Arul Goldman, CHT, HHP founded SanaVita to provide holistic health services in a beautiful, tranquil setting. In addition to furthering her own studies, she continues to seek out top-notch practitioners whose expertise, compassion and devotion help SanaVita’s diverse clientele lead happier, healthier lives.

Arul became a vegetarian when she was thirteen, a transformation that marked the beginning of her lifelong investigation into nutrition and why certain foods not only nourish our bodies, but also our spirits. She first discovered colon hydrotherapy in 1995. It was the missing link she had been looking for in her own path to self-healing. She had tried many other methods of cleansing, but colon hydrotherapy was the answer she was looking for. It was gentle, painless and very effective.

While working in real estate and construction, Arul became a certified holistic health counselor at the Gullivers Institute, which later became the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She then obtained her certification in Colon Hydrotherapy and recently added Lymphatic Drainage Therapy to her set of skills. She practices Nichiren Daishonin Buddhism, Ashtanga Yoga and is a devotee of Amritanandamayi (also known as Amma, the Hugging Saint).

Arul juggles her roles as a healer, a businesswoman and a mother of two young children, while maintaining her own yoga, spiritual and nutrition regimen, always striving to maintain grace, humility and of course, a healthy dose of humor.

Why did you become a colon hydrotherapist?

I suffered from severe constipation. I was on a quest to heal myself. When I discovered colonics, it was like the heavens opened up and sang to me. After a dedicated practice of weekly colonics with periodic cleansing and proper nutritional regime, finally I was able to go to the bathroom on a daily basis again. This practice took 3 years, but at the end of it I knew I wanted to be on the other end of the table, helping people to heal themselves through the work of colonics.

What’s your favorite thing about being a therapist?

Connecting with each individual. What a blessing to have such intimate and honest time with so many unique and interesting people, people whom I may never have had the opportunity to cross paths with otherwise.

What’s your favorite food/meal?

Kale cooked in coconut oil with garlic and tamari sauce on a cold day. Or one of my famous smoothies on a hot one.

What’s your favorite recipe?

Vegetable curry & kitchari. The kitchari is easy, the curry involves a lot of chopping.

What’s your favorite quote?

”Long you’ll live and high you’ll fly, smiles you’ll give and tears you’ll cry. All you touch and all you see, is all your life will ever be.”

What’s your favorite book?

I have 2 kids. Do they still write books? Anything on a new and interesting cleansing program!

What’s your favorite movie?

Love, love, love, love, love…I LOVE love stories! And a little drama…A Bronx Tale. That was a great movie…

Who has had the most influence on your life?

That’s actually easy. Naturale and Seven of course! (Those are my kids.)

What do you do when you’re not at SanaVita?

Take care of Naturale and Seven.

Which supplements do you find indispensable in your own life?

Probiotics. Digestive enzymes. Chlorophyll.

How do you like to cleanse when you’re cleansing?

I just love cleansing. I used to be dogmatic, totally hard core, only juice, master cleanse, no supplements. Now that my life is more demanding and I don’t have the luxury of getting massages, taking steams and doing yoga all day, I like to support myself with high quality supplements and nutrient rich powders during my cleanse.

How do you like to indulge, when you do?

Icing. (Who needs the cake when you’ve got icing?) And Tasti D-Lite with toppings.

If you had to give only one piece of health advice, what would it be?

Give up the heavy starches, breads, pastas, pastries, etc. Exchange them for healthy oils and fats (coconut oil & avocados being my 2 faves!) You’ll be doing your intestines a BIG favor while dropping extra weight with ease.

Why did you become a colon hydrotherapist?

After my training in nutrition, I was providing coaching and whole foods education while managing a wellness center for a physician’s practice in Orange County, NY. This physician asked me to become trained in Colon Hydrotherapy with Cathy Shea at the International School for Colon Hydrotherapy. I said no three times. The fourth time I was asked I finally said yes. When I attended my training, I had begun a liver cleanse followed by a few colonics. I then released hundreds of stones and felt like I was 16 again, fully alive & so impressed with how the liver cleanse simply shifted the health of my whole being. Yes, this doctor offered me a gift. I then made a commitment to myself to help others know this AMAZING feeling and liver cleanse. I have not stopped since.

What’s your favorite thing about being a therapist?

Working with clients that want to…who are committed to…who are entirely ready to HEAL! Giving people their POWER back. Hearing the client express that they have the power to heal from within. That is key. Hearing how they are focused. Then hearing that they are sharing their experience. Therefore, others can heal as well.

What’s your favorite quote?
