Feature: Doody Free Girl, at the Brunswick Center

Poop. Caca. Doody. Whatever you call it, Jen Gonzalez — better known as Doody Free Girl — is ready to help you better flush it out of your system.

While many blush at the topic, Gonzalez has no problem talking about the bathroom issues she says many of us face.



”We don’t eat natural foods, we’re eating processed foods that our body doesn’t recognize as food. The food is sticking to our walls and we’re not digesting it properly. We’re experiencing stomach troubles, reflux, diarrhea and constipation — as a society, we’re very constipated,” said Gonzalez frankly. “You have to make sure you’re regular on some level.”



The solution? Eating and egesting cleaner, she says. To help people cleanse their systems, Gonzalez provides colonic services using a natural, non-pressurized method of colon hydrotherapy.



”We use the gravity method, which is 100% natural and just uses an elevated tank of water. We use filtered water and cleanse the large intestine, or colon, where toxins and waste stores up to keep things moving,” Gonzalez explained.

Gonzalez first discovered colonics while looking for an effective diet. She found a raw vegetarian diet coupled with regular colonics helped her not just keep the weight off, but also keep her body feeling refreshed.



Fascinated by the idea of detoxing and cleansing, Gonzalez started a bowel health blog and studied nutrition and colonics. Now, she helps people — especially women — address their colon needs.



”I realized most of my clients were female. They weren’t going to the bathroom when they had to go; they hold it in,” said Gonzalez. 



”I want people to know it’s OK to talk about it. And girls can bond over it — you know you’re a good friend when you can talk about poop — but most of all, there’s an underlying health issue. You can’t be healthy if you’re not eliminating.”



In addition to offering colonics, Doody Free Girl also sells bathroom and colon health products including novelty items like natural air freshener Poopourri (“I want to be the one-stop poop shop,” said Gonzalez with a laugh.)



They’ve even got fresh grab-n-go food and juices prepared by a personal chef specializing in clean, healthy foods.



”It’s important to eat a little cleaner than normal during the day of treatment to make sure you can digest properly,” explained Gonzalez.



Gonzalez added that she’s excited to be in a health-conscious community like the Brunswick Center and in Downtown Jersey City. The former Williamsburg resident said her friends back in Brooklyn call JC “the next borough” and she can see why.



“I quickly fell in love with the location and the idea of the Brunswick Center. I have a whole new appreciation for the town and I’m in love with it,” she said. “I feel like it’s headed in a good direction and it’s exciting.”
