How I Do Colonics In My Bathroom

20160116_225616I’ve been doing colonics since college and really got into them when I was in my 30’s, shortly after being diagnosed with yeast overgrowth. A friend lent a book called Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) that had a chapter on colon cleansing as part of a protocol to balance the body of excess yeast, bacteria, and viruses …. right up my alley!

Apple Cider Kefir: A Probiotic Recipe

This kefir is made from apple cider and starter; a sour ‘n fizzy concoction with a champagne-like taste …. pure effervescence rich in diverse, potent probiotic strains; basically a bunch of friendly flora that act as digestive aids to keep the gut in good shape. More benefits.

Looking for an easy, affordable way to get your probiotic dose? This might be for you. Especially if you have an issue with your gut (i.e. bloating, constipation) or yeast/bacterial overgrowth (i.e. Candida, GBS+). 

No matter what you have going on, a glass of juice kefir is a way to kick start a day and keep the internal bugs in balance.

Parsley Power: Green Vegetable Smoothie 💚

I love watching a person when I tell them what I put in my smoothies. This is good stuff! Had I not tried it, I’d have stuck my nose up at the idea of adding parsley, lettuce, or zucchini for that matter. I’m telling you the blend works and tastes good too. 

Parsley is an herb rich in vitamin A, vitamin K, folate, beta-carotene, calcium, iron, antioxidants, and essential oil. Health benefits include inhibiting cancer, detoxifying, anti-inflammatory, immune booster, building bone, and removing gallstones (contains oxalic acid/kidney cleanser). Traditionally, parsley has been used to remedy anemia, bad breath, and menstrual pain.

Bolus Recipe for Vaginal Yeast Infections

IMG_5081

Boluses (a.k.a. ovules, vaginal suppositories) are anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and provide relief from vaginal yeast infections. These tube-like shapes are solid at room temperature but melt once inserted to release the oils and herbs inside which will absorb into the vaginal tissue.

How I Do Castor Packs

Castor oil is both gentle and potent and has the ability to absorb into your skin and various other organs to relieve pain, increase circulation, decrease inflammation, and bring healing to specific parts of the body. One easy way to get all these benefits is with a ‘castor pack’.

My first time doing a pack was after my youngest was born in 2007. I did one every day that first week home from the hospital to get my uterus back in shape. Heavenly! Year later, I used it again for chronic bloating and constipation I was having from yeast overgrowth. A saving grace providing tremendous relief (my castor pack + B.E.D., digestive enzymes, minerals, boluses, and unsalted probiotic food got my health back on track). ❤️ read more
