Colonic Inspiration – Talita in the papers

The treatment, which involves gently inserting water into the colon to expel built-up waste and toxins, has grown in popularity.

It has been shown to help sufferers of conditions including irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, and as Talita herself discovered, poor post-natal health.

The 33-year-old explained: “I had a challenging job in IT for 10 years, and was earning London wages, but it’s been my life-long dream to start my own business.”

When she was introduced to the treatment following a harrowing birth experience, she found it to be a “miracle cure,” and decided to help others.

After an agonising two-day labour her daughter Ilana was born, but traumatised Talita was left feeling battered, bruised, and unable to go to the toilet for more than three weeks.

As a result of re-absorbing toxins in her body and feeling generally unwell, she felt unable to connect with her daughter, and was even convinced she was suffering from post-natal depression.

She continued: “I had the perfect birth plan all mapped out, but everything that could have gone wrong, did. Afterwards, I was feeling really ill, and felt unable to pick Ilana up, or play with her. I felt like I just wasn’t meant to be a mother. I had to do something.

“A friend suggested I try colonic hydrotherapy, but at first, I was reluctant. I even cancelled my appointment three times before going.

“But the treatment was so gentle, and afterwards, I felt so alive – like I could conquer the world. It was a healing experience, and it restored my relationship with my child.”

Talita, who lives with her husband Andy, daughter Ilana, now 8, and 5-year-old son Kristian, said she was so impressed with the treatment, that she began looking into training to do it herself.

After two years of intense study, she became a qualified colonic hydrotherapist, quit her successful career in IT, and went in search of suitable premises for her business.

She eventually found the perfect site – a clean, bright and discreet building tucked behind Rainham High Street – and opened for business on September 11.

Talita herself admits the concept “isn’t everyone’s cup of tea,” but insists it is the best thing she ever did, adding: “I know I work at the wrong end of the body, but it’s about making people feel better – not worse. There are just so many benefits.

“Most clients leave feeling like a million dollars, because so many toxins are expelled. A lot of people see it as a medical procedure, but it’s more like a treatment. It’s not painful, uncomfortable, or embarrassing. I have it done four times a year, and see it as a chance to spoil myself.

“I do it through choice. This business is my third baby, and I just want to help people.”

Consultations last up to 90 minutes, with the colonic hydrotherapy taking from 30 to 45 minutes, and prices start from £75.

Optibac for those on antibiotics

For people who are currently taking antibiotics (e.g. amoxicillin, tetracycline, doxycycline), or have recently finished an antibiotic course, For those on antibiotics is designed to maintain a healthy balance of friendly bacteria in the intestinal tract during and after the antibiotic course.

 

The normal balance of friendly bacteria in our gut is fragile and can easily be disturbed by factors such as stress, diet, ageing, and medication (e.g. antibiotics). For those on antibiotics promotes a healthy balance of good bacteria, thereby supporting health, digestion and immunity for patients taking antibiotics.

 

Ingredients

Lactobacillus rhamnosus Rosell-11 – a natural component of the friendly bacteria in the intestines; this species is one of the most studied in the probiotic world. L. rhamnosus Rosell-11 has been proven to resist bile and gastric acidity over pH 3 – therefore if taken at mealtimes (when pH is around 4), it will pass through the stomach without being damaged. L. rhamnosus Rosell-11 is able to bind strongly to the intestinal cells and helps maintain a strong immune system.

 

Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52 – a natural resident of the intestinal microflora; this strain of friendly bacteria has been well studied to survive the gastric acids and bile salts expected at mealtimes and to reach the intestines without damage. In addition, L. acidophilus Rosell-52 can adhere to the cell wall lining of the intestines and exert beneficial effects in terms of inhibiting intestinal pathogens and supporting immune cells.

 

OptiBac Probiotics guarantees 4 billion live micro-organisms per capsule until the best before date. For those on antibiotics is suitable for vegetarians, vegans, during pregnancy and is free from artificial colours, gluten and yeast.

 

Directions

As a food supplement, For those on antibiotics can be given to adults and children (over 3 years) with the following recommendations:

Optibac for daily wellbeing

Daily probiotic support means normalising a healthy balance of friendly bacteria throughout the entire intestinal tract. With OptiBac Probiotics, the different strains (or types) of friendly bacteria along with the prebiotics have been specifically chosen for the different clinically proven health benefits they convey in the different parts of the small and large (colon) intestine.

 

OptiBac Probiotics For daily wellbeing provides a high potency and select variety of well researched and documented probiotic strains. In addition For daily wellbeing is free from sugars, fats, preservatives or colourings that may be found in some daily probiotic foods and drinks.

 

Ingredients

Lactobacilli Strains: Lactobacillus rhamnosus Rosell-11 and Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52 are among the most well researched and documented species of friendly bacteria naturally resident in the human gut. These strains have been well studied to survive the gastric acids and bile salts expected at mealtimes and to reach the intestines without damage where they colonise well, support immune cells and create a healthy lactic acid environment that limits survival of harmful bacteria (e.g. Streptococus aureus, Enterobacter cloacae, Listeria monocytogenes).

 

Bifidobacteria Strains: Bifidobacterium longum Rosell-175, Bifidobacterium breve Rosell-70 and Bifidobacterium bifidum Rosell-71 colonise primarily in the large intestine (or colon). In this region they promote the production of antibodies, support the body against toxins and inhibit the development of undesirable bacteria by competitively excluding their attachment to the intestinal wall lining. In addition, a healthy balance of bifidobacteria supports the intestines in assisting transit and optimizing a healthy frequency and regularity of bowel movements.

 

Lactococcus lactis Rosell-1058: This strain is obtained from the kefir culture and is renowned for the antimicrobial benefits in supporting the body against undesirable harmful bacteria and some fungi.

 

Prebiotics: The non-digestible FOS (fructooligosaccharides) safely make their way to the large intestine (colon) where they act as a food source to stimulate growth of the bifidobacteria. The symbiotic relationship between bifidobacteria and prebiotics in the colon has a great impact on supporting intestinal health and wellbeing.

 

OptiBac Probiotics guarantees 2.5 billion live micro-organisms per vegetarian capsule until the best before date.

 

Directions

As a food supplement OptiBac Probiotics For daily wellbeing can be given to adults and children (over 3 years) with the following recommendations:

– Take two capsules daily with food, preferably with breakfast, or as professionally directed.

– For young children or any patient unable to swallow capsules, the content of the capsules can be mixed with a cold meal or beverage.

 

Full ingredients

Potato starch, Fructooligosaccharides (FOS), Probiotic culture (Lactobacillus rhamnosus Rosell-11, Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52, Bifidobacterium longum Rosell-175, Lactococcus lactis Rosell-1058, Bifidobacterium breve Rosell-70, Bifidobacterium bifidum Rosell-71), hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, magnesium stearate, ascorbic acid.

 

Safety

OptiBac Probiotics For a flat stomach

 

Abdominal bloating is usually associated with over-eating, food intolerances, constipation, intestinal gas, PMS (or PMT) and menstruation when the abdomen feels uncomfortable, full and tight. When digestion is poor, waste materials and gases can remain in the gut for long periods of time – often at high temperatures and pressures – and stretch the gut walls beyond their comfortable limits.

Imbalances of bad bacteria over friendly bacteria in the intestines can result in poor digestive health, production of smelly and uncomfortable gases and sluggish bowel function. A one-week course of this OptiBac Probiotics formula re-balances the good bacteria in the small and large intestines to support healthy digestion and good intestinal passage for a comfortably flat stomach

 

Ingredients

Bifidobacterium bifidum Rosell-71: naturally resident in the colonic (large intestine) microflora, B. bifidum supports the production of antibodies, promotes detoxification and maintains resistance to undesirable pathogenic and putrefactive bacteria. In the colon, B. bifidum flourishes well with fructooligosaccharides (prebiotics) where it supports the intestines to assist transit, promote comfort and optimise a healthy frequency and regularity of bowel movements.

Prebiotics: The non-digestible FOS (fructooligosaccharides) safely make their way to the large intestine (colon) where they act as a food source to stimulate abundant growth of bifidobacteria. The symbiotic relationship between bifidobacteria and prebiotics in the colon has a great impact on supporting intestinal health and wellbeing.

Lactobacillus casei Rosell-215: an extensively studied species naturally resident to the intestinal flora; this strain has been researched in its ability to resist gastric acidity and bile salts in the harsh stomach environment in order to reach the small and large intestines alive where it exerts its probiotic benefits. L. casei has been shown to modulate the composition and growth of bifidobacteria in the colon and to support regularity.

Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52: a natural resident of the intestinal microflora; this strain has been well studied to survive the gastric acids and bile salts expected at mealtimes and to reach the intestines without damage. In addition, L. acidophilus can adhere to the cell wall lining of the intestines where it exerts it beneficial effects in terms of inhibiting intestinal pathogens and supporting immune cells.

Lactococcus lactis Rosell-1058: This strain is obtained from the kefir culture and is renowned for antimicrobial benefits in supporting the body against undesirable harmful bacteria and some fungi.

 

OptiBac Probiotics guarantees 5 billion live micro-organisms per sachet until the best before date.
