Gastro and IBS Clinic
Brianan’s Gastro & IBS clinic focuses on preventing gut ailments and restoring gut heath. Referred to as the ‘second brain,’ the gut or gastro intestinal tract assists in digestion and absorption of nutrients in food, and elimination of undigested materials and toxins from the body. The gut is, therefore, the first line of defense for the body, and a vital bridge between the body’s immune system, digestive system and nervous system, carrying both internal and external bodily traumas. Changes in the nature of gut health profoundly affect one’s overall health and well-being. Major common gut related ailments include Leaky Gut Syndrome, Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) and Ulcerative Colitis, among others.
You do not need to make any special changes to your diet or lifestyle before a colon treatment, however many people choose to have colonic irrigation when embarking upon a new health regime.
As a registered, professional colon therapist, I am used to people feeling nervous, especially before a first treatment. Part of our job is to put you at ease and ensure you are comfortable having your colon irrigation.
At your first appointment I will take a full medical case history, and will explain the procedure and treatment process to you. Do not hesitate to ask me any questions.
Colon Hydrotherapy is a gentle therapy, which involves the slow introduction of warm, filtered water into the colon via the rectum. The water is introduced at a very low and carefully controlled pressure. The water, combined with gentle abdominal massage, helps to soften faecal matter and hardened deposits so that they can be expelled naturally by your colon and piped away with the waste water.
All equipment is disposable and sterile and, as such, Colonic Hydrotherapy is completely hygienic. Also rest assured that your modesty is preserved at all times. To watch Brianan talk about Colonic Irrigation please click here to view.
Brianan received her training in functional medicine in the United States. She is particularly interested in functional medicine because of the tools it provides to examine the pathways and biochemistries in the body that need supporting. “A lot of people with chronic illnesses or autoimmune issues have the diagnosis, but they need to find out why they developed that condition, “she observes. “Functional medicine, like naturopathy, looks at the drivers.”
A session with Brianan starts with a 60 minute consultation where she reviews patient medical records as well as her own intake forms that are provided online. In the first consultation, Brianan works with patients to document a timeline of the ailments along with their extensive personal medical and family history. Both practitioner and patient have the opportunity to discuss the patient’s case history, ask questions and determine any clinical testing to be done. Tests are sent to an external laboratory for results, which Brianan then interprets in a follow up visit. Laboratory tests include extensive blood and urine testing as well as additional diagnostic procedures such as imagery or stool testing to investigate markers of inflammation, digestion, hormonal functions, nutrients, food allergies and sensitivities to name a few. Genetic testing may also be used with patient consent to identify genetic predispositions to disease. Additionally, Brianan collaborates with the patient’s GP and other health care providers so as to work in a synergistic manner that is most beneficial to the patient’s health and well being.
Detox & Bodywrap
.Bioslimming uniquely offers 4 benefits in one:
• Inch loss / slimming
• Firming and toning
A Bioslimming wrap uniquely starts as a thermogenic (hot) therapy that goes on to become a “Cyro” (cold) therapy in the second stage of the process.The Bioslimming formula is unlike anything else in the marketplace at present. It combines four different products; three gels and one cream, each of which is packed full of plant extracts, pure essential oils, algae extracts, caffeine and thermo agents both hot and cold. Each of the products are formulated to contain the maximum amount of active ingredients possible and as such only small amounts of each of the products are required during a session.
Bioslimming’s thermal action is intensified through targeted massage that facilitates deeper tissue penetration, increases localised blood circulation and promotes lymphatic drainage.
In clinical trials 98% of women saw dramatic improvement of "orange peel" skin, with a reduction of cellulite in just two weeks. 100% of women observed a decrease of 1 to 4 cm around their waist.
The end result after a course of sessions is a minimized appearance of lumpy skin, improved skin texture and a reduction in circumference measurements.
