Marijke Vogel has been working in Holistic therapies for over 35 years and is now one of the most popular therapists in her field. Her speciality is in colon cleansing, following the naturopathic teachings of Dr Bernard Jensen. Marijke began her studies and practice in 1982 to try to find an answer to her own health problems, which had beset her from childhood.
She went on to study naturopathy, iridology, nutrition, herbal medicine and colon hydrotherapy. As well as Dr Jensen, her teachers have included Farida Sharan, Angela and Peter Bradbury, Herman Aihara and Micho Kushi. Through the teachings of Dr Jensen, Marijke became convinced that colon health is the most important requirement in all aspects of healing, so she now works mostly on colon cleansing and specific enemas, detoxification, herbal medicine and nutrition. She travels extensively to learn from different cultures and to implement new ideas and techniques in her work.
Her book “The Earth on which we Live,” published in 2001, describes the many ways we can achieve good health, including through the healing power of clay. Marijke’s naturopathic colon hydrotherapy work has gained much popularity in the last 15 years. Her approach is highly individual, seeing her work as a healing art-form. Her aim is to put people at ease, telling them amusing stories to support her treatment and diagnosing what supplements their bodies may need to improve. This also covers diet and lifestyle and may include a recommendation for treatment from other professionals.
