The Gut and Skin Clinic



During a probiotic implant,  probiotic gut flora microbiome cultures are introduced and retained in the bowel for a number of minutes. This is always done directly after a session of colonic hydrotherapy for best results because the colonic aims to prepare the bowel by removing feacal matter, and excess Candida as well as  other
imbalanced unhealthy gut flora cultures that may accumulate on the bowel wall according to some. 

Will I see candida and imbalanced gut flora during colonics?

Matter releases is not analysed or tested but very often it is possible to see  white fluffy material coming away usually at the end of the treatment of colonic
hydrotherapy. Some people believe this to be candida and other imbalanced gut flora leaving the body. It resembles white fluffy cotton wool, and comes away sometimes in large chunks. 

During the probiotic implant enema, it is believed that good gut flora microbiome live cultures have the opportunity to populate deep inside the
lumen of the gut or bowel. Given every opportunity to grow and flourish within the bowel, it is aimed that gut flora populations restore optimally. 

It is believed that in the absence of the excess candida, healthy live gut flora microbiome cultures can grow and become balanced.


World leading gut health researcher and physician Dr. Perlmutter claims that the best way to restore gut flora is via a probiotic
enema implant directly into the bowel via enema. Certainly, many people now chose to combine probiotic implants with oral probiotics as part of a healthy lifestyle and dietary plan. 


Why is gut health important for overall health?

It is now accepted that many skin problems, mood issues, weight problems and illnesses start in the gut and bowel. It is also accepted that populations in the western world have imbalanced gut flora due to wide spread and incorrect use of anti-biotics. Clearing the weeds before planting the seeds is what a gardener would do if his patch was overcome with unhelpful flora and fauna. 

Since the gut contains a microscopic garden,  some people believe that treating it in much the same way has potential wellbeing benefits. For those interested in following this philosophy known commonly as The Gut Garden Concept, a gut restoration probiotic implant plan may take the following form: 

Stage 1: That is the first stage of a philosophy of gut wellbeing known as The Gut Garden Concept. It involves cleansing the bowel with the aim of targeting imbalanced gut flora like candida and toxins.

Stage 2: The second stage is to replant your gut garden with probiotics and to identify food triggers which may be causing skin problems, bloating, mood imbalances and weight gain.

Stage 3. The third step is to maintain and fertilise the gut garden with prebiotic foods such as kimchi and kombucha. These fermented foods feed the good gut flora in your bowel.

Stage 4: The fourth stage is to protect the gut garden and the bowel from further imbalancing substances by being mindful of chemicals and toxins in foods, and drinks.  Always consults a medical practitioner before taking on any health or lifestyle changes. 

What is the best way to replant gut flora?

Everyone knows that taking oral probiotics is important. But it may also be an idea to add direct probiotic implantation to your gut restoration plan because according to acclaimed author and physician Dr. David Perlmutter the best and most direct way to replant gut flora is with probiotic enemas. Taking oral probiotics and having direct gut flora probiotic enemas together is recommended for those aiming to restore gut flora optimally. 

What are the benefits of colonic hydrotherapy for improved gut health?

Clearing and cleansing the liver and colon with colonic hydrotherapy and liver coffee enemas is believed to boost the metabolism, remove eye bags, reduce bloating, improve skin problems like acne and to kick start weight loss due to increased hydration according to some. 

Probiotic enema implants which are believed to be the best way to implant gut flora directly into the bowel according to the internationally acclaimed gut health author Dr. David Perlmutter (MD).



Can I have probiotic implants when I am taking oral probiotics?

Yes. It would make sense to do so especially considering that it is estimated that almost everyone has imbalanced gut flora. This is thought to be linked to the fact that almost  everyone has been exposed to anti-biotics or other gut flora disturbing materials at least once in their lives. The principle of taking probiotics for boosted wellbeing is based on the idea that everyone has imbalanced gut flora which has been linked to skin conditions like acne and eczema, as well as many other digestive issues, it is perhaps time to focus on clearing and replanting the gut in line with healthy diet and lifestyle changes to manifest wellness. 

Why do people have colonics for gut health?

Some people undergo colonics because they believe the treatment has the ability to rid the bowel of excess candida. The idea of clearing away bad gut flora  and replanting good gut flora  as a fundamental of good living makes sense to many. For those who do find this a sensible options,  the principles of caring for the gut garden as if it were a real garden make absolute sense. 

That is why many gut health experts now recommend adding probiotic enemas to wellbeing protocols.   

Probiotic Drinks

It would seem helpful to take probiotic drinks, and to supplement them with oral probiotics, and probiotic implants to maximise intake of probiotics. 

A typical probiotic implant programme may look be done over the course of three weeks and may look something like this. 

Week 1: Colonic + Probiotic Enema Implant- 1 hour
Week 2: Colonic + Probiotic Enema Implant- – 1 hour
Week 3: Colonic + Probiotic Enema Implant- – 1 hour


Gut health has become a highly discussed topic. You can now read hundreds of very scientific books, studies, and articles online about imbalanced gut flora
and live culture microbiome. One easy way to understand what
imbalanced gut flora is about, and to get to grips with the value of healthy gut microbiome is to consider your gut to be akin to a tiny garden growing deep inside the bowel walls. 

What is gut flora symbiosis?

Imagine that your gut (aka bowel, colon, large intestine) has a tiny garden of microbiome growing inside it. Everything has its place in the garden. There is balance in the garden of your gut too. If a weed comes up, they cannot take over because other plants are there to control them from having a monopoly. This is a very simple way of understanding gut flora symbiosis.  

This happens deep inside the bowel wall. It is important to understand that the bowel is the gut when talking about gut flora microbiomes and live cultures because that is where they grow and do the majority of their valuable health work.

RESTORING GUT FLORA with Probiotic Implants

According to Dr. David Perlmutter, a second generation medical doctor, and author of several gut health books the very best  and most direct way to restore gut flora is through a series of probiotic implants directly into the bowel.  For those who wish to follow this advice, the programme is done weekly for at least 3 weeks. It is always done following a colonic hydrotherapy session with the aim of removing  excess Candida so that the probiotic can have the opportunity to take  in the gut wall.


“Colonic irrigation has no influence on serum electrolytes and may induce improvements in symptoms without any effects on the intestinal microbiotia.” Those are the words of  Yoko Uchiyama-Tanaka who conducted studies with gut flora and colonics.

It might be hard to believe today with all that modern science has learned about gut health and the bowel over the past two decades that at one time it was suggested that the cause of the epidemic of global imbalanced gut flora was down to colonics.  That would mean that everyone in the western world – including new born babies –  somehow managed to find the opportunity to have colonic irrigation.

“Unfortunately, we as a society have reached a place
where we reflexively seek culprits to blame for our health challenges. ” (Perlmutter, 2011).


Gut flora live in deep pockets of the mucosal layer of the bowel wall called lumen which
means it lives deep inside the bowel wall. It makes sense that an organism that lives in a watery environment would be perfectly adapted to staying put in a watery environment, one which is constantly
moving and changing in the way that the bowel (gut) is. 

Can colonics wash away gut flora?

Not according to studies undertaken recentlyTo read more , the I-ACT website provides a literature section,  as well as global colonic irrigation training standard recognised internationally. 

Yoko Uchiyama-Tanaka says on the topic “Colonic irrigation has no influence on serum electrolytes and may induce improvements in symptoms without any effects on the intestinal microbiotia.” He goes on to say that “colonic irrigation was developed about 40 years ago, and no serious complications associated with its use have been reported.”

Where does gut flora actually live in the bowel?



Your body is made up of a high percentage of water

The bowel is no different. It would make sense therefore that the bowel (gut) is well used to water because absorbing water is one of its main functions. Naturally therefore the gut flora that live in your gut, and that has adapted for thousands of years is used to water.  If water could wash such flora away so too they might be washed away every time you have a bowel movement which is not the case. 

Imbalanced gut flora is directly linked to the use of anti-biotics used to fight disease over the last century. In the last century, it seems we’ve tried to shut nature out in a lot of ways, believing it harbours germs and deadly pathogens. After Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin, we as a society got stuck on the germ theory of disease.” (Perlmutter, D. 2011)

The bowel is constantly dealing with water. If a colonic could wash gut flora away, this really
would be a problem since the main function of the bowel is to draw water from feacal matter so
that it can become solid and ready for excretion. The suggestion that an organ designed for dealing with water could be harmed by water is a bit like suggesting that plants and flowers would be washed away by the rain, and that therefore it would be best not to water them. 


Your gut is your colon is your bowel is your large intestine. All of these four things refer to the
same organ. Your gut is not your stomach, which many people believe it is. The term gut health
means bowel health. At Dublin Vitality Centre clinics, we know that gut health forms the
structure on which your overall health. Imbalanced gut flora (the most familiar of which is
known as Candida) is extremely common due to incorrect use of anti-biotics and other
drugs.Imbalanced gut flora effects 90% of the population according to. Dr. David Perlmutter,
author of Brain Maker, The Power Of Gut Microbes to Heal And Protect Your Brain – For Life.
At Dublin Vitality Centre, the philosophy of wellness is to start with gut health to manifest improvements in the skin, wellbeing and mind in combination with healthy lifestyle and dietary changes. 

Are probiotics related to yogurt?

Not exactly. However, in the 1930s, a scientist named Minoru Shirota discovered that certain cultures lived in the gut (aka colon, bowel). He found that care of the gut (colon) promoted long life. So he developed a drink called Yakult which contained probiotics, the food stuff that the gut flora needed . Since then many companies have developed probiotics and some people have began to think that probiotics and yogurt are one and the same. The main thing to understand about probiotics is that any oral probiotic must by-pass the digestive system, a system designed to kill bacteria. They must make it to the bowel which is a long way from the mouth. That is why experts like Dr. Perlmutter say that the most direct way to re-populate gut flora is via a probiotic enema directly into the bowel. At Dublin Vitality Centre, we offer probiotic enemas because research has shown that the best way to get live probiotic gut flora cultures into the gut is by probiotic enemas.

What is the gut?

 Many people will point vaguely towards their tummy. But that’s not it at all. 

gut = colon = bowel = large intestine
