Our emotions arise as part of our human response to life experiences. How we respond to life can also have a direct cause and effect relationship with the onset and progression of physical symptoms. Understanding how this mind-body connection works and applying new effective tools for releasing emotions can often be the key to rapid healing.
An enema is a simple flush out of the lowest part of the colon, the rectum and descending colon with water. Enemas can beÂ self adminstered and kits which can be obtained from wholistic health specialists online, are inexpensive allowing the healthy practice of maintaining inner hygeine and colon cleansing to be carried out at home, or by taking your kit with you, as you travel. Enemas are used as an option for cleansing the colon on healing and detox retreats where there is no colon irrigation system installed.
The colon is the bodyâ€™s largest eliminative channel, but as a result of neglect and abuse it can become blocked or slow down.Â Congested and toxicÂ toxins, fermentation and putrefaction can seep back into the bloodstream and so poisoning every organ in the body. The fifty million pounds that are spent annually on laxatives in the UK clearly indicates that effective elimination is a major problem for many people and the resultant auto-intoxication, literally self-poisoning, is a causative factor in many serious diseases.
There are a number of herbs which are traditionally known to assist in the cleansing of the colon. They can be used alone or alongside colonics or enemas to deepen the cleansing effects of those treatments. One of the advantages of taking a herbal cleanse is that taken orally, the herbs cleanse and detoxify the whole digestive system, the stomach, the small intestine and the large intestine.
Many people ask what is colonic irrigation and what are the benefits? Sandra Hillawi trained as a Colonic Irrigation Therapist in 2000 when she qualified as a Master Herbalist with the College of Herbs and Natural Healing. At her healing and detox retreatsÂ Sandra usesÂ various forms of colon cleansing, including colonics, herbal cleansing and enemas. This article answers the commons questions about colonic irrigation : can itÂ help weightloss ?Â digestive problems ? energy levels and vitality ? is it painful ? is it safe ? are there downsides ? can it help candida ?
Sandra Hillawi has run many detox, healing yoga retreats since 2002 in France, Egypt and the UK.Â Enjoy some of the client photos with their feedback and comments about their detox experience. As you can see, they were all delighted, happy, healthy and freeÂ
How a detoxÂ works and why we use raw foods and juices is simple to understand when we think about the process of digestion and the role of enzymes. Enzymes are found in raw food, but are destroyed in cooking. Cooked food therefore requires the bodyâ€™s enzymes to digest it, which can take up to 70% of our energy. Going raw means the enzymes which are both the life force and the digestive power are still in the food and can assist in digestion. This makes much more energy available to the body for other process such as living, cleansing and repair. A raw diet is a healthy low calorie diet so a healthyÂ way to lose excess weight.
At our healing retreats the focus is on natural healing.
So let's take a closer look at those factors effecting our overall health, the causes of disease, and our approach to restoring health naturally.
Hello and welcome to Healing Retreats with Sandra Hillawi.
12 years ago I was introduced to the idea of healing retreats myself. I was run down, over worked, exhausted and had lost my zest for life. I had read about detox retreats and took the plunge and what happened was amazing.
It changed my life.
