When the colon is clean and normal we are well and happy but let it stagnate and it will spread the poisons of decay, fermentation, and putrefaction into the blood, poisoning the brain, nervous system, organs, and glands.
The colon is a sewage system but by neglect and abuse, it becomes a cesspool. That’s when we become mentally depressed and irritable; poisoned in the lungs so that the breath is foul; poisoned in the digestive organs so that we are distressed and bloated. You will see it: the face is puffy and the skin looks unhealthy.
In short, every organ of the body is overloaded and we age prematurely, look and feel old, the joints are stiff and painful, the eyes (‘the windows of the soul’) look dull and stressed, and the sluggish brain overtakes us. The pleasure of living is gone.
Detoxification, which I prefer to call cleansing, is “amazing” and “controversial”—those are the two words often associated with it. It is both.
It is amazing to all who see its wonders but do not yet perceive its secrets. It is controversial because of its struggle for acceptance by contemporary medicine as a valid health improvement and maintenance method. Interestingly, the methods I use are originally designed and used by doctors. Based on Dr. Bernard Jensen’s simple, safe, and effective method, as well as Dr. John R. Christopher’s approach, and Prof. Arnold Ehret’s principles of mucusless diet and rational fasting, I design the program for you.
Together, we will re-open your body’s elimination system and rejuvenate the entire organism, including the mind. We will build healthy habits—for a lifetime of wellness. The results are dramatic, but the process isn’t traumatic.
The Bottom Line
Overcoming chronic dis-ease requires the right living, good food, and an elimination and detoxification program.
In almost all cases, we can start with the detoxification (the cleanse). I like my clients, new and old, to be familiar with the elimination diet, detoxification, reversal process, and healing crisis and to have a clear understanding of those. Once you’ve felt the benefit of the cleanse, it is easier for you to establish new, healthy habits.
I will design an elimination diet and a cleanse program. Including protocols based on Dr. Bernard Jensen’s methods, you can do the cleanse at home with my advice and help.
Analysis and Interpretation of the Iris
Iridology is the art and science of analyzing the color and structure of the iris of the eye to gain valuable health information. Working together with my colleague in the US, I can provide you with the reading and assessment. Find out:
- The current condition: where exactly your body is inflamed or suffers from suppression, sometimes even without you begin aware of it. The most common current conditions identified by “reading the eye” are bowel-kidney-brain-glandular (dis)functions, circulation, stress. Also, importantly, mineral deficiencies, immune function, and waste accumulation
- Your body’s inherent weaknesses and strengths
- Learn specifics of how YOU can integrate nutrition, and what kind of nutrition, in order to build and maintain health
I decided to go for detox as I was feeling very heavy, tired and slow like having the constant lack of energy and losing control over my body.
Detox was an amazing experience, as difficult it is, as fruitful are the results. I could train my strong will for good reason.
It not only removed wastes from my body, but also from my mind. Allowed me to get to know myself and understand my needs much more than ever.
Detox also opened my eyes to the nutrition subject. I realized my bad habits in my way of eating. We tend to forget that we eat to leave and not leave to eat. That the meal is a very important moment which we should focus on and not eat in a rush and hurry. Also not to snack during the day too much.
Detox: it’s a whole complicated process, but very interesting and full of good experiences, which I will use to make my better way of living. Now I wake up full of energy, feeling light and easy, what to wish more, may it last forever.Ewelina
Instead of being a fountain of wholesome life—the source of purest blood and health—my bowel has become the secret underground chamber, the breeding place of all suffering, and the father of all misery.~ Prof. Arnold Ehret
Gently Clean the Colon
By doing easy, gentle, non-invasive enemas, we rid your colon of accumulated mucus, junk, and waste. You will find the process to be free from pain, non-invasive, perhaps even meditative. As we are removing obstructions and the toxicity accumulated around them, you will feel an immediate relief which goes beyond words. Our enemas are a wonderful treatment. You’ll see!
Cleanse and Rebuild Tissues
It’s time to use small vegetable salads and some steamed vegetables. As you’re supporting your body with the necessary resources, you’re asking it to reactivate its natural instinct for renewal. Please think for a moment how important this idea is.
We’ll get you assimilating all minerals, vitamins A, B complex, C, D, E, and K. We’ll get plenty of amino acids, chlorophyll (when you hear chlorophyll, think blood building and reduced inflammation). All most wonderful things to drink—easy to digest, absorb, and assimilate.
I’m guessing that your blood pressure (B.P.) has been all over the place lately? That’s due to the scarcity of absorbable calcium and magnesium, too much cooked and processed foods, and maybe some drinking or smoking have been involved? Long story short, as soon as we will have been working for a while on cleansing the systems of your body, a healthy balance will be restored.
This is a bit gross… More than 60% adults living in the West are subject to parasites present in their digestive tract. The parasites pay no rent and consume resources without offering any value in exchange. It is a good idea to be rid of them. We may see them departing your colon in during the enema, or maybe we will see them later in the toilet. When you have pass parasites, you will feel uplifted and liberated. It’s a big deal.

The Key to Excellent Health: Cleansing the Colon
Nothing has changed since Dr. John Harvey Kellogg said a century ago that “90% of diseases are due to improper functioning of the colon.
There is much talk today about the importance of colon cleansing, but how does having healthy intestines actually improve your health?
It has always been an axiom of naturopathic medicine and most forms of natural healing that the digestive system is the foundation for good or bad health. As naturopaths, we routinely assume that most people are constipated, no matter how many times a day they go.
In fact, nothing has changed since the great natural healer Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, founder of the Battle Creek Sanitarium in Michigan, declared nearly a century ago that “90% of the diseases of civilization are due to improper functioning of the colon.”
In 1987, I developed a four-phase, four-week colon cleansing protocol using herbs, electrolytes, probiotics, and nutrients. Since then, an estimated 70,000 people have done the self-care colon cleanse.
The benefits of cleansing are numerous. One user stated: “The main improvements I have noticed are energy levels, vision, hair, skin, mental attitude, ability to cope with stress situations—generally I’m a much happier and healthier person.”
Other benefits typically cited by users are the cessation of menstrual pain, migraines, and joint pain, fewer colds, resolution of lifelong sinus congestion, skin problems, and breast cysts, weight loss, and improved concentration, among many others.
Consider the following cases from our patient files:
Lisa, 55, had suffered from a skin rash for 35 years. She had consulted numerous physicians but nothing had reversed this problem. When the intestines are clogged and toxic, and the liver, too, is overburdened, toxins start backing up into the skin for elimination from the body.
By the time Lisa completed the colon cleanse, 95% of her skin symptoms had disappeared. We find Lisa’s experience replicated often; cleansing the colon frequently yields softer, more beautiful skin, with long-standing blemishes removed permanently in many cases.
Traces of an earlier illness often remain in the intestines as potential seeds for a recurrence. During a cleanse, it is not unusual to re-experience the symptoms of the former illness as these traces are purged from the body.
Lil, 42, who suffered from chronic bronchitis, could not exercise or even walk up stairs without wheezing. During the cleanse, she had a ten-day fit of coughing and wheezing, then it abruptly stopped and never returned. By emptying her intestines of old, putrefied matter, Lil had purged her body of the seeds of her recurrent bronchitis.
Margot, 47, had been beset by intense hip pain for seven years, such that she needed a cane to walk. X rays showed that the cartilage was worn off the head of the femur (thigh bone connecting to the hip bone) and the nerves in that area were pinched. Margot had tried numerous alternative therapies but was still relatively crippled.
Margot reported that on the second day of the cleanse, 50% of her pain disappeared and she no longer needed her cane; on the third day, she was able to perform gentle stretching exercises; and over the next several months, Margot’s pain continued to diminish leading her to declare: “For the first time in seven years, I’m seeing the reversal of the downward spiral.”
What happens in a colon cleanse to produce these benefits?
Merely consider three facts about the intestines. First, if stretched out to their full length, the large and small intestines together would measure 25 feet long. Second, the total surface area in the intestines (made larger by myriad folds) capable of absorbing nutrients is the size of a tennis court.
Third, the intestines can store a vast amount of partially digested, putrefying matter (as well as drugs and other toxic chemicals)—for decades even. Some intestines, when autopsied, have weighed up to 40 pounds and were distended to a diameter of 12 inches with only a pencil-thin channel through which the feces could move.
That 40 pounds was due to caked layers of encrusted mucus mixed with fecal matter, bizarrely resembling hardened blackish-green truck tire rubber or an old piece of dried rawhide. I call this mucoid plaque. This mucoid plaque, when it is removed during an intensive colon cleanse, often shows ropelike twists, striations, overlaps, folds, creases—the shape and texture of the intestinal wall.
Mucoid plaque may vary considerably, depending on the chemical conditions in a person’s intestines. It may be hard and brittle; it may be firm and thick; tough, wet, and rubbery; soft, thick, and mucoid; or soft, transparent, and thin; it can range in color from light brown, black, or greenish-black to yellow or grey, and sometimes emits an intensely foul odor.
One client I know, in the course of a month-long colon cleanse, passed a single length of mucoid plaque 15 feet long; another client excreted a total of 11 pounds of mucoid plaque during a cleanse. It is not unusual to pass a total of 35 to 45 feet of plaque, often in the last week. In our clinical experience of monitoring thousands of intensive colon cleanse programs over the last 14 years, most people pass a staggering amount of this strange substance.
I coined the term mucoid plaque, meaning a film of mucus, to describe the unhealthy accumulation of abnormal mucous matter on the walls of the intestines. Conventional medicine knows this as a layering of mucin or glycoproteins (made up of 20 amino acids and 50% carbohydrates) which are naturally and appropriately secreted by intestines as protection from acids and toxins.
However, mucoid plaque is different from the mucosal lining (mucosa) of the gastrointestinal tract. The latter acts as a necessary buffer to the gastrointestinal wall and as a lubricant for peristalsis; it is also responsible for the secretion of mucins which comprise mucoid plaque. The cells of the outermost layer of the mucosa (the epithelium) stay fresh and vital, renewing themselves every four to seven days.
It sounds paradoxical, but medical research indicates that mucoid plaque is a normal self-defense measure—natural protection from unnatural toxins.
Evidence indicates that mucoid plaque, with the possible exception of that found in the stomach, is unnatural to the healthy body and is found only after the body has moved away from perfect health and into a diseased state. The theory goes that if you were completely healthy, your system would produce no mucoid plaque because it wouldn’t need to.
When the body has been chronically subjected to (or put under attack by) drugs (such as aspirin or alcohol), salt, heavy metals (including dental mercury), toxic chemicals, parasites, harmful microbes and their toxins, and circulating immune complexes (immune cells locked onto undigested particles or foreign substances in the bloodstream), it produces mucoid plaque to protect itself.
The trouble is once the mucoid plaque is created, for whatever biologically important reason, it is not routinely excreted from the intestines. Instead, it lodges in the numerous folds and crevices of this large organ and can remain there for many years. Over time, the mucoid plaque grows thicker, firmer, and more widespread—colonizing, as it were, the tennis court-sized interior of the intestines. Old feces adhere to the plaque and are not removed during a normal bowel motion.
The plaque slows down intestinal action, both waste excretion, and nutrient absorption. It can harbor pathogens, including bacteria and parasites, which actually hide underneath the plaque; it may block the normal outflow of lymph and mucin drainage. It binds toxins to itself and contributes to bowel toxicity, slowly emitting toxins into the bloodstream. Finally, plaque creates a friendly environment for disease, in some cases for colon cancer and gastric carcinomas.
Gradually your immune system is weakened as the chronically toxic bowel environment destroys useful bacteria. Your liver becomes overburdened by the unprocessed intestinal toxins, and nerve meridian points in the intestines related to hundreds of other parts of the body are compromised.
A toxic bowel results in toxic blood and lymph, toxic organs and cells, and toxic function. The bowel “feeds” every organ, tissue, and cell in our bodies, so when the quality of feeding from the digestive system is contaminated or of poor quality, the cells and organs elsewhere in the body will be compromised and grow sluggish and inefficient.
So while mucoid plaque is “natural” in that the intestines produce it, it is most unnatural in that the presence of a large amount of it indicates a high degree of intestinal ill health. When the intestines are ill, you will be ill.
Is there a connection between old emotions and colon cleansing?
Yes. You will find that in many cases a colon cleanse will purge old emotions and attitudes stored in the intestines.
Consider this case: Jessie, 20, was a vegan yet was bothered by digestive problems and candidiasis. Candidiasis, or the overgrowth of Candida albicans in the intestines, is a condition often reversed by an intense colon cleanse. During the first two weeks of the cleanse, Jessie began feeling better, but the turnaround came in week three. Jessie passed what looked like three white cotton balls (presumably Candida masses lodged in her colon), and thereafter had no more candidiasis symptoms.
In addition to her physical improvements, Jessie had an emotional benefit as well. She felt an increase in willpower, a clarity in her feelings, a new desire to be of service to others, and a release of long-held resentments.
These points highlight an important aspect of colon cleansing. Many people, after completing a cleanse, feel energized, uplifted, and freed of old patterns, thoughts, feelings, and memories that have held them back. When a person is on a course of personal growth and wants to change their consciousness but is stuck in old negative patterns of thinking and feeling, there is nothing that will get them unstuck and change them faster than a colon cleanse.
In my observation of many individuals doing the colon cleanse, a negative state of consciousness is often, at an energy level, at the root of whatever physical problem they suffer from. Every thought or feeling we have has the potential of moving from the mind into the physical structure of the body where it can provoke illness. I estimate that about 70% of those doing the intensive colon cleanse will experience long-forgotten memories and buried emotions.
Often the memories and emotions surface into awareness with all their original charge and soon afterward you pass a large section of mucoid plaque. As it passes out of your body, so go the emotions. In most cases, you don’t re-experience those particular emotional memories.
Here is what I think happens. It is as though you can magnetize proteins or undigested food left in the intestines with certain thoughts and feelings. These proteins hold onto the feelings for as long as the proteins remain in the intestines, and the old emotions and thoughts continually radiate through the body and mind.
They remain literally—tangibly—stuck in your body, somehow bound up with the mucoid plaque and contributing, though not often usefully, to the personality. Both the individual’s biochemistry and psyche are continuously negatively affected by these residues of emotionally magnetized matter.
Let’s say you were 13 and had a traumatic or deeply embarrassing experience. At some level, every cell in your body was affected by the emotions of that event. It is conceivable that some intestinal matter imprinted by that experience remains in your intestines, wrapped inside mucoid plaque and bearing the memory of the original pain (even though you are now 45 and barely remember the episode).
The personality and one’s operating belief system, after all, are controlled mainly by a massive accumulation of past thoughts and feelings. To a large extent, intestinal matter helps hold these feelings in place. The colon cleanses, by purging the intestines of the mucoid plaque, flushes out this accumulation of old negative thoughts and feelings.

What You Can Expect
At Atmanjai in Thailand, where I worked as a detox consultant, we’d always say that doing a cleanse is the most important health tool you have in your hands today.
Because of all the processed food (sugars, salt, fat, preservatives, additives) and chemicals you are exposed to (cosmetics, medication, polluted water and air), the level of toxicity in your body is at an all-time high. No wonder you put on weight and have difficulty coping with stress. Your ability to relax and get a good night’s sleep is a thing of the past. Or maybe there’s no energy to get started with an exercise routine? Constipation, the skin problems, the digestive discomfort, and the list goes on. You gotta cleanse, baby!
Doing a Cleanse
A cleanse will improve your health. A cleanse will ease your mind and heal your heart. A cleanse will restore every system of your body. Details? Here’s what is in it for you
As we mentioned, the chemicals present in the factory-made foods you eat, the personal care products you use, the air you breathe, and the water you rely on for keeping you alive—all those chemicals have a negative impact on your health. Your digestive system, in particular, suffers the most. Therefore, during a cleanse it makes sense to remove the irritants and restore your digestive tract back to its good shape and function.
When foreign-to-the-body chemical compounds enter the system, the body’s response may be to secrete mucus and fat to surround the dangerous molecules with. The mucus creates a systemic acidity and congestion; you are no longer able to eliminate waste from your body. On the outside of the body, this will clearly manifest as extra ‘blubber’. It will show up on the scales as extra pounds. That’s when a cleanse is needed to clear the congestion and eliminate the mucus. What happens then? Your body returns to its ideal shape.
No More Food Cravings
If you would like to reduce cravings, a cleanse is the way to go. Many processed foods are stuffed with laboratory-produced chemicals which stimulate the right parts of the brain, other foods feed the bad gut bacteria, other ones spike up your blood sugar. Some time after your cleanse, you will notice that many of the cravings are replaced by an appetite for clean foods
As you take a break from processed foods and stimulants, and as you include certain super-foods and botanicals during your cleanse, your energy levels are restored.
Reduced Constipation and Bloating
Constipation and bloating are so common today that you may think it isn’t possible to live without them. But don‘t despair just yet—your cleanse will bring your bowels back to harmony.
If you are able to incorporate healthy habits of having easily-digestible foods and regularly add digestive aids such as the apple cider vinegar, or maybe some dietary supplements such as a probiotic—bloating and constipation are eliminated.
We’re sure you know many people who depend on alcohol to relax. They may also depend on stimulants, like coffee or sugary soft drinks, to get started with their day, then need more coffee to get through the day, too. A cleanse helps rest your adrenal glands and balance the hormonal chemistry of the body. First, you may have a headache… then, you feel good.
Release Emotional Blocks
A cleanse may trigger different emotional states. Because certain addictive foods are removed from your daily eating routine, and because the bowel is cleansed with colemas, you may feel sensitive for a while. Or you may feel emotions which you haven’t felt for some time. This is normal and needs to be observed. You can learn many new things about yourself as you clean your body. The process isn’t always easy, but it is always useful long term. You release your emotional hang-ups, if any, and grow.
(During your cleanse, it’s good to do some yoga and meditation practice, those may be a big help.)
You may already know there’s a link between your gut and the brain. The clearer your gut, the clearer your mind. It’s that simple.
The benefits of a cleanse show up already during the program. You’ll love seeing how your eyes recover their spark and the puffiness under your eyes or chin recedes. These signs are just the outer manifestations of a deep cleansing process that is happening all throughout the inside of your body.
A well-executed and properly organized cleanse should be followed by the creation of healthy habits in your daily life. That’s the hardest part for many of us!
