Doing a Home Colonic
Tara Carpenter, NC.
Holistic nutrition for people on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.).
My first colonic was in a tiny, dorm bathroom with friends in college while experimenting with “water fasting”. I did not do one again until I was 30 and diagnosed with systemic yeast overgrowth. I felt stumped on how to heal such a stubborn health condition.
The relentless bloating, acne, and fatigue motivated me forward as I wanted to feel better and when a friend lent me a book called The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.), written by Donna Gates, I knew this was the answer to my prayer as a chapter was dedicated to how colon cleansing can bring balance to yeast, bacterial, or viral overgrowth.
When a person adheres to the healing foods promoted in this diet the body goes into a cleansing mode and is triggered to “dump” pathogens (i.e., viruses, bacteria, yeast) into intestines.
Colonics help to keep things moving along ….
