Renewing Life

In with the good, out with the bad. It's simple physiology, but when the digestive system doesn't function properly, optimum health can be elusive.

In with the good, out with the bad. It's simple physiology, but when the digestive system doesn't function properly, optimum health can be elusive.

For Brenda Watson, ND, CT, founder of Renew Life, good digestion is a basic principle of good health. She overcame her own health challenges through cleansing and detoxifying and now says, "I wouldn't be here today if I hadn't chosen the path of digestive health."

As a naturopathic doctor who specializes in colon therapy, Dr. Watson has been educating not only the general public but also the medical community about taking care of the gut. Since the inception of the Renew Life School of Natural Therapies in 1996, Dr. Watson has certified natural medical practitioners and medical doctors from all over the world in colon hydrotherapy and detoxification.

In addition, Dr. Watson shares her knowledge as president of the International Association of Colon Therapists through public speaking, teaching, and researching. This work has also led to the publication of several books on the subject of digestive health, including Renew Your Life and Gut Solutions (Renew Life Press, 2002 and 2004 respectively).

Creating a company to formulate and distribute her own line of digestive care products was a natural next step for Dr. Watson. "There was a definite niche that needed more presence," says Watson.

With an extensive toolkit now in production at the Renew Life laboratories, Dr. Watson and her team provide an array of products to support their message of intestinal good health.

Renew Life specializes in digestive care and cleansing because, as Thomas Bedford, president of Renew Life Canada says, "It is the underlying cause of many different and serious health problems."

"For example," he adds, "many companies sell products to help with the symptoms of chronic conditions. Our approach is that if you work to keep the body clean through cleansing and detoxification, and ensure proper digestion, you can eliminate the root cause of some of these conditions, thereby eliminating the symptoms."

Cleansing and detoxifying have been around for many years, but only recently has the general public started to see their importance. "Our goal is to educate even more Canadians on their health and to take a proactive approach to protecting it," states Bedford.

"It is easier to keep your good health than it is to try and correct poor health. In our view, digestive care and cleansing is the foundation to make this happen."
