What is colonic hydrotherapy?
Colonic hydrotherapy is a Naturopathic treatment that works to support the bodies natural processes of detoxification and elimination.
Colonic Hydrotherapy consists of slowly and gently introducing warm filtered water into the colon under low pressure via a small tube. It's purpose is to remove excess waste and gas which impair the natural peristaltic function of the colon. Through gentle encouragement the colons natural peristaltic movement and the liver is stimulated to releases bile which is one of the major routes of detoxification.
By removing excess toxic load from the colon and stimulating peristalsis you are re-educating the colon to function optimally.
Dietary and lifestyle after care supports the client to make lasting changes increasing vitality and overall well being. Initially, a series of at least three separate therapy sessions may be recommended, to achieve the maximum cleansing benefit. This helps to eliminate fecal matter, which may have been lodged in the colon for weeks, months, or even years, and to keep the client properly hydrated. Programmes of three sessions at the Cotswold Health Centre in Stroud, are recommended but single sessions can also be booked.

As a Naturopathic Nutritionist I will focus on a natural approach to a healthy diet that considers the individual as a whole, including all aspects of their lifestyle. This natural approach incorporates emotional, spiritual and physical health to create a state of well being for optimum health. A holistic approach to proper nutrition encourages education on basic nutrition to develop a holistic diet that incorporates natural and organic foods and natural holistic supplements for chronic health conditions.
I work with my clients to educate them about the benefits of good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle to achieve optimal health and vitality. There is no one diet or supplement regime that is right for everyone all of the time our bodies are unique and my approach honours an individual approach to all of my clients.
My mission is to work closely with my clients to identify and help correct the nutritional causes or deficiencies that underline their health concerns. A bespoke protocol will support the client in strengthening the immune system and aiding detoxification to fully support the body to function at its optimal level. This process does require commitment and willing to make changes but we work together at your own speed and comfort.
Nutritional consultations are offered alone or combined with a Colonic hydrotherapy session.
It is recommended to initially commit to 3 combined or single sessions to truly make lasting change that is sustainable. The aim of these sessions is to focus on lifestyle change rather than short term gain.
I also offer functional medicine diagnostic testing such as food intolerance hormone profile, adrenal stress profiles, leaky gut testing, and and other functional tests which tailor the treatment protocol for the individual client. For all of these tests I use Genova Diagnostics and Biolab Clinical Laboratories.
"I had a colonic therapy session with you in February, have dropped 40lb's in weight and feel so much better. Amazing after just one session. I have followed all of your excellent Nutritional advice. I would like to thank you for all that you have done. ”

My journey with healing and Nutrition started over ten years ago.
I have always had a fascination with the human body and health. This fascination led me to my own experimentation of treating skin and digestive problems that I was experiencing. This brought me down many paths and ultimately led me to studying a Bsc in Health Sciences, and more recently completing my training as a Nutritional Therapist at the College of Naturopathic Medicine Bristol. I have also studied Colonic Hydrotherapy at the Naturopathic School of Colonic Hydrotherapy in London.
I am continually amazed and humbled by the phenomenal healing potential of nature, and food in particular when used to maximise the natural healing potential of the body.
