Activities For All
It is very important that we maintain regular exercise to promote a healthly lifestyle and good functioning bowel movements. when we exercise we are strengthening peristaltic muscle, these are the small rings of muscle that are situated along the length of the colon, these muscles are the ones that push food through your system and regular exercise will help them to stay strong and aid in giving you more regular complete daily bowel movements.
If you are unfortunate to have inherited lazy bowels then a treatment could really benefit you, this not only will help eliminate solid empacted waste that builds up on your colon wall but it will re shape and tone your colon and encourage peristalsis (muscle action).
It is important to maintain a balanced diet, when I say balanced I mean you should be eating plenty of fresh foods made from scratch that you have prepared, that way you will know exactly what you are putting into your body.
Fresh fruit and vegetables baked or steamed, you should be eating plenty of chicken turkey or white meats as they are easier to digest than red meats, red meat should only be eaten once a week.
Try to include lots of pulses, lentils they are very high in protein but with little or no fat.If you do fry anything please ensure that you use olive oil or butter as other oils tend to oxidize when they reach a certain temperature. Avoid takeaways and processed foods and do not be fooled by labels “healthy options” or “no added sugar”. Processed meals are packed with toxins that your body does not require, such as artificial flavourings, colourings and preservatives.
Another substance to avoid is artificial sweeteners- these labelled as Aspartame, many of my clients have changed from using this product and have discovered that the bloating they had has minimized. If you need a sweet fix then eat fresh fruit as the sugars you are getting are natural sugars known as fructose, or use a little bit of honey. Refined sugars are not a good idea.
Eat plenty of whole grains but avoid processed bread this can be a cause of bloating, if you want to replace it with something different then wholemeal pita breads are better as they contain no or little yeast or tortilla wraps but soar dough or rye bread is okay.
Support & Services
Whilst I make every effort to fit clients in at their convenience it is important that clients turn up at the appointed time of their appointment to ensure the smooth running of the clinic. I would also appreciate 24 hours notice for cancellations either via a phone call or text to avoid cancellation charges applying.
I always give notice in advance on my website of times when appointments will not be available either due to other commitments, training , holidays etc, but I am always at the end of a the phone and endeavour to contact clients at my earliest opportunity.
