Very Special Alternatives was established in 1993 by Vonnie Schultz Albrecht, RN to provide skilled nursing services to local naturopathic and holistic physicians. After nearly a decade in “conventional” or “traditional” allopathic medicine, a series of events impacted her health and mobility. A career shift was the only hope to avoid looming disability, and a tiny, classified ad held the answer. She had no idea how her world, and her mind, were going to evolve and expand.
During her training as a chelation nurse, Albrecht was introduced to a holistic patient approach, alternative therapies and integrative medicine. She witnessed improvement or healing of conditions she had previously treated with allopathic care. Her own health also improved as underlying causes were addressed. With more than 40 years in healthcare, her eclectic experience and nursing skill ensure a special touch when administering intravenous infusions, ozone therapies or colonics.
Albrecht believes that colon health is the foundation for health and well-being. In 2021, she marks 25 years as a colon therapist. In her new location, a warm, relaxing space creates a safe, reassuring environment for first-time clients or those who prefer a more comfort-focused setting. Her unique system integrates a full, gravity-flow water source with a FDA-approved colonic instrument. Her “Slow Flow” method minimizes the use of pressure and utilizes a gentle stream of purified water to cleanse the buildup of waste and restore natural function. Sessions or treatments are never rushed, with extra time built into the schedule for every appointment.
Consultations and supportive services—ear coning, ozone therapies, and probiotic reflorastation—are also available, with new modalities coming later in 2021. A free, 15-minute consultation is available.
“Remember, 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.” See ads, pages 2 and 42.
