Vibrant Wellness - My Story
Hello, my name is Jennifer and i'm the founder and owner of Rockland ColonCare and Hydrotherapy, an inner wellness center in Bardonia, New York. I want to share with you my journey back to vibrant health and why I decided to practice colon hydrotherapy.
I started having health issues as far back as the 1990's. I suffered with temporal mandibular joint disease, migrating joint and muscle pain, extreme fatigue, neuropathy, migraines and back pain.
I consulted with dozens of medical doctors and specialists over the years. I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid and Psoriatic Arthritis and Mixed Connective Tissue Disease , IBS, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and lupus.
The NYU center of joint diseases treated me with Methotrexate and Biological drugs. I tried Enbrel, Cimzia, Intravenous Remicade and steroid injections. Unfortunately, my health continued to deteriorate. My symptoms were so severe that I spent months at a time unable to get out of bed. After a decade of suffering, I saw a doctor that was convinced I was struggling with a tick borne illness, despite the many negative lab results for Lyme . We re-tested my blood with a speciality lab for Lyme and the results came back positive for Lyme and a few other tick borne diseases called co-infections. I was so relieved to finally know the root cause of my symptoms. Soon after, I consulted with a lyme literate doctor and I began antibiotic treatment. The treatment for lyme wasn't an easy road. I learned that long term IV antibiotic treatment on the one hand helped with some of the lyme symptoms but created a bunch of other health issues. In many cases the Lyme infection mutates and becomes resistant to antibiotics. I also developed Clostridium Difficile, a potentially life-threatening infection caused by over use of antibiotics. I had to stop the treatment and heal my Colon.
My goal now was to rebuild and strengthen my immune system. I explored alternative medical treatments including, IV lipid Phosphatidyl Choline treatments, Chinese herbal medicine, bone broth soups, nutritional supplements, Juicing and an organic diet. I started to see improvement but knew i needed to further detoxify my body. I finally tried Colon Hydrotherapy and everything changed. For the first time in over two decades I felt energetic and renewed. It was the final piece of my wellness puzzle.
I was so excited and had hope that I could have my health back again. I learned everything I could about natural ways to heal myself and became passionate about health, detoxing, wellness and nutrition. I understood that the key to improved health was to cleanse my body of all the toxins I had been exposed to. Everything you're exposed to matters, from the food you eat, to the products you use on your skin and in your home, to the medications you take, to the environment you live in. I now believe, that the human body has the ability to heal itself with the right kind of nourishment and a regimen for cleansing and detoxification. I now wake up full of energy and enjoy life.
I'm passionate about helping others obtain wellness by sharing my knowledge and experience. My approach to colon hydrotherapy is always gentle. I'm trained and certified by the International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy to practice in New York State. I have created a beautiful space for my clients to feel comfortable, relaxed and safe. I promise to listen non-judgmentally to your story and provide ongoing health support when you seek it.
