Since beginning the Unique Healing Program, which I started under the guidance of Donna Pessin, in March of this year, I have had many realizations. Some of these realizations have been quite painful. To explain what and why is not something I am capable of writing about in one or two blog posts, so I am going to share them when I am able.


I remember dating a couple of people who pointed out that the people eating in Health Food Restaurants looked sick. Many of them were. However, at the time those commnets got me upset. I did not want to be lumped in with sick people. I was seeking a healthier way of eating because my gut did not work efficiently, and I did not feel well after eating. I did not look “sick”. Taking a drug to deal with poor digestion and constipation did not, even then, seem right to me.


In the beginning eating a macro based vegetarian diet was my solution. Chewing each mouthful until the food was liquified was another strategy, and not a bad place to start. Colonics soon came with juicing, juice feasting, a raw food diet, Ejuva Colon Cleanse, wheat grass, Rise and Shine Cleanse, parasite cleanses, Gallbladder and Liver Flushes, Viktor Kulvinskas [remember him?] and the list goes on.  When none of that restored my gut I discovered The Body Ecology Diet. Making kefir, sauerkraut and other cultured foods was a part of my life for a few years. My gut did not completely heal. Translation: I was still constipated.

Emotional work, EFT, TAT, traditional therapy was part of my journey all along the way, as well. I often felt that this was all helpful, but other people were way “crazier” than me and their digestion did not seem to suffer. Well, it probably did, but that is a whole other discussion. Anyway, this problem with my gut was greatly physical. Emotional issues beginning at prenatal time and throughout my life contributed to my problems, no doubt. Deep down I knew that the answer was something that needed to be addressed primarily on a biological level.

Doing the Unique Healing Program has driven home to me that diet does not always or ever completely heal illness.  It can help make people feel better, but most who seek a diet that is severe in restrictions are probably consciously or unconsciously aware that some underlying malady is lurking.

If you are someone who has changed their diet for the better, then all the more power to you. If you are someone who has changed their diet and has hit a wall with healing digestive, skin, sleep, dental or other “non life threatening” issues  or some that are, then you need to do something different.

The Unique Healing Program Donna Pessin is something to research and seriously consider. This program has been NO cakewalk for me. Just look at the videos, site and books. Her program is about regaining health through healing the gut.

Visit a nursing home, a few times if necessary, and then ask yourself if  this is how you want to spend your life? It is where many, many people are headed. Either there or a hospital. Sadly, for many, this is an accepted reality. Think about it.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi
