Health Development Consults-
Pamela Gerry is a Health
Specialist who will share information with you regarding the Laws of Health, and what you can do to assist your body to heal
itself by following these laws. If we are not intentionally building good health, we are unintentionally creating poor health.
She will explain the benefits of using therapeutic juicing/ Green Smoothies as daily tools, and provide documentation
supporting the advantages of eating a diet made up of a preponderance of fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, fermented foods, sprouts,
non-medicated animal products, and starting to include local, wild plants. (Wild edibles can be thousands of times
more nutrient dense than any cultivated plants; are free; and are not polluted, nor genetically modified. [Ed. note-
If you can't tell which foods in your grocery store are genetically modified, ask the clerk for assistance- s/he won't know
either, but it will let the store know that consumers care about this issue.]) As a nurse, Pamela is trained to
'triage' basic complaints from more serious concerns and will teach you ways to assist your body to heal itself, to see if
it will respond to simple changes before you begin to investigate more complicated possibilities. Often times, simple
lifestyle changes can have enormous impact on our level of vitality, and it might be as basic as getting an extra
hour of sleep each night, removing sugar from our daily fare, reversing our chronic dehydration, or considering
that we may have spiritual anorexia. (Many of us neglect our spiritual selves, and experience has shown that people
can be doing everything "right" on the physical level- great nutrition, good sleep, etc., etc., but if the spiritual
component is malnourished, that can override all else.)
Pamela has been living by the principles
she teaches since 1978, and has personally experienced the benefits of these tenets; homebirthed 4 Blue Ribbon babies; sailed
through menopause with no symptoms; takes no medications; and has blood values and vital signs all within 'normal' limits,
(well into her sixth decade.) Healthful living works!
Pamela can also help
you locate area physicians who are equipped to assist you using modalities you might prefer.
those interested in learning local wild food foraging, wildcrafting medicine, and primitive living skills, please
Pamela can refer you to any of the Fasting Institutes
in the US and give you an overview of the physicians who offer the service of water-only fasting for the reversal of serious,
life-threatening conditions. For common maladies, she can guide and support you using short term therapeutic juice fasts.
Pamela is certified to operate
the Aquanet EC 2000 colonic irrigation instrument.
She will provide all the equipment necessary for a relaxing, detoxifying experience.
Whether you are a "Health Nut" coming in for your monthly sesison, or someone who prefers to never again do the
dreaded Colonoscopy Prep, the Health Lyceum can assist you as you seek to secure the best colonic care available in the New
Colon-hydrotherapy is the perfect final touch for anyone doing a cleanse
of any kind. After herbs and supplements, juicing or periods of fasting do their work, irrigating the colon
assists the body to release all the products ‘dumped’ during the cleanse. Anyone doing a fungal
cleanse immediately appreciates the benefit of rinsing the dead yeast out of the system, minimizing the possibility of die-off
If you sense you are ‘coming down with something’, colon-hydrotherapy –
(CHT) - can evacuate the old material in the colon that would otherwise serve as a breeding ground for the invading pathogens;
can stop a process in its tracks.
Health maintenance programs that include regular CHT sessions, as well
as other modalities employed by “Health Nuts”, serve to enable the body to work at its peak performance.
Folks with digestive complaints notice that the GI tract often ‘settles down’ immediately after
a CHT session. Those with chronic constipation can find no better tool to assist them to strengthen and
train their colons back to regular performance. While it may seem logical to believe that using CHT will cause one to become
dependent on it, just the opposite is true; when we go to the gym and pump our muscles, we strengthen them; infusing water
and releasing it repeatedly over a 45 minute period, is like taking the colon to the gym. As the water gently stretches the
striated muscle fiber in the wall of the colon, that fiber then relaxes as soon as the water is released. This
“pumping” action serves to improve performance by increasing muscle tone of the colon. Regular clients report
improved function using CHT.
For those with compromised livers, CHT greatly assists the liver to
purge itself. As the colon de-congests during a session, the hepatic vessels allow the liver to ‘dump’
bile, as seen by the therapist as brightly colored yellow, green or orange fluid. This waste material removes
dead cells, spent tissue and filtrates from the liver.· Chemotherapy patients have less nausea and fatigue while using CHT concurrently, as the ‘body
burden’ is lightened, while all the organs and systems have, collectively, much less to process metabolically.
Lymphatic vessels dump into the colon and irrigation stimulates and assists lymph circulation.·
Chronic low back ache
has been relieved when an impacted colon is evacuated completely, thus removing pressure from surrounding spinal nerves.
Sinuses may begin to drain immediately after a session, as the hydraulic pressure in the system shifts, and can initiate
drainage throughout the body.· Marathon runners and serious athletes report achieving their best performances
post-CHT treatment.· For those with diverticulosis, there is no more effective method available to wash the
fecaliths from the haustra. (The fecal bits from the colonic folds.) Many MD’s
are now advising patients to use CHT to reverse this situation before it develops into diverticulitis.
Colonic Irrigation/ Colonoscopy
A Colon-hydrotherapy (CHT) session lasts about
45 minutes. If you are a regular client, the condition of your colon will be well-hydrated, and intentionally
cared for, so you will likely evacuate within 20- 35 minutes. If this will be your first session, one of
three things will happen:
- This typically happens to people who have sluggish, infrequent elimination. (Once every 2-3 weeks...)
This is the result when the colon is so dehydrated, congested, and full of gas, that the entire session is used just
trying to bring the contents of the colon to the ‘saturation’ point, by irrigating, filling and releasing water
for 45 minutes. Once the saturation point is achieved….
· Partial evacuation - During a CHT session, there is a
process that takes place regarding the effect the water - (solvent) - has on the stool. If you have fairly
regular elimination, you will likely see a “meltdown”- evidence that the water is affecting the contents of the
colon- by noticing changes in the appearance of the waste water. First, the water will begin to turn tan, then brown, then
darker brown, and bits of ‘debris’ will begin to appear. You may see “boulders”- (rounded chunks of
stool that have been in the colon for a longer time and have had their liquid content drawn out, compacting them, and causing
them to take on the rounded shape, rather than a ‘log’ shape- the presentation of stool that is transiting in
a timely fashion), or the ‘logs’- the shape that indicates well-hydrated, moving material. Depending on the condition
of your colon, you may achieve….
· Complete evacuation - the goal
of a CHT session is to make it all the way through the 4-5 feet of accumulated stool. We will know if we
accomplish this by ‘reading the water’- noticing if we see ‘flaky food’ and both colored and clear
‘mucus’ toward the end of the session. Both are endemic in the “Home Stretch”; the ileo-cecal region
of the large intestine. The irrigating water cannot go any further than this because the ileo-cecal valve
is a “one-way” valve. When complete evacuation is achieved, it is common to see bile releasing as the liver
purges itself. This is an added benefit of CHT, as there are not many ways to assist the liver to clean itself, but
as it detects a change in the pressure of the colon, it 'lets down', via its hepatic vessel connection, and purges spent
cells, old tissue and filtrates that have accumulated. For those with compromised liver function, CHT is a tool
that is totally unappreciated. Coupled with therapeutic juicing, the regeneration possibilities are unsurpassed. (The
liver does regenerate in optimal conditions. )
Please watch this 3 minute video that details CHT for Colonoscopy preparation:
It is a great tool to share with your doctor to make him/her aware of the efficiency
and excellent visualization provided by this type of treatment.
To insure that clients do
“clean out” the day of their colonoscopy, a trial run CHT session is scheduled before your actual colonoscopy
appointment. If you have poor results, it is necessary to schedule a series of CHT sessions- (often 3)
- to get the colon into the condition that will respond completely on the appointed colonoscopy day. (You will also
be instructed regarding what other factors contribute to a well-hydrated colon.) If you achieve complete evacuation
on your trial run, then you are a known quantity and able to schedule your pre-colonoscopy prep the day of your colonoscopy
appointment, allowing only travel time in between. This is a “win-win” situation for patients
and doctors; patients no longer have to be tied to their bathroom for 12 hours during the dreaded laxative prep, and doctors
report “excellent visualization” from CHT prepping.
Do you understand that we are composed of 10 % cells and 90% bacteria?
Many of the symptoms we present with are caused by an imbalance in the composition
of the bacterial component. Due to many years of antibiotics being over-prescribed, most people are living in a state
of "dysbiosis", a chronic condition that disrupts most of the systems of the body, but primarily, the digestive
system. Pamela will help you identify these symptoms, and teach you how you can regain "homeostasis ", (correct
balance), using diet, probiotics and anti-fungal agents, all naturally derived, and non-toxic.
