ABOUT:
Goop is one of the rare places on the web where food, shopping, and mindfulness collide-where the ever-evolving intent is to make every choice count. We’re all resource strapped, so goop hopes to surface the very best experiences, recipes, products, and advice. Launched in the fall of 2008 out of Gwyneth Paltrow’s kitchen, goop was originally conceived as a weekly e-mail newsletter. Its intent was two-fold: GP wanted a place to organize her unbiased travel recs, health-centric recipes, and shopping discoveries for friends, and she also wanted to get her own questions-about health, fitness, and

the psyche-answered. Now, goop has become a place for GP to introduce some of the incredible experts who have mentored her throughout her life to a wider audience, and a place where readers can find suggestions about where to shop, eat, and stay from
a trusted friend-not from an anonymous, crowd-sourced recommendation engine.

Colon Health – The Inner Cleansing

When I mention the word ‘Colonic’ many people feel a little uncomfortable. However, there is so much to benefit gained with a cleaner, healthier colon.

Many people will say doesn’t my system do a good job of eliminating on its own? After all I have a bowel movement everyday! Truthfully, for many of us what goes in doesn’t necessarily all exit the body successfully.  Most of our clients remark at how surprised that so much came out during the length of the session.

Here is a quote from Dr. J.H. Kellogg, who administered Colonics to his patients in the 1900s, he touted the benefits of colon hydrotherapy as a means to clean the internal body naturally, while eating a high fiber diet and many fresh vegetables. “We are literally poisoning ourselves into illness when the bowel evacuation is deficient,” said Kellogg in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 1917.

The colon may be the most overlooked function of the body because it naturally eliminates on its own. However, after years of building up impacted waste along the colon’s wall, the toxins may get reabsorbed. If this happens, like Kellogg believed, it effects the body’s tissues and the cells become capable of triggering a variety of illnesses.

Most people are trilled to report having one bowel movement a day, yet when we eat 3 meals a day plus snacks the reality is that our system is holding on to more waste then what is eliminated. Ideally, we should have a bowel movement after each meal. It should leave the body with ease and it’s supposed to feel like a true empty feeling when accomplished. Think belly button can touch your spine feeling!

When was the last time you felt like that?

The digestive system can become sluggish due to poor eating choices, late night eating, dehydration, emotional stress, medications, a low thyroid, hormone shifts, overeating and more. This can lead to an impacted colon that is congested and bloated. When the colon is stressed the whole body will be affected by the toxic overload due to the toxins being reabsorbed.

There are many benefits associated with Colon Hydro therapy:  less constipation, clear thinking, increased energy, better absorption of nutrients, a better mood, weight loss, radiant glowing skin, improved immunity, increased oxygen flow in the blood stream and a clean colon.

Peristalsis is the wave-like motion of the entire digestive tract.  Without good peristalsis, waste matter can back up in the colon and begin to putrefy through bacterial action, which gives off toxic wastes that can paralyze the colon and make it sluggish. As Colonics strengthen and tone the colon, toxic acids and gases which irritate the nerves and muscles of that organ are eliminated, thus encouraging a return to vibrant health with normal peristalsis and regular evacuation.

 

Problems with the other major organs of elimination, the lungs, kidneys, skin and liver often improve as you continue your colon cleansing program. These organs are relieved of handling the overload, and can return to their own work, better able to perform their proper function. For this reason, colonic irrigation has often been called the forgotten key to health.

7 Reasons To Get A Colonic

 

1. What Goes In Doesn’t Necessarily Come Out. Dehydration, late night eating, over-eating, consuming food lacking fiber, and stress can cause constipation. Colon Hydro-therapy wipes the slate clean of unwanted waste that is retained in the colon to support a healthy, youthful YOU!
2. Get That Radiant Glow & Healthy Skin.
Look & feel your most attractive best & everyone will wonder what is your secret to having a gorgeous complexion. Colon Hydro-therapy can be helpful to improve skin problems such as Rashes and Acne.
3. Have More Energy.
Our lives can be very stressful and demanding of our energy. Most of us could use a reservoir of energy to meet life’s challenges. Colonics provide oxygen into the blood stream that brings a better chi. Feeling sluggish? The removal of waste in the colon can help feed your trillion of cells more oxygen to provide more energy. Healthy cells equals a younger YOU!
4. Look Younger & Support Weight-loss.
Got a bloated belly? Time for a colonic! Colon Hydro-therapy helps to remove unwanted gases and trapped food. Our cellular body can hold excessive carbonic gases that can make for an overall bloated look. Clear out the colon to support a detoxification that can create a leaner looking body.
5. Detoxify & Cleanse Your Body
Every organ in the body can benefit from Colon Hydro-therapy. Remove toxic build-up & the lymphatic system & blood perform optimally. Create less toxicity with a healthy diet, periodic cleansing & Colonics!
6. Eliminate Constipation
Tone the colon with Gravity Colonics to create a strengthening of the bowel for better elimination which includes a fiber rich diet of whole foods. A colonic session is like taking your colon to the gym!
7. Feel Calmer & More Peaceful
Check out a biology book with a picture of a colon. There is a thread that can be seen. That thread is the nervous system. Often, several pounds of fecal matter can be retained in the colon that can create an irritation that can contribute to anxiety, a negative attitude and a gloomy disposition. Colonics can bring some light into the darkness to create a calmer YOU!

My Salad Experience On Flight 795.

 

While flying to Austin recently, I had an uncomfortable feeling come over me.. Here, I share my experience. Prior to my flight, I had given myself ample time to prepare a simple and delicious organic salad with avocado and lemon juice. Once on the flight a woman seated next to me remarked on how good the salad looked. I felt a sense of self love pulse through my veins and replied that it was worth the extra effort. As I chewed and enjoyed each bite, I watched the flight attendant approach each passenger to take their snack and beverage orders. When he reached my seat I asked for a cup of hot water and ‘no’ on the snack. He offered a variety of chip a

saladnd cookie options. He later returned serving the passengers their orders. I received my cup of hot water and dunked my organic herbal tea bag to seep. I have flown on planes throughout my adult life and never quite had this mental occurrence. My ears heard an orchestra of soda cans opening and plastic rustling. I witnessed an entire plane full of people gorging on junk food! I know I have seen this before. It’s just that this time a sense of deep sadness came over me that I was alone in my making myself a priority. I contemplated whether the chips were part of a food addiction issue, or perhaps, a rare indulgence or the reason be that people were simply hungry or possibly they all just wanted free fake stuff the eat.

 

Each person has their story of their relationship with food. People of all ages and backgrounds embraced eating this processed crap. We talk about making America great and to be a better country but, is this really possible if we have poison and grease suffocating our cells?

A child accompanying her mother sitting in the seat next to me ate a doughnut before boarding the plane, and later consumed a small bag of chips on the plane. Her mom walked on board with a triple coffee and asked for another cup while on the plane. Her poor adrenal glands! Will she still have any left by the time she reaches age 60?

 

So, here on this plane I stopped my mental chatter to write it down and share the absurdity of life today in America. It is considered normal and completely acceptable to toxify ourselves on a regular basis with absolutely no consciousness. Although, I am not perfect in what I eat, I will say that most saladof the time I am doing it healthy and raw vegan. We see more and more suffering in the world. More mental illness, more disease and pain, more medication, more addiction, and a general disconnect to ourselves. When we live unconsciously and we disconnect, we are creating a space for fear, negativity, and harm to ourselves, to others and this affects the world. Our everyday choices make a huge difference to change what we see as ‘normal’ to make for a better world and a good life for all.

 

Want more energy? More clarity of thought? To be conscious rather than numb, stimulated, down? Eat raw food. Eat clean food. Eat primarily plants. Exercise. Want to stop drinking coffee? Drink green juice. When you change your food your craving will change and so will you. Want a better you? Love yourself. Make every choice an act of love. How? Listen to your inner guidance. Your Inner GPS. What is the true voice verses the fake voice? Act compassionately, embrace pleasure, be generous, take time for your self-care, meditate, and surround yourself with supportive positive people. Turn to happy, healthy, pleasurable acts not stuffing it with processed fake stuff. Play like a child, dance, celebrate with eating the grapes and not the wine. It is all a choice we make. Every action has a vibration. A force. Make it an act of good will. Before ya know it I might look over and see everyone eating salads with happy faces on the airplane!

 

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

Interested in attending my classes but it never seems to work out?

 How about we make the date the right time for you? I love inspiring others to live a healthy life! I have been teaching classes on wellness and detoxification since 1995 and it is my privilege and joy to share information with you. I thought it an interesting idea to offer you the opportunity to plan a class or a series of classes that can occur at Gravity East Village or at a location near the Manhattan area that works for both of us.

Think about this for a moment. Have you ever thought it a grand idea to bring me into your office and you gather a group of your co-workers for a class on Juice Fasting? How about we meet at my office and you bring your group of family / friends for a night of learning about ways to give up coffee, sugar, and processed foods? Perhaps, your concerned about your loved ones that are powerless over food addiction and nothing would make you more happy then for me to talk to them about ways to have more energy, to eat more veggies, to start juicing and to cut back on animal protein? Sounds good to me!
Get them together and let’s plan a date!
I require a minimum of 6 persons to plan a class at an affordable rate that will include all hand-out information. My classes run from 2 – 3 hours long.
Contact me by email donna@gravityeastvillage.com if interested and we can discuss the details. I am generally available on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday evenings. Sunday and weekday hours can be arranged to plan a class.
I am available to meet with you for a private consultation reviewing any of these topics. I meet with clients for Nutritional Consultations at Gravity East Village and can meet over skype or facetime.
I appreciate you checking out my message!
Best,
