Frequently, new clients will ask me, "What on earth made you want to do this for a living?" It's not a surprising question from someone who has yet to experience the power and potential of colon hydrotherapy. Here at LYT, we each have our unique answer to that query, but our stories share one thing in common: we all started as clients, and our lives were so positively effected by this therapy, we wanted to share it with others.

My journey with this work started in 2001. I was 39 years old and those who knew me, considered me a health nut. For ten years I had been following what I thought was the healthiest lifestyle possible. Five smaller meals a day, lots of chicken, slamming protein shakes, in the gym 5 days a week. I also was taking tons of vitamins and would drink vegetable juice occasionally, so I thought of myself as a 'holistic fitness guy'. Yeah, I had muscles, but I thought, "After all this work, shouldn't I feel better?" My digestion and elimination were off, I had dark circles under my eyes and my joints started feeling creaky. I wanted more energy and less heaviness. "What do you expect, you're almost forty!" was a common response.

I had heard of colonics a few years before and was intrigued by the idea, but a bit scared to try them. Knowing of my curiosity, an old friend introduced me to Cyndie, then working at Chakra 17. I started experimenting with her diet suggestions and a month later decided to schedule my first colonic. After the session I felt great. This is what I was afraid of? I realized it wasn't the colonics I was scared of; it was what my friends would think. (You guys out there, I'm talking to you! Don't let that stop you!) The following week, I attended a lecture by Chakra 17 founder, Gil Jacobs, and was blown away by the truth and simplicity of what he said. I went home that night and threw away my protein powder.

Within a few months of following their advice of food combining, juicing and colonics, I was amazed at how much better I felt: more energy, mental clarity, and overall lightness. I actually felt better than I thought I could ever possibly feel. I knew I had found the truth. (Fortunately, a few years later when I decided to leave my career in film editing to become a therapist, I had the great privilege to be welcomed into the Chakra 17 family, where I worked until it closed.)

In late 2005, the power of the therapy revealed itself, again, very close to home. My father, then seventy-seven years old, was diagnosed to be in the early stages of prostate cancer. A radiologist adamantly pushed for treatment. Eight weeks of radiation, five days a week! Luckily, his primary doctor said he could wait three months before he started. My dad decided to use that time to see if diet change and regular colonics could make a difference. His commitment and positive attitude led to amazing results. In three and a half months, he was cancer free, having done absolutely no chemotherapy, radiation or surgery.

I am fortunate that life lead me to the wonderful and gifted people at Chakra 17, who exposed me to a simple system of healing and healthy living. I look forward to sharing what I've learned and continue to learn, with whoever is sincerely interested.

I feel extremely blessed to now be working with Cyndie and Joyce and the rest of the wonderful team at LYT. It is a pleasure to go to work in such a beautiful space and be surrounded by people I respect, love and admire. It never seems like a 'job'.
