Brianan is an ARCH qualified Colon Hydrotherapist, Functional Medicine Practitioner, certified Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) Practitioner, Naturopath and Nutritionist who became passionate about health following her many years of working in the television industry, during which time she became very aware of the effect that long working hours, sleep deprivation and poor diet can have upon your health. Brianan soon realised that if you do not have your health you cannot enjoy any aspect of your life whether it be work or family.
After leaving the world of television she decided upon studying Natuopathic Nutrition at the College of Naturopathic Medicine followed by Colon Hydrotherapy with Roger Groos and Functional Medicine, which she studied in the States.
This line of study opened her eyes to how powerful diet and lifestyle can be upon our health, best summarised as the food you eat can either be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.
As repeatedly proven in modern research the effect poor diet can have upon your health and particularly with regard to your digestive health is compelling and that is the reason she focuses upon the gut, primarily for the following reasons:
- The gut is the organ of the body that produces a majority of the neurotransmitters
- The gut houses two thirds of the immune system
- The gut components contain more cells than the rest of the body combined
- The gut houses a genome of 100-150 times larger than the human genome
- The gut has a metabolic activity greater than the liver
When your gut is not functioning optimally, whether this is due to stress or poor diet, it has a huge impact on your overall health. Colon Hydrotherapy can be of real benefit to gut health, and that alongside the right advice, and in some circumstances the addition of supplements, can have a profound and positive effect.
Brianan’s clinical experience, has found that as well as a series of Colon Hydrotherapy treatments, Functional Medicine testing is sometimes required to identify the underlying causes, whether that is SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) breath test or a comprehensive stool test, helping her to identify the root cause of their problem.
Brianan has worked with hundreds of clients with a broad range of ailments, including:
SIBO, gut permeability, IBS, IBD, autoimmune conditions such as Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s, Hashimoto’s, Graves Disease, rheumatoid arthritis and chronic conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, Lyme Disease, fatty liver disease.
From her many years of clinical experience she has learned the importance of listening to her clients to pinpoint exactly when their symptoms started and the influences in their lives that allowed their illness to take hold. Based on this information she can work with you to find the underlying cause. Never promising a quick fix, but instead by working together, she can help you back to good health.
