I talk a lot about fitness (obviously) but I strongly want to also emphasize healthy living. As a personal trainer I want to show people that we are not superficial. Looks is certainly not my main priority- HEALTH and happiness are. I want to be healthy and happy and I want my clients, readers and anyone I encounter to be healthy and happy. After all…we only have one life, might as well try and make it great.
Part of being healthy and happy is not simply eating well and exercising- Being healthy is a wholesome approach- your mind and your body. So as a personal trainer, I can work on the inside and the outside. I can help people sculpt their body from the outside and ensure they are eating well to maintain healthy and improve the body composition. But when it comes to cleaning up the hard yards we’ve just put in, I’ll leave it to the experts. although, most the fresh food and complete protein we are eating,eventually comes out of our system, some does NOT. So what happens to it? It stays in your body- in specifically your gut. That’s not nice to think about.
Luckily I have found the best solution for cleaning out what could remain: it’s called colonic irrigation hydrotherapy. Even just thinking about cleaning and flushing your system out sounds relieving- BUT the procedure sounds daunting. To put it very simply, a small plastic tube pushes water through your anus into your gut and it cleans what may have been left. The best part- you get to watch what comes out and be amazed…and grossed out.
Although I was a bit nervous at the start ( thinking about all sorts of gross things) the benefits far outweighed the negatives. I went to a clinic called Inner Cleaning Health Clinic in Berwick, Melbourne. I had a 1 hour trip by train to get there so I had plenty of time to get nervous; plus I was hungry as I had to fast for 2 hours. As soon as I walked in the door, the nurse greeted me kindly and asked me to fill in a consent form. As I was doing this, another patient received what looked like champagne and vodka. I thought, I WANT DRINKS. Straight away, I loved this place! It was tidy and extremely clean. When it was my turn, I sat down with Andrea in the room where the therapy would take place and she began to explain exactly how it works, how it benefits me, etc. She is the nicest nurse I have ever met! Her passion and customer care was astonishing- I wanted to stay at this clinic and just hang out with her- she made me feel special and happy- the therapy hadn’t even begun.
Now for the nitty gritty stuff- Im not going to explain in detail how the therapy went but I will say that I was surprised I got given clear instructions from the lovely nurse and was left to it. Everything was within my reach, including a bell in case I wanted to call the nurse over for any reason. The lights in the room were turned down and I was left to it. It was a professional and very comfortable environment. I highly recommend it: why? I instantly got a flat tummy but most importantly I got given the drinks which turned out to be nutrients, vitamins, electrolytes and pro-biotics which I may have lost during the therapy. So not alcoholic but still good. I feel amazing, like a rock has been lifted off me and I feel lighter and not bloated! Greatness all around.
Here is the link to the clinic, if you are in Melbourne, I don’t care where you live, this is the clinic to go to for this therapy, I strongly recommend it: www.innercleansingclinics.com.au
So, not only does this make you feel amazing, it also helps detox the body and give your nice skin, hair, etc. Plus, if you’re bloated, this solves it- temporarily but the rest is up to you- make sure your drink 2-3L of water a day to detox your body everyday.
All the best guys!
