Terry and Val married in Tamworth, NSW in 1959. Previously, Terry had been involved with farming activities, specialising in irrigation design, selling and installation. However in our early years of marriage, we had a newsagency for ten years. We then purchased our mixed farming property 18 km out of Tamworth where we raised five children and enjoyed life there for 32 years.
Terry was then diagnosed with a meningioma tumour on the brain and was operated on at Royal North Shore Hospital, Sydney, in 1999.
This was a dramatic turning point in our lives and we sold our property in December 2000 and bought a motorhome in January 2001. We wanted to have a break and see many parts of this beautiful and diverse country in which we live.
During this time, we visited a health farm where we had a 10 day detox and experienced a complete change in our eating habits. As well, we were reading many books on health and alternative medicine.
Colon health stood out as a basic need of maintaining good health and overcoming disease. As life and death starts with the colon and there being a great shortage of colon therapists in Australia, we saw the need to help out in this area. Terry had been given a second chance of life and believed God was now calling on him to help other people in his retirement years. We contacted the Australian Institute of Health and Terry studied while we were travelling, to become a Colon Therapist, specialing in Colonic Irrigation.
We bought our present home in 2005 and Terry then completed his final and practical qualifications at the Gold Coast. We set up for business in 2008 and had our first clients in February 2009.
Terry is very happy to be able to relieve problems for many people when they come here. He has seen some incredible results from many clients and thanks God for the opportunity to help people in this way.
