Tummy Temple staff is leading the effort to establish a new law that would ensure access to colon hydrotherapy in WA State. Learn all about the history and current activity of this effort by visiting www.waach.org. The bottom line is that the colon hydrotherapy industry is under attack and being perceived by the Department of Health as the practice of medicine, only to be performed by a doctor. This would eliminate 95% of the providers in WA State and drive the costs of the service up by 200%.
Thanks to the awesome outreach by our client community and professional network, we have achieved the support of the legislature and are steadily working toward passing a bill into law in January of 2020.
What can you do to join this movement and secure your access to this valuable wellness service?
Donate, please. Every political campaign requires financial support and this one is no different. 100% of all donations go directly to lobbyist fees and all other effort is volunteer. Who knew that your local colon hydrotherapist is also a political activist?! We need to raise $12,000 to ensure lobbying support through the legislative season. Any and every amount helps!
Establish a relationship with your legislator. When the bill is ready, and sponsorship is secured, we will need our community to encourage legislators to vote for it. We will keep you updated with how to proceed, but in the meantime, let your legislator know about this issue and how important it is to you. Send them an email and let them know that you will follow up with bill specifics in the coming weeks.
