How Healthy is Your Colon:By Gabrielle Earnshaw!

The body loves a good spring clean from time to time to encourage it to detox and eliminate. This leaves it ready to be strengthened by healthy, appropriate foods, exercise and nutritional supplements. Colonic Hydrotherapy is a simple, gentle way to do this.

Constipation is one of the major reasons people seek helpful treatments. The word constipation is derived from the latin word "constipatus" which means, "to press together", "to pack", "to cram". In essence being constipated means that the accumulation of faeces in the colon has become so packed that a proper daily evacuation becomes difficult or incomplete. A state of constipation may also exist, even though bowel movements may seem to be "normal", due to a build up of matter along the passageways of the colon. The average colon contains the waste of about 10-14 meals at any one time. In fact it is not unusual for people to have a build up of a minimum of 5 kilos of rotting matter in their bowel. Imagine that?

Colon Hydrotherapy helps break the cycle of overload. It helps turn the situation around by increasing transit time, improving bowel tone and vitality and helps hydrate the body. This hydration is very important the colonic treatment is actually an internal bath, gently cleaning and detoxing from the inside.

After a series of colonics many people say they feel lighter, more alive, their skin is clearer and the feeling of "fullness" or "bloatedness" is gone.

"When you provide the body with the right conditions, it will heal itself".

Initial treatment including consultation $80!

Healthy Inspirations:Healthy Weight Loss!

When it comes to losing weight, did you know that size doesn't matter….

You don't have to join the worlds biggest weight loss or fitness chains to lose weight effectively. Sometimes it is the smaller, boutique weight loss brands that will deliver more effective & affordable weight loss in a healthy commonsense fashion.

In fact there is a successful and unique weight loss program that is quietly gaining momentum in Australia. Healthy weight loss is now achievable via a program that is female friendly, utilizing up to date weight management and exercise research, and putting this together in an affordable, systemized fashion all under one roof.

Four essential components to healthy, long term and successful weight loss include:-

Nutritional Program
Did you know that 80% of successful weight loss is learning how to eat in a healthy way that sustains an energy deficit? At Healthy Inspirations, members learn how to select and eat foods that they buy from the supermarket, and this is put into dietician supported eating plans that are sensible, filling and tasty. The bonus is the whole family benefits and everyone can now incorporate this eating plan into their lifestyle and it can be maintained for ever.

One-on-One Coaching
The National Health & Medical Research Council (NHMRC) state that people wanting to lose weight, need regular contact and support from health professionals so at Healthy Inspirations, members meet with our trained Lifestyle Consultants up to three times per week during the Healthy Weight Loss stage. These quick but crucial visits help the member stay focused, while ensuring that they are accountable for their eating and exercise habits.

Simple to follow Resistance Based Exercise Circuit
Healthy Inspirations incorporates a 30 minute fitness circuit into the healthy weight loss and exercise program. This Australian made equipment is fully adjustable and allows the members to exercise in an easy, non-intimidating circuit which is monitored and adjusted to suit the members needs. Outcomes include improved weight management, improved muscle tone, improved confidence and the development of new friends. All of this is done in a friendly, relaxed and fun environment.

Relaxation Therapy

Although less recognized, weight gain and successful weight loss is influenced by life stresses and pressures. Many women would appreciate that a feeling of hunger can be triggered by stress induced hormonal imbalances. So, at Healthy Inspirations members can enjoy a weekly relaxation session in a luxurious Shiatsu massage chair. Located in a private room, the member can lie back and relax whilst remaining fully clothed and having no other staff involved.

Healthy Inspirations has been in Australia for almost 5 years and now has 22 sites around the country. To find out where these boutique healthy weight loss centres are you can go to or ringing support office on 07 3378 6111. If you want effective, long term, healthy weight loss that is for life, then you should give Healthy Inspirations a call. Remember when it comes to losing weight, size doesn't always matter!

About indigoHouse
The opening of indigoHouse in November 2000 was the culmination of several years of dreaming and planning by sister and brother Alison and David Lees.

They wanted to create a welcoming inner city place of healing and rejuvenation where a variety of counsellors and natural health practitioners could practice alongside each other.

While Alison has now moved on to other life challenges, indigoHouse owes much to her early vision and hard work.

The indigoHouse building was originally a workers cottage built in the 1920's. Extensive renovations in 1999- saw the downstairs used as a real estate office just prior to the commencement of indigoHouse.

The Name

indigo is known as a colour which represents healing and transformation.

House (rather than alternatives like centre), was chosen to capture the warmth, acceptance and informality of the clinic.

indigoHouse is written as all one word with a small i and a capital and bold H to reflect our logo which uses the H to form a house.

The Directors
David Lees is the business owner and one of the three Directors. He is a social worker who for several years has run his own human services training and consulting business.

David Casteleijn is a Naturopath & Herbalist who has been with indigoHouse since it first opened. He also lectures at the Australian College of Natural Medicine and is currently completing Masters studies in Herbal Medicine through the University of New England.

Michelle McClintock is a Psychologist and Counsellor who has also been with indigoHouse since it first opened. Michelle is currently completing a Diploma in Process Orientated Psychology, and facilitates workshops around Brisbane.

Finding Health Close to Home: A Call for Localism By Charles Eisenstein

As small local businesses are replaced by national brands, communities become colonies where people hardly know each other and where neighbors are united not by social and economic ties, but by proximity only. Television and car culture contribute to the breakdown of community: no longer do we sit on the front stoop and watch people walking to the corner store, or chat at the baseball diamond and the post office. Instead we live our lives indoors, in private, except when we drive out of the neighborhood to shop, work, or socialize with carefully selected friends. Alarmed by these trends, social activists have taken up the cause of localism and the rebuilding of community. What many of us do not realize, however, is that localism is not just a worthy social cause, but an important health issue as well. (more…)

Laughter is the best medicine!

A little old lady goes into a shop and explains to the assistant that she wants some wool to knit a coat for her dog. " how much do you want?" asks the assistant. "I don't know says the little old lady". Why don't you bring your dog in and then we can measure him"? suggests the assistant

"Oh no I couldn't do that," says the old lady. It's meant to be a surprise for his birthday."
