is an account of my experience with Colon Hydrotherapy through Internal
Awareness with Gayle Bradshaw.
The short version
is that chest pains have disappeared. Stomach pains and headaches
have eased, in fact, many of the health concerns that were bothering
me have eased. My attitude has improved, I'm more positive, and I
have completely stopped taking any medication.
I started CHT
on December 13th, 1999 and eventually completed 16 sessions over a
five week period. Four were originally recommended. I had so much
success with the first four that I continued with a series of 12 more.
The following table shows the results of my therapy:

There were two
things that prompted me to try Colon Hydrotherapy: chronic stomach
problems, and deteriorating health. The pain in my stomach felt like
a knot, like a brick, in the middle of my abdomen.
have plagued me for years. I also had two tender spots in my abdomen
that showed up about a year ago. Chest pains have been with me about
18 months for which two doctors could not remedy.
I started experiencing
allergies a few years ago, which were getting worse, and for which
I was taking Allegra and Vacenase (a steriod inhaler) for the chest
pain. I was taking Provocol for Cholesterol and, oh yes, three Tylenol
at a time, usually daily, to get to sleep.
Physically I was not working
out nearly as much as is customary for me.
During the first
two weeks of CHT I stopped taking all my medication. I just didn't
feel like putting these things into my body.
At the same time, I dramatically
increased my water intake to 14 - 18 cups daily, and started drinking
fresh carrot juice. My chest pains had eased, as well as headaches
(though these have not entirely gone away). My allergic reactions
As for the cholesterol medication, I had cut down on
eating meat considerably, and was flushing everything out four times
a week, so I didn't see the need. A subsequent cholesterol test shows
it to be at 202, my lowest yet.
I can't say enough
how incredible it is for me to be rid of that knot and the associated
This goes for the chest pains too, which caused
me much anxiety. I really feel my health has turned around. There's
more work still to do, but I've taken a very significant step in the
Now let me say
a few words about Gayle, and the way she works. Gayle is very professional
and very caring. She gets right to the work at hand and helps you
through any rough spots.
I was as relaxed and comfortable as possible.
During the first few sessions, I experienced a retching I get when
I've pushed myself too hard. Gayle helped me through this. There was
some nasty something or other that made me ill, and expelling these
toxins during the first week took a lot out of me, I needed to rest
I was quite comfortable and glad to be able to rest afterwards
at Gayle's home before returning to work. The sickness passed as I
expelled more and more toxins. I feel so good about Gayle and the
way she works.
Her advice is
simple and clear:
- For two weeks
drink 10-16 cups of water daily (until I wasn't thirsty any more)
- Consider raw food and think about incorporating them into your diet
- Expect some flu-like symptoms as the toxins are released
- Feel more relaxed inside
- Hydration comes before hunger, you are always thirsty first -- drink
- Stop drinking coffee!
So that's my story.
I've had very good results with Colon Hydrotherapy and would recommend
it as a great step in healing a variety of health concerns. I'm learning
more and more about this aspect of caring for my health and look forward
to having a much healthier life.
