LifeCleanse of Anoka was started in February of 2008 by Barb Abeler because
she saw a need for a colon hydrotherapy clinic in the northern suburbs.
Barb has previous training and experience in mainstream medicine as an RN, but has seen and experienced the tremendous potential in the world of alternative medicine. She also earned a B.A. Degree in Education and the combination fuels the love of health issues with the enthusiasm of teaching. Barb has a passion for helping people get and stay well through education and cleansing and feels fortunate to be of service in this capacity.
She was trained at the Tiller Mind/Body Institute in San Antonio, Texas
and is Level III certified as a Colon Hydrotherapist through
I-ACT, and is National Board Certified.
Barb is married to Jim, a chiropractor,
and is in the joyful process of raising the last two of six
Renee decided to become a Certified
Colon Hydrotherapist after experiencing a significant improvement in
her own health through colon hydrotherapy. She has completed training
on the LIBBE device and is certified through I-ACT.
Renee's background includes a B.S. Degree in Animal Science and Biology.
She then attended the John Bastyr College of Naturopathic Medicine in Seattle.
She was the office manager for a naturopathic clinic, which incorporated
colon hydrotherapy, along with massage, chiropractic, and nutritional therapies.
Renee is married to Gene, has been blessed with 4 children, and has had
the privilege of fostering 21 children. Renee's hope is that she can help
others discover the many healing benefits of colon hydrotherapy, along with
the other inner cleansing modalities available at LifeCleanse.
Karen has spent the last 20 years, together with her family, living and learning ways to heal, using many alternative therapies. Originally from Minnesota, she is returning after 30 years, having spent the last 10 years on a small farm in central Illinois raising and growing organic meat and produce.
She is finishing up a 20 year career as a stay at home mom, homeschooling her 2 children, who are now starting college. Her first introduction to colon cleansing came when her husband was diagnosed with cancer several years ago. She believes keeping the colon healthy is necessary to heal, leading her to LifeCleanse of Anoka and pursuing training as an I-ACT Certified Colon Hydrotherapist and the LIBBE device training in San Antonio, TX.
She has a strong desire to connect with people and support them in their journey to health.
