I’m on the 12 Day and have some questions:

Should I do 12 Days... if I am pregnant or currently trying to become pregnant?

Do NOT undertake a cleanse if you are pregnant or if you are breast feeding.

Should I do 12 Days... if I am on any prescribed medication?

If you have any health concerns speak to your general health practitioner

I have never cleansed before, I am overweight and live a highly stressful city life? Is this programme suitable for me?

If you are starting to see yourself fraying at the edges, then you are an ideal candidate for 12 Days…! It will help you to manage your stress, stay in control and restore you to your optimum levels of health and vitality.

Is 12 Days... a weight loss programme?

No, strictly speaking it is not a weight loss programme, although clients have reported losing anything from 7lbs and above. You will lose only the weight that you need to lose which is mostly composed of toxic matter.

What symptoms should I expect during 12 Days...?

Every body responds differently to cleansing. Some first timers may feel symptoms such as a mild headache, tiredness, hiccups and spots. These are not bad in themselves, but simply the body’s way of eliminating toxins. Your symptoms will depend on the degree of internal toxicity before you start the programme. Remember to take time to rest during 12 Days…

Will I feel hungry during the programme?

No, you shouldn’t. You will be filling up with delicious and healthy recipes that you will find in The 12 Day Menu Guide. You will also be taking the SuperAbsorb formula, which contains psyllium husk that makes the stomach think that it is full.

Is colonic hydrotherapy painful?

No, the continuous flow of water entering and leaving the bowel create a cool and gentle sensation in your intestines and bowel.

Is colonic hydrotherapy safe?

Yes, providing you use a registered hydrotherapist. All equipment used is either disposable or sterilised, the filtered water is at low pressure and you will be in expert hands. Colonic hydrotherapy is not habit forming unlike the use of laxatives and enemas.

Should I continue to take colonic hydrotherapy after the Cleanse?

In order for the body and mind to perform at its optimum level of health and vitality during the course of our lives we recommend having colonic hydrotherapy every 6 months. It is always best to have colonic hydrotherapy in conjunction with a comprehensive cleanse such as the Mind & Body Cleanse™, by Chris James.

What is the difference between enemas and colonic hydrotherapy?

Enemas do not reach the upper part of the colon and at best only flush out the rectum and a small part of the lower colon. Colonic hydrotherapy is much more effective at cleansing the body.

Can I take chemical laxatives instead of colonic hydrotherapy?

Chemical laxatives will do nothing whatsoever to remove the deeply impacted mucus and putrefied waste inside the colon. The inorganic chemicals that are used are entirely incompatible with the human system. The thick mucus coating on the intestinal wall will only be eliminated with a systematic cleanse, such as 12 Days… in conjunction with colonic hydrotherapy

How often should I do 12 Days...?

Three or four 12 Day cleanses yearly are recommended, while taking care of your diet in-between by following my nutritional guidance for life recommendations on the next pages…

I’m curious about Yoga:

What is yoga?

Yoga as a practice originated in India at least 2,500 years ago. The best known description of yoga from the ancient texts is that it is a process of stilling the turbulence of the mind to create mental clarity. There are many different ways of doing this, but the most common in the West involves working with the physical body in order to bring it to a state of effortless ease, which prevents it from distracting our mental calm. This is primarily done through putting the body into a variety of postures—known as asanas—usually combined with specific awareness of the breath.

What are the benefits of practising yoga?

Purely on a physical level, regular practice of yoga asanas will help bring about increased stamina, strength and flexibility. These are worthwhile by-products, but they are not the specific goal of yoga—by stilling the mind, we are able to live more in the present moment, and to be more aware of the true nature or our selves and the world around us. In fact, one of the best reasons of all for practising yoga regularly is simply that it makes you feel great!

I am not flexible- can I do Yoga?

Yes. If you’re inflexible then you are the perfect candidate for yoga. Yoga enhances flexibility; it’s not a prerequisite. So if, like most of us, you’ve got tight shoulders, back, hamstrings, hips, quads… yoga will really help.

I am pregnant, can I take Yoga classes?

With the approval of your medical practitioner, you are encouraged to do yoga during Pregnancy for your health and the baby’s health. Yoga and Pilates are excellent for pregnancy on physical, emotional + mental levels. However, for the first trimester, it is recommended you do not practise yoga. This is a crucial phase + it is important that the body is allowed space to adapt to the transition. The second + third trimester are times when yoga can support + aid pregnancy.

Is anyone too old for Yoga?

People of all ages practise, from kids to senior men + women. You cannot be too old to start or practise yoga. It can be taken up at any time of life. Yoga is an excellent way for seniors to enjoy the physical benefits, the social aspect of attending class, and the general sense of wellbeing yoga gives you. Whatever age you are, the best way to start yoga is with a Beginners Course or have a one on one with Chris.

Can I practice Yoga with an injury?

It depends on the nature of the injury. Yoga can be great for rehabilitation from injuries. If you have seen a GP or specialist, they will advise you. If you are uncertain, call the Studio and explain the situation. You must tell Chris before the class begins of any injuries so he can help you adjust your practice.
