How can colon therapy benefit me?

Colon hydrotherapy is an amazing treatment that gives you a kick start in improving your diet, lifestyle and exercise regime.

Individuals suffering from constipation and bloating can benefit greatly from  colon hydrotherapy.  Likewise, if you suffer from toxicity of the bowels your symptoms can be greatly relieved by cleansing the colon.

It’s true to say,  a session of colonic hydrotherapy  literally acts like a “workout” for your colon. It can restore and encourage peristalsis. ( the name of the muscle movement of the colon ) When peristalsis is reactivated, the colon will tone up, thereby helping to provide more normal elimination functions.

healthy imsgr of colonic juiceFor any clients wishing to embark on a detox programme, colon hydrotherapy and an eating plan are a great combination for any detox. Whatever the detox programme you choose and whatever the reason, weight loss or lack of energy etc, colon hydrotherapy can assist in clearing toxins out of the body as quickly as possible.

Colon hydrotherapy is a fantastic option when dealing with a high stress lifestyle which requires the individual to perform consistently at his/her peak. Stress often manifests in some conditions, so many high stress individuals may be stressedconstipated or bloated as a result.

A combination of colon hydrotherapy, diet overhaul and appropriate exercise programme, can assist in improving metabolism and improve energy levels and mental clarity, and reduce stress levels associated with the lifestyle.

Many health problems can be helped with colon hydrotherapy.

As well as bloating and digestive disorders, a compacted, sluggish colon can also cause many other common problems.

For example, a toxic colon can contribute towards:

Constipation         Diarrhoea               Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

Bloated stomach       Wind              Indigestion        Headaches

Bad breath              Food cravings           Weight problems   Poor sleeping patterns

Bladder infection       Prostate problems       Menstrual problems

Puffy or dry eyes           Skin and nail problems      Irritability

Anxiety and depression

All of the above can be greatly reduced by colonic hydrotherapy.

If its good enough for Gwynnie….

 

 

muppet

The Christmas and party binging is over.

 

No more excuses and no chronic last pigouts.

 

gwyneth paltrowMade popular by the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow ( the Cleanses’s fave celeb! ) amongst many others. Its detox time once again.  Our Gwynnie has, for years been an advocate of colonic irrigation.  She mentions regularly about colonic hydrotherapy on her lifestyle website Gloop.

 

 

Well good news!! You don’t need to be a Hollywood a-lister !!!

The Cleanse, colonic hydrotherapy is in Barnet!!!

And you dont have to be part of the super rich either as our extended offer of 2 colonics for just £80.00 mean that you will be saving a massive £40!!! 

It really is the moment to reclaim your body and your health.

But where to begin when left with the bloated and weighty repercussions of intense end-of-the year gluttony? It’s not easy to detox when you’re caught in crave-the-entire-bread-basket before-your-starter-has-even-arrived cycle. Not to mention that you’re lethargic from not enough sleep and too low on energy to hit the gym.

Rather, you’re filled with endless excuses as to why tomorrow will be a better day to get back into the routine of healthy living.

This Isn’t Just Laying Off The Booze For a Few Weeks

Just like the spring and winter cleaning we do for our home, it’s great to do the same with your body and detox at least twice a year as the seasons change.

natural energiserDetoxing can be a test of discipline and dedication. Regular detoxers swear it boosts energy, increases mental clarity and has skin glowing. For first time detoxers the best results come to those who are able to spend a few days out of your normal schedule and really concentrate on the task in a gentle manner.  Forgoing meats, dairy, grains, fish and fiber and subsisting only on fresh, organic fruits and vegetable juices is easier to maintain when far away from  others. Its all about preparation and forward thinking, making the experience as easy as possible.

A three to five day detox can really welcome the return of energy, restful sleep and overall good feeling. A two-week detox is obvioulsy tougher but brings on significant yet natural weight loss. Most people see 5-7 lbs melt off in a week and as much as 20 lbs in two weeks. After the initial three days of the more challenging 2 week option, detoxers find that hunger pangs, cravings and nausea from low blood sugar disappear. Colonic hydrotherapy in conjunction with your detox will make sure you see the optimum results.

The Cleanse has offers running throughout January to help you on your journey to a healthier happier you.  Contact us NOW.

Christmas tips for food swaps.

 

 

Let Colonic Hydrotherapy help you feel less bloated in the run up to the PARTY season.  A course of colonic sessions can really make you feel slimmer and more energised.

Our Offer of 2 colonics for just £80.00 will be running throughout December and January.  So contact us NOW on 07470 348093

At this time of year we often rush around , stressed and eating whatever is to hand as we are so busy. Also, in the coming weeks we seem to continuously be offered many foods we wouldn’t eat all year – Quality Street on tap and lots of mince pies!!!!

With this in mind, THE CLEANSE offers some healthy food swaps that will help you make the right choices to treat yourself this Christmas without loading up on fattening and high-calorie dishes that result in unwanted weight gain.

 

white-wine-spritzer-recipe-lemonChristmas cheer comes with binge drinking and all the empty calories of alcohol. Try to choose low-calorie beverages instead.
If you must drink, then instead of having a glass of white wine, mix half wine and half carbonated water to save over 50 calories.

jumbo-shrimpEat shrimp instead of fried appetizers
There’s no need to give up on appetisers while you’re mingling at a party. Save over 100 calories by choosing three jumbo shrimp with some sauce instead of fried snacks. Shrimp also has a low saturated fat content.

Make a healthier choice by choosing dark chocolateDon’t be tempted by gourmet chocolate and candy, and satisfy your sweet tooth with some dark chocolate instead. It has a lower calorie and fat content. Dark chocolate also contains flavonoids that have heart-healthy benefits.

Munch on popcorn
If you’re hosting a party and want to choose a light snack for your guests to munch on, try popcorn instead of salted mixed nuts. This will help save over 500 calories and 25 grams of carbohydrates per cup!

Keep your Christmas cocoa drink simple
Instead of selecting a speciality drink that contains whipped cream, sugar or ice-cream in a coffee shop, opt for a hot chocolate with fat-free milk. You’ll save about 150-200 calories by making this simple switch.

Lighten up the potatoes
Baked potatoes are a good source of Vitamin C and fibre, but the added cheese, cream, and butter cancels out its health benefits. One medium stuffed potato contains about 300 calories and 9 grams of saturated fat.
Use low-fat dairy products or add low-calorie vegetables like onions and spinach to create a lighter version of stuffed potatoes. Roasted sweet potatoes are also a great alternative and contain only half of the calories.

turkeySkip red meat, eat white turkey meat
This ones a no brainer for this time of year!!!Turkey is a good source of protein. A turkey breast packs more flavour than chicken, and is also relatively lower in fat. A serving of turkey breast without the skin is only about 160 calories, with most pieces containing only 1 to 4 grams of fat.

Choose salsa and yoghurt dips over full-fat dipssalsa
Appetisers need dips, but you will consume too many calories from dips made with full-fat cream or cheese. Substitute full-fat cream with low-fat or non-fat yogurt. Choose fresh salsa over fattening dips. You will save 125 calories per 1/2 cup.

Make a healthier choice by choosing dark chocolate
Don’t be tempted by gourmet chocolate and candy, and satisfy your sweet tooth with some dark chocolate instead. It has a lower calorie and fat content. Dark chocolate also contains flavonoids that have heart-healthy benefits.

Cheesecake is always a crowd favourite during the holidays. The problem is that one large slice of cheesecake has about 300-500 calories and 20-30 grams of fat. This is without accounting for the calories from assorted flavours and toppings. A regular slice of cheesecake is loaded with cream cheese, sour cream, whole milk, sugar, and heavy whipping cream.

cheescake Check out lighter versions of cheesecake recipes and garnish it with fresh fruits instead.

Most of all though, Christmas is a time for family, friends and fun, so make sure you are kind to yourself and ENJOY!

fad diets

 

 

As the silly season approaches, here at THE CLEANSE we ask our self  ” Why is it that common sense disappears when a celebrity swears by the latest fad?

This is in honor of our silly compulsions and get-skinny-quick desires.

zoe-kravitz

1. Clay Cleanse

We’ve heard of celebrities doing ridiculous diets that include maple syrup, purple foods and baby food – but now there’s one that involves drinking clay. Actual clay made from volcanic ash – yikes. Both Zoe Kravitz and Shailene Woodley have admitted using the clay cleanse, with Zoe using it to lose weight for a film role that saw her portraying an anorexic and bulimic – she reportedly lost 20lbs. She told Us Weekly: ‘I ended up drinking clay because it cleans out your body and fills you up. I was eating like a Mason jar of pureed vegetables a day and running.’

shailiene-woodley
Shiliene Woodley

Does clay have cleansing abilities that help remove toxins? Yes. But usually clay is used as a face mask to remove skin impurities, or used in a culinary context to eliminate toxicants in food sources.

This wacky trend was brought to the spotlight by actress Shailene Woodley, who described clay as “one of the best things you can put into your body,”. But other than that hype, there is no substantial evidence that clays remove toxins, or that they should be consumed as a purifying measure. There are far better ways to get minerals, and besides, our liver and kidneys do a pretty good job detoxifying our bodies without mud. Let them do their job.

The science behind the clay cleanse is that the substance has binding properties, which cleanse your digestive track by sticking all the rubbish together and removing it when you poo.clay
Bentonite clay comes in powder form and is mixed with water. Dieters will lose weight because it helps keep them fuller for longer, as well as sweeping out the toxins and heavy metals from the body.
Sarah Brewer, doctor and author of The Total Detox Plan, says ‘[It] isn’t something she would recommend. Clay is very binding, so it could cause constipation and long-term it could even remove useful things from the body like iron.’
And it gets worse: the Food Standards Agency has warned that some products bought from online retailers have been found to contain arsenic, exposure to which could lead to ‘an increased risk of lung, skin and bladder cancer.’

Looks like you should just stick to your good old healthy eating plan instead…

2. Cricket Protein250px-criquet-1l

This one just screams…Im  A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!!! Okay, this may not be damaging to your health, but it’s certainly strange and may take some getting used to before they become mainstream. Crickets have already found their way into plenty of popular foods: protein bars, dried as a snack (similar to dried fruit), flour, chips, and cookies.

That’s right, protein derived from creepy, crawly, and even winged creatures is generating buzz among the health obsessed as the new go-to food for fueling your workouts and staying fit and lean.

“When it comes to bugs, the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization has identified almost 2,000 types of edible insect species,” says Vandana Sheth, RDN, CDE, and spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. In fact, in 2013 the UN released a report arguing that insects are a viable — and highly nutritious food source, rich in protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals and healthy fats.

Beyond that, eating insects might be good for the environment, offering an easy, cheap way to feed people worldwide as the planet’s population steadily climbs towards the nine billion mark.

3. The Blood-Type Diet

Researchers from the University of Toronto discovered the theory behind the blood-type diet, which claims an individual’s nutritional needs depends on their blood type, is unfounded and invalid.

martine-mcuthon
The amazing Martine!

Popularized by the popular book Eat Right For Your Type, the theory maintained that one’s blood type can improve health and lower the risk of chronic illnesses like cardiovascular disease. These researchers shut the notion down, saying someone’s ability to respond favorably to a diet depends on his or her ability to stay on the diet, not on their type of blood.

In Eat Right For Your Type Dr D’Admao matches the blood type to dietary recommendations, summarised here.

•The O diet Eat meat (high protein, low carbohydrate). Cut out wheat and most other grains. Engage in vigorous aerobic exercise. Your risk factors for ulcers and inflammatory diseases such as arthritis increase if you eat incorrectly for your type.

•The A diet You should be largely vegetarian (eating a high carbohydrate, low fat diet). Engage in gentle exercise such as yoga or golf and meditate to deal with stress. Your risk factors for cancer and heart disease increase if you eat incorrectly, according to Dr D’Admao.

•The B diet You should have the most varied diet of all the blood types, one including meat; yours is the only blood type that does well with dairy products. Engage in exercise such as moderate swimming or walking. Your risk for slow-growing viruses that attack the nervous system increases if you eat incorrectly for your type.

•The AB diet You have most of the benefits and intolerances of types A and B, so most foods which are recommended for either type A or B will also work for you. Engage in calming exercises and relaxation techniques. You have the friendliest immune system.

In the UK 46 per cent of people have O type blood, 42 per cent A, nine per cent B and three per cent A/B.

Cheryl Cole, Martine McCutcheon, Mirander Kerr and our very own Sir Cliff Richard have all at one time or another been on the blood type diet.

4. Butter Coffeebutter-coffee

Now this one is very controversial in my house as my husband, Jamie, swears by them!!! Bulletproof Coffee, recently back int he news, is a caffeinated concoction. Not your typical cup of coffee, it’s brewed with two-thirds of a stick of grass-fed butter. Let’s be clear; grass-fed butter is still butter, whether it comes from cows, sheep, goats, or yaks, it’s still adding 100 to 200 calories to your coffee.

The beverage is said to boost energy, shrink your waistline, and promote brain function, however a report in the Daily Mail says “any extra energy experienced by drinkers is merely a placebo effect,”.

Butter is high in saturated fat, which raises cholesterol and increases your risk of heart disease and stroke. But those who follow the Paleo diet will likely be fans of the coffee since it falls within their hat-fat regimen.

 

5. Charcoal Cleanse

Hospitals use a special charcoal cocktail to flush poison and alcohol out of patients’ systems. In 2014, normal people decided the black mess at the bottom of their grill would work great as a cleansing agent.

Activated charcoal is special, The DailyBurn reports, because of its efficacy in large surface areas. Carbon is treated with an oxidizing agent, which turns it to a fine dust with millions of pores and an immediate surface area that reduces the body’s absorption of poison (drugs and alcohol) by 47 percent. Everything—charcoal doesn’t discriminate, it will absorb everything—in your gut will stick to the charcoal and move through your body to be expelled in your next bowel movement. Lovely.fads celebrity

charcoalThis black, sandy substance may have a proven track record in urgent care settings, but that doesn’t mean it’s safe to self-administer. If you decide to use it anyway,  take it under the guidance of a doctor so they can track your liver and enzyme levels, to ensure your body is not becoming depleted of essential nutrients.

It’s also important to note that the powder, which will turn your stools black when ingested, can mask upper GI bleeding that may be a side effect of serious digestive distress.

The biggest thing to keep in mind is to figure out the cause of your digestive problem before running to take activated charcoal. There might be something else going on in your system that is causing your symptoms.

yoga for digestion

 

sting

Proper digestion has the ability to make or break one’s overall wellness. Digestion is the nucleus of our energy regulation, and we don’t operate well when we’re feeling sluggish, bloated, or queasy. Optimal digestion leads to regular elimination, which is the body’s natural way of flushing out toxins and waste. However in today’s fast paced world many factors such as poor diet, stress and environment can all play a part in an overworked system, leaving us feeling bloated and lethargic.  Colonic hydrotherapy can be a great way to jumpstart your journey to a healthier, more energised you! The treatment is a safe way of flushing toxins from your body which will reflect in your well being, giving you glowing skin, mental clarity, more energy and less stress!

Book your session today on 07470 348 093 or fill out our contact form.

 

1. Apanasana

Apanasana, knees hugged to belly, is known as the “wind-relieving pose.” Hugging the right knee into the belly massages the ascending colon, while hugging the left knee in massages the descending colon. Try this simple pose for improved digestion:

yoga

Come to lie on the back. Settle into your yoga mat or wherever you are. Place your feet to the floor, directly beneath the knees. On an inhale, take your hands to your knees. On an exhale, hug the knees comfortably to the belly. Only hug in a comfortable amount. Stay here for 5-10 full breaths.

(Optional: follow with hugging one knee in at a time, first the right and then the left).

2. Twists

yoga-2

We’ve all heard yoga teachers say, “Twisting aids digestion.” It used to go in one ear and out the other, until my own yoga teacher training. Compressing the colon in specific ways (right to left) can really aid in digestion. Detoxifying twists can stimulate the movement of those toxins that accumulate in the body and help usher them out.

Move from apanasana into a simple spinal twist. Hug the knees in gently and take an inhale. On the exhale, drop the knees to the left, compressing the right side of the body. Turn the head to the right for a nice neck stretch. Stay for at 5-10 full breaths. On an inhale return the knees to center and repeat on the other side.

3. Balasana

childs-pose

Balasana, Child’s Pose, compresses the abdomen and massages the internal organs. Similar to apanasana, this pose stimulates the digestive system.

From lying on your back, hug the knees in once more. Roll to your right side, using the right arm as a pillow for the head. Take an inhale and, on the exhale, use the top arm to push up to seated. Come to kneel on the knees and sit back onto the heels. Bringing the knees comfortably wide, fold over the legs and rest your forehead on the floor. Either place the hands back by the feet or stack them under the forehead as a little pillow. Deeply inflate the lower belly against the upper thighs with each breath in Balasana, and remain here for 5-10 full breaths. On the last inhale take your hands to the floor beneath your shoulders and, on your exhale, press up.

If you’ve ever suffered from indigestion, irregular elimination, food allergy symptoms (basically, if you’re human!), you could benefit from these digestion improving yoga postures.

Practicing yoga is excellent at generally increasing one’s physical awareness, which can lead to more mindful eating and, thus, better digestion.

 

detox tips

 

ape-ull-up

All that food, booze, late nights and partying inevitably takes its toll on our bodies. Come the end of it, we’re all gasping for a good clean-out, which is why abstaining from alcohol, taking some exercise, eating healthily and detoxing is the way forward!  Detox itself is the body’s natural process of neutralizing or eliminating toxins from the body. Toxins are anything that can potentially harm body tissue and can be produced naturally, ingested through our diet or inhaled from our environment.

In a perfect world our bodies would perform the detox process by themselves, however in our “want it now” society we more often then not find we need  a little help, this is exactly where colonic hydrotherapy CAN help!  A course of colon therapy can really kickstart your journey to a healthier, happier you!

Along with colonic therapy there are many ways we can assist our bodies to detox. It is thought that certain food types and herbs can assist the process, and even help to speed it up.

Our view? Healthy eating can never be a bad thing.

We encourage healthy eating, happiness and exercise along with a tailored plan for colonic hydrotherapy for optimum health benefits.  Colonic Hydrotherapy can help with losing weight, contribute to glowing skin and restore balance and energy.  A course of sessions can really make a difference to dealing with stress, bloating and IBS.

selection of vegEAT FRESH PRODUCE

Our first tip is an oldie but a goldie….You should be getting NINE servings of fruits and vegetables daily. Fresh produce is packed with vitamins A, C and E, phytochemicals, minerals, carbs and fiber, produce is healthy, filling, and naturally low in calories and fat. Enjoy eating fresh produce it at meals, snacks and before/after exercise to stay full, feel energized and lose weight. Vegetables and fruits are an important part of a healthy diet, and variety is as important as quantity. No single fruit or vegetable provides all of the nutrients you need to be healthy. Eat plenty everyday.

A diet rich in vegetables and fruits can lower blood pressure, reduce risk of heart disease and stroke, prevent some types of cancer, lower risk of eye and digestive problems, and have a positive effect upon blood sugar which can help keep appetite in check. Eat a variety of types and colors of produce in order to give your body the mix of nutrients it needs. Try dark leafy greens; brightly colored red, yellow and orange vegetables and fruits; and cooked tomatoes.

Eat more vegetables and fruits each day

1. Keep fruit where you can see it. That way you’ll be more likely to eat it.

2. Explore the produce aisle and choose something new. Variety is the key to a healthy diet.

food

3. Skip the potatoes. Choose other vegetables that are packed with more nutrients and more slowly digested carbohydrates.

4. Make it a meal. Try cooking new recipes that include more vegetables. Salads and stir fries are two ideas for getting tasty vegetables on your plate.

Detox Water.

lemon in water

I drink this for a week before a big event to help me flush my body of toxins and to debloat. I drink at least eight 8 oz cups or more depending on my activity level. Not only does this taste good…it works.

Here’s the recipe for the Natural  Detox Water: (for one 24 oz serving) –

3-5 slices of fresh cucumber

– 1/2 small lemon sliced
– 1/4 of orange sliced
– a few fresh mint leaves
– 24 oz of ice cold water

Why does this work?

*Cucumbers prevent water retention and also have many anti-inflammatory properties. *Lemon provides the cleansing effect of citric acid to help clear out the digestive syste *Oranges contain flavonoids in the peel and juice that stimulate the immune system and protects against a fungi/pests while helping to reduce cholesterol levels *Mint helps the body digest more easily and it also soothes any stomach cramps you may have. Keep in mind that the more you refill your jug, glass or bottle with the same fruits, the more diluted and less nutrient-dense the fruit becomes. So I would recommend that after 2 or 3 refills, dump it and replace with fresh cuts to make sure you get all the vitamins and minerals you need. I also wouldn’t leave the fruits in there for more than 24 hrs before changing it.

Body Brushing

Your skin is a complex system made up of nerves, glands, and cell layers that, when healthy, serves as a buffer that helps protect your body from extreme temperatures and chemicals.celuliteIt also produces antibacterial substances to protect you from infection and enables your body to produce vitamin D when exposed to the sun. Your skin even contains densely packed nerve cells that act as messengers to your brain, making your skin a crucial part of your interactions with the world around you.

Another crucial role your skin plays is supporting optimal detoxification. But if your skin is overrun with toxins or dead skin cells, it will not be able to eliminate wastes from your body efficiently.

bodybrush shoulder

This is where dry skin brushing can be invaluable, not only in brushing off dead skin cells but also in activating waste removal via your lymph nodes. Beyond this, dry skin brushing offers multiple benefits including:

1. Stimulate Your Lymphatic System

In your body, your lymphatic system is the system responsible for eliminating cellular waste products. Hundreds of miles of lymphatic tubules allow waste to be collected from your tissues and transported to your blood for elimination, a process referred to as lymphatic drainage.

When your lymphatic system is not working properly, waste and toxins can build up and make you sick. Lymphatic congestion is a major factor leading to inflammation and disease. By stimulating your lymphatic system and helping it release toxins, dry skin brushing is a powerful detoxification aid.

2. Exfoliation

Dry skin brushing removes dead dry skin, improving appearance, clearing your clogged pores, and allowing your skin to “breathe.”

3. Increase Circulation

When you dry brush your skin, it increases circulation to your skin, which encourages the elimination of metabolic waste.

4. Reduce Cellulite

Dry skin brushing may help to soften hard fat deposits below the skin while distributing fat deposits more evenly. This may help to diminish the appearance of cellulite. Dry brushing is also said to help reduce cellulite by removing toxins that may break down connective tissue, although some believe the effect is temporary.

5. Stress Relief

The act of dry brushing has been described as meditative (especially if you do it in a quiet space) and may reduce muscle tension, calm your mind, and relieve stress. Many compare it to a light whole-body massage.

6. Improve Digestion and Kidney Function

Dry skin brushing may go even deeper, helping to support your digestion and organ function.  Many naturopathic doctors use dry brushing to help with bloating because massaging the lymph nodes helps the body shed excess water and toxins. One of the immediate effects of dry brushing is smoother skin, but it can also help improve digestion, kidney function, and more.

7. It’s Invigorating

Many people become “addicted” to dry skin brushing (in a good way) because it simply feels so good. Along with glowing and tighter skin, regular dry skin brushers report feeling invigorated after a quick session.

Dry Brushing: How to Do It

body brushing

First you’ll need a high-quality dry brush. Look for one with bristles made from natural materials. They should feel stiff but not overly so. Ideally, choose a brush with a long handle so you can reach your entire back and other hard-to-reach spots.

Dry skin brushing should be done daily for best results, or even twice a day if you like. Try incorporating it into your normal daily routine, such as doing your brushing before your morning shower and then again after work (avoid doing it too close to bedtime, as it may leave you feeling energized).

When brushing, always brush toward your heart, which is best for circulation and your lymphatic system. You can brush your entire body (including the soles of your feet). Start at your feet and work your way up your legs to your arms, chest, back, and stomach. Avoid brushing your face (unless you have a special brush designed for this delicate skin), your genitals, or any areas with irritations or abrasions (including varicose veins).

The pressure you apply while brushing your skin should be firm but not painful (avoid “scrubbing”). Your skin should be pink after a session (not red or irritated) and you can brush for as long (or as little) as you’d like. An average dry brushing session may last between two and 20 minutes.

Meditationspa image

For thousands of years people have used meditation to move beyond the mind’s stress-inducing thoughts and emotional upsets into the peace and clarity of present moment awareness. The variety of meditation techniques, traditions, and technologies is nearly infinite, but the essence of meditation is singular: the cultivation of mindful awareness and expanded consciousness.

These are the ultimate precious gifts of meditation, yet people are initially drawn to meditation for many different reasons. Some begin meditating because of a doctor’s recommendation, seeking the health benefits of lowered blood pressure, stress reduction, and restful sleep. Others come to meditation seeking relief from the fearful, angry, or painful thoughts that constantly flood their mind. Still others come to meditation to find greater self-understanding, to increase their intuitive powers, or to improve their ability to concentrate.

It is accurate to say that the purpose of meditation depends on the meditator – but it is also true that anyone who meditates regularly receives profound benefits on all of these levels – physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

Here are just a few of the benefits

• Relief from stress and anxiety (meditation mitigates the effects of the “fight-or-flight” response, decreasing the production of stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline)

• Decreased blood pressure and hypertension

• Lower cholesterol levels

• More efficient oxygen use by the body

• Increased production of the anti-aging hormone DHEA

• Restful sleep

relaxNew research is also showing that meditation restores the brain. It is said  that as little as eight weeks of meditation not only help people feel calmer but also produce changes in various areas of the brain, including growth in the areas associated with memory, empathy, sense of self, and stress regulation.

DONT BE SCARED OF COLONIC HYDROTHERAPY THIS HALLOWEEN…..

Ghosts and ghouls and apparently clowns now are scary…. HOWEVER, colonic therapy shouldn’t be!!!

16 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT COLONIC HYDROTHERAPY, BUT NEVER KNEW WHO TO ASK…….And not a scary answer in sight…

The Colon suffers more abuse from modern dietary habits then any other organ.   Think of your colon as the waste management section of your body.  All of your cells and tissues, along with your liver rely upon a well functioning colon so they can cleanse your body of toxins.

Health begins in your colon! So it’s important to keep it clean.

Colonic hydrotherapy is a safe and gentle technique used for cleansing the colon but there are lot of answered questions and confusion over this age old practise…

Is It Safe

Colonic hydrotherapy/irrigation is a safe and effective way to cleanse the colon. It uses a gentle flow of purified water to loosen impacted waste.

How Big Is The Nozzle That you Insert

The tip we use at THE CLEANSE is the size of the tiny tip of a pencil!!! And only inserted about an inch. It’s easily inserted using lubricating gel. I’ve never yet had a client that hasn’t found it much easier then they anticipated!!

What About Embarrasing Noises

You may make the odd noise but believe you me, its nothing I haven’t heard before! And once you’re settled on the LIBBE system you will have the choice to be left alone, where obviously you can totally relax. A therapist will always be close by and checking in on you regularly.

Will It Hurt Me

No. It definitely doesn’t hurt. With a qualified therapist you will find your treatment will be a revitalising and pleasant experience.

Will It Smell

No, our modern, ergonomically designed systems , take away all expelled waste immediately leaving very little or no odour.

Can I Return To Work afterwards

Yes of course, we suggest you take ten – fifteen minutes after your treatment to sit quietly but after that you will feel absolutely normal. In fact some people feel immediately energised. You can return to work, drive and carry on with your day!

Can I Have A Colonic On My Period

Yes, In fact it’s a really good time for it as your body is already cleansing. You could find that the flushing through of the colon actually eases abdominal pains brought on by your menstrual cycle.

Can I Have A Colonic When I’m Pregnant

We don’t recommend colonics during pregnancy unless recommended by your doctor.

What’s The Difference Between An Enema and Colon Hydrotheapy

An enema only cleanses the rectum and the lower part of the colon. Whereas Colon hydrotherapy/irrigation cleanses the entire length of the colon – about 5-6feet!!!! It has been said that one colon treatment is equivalent to 30 enemas!! (quoted from Dr Norman Walker )

Will Anyone Know I’ve Had A Colonic

They may well do, as you will have a spring in your step!!!! Amazing skin and feel lighter and revitalised!!

Im A Man!!!! Is it OK for me

Absolutely, Lots of my clients have been men. They all enjoy the benefits just as much!

I Cant Get Burned By The Water Can I

Absolutely not! The LIBBE system is set to keep the temperature of the water to a body temperature-like warmth. The system would simply shut down should the temperature ever rise above this preset setting.

 

libbeHow Is Your System Different

The system we use at THE CLEANSE is an “open system” made by the leading Colonic manufacturers LIBBE. I have always found our clients like the tiny nozzle and that they can have a little privacy should they require it. It goes without saying a therapist is on hand at all times to reassure and assist the client. All items used are disposable and the actual unit is designed with hygiene and cleanleaness in mind.

 

tweight loss with colon cleansingWill I loose Weight

Well actually YES but don’t get too excited…. Think about it – any waste that leaves you will weigh something! Some people can have between 3-5lb of compacted waste just sitting around in the colon. You wont loose inches and it wont make you fit HOWEVER the overall “clean” feeling that you will get will make you less bloated and not so heavy which in turn often kick starts a detox or fitness program. Used in conjunction with a detox/healthy eating plan it is really affective. At THE CLEANSE we can work with you on a 3, 5 or 7 day detox programme.

Will It Improve My Skin

Absolutely as it will help to eliminate toxins, a major factor in cellulite and dull skin.  Clients often report amazing results with their skin literally glowing!  We also recommend dry body brushing when following a cleanse regime as this will really help to speed the process up.clear skin

 

 

Is It True it Can Increase Fertility

Colon cleansing, as well as increased fibre intake along with healthy food choices can be beneficial to those trying to fall pregnant. Colon cleansing rids the body of toxins and chemicals that can affect both he egg and sperm. Fat is oestrogen based and if too much is stuck in the bowel and builds up it can make getting pregnant more difficult.

What’s The Link With Concentration and Colonics

Poor diet and ineffective vitamin absorption can keep your body from getting what it needs to function. Cleansing the colon with a detox diet can be the difference between feeling alert and alive or not being able to make decisions or see things clearly. You wont be a genius if you wasn’t one already but at least you will understand that!!

Here at The Cleanse we hope that has cleared up some of the most common concerns.  However if you have more questions, do not hesitate to contact us and we can have a chat about the benefits of colon cleansing for you.
