I’ve done colonics since college and really got into them again in my 30’s, after being diagnosed with yeast overgrowth when a friend lent me The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.). This book had a chapter on colon cleansing to balance the body of excess pathogenic yeast, bacteria, and viruses …. all right up my alley!
The mom in this photo tested positive with group B strep* infection (GBS+) in her final trimester and received I.V. antibiotics during labor. Group b strep are a pathogenic bacterium that sporadically live in the rectum, intestines, urinary tract, and genital area of all pregnant and non-pregnant healthy people.
These bacteria don’t typically cause problems when kept in check by good flora (a.k.a. probiotics) that naturally live in your body, but when allowed to overpopulate they can cause a mild to serious infection. Especially during pregnancy when more than 25% of women are diagnosed with this infection. This is a concern as a GBS infection can be harmful to both mom and her baby.
Kefir means ‘feel good’ which is how most people feel after drinking young coconut kefir (yck). This probiotic-rich food contains raw Thai young green coconuts and high-quality kefir starter*. All you have to do is mix together, culture in a warm spot, and sit back to enjoy a delicious drink
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.
I learned of ASEA while encapsulating for a mom whose placenta was so vital that I inquired if she had done anything differently during her pregnancy. The one unique thing this mom had done on a regular basis was supplement with ASEA; a bio-active solution containing Redox Signaling molecules that are safe and support the immune system. This natural supplement can be helpful for women in the childbearing years when the body is in a constant state of building itself.
Just like earth, the human body has an inner ecosystem that is located inside of the digestive tract. This living world teems with a variety of micro-flora that work day and night to keep the body healthy and in homeostasis.
The inner ecosystem stretches from mouth to rectum and is approximately 30 feet long. Neatly packed in there are millions of micro-flora organisms, both good (probiotics) and bad (pathogens) that intermingle; living in a delicate balance of harmony with one another.
