I have always been a health nut, just ask my kids. Exercise, healthful eating, and hydrating well have been important priorities in my life for many years. I was first introduced to colon hydrotherapy twelve years ago when I went through a 7-day cleanse at We Care Spa in Desert Hot Springs. I personally felt the benefit of colon hydrotherapy in my body and my mind was opened to the potential long-term benefits of this modality. During that week I went to every class offered about gut health. I read everything I could get my hands on, talked with the therapists, and really immersed myself in the experience. That is where my excitement began and it has continued through the years since.
I was diagnosed with diverticulitis in 2018. After four emergency room visits within a year, I was eventually sent to see a surgeon who stated that I needed surgery to remove part of my colon. Because of my prior introduction to colonics and natural health, I wanted to take a more holistic approach to address the issue and this is when my journey with colon hydrotherapy really began. I made some adjustments in my diet and started regular colon therapy sessions. I am happy to say that I haven’t had an occurrence of diverticulitis in over three years.
In 2017 I first became a client of Health2o. Gradually, as my body healed, I began to picture a day when I would have the privilege of helping others with this modality that has been so meaningful and transformative in my own life. After training with France Robert of the Internal Environment Institute, I completed my I-ACT certification and NBCHT credential and am beyond excited to be a part of the team at Health2o.
I married my high school sweetheart in 1981 and we have two children and four grandchildren together. I enjoy cooking, gardening, hiking, and painting in watercolor. I am also an avid fan and enthusiastic spectator of all the sports my grandchildren are involved in.
