I’m a Colon Hydrotherapist in Bend
The picture you see on this page is one of my daughter and I taken last year in Bend. She, as any mom can relate to, is my entire world.
When I lost both my parents to cancer I realized I needed to make some changes in my life, not only for me but more importantly for my daughter.
I begin to really take a look at my lifestyle and realized that what I thought was “healthy” maybe could use an update. This lead me to look closer at the colon, digestion, and it’s importance to my health.
I started reading, researching, taking classes and reading even more down the path to becoming a colon hydrotherapist. I believe that being educated and finding our own balance are the key ingredients in reaching our goals and trying our best to obtain and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Balance. That is a great word. I have great respect for both traditional and alternative medicine. Growing up with a mother who was a nurse and a father who strictly believed in alternatives, I found that there was merit in both. And again, Balance was key.
I hope that I can not only inspire my daughter to learn more and find balance but that I can also help and inspire others in Bend and throughout Central Oregon.
First and foremost my inspiration came from my dad, John Barton.
He unknowingly inspired me to not only respect western medicine but to also embrace alternative practices as well. He spent over forty five years digging the trenches for what we now know and accept today in as alternative medicine including muscle testing, reflexology, acupressure and Bio Kinesology. He never gave up, even when he became ill he was still researching, testing and finding his way to help others through alternative medicine.
I’m grateful for my Dad for being my best friend and for giving me and all of us so much!
And for my mom whose beauty and wisdom taught me to always find the good and that laughter was always Key!
