About

Iya Makida Osae’s spiritual journey into health and traditional medicine began in the mid 1960’s.  In 1970 she began her training in the science of psychic healing and herbology.  She graduated from the Okonnede Shrine under direct tutorship of Nana Okomfoheni Oparebeah, former chief priest, Ghana, West Africa.

Iya Osae brings over 30 years of experience to the role of Colon Hydrotherapist and over-all health and well-being.  She began her journey to colon health in 1981 due to her near death experience in 1980 and decided to add colon hydrotherapy to her health routine and practice.

In 1981, Iya received her Colon Hydrotherapy Certification with Dr. Allen Wood at the Wood Institute in Gary Indiana.  She continued her education the Hippocrates Health Institute, studying the science of raw food preparations and rejuvenating the body through raw food, juicing, yoga, meditation and colon care with well-known raw food pioneer and nutritional expert, Ann Wigmore, Boston, Mass.

Iya interned and volunteered with a team of indigenous and international practitioners in self-help projects in 1987-1994 at the Sserulanda Healing Centre in Uganda, East Africa, creating systems for clean water, teaching herbal preparations, nutrition and hygiene, and providing colon hydrotherapy and massage therapy.

In 2009, Iya completed the Holistic Practitioner Certification with Dr. Llaila O. Afrika  in Washington, D.C.  and in 2010 rendered her expertise at the Fountain of Life Wellness Spa in Washington, D.C.  In addition to her passion for volunteer work, Iya holds a BFA from Rutgers University and a Masters  in Fine Arts from Howard University.

"I appreciate that Dr. Johnson takes time to communicate with me and my husband, not just about our teeth- but about our lives. Then he educates us on a long term reality of creating healthy teeth and gums. He shares his humor and passion for life with us. When we walk away, my day is better and brighter. Thank you." 9/3/13

"The weight is simply falling off...Meeting with Eve has literally changed my life. I have been battling thyroid and other autoimmune problems for over 20 years. I was constantly fatigued; 25 pounds overweight and had horrible PMS symptoms. As someone who never cooked, I was spending a lot of money eating out or throwing frozen dinners in the microwave and ruining my health in the process. I was miserable and desperate for help. However, I have to confess that as a lifelong chocoholic, when Eve told me that I would no longer crave chocolate and sweets on this program, I had my doubts. Fast forward 6 weeks and I am a changed woman. I have discovered a whole new world of foods and actually enjoy cooking! I am no longer yo-yoing from having “good” eating days to “bad” eating days; most days I cannot finish the amount of food I had planned to eat. The strange thing is that after years of going on diets, feeling deprived, and then falling off the wagon, this new way of life has been so easy to implement and maintain. And, yes, the cravings for chocolate and sweets have gone completely. Not only do I feel better but I am also fitting into clothes I have not been able to wear in 8 years. The weight is falling off and yet I am honestly eating more food than I have ever done in the past. My PMS symptoms have all but disappeared. You just have to trust the process – it works!"
