March - White rabbits, March Hares, the spring equinox and CLEANSE! Yes it’s that time of year again when we all come out of hibernation and start to think about spending more time outdoors, shake the mothballs from our spring/summer wardrobe and generally begin to feel more cheerful and motivated. February has been quite mild but was still too cold for me to brave a cleanse - I’m definitely booked in for March. I’m looking forward to my colonic but I’m not looking forward to giving up my one-a-day coffee. I make myself laugh because a few days before my colonic I tend to eat more of what I shouldn’t be eating, since I know I’m going to have it all sucked out of me - WRONG I know, but it’s what I do and it works for me! I’m particularly proud of the fact that I did dry January but it’s cutting out the sweeter things in life which is going to be difficult. Hopefully we are all now coming to terms with the fact that sugar is a killer – watch the Ty Bollinger DVDs which talk about the truth about cancer – it will certainly motivate you to give up sugar, well, for a few weeks anyway. Once you’ve run out of steam and find yourself eating desert, watch them again! You can view the first 2 for free here: https://go.thetruthaboutcancer.com/ March is a busy month for us on the cleanse front so book while you still can!

Here we are again in the first month of another New Year - roll on spring! We have been rather lucky with the weather so far, unless you like the chaos that the snow seems to bring. December was the month where many of us succumbed to the various bugs flying around. I and many others, it seems, suffered with the mother of all colds which my partner keeps referring to as bird flu because I keep telling him it has definitely hit women harder than it has hit the guys! Unfortunately a few of us are still dealing with the aftermath of chesty coughs and runny noses. If you can't seem to shake off the tiring remnants of it then try vitamin C and Zinc or Sambucol Immuno Forte which contains immune boosting Elderberry juice - the old ways are always the best. When you feel better then consider a colonic for a shot of cleansing to help your digestive system deal with all the heavy carbohydrates which we naturally consume at this time of the year, hopefully in the form of warming soups and stews accompanied by the minimal amount of the dreaded bread. If you do find that you have over-indulged then hopefully we will see you soon!

The dark nights have settled in and we are waking up to the sound of rain lashing against the windows. Summer feels like it never happened – actually it didn’t really, did it? Many of us suffer from Seasonal Affective disorder (SAD) at this time of the year so it is important that you keep your levels of vitamin D up and supplementation is a good way of doing this if you can’t or won’t go outdoors! On a brighter note we can look forward to rosy cheeks, warming stews, mulled wine and delicious seasonal crumbles. Why not try using gluten free grains as the topping for a change? I use millet which tastes a little gritty but you soon get used to it, especially when it’s on top of organic pears, blackberries and whole pieces of ginger! I think at this time of the year it is really important to keep the bowels functioning optimally in anticipation of the heavier foods we consume. Many of us tend to eat more carbohydrates in the form of grains rather than fruits and vegetables as the temperature drops, unfortunately these foods can be very cloying in the gut and can backfire creating a backlog, in which case who do you call? We look forward to hearing from you!

Sizzling September? Not quite but there is still time. My partner’s birthday is at the end of September and historically, we have always been blessed with beautiful weather so I am hoping that this year is no exception! September is an important month where cleansing is concerned as we have the second equinox of the year on Wednesday, 23 September. This is known as the autumnal equinox where day and night are equal but thereafter the days grow shorter and the nights grow longer – yes folks, it’s the official end of summer and time for a colonic! Many people fall ill around this time of the year when the immune system has to begin adjusting to a change in temperature and also to a change in the amount of natural light. Less natural light means less vitamin D which we all know is an essential immune booster. All the old naturopaths knew that it was particularly important to start preparing the body at this time of the year in order to be able to cope with the colder months when we are even more susceptible to illness. Having a colonic and cleaning your insides is a good way to kick off that preparation, ridding the body of old waste which allows for better absorption of nutrients. Just because you poop once a day doesn’t mean to say that you wouldn’t benefit from a colonic. The average amount of waste we see on a regular basis (no pun intended) is around 11 meals and this is from the average person. Don’t take our word for it, we have a mirror to prove it so you can see for your self – no s**t! We look forward to seeing you soon.

Oh dear, August has been rather a let-down so far where the weather is concerned. When I was a kid I have fond memories of the school summer holidays where the days were filled with endless sunshine allowing me to spend most of my time playing out-doors. Perhaps this is just a romanticised view but I am sure we used to get better summers in the 70’s than we do now! Oh well, no point in mourning what was, I am British and so just have to weather the storm! On a brighter note, the clinic has moved from Stony Stratford to Wolverton and is just as beautiful as it ever was. August is historically a quiet time of the year for us as everyone takes time off for their stint in the sun – hopefully travelling further afield to sunnier climes. On the other hand September should be warmer, hopefully, as August won’t take much beating at this rate. For us, the appointments will start to come in thick and fast so if you are looking for a detox after your holidays, please try and book in as soon as possible. A favourite saying of my Dad’s was ‘The sun shines out of his backside.’ when referring to someone who could do no wrong. Bearing this in mind, as colon hydrotherapists this may be the only sunshine we get to see this August, so if you have been told the sun shines out of your backside, go on, book in and make our day!

Summer is now in full swing and I am sure we are all making the most of it. With the holiday season upon us, there is not a better time to cleanse than this time of the year. With a plethora of summer fruits and vegetables on offer, along with the warmer weather, a few days living on meatless salads and vegetable juices would do us all the world of good. Treat yourself to a colonic to kick start a cleaner lifestyle and you should feel as good on the inside as you look on the outside!

May is here at last and the weather is warming, albeit slowly! The blossoms are beautiful and life is so much better when the sun shines, which moves me nicely on to the subject of where the sun doesn't shine, well for most of us anyway! It really is time to give your body an over haul, both inside and out and what better way to kick off a new healthy start than to have a colonic. I am still booking up incredibly quickly so if you would like to be the proud owner of a clean colon this month, then please book in as soon as you can. Enjoy the blossom and embrace the sun - happy May time everyone! Booking Update: Due to cancellations, I now have 2 appointments left for both Saturday, 23 May and Saturday 30 May.

I love this time of the year when the warmth from the sunshine sends everything into a spring frenzy. The blossoms on the trees are absolutely delightful and bear promises of all good things to come, in particular, cherries - my favourite fruit - hopefully there will be a better crop than last year on our tree! Cherries are very cleansing which brings me nicely to the next subject of colonics, as Brian Clement says, who runs the renowned Hippocrates Health Institute and is a world leader in detoxification 'Periodically cleansing the large intestine of compacted waste also contributes to cleaning the body of toxins. Colon irrigation, whether done by a professionally trained colon hydrotherapist or performed in your own at home (enema), can boost your energy levels.' If you are thinking of having in a colonic then please try and book a couple of weeks in advance because we are incredibly busy at the moment, that way you will have more chance of getting the date and time you would like. In the meantime, here is wishing you all a happy, healthy spring-time!

I am sure we all get to this time of the year and begin to see the spring sunlight at the end of the winter tunnel. I'm always glad I've made it through yet another January and February and can look forward to sunnier, warmer days ahead. It's the time for us all to emerge from our pits, stretch, yawn and embrace the pending warmth! Time to think about cleansing mind, body and soul and an easy way to do this is to treat yourself to a colonic! Colonics are brilliant and show tangible results – I have a guest-book full of testimonials to back this up and I also have many clients who have been referred to us by Doctors. On the other hand I have many clients who have been told by Doctors that colonics are dangerous but are so fed up of the laxatives that these GPs peddle that they have come to the clinic out of sheer desperation. Since it is almost spring and always an excellent time to detox, I would like to give my mind a little airing on this subject by addressing a couple of the myths that some Doctors seem so fond of prescribing to patients who dare to show an interest in colonic hydrotherapy.

It seems January was quite mild mannered in comparison to the cold-snap we have recently endured in February. Spring is not quite here yet so keep yourselves warm with delicious stews and soups which will nourish both you and your gut. I've been having warm soups for breakfast rather than cold juices. I make more than enough the night before and then just warm up for breakfast - you can't get quicker than that. I think home-made soups are so much more nutritious than cereal, especially if you cram the soups with lots of vegetables and lentils. Pop an egg on top for extra protein. You should find a hearty soup for breakfast will fill you up all the way until lunch-time and give your digestion a rest at the same time!

Yes! We are half way through January and it feels like a milestone. Spring is almost on the horizon, as the days grow just that tiny bit longer. January has been windy in more ways than one, all the heavy food we are eating, to keep us warm if nothing else, is creating havoc with our bowels. Have you noticed more wind just lately? If so a colonic may be just what you need. Heavy foods result in heavy stools and these can sit fermenting in the bowel, creating vast amounts of gas. Cleanse the colon of this back-log and alleviate the gas, while at the same time feeling lighter, brighter and much better equipped to face the remainder of January!

Merry Christmas to everyone - I hope we all have a lovely time! I think I am looking forward to a couple of weeks at home more than anything else. The clinic is closed on Christmas Eve and will re-open again on Tuesday, 6 January. I have booked my colonic for the first week back to get me on track again as I know I am going to fall off it over the Christmas period! A colonic helps to clear you mentally as well as physically. Once you see the amount of rubbish you are holding, you certainly don't feel inclined to put any more in for a while!

The weather is all over the place at the moment and so are the bugs! After completing a 5 day juice retreat in Portugal, which was wonderful, except for the flies, I came back to a freezing cold England which was not so wonderful. The flies in Portugal where down to the freak weather that has been happening but at least the flies could be seen and avoided. There are many bugs flying around England at the moment which cannot be seen but can still be avoided! The common cold is really living up to its name as it seems to be everywhere but it is so easy to protect yourself against it. Read on to learn how to protect yourself . . .

September has left us with the most beautiful colours but they come at a price - the cold! Personally, I cannot stand the cold and this is not my favourite time of year, despite its beauty. This is the time when I start taking extra vitamin D because I am getting nowhere near the levels of sunshine and vitamin D I was getting a few weeks ago. I suggest you do the same as many of us are short of it - get your levels checked at the Dr's as it's a free.

It's summer holiday time at last. If you are travelling further afield to sunny climes, then you might be wise to take some probiotics with you, especially if you are of a delicate constitution. Egypt is still top of the list when it comes to picking up tummy bugs. I see many clients who book in for colonics, having recently visited Egypt but other countries are not exempt. Spain and Greece are also countries where people can have problems - I saw someone only this morning who had visited Spain and had come back with a runny tummy! We are not used to some of the foreign bacteria found in food in other countries, which is why they can run riot in our intestines but won't have any affect on the people who are native to that country. A colonic is always a good idea before and after a holiday, but if you have to choose, then have one afterwards. With regard to probiotics, there are a few brands that I use when on holiday - Candea by Protextin, Travel Guard by Biocare or Optibac Travelling Abroad. I may chop and change but I always ensure I take some form of probiotic on holiday!

It is fast approaching the summer solstice when we have the longest day of the year. This is a great time to have a colonic and since many of my customers know this, I am booking up fast! Saturdays are always popular, as are our late night Thursdays but during the week there is more flexibility. If you are looking to book on either a Saturday or a Thursday evening, then please do this as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. On that note, a happy and healthy summer solstice to you all!

We bloat, not just because of the foods we eat (think wheat, yeast and sugar for example, which make bread rise and beer gassy) but also because of the combination of the foods and the fact that many of us have compromised gut bacteria. Gut bacteria ferment the foods we eat and depending on the substrate we provide for them, will dictate what kind of gut bacteria we harbour. The biggest myth surrounding colonics is that it will wipe out the good bacteria - absolute nonsense! Unless your diet has been exemplary, which means living on seasonal, unprocessed foods, and you have never taken medication (particularly anti-biotics) or drunk alcohol then you are going to be more inclined to wash out the bad bacteria, which create a lot more gas. I know we are low on the good stuff because I see the evidence all the time in stool samples! Having a colonic will give you a flatter tummy, as it cleanses the colon of poor substrate along with the accompanying bad bacteria. If you then replenish with good bacteria afterwards and provide these good bacteria with a decent food source, they will flourish and so will your flat tummy, for as long as you can keep up the good practice!

I have just spent an idyllic 7 days in sunny Spain at La Crisalida retreat which has been absolutely wonderful. Here I practised yoga on a sunny roof terrace overlooking the mountains and the sea, I drank vegetable juices that were prepared for me, I had early morning walks on the beach and meditation classes in the evening – sheer bliss. Now it’s time for another colonic – it would be rude not to after all the juices! I will admit I am not relishing the thought (I always say to my clients that I would much rather have my nails done but you can’t beat a colonic to make you feel so much better afterwards, both physically and mentally!) It’s spring and time to leave the colder climate behind, along with all the dense foods and move forward to lighter fare, lighter nights and lighter bowel movements! Treat yourself to a colonic which will help prepare your body for spring by ridding your colon of the old rubbish to make way for the new!

The clinic will be closed from Tuesday, 18 March and re-open on Tuesday, 25 March. I am going away to a retreat in Spain where I will be living on juices for 5 days and doing lots of yoga, rebounding and meditation along with barefoot walks on the beach so I can also get some earthing in! I will be having 2 colonics, one before I start and one when I finish with some enemas in-between. Every month is a good time to cleanse but March in particular, as we all come out of hibernation. You can leave a voice-mail or email and I will get back to you on my return. I apologise for the inconvenience but sometimes you really do just have to practise what you preach!

We are fast approaching the March equinox and as yet, no snow, just high winds and flooding to contend with, which is easier said than done if you live somewhere like Somerset. As the equinox approaches, hopefully we will be able to eventually put these disasters behind us and move onto warmer, sunnier climes. The same applies to our bodies, as we move on from the denser foods of winter to the lighter foods of spring so what better time to cleanse? Denser foods tend to be held for longer in the body and indeed, winter colonics are in a league of their own - it is not unusual to see around 11 meals worth of poo pass down the tube at this time of the year. Time to let go and let rip so be kind to your colon and treat yourself – this is the perfect time of year to do it.

To celebrate the launch of our new juice cleanses I treated myself to a power breakfast this morning - a green juice made from lettuce, celery, watercress, cucumber and lemon with a drizzle of olive oil and a dash of cayenne. I would much rather have a green juice rushing through my pipes than a sticky, gloopy bowl of porridge.

Here at The Hering Clinic we love chocolate, just like most ladies, but the good stuff is expensive and still full of sugar, whatever the shape or form. We love Booja Booja the best because they use coconut oil which gives them the most delicious melt-in-the-mouth texture and the different flavours are all heavenly, it's always difficult to choose.

The anti-colonics study was carried out at Georgetown University by Dr Ranit Mishori.

Before 11.00 am, most days of the week I have 2 green drinks which I make using my Green Star Juicer. I use a base of celery and cucumber and then add whatever is available in the garden or my seasonal veg box. I use ginger and lemon or lime to flavour which are exceptions to my rule of eating seasonal foods from this country. These are the only fruits I juice because they are cleansing and don’t mess around with my blood sugar.

I have just returned from a 2 week holiday in France, which was glorious. I have to admit that I did drink rather a lot of red wine, albeit organic and I also ate a lot of white bread, fresh from the bakers, which was, unfortunately (to the detriment of my digestive system), a stones throw down the road!

Researchers at the University of Granada have found that goat milk has nutritional characteristic beneficial to health. They have determined that goat milk has many nutrients that make it similar to human milk. The regular consumption of goat milk by individuals with iron deficiency anaemia improve their recovery, since it enhances the nutritional use of iron and enhance the regeneration of haemoglobin: this means that this type of milk minimizes calcium and iron interactions.

Our body’s large intestine is the main channel for eliminating solid waste but after years of chemical exposure and having to process poor quality food, the colon weakens and the accumulation of waste along the colon’s walls gradually attracts the wrong type of bacteria that love to feed off stagnant waste. This forms an unhealthy colon and increases symptoms of physical toxicity.

In 1993 BBC Horizon televised 'The Assault on the Male' publicising research that implied a possible 50% decline in human sperm count and a doubling of baby boys born with reproductive abnormalities including undescended testes and hypospadias (an abnormality of the urethra and penis that is present at birth and can cause problems with passing urine and also with erections). They also reported a trebling of testicular cancer rate.
