Originally from New York, I moved to Puerto Rico as a young toddler where I learned to embrace the islands’ cultural life and traditions. I have vivid memories of the many natural remedies my parents, grandparents as well as neighbors used for common colds or everyday minor conditions. It was in those early days that I developed a strong interest in the wonders of herbal remedies and cures. During my adult life when my health started to fail as I struggled with gut issues, autoimmune disease, and faced a toxic medical condition which nearly destroyed my life and could not seem to be solved by conventional western medicine, I desperately took back control of my health. I began to seek alternative treatment to find the root cause of my illness. I researched and read endless stories that inspired and motivated me to seek naturopathic treatment.
After a year of treatment with nutritional supplements and herbal diet therapy, and energy work my body responded and it was clear to me that the body only needs to be reminded of its own healing power to restore itself back to health. Natural mind and body care became my new life path. This ignited me to study all things holistic.
My own healing has fueled my passion to promote wellness by identifying the unique aspects of each client. It is imperative to introduce non-toxic, natural therapies to restore a mental and emotional and structural balance. The body has an inherent ability to maintain and restore health. My belief is honest practitioner-client communication to encourage each individual to make informed decisions to facilitate the healing process, remove obstacles to cure and identify treatments to enhance healing. It is more effective to teach than to treat.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my two sons and daughter. At home you will find a daily home-cooked meal, a good informative book, and creating healthy recipes and natural concoctions to share with family and friends. A good mix of yoga, meditation, exercise, nutrition, and quality sleep are priorities in my daily schedule. I encourage my family and clients to create forms of self-care that give them joy and energy throughout their days as well as the rest of their lives

How do I prepare for a colon hydrotherapy session
Before and after?
We recommend that you eat light the evening before and day of your colonic session. Lightly steamed or sautéed vegetables, fresh juices and soups are good choices. Take it easy on your system. Keep your exercise light as well. Drink plenty of pure water. Give your system a little retreat time.
You want to refrain from eating for two hours before your session. If you need a morning appointment and you are a person who needs to eat in the morning, plan your schedule to have a light but satisfying morning meal, and then come in to begin your session two hours later.
What happens in the Colon Hydrotherapy procedure?
The procedure itself usually lasts 45 minutes. During this time, water continuously flows into your colon. When you feel full, like you need to go to the bathroom, you just let go and allow your body’s natural peristaltic movement to propel the flow of water and waste out of your system. You will discover your body’s natural rhythm and flow in the process. The system allows you to control how long you hold the water in and when you release it. We recommend you relax and go with your natural flow.
What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon hydrotherapy, also known as Colonics, is the process of infusing purified temperature-controlled water into the colon, where the water will loosen and soften fecal matter, allowing it to easily flush from the colon. At NIHA, we use an FDA-approved open system device
How the Procedure Is Done?
Before we talk about the indications for and use of this particular method, we need to have an understanding of the hydrotherapy equipment used in our clinic. The procedure is done using up-to-date equipment currently used in the United States. It is a closed system (with viewing window) that has been approved by and registered with the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration).
colonic irrigation takes about 45 minutes (by law);
a unique disposable nozzle that is connected to the equipment is inserted into the rectum COMPLETELY PAINLESSLY;
a certain quantity of appropriately warmed water is gently injected into all the compartments of the colon using a small-diameter disposable hose, following which the colon contents are discharged from the body through a larger-diameter hose. In the second part of the procedure, the hydrotherapist uses massage therapy on specific sections of the colon and on the valves of the gastrointestinal tract.
The procedure is completely hygienic, there is no odor, and it has a calming effect on the nervous system and fully respects the aesthetic sensibilities of both the client and the hydrotherapist
Only at our clinic we offer every client to get a dose of high-quality probiotics after the procedure (if desired).
