Why is nutrition so important?
About LilyColon hydrotherapist & orthomolecular nutrition consultant
My journey to a better quality of life…
Since early childhood I suffered from severe tummy aches, headaches, mood swings, a runny nose, menstrual problems, eczema, lethargy and tiredness. I was a bad eater, yet on my many visits to the doctor I was never asked about my eating habits.
My life changed when I moved to Bangkok in 2001 when I was introduced to the concept of body detoxification and colon hydrotherapy and completed a 7–day detox regime which included 3 intestinal cleanses.
Not all my health issues vanished overnight, however it did mark the start of a journey to a much better quality of life – a journey that I am still pursuing today.
My qualifications & experience…
I am certified and hold diplomas in colon hydrotherapy, orthomolecular & clinical nutrition, GAPS therapy, detox coach and Basic Medical Knowledge. I studied abdominal treatments and optimum digestive health at The Viva Mayr Modern Medicine Clinic in Austria and attended courses arranged by the Institute of Functional Medicine. I also hold certificates for various massage techniques including Tsi Nei Tsang (Chinese internal organ massage).
I have worked for many years at the Dubai Herbal & Treatment Centre in the United Arab Emirates, Rasayana Retreat in Bangkok (Thailand) and Healthy Healing in Goa (India)
After having lived and worked abroad for the last 30 years, I have, since June 2017, settled back in The Netherlands where I practice as colon hydrotherapist and nutrition consultant in Den Bosch and Berkel Enschot. (www.coloninbalance.com)
During my therapy sessions I combine bodywork, nutrition and colon hydrotherapy. I use the personalized functional medicine approach to get to the root cause of your symptoms and restore balance within your body.
I aim to create a lifelong enthusiasm and motivation for healthy foods and living.
What works for one person may not work for the next, therefore I assess each individual and tailor-make the programme according to their requirements. A process that takes time and patience.

1. During a private session I will question you to compile a complete picture of your medical history, eating habits, lifestyle etc. Depending on this we will discuss what we can change or introduce to improve your condition and health issues.
2. If requested this may be followed by a hands-on Food Preparation Workshopin the kitchen that will teach you how to prepare certain foods (including GAPS foods) in order to continue your healthy lifestyle. The focus will be on healthy optimum digestion and adding delicious healthy foods to your daily lifestyle rather than focusing on calorie counting or unhealthy foods. As your food choices improve and you achieve a balance in life you will notice positive changes in mood, sleep, energy and general health.

GAPS nutritional protocol…
Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAP Syndrome or GAPS) is a condition which establishes a connection between the functions of the digestive system and the brain.
It was created to help children and adults with learning disabilities such as autism, ADHD, depression, biopolar disorder etc but also helps people heal from auto immune conditions.
The protocol addresses the three underlying factors that often cause disease: leaky gut, gut flora imbalance, and nutrient deficiencies.
The GAPS programme is broken into three parts (diet, supplementation & detoxification) specifically designed to heal and seal the gut lining, rebalance the immune system, and restore the optimal bacterial ecosystem within the gastrointestinal tract.
Workshops on how to prepare GAPS foods are available, and you can read more information about the GAPS diet here.
Do you suffer from chronic fatigue, bloated tummy, migraines & headaches, depression, chronic constipation or loose stools, PMS, menopausal issues or even pain in seemingly unrelated parts of the body? If so, this could be due to toxicity in your body!
Poor dietary and eating habits, over eating, eating artificial and processed foods can cause your digestive organs to become sluggish and even clogged due to an excess of wastes and toxin buildup. Colon hydrotherapy is one of the most effective ways to eliminate such toxins, strengthen the digestive organs, and keep the body healthy and strong.
How does colon hydrotherapy work?
Warm filtered water is introduced into your colon through a small tube called a speculum that is gently inserted about an inch and a half into your rectum. As the warm water enters, you’ll feel a fullness as your colon fills up, then a relaxing feeling as it empties. The water pressure and temperature are carefully controlled and all waste is drained away discreetly in a closed system with absolutely no mess or odours. This filling and emptying is repeated several times and massage is applied to your abdomen. Unlike an enema, colonic hydrotherapy reaches the whole length of your large intestine, with the massage from your therapist helping to ensure you benefit from an effective cleanse.

Basically, detoxification means cleansing the blood. This is done by removing impurities from the blood in the liver, where toxins are processed for elimination. The body also eliminates toxins through the kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymphatic system, and skin.
A change of food choices or fasting combined with massages, certain supplements and colon cleanses (colon hydrotherapy) may result in a great increase of energy & vitality and an overall health improvement.
I enjoy working with the Innerwave detox programmes, simply because of the great improvements noticed in everyone that has ever done the Innerwave programme. It has various options anything from mild detoxing to 7 days juice fasting.
It is recommended to do a body detox once to twice a year.
