Detoxification through Colon Hydrotherapy: with the Brisbane Holistic Health Centre!

Colon Hydrotherapy is an important part of detoxification. Eating processed food and over consumption of meat and dairy products over time may lead to the build up of toxins. Faecal matter containing toxins and bacteria may have putrefied and set hard, disrupting bowel function and in effect slowly poisoning the body. Compared to an enema, Colon Hydrotherapy is much more effective, since cleansing extends beyond the natural expulsion area.

With the help of modern Colon Hydrotherapy equipment, ultraviolet water filtration spring-cleans the colon and the rest of the large intestine, releases toxins, empowers the immune system, improves digestion, controls weight, reduces cellulite, improves skin condition and energizes.

Conditions treated: Colon hydrotherapy is a treatment of choice in constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, candida and yeast infections, allergies, skin disorders, bad body odor, gout, arthritis, chronic fatigue and gastritis.

Contraindications: Cardiac problems, over obesity, kidney problems, bleeding piles, bowel cancer, bowel surgery and pregnancy.

Procedure: A patient lies on his/her back and gentle insertion of the rectal tube is accomplished. Filling and flushing of water into and out of the colon is done which lasts approximately 30-45 minutes. It is not painful in anyway. The patient, with a specially designed machine, can view waste material going out of the body. A gentle massage is given on the abdomen to enhance the process. When colon cleansing is completed, gentle withdrawal of rectal tube is performed. The patient proceeds to the adjoining toilet and completes emptying the water, washes and changes, ready to start their working day.

Initially it is recommended to have six to eight treatments once a week or once fortnightly and with a follow up treatment of 3 times a year. The frequency of treatments will be determined by the physician based on the individuals needs.

Experience what over 2800 people found to be the most: significant addition to their health regime*

Network Spinal Analysis or Network Care is a Chiropractic technique that involves a series of precise, gentle touches to specific areas of the spine to release tension stored in the body caused by physical, mental, and emotional stress.

In a study conducted with over 2800 participants, Network Care was found to make incredible improvements to a person's quality of life.

R.H. Blanks, Ph.D from the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology at the University of California, Irvine stated: "Network Care has a direct effect on client self-reported wellness which is twice that expected from healthy lifestyle practices (i.e. exercise, risk avoidance, optimal food choices). Network Care also has a major indirect effect on wellness by promoting healthy life-style choices."

Even Anthony Robbins the American super coach receives regular Network Care and states "I am stronger, more inspired, creative and healthy because of this work. It has personally and professionally helped me to maximize my ability to contribute to others."

In addition to Network Care, the practitioners at Brisbane Network Chiropractic also offer pre-and post natal care. We utilize the Webster technique ( which helps with breech turning and optimal foetal positioning. It also ensures a more comfortable pregnancy and an easier, faster and safer birth experience for both mother and baby.

Lemon Myrtle's Magic Needs to be breathed in to be Believed: Check out this all Australian Oil!

Lemon myrtle's magic needs to be breathed in to be believed. Described as more lemony than lemon, it hints enticingly of refreshing citrus and lemongrass. It not only smells divine, it packs a bioactive clout and scientific tests show lemon myrtle to be a potent anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral more powerful than tea tree oil. It is one of the 'new' Australian oils being explored for its ability to combat even the antibiotic resistant micro-organisms showing up today.

The essential oil of lemon myrtle is wonderfully relaxing, uplifting and soothing. It works through the central nervous system to calm and soothe. Perfect for lifting the blues, enhancing the meditation room or creating a serene atmosphere!

Diffused in the air, it can reduce the symptoms of colds, flus and coughs. It is known to assist with acne, eczema, psoriasis and other skin conditions (in very diluted form), and has good anti-inflammatory benefits. Due to its high citral content, only apply diluted to skin.

Lemon myrtle has a high 95% citral content compared to lemon's 3-10%. Citral is the main ingredient that gives you that lemony scent! Lemon myrtle smells clear and clean and indescribably refreshing. Just a spritz into the air will give you a lovely zingy clean scent which kills any airborne germs during the cold season, or refreshes enclosed spaces in any season. Best of all, lemon myrtle just smells "mmmmmhhhhh..."! Don't be surprised at the "What's that nice smell?" questions you'll get!

Lemon Myrtle Essentials Certified Organic body care product range contains pure, organic lemon myrtle essential oil and other life and wellbeing enhancing ingredients with a strong emphasis on high quality, pure, organic, unrefined plant products with bioactive properties. They are designed to appeal to the senses yet provide practical benefits in your life. For great specials, visit or ring Australia +61 3 5476 4100 !
