My Colonic Journey Continues

I have been seeing Mel at The Colonic Clinic for a little over two years now. During October and November this year I had some extra treatments with Mel, I had previously was having them on my cycle.

I was starting to experience some unknown anxious feelings in the evening before I would go to sleep. I told Mel about it and she suggested that I should come into the clinic for some extra treatments to see if it would ease, she also explained a gentle gut cleanse she had started herself and that she had a new product in the clinic. The product was Qenda Ultimate Fibre. Ultimate Fibre contains all certified organic ingredients from nature, it is a fully balanced spectrum of powerful herbs abundant in plant fibre, nutritive vitamins, minerals, demulcents, anti-oxidants, essential compounds, enzymes and adaptogenic herbs.

I was aiming at doing 2-3 colonics per week in the beginning to really try and shake these emotional feelings I was having at night. When I have colonics I generally walk out the room feeling so chilled out. Like walking on a cloud, I feel light, my shoulders hold less tension and I have less brain fog almost instantly. Mel always has a giggle at me because I am soooo relaxed! After a week of taking Qenda and having 2 Colonics I was having no anxiety at all and easing to rest a little faster at night.

I continued to do Qenda for the next few months. It blew me away at what my body was letting go off. I would feel a little anxious in my upper tummy and then 20 minutes later I would poop out a big bit of old black hard poo. It was like my mind was allowing my body to cleanse of all the shit (literally) I was holding on to.

Over the past year I have been loving vegan/veggie meals but since starting Qenda, I made a conscious decision to eat purely plant based foods. I feel really great and I am loving the creativity my husband and I are having with creating new meals in our family home. I do not label ourselves with a “type” of way we eat. However eating plantbased would be the best way to describe it. Dave and I feel it compliments our lifestyle and our conscious heart that is learning so much about looking our for our world we live in.

I often get asked if I will continue to have colonics for the rest of my life! I have to admit that I actually cannot live without them anymore. The feeling I get post treatment is like nothing I have experienced before. I genuinely trust Mel with her guidance. She is a dear friend to myself and my family now, I will be forever grateful to my friend Emma for introducing me to Mel. She is a true blessing to have in my life.

Mel firmly believes, (I agree with her too) that because I have been so consistent with my colonics (like getting my hair done when I am on my cycle). That this is the reason as to why I am seeing so many benefits within my body. My skin is clearer, I get less anxious when I have them, my poops are great and I now go daily. Plus I hardly ever get sick anymore.

Those post colonic feels!

I am so open to chatting all things colonics and as you know I see so many benefits when I have them. I am always open to answering your questions or chatting to Mel for you. My skin is amazing, I feel happier in my mind, sleep is better, the insomnia is less and I poo 4 poos the size of my elbow to wrist every single day (yes you read that right). I do work in the medical world as a Registered Nurse but I have a true belief that the natural medical profession can also help our world of sick humans too. Maybe even help to prevent having to use some of the these services as often as we do now.

Studio Pilates – My Personal Journey

 

I celebrated a win on Sunday! I did my 20th Studio Pilates class at the Wellington Point Studio. CELEBRATE GOOD TIMES COME ON!! Studio Pilates is a total body exercise, developed almost one hundred years ago by Joseph Pilates, to rehabilitate injured WW1 soldiers and later, for strength and conditioning of dancers, pretty cool right?

Studio Pilates is a total-body workout, with powerful cross-training benefits, focusing on strength, mobility, endurance, body alignment and breath control. 

I decided after having my third child via a C Section, that I wanted to give reformer  pilates a try. I had heard from one of my girl friends how much it had helped her with her postpartum recovery, plus I  wanted to re build my body, make it strong and allow it to recover safely before returning to my usual high-intensity workouts that I love and have done for years now. During this process though I feel in love with pilates. I have a Studio Pilates down the road from me, with 3 young children , this was so convenient as I could sneak off early morning when David (my husband) was not working and do a class.

The classes go for a total of 45 minutes, you only have to arrive 5 minutes early and you just need light workout clothes and some grippy socks. Because I’m used to high-intensity workouts or home work outs using weights, I found it took a while to get out of the mindset that you really have to be dripping with sweat to get a workout. NOT TRUE BY THE WAY! Although I do still love to sweat a few days a week at home, these Studio Pilates classes were really something my body was loving. I found it helped to sculpt my body in places I have always struggled with. I mentally felt strong too, as I feel I was also practicing mindfulness in the class. I would concentrate so hard on the movements that my mind would only focus on one thing and that was PILATES!! I would also be so proud of my body and what it could achieve each class.

The class starts with a stretch, while you do that, the instructor comes and personally greats each individual. They also check in on how you are feeling and if you have any injuries. I loved this as I could explain about my scar and how I was feeling that morning after a night of breastfeeding haha. They were really supportive of each client and their individual journey. They also are there to modify the exercise if need be for you if you do have injuries or if you are more experienced. I find it very personalised.

I feel my body is starting to feel stronger, look more sculpted and my T Zone area and Pelvic floor muscles are improving with each class. I love what it is doing for my posture too, I have a natural arch in my back, so I have found that these classes are helping me to switch my abdominal muscles, pull them in and support my body when I am holding my babies or doing simple daily tasks. I look forward to working hard in future classes to continue to improve my strength too. I will be adding in some more cardio and weighted classes in the next month along side my Studio Pilates classes. So I look forward to seeing more progress and how Studio Pilates can compliment that too. I have made some new friends, found a new passion and I love that I am seeing improvement every class. From the moment I finished the orientation class I have been hooked, I will defiantly be continuing. Will keep you updated!
