This book was written for the benefit of colon hydrotherapists seeking to understand the connection between a physical colonic and the emotional body. It also serves as sensitivity training to ensure we as therapists are always respectful to each of our clients, and continue to support their physical and emotional safety during a session.

WORKING WITH THE EMOTIONAL BODY
As colon hydrotherapists we are mostly taught to work with the physical body. My hope in writing this book is to share my clinical experience of working with the emotional body while accessing and stimulating the physical. As I have touched on earlier, when a client starts to share about a painful experience in their life, either past or present, and they watch as they release physical waste while releasing emotionally as well, they begin to connect the dots between the emotional and physical bodies. This connection can be very powerful for them, especially if they are experiencing disease, dysfunction, or just generally not feeling well. I often share with the clients my belief that we can shift our perspectives from seeing illness as a “bad” thing – to an understanding and acceptance of the wisdom of our body aiding the healing of our emotional issues through physical illness.
When we feel stress, our bodies go into a ‘fight or flight’ response. When this happens, our bodies slow down various bodily functions in preparation to fight or flee. It is a protection mode that is innate in each of us. When we experience stress for long periods of time or if we constantly experience tension within, our bodies have the very difficult task of trying to live within the ‘fight or flight’ response. Unfortunately, our immune system often takes the hit when it becomes suppressed. By allowing ourselves to see illness from the perspective of healing emotional issues, something begins to happen. When we relax the tension and stress we feel around our illness, it allows our central nervous system to take a break. Our immunity improves because it is no longer being suppressed by the natural protective mode our body goes into as a reaction to stress. The body is quite amazing, as it can take a beating for a long time before it tires out. And then all hell breaks loose. From the perspective that our bodies are loving us and encouraging us to heal by allowing an illness to surface, it is telling us that it is now time to deal with emotional issues we may have suppressed for a long, long time.
I often wonder if we would ever look at our emotional issues if it weren’t for the consequences that we suffer as a result of our behavior and the illness that it may produce in the physical body. Even with the physical body compromised, it is still easy for us to point to many other things that are causing the illness. We stay very protective of our emotional bodies and understandably so. If we allow ourselves to crack open the very box in which we keep our deepest, darkest, most painful feelings, we could feel as though we are literally opening Pandora’s box. It can be terrifying to allow ourselves to experience feelings that caused us so much pain that we needed to bury them deep within ourselves as a way to avoid feeling how awful it was for us the first time around. By the time we are adults, most of us have our coping techniques down to a science, and God help anyone who challenges them. I’m not saying that we are even conscious of this occurring. Many of us aren’t aware we are protecting ourselves to this extent. The problem with this coping technique is that we are not meant to suppress our feelings forever. At some point, we will start to have experiences that slam to the surface those things within us that we need to heal. This can show up as a “set up” in our relationships, whether with people, food, and/or money. It may also show up as an illness or physical dysfunction.
I truly see this as a beautiful part of the human experience. We are unique and fortunate to be able to live on this planet during this time and be part of a collective society where we get to not only heal ourselves, but in doing so, we heal others as well.
We are meant to feel and express love. That is our birthright.
