I am a 24-year-old resident of Sparks, Nevada. Ever since I could
remember, I've always had a problem with constipation and bloating.
My mother had mentioned to me that I've had troubles with it since
I was a little girl. Before I went to see Nadine, I was bloated
and constipated 24/7. I would take the over-the-counter laxatives
and anti-gas supplements, but they didn't seem to fix the problem
I definitely noticed my bloated stomach when I was training for
my first marathon in 2007. I trained for five months, and I could
see myself getting thinner, but my belly was staying the same. I
didn't get it. I thought I just had a lot of belly fat. I tried
to fix the problem with working out more and doing extra sit-ups
— but it still stayed the same!
In February 2008 I went to Serenity’s for a consultation with
Nadine. I'll admit it, I was nervous! I had never done colonic therapy
before, but I had always been interested. After sitting with Nadine
and talking to her about my problems with bloating and constipation,
I wanted to have my first session as soon as possible!
I have had a total of nine open gravity colonics from Nadine. My
results were no more bloating! I now have a bowel movement one or
more times a day, which is a drastic change from moving once every
two to three days, I've lost a total of two inches off my waist,
one inch off my ribs and six pounds overall. The cool thing about
it is that I kept it all off.
Since seeing Nadine, I've recommended my mother to have a colonic.
She is a survivor of thyroid cancer, and I knew this would be a
great thing to do in order to get more of those yucky toxins out
of her body. She has had a total of 10 sessions, and she released
parasites during her first couple colonics. She, too, was amazed
with the results.
I would encourage everyone to try colonic therapy. It sure has made
a positive change for me and my mother.
I met Nadine when we both went to a school
for closed pressure colonics at the same time. But after school
we went different ways. Nadine decided to try open gravity colonic
system, and she was very successful with that. She got tremendous
results. She was amazed at what came out of her and her clients.
I started my own business in 2004. In the beginning I was very successful,
but after a while people became less and less interested in the
colon cleanse. I decided to come see Nadine and try the system that
she is using. I did not know what to expect, because I was sure
I was pretty clean inside. I was shocked from the results. I delivered
old, old stuff. The next day I felt like a newborn person.
I feel like I have wasted three years in my business and bought
a machine that is useless. I am highly recommending to everybody
who wants to be healthy to come and see Nadine and do the colon
cleanse. By using Nadine’s system my body has changed, and
I had been doing closed pressure colonics for three years in my
business. I don’t have words to express just the amazing difference
of doing colonics with Nadine and the open gravity system, compared
to the system both of us were first trained on.
I went to Serenity’s for a seven-day cleanse,
which I was not sure if I would fast or stay soft since I did not
feel I would be able to do the fast for seven days.
Prior to coming to Nadine I would have thought this was not much
more than an enema.
The first day of the fast was the toughest, not so much of not being
able to eat but more of the habit of eating. The second day became
routine, and I did not think at all of eating. I felt good the second
day, but the third day is when my energy level increased noticeably.
Every day after that my energy level rose even though I was not
eating, which surprised me. I was not hungry.
I was a smoker for 30 years and quit smoking four years ago. For
the last four years approximately three to six times daily since
quitting I would have a flashback and crave a cigarette. This would
last approximately three seconds a few times a day, and then I would
put the thought out of my head. But since doing the cleanse I have
not had a craving or a desire for a cigarette at all. In fact I
have been off the cleanse for two days, and when one of my guys
lit up a cigarette in the truck it nauseated me.
Before I would have not cared and had no negative effects from the
smoke. It made me feel that the nicotine addiction and desire is
finally gone. Since the cleanse I have politely requested him to
no longer smoke in my truck, which he has complied with.
I also stopped a day after the cleanse at a Taco Bell and ordered
just beans and rice, thinking it was better than a hamburger. I
was surprised that this little bit of fast food knotted or unsettled
my stomach, and I thought I was going to throw up. Yet the day before,
right after my cleanse, I ate a natural beef and organic taco with
an organic field green salad that Nadine prepared and had no problem
right before I caught the plane home and noticed my stomach was
full quicker and my tummy felt good — like a warm hug —
no problem with my stomach. So I feel that my stomach cannot tolerate
chemicals or additives since the cleanse. Today I did not eat any
fast food, and the food I did eat had no negative effects on my
stomach. I also realized I seem to need less food, and what I do
eat I am satiated quicker.
I feel this is because I have better absorption. I am not sure of
the weight loss but on the seventh day my belt notch had decreased
by three notches. It was nice to see inches lost around my stomach.
It is not why I did the cleanse, but it was a nice bonus!
Also, my blood pressure has been running borderline high. Today
I had my blood pressure checked and it has dropped. Normal for me
is 139/86 and today it was 129/80. I have not been on blood pressure
medicine for close to two years, and it dropped it to where I was
on my medicine.
I had respiratory polio when I was 4 years old and had pneumonia
14 years ago which Nadine felt that I was already backed up in my
system with mucous. I could not believe how much was coming out
of me especially after 6 days without food and that is when it started
making sense and I understood what she had been saying all along.
I was also amazed of the amount of mucous released…nothing
new….just lots of old stuff …. which also explained
the respiratory issues I have had in the past and still had issues
with some till I started the cleanse. What I was dealing with regarding
my respiratory system before the cleanse was tightness … almost
felt like a lung infection…I don’t know if that was
what it was or what it was working up to but it feels like it is
gone. I also feel like I breathe deeper and my breathing less labor
and my sinuses seem to have cleared up.
Another physical ailment I struggle with is my knees. The left knee
I had an arthroscopic surgery for a tear in medial meniscus. That
outpatient surgery was done 3 years ago. In my profession I walk
an average 6 or 7 miles a day and the knee would get inflamed. Since
the cleanse almost no inflammation, feels stronger, went hiking
in Tahoe when I was on the cleanse and the only ill effect was the
altitude where it would have burned especially climbing which I
did. I have been back to work for 2 days since the cleanse and my
knees are great. I am taking longer strides and there is no need
for the ice pack at the end of the day.
I am not sure I want to go to the next benefit if I can call it
that. Nadine had talked to me about an emotional cleanse that some
people experience. Especially the emotional release I could not
figure out how that could have been tied to the colon. That just
sounded like a girly thing cuz they are just so emotional. Girls
can cry over the most mundane thing and my brother died 2 years
ago and I did not shed a tear. Only way I could describe it was
an inner “awakening” and it completely caught me off
guard. The morning of the 5th day I was talking with Nadine over
some non-emotional events and immediately started tearing up. Keep
in mind the only tears I remember ever shedding was 15 years ago
at the funeral of my Dad that I loved dearly and had a very close
relationship. It was not always verbal but always known. After the
education I received from Nadine and Dr. Bernard Jensen the colon
to me is like the root of the tree and if the root is stuck in filth.
The tree dies because it cannot find the nourishment through all
the toxins. Which affects the “WHOLE” tree and to me
that is like the human body when it is filled with toxins. The toxic
human being, which is most of us, gradually over time gets so toxic
that it affect our emotional, physical, and spiritual being that
we don’t realize we are running on 2 cylinders instead of
On my last night of the cleanse I did a liver and gall bladder cleanse.
And I experienced more emotional release and I am not sure how to
describe it. Nadine had told me that the liver stores anger. I was
not feeling anger but extreme compassion. It was a peaceful day
spent in nature in Tahoe and Genoa. Since this cleanse I have been
a lot more open to speak about my emotions with emotions. Before
I was very quiet and had a difficult time expressing myself especially
about emotional issues if I even talked about it which I realize
recently had to be changed. One of two of my preadolescent sons
was picking up my bad habit of emotional shutdown. Now that I am
back home I have improved my communication. I am open to my boys
about sharing my emotions and they in return are opening up more
to me and sharing their feelings. Even with my 26 year old son who
is on his own which I have always been close with and professionally
works with me.
One last thing with the liver and gall bladder cleanse was all the
“pebbles” that released some of them as big as marbles.
I was shocked they were inside of me. The blemishes on my face that
Nadine told me were liver spots from a very toxic liver a couple
I have noticed are diminishing in color. Nadine had told me once
my liver had room that the toxins would be pulled from my skin and
brought back to my liver. I have realized I have just began cleansing
my body and have a long way to go still. After 30 years of abusing
my body I have gone today to organic stores in Phoenix and began
making the change to whole food like grains and grass fed beef and
free range chicken. As Nadine would say “I GOT IT!”.
There is no way I would have believed the benefits that this cleanse
has brought not only to me but my boys. To sum it up it is so simple
and just makes common sense. Anyone who invest in Nadine’s
cleanse or colonics the long term benefits would exceed any sacrifice
made in doing the cleanse. It is investment for the future. I feel
it will eliminate a lot of medical cost that will probably never
happen if a person takes action in prevention. So this is a case
of being proactive in your health and not waiting for crisis to
happen if toxins are left to build up to continue poisoning the
body. This is my strong belief and feeling after seeing what I released
and the well being I felt afterwards.
Ron W. Timmerman
have been dealing with heath issues for many years. Including not
having a bowel movement for 1 to 2 months at a time. I was gaining
weight like crazy. (Even while I was working out six days a week
and eating really healthy). I have been to many medical doctors
trying to figure out what was wrong with me. After years of test
and having them take out my gallbladder they finally told me it
was in my head and prescribed approximately half a dozen prescriptions
including valium and antidepressants. I did not see how it was going
to help my bowels move so I never filled any of the medication.
So I kept on researching things on my own, and I found a natural
clinic that diagnosed me with Lyme disease. During my treatments
with them quite a few of their patients told me about a colonic
place called Serenity’s. I was a little bit nervous to try
colonics because I had done approximately 20 sessions on a closed
pressure colonic in Salt Lake City, Utah before with very little
results. But because the clinic's patients spoke so highly of Serenity‘s
I decided to try it again. When I arrived there I found out it was
a open gravity colonic (which I have never even heard of before).
I was amazed at my results after just three days on colonics I went
to the bathroom sixteen times on my own, and I released probably
a dozen Strictures which has been linked with cancer. I was also
amazed at the mucoloid plaque that came out with strong colon wall
indentations. I had never seen anything like what came out of me
before and wondered just how much absorption of nutrients I had
even absorb. I am sure I was lead to Nadine for a reason and I believe
she has saved my life. Thanks Nadine.
Amber, 25 years old
believe that all individuals can and will benefit from colonic therapy.
My journey began in October 2006, shortly after my engagement party
and celebrating my 30th birthday, I discovered a lump in my left
breast. Although, breast cancer or cancer for that matter doesn't
run in my family I decided to get the lump checked out. On Friday
Dec 15, 2006, my primary care physician informed me that I had an
aggressive form of breast cancer and would have to begin chemotherapy
immediately. To say the least, I couldn't comprehend the words that
were being spoken to me. Like many individuals diagnosed with cancer
you ask, how and why is this happening to me? My personal journey
included chemotherapy, a partial mastectomy with lymph node removal
and twenty-five rounds of radiation.
After my aggressive and intense treatments were complete, I felt
very strongly that my body needed to be detoxified and cleansed.
I began to research colonic therapy and became very aware of how
important a well functioning bowel system was to overall health.
As I began to think back over my life, I realized that my bowel
movements were never very regular. Previously, I thought regularity
was a nuisance and having bowel movements every few days was a good
thing. I soon realized I was very wrong and how having a weak and
sluggish bowel could affect my overall health.
I learned about Serenity’s Colonic Cleansing from a friend
who had experienced several sessions with Nadine and spoke very
highly of the open-system practiced at Serenity’s and how
your modesty was protected throughout the treatment.
During my time at Serenity’s I was amazed at what past through
me, definitely not anything I had ever seen before. My results also
included renewed energy and mental clarity. Since my first colonic
was the day after my last radiation treatment, I was also pleased
to watch how quickly my radiation burns seemed to heal.
Although my personal journey included conventional treatment, I
believe colonic therapy has aided in eliminating toxins in my body
while ultimately retraining my system to eliminate properly.
I will be incorporating colonic therapy and I pray that more individuals
realize that this “taboo” topic is natural and a vital
means to overall health.
want to share with you how colonic therapy made so many positive
changes in my health. I am a Type 1 Diabetic so a strict diet and
excercise are a must for me. Additionally, I had been struggling
with a thigh/groin injury, ongoing yeast infections, and a severe
I work with a personal trainer weekly and I mentioned to her how
bad I was feeling and some of my symptoms. She recommended I call
Nadine at Serenity's. I had no knowledge about colonics but she
explained to me how she thought it would help me. I told her I would
check into it. A few more weeks past, and I was feeling worse! I
decided to go in and have an open/gravity colonic with Nadine. After
my colonic with Nadine I realized that doing this cleanse would
really help my bowel trouble, but what I didn't realize is the other
amazing results that followed too!
The colonics were very private, and I was made to feel very comfortable
throughout my colonics. This was my first experience with colonic
therapy and I was amazed at what came out!! I have to mention that
I was shocked at the huge parasite nest that came out along with
a lot of other elimination.
I could not believe how much better I felt right away! My bowels
were better after a couple of colonics, I could release my thigh/groin
injury for the first time in months, I have been yeast infection
free since my colonics and the most amazing was my sugar levels
dropped to the point I had to call my diabetes doctor and ask to
decrease my insulin! I had no idea how much colonic therapy could
help my health, but I know now that colonic therapy and eliminating
toxins from my body is the key to me feeling better!
Reviglio told me to go to Serenity’s for Colonic Therapy.
He had done both closed-pressure and open-gravity colonics. Jack
felt the open gravity system was far more superior and told me the
only place to go was to Serenity‘s. I was a little skeptical
that this would benefit me and the incredible pain I was suffering.
I was on a Fentanyl Patch and taking Dilaudid 2 to 3 times daily
just to control pain. Both are very powerful narcotic pain killers.
Approximately 2 months later my brother in law was very insistent
that I go. The following day I called Nadine and on June 1st, 2007
this is where my healing began. After my first colonic I started
crying I could not believe the pressure that it took off my back.
Since then I have gone from seven medications to just one. I have
so much more energy then I ever had!
An overview of my medical history. It was October of 2001 and I
began to have terrible leg shaking on my right leg then I had a
Grand Mal Seizure, I was taken to the emergency room by ambulance.
After an MRI I was told I had a huge “mass” in my brain
and at the end of my spine. Not knowing what it is I was told I
needed to have Brain Surgery. I had a brain surgery in February
of 2002, after that my whole life went downhill, I was having seizures,
horrible migraines and leg pain that put me through the roof. My
white cell blood count was always really high and my red blood count
really low. I have been on as many as 15 medications and have had
at least 20 to 25 medications prescribed. Some stopped migraines
and seizures but the side effects were horrible. I was depressed
, horrible anxiety, constipation, horrible muscle pain, my gums
were falling apart and my teeth were ruined and 11 teeth had to
be pulled. Also my hair was falling out and after brain surgery
my hair went gray were they took off my scalp. My colonoscopy report
came back 75% blockage and if the medication didn’t work then
surgery on the removal of some part of my colon would be the next
avenue the GI Doctor wanted to take. I am only 32 and this started
when I was 24.
Before colonic therapy I had gone to UC Davis to visit a Neuroscientist,
to a Pain Management Clinic, I had seen an Acupuncturist, a homeopathic
doctor and four other M.D. Specialist. Some of the places that I
went did help me to feel better but I had so many side effects and
everything I did seem to last for a short while, until I did Colonic
Therapy. Since I have been doing colonics I do not have side effects
and so much of my pain is gone permanently! I cannot recommend ANYTHING
more than colonic therapy.
How Serenity’s Colonic Therapy has benefited me:
My white blood cell count is now normal and my red blood cell count
has gone up significantly to just a little anemic.
My pain has been cut in half
I have lost over 25 pounds without dieting
I do not have the sugar cravings that I had before
I have energy again! Approx. 80% more. I finally feel like I am
in my 30’s again instead of a decrepit 90 year old lady.
My migraines are gone
No more seizures
The shaking in my leg is controlled
I feel like I have better clarity
I would have a bowel movement 1 to 2 times a month. I am now up
to once to twice a day with the Colonic Therapy and still improving.
My hair has stopped falling out by the handfuls.
Before colonics I was getting sick at least once a week (ie…viruses,
cold infections, flu‘s), since coming to Nadine I have not
been getting sick
One of the most touching moments was when my brother in law asked
my husband at his birthday party how he felt about the Colonic Therapy.
My husband replied with tears in his eyes, “I have my wife
colonics journey began in October of 2006 as a last resort of attaining
restored health after years of visiting endless doctors who kept
telling me I was fine. Well I felt terrible and I knew I wasn’t
fine. My list of complaints was endless, the biggest being debilitating
fatigue, chronic bladder infections, and constipation. I was originally
directed to Nadine Marchuck by a Nurse Practitioner whom I had been
seeing for a couple of years. She suggested that perhaps trying
colonics might be a good next step, but she also strongly suggested
that if I were going to go that route that I only go to Nadine.
From the first session I began to feel a sense of relief, and as
time passed I began to combine as many colonics in a row as I could;
usually a week of colonics every other month. During that week I
“overdose” on the drinks and follow a strict fasting
rule for maximum results. Each session brings me to a higher level
of being. At one point I even made an appointment for a “regular”
colonic to make a comparison. As I had never done a colonic before,
I had no information from which to judge which would be more effective.
After one closed pressure colonic it is my opinion that it was waste
of time and money with literally no positive results. The process
was invasive and embarrassing, and to top it off it was more expensive!
I have learned that if you clean your body on the inside, it will
take care of itself. During the last year I have observed the following
Energy levels have sky-rocketed
My hunger is satisfied more quickly, so I am eating less.
I have lost over 20 lbs. without dieting.
My stomach has flattened and I have hip bones again.
Not even a cold in the last 13 months.
Skin smoother, face clearer, and an eczema I’ve had since
I was 15 is completely gone.
My cholesterol levels have dropped dramatically without drugs.
Age spots on my arms and legs diminishing.
Insomnia is gone – sleeping soundly again.
Bladder problems are gone – no more running to the bathroom
All aches and pains have vanished
My thought processes are clearer and memory has improved
There are many other benefits I have derived from this wonderful,
easy process; and I would be happy to share those with anyone. My
body has gone back in time about 30 years, and I am so thankful
that I found Nadine and Serenity’s which has elevated my quality
of life to a whole new level. With the toxins in the air and all
of the processed foods we ingest, this is an easy and inexpensive
way to help keep you healthy.
