Very Special AlternativesSummary/services offered:
Very Special Alternatives was established in 1993 by Vonnie Schultz Albrecht, RN, a holistic nurse and colon therapist, to provide skilled nursing services to local naturopathic and holistic physicians.
What drew you to this profession?
After nearly a decade in conventional or traditional allopathic medicine, a series of events impacted Albrecht’s 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.
How does your work differ from others in your profession?
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 health care, her eclectic experience and nursing skills ensure a special touch when administering intravenous infusions, ozone therapies or colonics.
What should someone expect from working with you?
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 in for every appointment.
What changes do you plan in 2022?
Consultations and supportive services—ear coning, ozone therapies and probiotic reflorastation—are also available, with new modalities coming later in 2022. A free, 15-minute consultation is available.
What is most important for Natural Awakenings’ readers to know?
Colonics are like taking your gut to the gym—think of it as water aerobics and a bath. 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.
