I recently researched bowel health for an article and interviewed colon hydrotherapist, Sue Twiggs. When I first saw her website, she said something to the effect of ‘the most miserable people in the world have improper elimination’. I see the website has been updated since but she does say this now:

It is normal to have a bowel movement 2 – 4 times per day, 2.5 % of the world’s population do, therefore most of us are full of shit.

I also love her description of the Constipated Person:

• Attitude to life always rushing never time for yourself, or your bowel…ignore toilet call, lose gut brain connection.
• Accumulation of emotional baggage unable to discuss/display emotions, holding onto the crap in our lives. Can also be sub-conscious or childhood memories baggage.
• Fear by letting go of faeces will bring up past unhappiness or hurt, so holding on to crap again. Amazing results are achieved with colonics as one lets go.

Are you miserable, tired, anxious, and stressed to the max?

Detox in Bali Day 1: Shit happens

Okay, so I know this post is well overdue. It’s been over 2 months now since I actually did my detox in Bali and over a month since I wrote the first post in this series. I won’t lie. Life’s busy and getting busier each day.

Many of you may have forgotten about my detox series but here I am, back to remind you that I did do a mini detox in Ubud and it was fantastic. So, let’s get on with what happened on day 1.

I wake up eager to start the day even though I had a fitful night. I regret not bringing my fleece onesie along. I didn’t expect it to be so cool. But, there’s no time to dwell on that. It’s the first day of my mini juice cleanse and I’m pumped to get started!

I arrive to the Kush Spa just before my 8 o’clock appointment. I pour myself a glass of water from the fountain and sit back in a wooden chair. It’s hard and uncomfortable, kinda like what most people think a detox will be.

The deck of the Colonic Hut looks onto a small rice field. It’s dry and brown but the birds love it.

A petite woman arrives and heads to the door. I sit up in my seat.

“Hi, are you Andrea?” I ask.

“Yes. You must be Jennifer,” she responds. “Follow me and we can start.”

Her accents suggests she is American and her smile shows that she is friendly and approachable.

She shows me to a small office just inside and to the left of the main entrance.

After some chitchat Andrea gives me a questionnaire and leaves the room. It’s basic health stuff until I get to this:

Draw your poop
