Ep#25 Colon Hydrotherapy: Self Regulation through Internal Cleansing with Monisha Garner
In this episode of Your Story Medicine, I welcome Monisha “Mo” Garner, Founder of Moya Body Care, which was manifested over 13 years ago as a holistic and organic body care company treating sensitive skin. Over the years, Moya has become stronger and greater, offering the very best in colon hydrotherapy, yoni steaming, Iridology, Reiki, and herbs. Mo inspires you to move towards a healthier mind, body, and spirit and combines Eastern and Western philosophies with ancient healing and spiritual practices. She and Moya offer you an experience of holistic wellness that reconnects with your original source of energy so healing can naturally occur.
Mo speaks to us about the importance of rest, how she holds space for healing, the role of the ego in healing and cleansing, and how she has kept her business thriving during the covid-19 pandemic. She shares beautiful stories of how her clients have found clarity and health through her practice, as well as what she has learned about the body, mind, and spirit along her journey. Cozy up and listen in to this wisdom-filled, awe-some discussion.
What is Iridology?
Iridology is a very simple science of looking at your eye to see if there are any imbalances in any of your 12 organs. Your eye has all of your organs laid out which can be cut into a chart, enabling us to identify and dig deeper into imbalances present in the body. For example, if your liver shows up in your eye, I would ask you simple questions like “Have you been to your doctor lately? If so, what did you go for?” and we would keep discussing your health and your liver. Then, we create a plan of action, start cleansing, and move to the colonic table. It’s a diagnostic tool to help you understand where things are becoming stagnant, not being activated, or if there’s a disease actually forming. Every time I refer someone to visit their general practitioner to follow up on something I have found, they return to me having confirmed that. That’s when we start cleansing! It’s a beautiful system of checks and balances.
What are you celebrating today?
The fact that I’m still here, that people still want me to be here, and that the systems that I’ve put in place to manage my business, my finances, and my clients panned out to be the right systems. During this pandemic, a lot of my colleagues are not in business, but I am still thriving. This whole month is booked out solid. I have not been rejected in my business because this business is a reflection of spirit and I am so humbled and appreciative for that.
What is your ancestral lineage and how has that influenced your medicine today?
The beautiful thing about my family is that I’ve always been the one doing stuff like this. They’re used to me not being mainstream because since I was a child, I was never mainstream. When it comes to rest, I am huge on having a very comfortable, electronic-free bed/bedroom. When my family comes over, that’s the first place they go. My family’s bedrooms have big TVs and electronics everywhere. Self-care is a lifestyle and my family struggles to adopt that. I’m still trying to figure that out. My sister has a hard time putting herself first. My mom is slowing getting rid of clutter in her bedroom and she’s been sleeping better at night, but doesn’t necessarily realize it’s because of the lack of clutter.
My family is still very much of this Western world. If I didn’t have family or wasn’t so close to them, I would be living in Costa Rica or Brazil. The only thing keeping me here in the States is my family.
What are you doing to stay grounded right now and what are you learning to release?
I have learned to release expectations, making up conclusions in my head about certain things, and attachments. That’s been the biggest thing for me, attachments to things. We can only release from a place of stillness. We can’t release and align with Spirit in busyness.
If you could envision yourself as a future ancestor, what would you say to young Monisha?
Trust your inner spirit more. Continue to use coconut oil. Don’t doubt as much as you do. Know that you know. That’s it. That’s enough.
Conclusion: Rest is important. Make time for rest, rejuvenation, and cleansing the mind, body, and spirit. Self-care leads to major healing which impacts every part of your life.
Action Integration: How can you incorporate more moments of rest and trust into your daily life? Whether it be a 20 minute nap, a meditation, a cleaner bedroom and cozier sleep, or a visit with Monisha… take that time for yourself. You deserve it and your body will thank you.
