My husband and I recently moved into a new home in a rural area.
Right away I noticed water accumulation in the kitchen sink. I sped to the store and bought a bottle of drain cleaner, poured the entire bottle down the drain and let it sit overnight. In the morning I ran the faucet hoping that whatever was clogging the drain had been dislodged and could pass on. All seemed well at first, however, after several days the problem appeared again! I immediately understood that a quick fix was not the appropriate course of action.
I needed to determine the underlying cause of the clogging before attempting to find a solution.
It was time to call in professional help. When the plumber cleaned our drain, he found a large accumulation of grease, hair, and rice in the pipe elbow. It was old gunk, deposited there by the previous homeowners, who likely didn’t realize they were not using the drain properly. The plumber was laughing that I was trying to fix it with a drain cleaner. He cautioned that the only way to avoid clogging the drain was to use the pipes as they were intended, for water only! Often times we look for the quick fix to repair symptoms (the clogged drain), and in doing so we neglect to address the root cause.
Later on, I thought about the experience, comparing my kitchen plumbing to the human body.
As a Colon Hydrotherapist, many of my clients have tried to fix their clogged “internal plumbing” with laxatives. This does not solve the problem of “clogged pipes” especially if the body is overloaded with foods that are sticky, hard, dry and toxic. Our intestines do not just hold these toxic substances, as kitchen pipes do – they also absorb the toxins they are holding. I now felt curious about my clients’ knowledge around food and nutrients.
- What exactly are they eating? Real, whole foods or processed foods?
- Do they know their body’s capabilities in absorbing and processing nutrients?
- Do they understand that how they do or don’t handle emotions directly impacts their system of elimination?
My observations helped me understand that working as a Colon Hydrotherapist was only addressing a piece of the problem. Cleansing my clients’ colon was futile if they did not know how to support their digestive system with healthy food.
I became a Certified Health Coach to serve my clients in a more complete and comprehensive manner. Educating people on how to support their health with nutrient dense whole foods is the first line of defense against “clogged pipes.”
