Sue Wilde - Founder of Inner Garden Health

Sue is certified with the National Board of Colon Hydrotherapy (NBCHT), Certified instructor of colon hydrotherapy with the International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy (I-ACT), and a Certified Yoga Instructor.

She started her healing journey 30+ years ago when she was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome after a demanding 15-year career with Canadian Airlines. Debilitated and unable to work, she knew she had to change her life physically, mentally and spiritually.

Sue began a lengthy journey to discover ways to regain her health. Her path began with yoga and naturopathy and evolved into a deep dive into meditation and Ayurvedic medicine. She attended 3 Vipassana retreats and found deeper mental and spiritual support through a rebirthing and clearing process during her Practitioners training at Clearmind Institute. Working with Ayurvedic Doctors in Florida, she did a series of 10-day Panchakarma cleanses and this is where she first experienced the transformative power of colonics. Then in 2000, she and her husband attended the Optimum Health Institute (O.H.I.) in San Diego for 4 weeks, where she engaged in a daily detox program, drinking and implanting wheatgrass juice, and learned how to prepare raw foods, grow wheatgrass, and micro greens.

After this 7-year healing journey, she returned home feeling energized and years younger. She was inspired to share her knowledge to support others on their healing journeys, and in 2000, Inner Garden Wheatgrass and Colon therapy was born.

Sue is passionate about sharing the knowledge she has gained and experienced over 30+ years in order to help clients enjoy abundant health.

She is thrilled to announce the expansion of Inner Garden Health with the Opening of the Inner Garden School of Colon Hydrotherapy, a program for training and certifying colon hydrotherapists. For more information and details please visit the tab at the top of the page "Inner Garden School"

Valerie Maundrell

Valerie Maundrell

Valerie is an I-ACT Certified Colon Hydrotherapist, a Transformational Breath® Facilitator Intern and has a Bachelor of Science (Dental Hygiene Specialization). Faced with a health challenge of rheumatoid arthritis in 2018, Valerie chose to treat her condition using alternative therapies. Changing her diet to a raw (living) vegan plant based diet and working closely with an osteopath, a naturopath (supplementation) and a TCM doctor (Chinese herbs), Valerie’s health began to improve. Colon hydrotherapy accelerated her healing by improving her sleep, reducing inflammation and reducing pain.

Valerie was then introduced to the work of Dr. Joe Dispenza and learned how her thoughts and emotional triggers had contributed to her health challenge. Around the same time, Valerie was introduced to Transformational Breath® and began to integrate the trauma that was causing the emotional triggers and her passion for this form of breathwork was ignited. In August of 2019, Valerie attended the Hippocrates Health Institute in Florida to experience and learn more about alternative healing therapies. This is where she was introduced to the symptoms of toxicity and different ways to detoxify through the diet, infrared saunas and colon hydrotherapy. Upon her return she found Inner Garden Health and later became a colon hydrotherapist. Valerie is excited to share with others what she has learned on her own healing journey. Other interests of Valerie’s include: meditation, yoga, traveling, enjoying the outdoors and spending time with her loved ones.

Amanda started her journey in natural healthcare in 2009 after graduating as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist from the Canadian School for Natural Nutrition. She immediately began working at the Center for Biological Medicine in Ontario, Canada. After working there for 5 years it became very clear that there was a need to provide the patients with more resources for healthy detoxification. In 2014 she completed the certification program through Prime Pacific Health innovations to be a colon hydrotherapist. She then used the skills she learned to run her own colonics business for 5 years. In that time,she worked with a lot of individuals dealing with cancer and Lyme disease. It became her priority to make sure that every client got the necessary care and treatment needed for their unique circumstances. She is continuing to expand her interests and scope of understanding in the field of detoxification. It is her focus to help you achieve your health goals.

I really enjoyed my experience with Jen today. She made me very comfortable and I thought she was personable, thoughtful, and gentle with my session. I like the energy of the building because most of the other offices are also wellness related professionals. Good vibes all around and I would recommend anyone who is serious about holistic health to come try a session with the team here.
