Very Special Alternatives was established 25 years ago to provide skilled nursing services to local naturopathic and holistic physicians. After nearly a decade in “conventional” or “traditional” allopathic medicine, Vonnie Schultz Albrecht, RN turned her attention to alternative and integrative medicine in 1993. Her eclectic experience as a registered nurse in emergency, critical care, flight and office settings provided fertile ground for opening her mind to a whole-being approach for any aspect of health or well-being.
During her training as a chelation nurse, Albrecht soon understood that true “traditional” medicine was based in the broad, eclectic and ancient practices preserved through generations by many cultures and civilizations. As she watched patients’ lives improve in spite of difficult or poor prognoses, she developed a firm belief that every person deserves the opportunity to know about and choose from the many avenues and philosophies. She enjoys a patient-centered approach and embraces collaboration with other healthcare providers to meet individuals’ needs.
With more than 35 years in healthcare, Albrecht’s nursing skill provides a special touch when administering intravenous infusions or ozone therapies. She believes that an informed patient or client stays involved and responsible for their own well-being when their healthcare providers educate them and involve them directly. To this end, she has recently expanded her practice to provide individual education for those who wish to continue ozone therapy at home.
Albrecht’s approach to colon hydrotherapy begins with a warm, relaxing space to create a safe, reassuring environment for first-time clients or those who have been unhappy with sterile, clinical settings. After a thorough review of health history and goals, a plan is determined, and the process itself is explained in detail. Questions and concerns are addressed with care and patience, not only at the initial visit, but also before and after every return visit.
With her Slow Flow method for colon irrigation, Albrecht uses only a gentle flow of purified water into the large intestine and minimizes the use of pressure to cleanse the buildup of waste and restore natural function. She has developed a unique integrated system by combining a full gravity water source with a FDA-approved colonic instrument. Clients can also receive ozone insufflation and/or probiotic reflorastation as treatment options. No sessions or treatments are ever rushed, with extra time built into the schedule for those who need a few more minutes.
“Colonics are like taking your gut to the gym—think of it as water aerobics and a bath,” Albrecht says. “Routine care can facilitate efficient elimination. Provide your body with a foundation for effective detoxification, improved immune function and health rejuvenation. Go with the flow—the road to health is paved with good intestines.”
