Intentional Health Hawaii Colonic Certification Retreat
Instructors Lynda Newton and Terra Ann Pracht

Lynda Newton MT, CHT, LE / Intentional Health California


Lynda was born and raised in California.  While she has lived in and traveled to many states, she currently works and resides in California.

When Lynda was growing up, due to a working household, her grandmother took care of most of the grandchildren.  While not realizing it at the time, Lynda was influenced by her grandmother’s approach to bowel management, which included a garden, whole foods, giving figs, prunes, castor oil, and dispensing enemas to all the grandchildren for nothing more than health, maintenance and love.

Years later, Lynda started doing her own enemas as a way to deepen the effects of various cleanses.  She found that by adding colon cleaning to her health regimen, it assisted her body’s entire system to achieve quicker results in detoxifying itself.  It took a burden off of the body’s ability to get rid of its waste, allowing the body to quickly restore its natural pH, heighten absorption of vitamins and minerals, cleanse the blood, and stimulate lymph and immune systems.  One of her realizations was that, when we live in a world where we are exposed to over 70,000 chemicals in use today that were not in use 100 years ago, we are exposed to more today than we can eliminate.

Through many cleanses and positive results, Lynda constantly gains more knowledge, advancing her education in whole body cleansing.  She believes each person should feel free to explore and experiment to find which system works best in their situation.  This exploration requires time, trial and error, discipline, perseverance and a sense of humor to cleanse effectively and thoroughly.

Lynda obtained her colonic training at The Myrtle Tree, a well-known center for health studies, becoming a Certified Colon Hydrotherapist in 2003.

Lynda is continuing studies of Quantum Research Analysis to attain Practitioner level.  She has completed the Quantum Health, Grade II and Quantum Reflex Analysis, Level I.  Lynda has also completed her formal training at the Santa Monica School of Massage and became a Certified Massage Therapist in 2001.  Lynda has continued to serve on the Advisory Board of American Career College since 2006.  She has also completed the Labor Support (Doula) Workshop in 2008 and the Birth Doula Workshop in 2011, both through DONA International, and she completed the Healthy Breast Teacher Training Program through the Trillium Healing Arts Centre In 2011.  In 2015, Lynda became a state-licensed Esthetician and is developing her own facial protocol of “Bio Compatible Facials,” working with clients from the inside out in what they put on their bodies and in their bodies.

Committed to holistic health practices, Lynda practices and surrounds herself with integrative doctors, naturopathic doctors, acupuncturists, chiropractors, medical hypnotists, nutritionists, massage therapists, and others to support her constant evolving for clients and herself.


Terra Ann Pracht, BS Bus., CHT, E-RYT 500 / Intentional Health Hawaii


“Kealoha” Terra Ann Pracht is originally from the Los Angeles area. She received her Bachelors of Science degree in Marketing at Penn State University in 2000.  As a young person she was interested in global restoration and earth healing which led her to positions in qualitative research, the recycling industry, teaching Yoga, travel and conscious event production.  This way of live foods, cleansing and community led the way to the practice of Sacred Commerce and transformational experiences.

Terra Ann now lives on the Big Island of Hawaii and has been developing wellness programs and education at Hawaiian Sanctuary, a permaculture retreat center in Pahoa.  On the Big Island or at Hawaiian Sanctuary, Terra Ann has overseen many a retreat as well as paired up and produced retreats for permaculture and raw foods with David Wolfe and yoga trainings with Cloud Nine Yoga.

Terra Ann has found her greatest callings by staying immersed in education, taking the Practitioner class with Premier Research Labs, Compassionate Communication, 501c3 charity development, Community Building classes, ERYT 500 trainings for Yoga and more.

Today she still finds paths in expanding herself by teaming up with naturopath doctors at Aloha Wellness Retreat Center, Hawaiian Sanctuary, Intentional Health Hawaii guest experts and one-on-one private trainings for colon hydrotherapy certifications.

Some of what you can expect when receiving our IHHCCR training or a private session with Terra Ann in Hawaii are: Quantum Reflex Analysis, muscle testing, breath work, acupressure points, ear coning, cupping, all types of detoxing, including liver flushing, coffee colonics, probiotic implants and infusions, mud packing, UV sauna sharing and more!

Through her personal work, learning and teaching, she has developed herself as a body worker in her own business as a colon therapist in Hawaii.  She was trained with Lynda Newton of Intentional Health California and then created Intentional Health Hawaii in 2007. Together they have formed this one of a kind colonic certification retreat at Hawaiian Sanctuary.

We look forward to making a difference in your life!

Lynda and Terra Ann
