Vanessa Drew on The Power of Detoxification

For the past 10 years, Vanessa Drew has been helping people improve their quality of life through detoxification. She turned to holistic natural medicine after conventional methods failed to help her with her digestive issues. She had a misdiagnosed ruptured appendix and almost died. After exploring many different options, Vanessa discovered colon hydrotherapy, a gentle internal bath that aids the body in the detoxification process.

Hydrotherapy helped her to heal and she opened her first Cleansing Concepts location soon after. Celebrating their 10 year anniversary this month, Vanessa now has three locations across Long Island and New Jersey where she helps others rebuild their health and well-being through colon cleansing, ion therapy, infrared sauna therapy and living clay therapy. Vanessa resides in Red Bank, NJ with her family and is a certified Colon Hygienist and Licensed Esthetician.

Why do we need to detox?

There are significantly high levels of toxins in the world today, including air pollution, food preservatives, carcinogens, medication overload, cleaning products and even chemicals in the water we drink. Added up through time, these toxins can cause major health problems, lack of energy, irritability, craving for sugar, skin irritations, bags under the eyes and lack of general well being! It is more important than ever that we educate ourselves on how to prevent health risks and how to naturally treat what ails us. If you’ve been feeling exhausted lately, have skin problems, body aches and pains, digestive issues or trouble gaining or losing weight, it may be time for a body detox.

Which service would you recommend first and why?

We offer many services but I always recommend Colon Hydrotherapy first. Like Bernard Jenson said, “death begins in the colon.” 90% of your immunity system lives in your colon, so it’s important to keep it clean! I know it’s a taboo subject, but a healthy colon can change your life! I’ve learned that you can truly experience life-changing results that far supersede the temporary affects of laxative teas or over the counter detox programs.

What makes Cleansing Concepts different than other cleansing facilities?

We offer a self-administered private cleansing experience. Your colon hydrotherapy experience is completely private and safe. No need to feel embarrassed or ashamed. You will walk out of our offices feeling lighter and healthier. We also keep our pricing affordable so our clients can consistently make detoxing a part of their lifestyle. With all the toxins our bodies are constantly being bombarded with, we understand the need for detoxification! Cleansing Concepts works closely with naturopathic doctors, Lyme disease specialists, chiropractors and even some gastroenterologists to provide the services their clients desperately need to achieve health!

How can I live a toxic-free life?

Living a perfect life free of toxins is just impossible. People are over medicated, the food is genetically modified, the water we drink and shower in is toxic and the chemicals in household products are killing us. However, you can life a balanced life with detoxification with our many safe services including BELD lymphatic drainage, infrared sauna therapy, ionic foot baths, and of course colon hydrotherapy. “The future of your health begins here” has been our motto for 10 years now and it’s becoming more true everyday!
