About The Oasis Centre for Colon Therapy

The Oasis Centre for Colon Therapy

Hi there! My name is Samantha. I'm Lessley's daughter. She asked me to write this section as I'm really the reason she got involved in this business. You see, I found colon therapy when my own health was in decline, I couldn’t find any answers, and my doctors were really of no help. I was living in Toronto in 2002 and still quite young at 33 years old and I was exhausted from fatigue, feeling depressed and had terrible anxiety all the time. My doctor told me that I was anemic and that I should take iron supplements. He also prescribed an anti-depressant for me. I followed his direction and started taking iron everyday plus Paxil. My symptoms then went from bad to terrible. My fatigue got so bad that I could hardly walk up a flight of stairs. I had this dizzy, cloudy feeling in my head and I couldn’t concentrate on anything. My anxiety was terrible. I would stand at the door and burst into tears because I couldn’t decide if I should take the dog for a walk or go to the gym. I was also chronically constipated and uncomfortable.

I was walking down Sheppard Ave in Toronto when I noticed a sign for Colon Hydrotherapy. I was curious so I stopped in to see what it was about. There was a European doctor running the clinic who advised me that I most likely had a serious Candida Albicans infection which was contributing to my symptoms. I had never heard of Candida but learned that it was an overgrowth of yeast in the body, a type of parasite that could live anywhere in our bodies but liked to live in a dirty colon. Aahh, things are starting to make sense now. I was constipated all the time therefore there was putrified fecal matter in my colon which was a great breeding ground for Candida and other parasites. Our bodies’ immune systems can become compromised when we take prescription drugs for any length of time i.e birth control pills, antibiotics, etc. and we have a high sugar/refined carbohydrate diet that is low in fiber.

How can this Candida yeast be so problematic? The fungal yeast cells in your body ingest the sugars and carbs you eat and then these same yeast cells eliminate alcohols and expel a large variety of poisons called mycotoxins. One of the major toxins produced from Candida albicans is acetaldehyde, which is transformed by the liver to ethanol (alcohol), creating the feeling of intoxication and brain fog (thus the reason I was feeling so ‘cloudy’ all the time. Candida symptoms can also mimic other health issues i.e. bipolar disorder with the anxiety, irritability, depression, etc. I also learned that Candida thrives in an iron rich environment which is the reason that my symptoms got significantly worse once I stared taking my prescribed iron supplements.

So to make a long story short, I started going for regular colonics to help me eradicate the chronic constipation and to keep my colon clean and healthy. I started taking probiotics and fiber supplements to help with the Candida and to keep me regular. Within a month I was feeling much better. A few years ago I decided that I wanted to try my hand at self-employment but only doing something that I’m passionate about. That’s when the idea for The Oasis Centre for Colon Therapy was born. I promptly took the Colon Therapy program at the Centre for Natural Health and Healing in Toronto.

My mother, Lessley Harford, was a registered nurse for many years and when she decided that she wanted to stay home and care for my 100 year old grandmother in 2006, I suggested that she also become a colon therapist. She was a little resistant at first because this was all new to her but I convinced her to take the Colon Therapy program at the Wood Institute in Florida anyways. She loved it! She realized through taking the program that all disease starts in the colon and that we need to take responsibility for our own health. The Oasis Centre for Colon Therapy is now a thriving home based business in London Ontario with clients coming from all over Southwestern Ontario and as far as Michigan for colonic irrigation treatments.

We would be happy to speak with you further about The Oasis Centre for Colon Therapy and the benefits of colonic irrigation.
