The digestive tract is connected to every part of the body, meaning the lack of regular bowel movements can lead to putrefaction, inflammation and an increased toxic load. Neomed offers a range of digestive health therapies including personalised diets. Please enquire for more details.
A sluggish colon or bowel can allow foods to putrefy rather than ferment due to the increased time they are in the colon as a direct effect of slow motility. When there is putrefaction in the colon the environment becomes inhospitable to beneficial gut flora. Unwanted bacteria, yeast, viruses and parasites thrive. In such conditions, specific compounds might be released that can damage the intestinal wall resulting in intestinal permeability (also known as leaky gut) and increased inflammation.
This effectively increases the toxin burden on the body, limiting additional drainage and detoxification pathways, increasing adrenal and thyroid dysfunction and resulting in brain inflammation as well as causing other problems. Colonic hydrotherapy is one of the most effective ways to reduce toxic burden in the colon by removing excess impacted faecal matter using purified water and gentle massage techniques.
Our range of enemas play a specific role as anti-parasitic and detoxifying agents. Our nutritional and probiotic enemas aim to fulfil specific needs required by each patient. Benefits include improved circulation, better concentration, a stronger immune system, insomnia, constipation, and headache relief.
There are around 40 trillion bacteria in the body and most reside in the gut microbiome. While bacteria are a necessary component of good health, the wrong types of bacteria in the intestines can contribute to a number of uncomfortable conditions and diseases.
One such condition is SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth). This occurs when gram-negative bacteria, which can exist quite happily in the large intestine, overruns the small intestine, triggering symptoms most commonly associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
Symptoms include cramping, flatulence, bloating, diarrhoea, and constipation. SIBO can also damage the intestinal lining leading to ‘leaky gut’.
While many factors can impact the type of bacteria found in the digestive tract, the food you eat plays one of the greatest roles in gut health.
