MORAG BOUTERSE – HOMEOPATHY & COLONIC HYDROTHERAPY

Morag Bouterse is a qualified homeopath and Colonic Hydrotherapist working in Chichester & Steyning in West Sussex

I first discovered homeopathy when my first child was born in 1998. He suffered with chronic eczema and seeking an alternative to steroid cream, I took him to a professional homeopath. His eczema soon cleared up and I was so impressed that I completed a First Aid Homeopathy course and began treating my family’s common ailments. I then went on to study for 4 years at The South Downs School of Homeopathy in Chichester, West Sussex, and graduated in 2009.

My approach is warm, friendly, sympathetic and down to earth. I enjoy getting to know my patients and working with them to improve their health and vitality. I encourage them to take an active role in their healthcare by offering advice on diet and lifestyle, where appropriate. I passionately believe in homeopathy as an alternative system of healing, but at the same time recognise that some people prefer to use homeopathy to complement conventional treatment. I hope you will try it and discover for yourself the wonderful benefits it can offer.

I am insured with full professional and public liability insurance, a member of The Association of Registered Colon Hydrotherapists (ARCH) and also a member of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).

During my time practicing homeopathy it became obvious that diet and nutrition played a pivotal role in the overall health of my patients. As a result I began researching nutrition further and the unquestionable link between sensible eating habits and good health. As Hippocrates himself stated “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” It was at this point that I decided to train as a Colonic Hydrotherapist. I was very lucky to be trained by Dr. Milo Siewert at the National College of Colon Hydrotherapy. He introduced the treatment into the UK in the 1980’s and its popularity and availability is due to him.

As a nation we spend millions of pounds every year on improving our looks with cosmetic surgery, dental enhancement, plastic surgery, make-up and hair styling, but how much time do we spend on our internal health? I believe that if we look after the inside of our bodies, then we shall shine on the outside!

I now feel more energetic and vibrant in my forties than ever before, and look forward to an exciting and healthy future. I also feel that we all need to go at our own pace and I can support and encourage you to do this. Even small steps are better than none at all! Quick fixes don’t work and it is far better to introduce life changes slowly.

Homeopathy

A natural path to healing

Homeopathy has been well established in England for over two hundred years, having been developed by a German physician, Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843).

It is one of the most gentle, effective and sympathetic forms of healing. It is a holistic therapy, which means that it takes into consideration the individual as a whole.

Homeopathy addresses the underlying cause of an illness and does not work to suppress symptoms. Instead, remedies work from within to strengthen the body’s immune system and restore health, which can lead to increased levels of well-being.

When we are healthy, as well as experiencing good physical health, we can enjoy a sense of well-being, a feeling of personal freedom and an ability to withstand stress.

Consultation

Homeopathic treatment involves obtaining a complete picture of the patient. Homeopathy respects everyone as an individual and understands that each person is unique and will respond to disease or stress in different ways, both physically and emotionally. For example, one person may be tearful with their stress, another angry.

So, rather than one standard treatment for a particular illness, such as the prescription of an antibiotic, in homeopathy patients will need different remedies for the same condition, depending on their personal response to their illness. For that reason, to find the correct remedy individually suited to the patient, many factors must be taken into account. Initial consultations therefore, can take up to 1 ½ hours.

Remedies

Homeopathic remedies are made from a variety of materials including plant, mineral and animal substances, diluted many times to minute doses. They act to stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms, a bit like jump starting your car, thereby allowing the body to heal itself and strengthen its vitality. Our bodies are naturally self-regulating. When we are cold we shiver, which helps us to warm up. When we have an infection, our body can develop a temperature, which will kill off the bugs.

Ideally, we should be able to withstand any stresses that come our way and naturally heal ourselves. Sometimes we can become unbalanced and at those times, we can become ill or ‘dis-eased’. This can be triggered by many different factors: lack of sleep, stress, arguments, shock, bereavement, relationship problems, anxiety and pollution to name but a few.

At times like these, homeopathic remedies can be prescribed to help regain that balance and bring order back to the body.
Being healthy is more than just an absence of disease. When we are healthy, as well as experiencing good physical health, we can enjoy a sense of well-being, a feeling of personal freedom and an ability to withstand stress.

Homeopathy can help you to realise this and I would encourage you to try it.

Colonic Hydrotherapy

As we all know, your health is your wealth.

People spend millions of pounds every year on improving the outside of their bodies leaving little thought about what is happening on the inside.

Those who do not find some time every day for health must sacrifice a lot of time one day for illness.

We are bombarded by the information about what we should and shouldn’t eat. How much water we should drink, how to stay young and happy or what a person’s weight should be. Is being vegetarian a good thing for everyone? Is sashimi and miso the new miracle diet?

Finding your own way in the labyrinth of facts, figures and assumptions is sometimes very difficut and can be confusing for us. For many people, digestive health is a matter of great concern, and many women and men suffer from constipation, diarrhoea, IBS, bloating, itching and other complaints that just won’t go away.

“We are what we eat” is a popular saying but it is much closer to the truth to say that “we are what we absorb, assimilate and how effectively we eliminate”. The aim of colonic hydrotherapy is to achieve all of these factors. You can’t be truly happy and healthy whilst dragging around stale and stagnant waste in your colon!

Everyone will have a gap in their diet, so don’t despair if you can’t eat everything you need to become and stay healthy. Remember, it is not what you do occasionally that effects your health, it is what you do every day.

Blushing Britons

Bowel health is not an issue that we as a nation, discuss freely. The various discomforts that many Britons suffer from are simply not addressed in the media or within social circles to the same degree as other conditions, such as cancer or heart disease. Discussing the state of your bowels over dinner is simply not British and you are pretty much guaranteed to receive fewer invitations! It is not surprising therefore, that colonic hydrotherapy has become a somewhat taboo subject, which few people have a knowledge and understanding of. Colonic hydrotherapy does not deserve to be cast into the darkness any more as its benefits are truly cleansing and will make a difference to your well being.
