UP YOUR HEALING GAME FOR THE BEST RESULTS: THE GRAND PLAN
I once thought I could get through my whole life without addressing my colon and my life-time of chronic constipation. That was until, at 53, I was diagnosed with uterine cancer. After much soul searching, I opted to forego a hysterectomy, chemo and radiation, choosing to first try detoxification therapy using a structured Food As Medicine Healing System. It would set me on a whole new path of learning how to relate to my body.
I wanted to get well with every fiber of my being, so I followed the directions of my mentor Dr Ann Wigmore who taught the healing rewards of deep tissue detoxification and cellular regeneration. She was adamant about the powers of colon cleansing to address constipation and toxemia, the root causes of diseases like diabetes, arthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue, candida and many cancers….
She taught that unless the body’s elimination channels are open and clear at all times, the best nutrition on Earth will not allow you the wellness you are seeking. If the exit door is blocked, such as when you’re chronically constipated, there is nowhere for toxins to go except to recirculate in the system, causing trouble to every inner structure in the body.
THE GRAND PLAN
To reset the inner compass, cleanse the body of toxic build up and allow health and reversal of symptoms to occur, waste products MUST be cleared from the cells, blood and organs seven days a week, week in and week out. To follow a structured healing system is a commitment but when it comes to cancer “There are no half measures”, taught Dr Ann.

When I began my healing journey I was so open, so willing, but like all newbies, I couldn’t have been more clueless. I am from New England, so this began as a stretch for me. If you are from other parts of the world you may not know that New England is the part of the United States settled by Puritans. Can you say “naturally up-tight”? You can bet we don’t talk about constipation, enemas or colon therapy in that part of the country. As in no, never. Anything having to do with elimination, or non-elimination for that matter, is a taboo subject. “That’s how we like it; private and quiet”.
But here I was, in this new world, asking “What did a proper bowel movement look like?” Like you perhaps, I did not know. I began studying the works of Dr Bernard Jensen, a pioneering hero in the alternative health world. I bought his book, “Dr Jensen’s Guide To Better Bowel Care”. I read it from cover to cover, and then I read it again. This early education began “raising my bowel consciousness”, to quote Dr Jensen.
GETTING DOWN TO THE WORK
I began a relationship with a Certified Colon Hydrotherapist to address my years of chronic constipation. Fortunately, true healing happens over time. Time gave me room to get comfortable with this remote part of my body.
I followed Dr Ann’s strict advice: I over-dosed on mineral rich organic fresh juices and I learned to make the living foods into power packed nutrient dense combinations as she recommended. Dr Ann’s promise is that her discoveries can heal the most chronic of diseases for anyone dedicated enough to try.
I turned my kitchen into a place that invited healing. I chucked out the fiberless foods that contribute to constipation and restocked the fridge with colon friendly foods high in fiber. Most living foods contain both soluble and insoluble fiber. These are the two main kinds of dietary fiber. Here is the break down and the Divine genius of how they work:
> Soluble dietary fiber is found in fruits like blueberries, grapes, cherries and bananas. Seeds like chia, flax and sunflower. Veggies like avocados, cucumbers and peas. Soluble DF dissolves foods into a gel-like texture. Under a microscope, soluble fiber looks like a sponge. And, like a sponge, it can absorb many times more toxins than its own volume. It grabs toxins in the colon and takes them out of the body. How amazing is that!!!
> Insoluble dietary fiber is found in foods like dark leafy greens, cauliflower, beets, celery, cabbage and carrots. These foods are also known as ‘roughage’, with tough cell walls. They not only add bulk to the stool but they act as “Nature’s Broom”, sweeping the intestines clean of unwanted bacteria, fungi and parasites. These foods are also know as “quick-exit foods”. They help waste move through your digestive tract more quickly for daily elimination.
Health Tip: When you make a commitment to upping your dietary fiber count, take it slow. Pay attention to your body. “Slow and Steady Wins The Race”, I was always told as a kid, and it holds true today…..It takes a long time to develop a chronic, degenerative disease and it takes time and patience to reverse such a condition. Create a counterbalance by consuming unpasteurized fermented foods daily. These foods will help repair the microbiome and starve out pathogens.
As I surrendered to the Divine Laws of Nature I began to win my health back, a journey open to anyone who is willing to start down a new path to wellness.
