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.
