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 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!

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 😊👍🏼

How gut health affects your skin

1st March 2024

Acne, eczemas, psoriasis…there are numerous skin conditions that affect us during all stages of life and countless ways we are trying to fight them. From a new moisturising cream to laser and light treatments, we go to huge lengths to keep our skin healthy. However, despite these efforts, the root cause underlying your skin concerns may remain elusive, and in that case, the problem returns.

Many of these conventional treatments, such as medications or topical remedies, are only partially effective since they address symptoms rather than root causes. So, could the answer to healthy, beautiful skin lie not in the remedies but elsewhere? Research shows that skin health goes to the stomach. Let us explain why.

The gut-skin axis

The gut can affect our skin; in scientific terms, this is something we call the gut-skin axis. The gut-skin axis refers to the bidirectional communication between the skin and gut microbiome via complex interactions with the immune system to regulate systemic and local inflammation.

It may be hard to digest this fact, but research reveals that the microbiome of tiny organisms colonising our digestive tract can help or harm our skin. Taking it apart, a healthy gut contains healthy flora that helps prevent inflammation. If the flora is out of balance, it cannot fight intestinal bacteria that enter the bloodstream, accumulate in the skin, and disrupt the skin microbiome.

The link between skin conditions and an unhealthy gut

Surprisingly, about 70% of the immune system is housed in the gut. The gut microbiome is responsible for processing and absorbing nutrients, fighting pathogens, and regulating the immune system, so maintaining a healthy gut microbiome is essential for maintaining overall health and, of course, skin health.

Acne

Acne is often associated with puberty and raging hormones, but acne can flare up at any age, even during perimenopause. This is because acne can be triggered by leaky gut syndrome, poor gut microbiome, and constipation. Daily bowel movements are essential in ensuring that wastes and toxic stuff are excreted efficiently through our digestive tract. In the case of a dysfunctional bowel, the body will attempt to eliminate it through an alternative means, which often results in pore obstruction. 

Patients often present with spots that they identify as ‘under the skin’ when there may be an issue with detoxification or elimination. So, next time acne appears, pay attention to your digestion. 

Rosacea 

An imbalanced microbiome may also be a contributing factor towards rosacea, which is a common chronic inflammatory disease. Studies have shown that an imbalance in the microflora found in the small intestine is 10 times more prevalent in acne sufferers than in healthy controls. In addition, there is a connection between poor digestion of food and rosacea, although more research is needed.

In this context, many gastrointestinal diseases have been linked with Rosacea, including inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease, irritable bowel syndrome, gastroesophageal reflux disease, Helicobacter pylori infection, and small intestine bacterial overgrowth.

Psoriasis 

Psoriasis is an inflammatory autoimmune chronic condition characterised by loose, silver-coloured scales, which can crack and bleed in severe cases. It is a disease characterised by a leaky gut as bacteria absorbed from the gut directly affect the liver and skin. 

People with psoriasis are nearly three times more likely to develop celiac disease. If you watch for signs of digestive issues such as diarrhea, belly cramps, and blood in your poop, then it’s probably your gut.

Eczema

Similar to psoriasis, eczema is characterised by inflamed, red rashes and patches of the skin. It can affect the ‘inner’ areas of the body, such as the inner arm, groin, behind the knees and around the eye. 

Food allergens play a role in the development of atopic eczema, especially since the condition is associated with the dysfunction of the immune system. Understanding and addressing these dietary triggers can be pivotal in effectively managing and mitigating the symptoms of atopic eczema, offering relief and improving the overall quality of life for those affected by this condition.

Is my skin problem related to my gut issues?

An unhealthy gut may not always be the root of skin problems. Still, there is a significant link, so if you have a skin condition, you can start by changing your diet to rebuild your gut microbiome, keep inflammatory response regulated, and keep digestive function optimal.

Clear skin starts from the gut

A clear, radiant complexion isn’t just about what you put on your skin—it begins from within, in the intricate ecosystem of your gut. The saying “you are what you eat” rings especially true when it comes to skin health, as emerging research continues to emphasise the profound connection between gut health and skin appearance. 

Beyond topical treatments and skincare routines, nurturing a healthy gut lays the foundation for vibrant, blemish-free skin. In this exploration, let’s delve into the steps to keep your gut healthy.

  1. Get a microbiome test

In spite of the fact that certain symptoms, such as indigestion, mood swings, and skin diseases, may indicate imbalances in the gut, the exact causes can only be determined through testing.

At eternalbeing, we offer a series of tests, including a lab gut microbiome test that shows the types and amounts of microorganisms in the gut and provides knowledge about the overall state of your gut. We also offer advanced gut dysbiosis testing, leaky gut syndrome testing, parasite testing, and coeliac disease testing.

  1. Test for food intolerance

Foods that your body is sensitive to cause an inflammatory response in your skin, resulting in chronic skin issues such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Food sensitivities are perhaps the easiest way to fix our diet’s effect on our skin. Most people, however, are unaware of their food sensitivities their whole lives. 

A food intolerance test identifies specific foods or ingredients that your body has difficulty digesting or absorbing, as well as whether you are really allergic to a food or just sensitive to it.

  1. Eat more probiotics and prebiotics 

Probiotics and prebiotics help maintain the health of your gut. Probiotics are foods or supplements like yogurt and sauerkraut that contain live microorganisms that help maintain or improve the “good” bacteria. Prebiotics are typically high-fibre foods that act as food for human microflora and can improve the balance of the microorganisms. By consuming foods or supplements such as Sporegone or Cyto-Biotic Active you support your gut and skin health.

  1. Reduce the intake of inflammation-causing foods

To optimise gut health, it’s crucial to reduce the consumption of inflammatory foods like alcohol, processed carbohydrates, gluten, and charred foods. Consistently consuming highly processed foods loaded with sugars and unhealthy fats devoid of nutrients not only dulls the skin’s appearance but also hampers collagen production and triggers inflammation throughout the body, exacerbating skin issues.

  1. Opt for a diet rich in antioxidants and Omega 3

When it comes to promoting skin health, the focus lies in incorporating a diet abundant in antioxidants, amino acids, and collagen, complemented by the inclusion of healthy fats reminiscent of the Mediterranean diet. 

These nutrients are essential for the nourishment and revitalisation of our skin. Omega-3 fatty acids play a significant role in reducing inflammation and hydrating skin cells, particularly beneficial for conditions like eczema and psoriasis. Integrating fish into your diet three times a week, along with sources of omega-3 such as walnuts, flaxseed, hempseed, and other healthy fats like avocado and almonds, can contribute to healthier, more radiant skin.

  1. Practice stress management

Stress can sometimes be the root cause of skin issues as it can disrupt the microbiome, causing inflammation that can manifest on the skin as acne, rosacea, psoriasis, and more.

Your body’s chemical response to stress makes your skin more sensitive and reactive. Additionally, stress can make skin problems harder to heal and can cause gut issues, which is why many people break out more when stressed.
