
||After 30 collective years of studying how to optimize health and working with over 5000 clients at the Optimal Health Center, Kristina Amelong and DeeDee Delkamp would like to announce our signature health product, REAL Tonic for Health, which is now available through the Optimal Health Center.
||I have diverticuli, but not that bad. Do I need to check with my MD before getting colon cleanse done?
||Hi Randy! Here are the contraindications for colon hydrotherapy: You shouldn't have colonics if you have uncontrolled hypertension or congestive heart failure, an aneurysm, severe anemia, GI hemorrhage/perforation, severe hemorrhoids, renal insufficiency, cirrhosis, carcinoma of the colon, fistulas, abdominal hernia, recent colon surgery (less than three months prior), or are in the first or third trimester of pregnancy.
||So I am good to go then on the cleanse?
||Yes, but let's go into a bit more detail on the diverticuli. How do you know that you have it? And, how do you know how severe they are?
||Had a colonostomy in September 2009 at hospital; doctor confirmed it with that and the pics they took. Not that bad, but I have IBS.
||I took that info from the follow-up report of the test and the pics.
|20:03:38|| kristina ||Do you have pain in your colon?|
||And what are your colon cleansing plans?
||No pain; just certain foods trigger symptoms. Get cramps sometimes.
||Have a cleanse done by a local certified person.
|20:06:45|| kristina ||Sounds like a great idea.|
||Good evening, Kristina.
||I think having it done is much better than trying to cleanse at home myself, at least in the beginning.
|20:08:13|| kristina ||Do you feel tired all the time? Do you have more to get done than a 24-hour day allows? Are you often sick, or do you just feel run down and stressed? If so, REAL Tonic for Health is a natural therapy for many of these situations. REAL Tonic for Health is thoughtfully designed to be a nourishing tonic for all bodily systems — circulatory, immune, hormonal, adrenal, respiratory, and digestive.|
||What is the tonic and how do you take it?
||Yes, I have those symptoms sometimes.
|20:09:09|| kristina ||Either way would work well, Randy. If you need assistance clearing out your colon, with the same therapeutic effect as a professional colon cleanse, we can guide you through a phone consult or video chat.|
||The REAL Tonic for Health formula takes its name from the 4 distinct herbs that are contained in its formula:

|20:11:09|| randyu ||You can guide me through a home cleanse by phone consult?|
|20:11:10|| kristina ||Video on our REAL Tonic for Health
|20:11:16|| kristina ||Yes, we can.|
||Sounds good to me!
||I've studied all of Dr. Walker's books, I drink the juice of 3 lbs. of carrots, one beet, one apple, and 3 big handfuls of spinach every day. Been doing it for 15 years and not been sick ever since.
||Kristina, will the cleansing help control the IBS symptoms by itself?
|20:15:41|| kristina ||That is quite a story, Rick. Every day, without fail, you drink that much juice and haven't been sick once? What else do you eat?|
|20:16:37|| LiveFree ||I am online but have never been in a chat room before. Do I just ask questions or respond to the other comments?|
|20:16:49|| kristina ||You can do both or either.|
|20:16:54|| kristina ||Thanks for joining us.|
||Thank you. I am impressed that Rick drinks all of that juice every day! I tried that for a long time but found green smoothies to be better for me. The only dilemma I have with Dr. Walker's books (they're GREAT!) is that he recommends drinking distilled water.

|20:21:09|| kristina ||Kristina Amelong of the Optimal Health Network and Vanessa Teff of Standard Process discuss why many people face chronic fatigue and how to nourish the adrenal glands to recover from adrenal exhaustion.|
|20:21:44|| kristina ||I agree that distilled water is not likely the best water for excellent health.|
||I do enemas too. Every two weeks. 59, going on 40.
|20:22:32|| kristina ||Rick, what is your enema regime? Do you use implants or coffee?|
||Only every 2 weeks, Rick? How many, one?
|20:23:05|| kristina ||DeeDee Delkamp goes into detail about the Core Restore Program offered at the Optimal Health Network. It is a 7-day cleanse that she recommends as a great first step towards optimal health.|
||Walker did not think distilled water was good. He said to get your live water from juicing.
||Right now I do an enema every 2 or 3 days to move along. I also did a 6-week juice fast and daily colonics and it really helped! But the cost was ##&&&!!!
|20:23:58|| kristina || Kristina Amelong of the Optimal Health Network and Vanessa Teff of Standard Process discuss men's health and the two supplements men can take to prevent prostate difficulties, diabetes, thyroid problems, and other common health issues, all while growing old healthfully and gracefully.|
|20:24:57|| kristina ||LiveFree, do you know that you can clear out the entire colon using just enemas, just like colonics do?
|20:25:20|| kristina ||Constipation Cures
|20:25:28|| kristina ||DeeDee Delkamp of the Optimal Health Center talks about the many cures she recommends to clients suffering from constipation. She covers a wide variety of natural remedies including dietary solutions, colon cleanse, probiotics, enzymes, and herbs.
|20:25:36|| LiveFree ||You stated that in your CD set but am not sure it's getting to the cecum...|
|20:25:40|| kristina ||Hi Clint.
|20:25:45|| Clint S
||How often do you recommend doing a complete colon flush?
|20:26:16|| kristina ||How often one needs to cleanse the colon depends on the individual.|
|20:26:33|| Clint S
||Hi. What is the usual rule of thumb for that?
|20:26:45|| randyu ||Kristina, you said with flu season coming up, enemas are a good prevention and treatment for the winter viruses?|
|20:27:10|| LiveFree ||If I do an enema with coffee every 2 or 3 days, is that addictive?|
|20:27:27|| kristina ||A hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA) gives you a picture of what toxins are stored in your body and what your optimal colon cleanse schedule might be. Using the hair analysis on a seasonal basis will guide you to the colon cleansing program that will most suit your needs.|
|20:27:29|| randyu ||Are these just low volume water enemas during flu season?|
|20:28:28|| kristina ||Testing - Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) Price: $65.00 which includes a consultation|
||The Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) is an invaluable screening tool which allows a correct program of diet and supplementation to be designed for each individual's specific needs.
|20:28:54|| kristina ||The three areas of analysis are: 1) Nutrient mineral/electrolyte levels in the body's tissues are measured including Calcium; Chromium; Magnesium; Selenium; Sodium; Phosphorus; Potassium; Nickel; Iron; Cobalt; Copper; Molybdenum; Manganese; Lithium; Zinc; Boron; 2) Toxic metal levels to determine the heavy metal load in the body including Lead; Mercury; Cadmium; Arsenic; Aluminum; 3) Significant mineral ratios that help determine carbohydrate metabolism, thyroid function, level of inflammation, adrenal reserves, copper toxicity, tissue breakdown, and calcium shell.|
||I start with a 2-liter, then raise it by 3/4 liter each time, do it 4 times to 4-1/4 liters. Use a tea mix, haven't used coffee yet, been doing this 15 years too.
||Taking a coffee enema every 2-3 days is not necessarily addictive.
||Can you do a hair mineral analysis through the mail? The clinic near here charges unbelievably much more than you do...
||Can you do hair tissue test for me by mail? That is a good price!
||The local prices are much higher...
||Unless you are under time constraints, I always recommend taking a full enema series to clear out the entire colon.
|20:30:49|| kristina ||Yes, we can do the HTMA by mail and over the phone.|
|20:31:00|| Clint S
||What do you mean by an enema series?
|20:31:24|| LiveFree ||Rick, what kind of tea mix do you use? Kristina, how can I do the HTMA by mail - go online on your website?|
|20:31:30|| kristina ||A good enema program occurs when you are able to infuse enough filtered water into your colon to stimulate peristalsis throughout the entire colon, thus cleansing the entire colon -- not just the rectal or sigmoid areas. Once enough water is in the colon, you then expel it, along with the resulting waste, into the toilet. You then repeat the process one or two more times.|
|20:31:38|| kristina ||This is called an enema series.|
|20:32:05|| LiveFree ||Do you have to do it upside down to get it down to the cecum?|
||By upside down I mean with my head down and my you-know-what up.
|20:33:12|| kristina ||No, you do not need to be upside down to get the water to the cecum. You want to take in as much as one gallon of water during one of the enemas in a series and you want to take three in a row and you want to use an essential oil in the second enema.|
||I have your 2-CD set so I'll have to study it again. My concern is putting so much water into my colon, even for an extended period of time.
||I use Flor-Essence tea and Peppermint.
|20:34:34|| kristina ||Essential oils will help to stimulate peristalsis so that the entire colon empties during the enema series.|
||Colon cleanse and essential oils
|20:35:08|| kristina ||You put a lot more water into the colon when you have a colonic.|
||Rick, thank you.
||Yes, you do but it comes right out.
||I still think having someone do the cleanse for you is better.
||I agree, Randy, but it's pretty expensive over time.
|20:36:40|| randyu ||How is the colonic different for the enema? You don't need to hold the water in and it comes right out?|
||The enema water comes right out when you sit on the toilet. Assisting the water to easily leave the colon is another function of the essential oil. Also, use a high quality sea salt, like Celtic sea salt.
|20:37:25|| kristina ||Basically, and you are with a therapist. |
|20:38:47|| LiveFree ||Is that all covered in your CD set? I find colonics easier because I don't have to keep getting up. I do hold the water in during a colonic but am concerned putting too much in during an enema that doesn't come out as fast. Does that make sense?|
||Do any insurance cover colonics with a doctor script?
||How to take an enema
||Kristina, this may sound weird, but what do you think about squatting after the enema? Is that better for you?
||And, yes, the two DVDs, All About Enemas and Cleansing, Coffee Enemas and Colon Tubes, detail how to take therapeutic enemas that have the same colon cleansing value as colon hydrotherapy.
|20:42:14|| kristina ||LiveFree, not weird at all.|
||Another great book out there is The China Study.
||I bought a platform board to help with that procedure but it's so awkward I have a hard time using it, plus it makes me laugh while I'm up on it!
||Yes, squatting can be very useful after an enema, which is why we offer and sell a lot of Welles Steps, or squatting stools.
||It is funny, isn't it?
||I am not aware of any insurance that covers a doctor's script for colonics. Let me know if you know differently.
||Yes, it's a real scream! I don't tell many people about it! It's not something I'd advertise on YouTube, like a recipe!
||And, another great book out there is called Ten Days to Optimal Health!
|20:45:26|| kristina ||This book is a step-by-step guide to nutritional therapy and colon cleansing. It includes important self-help strategies for people who want to take responsibility for their own health and well-being. It is an excellent program for people who need to be gluten-free.|
||The program that I designed includes the nutritional research work of Dr. Weston A. Price, who studied the diets of fourteen traditional societies during the 1930s and 1940s. His goal was to understand what makes human beings healthy and what allows them to have perfect teeth. The food Kristina recommends to readers are the traditional foods that gave health to the populations that Price researched. And, the diet is gluten-free!
|20:45:50|| LiveFree ||I bought that book but disagree with eating dairy and meat at all. I know you think it's the best approach but for me with my colon I have to be raw!|
|20:46:42|| kristina ||What happens when you eat raw dairy and the rarest meat possible? It is true that everyone is different and one diet doesn't work for everyone.|
|20:46:55|| kristina ||What raw foods do you eat?|
||I love Weston Price information, but am finding out at my age that I have to do what feels right. I do eat an egg yolk raw every other day.
||That will be my next book. I've been wanting to get it. Kristina, what is a true max volume for a series of enemas?
||Do you mean in quarts per enema or in number of enemas?
||Green smoothies according to the Raw Family's recipes (and others) plus seed milks, nut milks, raw seeds (soaked first), a little Celtic sea salt, dulse, stuff like that. I'm feeling so much BETTER!
||You make the milks yourself or do you
|20:49:35|| kristina ||buy them at the store?|
||Quarts or liters per enema, not per number.
|20:49:55|| kristina ||I do not recommend more than 4 quarts of water.|
||Yes, I soak first then add water and blend. Love that stuff! But I really do miss my pizza! (but know it's not WORTH IT anymore!)
||The green smoothies are making a huge difference in my energy level.
||That seems to be where it just naturally stops, between 4 and 5 quarts with me.
||OK, thanks all for the info, good night... Good health to all...
|20:52:05|| randyu ||:) |
||This is my first chat room experience! This is really weird! Almost as weird as squatting! (Not quite!) Thanks all for everything, too. It's been very interesting! Got to do homework...
|20:52:55|| kristina ||Thank you very much for joining us, LiveFree. Please stay in touch.|
||Good night all...
|20:53:07|| kristina ||Good work on taking care of yourself, too!|
|20:53:16|| LiveFree ||I will, thanks! |
||Good night, Randy.
||Next live chat with DeeDee Delkamp, October 26th at 12 noon. Please join us then.
|20:56:44|| Clint S
||Kristina, can you recommend practitioners of colon services in the Washington DC area?
|20:58:33|| kristina ||Unfortunately, Clint, I know of none but I do recommend the website, www.i-act.org as a source for certified colon therapists.|
|20:58:55|| Clint S
||OK, thanks... Good night.
||Thank you, Kristina.
