Why have a Colonic....

Did you know that 80% of your immune system happens in your digestive tract?

Approximately 37000 people a year are being diagnosed with colon or bowel cancer. It is the second biggest killer in Britain.

Waste matter ie impacted faeces, dead cellular tissue and accumulated excess mucous can become a breeding ground for parasites and worms.

The purified water and abdominal massage helps to work loose and eliminate far more toxic waste than any other short term technique.

The toxic material that is broken down is removed quickly so it can no longer harm your body by being reabsorbed back into the blood stream making you feel unwell, weak and tired.

The large intestine is a smooth muscle, which over time may become sluggish as a result of a build up of waste material in the colon resulting in constipation.

In my opinion, regular colonics help remove this debris allowing it to exercise the peristaltic ‘caterpillar’ like action which helps to regulate and strengthen the tone of the colon. This helps to promote an easier evacuation in the future.

For every human cell, you have 10 times the amount of bacteria!


A build up of toxic waste matter can distort and stretch the shape of the large intestine.

Impacted materials impair the colon’s ability to assimilate minerals and vitamins.

Regular colonics can help to regulate and maintain a normal pH in the gut. Potentially harmful microbes become dangerous once they start to take up room in the gut by outnumbering beneficial bacteria.

Your body’s microbiome or gut bacteria (colonies of various microbes that reside in your gut and elsewhere in the body) is one of the primary factors in driving your genetic expression.

They turn genes on and off depending on which microbes are present.

A number of health conditions and chronic diseases have been linked to the quality of your microbiome. These include:

  • Depression
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Mental health issues
  • Autism
  • Allergies

    It is also crucial for a well functioning immune system as your primary defence against disease.

    Your personal microbiome is as unique as your fingerprints. It can be rapidly altered by diet, stress, lifestyle, exposure to toxins and antibiotics.


    The role of healthy bacteria:

  • Synthesise vitamins and minerals.
  • Digest soluable fibre to provide food for gut lining.
  • Improve digestion and absorption of nutrients by producing enzymes.
  • Metabolise environmental and internal toxins.
  • Prevent unwanted bugs from settling in the gut.
  • Stimulate immune function.
  • Produce anti cancer compounds such as n-butyrate.
  • Convert photochemicals in food into protective compounds.
  • Convert mercury into less toxic forms.
  • Neutralise charcoal foods containing aromatic hydrocarbons.
  • Neutralise aflatoxin- mould on peanuts.
  • Increase number of active immune cells.
  • Breakdown bacteria toxins.
  • Prevent invaders from sticking to gut lining.
