Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
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, 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.
