'Clearing out all that clutter'
FOR many people the thought of undergoing colonic hydrotherapy could evoke feelings of dread.
But Susan underwent a session as part of her detox, and although she was nervous beforehand, she found the treatment so beneficial that she's even booked in for a second appointment.
The process involves injecting water, sometimes mixed with herbs or with other liquids, into the colon using special equipment.
According to colon hydrotherapist Deborah Browne, the benefits are plentiful and the treatment can be so relaxing that some of her clients even go to sleep during the procedure.

"A first session typically consists of a thorough consultation regarding diet, bowel movements and general lifestyle," says Deborah, "and the treatment lasts between 35 and 45 minutes, which is followed by another discussion.
"It's a strengthening process," she explains, "because it boosts the immune system by getting rid of all the waste. If that waste doesn't come out it sits in the body and compromises it, so a lot of people's systems are toxic.
"You find most people get a boost of energy because they've cleared their system out, there's a reduction in bloating and they sleep much better.
"It increases their bowel mobility and metabolism too.
"Having a healthy bowel will help keep you healthy all over."
A first session of colonic hydrotherapy with Deborah costs £65. For more information contact Beauty Within.
