New Year, New You! Start yours with this Easy Cleanse

colonix Cleansing is a great way to start a new year. Out with the old and in with a fresh clean start. Literally.

With the holidays behind us, it’s the perfect time to cleanse the body of all the rich foods we may have consumed over the last couple months, lose some of that extra weight you may have accumulated and rid the body of toxins and wastes that can keep you from feeling your best or performing at your optimum. If you feel sluggish, experience brain fog, suffer from constipation, struggle with eczema or skin eruptions or have nagging little health issues, and generally want to feel better, cleansing is the first step to regaining good health and feeling better overall.

So where do we begin cleansing? According to Dr. Richard Schulze, the first and most important step for preventing and healing disease is bowel cleansing. You’ve heard it said “death begins in the colon”. Just ask any coroner, as autopsies often reveal colons that are plugged up to 80% with waste material. Colon cancer kills 400% more people than Aids, and actually kills more men and woman than breast cancer or prostate cancer. Medical statistics say that every American will develop some type of colon disease, polyp, tumor or colon cancer in their lifetime. The colon is our primary means of elimination. Without proper elimination, we are subject to these diseases. Many Americans are not eliminating properly due to chronic constipation caused by fiberless diets and unhealthy eating habits. Chronic constipation sets up the perfect environment for parasites to proliferate and disease to take hold. If you are not eliminating two to three times a day, or having a bowel movement after each major meal, then more than likely you are suffering from some form of constipation or sluggish bowel.

How do we cleanse the colon? There are many different colon cleanses and products on the market. The most effective and beneficial colon cleanses are all natural and herbal in nature. Pharmaceutical laxatives can cause permanent damage to the bowels and are ineffective in killing parasites or repairing damage to a sick colon. Herbal colon cleanses along with a healthy diet will clear out old fecal matter, kill parasites, and restore the health and integrity of the colon. Regular colon cleansing can prevent many diseases including cancer.

The colon cleanse I recommend to my patients that I have done myself with great success is a product from Dr Natura, Colonix.  Colonix is the product I would recommend for most people as it is easy to incorporate into busy lifestyles and doesn’t require a special diet or radical lifestyle changes. While I don’t advocate the continuance of unhealthy eating or unhealthy lifestyles, I find that trying to change everything all at once can be too overwhelming. Unless an individual is suffering from a terminal disease, a more gradual approach to cleansing can be more effective as it allows people to make changes over time for lasting results. The Dr Natura colon cleanse is a great place to start for most people. It is all natural and herbal in nature and incredibly effective. It is a three part system that includes herbal anti parasite capsules taken first thing in the morning with a large glass of water, followed by an herbal fiber drink fifteen to twenty minutes later, and an herbal tea taken in the evening after dinner. That’s all there is to it. And you continue with your day as normal, eating what you would normally eat for breakfast lunch and dinner. This cleanse is recommended for one to two months, and three months if you suffer from chronic constipation or have an active disease. After completing the two to three month cleanse, it’s recommended to repeat the cleanse each year for a month.

While the cleanse will be effective regardless of your diet, it will be even more effective if the consumption of meats, dairy, sugar and white flour products, and processed foods are greatly limited. These are the foods that plug up our colon in the first place. You wouldn’t put the incorrect fuel in your car, so why would you put the incorrect “fuel” in your body knowing the systemic damage it can cause? As you proceed with this cleanse you will begin to feel the magnificent benefits of having a cleaner colon. The better you feel the more you will be compelled to incorporate healthier eating habits and let go of unhealthy ones, especially if you wish to continue feeling good.

You can accelerate your cleansing process by combining it with a few acupuncture sessions to boost your metabolism and increase digestion and elimination. Usually just one acupuncture session focused on digestion and elimination will provide you with same day or next day results. If you haven’t jumped into the New Year with better health habits, now is the perfect time to start!

Massage Specials with Dan Klausner 


Dan Klausner is a licensed massage therapist who works with Monica at Scottsdale Acupuncture. Dan has been a licensed therapist for 18 years.


His style of massage appeals to people looking for an enhancement to their fitness program, a way to reduce muscle tension, or just overall relaxation. He specializes in deep tissue and is trained in several techniques. Besides standard Swedish and Sports Massage, Dan specializes in Traditional Thai Massage, which involves deeps stretching and gentle muscle compression. His clients say, “Thai Massage is like having yoga done to you.” Dan also provides Shiatsu, which is less stretching than Thai and works much like acupuncture, using thumb pressure on various points to relieve tension and help energy flow more freely. Both of these modalities are conducted on a futon rather than a table, with the client wearing loose clothing (no oil or lotion is used).


Getting massage therapy regularly increases energy, improves strength and flexibility, reduces injury, and decreases stress.


New client special: Receive $25 off your first 60 or 90 Minute Massage if booked before March 15th.  


Call, text, or email Dan to set up an appointment.
