Darlene Holloway, founder of the Alternative Health Center of Cary, has acquired many healing skills over the past three decades that have eased the burden of chronic illnesses for a legion of clients.
Her compassion and expertise are reflected in her recognition as a national leader in the field of colon hydrotherapy. Her many honors include selection as Colon Therapist of the Year by the International Association of Colon Therapists in 2009. She now serves as an at-large member on the organization’s governing board.
“For example, many doctors recommend colon hydrotherapy for their diabetic patients,” notes Ms. Holloway, “often as a first step in treatment. Type 2 diabetics are often prescribed one or two medications to control the processing of insulin. A healthy diet and a regular exercise program are of great importance in managing diabetes, and it’s vital to ensure that the colon is clean and functioning well. Colon cleaning helps the digestive process and the absorption of nutrients, of significant value in managing diabetes.”
And, she notes, colon hydrotherapy combined with a consistently healthy diet is highly effective in easing such chronic conditions as arthritis and even depression.
Colon hydrotherapy is the safe, gentle infusion of warm filtered water into the rectum using no chemicals or drugs. It is a restorative procedure which is both relaxing and effective—an extended and more complete form of an enema. “Colon hydrotherapy extends beyond the rectum to cleanse the entire large intestine,” she points out.
Ms. Holloway has spent her professional life demonstrating that a healthy colon is essential to a healthy body. “Conventional diets comprised of refined, processed foods, high in saturated fats and low in fiber, contribute to many problems associated with the large intestine,” she notes, “such as diverticulitis, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, gallstones, kidney stones, and more.
“The elimination of undigested food material and other waste products is as important as the digestion and assimilation of foodstuffs. Waste material allowed to remain stagnant in the colon results in decomposition of these substances and increases bacteria and toxins.”
The colon, she notes, “contains the largest concentration of bacteria in the body. Waste material allowed to stagnate alters the proportion of healthy bacteria to disease-producing bacteria, increasing the potential for disease. The purpose of the colon is to remove this waste material by muscular contraction called peristalsis. Effects of a stagnant colon may include halitosis, skin blemishes, headaches, low back pain, and lack of energy.
“Experts tell us that better than 85 percent of all cancers are caused by environmental pollutants,” Ms. Holloway notes. “Without a nutritionally rich diet that nourishes and assists in the removal of these substances from the body, over time we lose strength and vitality. Immune systems become suppressed, with dire consequences—sometimes including manifestations of cancer.
“Importantly, colon hydrotherapy is a simple, inexpensive, and remarkably effective way to prevent cancer and a host of other disease conditions. During a colonic, toxic material is broken down and flushed away so it can no longer harm the body or inhibit assimilation and elimination. Through massage, the skilled colon therapist is able to work loose and eliminate toxic waste. When the colon is cleansed and healed, the wellness of the whole body is greatly enhanced.”
