Reflections From the Inner Coast

After 20 years of clinical practice in colon hydrotherapy, I have watched this adjunctive therapy head so far into mainstream consciousness, that it’s really no longer simply adjunctive.  For the first time, most of the folks I take care of are quite healthy, and many more westerners are finally growing a colon consciousness: routinely drawing pertinent connections between their inner life and the state of their gut.

Indeed, the month doesn’t go by without some new and amazing research demonstrating the immense necessity of keeping your colon healthy.  New research was recently announced suggesting a functional link between Parkinson’s Disease and intestinal bacteria.  This Spring,  scientists announced that the bowel can make blood cells using its’ own stem cells.  Other studies have demonstrated how disturbed or dysfunctional bowels lacking very specific gut flora drive anxiety and depression, sleeplessness, and many other common and uncommon functional imbalances.

Since the sequencing of the gut biome, there seems no end to the incredible healing potential of the natural balance that can be consciously engendered there! And finally, many more than ever are interested in upgrading gut hygiene and becoming accountable to the real world as it passes through them.  This is a distinct shift from decades ago, when it was generally assumed that you are the one in charge of passing through the world, and not the other way around.  This is a good and timely shift!  Reducing the toxic load now and then is an incredible relief, especially when the environment passing through you is becoming more polluted.

It has been my experience that one can consciously create a margin for error in diet as well as disease and complications of aging by using regular colon therapy as one of many regulation therapies. How often? At minimum, twice yearly, as in dental hygiene. Once per month is not excessive.  Many folks time sessions around travel or integrate it with other health programs.  That doesn’t mean it cures anything.  It simply means you just feel better.  Chances are overwhelming that the extra 2 + pounds of luggage stowed in your colon is something you can put down with great relief in exchange for renewed vitality.  The surprise is the sensation of emotional clearance, the distinct sensation of letting go of all that is not you, and recollecting your best possible self. Colonic clearance is wonderful for practicing new intentions and turning over a new leaf.

Think of your energy body as a pyramid, and make sure your base is strong. Think about turning over your own new leaf this year. Just mention that intention for $10 discount on your next visit!

How what you eat directly influences your mental health

REMEMBER the last time you had a stomach bug and just wanted to crawl into bed and pull up the covers? That is called “sickness behaviour” and it is a kind of short-term depression. The bacteria infecting you aren’t just making you feel nauseous, they are controlling your mood too. It sounds absurd: they are in your gut and your feelings are generated in your brain. In fact, this is just an inkling of the power that microbes have over our emotions.

In recent years, such organisms in the gut have been implicated in a range of conditions that affect mood, especially depression and anxiety. The good news is that bacteria don’t just make you feel low; the right ones can also improve your mood. That has an intriguing implication: one day we may be able to manipulate the microbes living within our gut to change our mood and feelings.

Featured Friend – Kevin Lowey, D.C., Functional Medicine Man

Kevin walks his integrative talk!  Plus, he’s gentle, intuitive, kind and works quickly.  Very nice touch and thorough follow up.  High recommend for chiropractic and functional medicine right here on Cape Cod.

About Dr. Kevin Lowey

I have practiced chiropractic since graduating from Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, MO in 1980.  I set up an office in Newton Center, MA for 10 years with my twin brother, Dr. Ken Lowey, and sister in law, Dr. Anne Lowey.  My wife, Jane, and I moved to Brewster in 1990, and our son, Jake, is a graduate of  Nauset High School and RPI.   I am blessed to have practiced in Orleans since 1991.

I received my first adjustment at about age 6.  From that experience and seeing my father heal with chiropractic care from a ruptured lower back disc injury, I knew from the time I was in middle school I wanted to become a chiropractor.  I really enjoy caring for children- I adjusted Jake when he was about 1 hour old (wellness care at its best!) and have adjusted people from newborns up to age 98- I am still looking for my first 100 year old patient!

My specialties of care include applied kinesiology, activator, acupressure, laser therapy, nutrition, sports injury care, certified in Brimhall protocol, and most of all, wellness care.  I believe the future of each of us and our planet depends on knowing how we can keep ourselves well; not having lives of crisis care, “put out the fire”, health values.  If we can handle the 3 main stressors in life, (1) physical/structural, (2) emotional/psychological and (3) chemical/nutritional, we can have the life of our dreams.  And that, I believe, is why we are here- to live a life of excellence.

Please take the time to read our office mission statement- it is my honor to serve you here on your journey back to wellness!

Featured Friend – Cheryl Ferrari of Face Facts Healing Spa

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cheryl Ferrari.

Cheryl, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Cheryl has been an established esthetician in the Boston area for thirty years. In her years of training with various healing arts, she was always drawn to the beauty and healing properties of crystals. At her healing Spa, she has incorporated specially designed crystals to create an optimal environment for energy healing. Cheryl is fast gaining a reputation for her work in the health and beauty arena, breast health. Cheryl’s skill with lymphatic drainage combined with other modalities expedites post-operative healing of skin.

Cheryl Ferrari is a lymphatic drainage expert who utilizes the Phyto 5 energetic range of products. She was one of the first trained in the Phytobiodermie protocols in the U.S. In recent years, Cheryl has been working closely with natural health consultants, and thermographers to provide a closed circle of healing for her clients and has become the therapist of choice for breast health.

Cheryl has a zest for life who brings her nurturing quality as a mother and healing practitioner to her practice. She is truly akin to all things natural and energetic.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
30 years ago, alternative work was less understood. People would come to me for beauty treatments, but to their surprise they were also treated for lymphatic drainage, detox, and general healing. One of the biggest challenges was educating people on the benefits of my treatments.

So, let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Face Facts Healing Spa story. Tell us more about the business.
It’s a great two hours from the rest of the world. People leave 10 years younger in body, mind, and spirit. My full body treatments include customized lymphatic drainage, facials, bath therapy, and infrared treatments, which are designed to remedy and prevent inflammatory conditions on the skin and body.

My work is a combination of the principles of Chinese medicine, charting natal biorhythms, energy medicine techniques, including reiki, chakra balancing, vibrational therapy, aromatherapy, and natural healing energies. I use an energetic Swiss skincare line, Phyto 5, which includes organic colored clay masks with a high concentration of essential oils.

Ongoing education in the field of wellness and beauty has been my most passionate pursuit. I consider myself very fortunate to work in a field that I love where I can continue to educate myself and others on matters of health and beauty. Prevention is 90% of health and beauty, so my treatments are detoxing and cleansing which makes for a more beautiful you – inside and out.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I’m lucky that detoxification has been put on the map. People are much more health conscious and aware of preventative measures now than they were when I started 30 years ago. I feel blessed that I have tools to measure so many aspects of healing.

Pricing:

  • 1.5-Hour Facials $190
  • 4-Hour Cure $450
  • 2.5 -Hour Face & Breast Treatment $300
