About Me

I’m a Naturopathic Practitioner that specialises in Colonic irrigation and Kinesiology at the Castle Street Clinic in Guildford.

I’ve been practicing Colon Hydrotherapy or Colonic irrigation as a member of ARCH since 2005.

I trained at the National College of Colon Hydrotherapy under Milo Siewert. Before that I spent 5 years studying at the CNM (The College of Naturopathic Medicine in London) where I graduated as a Naturopath specialising in Acupuncture.

I went on to study Systematic Kinesiology and became a member of ASK in 2016.

After a history of childhood illnesses and food intolerances, I developed chronic fatigue syndrome and ME in my early 30s. Having little success with conventional medicine, I decided to look elsewhere for methods that promoted self healing as I needed to find out what was going on.

As a Naturopath I believe that regular internal cleansing acts as your first defence against disease.


Colonic irrigation is great for making you feel more comfortable and less bloated very quickly. If you are new to them then 2-3 is the average amount to start with to help make a difference to your wellbeing. Although just one is fine. It’s entirely up to you.

Most people are nervous for the first one and this, along with dehydration can reduce the effectiveness of how much matter is released.

The following are some of the symptoms that may result from poor elimination.

  • Skin problems
  • Brain fog (difficulty concentrating)
  • Fatigue or sluggishness
  • Colds
  • Constipation or diarrhoea
  • IBS
  • Bloating
  • Lower back pain
  • Headaches

    In an ideal world we would have a bowel movement after every meal, but most of us are happy with once a day. Some people are unaware that we can still be constipated even if we are having a daily bowel movement.

    As a therapist, what do I consider the most important thing a colonic can do for you?

    It can help to regulate and maintain a normal pH in the gut. This means removing the bad bacteria and allowing the good bacteria, which is naturally made in the colon, to thrive.

    What happens when everything you eat makes you feel bloated, irritable and tired? At this stage probiotics seem to make things worse.

    What is happening?

    The bad bacteria are starting to outnumber the good bacteria.

    As this happens the gut becomes more alkaline. This is fine in other parts of the body but not the gut. The gut needs to be more acidic to help kill off parasites, bugs and unwanted microbes. The more alkaline the gut, the more chance of attracting unwanted bacteria, yeasts and molds. We literally feel rotten!

    The large intestine absorbs minerals and water. Over time, waste matter can gradually build up and stick to the walls of the intestines and become impacted in certain areas.

    This build up can eventually stop us from assimilating nutrients from the diet, making the colon heavy, adding to weight in the abdomen and placing more stress on the other organs like the liver, leading to more frequent headaches and illness.

    A congested colon may cause nutrient deficiency disease, regardless of how many supplements a person may take.

    Traditionally the colon has been a self cleaning organ. It does this by sweeping a fine layer of white fluffy mucus along the gut to collect harmful microbes and clear them away. This is to protect against inflammation.

    However, our modern lifestyle, stress, poor food choices and more than moderate alcohol consumption results in the colon producing too much mucous. This can build up and make things sticky and attractive to the wrong microbes.

    Clumps of yellow thick mucus are one of the most common things seen during a colonic, along with stool, undigested food, yeasts and some bacteria. This is what you can see.

    What you can’t see are the trillions of unwanted microbes being removed to allow the gut to resume the fermentation of good bacteria to get you back on track.

    In my opinion, regular cleansing of the colon can play an important part in restoring and maintaining intestinal and general health.
