The Hering Clinic, colonics and my health in crisis!
After months of hard training and teaching, exposure to emotional stress and poor sleep my health was beginning to suffer. I felt drained, lethargic and well if I am honest…..I felt really depressed. It was like someone had taken out my batteries. I was constantly bloated and struggled to control my appetite and I didn’t know how I could continue teaching or working. Well someone must have been looking over me because out of the blue The Hering Clinic contacted me about collaborating and doing some joint work together.
Denise (who is not only a fully qualified Colon Hydrotherapist (Trained by the National College of Colon Hydrotherapy) but a member of the Association and Register of Colon Hydrotherapists (ARCH) and is also a Nutritional Therapist; a graduate of the London based College of Complementary and Natural Medicine and a member of the British Association of Nutritional Therapists (BANT)) recommended I try a full treatment for myself before deciding to collaborate. I had always wanted to try a treatment, but was apprehensive about having a ‘pipe’ in my behind!!! But as soon as I met Denise and Nicola I felt completely in safe hands. Their passion for their trade was obvious. They knew they shizzle! After a detailed consultation about my current health and history treatment began! And boy did it begin………
Now having worked in the health and fitness industry for nearly 10 years and being a huge advocate of ‘healthy eating’, you could be forgiven for asking why I would need one! I had always suffered with a sluggish bowel since I was a child but never had been able to get to the bottom of it.
The typical Western diet is pretty poor and many of us subject our gut to a barrage of processed and refined foods, pesticides and genetically modified products etc over our lifetime, which can over-tax the digestive system. For people under chronic stress, as I had been, my gut was working even harder. Despite my best efforts I was taking in more toxins than I could eliminate and my colon can become impacted with faeces, dead cellular tissue and accumulated mucous which was possibly providing a breeding ground for worms, fungus and parasites. The theory, albeit unproven by science, is that toxicity sets in and the resulting poisons can circulate the blood stream causing all sorts of problems from tiredness to extreme disease. Impacted materials may also impair the colon’s ability to work properly and constipation can result. Indeed, our testimonials support the theory that a colonic can help gently remove these toxins enabling the main organs of elimination to work more efficiently, making you feel much better.
Most of us are walking around in a state of toxic overload and it is The Hering Clinic’s belief that the majority of people in Britain who have been raised on a typical western diet would benefit from colon hydrotherapy.
My first treatment had revealed the full horror that lurked inside my gut. Denise described my colonic as ‘epic’ and top of the leader board! !! Well at least I am top at something! However, all joking aside, Denise recommended further treatment immediately! So I was booked in for the following week. Nothing could have prepared me for how I felt in the days after my first treatment. If I felt bad before I felt even worse. But this can be normal for someone who’s health is in crisis. This was my body’s way of saying ‘HELP! I am in crisis!’ and I needed to let it heal. I rested up, I took a course of pro-biotics and I dug out my juicer.
Over the course of the next 4 weeks I had repeated colonic treatments. After my fourth treatment we could really start to see a difference and I left the clinic feeling amazing! What’s more since treatment my gut and my energy levels have been fantastic and I will now make sure I have an ‘MOT’ at least twice a year. For anyone embarking on a new healthy way of living this can be a terrific motivation to get started. You will see for yourself the current state of your gut and get some terrific, tailored advice and guidance on what to do after to reap the benefits from your colonic and new health lifestyle.
