Colon Crunch 2

These Colon Crunch movements exercise my intestines & colon to get things moving.  They also serve to massage my troubled back & spine. 


I have to start with this.  Now that I’ve seen this video, and my friend, Aubrey’s dog, Poppy, do the same thing, I’m now thinking these movements are Universal! 


My video (to follow) emphasizes the colon, intestines, back. Strong core orientation. I believe these movements help digestion, bowel movements, toxic expulsion, plus massages & strenghtens back.

I’m a dancer. This is how I deal with my pain & toxin removal—all at once!  For me, it’s another avenue to the soul & healing.  Movement is so important.  Why not infuse it with wonderful music?

It may not be readily apparent, but there is a part where I am moving on my fists (like tennis balls, but handier 😎 ) to massage deep my periformis region, which tends to get tight.

My Enema–The Musical (Moon Night)

Basic enema instructions suggest massaging belly in a counter-clockwise direction to get the fluid further into the colon and perhaps dislodge debris & parasites from the walls of the colon.  It is also suggested to elevate the hips somewhat to again get the fluid up into the colon.


What I think I’m doing with these movements is dislodging & moving fluid.  But also, lifting my vibrational level through music.  It turns into an exercise for core muscles, and a back massage. I often stretch & support my neck.  As my aged spine is collapsing, I view this as stimulating blood flow, in general, as well as  encouraging fluid to flow into my spinal disks & hopefully elongating my spine. We lose 2-3 inches of height during a lifetime due to spinal collapse.  Building muscle in the core helps support a compromised spine.

I also believe these varied movements move the small intestine (15-33 feet long) to further dislodge plaque, parasites, worms. il_340x270.395383884_ivva

Enema Inverted


My goal in this series of videos is to introduce more people to the wonders of the healing enema.

shoulder stand Rose 2

No expensive drugs, antibiotics, surgery–just the ancient art of healing through purging of bodily toxins using enemas. All the fake food, pesticides, GMO’s, sugars we are eating are slowly poisoning us.


Garbage in, worms should come out.

(There is a direct connection between your gut and your brain. Are parasites influencing you actions, health, thoughts?)


The normal first reaction is a bad face or covering the eyes and denying that one could have such things in oneself.

very ropey wormy


Ignorance will not lead to bliss in this instance.

Best Bath for Pain & Health


How important is Magnesium?      Important.

I'm Marvella.   Back Pain Survivor.

I’m Marvella.
Back Pain Survivor.

Mg helps the body regulate over 325 enzymes and is involved in many bodily functions, like muscle control, electrical impulses, energy production and the elimination of harmful toxins.

According to the National Academy of Sciences, American’s magnesium deficiency helps to account for high rates of heart disease stroke, osteoporosis, arthritis and joint pain, digestive maladies, stress-related illnesses, chronic fatigue and a number of other ailments.


A list of the benefits of Mg according to the Epsom Salt Industry Council include:

  • Improved heart and circulatory health, reducing irregular heartbeats, preventing hardening of the arteries, reducing blood clots and lowering blood pressure.
  • Improved ability for the body to use insulin, reducing the incidence or severity of diabetes.
  • Flushed toxins and heavy metals from the cells, easing muscle pain and helping the body to eliminate harmful substances.
  • Improved nerve function by electrolyte regulation. Also, calcium is the main conductor for electrical current in the body, and magnesium is necessary to maintain proper calcium levels in the blood.
  • Relieved stress. Excess adrenaline and stress are believed to drain magnesium, a natural stress reliever, from the body. Magnesium is necessary for the body to bind adequate amounts of serotonin, a mood-elevating chemical within the brain that creates a feeling of well being and relaxation.
  • Reduced inflammation to relieve pain and muscle cramps.
  • Improved oxygen use.
  • Improved absorption of nutrients.
  • Improved formation of joint proteins, brain tissue and mucin proteins.
  • Prevention or easing of migraine headaches. 

Studies show that magnesium is not easily absorbed through the digestive tract. The presence of specific foods or drugs, certain medical conditions, and the chemistry of a person’s stomach acid can render magnesium supplements ineffective.

Epsom salt, ie. hydrated magnesium sulfate, is rich in both magnesium and sulfate.

Sulfates are important in the formation of brain tissue, joint proteins and the proteins that line the walls of the digestive tract. They stimulate the pancreas to generate digestive enzymes and are thought to help detoxify the body of medicines and environmental contaminants.

Both magnesium & sulfate are more easily absorbed through the skin than the stomach. 

The good news is it’s cheap & found at most drug stores. And it’s relaxing.

As little as two cups of Epsom salt and a12 minute soak three times per week can make a difference in your health.

However, as a serious member of the Lyme “Society”, I’ve received many tips on maximizing an epsom salt bath.      

 The formula I have been using is as follows:


The quality of your bathing water is essential. You take in more water in the bath/shower than you do in drinking /cooking. And you are going to be soaking in it for 20 minutes.

 If you are on municipal water, wise to get a filtered shower head, like aquasana. 

Municipal water is full of chlorine, flourine, discarded medications, etc. You need to minimize your exposure to these added toxins. 


Next, the ritual:

Put 2-4 cups of epsom salts

1 cup hydrogen peroxide (“the worlds safest all natural effective sanitizer)

a generous sprinkling of baking soda (helps hold toxins in the water rather than being reabsorbed)

into warm (not hot, hot) clean water.

Before getting into tub, dry brush skin with natural bristle brush or loofa.  Dry brushing helps our lymphatic drainage system remove toxins from our bodies.  Brush towards the heart from neck to toe.

Soak for 20 minutes. Meditate, read, listen to music, relax.

Before draining tub, extract a quart (4 cups) mason jar of soaking water.

Next, shower thus:

30 second rinse of cold water (AHHH!), the 1.5 min of warm (ahhh…), 30 seconds cold (AHHH!). (Helps drain lymph)

Towel dry and dry brush again.

You will feel good.  

Next, take that 4 cups of warm bath water in the mason jar and coarse chop ¼ cup fresh ginger with skins on and put in this jar. Let soak covered for 24 hrs. in refrigerator. 

The next night draw a warm bath, and strain out the ginger and pour ginger infused water into bath. Dry brush and then Soak for 20-30 mins. 

Ginger can be stored in the fridge and re used for about 3-4 baths.

Alternating epsom salt bath with ginger bath every other night is a great way to relax, detox, ease pain, and improve your health, in general.


Other “soakers” put about four tablespoons of mustard & cayenne pepper in a sock and float that in the bath as well. Some others add herbals like Lavendar to the bath.

Placebo Effect


For those in doubt of our self-healing abilities, what about the placebo effect,

recognized by all the medical establishment.?

If those in the control group show signs of healing without the actual drug being tested being administered, then

didn’t they somehow heal themselves?

The placebo effect points to the importance of perception and the brain’s role in physical health.” (Wikipedia)

A placebo described as a muscle relaxant will cause muscle relaxation and, if described as the opposite, muscle tension. A placebo presented as a stimulant will have this effect on heart rhythm, and blood pressure, but, when administered as a depressant, the opposite effect.” (wikiepedia)

So what is the placebo effect, but people affecting their own healing? Doctors triggering our unconscious healing powers. I believe we can enhance that ability.

First by acknowledging it.

Don’t be shy.

Everyone has a back. These are core movements mostly. Young and old can benefit. Your back muscles support your spine. 

 I’ve always related to music by moving. I don’t know a measure, but my body knows the movement. I’m thinking I can suggest or demonstrate movements to music that others can follow, and maybe we can avoid the knife, laser, whatever that has become so prevalent these days.

 Music and movement go beyond logic and language. They stimulate more parts of our brain. Parts where creative ideas and self-healing come from. There is music therapy, dance therapy, so why not world movement therapy?  I’m not a physical therapist, but have been advised by several.  

 Moving to meditative, but inspirational, motivational instrumentals can heal your body and your soul. Listen for it. We need some soulful awakenings. This world is only going to improve through a growth in human awareness. We cannot spend our way to a better world. We need less emphasis on $$$ and more emphasis on ^^^.



No Surgery Please.
