Michelle, you are truly amazing!
Every time I visited I leave with new information and knowledge and I’m grateful for your wealth of knowledge.
You are beautiful in and out and your expertise and professionalism is impressive.
A true inspiration!

I was told by a private gastroenterologist I had a dropped large intestine and will be on laxatives for the rest of my life (now 36) they were making me fee horrible and not getting rid of the full compacted problem. I spoke to Michelle and she put everything into perspective and assured me that she can help. I had my first appointment last night and wow it was fantastic, I was extremely nervous but Michelle calmed me down. I can honestly say she has changed my life already, I don’t feel bloated, tired, grumpy or in any pain and that is the first appointment. Chucked the laxatives away and believe Michelle can train my bowels to behave and act normal. I cannot recommend Michelle enough. Thank you so much. 😊

Was in a bad way and was feeling really bad. I contacted Eternal Being and talked through my problems with Michelle, and made an appointment. I got immediate relief and over a few sessions got back to normal from really bad inflammation. Michelle was brilliant and gave me great advice and treatment. I would highly recommend getting a consultation if you have any issues. Thanks Michelle. Richard 👍🙂

Michelle is so tuned in to your body and knows what it needs. I have regular colonic treatments and feel fantastic. After having major ankle surgery late November 2023, I had a lymphatic massage to help my body recover. AMAZING!!! Thank you so much Michelle

Where do I start to tell you my journey with Michelle at Eternalbeing. TBH I hadn't heard of EB it only came about when I was talking to a gym buddy and we started talking about feeling bloaty, irregular bowel movement. So I thought as I have had problems since being a young girl around the age of 5 when I really struggled to go to the toilet so I was injected in the bottom to help me. So when I looked into the services that EB do I was so excited to think there was someone out there who may be able to help me. I made the call I was very nervous but after a telephone conversation which lasted about half an hour I booked in with her. Well, what an experience that was. Never thought in a million years my issues, fears quickly went away. My first clonic liver cleanse was a little bit surreal. How can I just be so relaxed and able to pooh after a few reassuring words from Michelle. We laugh all the time she still says after 10 years LOOK at your pooh train. I will be honest I did suffer from a headache afterwards but Michelle did warn me this would happen but soon subsided. Lots of water and not too much food after the treatment. I was taken suppliments to help me with my daily routine. Vitamin D3,
Bifido and Fibre,live cultures supplement for women, zinc citrate,
Alway I use her own patches
BIO MAGNETIC this to help my joints as I work out everyday
Sleep patch as I was struggling but ATM I'm sleeping very well.
Now about. Michelle my pooh fairy. This women is so passionate about her work to help others, always around of you need advise. She's my hero and best of all Michelle listens to you. Never rushes you, if these are going to plan with your treatment she ensures we rest and then try again.
Honestly, if you're not too sure about having a treatment I can assure you you would not be disappointed. I love her my pooh fairy

After years of stomach bloating, cramps and pain. Taking medication to relive the symptoms.
I visited Michelle for the first time in January. I have not looked back since. I have not had to take any medication since.
I really felt listened to and I am so pleased I picked the phone up and made that call.
I have more energy and my overall health has improved so much 😊

I've been going for years, Michelle always helpful and achieves great results everytine !

I had suffered with minor gut issues on and off for years but put it down to diet. Past 6 months noticed a gradual increase in feeling bloated, fatigued and no energy or motivation to exercise. I improved my diet with organic produce where possible and did the obvious but still felt full, bloated and sluggish. I had heard of colonics before but had no knowledge of what they did or why you would have one. After some googling, Eternal Being popped us a ‘colonics near me’ and so I checked out their website which prompted a consultation with Michelle and then a colonic hydrotherapy with liver cleanse. Consultation phase was thorough and the colonic was no where near as invasive as I thought it would be nor embarrassing. The feeling of relief was almost euphoric after feeling yuk for so long and the aftercare with Michelle’s knowledge gives me confidence the investment in myself was worth it! All puns intended, Michelle really knows her s#%t!

Great service as always from Michelle. I come about once a quarter and always look forward to the treatment as you know your interests and treatment best practice always come first every time.

Wish I had discovered Eternal Being sooner! Michelle is an absolute STAR - she understands what I need and is never short on advice. Her treatments are brilliant and her reassuring nature allows you to be at ease no matter what the treatment. I would not hesitate to recommend Michelle and Eternal Being to my contacts.

Michelle is amazing!

She's so supportive, passionate, friendly and welcoming in her advise/practice.

Before I went to Michelle all I ever thought about my my stomach issues. All I ever talked about was my stomach issues. The discomfort was daily and progressively getting worse. After over 2 years of issues and getting no where through the NHS, I reached out to Michelle and after meeting her for our consultation I finally felt confident that this wasn't going to be forever and that there was hope. For the first time in 2 years someone had told me that they can help me instead of saying 'ots JUST stomach issues, it's JUST iBS.

The tests Michelle did came back with detailed, personal results and Michelle's gave clean instructions on how we can fix my gut health together.

She's super friendly and makes you feel instantly at ease at any appointment.

Thankyou Michelle ☺️💩

Another excellent treatment from Michelle, I have a taken advice from Michelle and had regular colonic treatments over the last 12 years in relation to my gut problems and bloating. Can I stress it is not an uncomfortable treatment as she is highly qualified in her area of expertise.
Well worth a consultation and a treatment if you are suffering in agony with your gut problems. Michelle is extremely qualified in this area and has more extensive knowledge than many GP’s. Michelle will listen to your problem and will get to the bottom of your issues.
Thanks again Michelle look forward to the next treatment in March.

Since giving birth to my son in Oct 2022 I have suffered with anxiety and stress that has severely impacted my digestive system. I've been going to Michelle at Eternal Being because she helped me out many years ago with gut issues and I knew she would be able to help me out this time also. She's so incredibly knowledgeable about pretty much everything but especially gut and poop related issues. She's so professional but also makes you feel so at ease, she's brilliant at what she does and she's made me feel like my pre pregnancy self again. The treatment itself is actually very relaxing and I feel rejuvenated afterwards. Thank you so much Michelle aka the poop fairy! xxx

I first contacted Eternal Being and spoke with Michelle in July this year . I was really struggling both emotionally with grief and with my health, feeling generally unwell, bloated , lethargic and just not well 🤧 having felt like this for many years I had settled for the fact that this was how I was always going to feel .
After a bad fall through being so tired and lethargic at the start of July and suffering several injuries including a fractured wrist, I decided it was time to at least try to change the way I felt . Eternal Being was the very first place I read about and something told me that this was a good place , how right I was . Michelle called me following my email and I could tell straight away what a lovely person she was and clearly very passionate about what she does . I had my first appointment and found Michelle to be very friendly, warm, caring, very straight talking and honest with a terrific sense of humour 😊( very important ). I booked in for my first colonic and like many people I had preconceived ideas of what was involved It was nothing at all like I imagined, the treatment room ( like all of Eternal Being) was really lovely , comfortable, warm , very private a really calming peaceful place for a treatment . Michelle is extremely knowledgeable and every step was explained and done with care. We laughed a lot and talked a lot as well Michelle is a wonderful therapist and I came away from my first session feeling already better within myself and very positive about another treatment . I think it is so important to be open minded about this type of treatment, this isn’t a one size fits all situation and Michelle works out a treatment plan for each client individually depending on what they need. I have had a gut analysis done and Michelle has got a treatment plan for me going forward ,I have had several sessions and can honestly say I already feel so very different, I have a better understanding as well of how the gut is so closely linked to emotional well being something I definitely didn’t realise before seeing Michelle . This is a journey and not a quick fix but I am so glad I have started on it after many , many years of just accepting how I felt . I can’t imagine doing it anywhere else or with anyone else . So Michelle thank you so so much I I look forward to continuing this journey with you 😊👍🏼

I've been coming to Michelle for almost 2 years now and she honestly changed my life. She is so knowledgeable and genuinely cares about her clients and her work. I really can't recommend her enough, she's just the best!

Brightening Your Days: How to deal with Seasonal Affective Disorder

7th December 2023

If shorter days and weather changes leave you feeling drained and blue, If you find yourself experiencing changes in mood, energy levels, or motivation during autumn and winter, you might be grappling with SAD or seasonal affective disorder. 

You need not worry, though, for there are numerous ways and coping mechanisms to help you navigate this challenging period. All you need to know is that you’re not alone; it is a very common form of depression that we’ve probably all experienced some time in our lives. So, read on to find out what seasonal affective disorder is, how it can affect you during the winter season, and what you can do to deal with it effectively.

What is seasonal affective disorder?

SAD is a form of depression or low mood that occurs in the autumn and lasts throughout the winter. That’s why you’ve probably heard it called winter depression. When you have SAD, you will experience “the blues” or a more downbeat mood as winter begins, with its shorter days. As the weather warms and the days become longer, your mood tends to improve and you feel lighter. 

What causes seasonal affective disorder?

Research has shown that SAD is linked to the reduction in sunlight, which is why it appears during the months of autumn and winter. Lack of sunlight disorients the hypothalamus- the base of the brain, which is responsible for a wide range of functions.

The malfunction of the hypothalamus leads to the disruption of the body’s circadian rhythm, the 24-hour clock that regulates how we function during sleeping and waking hours. This is probably due to the lowered levels of vitamin D, melatonin and serotonin, which are controlled by the hypothalamus. The lack of those precious hormones, along with the lack of Vitamin D, leads to feelings of depression, lack of energy and sleepiness, and the symptoms don’t stop here.

What are the symptoms of seasonal affective disorder?

Regardless of the causes of SAD, the signs and SAD symptoms typically include:

  • Low moods that don’t change
  • Feeling irritable, stressed, anxious or tearful
  • Avoiding socialising
  • Having difficulty concentrating
  • Increased appetite, particularly for carbohydrate-heavy foods
  • Gaining weight
  • Lethargy
  • Having tiredness or low energy
  • Lossing of interest in activities you used to enjoy

If you’ve experienced those symptoms, it’s time to alleviate them. Dealing with SAD might be difficult, but it is not impossible to beat. 

How to deal with seasonal affective disorder?

1. Consult a trusted healthcare professional

SAD needs to be diagnosed by a mental health or healthcare professional. So before you diagnose yourself, visit a healthcare professional you trust. The healthcare professional will do a screening to determine if you have SAD rather than another type of depression and guide you on the best ways to fight SAD.

2. Socialise

When we have SAD we simply don’t want to go out, and it’s normal since, in wintertime, we want to avoid the cold outside. But studies have found that there is a connection between emotional and social loneliness and depression so it is important to make an effort and stay connected with friends and family, even if it is difficult to meet in person.

Schedule a Google Meet with friends or call them on Viber. Try online activities such as board games or virtual movie nights. Joining online communities can also be a great way to stay connected. Consider taking advantage of virtual fitness classes or streaming your favourite shows together. Find ways to be creative with your virtual activities. Have fun and make memories together.

3. Exercise

Outdoor exercise is highly effective at alleviating SAD symptoms as it exposes the body to daylight. If it’s too cold to exercise outside, you can still hit the gym or use your home’s stationary bike. 

Generally, exercise is especially beneficial for people with mild to moderate depression, as it can boost their moods. It doesn’t matter what type of exercise you do, as long as it suits your body and you enjoy it. Therefore, if you can force yourself to start 15 to 20 minutes of walking, dancing, or yoga, it is sure to lift your spirit. Most importantly, you’ll be surprised to find out that you’ll get used to it. After a while, exercise will become your favourite activity since it releases endorphins that make you feel good. 

4. Increase your intake of Vitamin D

Make sure you get enough sunlight during the day, and incorporate vitamin D-rich foods into your diet. Salmon, mackerel, and sardines are the best sources of vitamin D, while other sources include egg yolks, red meat, and liver. You can also try a Vitamin D supplement, which makes it easier to manage and regulate intake levels, especially when natural sources or dietary changes aren’t sufficient to meet the body’s requirements. Alternatively, you can consider a Vitamin D injection which will help replenish quickly your vitamin levels and make you feel as good as new.

5. Increase your levels of serotonin and melatonin

There are lots of natural ways to boost serotonin and melatonin in your body. To increase melatonin, try foods like goji berries, cherries, salmon, or eggs. To increase your serotonin levels easily, consider taking a Vitamin B6 supplement.

6. Try phototherapy

According to the Mayo Clinic, with a phototherapy or light therapy box, you can alleviate the symptoms of SAD. A light therapy box mimics sunlight, causing a chemical change in the brain to lift your mood and ease other symptoms of SAD. All you have to do is sit in front of the light box for about 20 to 30 minutes within the first hour of waking up in the morning.

7. Indulge in a massage

Massage may help relieve the physical symptoms associated with depression, such as back pain, muscle aches, fatigue and sleeping problems. For example, a lava stone treatment combines relaxing warmth and refreshing coolness, encouraging the body to detox, re-energise, relax, and heal. 

8. Put a patch on

Wellness patches are the self-care innovation you should know. They provide your body with essential nutrients, plus they’re easy to apply. Need a boost? Pop on an energy patch and feel the power surge. Struggling to sleep? Let a sleep patch work its magic to lull you to sleep. These patches are simple, effective, and your body’s new best friends!

9. Use flaxseed oils

Flaxseed oils are high in omega-3 fatty acids and are known to improve mood status as they help to promote photon and electron activity within the body. Consult a healthcare professional for the option of using a flaxseed enema that leaves you with an enhanced feeling of calmness or a flaxseed oil supplement 

10. Maintain a schedule

Behavioral scientists believe that the most powerful tool in your arsenal is plan-making. Plan-making helps you deal with your problem by simply pushing yourself to follow through with your goals. So just keep a steady schedule of everything you do during the day. Program your sleeping schedule, work time, exercise and meals. 

In that way, you can tune your circadian rhythm and thus avoid overeating, improve your sleep and energy levels, and stay focused and productive throughout the day. Motivating yourself with it is the best thing you can do.

Bottom Line

Dealing with SAD is a journey that requires patience and self-compassion. With proper planning and execution, you will be able to manage your symptoms and reclaim your vitality. So don’t give up; start your journey to healing.
