Gloria de Boer, Advanced Colon Hydrotherapist
Internal Wellness provides colon hydrotherapy and colonics in Paso Robles. A colonic is a safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestine without the use of drugs. Colonics gently cleanse and exercise the colon by filling and emptying the colon with filtered and temperature regulated water. Every function in your body, physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual is dependent on the attention that you give it. The elimination of undigested or fermented food and other wasted products is as important as the proper digestion and assimilation of food. The colon has been referred to as the sewer system of the body. It is the place where we store the waste material that most of us would rather not think about.
Healing begins with detox; the average American stores 1-12 pounds of fecal matter in their colon. If this toxic waste isn’t rid of, it can cause disease and affect us emotionally. Colon cancer kills more men and women than prostate or breast cancer, so paying attention to this oft ignored part of the body is essential to life.
A colonic is very different than an enema. After the gentle insertion of a small tube, sterilized surgical tubing carries water in, and waste out in a gently pressurized system. Except for the brief insertion of the tube, you are fully covered during a colonic. There may be some slight discomfort if you pass gas, old waste matter, or have an extremely congested colon. Remember that if you have any doubts or fears, we are always happy to answer any questions you may have.
At Internal Wellness, we start with an initial series of three to six treatments. Years of improper eating habits cannot possibly by reverse overnight. More colon hydrotherapy may be helpful in cases of chronic constipation or a sluggish colon. Following the initial program, you and your therapist will find a program that is optimal for your colon health.

From the owner
My name is Gloria de Boer, I am a Board Certified I-ACT Advanced Level Colon Hydrotherapist. I became a therapist in 2006, getting my education at Northwest Career Institute in Las Vegas Nevada and went on to further my education at Internal Environment Institute in Santa Monica California.
I became a Colon Hydrotherapist after discovering what colon hydrotherapy did for my health after suffering for years with digestive issues. I became intrigued by the digestive system and learned the importance of keeping it healthy, hydrated and moving. I wanted to share the knowledge I have gained with others.
I look forward to working with you. Feel free to call me with any questions you may have. (805) 423-2719
