I recently went to see a Naturopath in town. As I am 24 and have been battling with acne off and on for years, I'm getting a bit tired of being chained to this topical or that topical and have been wanting to attempt a more natural and holistic approach to acne. This doctor has a background in "traditional" or "western" medicine, but now practices naturopathy, holistic healing, and colonics.
So we did some blood work, and lo! my triglycerides are INSANELY high (i've known that, actually), along with my cholesterol. D'oh! Dr. Ayala has determined that it's my liver that really needs some flushing, and I've started on a week-long simple fast leading up to a colon cleansing on Monday.
I know people have differing views and opinions on colon cleansing, but I really think this will be beneficial for me. I've been feeling like doing a cleanse for a while now.
After the cleanse, he's going to start me on a strict diet of low carb and I'm not sure what all -- but we'll work together on it -- I'm in favor. I think it'll be a good restart for my system.
I'm curious what your experiences are with naturopaths? Have any of you done a colon cleansing? How did it go for you? Did you feel it was beneficial?
Thanks so much, have a great day!
