Our Gut Health is connected to our brain and many diseases and health issues is healed through a healthy gut. Working together we can strengthen/heal the "eco" system of the gut bacteria in your colon which plays a big part to clearer thinking, this then assist your decisions in your every day life.
At the Colon Cleansing Centre we believe that true beauty and total well-being comes from a holistic approach to health.
In modern society we often define health as ‘the absence of disease’, yet in reality it is far more than that. We believe true health to be a state where the mind and the body are functioning at peak efficiency.
Our colon is the support organ for the immune system, a strong health concern is that our colon does not hydrate correctly even if drinking 3 litres of water, by having colonic treatments the body through the colon can become re-hydrated which enables our nutrients to be supported through a strong absorption process and this will also support the immune system. It is being talked about these days that the gut is a very valuable system for health. Our gastrointestinal tract contains billions of live bacteria, some are bad and some are good, it is like an eco-system for the body. In a healthy person, there is approximately 80-85% combined good and neutral bacteria's. Friendly flora is weakened in colons that have old waste stuck to the walls, creating gas and bloating and also bowel movements that are not relieving to the body. Colon hydrotherapy, therefore, washes out not only the bad flora, but also the environment in which it grows. It is a common misconception that colonics can strip the body of healthy bacteria. The truth is that the body is so resilient that it will produce healthy bacteria, within 30 minutes after your session. Once toxins and inflammation/mucous are removed from the colon, the beneficial bacteria has a cleaner habitat/wall lining to facilitate their reproduction and multiplication. Therefore achieving a positive bacterial balance.
This leads to living life connecting with your health on a daily basis, experiencing increased levels of energy and vibrancy, along with improved vitality and mental clarity.
A proper combination of nutrition, exercise and Colonic Cleansing can help the body maintain and restore its natural healthy balance allowing us to enjoy a far greater degree of vitality and energy that we could possibly imagine.
There is no greater gift to give yourself than the time to take care of your own well being, allowing you to re-balance, rejuvenate and re-energise your mind, body and emotions.

About Natlaie Cross
I have chosen a wonderful journey as a Naturopath, Colon Hydrotherapist, Iridologist, Sclerologist and wellness retreat coach where I facilitate groups to understand the bodies detoxing process .
The journey I have been on with colonic health and my studies has given me a strong understanding of gut health.
My goal is to introduce as many people to an exciting new way of living through self-care and education.
Our bodies have the capacity to heal themselves, we just need to give our 2nd brain (the gut) the right information through colonic hydrotherapy to heal.
As a Colonic Hydrotherapist and Naturopath I will support your process and transition you to health, regardless of the stage you are at.
At the Colonic Cleansing Centre, Colon Cleansing, also known as Colonic Irrigation and Colonic Hydrotherapy, we use filtered water to cleanse and stimulate the colon which results in the relief of a wide variety of colon and bodily symptoms. At the Colonic Cleansing Centre, over a 45 minute period, warm water is gently repeatedly introduced into and released from the colon at a low pressure. I will also be massaging your colon (as it is a muscle) to help with your releases and this also helps to wash the colon walls.
Why do we need Colon Hydrotherapy?
Unfortunately, our modern diets coupled with stressful lifestyles and environmental pollutants have put a strain on our bodies which impacts on our colon. The food that we eat is digested less efficiently, we are prone to dehydration and this can result in a wide array of problems,such as constipation, IBS and unexplainable issues even though every test has been done A colonic can assists with these questions that sometimes can not be answered.
What exactly does a Colonic Cleansing treatment involve /how is it done?
Colon Hydrotherapy is a gentle treatment using warm filtered water the water is hygienically introduced into and released from the bowel through a closed colonic system machine. At the Colon Cleansing Centre a full appointment is for 60 minutes. It begins with a 10 minute introduction and ends with a short clean up. The actual Colonic Cleansing treatment is usually a 45 minute session. To start you off you will be given a massage of your shoulders to relax you which allows you to connect with the treatment and your practitioner, there is also a combination of abdomen massage and reflexology to assist the colon to release as much waste as possible.
I have meticulous standards: sterilised, single use, disposable kits for each session; all water entering your body is filtered and sterilised; and all waste water is captured within a totally closed hygienic system.
The session is in a private room with an experienced practitioner who appreciates the sensitivity of the treatment and will help put you at ease.
After your treatment, you will be feeling clean, light and revitalized.
All you have to do is lie comfortably on the bed, and you will feel a warm sensation in the bowel. As the water enters the bowel, you will begin to feel ‘full’ and as the water is released, you will feel a sensation of relief. The practitioner communicates with you throughout the process and the water can be turned off at any time. At the end of the session clients report feeling cleansed and 'lighter' than before their treatment.
Clients have described this as not just feeling of lighter weight, but also as a feeling of a lifting of their mood. Many do actually lose a little weight during the treatment as sometimes more than a kilogram of accumulated waste material can be attached to the colon walls. Just one Colonic Cleansing session is equivalent to having several regular bowel movements. Further sessions can be even more substantial as older feacal matter is dislodged from the colon walls.
At the end of a Colonic Cleansing treatment you will be given electrolytes to support your hydration, sheets of information to improve your general health and assist you with your Colonic Cleansing program and also to support you at home.
Colonics during a detox.
Common complaints of headaches, fatigue or nausea during a detox program are a toxic overload on the liver and organs. Including colonics in you detox program can help to eliminate these toxins quickly, preventing them from recirculating and keeping you feeling on top of your game. Even while you’re detoxing.
Special treatments for your detoxing can be arranged eg; 3, 5 or 7 day cleanses.
What will Colonic Cleansing do to the colon?
Specifically, a Colonic Cleansing treatment at the Colon Cleansing Centre is used to accomplish the following:
After the initial treatments how often should I have a Colonic Cleansing?
This can be decided through discussion between you and your practitioner. Some people may choose to have a Colonic Cleansing treatment monthly after their initial treatments. Some may need a Colonic Cleansing treatment more often. We are all unique after all!
How can I tell if I Colonic Cleansing treatment could be suitable for me?
Regular clients have reported health improvements throughout their bodies such as:
It is a safe, hygienic method of removing accumulated waste from the colon and is practiced all over the world.
The Colon Cleansing Centre is Wollongong Council approved.
I, Debbie Hannan am a member of Australian Colonic Health Association and have a Diploma of Colon Hydrotherapy, I am also a practicing Reiki Master which is used during your colonic treatment and a Meditation Teacher.
Common Colonic Cleansing Questions:
Is there anything I need to do to get ready for a Colonic Cleansing?
Since your abdomen will be massaged it is a good idea to eat (protein) and drink lightly in the 2 hours immediately preceding a Colonic Cleansing. If possible slowly drink 2 litres of water throughout the day prior to your Colonic Cleansing appointment. This assists in hydration and is a good preparation. 2 glasses first thing in the morning is very beneficial.
Is it embarrassing to have a Colonic Cleansing?
No, you will fully maintain your personal dignity. You will be in a private room with only your practitioner, who fully appreciates the sensitivity of the colonic procedure and will help you to feel at ease. Your emotions will be acknowledged and honoured. After the gentle insertion of a small sterile tube into the rectum, you are completely covered. Rubber tubing carries clean water in and waste out in a gravity pressured system.
It sounds like a Colonic Cleansing may be good for me, but will it be painful?
It rarely is. Some discomfort may arise as the result of resistance and tension. Sometimes during a Colonic treatment, the colon muscles will contract suddenly moving considerable amounts of liquid and waste towards the rectum. This may feel like cramping or gas, and may create a feeling of urgency to empty the rectum. Such episodes, if they do occur, are brief and easily tolerated.
At the Colon Cleansing Centre your professional colon practitioner is able to release the water pressure at any time to reduce discomfort immediately. The practitioner will communicate with you through the whole process and is skilled at putting you at your ease and minimising any discomfort. Most people actually enjoy the Colonic Cleansing and are especially pleased with the unaccustomed sensation of feeling light, clean and clear afterwards.
What Can I have a Colonic Cleansing treatment if I am on the pill?
Yes – a Colonic Cleansing treatment does not interfere with the use of the contraceptive pill.
Can I have a Colonic Cleansing treatment if I have my period?
If you have strong period pains and you don't feel well enough to come then try to avoid making your appointment during your period. If it is not so bad, then it can actually be a very beneficial time for a Colonic Cleansing as both are an elimination time.
When is a Colonic Cleansing treatment NOT recommended?
Please speak to your therapist who will professionally discuss your personal concerns. During pregnancy is not recommended or under the age of 18 years.
Why not just use enemas, suppositories or laxatives instead?
Enemas do not clear as much of the colon as Colonic Cleansing. Suppositories and laxatives can contain chemicals to create bowel movement and cause dehydration. Colonic Cleansing treatment however does NOT contain chemicals and instead hydrates.
Also the colon is 6 feet long and is full of pockets the colon cleansing treatment with hydration/water moves much more effectively around the colon and the pockets and gets in deeper.
What can I expect afterwards?
You will feel lighter and enjoy a sense of well-being.
Someone having their first Colonic Cleansing treatment will remark that it was an amazing experience. As soon as the Colonic Cleansing treatment is finished you can carry on with daily routine. For some, the treatment may trigger the contraction of the colon.
Are Colonic Treatments dangerous in any way?
At the Colonic Cleansing Centre it is our intent to provide a safe service. We do NOT use harmful chemicals, sterile disposable gloves and tubes are used, cleaning of equipment and linen are a part of normal procedure. Your practitioner is experienced and industry qualified.
Will a Colonic treatment make me constipated or give me diarhoea?
The most frequent post Colonic experience is to have a slight delay in bowel movements for a day or two (depending on your condition) and then a resumption of a somewhat larger, easier to move stools. Directly after the treatment loose motions may be experienced. This could be due to the extra water introduced into the colon and if this occurs it is usually of a very short duration.
Suppose I have been suffering from constipation for a long time, will Colonics treatments help?
We want to state that constipation can be successfully treated with harmless techniques, including the use of Colonics. Constipation is one of what may be termed ‘modern civilised man's diseases’. There are three factors involved in having a well functioning colon: diet, exercise and attitude. All three must be in balance for the colon to function well. However when the colon has been sluggish for along time, it may become misshapen from holding excessive amount of feacel matter, and constricted by chronic tension in the colon. The process of Colonic Cleansing is excellent for clearing the colon sufficiently so that changes in diet, exercise, and attitude are then able to produce their effects. Clients have found that the relief provided by Colonic Cleansing treatments helps to stimulate the motivation and enthusiasm to institute positive changes in their lifestyle.
Will it be all right to eat after having a Colonic Cleansing treatment?
We suggest that you eat at your normal mealtime, and consume a moderate amount of whatever seems gentle and nourishing to your gut listen to your gut it is your 2nd brain. Just as it doesn't make sense to have your car cleaned and then immediately drive it through mud, eating a meal known to cause trouble in your abdomen directly after a Colonic isn't an intelligent choice. Eating a wide variety of foods and getting enough fibre is important. More information will be provided by your practitioner. Definitely do not drink alcohol as there may be a reaction.
Will one Colonic Cleansing treatment completely empty the colon?
It depends on your lifestyle, stress, body type, hydration level and dietary choices. From our clients experience a complete emptying after one Colonic Cleansing treatment occurs almost never. Also, a subtle learning process connecting with you is involved in receiving Colonic Cleansing. As you become more aware of what is going on in your colon, and connecting to the cleansing experience, you are better able to enter into the process, and therefore more feacal material is released.
Studies are now proving that our gut is connected to our brain, our thoughts are our health and by having a clean colon with regular bowel movements our thinking is more productive.
The colon is also the support organ for our immune system; with a clean colon our immune system can absorb the nutrients from our food and drink. The colon is our last organ and needs to be functioning well to help with the elimination process.
Look forward to seeing you
