With good friends you can talk about boys/girls, with best friends you can talk about poop!


I am very proud and excited to share my adventures of last week. I took part in an intensive Colon Hydrotherapy Training course at Prime Vitality School of Colon Hydrotherapy as a practical instructor under the leadership of my teacher Tinesja Vanel, a member of the International Association for Colon Hydro-therapy (I-ACT) and the Academy for Naturopaths and Naturotherapists. Tinesja is a NBCHT – National Board certified Colon Hydro-therapist as well as an I-ACT certified Instructor, holding the highest possible qualifications in her profession.

Prime Vitality is an I-ACT registered school, I-ACT being the USA based International Association of Colon Hydrotherapists.

New therapists were trained on the most advanced colon hydrotherapy equipment on the market: the Aquanet EC-2000.


The training is very intense, almost 12 hours per day, consisting of theory and practical classes. Each student performed 10 colonics to fellow students as well as real clients: volunteers and loyal clients of Prime Vitality Wellness Centre. Most of them have been very familiar with the colonic procedure for many years as it proves to be very beneficial for their overall health and energy level, also helping many to deal with serious health issue like IBS, psoriasis, acne and insomnia. Over time,  it has become a regular  part of their health maintenance routine.

All of the client participants were highly satisfied with the treatments they received and gave students high marks, ranging from 8.5 to 10.0 out of 10. Some of the clients admitted that it was the best colon hydrotherapy session they ever received.

However, the very first client-volunteer was Monkey. It is the veteran colonic recipient of the school.

Monkey is always ready for his colonic.

The colon hydrotherapy profession got 4 additional members! Great health enthusiasts who are now ready and confident with their ability to perform high quality treatments.

Who are these new colon hydrotherapists? What can make a person choose this profession? I’ll give you a short overview (without mentioning the names).

Administrative worker with a background that involves a diverse array of jobs from teaching English in Japan to working as an assistant dance instructor to operating heavy equipment, she’s received many colon hydrotherapy treatments in her life and as a result fully understands the benefits of the treatments. Now her passion is health and healing, one she is following by studying Colon Hydrotherapy.

Family Doctor from the Philippines, she now works part time as a clinic assistant in one of the city’s naturopathic clinics and has been sent to take this course so she can begin providing treatments in the clinic. She appreciates colon hydrotherapy’s potential to aid in the detoxification of the body.

A Clinic Manager and Registered Holistic Nutritionist from Uxbridge, Ontario, where she works at the Centre for Biological Medicine. She writes: “Over worked and underestimated. That is how I view and would describe our incredible digestive system, especially the intestines. In general, people tend to eat whatever they want, whenever they want without any expectations of it having any affect on their well being… I don’t just view it as a quick job at cleaning the colon, but it is also an opportunity to educate. Having the rare opportunity to have an individual come to you for help and then being able to assist them immediately and into the future to improve their health and maintain it; that is my interest.”

Registered Aromatherapist from Comox, BC on Vancouver Island. She runs a private massage and healing arts practice. She was hired on contract at the retreat on Vancouver Island that sent her to do this training. She writes “Although this is not something I would have thought of on my own, I am pleased to be able to be trained in this useful skill. I have experienced colon therapy prior as a necessity to overcome intestinal distress, which was very effective.” She writes that she’s an advocate of natural healing and that colon hydrotherapy is necessary for detoxification in Ayurvedic medicine.

I am so proud and grateful for the opportunity to be one of the expert instructors for this course and being able to assist these health professionals in reaching accomplishment in the field of colon hydrotherapy and colon health.

Colon Hydrotherapy is a rare profession. There are not many of us in the world. It is important to maintain a high standard of performance of this procedure for the benefit of our existent and future clients, who are trust us with their health.
