Welcome to the
Bekki Medsker School
Offering Education for a
Career in Colon Hydrotherapy
The Bekki Medsker School of Colon Hydrotherapy offers the
most professional training program available to the individual seeking a career
in Colon Hydrotherapy. This course
outline provides the information you need to make decisions about Colon
Hydrotherapy as a career and whether or not this is the best course of study
for you. You can expect a more advanced
level of educational and practical (hands on) experience in the art,
philosophy, and science of colon hydrotherapy.
Our curriculum format is designed to prepare you to pass the
International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy (I-ACT) certification tests
and the National Board for Colon Hydrotherapy exam. We offer instruction on both the closed and
open colon hydrotherapy systems.
Bekki Medsker has doctorate degrees in Naturopathy and
Chiropathy. She is an
I-ACT/NBCHT Certified Colon Hydrotherapy Instructor and has
a school recognized by I-ACT for colon hydrotherapy training. In her own practice, she specializes in bowel
retraining of paraplegics, quadriplegics and victims of post trauma syndrome.
Dr. Bekki started studying natural health when she was
sixteen years old. Her best friend’s
mother introduced her to a book titled Back
to Eden by Jethro Kloss. That was
the beginning of her quest to learn more about natural health. She has attended many universities and
schools and has received a Bachelor of Science with a specialization in Herbal
Studies and a Doctor of Naturopathy degree from Clayton College of Natural
Health in Birmingham, Alabama. She also attended the Romano Byzantine College
in Fairfax, Virginia and received a Doctorate in Chiropathy. She continues her own education by attending
a variety of seminars on natural health care alternatives on a regular
basis. She is married to Dennis Medsker
who is not only her life partner, but also her business partner. Dr. Dennis Medsker is a chiropractor and
practices holistic health care in their clinic near Florence, South Carolina.
He specializes in trauma, spinal cord injuries and spontaneous healing.
Not only are both Medskers practicing professional health
care providers but they are also professional educators. Collectively, they have over 35 years of
teaching experience. They have designed
the highest level of colon hydrotherapy instruction available in the market
place. Their course of study sets the
standards for the industry.
Dr. Bekki received divine inspiration to bring colon
hydrotherapy to South Carolina. After receiving her training from Cathy Shea in
1997, she left the commercial banking industry to become a fulltime colon
hydrotherapist. She continued her
studies with Connie Allred at the Internal Environment Institute in Los
Angeles, California, followed by Sandra Dugan at the Cayce-Reilly School of
Massotherapy in Virginia Beach, Virginia; Jim Girouard at Colon Therapeutics
Research in Groves, Texas; and Rocco Bruno at Lifestream Colon Hydrotherapy
Institute in Austin, Texas. In 2001, she
felt the need to share her accumulated knowledge with other colon
hydrotherapists and was invited to become a faculty member at the International
School of Colon Hydrotherapy.
The Bekki Medsker School opened in 2003, and has expanded
its student base every year since.
A career in colon hydrotherapy requires an investment of
time and money. It makes sense to get
the best value for the time and money spent.
A well designed curriculum is the foundation of a quality
education. Dr. Bekki’s curriculum is
very unique and specifically designed for accelerated learning. Students will be introduced to advanced
learning techniques which are presented in an easy-to-learn format.
The Bekki Medsker School has created a logical step-by-step
learning format that provides a road map for each student to follow in their
quest for knowledge. Dr. Bekki’s unique talent as an instructor allows the
student to learn with a depth of understanding not available anywhere
Cost vs Value
A wise man once said: “If you think education is expensive,
try a little ignorance.” It is never
wise to pay too much for anything; but it is shortsighted to buy less than what
you need. If you are seeking the highest
quality training available along with small class size, the Bekki Medsker
School has both. You will leave with the
knowledge and confidence you need to start your own practice and provide top
