Great service! Michelle was so welcoming and friendly and is passionate about making people feel their best! Will be recommending and revisiting 😊
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!
Thank you for all your help and ongoing help. You’ve helped me in ways I can’t even help myself (haha)
Highly recommended and an investment into your health and wellbeing.
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 😊
Great Treatment Michell. Thanks.
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!

How to stop bloating

22nd January 2024

Bloating is the sensation of having a full stomach, often accompanied by abdominal distension, that makes us all feel uncomfortable. If you’re worried that you are the only person who suffers from bloating and try to hide it, you shouldn’t. Bloating affects everyone at some point in their lives, so there’s no need to be ashamed. On the other hand, if what really worries you is how to stop bloating, we’ll explain everything in this blog post.

What are the common causes of bloating?

Bloating occurs when your stomach is full or stretched and is usually caused by too much gas in your digestive system, these are the most common reasons:

  • You ate too much and too fast to digest properly. 
  • You might have a specific food intolerance or gastrointestinal (GI) disease. 
  • You have difficulties digesting particular carbohydrates (sugars) such as fructose and the carbs in wheat and beans.
  • You may have small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), which occurs when gut bacteria from the colon overflow into the small intestine.
  • You may have. IBS and functional dyspepsia, which means that your body struggles more with digestion for unexplained reasons
  • Yeast infection in the large intestine, this is more come than ever these days
  • Constipation causes putrefaction and the gas caused from waste breaking down causes extra gas 
  • Dehydration (this is the odd one) the less water you drink the more the body tries to hold on to it and can make some people look swollen. . 

How can you stop bloating?

Identify the root causes of bloating

What is causing your bloating? If you want to reduce bloating, then you need to identify correctly the causes.  Bloating is triggered by many dietary and lifestyle factors,  while in some cases, bloating may result from a medical condition. 

Bloating can be a symptom of inflammatory bowel diseases, such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis by irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and even gynecological conditions, such as endometriosis and ovarian cysts. If bloating lasts for a few hours, it’s usually nothing to worry about, but if you’ve been feeling bloated for 3 weeks or more, you need to discuss the symptoms with your doctor.

Check for lactose intolerance 

A very common cause is lactose intolerance. People with this condition experience bloating, abdominal pain, flatulence, and belching when drinking and eating dairy products. If you suspect you are lactose intolerant, you need to take a lactose intolerance test to confirm the diagnosis and refer to a healthcare specialist to learn how you should change your diet and monitor your lactose intake.

Lactose intolerant people must eat dairy products with naturally lower levels of lactose, such as hard cheeses and yogurt, and even lactose-free and lactose-reduced milk and milk products. 

Limit foods that trigger bloating 

Foods play a major role in bloating, and there are certain foods that cause excess gas. The long list of foods includes but is not limited to broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, peas, apples, and pears, as well as wheat-based and fatty foods.  So you need to observe which foods are causing you the bloading and consider eliminating your daily intake.

Try foods and drinks that reduce bloating

Instead of consuming foods that trigger bloating, you can increase your intake of foods and drinks that help with constipation and excess gas, such as green tea, kombucha and turmeric.

You can also opt for a low FODMAP Diet. This diet avoids fermentable carbohydrates, which do not get absorbed and ferment in the colon. Meat, almond milk, rice, quinoa, oats, eggplant, potatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, grapes, oranges and pineapples are just a few of the produce you can add to your diet.

Make sure you’re taking probiotic supplements

Probiotics may help reduce bloating and other digestive symptoms by boosting the number and types of healthy bacteria in your gut. In turn, this may reduce bloating and other symptoms common to IBS. Probiotics can be found in foods such as yogurt, sauerkraut, kefir, and kimchi. Eating a probiotic-rich diet may improve your overall digestive health and reduce IBS symptoms.

Avoid swallowing too much air 

Aerophagia is a medical term used to describe swallowing too much air while eating, drinking, or even running. You may also have aerophagia if you have sleep apnea. The gas entering the stomach and digestive system is the leading cause of aerophagia.

Aerophagia symptoms can be reduced – and even eliminated – with a few lifestyle changes:

  • Eating slowly in a relaxed environment
  • Eating with your mouth closed
  • Taking small bites and chewing food thoroughly
  • Avoid chewing gum or drinking with a straw
  • Focus on your breath and try breathing slowly and deeply
  •  before taking another one
  • Put the phone down, turn off the TV both of these have been shown to lower stomach acid and reducing the digestive effect

Exercise more

Exercising may reduce bloating by moving some of that built-up gas through your digestive system. So, as tempting as it may be to stay in bed after a large meal that leaves you feeling full and bloated, get up and walk! Exercises that strengthen the abdominal muscles are beneficial. So try a few yoga poses if you don’t want to go for a walk.

The bottom line

There are a number of factors that contribute to bloating, including diet, lifestyle, and health concerns. Working with a healthcare professional to identify the cause and make significant dietary changes is the best way to ensure that your nutritional needs are met. If you have any questions regarding gut health, do not hesitate to contact us.

Bloating FAQs

Can excessive stress cause bloating?

Stress may have worsened your symptoms lately if you’ve been under a lot more pressure than usual.  Your stomach and abdomen are deeply affected by anxiety, sleep loss and several other anxiety-related symptoms.

If stress is causing your bloating, you need to discuss this with a professional. However, there are a few things you can do to debloat your stomach today or prevent bloating, such as taking peppermint oil capsules, psyllium husks, herbal teas and magnesium.

Can you get unbloated in 5 minutes?

To get unbloated, you need to let trapped gas out. Try a 5-10 minute walk or other physical activity, such as yoga, which can get the bowels moving and help them release excess gas and stool. You can also practice diaphragmatic breathing to relax the muscles and expel gas. 

Is it normal to feel bloated every day?

Nearly everyone experiences a gassy feeling deep inside their abdomen now and then. Some people, however, suffer from chronic bloating, which is painful and ongoing. Experiencing constant bloating is not normal and may have many causes, so you should call your healthcare professional, especially if symptoms are accompanied by diarrhea, severe abdominal pain, bloody stools, unintended weight loss, chest discomfort, or loss of appetite. 

These could signal an underlying condition​, such as gut dysbiosisleaky gut syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) , Candida overgrowth or Crohn’s disease. Visiting a healthcare professional can help diagnose and treat any underlying conditions and provide advice on managing symptoms.
