Jeanette SnymanI have always had an interest in the medical/health environment and since I can remember I carried the wellbeing of people in my heart.

After I finished my degree in BA Publishing I went to work and live in the UK and it was during that time that I seriously started thinking about my career. It was also during this time that I became a fitness fanatic and was encouraged to become a personal trainer. I undertook a Personal Training diploma by following a correspondent learning course but I soon realised after returning to South Africa that personal training as a career is not financially feasible and I had to look for better options. An opportunity came along in a Marketing position and I soon became very interested in the aspects of Marketing and furthered my studies in Marketing & Marketing Management.

I have now been working for the South African Medical Association for almost 11 years and during the last couple of years I have been growing more and more the need and desire to broaden my horizons and that I must start to search for more opportunities.

Last year I went to visit a school friend of mine who has been living in the UK for more than 15 years. She started her own Colon Hydrotherapy Clinic (Kent Detox Clinic in 2011.

I was curious to know more about her business, how she started, the training she underwent and I asked her opinion on me opening up my own clinic in South Africa. She was very excited about the idea and encouraged me to do so. On returning to South Africa I started doing my own research on Colon Hydrotherapy, with special attention to the number of clinics available in south Africa and specifically in Pretoria and the surrounding areas where I stay.

As part of my research I went for my own first treatment and was absolutely amazed on how good I felt afterwards, Having had to rely on laxatives after since the birth of my son, it was complete bliss to experience the "natural way" and since my first colon hydrotherapy it has never been required for me to rely on any form of laxatives. This experience confirmed that I wanted to start studying as soon as possible.

Since starting my studies, the more I learn the more I have become fascinated in Colon Hydrotherapy and haw this therapy can bring joy to those suffering from digestive problems. I do believe I have the passion and the heart to encourage my clients to live healthier lifestyles.
