I tried 7 days of enemas to support my thyroid and liver and I had a spiritual awakening

My fascination with liver health was stirred when I read Medical Medium and Thyroid Healing by Anthony Williams - you may have heard about his work and a 30-day celery juice experiment I wrote about that radically upgraded my health. I continue to drink celery juice first thing every morning, and now, I’ve added in enemas to the mix, to detoxify my liver and in turn, support my thyroid, immune health and overall longevity.

 

Why enemas?

 

At first, I was was scared to stick a tube up my butt. Let’s be frank - it can feel awkward. But - no pun intended - it has become a self-love ritual I have learned to love, and look forward to each week. I have learned to love and appreciate every inch of my body, and my butt and my gut especially!

 

The feeling of lightness and clairvoyance I feel after each enema has been remarkable. All the brain fog and joint inflammation I had been experiencing has vanished!

 

Something important to mention is that many are given a supplement protocol when thyroid, adrenals, liver, and/or gallbladder are poisoned. However, without actually getting to the root cause of the inflammation - which is the liver, gallbladder stones and mucoid plaque - although the nutrients may help, they actually can’t penetrate as deeply as they would when the sludge is removed from the liver, gallbladder, and digestive tract.

My story is not unique. Thousands of people have experienced similar results and even more miraculous results - curing cancer, reversing autoimmune disease, and so many more ailments that Western Medicine would send them to surgery, chemotherapy, radiation or a heavy dose of antibiotics for.

 

As a wellness leader and thyroid health expert, I feel it is my responsibility to know and try the holistic practices available to us that may not be commonly known or mainstream. In my quest for evolving my own knowledge and using myself as a guinea pig, I completed a 14-day chakra healing cleanse to prepare my body and mind, and embarked on a 7-day Liver & Gallbladder flush and cleanse at an eco-community down the street from my home in Nosara, Costa Rica.

 

Nosara-Jungle-Costa Rica

My intention for this journey was to understand why I was still having recurring episodes of morning brain fog while I am super healthy and active - especially as I do not consume caffeine - except matcha of course, which has potent health properties, eat an abundance of local organic fruits and vegetables, am soy-free, corn free, grain free, alcohol free, substance free, the list goes on. Plus, I wanted to understand what the discomfort in the left side of my abdomen was coming from, and why I would burp air through my lungs constantly through every yoga class.

 

Everything changed when I began organic coffee enemas on my own at home since I moved to Costa Rica in December. Why? Well, I live in a jungle. It is common to pick up a parasite, fungus, or bacteria here, especially if your immune system is compromised and your digestive tract is trapped with toxic sludge. Plus, I remember years of taking laxatives, both over the counter and herbal, any time I travelled or was away from my normal routine because I was so constipated. I wish I had known then the power of enemas.

 

I love to keep my body clean - in fact, so much so, it has become my work. So, once a week, I’ve been enjoying a daily pipa (coconut water) cleanse paired with a morning coffee enema, thanks to a beautiful easy at-home enema kit made by Foret Cleanse. I was so surprised with how simple and clean the process is, that I do truly love to treat myself to it.

 

Combined with the naturally active lifestyle I live here, Vitamin D on my bare skin every day, ions from the ocean, organic tropical fruits and vegetables packed with phytonutrients, antioxidants, proteins and fiber that I eat, drink clean oxygenated purified water, I have cleared my body from years of damage that I had accumulated from a high-stress city lifestyle, vaccines, antibiotics, prescription medication, oral contraceptives, processed foods, refined sugar, gluten and animal proteins contaminated with growth hormones. For years, life was passing me by, and I was not having fun. It’s no wonder I was so sick before.

 

My weekly ritual has become a habit made holy. I massage my entire body with my Radiance Body Oil - which was created with all organic essential oils to prevent inflammation and support hormones, light sage, incense and palo santo as I state my intentions for releasing brain fog, fatigue and tapping into my inner medicine woman. It has become a holy practice as I hear angelic guidance and clear intuitive messages during my enemas.

 

How does this happen?

 

You've probably heard of the brain-gut connection. When we get nervous, the first place we feel it is our stomachs. The same thing goes for stress, anxiety, and often sadness. And when we feel shame or resentment surrounding our stomachs, our brains think we're in danger—and this causes them to cut back on nonessential function, such as digestion, to focus on survival.

 

The abdomen, where our digestive organs are housed, is one of the main energy and power centers of our body, home to three chakras that influence our health, our energy, and our emotions. In addition to delivering oxygen and refreshing the blood supply, gentle stomach massage or Ayurvedic Abhyanga treatment can release blocked energy and feelings that may be contributing to our abdominal and overall tension.

 

And who doesn’t want to feel light, clear, and powerful?

 

This is precisely why my soul guided me to go even deeper for a week-long mind, body and soul cleanse in the heart of the jungle.

 

The process:

Daily and often two daily enemas infused with spirulina, garlic, coffee, aloe vera and probiotics.

Juice and smoothies with all local, fresh ingredients and superfoods including noni, turmeric, moringa, chaga, reishi, and chlorella

Morning yoga and pilates classes to stimulate movement and release stuck energy

One-day liver flush consuming Epsom Salt in water and drinking a big cup of olive oil and fresh pressed grapefruit juice

 

The results:

A deep richness in my skin tone, more lustrous hair, an overall feeling of illuminated shine and glow, an aura that can be spotted a mile away. A deeper understanding about what was going on in my body, loving my body for her resilience, and receiving more clarity on my soul’s purpose on this planet.

 

It was not starvation. I was surprisingly not hungry at all! In fact, I felt very nourished and content.

 

In my liver flush, I passed gallstones - lots of little tiny ones, through bowel movement. It wasn’t painful at all, and actually felt quite satisfying to feel trapped energy get released, freeing my digestive organs to work more efficiently for me.

 

How fun is it to do an enema during a jungle thunderstorm with the enema stall window overlooking jungle trees and wildlife as you release toxic sludge and stress? Really fun!

 

If you have been experiencing any of the following symptoms or similar conditions, you mostly have numerous gallstones in your liver and gallbladder, according to extensive research, as explained in The Amazing Liver and Gallbladder Flush by Andreas Moritz.

 

  • Thyroid or other hormonal imbalances
  • Menstrual or menopausal disorders
  • Adrenal fatigue
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Obesity or trouble losing weight
  • Bloating and gas
  • Food cravings
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Trouble sleeping, insomnia, not feeling rested
  • High cholesterol
  • Heavy metal detoxification
  • Candida, parasites, bacteria and frequent infections
  • Skin disorders
  • Chronic disease
  • Muscle stiffness and joint inflammation
  • Infertility
  • Low sex drive
  • Sciatica
  • Puffy eyes and problems with vision
  • Multiple Sclerosis and fibromyalgia
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Cancer
  •  

Also, a side note I really feel called to mention, as I worked with many prenatal yoga clients and moms-to-be in New York and Los Angeles, and saw many friends and clients sadly suffer from miscarriages, one of the main reasons and unfortunately one that is little talked about, is liver toxicity.

 

Impaired lymphatic drainage from the female pelvic area is also responsible for suppressed immunity, unbalanced hormone levels, menstrual problems, premenstrual stress (PMS), menopausal symptoms, pelvic inflammatory disease, cervicitis, all uterine diseases, vulvar dystrophies with growth of fibrous tissue, ovarian cysts and tumors, low libido, infertility and genetic mutations of cells leading to cancer growth.

 

There is significant research on this topic, and how to safely perform a Liver and Gallbladder Flush in the book, The Amazing Liver and Gallbladder Flush by Andreas Moritz.

 

Consistent enemas combined with a liver flush will keep my body working like a well-oiled, clear, strong machine. Which is exactly what I need to continue to live a life of service - our planet is going through a major shift and needs me and it needs all of us to feel liberated and beautifully vibrant so we can be warriors in this new age.

 

I’d love to guide you to understand the root cause of your symptoms - especially if you have tried everything and nothing has worked.

 

Know this: You are not a victim of your diagnosis or the attack your body has been feeling. Your body is speaking to you! Let this be your spark to tune in deeper. If hearing this makes you feel inspired, I wholeheartedly invite you to explore these practices - yoga, active lifestyle, cleansing and enemas - in the jungle. This December 11-18, I’ll be joining Anne Skjoth, a thyroid cancer survivor and plant-based chef, to offer you a Thyroid Yoga Retreat, Cleanse and Teacher Training at the beautiful Vivo Nosara. I’d love to guide you through a nourishing journey with daily meals, tonics and smoothies, thyroid yoga classes, workshops, and plenty of rest, reflection and rejuvenation on the beach and in nature.

 

Once you step away from the manic life, or a life “in the matrix” where you don’t fully feel fulfilled, supported, heard or understood, or doctors think you are crazy, it’s time to look within.

 

Take a moment to introspect:

What old stories of suffering do you cling? What habitual patterns have you been holding on to that are keeping your stuck? Where are you missing sweetness in your life?

 

Your body is crying out to heal.

 

It is time to tune in, and you are strong and resilient!

 

You were born for a life of love, lightness and liberation!
