I’ve been on a quest to get my body back to wellness this year. I have fallen off of the horse – a lot – which is disappointing and frustrating. So here I am again ready to saddle up and keep trying. After my energizing B 12 shots, I knew I had to do something about how grotty I was feeling inside. My diet has been crappy – too many carbs, chocolate and wine (sounds heavenly right!!!?) as well as eating late at night after an evening waxing clients. My skin was also beginning to show the signs of misuse as some you unfortunately see this in yourselves. What I wanted so desperately was to feel “empty” inside and get rid of all of the junk I had been storing in my increasingly wobbly tum!!! – a starting from scratch sort of feeling.
There really is only one road I could take to acquire this feeling and all fingers pointed to a “colonic”. I’ve had one of these before and it, pardon the pun, “sucked”!!!!! It was impersonal, painful and I left feeling as though I had been abducted by anal prodding aliens who didn’t know what “lube” was!!! Horrid!!
More recently, a pal convinced me that a place in Santa Monica called “Gentle Wellness” was really the only place to go to in Los Angeles. I looked it up and booked my appointment with “France” one of the owners. Let’s cut a long story short and get to where I’m in the room, lying on my side ready to get clean! In walks “France” – a registered nurse (she’s also Canadian which makes her even more cool!!) and uber friendly doll of a woman. She made me feel so comfortable for that hour that I didn’t even really know what was going on. I felt comfortable and not once little bit of pain. France is a dab hand at reflexology and also knows how to read your body when you start to stress. She didn’t leave my side the whole time and her hands worked on my muscles for the entire appointment.
I got some education about colonics – who, what and why. I also received another fabulous colonic the next week. So was I happy? YES!! Would I do it again? Yes… but not for a while. I won’t get addicted, I’m not that sort. I will also tell you this – my skin has never looked better, the whites of my eyes seem brighter and I feel like a million bucks. I definitely saw a difference in how I ate in that I just didn’t want to put any toxins (I mean other than a little good Scotch here and there…) in. I have much more energy, my pants fit better and I had no bloating left whatsoever. So those who tell me that I’m full of s**t, I am happy to tell you that I am not!
