Greetings from Tara

Hi, my name is Tara Alder. I am an Internal Cleansing Specialist and Health Educator. I have been practicing the healing art of colon hydrotherapy in Eugene since 2000. I consider what we put in our bodies to be just as important as efficient elimination. I have a passion for alternative healing including nutrition and I find colon therapy to be an exciting profession. I raise two young boys and enjoy mothering them as well as helping with their sports activities. I also enjoy music, art, dancing, nature, gardening, and inspirational adventure like travel, sports, biking, hiking, rock climbing and rafting. Caring for my family and pets brings me many joys as does providing valuable healing resources in our community.

I believe our life styles can support healthy digestion and elimination. Colon hydrotherapy is a gentle internal bath that may help tone, hydrate and cleanse the colon of waste. Colon hydrotherapy is more thorough than an enema, and reaches to the farthest end of the colon. This is accomplished by instilling the colon with filtered, temperature controlled, pressure controlled water several times during a session. We use both a closed system as well as an open system because we know that everybody is different. We appreciate and respect both ways of administering colon hydrotherapy. The choice of instrument is optional and I can help you in determining what is most appropriate for you.

The colon contains the largest concentration of bacteria in the body. Most of this bacteria is beneficial and is necessary to make vitamins B & K. However, waste remaining in the colon longer than it should results in fermentation and putrefaction which may produce harmful bacteria and other toxins that negatively impact the body. The most common indicators of an unhealthy colon are constipation, diarrhea, bloating, foul smelling stools, gas, or bad breath. Cleansing the colon of waste through colon hydrotherapy has the added benefit of hydrating the colon, unlike laxatives which may be irritating, and have a dehydrating and habit forming effect. Colon hydrotherapy may also provide therapeutic improvement in muscular tone by simulating an exercise medium in which the colon's muscular walls expand and contract. A healthy clean colon is essential to a healthy body. Our staff at Alder Brooke Healing Arts provide you with a gentle health-promoting cleanse in a pleasant atmosphere accompanied by our undivided attention!

I very much look forward to working with you!

I always leave my appointments feeling nurtured, healthier and rejuvenated!"
