What is Mucoid Plaque and Why Is It Created?
The body creates mucoid plaque to protect itself from acids and toxic compounds
such as drugs (especially aspirin and alcohol), table salt, heavy metals, chemicals, antigen antibody complexes, and the toxins produced by incomplete digestion and absorption of carbohydrates.
Mucoid plaque is associated with carcinomas of the lung, breast, ovary, and gastrointestinal tract.
If you have mucoid plaque in your bowels, your body cannot function properly; coffee enemas won't be effective; optimal healing cannot occur.
The Optimal Health Network has developed 3 methods to effectively remove mucoid plaque from the colon.
Each of these methods can work alone, but to gain the most benefit, work through the entire 35-day program laid out in Kristina Amelong's Ten Days to Optimal Health
and take the Young Living essential oils specific to your individual needs. (If money or time are issues, start with one or two Young Living essential oils.)

More on How to Detox
How do people know or recognize the signs that they have dangerous toxins stored in their bodies?
If you are living in this century, on Earth, it is very likely that you need to detoxify your body. Most people are not aware of their toxicity levels because we are polluted over time and we slowly forget what it feels like to be healthy and energetic. A certain signal that we need to cleanse is when we are diagnosed with a chronic disorder, like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, fibroids, arthritis, fibromyalgia, or chronic fatigue. For many of us, frequent bouts of gas, bloating, or feeling run down are certain signals from our body that we need to detoxify. Even with no symptoms, aging itself reduces our body’s ability to detoxify. And, unfortunately, our world is getting more toxic everyday. If you wish to determine which toxins are stored in your individual body, use a Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis
What happens when you detoxify?
Daily living tends to drive toxins and diseases further into your body, while cleansing and healing lets these wastes and diseases surface and leave your body. Toxins and illness leave your body via your skin, your lymphatic system, your lungs, your colon, and your urinary tract. A classic cleansing response is seen when people quit smoking and they end up having a few "colds." Often, the symptoms are not of a cold virus at all, but rather the body’s way of throwing off the toxins accumulated in the body. Within all the phlegm leaving the body are many of the toxic, carcinogenic residues of cigarette smoking. This cleansing response happens for many, but not all. For all people, however, a DETOXIFYING PROGRAM BRINGS BETTER HEALTH. I have worked with thousands of clients since I became a colon hydrotherapist and I can most definitively say this is absolutely true: a DETOXIFYING PROGRAM BRINGS BETTER HEALTH.
However, as my last blog post speaks to, how you choose to detox
is critical to the useful of any individual detox program.

Spring Cleanse: What Is The Best Way To Detox?
Spring is the perfect time to embark on a bodily cleanse or to detox your body. You detox your body for many reasons:
- Detox to quit smoking
- Detox to quit drinking
- Detox to lose weight
- Detox to improve your mood
- Detox to increase your energy
- Detox to improve your health
But, what is the best way to cleanse, or detox, your body?
As Dr. Oz points out, "the body has its own extraordinary internal detoxification system. Here’s a brief look at three critical organs involved:
Your first line of defense against toxins is your liver, which acts like
a filter in preventing toxic substances contained in foods from passing into your
This organ has bacteria that produce both healthy and unhealthy
chemicals. You want to keep your colon flowing regularly since its main role is to
flush out toxic chemicals before they can do you any harm.
Like clockwork, the kidneys are constantly filtering your blood and
getting rid of toxins in the form of urine.
For a detox diet to truly work, you need to maintain these three key organs."
I absolutely agree with Dr. Oz! But, I have a few helpful tools to add to his detox diet
recommendations to support these three critical organs.
First, take the enema series.
Take one a day for a week, then every other day for a week,
then once a week for a month. The enema series, using therapeutic enema solutions like
Young Living essential oils, sea salt and coffee
, is an effective way to keep your colon
flowing regularly and assists the colon to optimize for healthy bacteria. The enema series
is also an effective way to help your liver with its incredibly important job.
Purchase enema equipment
Second, drink 1 ounce of therapeutic water per pound of body weight throughout the
You don’t need to buy expensive drinking water. Simply use filtered tap water, add
a pinch of sea salt
to each quart and a few drops of Young Living essential oils
Tangerine, Orange, Citrus Fresh, or Peppermint. Drinking therapeutic water is essential
for supporting all three organs.
Third, take the binding agent chlorophyll during the detox process.
The work of clearing
stored toxins from the body can easily overload the liver, colon, and kidneys.
Toxins take time to build up in the body. Again, as he states, "the body has its own
extraordinary internal detoxification system!" The body is designed to be able to detoxify on a moment-to-moment basis. It is the build-up of toxins that we address when we
embark on a detox program. Toxins took a long time to build up in your body; the most
important factor with a detox is to take plenty of time and support your detoxification
organs so you make certain you don’t just stir up toxins, which can cause toxins to drive
deeper into the body leading to cancer, heart disease, fibromyalgia, multiple chemical
sensitivity, and more.

Frankincense: Could It Be a Cure for Cancer?
- "Frankincense oil might represent an alternative intravesical agent for bladder cancer treatment."
- "Frankincense could revolutionize the treatment of cancer."
- "Treatment with frankincense could eradicate the cancerous cells alone and let the others live."
The scientific literature on cancer and frankincense is incredibly hopeful. International laboratory research has demonstrated frankincense essential oil's ability to shut down cancer cells
without harming healthy cells. As these things go, the drug industry will take the constituent parts of frankincense and test each one of them for its effectiveness against cancer.
There aren't a lot of natural remedies that have science to back them up. For instance, the coffee enema. Yes, the
coffee enema has been used by hospitals for years and years, but there is no
scientific literature to back it up. Yes, the clinical and anecdotal evidence
is clear: coffee enemas assist thousands and thousands of people to heal.
Yet, in frankincense we have some scientific evidence. Scientists have observed that there is some agent
within frankincense which stops cancer from spreading, and which induces cancerous cells to close themselves down.
You couple this with the ample scientific evidence that exists that the colon is an effective delivery system for therapeutic agents,
you couple this with the fact that of cancers affecting both men and women,
colorectal cancer (cancer of the colon and rectum) is the second leading cancer
killer in the United States and I suggest we have a powerful preventive
essential oil to use in both the enema and the suppository to avoid cancer.

therapeutic agents directly into the colon:

Why You Should Use the Enema, Not Oral Colon Cleansing Products, to Safely Cleanse the Colon
Effective and regular colon cleansing works wonders in the body.
It can improve detoxification processes; encourage optimal levels of healthy bacteria such as bifidus
; discourage the growth of unhealthy bacteria such as c. dificile
and yeast; support the liver to filter viruses, bacteria, and other
poisons; increase bile production, which aids in both detoxification and
digestion; assist the body to heal from cancer; and more. In other
words, using the colon cleanse effectively and regularly "lightens the
load" for the entire body.
How to cleanse the colon
is a controversial subject even though colon cleansing is an excellent
overall support for the body. Historically, the enema was the favored
method to cleanse the colon. A client, who has worked as a nurse for
years, recently recounted her stories of giving enemas in hospitals:
"The doctors called the enema 'the 3H
.' I was told to give patients 'the 3H' all day, every day - high, hot, and heck of a lot!
Now, even in hospitals, most people address this question of how to
colon cleanse by using colon cleanse products such as DrNatura's Colonix
or Walgreen's Super Colon Detox Laxative Capsules.
many people have intolerances, or hypersensivity issues, with various
compounds found in colon cleanse products that put a strain on one or
more of the body's organs and systems.
For instance, many colon
cleanse products contain licorice. Licorice raises blood pressure.
People with high blood pressure should not take licorice. Another colon
cleanse product, senna, contains chemicals called sennosides, which
irritate the lining of the bowel and for some lead to irritable bowel
and leaky gut.
The enema, or in-home colon cleanse, does not lead to these same complications.
Nobody is intolerant to water. Unlike many colon cleanse products, the enema:
- does not harm the nervous system
- does not discolor the colon or cause Melanosis coli
- does not weaken the colonic musculature
- does not cause dependency
- is usually less expensive
- works immediately
- acts therapeutically on the liver, gallbladder, and entire circulatory and detoxification systems
- is historically proven
- is scientifically proven to be the most effective method of delivering therapeutics such as frankincense into the body
- helps the body shed a cold or the flu more quickly
