How I Do Home Colonics
Tara Carpenter, NC.
Holistic nutrition for people on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.).
My first colonics were done in tiny, dorm bathrooms with college friends while experimenting with “water, wheatgrass, and brown rice fasting”. I did not do another until I was 30 years old and diagnosed with a stubborn case of systemic yeast overgrowth that brought on chronic bloating, acne, and fatigue. When a friend lent me Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.), by Donna Gates,
I knew this way of eating was the answer to my prayer …. inside this book was a chapter on colon cleansing and how doing colonics can bring balance to yeast, bacterial, or viral overgrowth. I learned that if I adhered to the healing foods promoted on B.E.D. then after a short period of time the body will begin to naturally go into a cleansing mode and release pathogens (i.e., viruses, bacteria, yeast) into the intestines.
Colonics help keep things moving along.
