Jane trained for 10 years with Ruth Sackman, founder of the Foundation for Advancement in Cancer Therapies (FACT). FACT was the first organization that disseminated information about non-toxic and biological treatments of cancer. Ruth’s efforts saved thousands of lives by educating people about the true nature of cancer—the understanding that it is not a local disorder, but rather a systemic disease, and that correction of the disturbance must take place for the whole body/mind/spirit constellation.
From Ruth, Jane learned the vital importance of detoxification in restoring biochemical integrity to the body, and this principle has been an essential component of the therapies that both La Casas have offered for over 30 years.
Included in each of the world’s traditions of health and rejuvenation are methods of cleansing. For all ancient healing traditions, cleansing body and mind is the sine qua non of a healthy as well as a spiritual existence.
In studying ancient cultures, Jane came to understand that all cultures have rituals for detoxification. These beliefs—abstinence, cleansing and rest—are not frivolous, antediluvian notions. Rather, they are based on sound understandings of the nature of health. Toxins inhibit the body from its natural ability to repair itself. Ancient peoples understood that without setting aside specific times for periodic purification, vitality and regeneration were not possible. This notion is the essence of detoxification.
Today, however, most of us, rather than being interested in the process of elimination, rather than understanding when and what to not eat, we seem to be exclusively preoccupied with what we do eat (and how it tastes). Western dietary habits uniquely ignore the body’s need to rid itself of its waste products.
Thus, La Casa offers various methods of detoxification, including:
- Oxygen therapy (EWOT)
- Ozone sauna
- Whole body vibration
- Juice fasting
- Trampoline jumping
- Lymphatic cleansing
- Mud wraps
- Low-level radiation stones
- Ayurvedic oils
- and more—all to cleanse and purify the body.
Some of our detoxification therapies:
Oxygen Therapy (EWOT)
The New England Journal of Medicine concluded the biggest difference between a 25-year-old and a 70-year-old is the 25-year-old is better able to utilize oxygen.
In 1931, Otto Warburg won a Nobel Prize for his discovery that a key pre-condition for the development of cancer is lack of oxygen at a cellular level.
Renowned molecular biologist and geneticist, Stephen Levine, has concluded that the lack of oxygen in human cells and tissues is the underlying root cause of not just cancer, but of all chronic degenerative disease.
EWOT (pronounced ee-watt) stands for Exercise with Oxygen Therapy. This method of prolonging life is so simple that it’s hard to believe it could work, but it does. Exercising, while breathing oxygen, dramatically increases the amount of oxygen in the blood plasma, i.e., the portion of the blood outside the red and white cells.
For the exercise part of this therapy, guests have the choice of a vigorous workout on either a treadmill or stationary bike. In addition, for a less vigorous exercise, Whole Body Vibration is available. This is such a gentle movement that it won’t actually feel like exercise. But, in fact, it is moving all tissues and organs on a deep level (and, after all, what is exercise other than movement?). As you stand on the WBV platform, you will feel the movement of your body all the way from your feet to your head. Whichever exercise is selected, you will be breathing in oxygen, giving your body a super-charge like none else.
Oxygen likes to travel in pairs—O2. But when a third molecule binds, it becomes O3, and oxygen’s traditional properties suddenly become more powerful, more activated, more energized. Because O3 is molecularly unstable, it wants to give away that extra atom. Any cell that comes into contact with O3 will accept (or steal) the gift of the third atom. As a cell takes in more oxygen, it is able to produce more energy and work more efficiently.
In our Super-Enriched Oxygen Bath, you relax in a steam cabinet while the pores in your body absorb this vital, activated oxygen. This oxygen therapy is a detoxification par excellence. O3 kills bacteria, viruses, yeast, fungi, parasites, and all other pathogenic entities. Whenever O3 comes into contact with microorganisms, it kills them.
Dr. Robert Jay Rowen calls O3 a “miracle healer.” As well as detoxifying, O3 also increases circulation and regulates metabolism. It is a powerful stimulant of cellular growth factors. Immune cells are particularly responsive to O3. All bodily processes are improved. O3 has been shown to be effective in a myriad of disease states, including liver disease, cancer, pain management, allergies, hepatitis, diabetes, and Lyme Disease. It works on so many afflictions because it operates at the foundational level of the body: the cell.
With O3, you’ve got a crackerjack construction crew rushing over to your cells and repairing them at lightning speed!
Benefits of ozone sauna:
- inactivates bacteria, viruses, yeast, parasites, protozoa & fungi
- enhances circulation
- increases production of collagen and cartilage.
- purifies blood & lymphatic system
- stimulates oxygen metabolism
- disrupts malignant tumor metabolism
- reduces inflammation & pain
- excretes heavy metals
- normalizes hormone & enzyme production
- improves brain function
- best free radical scavenger that exists
- relaxes muscles by reducing buildup of lactic acid & increasing muscle flexibility
- oxidizes toxins so they can be eliminated through skin, lungs, kidneys & colon
- stimulates vasodilatation of peripheral blood vessels accelerating healing
- speeds up metabolic processes of inner organs & endocrine glands resulting in a loss of 200-450 calories in a 20-minute session
- reduces clumping of red blood cells, thus reducing viscosity of blood that leads to build-up of arterial plague
- changes the worse free radical in the body – carbon monoxide Co- into Co2
Facts about the colon:
- Waste is produced for everything that goes into the body except distilled water—3 meals in, 3 meals out.
- Colon health is an on-going process, and reversal of an unhealthy colon takes time (sometimes years).
- A healthy colon empties every 6-8 hours.
Many holistic practitioners believe that health begins with a well-cared for colon. The precise functioning of the body’s organs of detoxification explains why: every four minutes the blood cycles through the portal vein from the colon to the liver and back again. If the colon is toxic, through the connecting pathway of the portal vein, the liver becomes overloaded. The liver, then, can’t do its main function, which is to detoxify the whole body. The colon and liver are the 1-2 detoxification punch for the body. La Casa (PR) offers colonics that are unique in the world (developed by Jane over the 50 years that she has been involved in holistic health), and are targeted for specific results. These include the: Classic Colonic; Intensive Colonic; Heat/Flow Colonic; pH Colonic; Purification Colonic; Infinity Colonic; Raindrop Colonic.
Whole Body Vibration
WBV was used originally by the Russian space program to help astronauts counteract the effects of zero gravity from being in space. Ten minutes of WBV exercising is worth over 1 hour of other forms of strenuous exercise. Because of the supreme effectiveness of this simple exercise, WBV is now used by major medical, rehabilitation & therapeutic centers across the country.
