Drink Chamomile Tea before your next Colonic

Drink Chamomile Tea before your next Colonic

There are many things that can impact the quality of your experience when having a colonic, including your diet, stress level, and whether or not you exercise (a toned body = a toned colon). However, in my estimation the biggest impediment to a productive and satisfying colonic is excessive gassiness. Everyone produces gas during the digestive process. For the most part, this gas is removed via absorption out through the walls of our intestines. Unfortunately,...

Activated charcoal is used to treat stomach pains from gas, diarrhea, or other stomach issues.

Activated charcoal is used to treat stomach pains from gas, diarrhea, or other stomach issues.

Recently a client of Inner Garden expressed concern that activated charcoal might absorb nutrients from the GI tract.

It had taken its toll on me and had slowly been depleting my ability to enjoy life to the fullest. Even doing something simple like 2 hrs of gardening one day, virtually immobilized me in pain for 5 days afterwards....

Faecal Microbiota Transplant ( Bacteriotherapy) – FMT

Faecal Microbiota Transplant ( Bacteriotherapy) – FMT

So what is this ? This is the transplant of faecal mater (the stool) and its contained bacteria from one person to another.

As you may remember from previous blogs on our website, the colon is full of helpful healthy bacteria and also in many people unhealthy bacteria strains. As you...

The intention of this blog is to support your learning about this valve, give you some self management ideas and promote not only good bowel health but also general wellbeing. I learnt about this valve in my medical and naturopathic studies but it wasn’t until I had an issue with it did I really pay attention to its role in my body and believe me when it is unhappy it will often let you know...
