How those little "plucks" could make such a big difference is amazing to me. Bowmann's Bowen is such a gentle treatment with phenomenal results. I've only had three treatments. Not only has my neck, shoulder, arm and hand pain practically disappeared (80%) but my leg cramps are gone too; and I didn't even tell you about that.Whatever your doing, keep doing it! I'm looking forward to being a "new woman" as you pluck away the stress and "unravel" me. Thanks, — CS

Medicine only considers 'it' constipation if one doesn’t eliminate at least every three days. It’s interesting to note that one can be told, 'It’s normal for you' when you eliminate twice a week, and then follow a natural program and begin having daily elimination and be told, 'It's normal for you.' What's normal? Maybe your normal is every 3 days, but is it healthy? I don’t think so. Nor is it comfortable. While our dogs and other mammals poop daily, shouldn’t we.
When one eliminates daily or twice daily, there is more energy and vitality and less of a feeling of bloat and lethargy. While gas can have many contributing factors, it is also part of constipation, as is bloat and being tired. Food that takes more than 24 hours to go from eating to elimination is in the gastro-intestinal tract too long.
Last week I received a call from a client whose mother is 97 years old, having suffered with life long constipation. We had discussed my program and her mom started the simple things to help her bowels move more regularly. 6 weeks later I received a phone call and her mom’s words were shared,
“I haven’t had a normal bowel movement in so long, I’m in shock. Dr Victoria’s program works.”
My next case is about a 6 year old boy who had hard stools and would cry because he didn’t want to use the toilet, “It hurts.” The mother observed the child for a few days and reported on the specifics of his situation: he only wanted to use the toilet at his home; he wouldn’t go at school or anyone’s home. Even though he is a twin, his brother and a younger brother have easy daily elimination. We discussed an appropriate program for him and within two days he is eliminating – easily and daily. He is now almost 9 years old.
There are many things that can contribute to constipation: not drinking enough water or eating enough fiber. Those seem to be common suggestions that have helped a few but not most.
However, the solution isn’t that simple. Think of it like a puzzle and we need to fit in all the pieces. There are guidelines, however with anything one must then individualize the program.
When one looks at the numerous (hundreds) of products, how does one know what to choose? So we try something, maybe it works for a while and then becomes ineffective. Or it causes cramping and discomfort. Do you know why? Or does one just stop that product and try something else. It’s almost like “constipation roulette”
Perhaps a different way to approach this problem is to learn about the natural alternatives available, become an educated consumer, and then select the solution most likely to help you and your individual situation. The kinds of questions one needs to ask themselves might be: Do I get leg cramps or am I restless at night in bed? Do I feel like I need to have a bowel movement but nothing happens? Do my guts feel like they’re asleep? Does stress cause me to just not be able to go? What do my stools look like: Are they hard and lumpy or more like marbles or pellets? What have I tried and how was it supposed to work? What kind of medicine am I taking and what are the side effects? Does my elimination change during my menstrual cycle?
Certainly, there are guidelines that apply to everyone, however, age matters. A gentle approach is best for babies, children, and the elderly. Someone that is sensitive to chemicals or has been somewhat fragile much of their life would go slowly in any program. While those that are robust, fit and strong could handle a more rapid pace to their program. The basis is to know what to do and why, and then go at a speed that allows for success without discomfort.
You Gotta Have GUTS was written with the consumer in mind. Learn a tried and true method for relief and often resolution of these problems. More than 30 years of clinical experience and research supports a natural solution to severe constipation, as well as many other bowel complaints, like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). There is help available just by reaching out for knowledge. One can learn the contributing reasons for the difficulty and possible solutions with great rewards.
Comfort. Energy. A sense of Well Being.

Hi Victoria, I was at your office for a Bowmann's Bowen treatment two days ago. You asked me for some feedback. It's been two days now and I have to say that I'm amazed! My pain is 90% better and just a twinge remains in my shoulder. The deep pain that has been in the middle of my back by my left shoulder blade is gone. It was there for so long. I am so grateful. This evening, I will see the friend that referred me to you and tell her how thankful I am for the referral.
Thank you so much!
Have a blessed day,
