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!

6 Food and Drinks That Help with Bloating

We all can feel a little bloated, but some of us more than others. Bloating can cause issues such as constipation, excess gas, and discomfort. If you are one of the unlucky people that does experience bloating, try to exercise regularly, drink plenty of water, reduce your intake of fizzy drinks, alcohol, and caffeine, and try to keep away from foods you’re intolerant to.

This may sound like a lot, and if you don’t want to skip your daily caffeine kick, there are other ways to reduce bloating. Within this blog, 6 foods and drinks will be mentioned that could potentially help with your bloating symptoms. Read on to find out what they are.

Avocados are rich in vitamins, potassium, and fibre, which will help your digestion, supporting regularity and preventing constipation.

Berries, in particular strawberries, blueberries and blackberries are full of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals and are also high in fibre. Similarly to avocados, berries support the function and regularity of your digestive system. 

Green tea can be an acquired taste, yet it holds so many positive values. Green tea is known to be a natural laxative, stimulating movement within your digestive tract and regularity. Therefore, reducing bloating.

If you’re not keen on green tea, why not try a similar drink like Kombucha?

Kombucha may not be as common as green tea, but it still has some great benefits. Kombucha is a fermented drink, usually made from black or green tea. This tea can help you squeeze in some much-needed antioxidants into your diet to help beat bloating. 

This drink is rich in probiotics and can promote gut health and digestive regularity. 

Papaya, something that might not be on your daily meal plan, contains an important enzyme called papain. This enzyme helps break down amino acids, encouraging healthy digestion and helping keep bloating at bay.

Turmeric, something that is used in curries and soups, has a compound called curcumin. Through studies, this compound has been found to have anti-inflammatory values, improve gut health and reduce symptoms of IBS.

These are only 6 products that can only help with bloating. But some other key things are to remember to eat slowly with your mouth closed, reducing the ingestion of air; drink plenty of water; reduce your intake of fizzy drinks; alcohol, and caffeine.

The Secrets Behind Irish Sea Moss

You may have heard about the Irish sea moss from the wonders of social media or as an old wives tale, well this blog is to help you understand the benefits of eating this superfood.

Sea moss is known as a type of algae, and could potentially be the answer to improving your skin and digestion.

Irish sea moss has been recently spoken about through social media and largely used by celebrities like Kim Kardashian. However, this isn’t a newfound food, it has been around for many years. However, it had a renewed debut when it was put into body lotions and masks, powders, and pills. 

What is it?

Irish sea moss is a type of red algae and is thought to improve the health and appearance of your skin. Although there isn’t a lot of science backing the algae, experts have been suggesting that there are advantages to consuming the product. 

In many cultures, it has been used for centuries, as mentioned previously. In places like Ireland, Scotland, and Jamaica, it was used to enhance your immune system and fight off colds. 

How do you consume it?

Many people are likely to eat this as a gel, instead of it on its own. It has recently been popular for celebrities to use it in smoothies. Other cultures drink it as tea, with milk and a sweetener such as sugar or honey. However, due to the unusual taste, it has been made into powder and pill form to make it easier to consume.

What are the benefits?

So now you have a larger understanding of the background of Irish sea moss, it’s time to learn the benefits of ingesting the substance.

Gel-like substance or in a smoothie:

When in either of these forms, the sea moss can soothe your respiratory and digestive tract, helping with your stool movement. It has been found not to taste anything prominent so it can also be used as a thickening agent.

Past research found sea moss to be a prebiotic, a dietary fibre needed as fertilizer for probiotics – also known as healthy bacteria in your gut – and therefore helps your gut movement and general health.

From a study in 2015, “sea moss’ prebiotic effects improved their gut microbiome, which led to heightened immunity.” 

Lots and lots of nutrients:

This may not come as a surprise, due to the fact that sea moss is sounding pretty beneficial right now, but it does also include a high amount of immune-boosting nutrients. For example iron, magnesium, zinc, and phosphorus. 

Benefits of applying:

When applied on the skin it has been found, by Joshua Zeichner, M.D., director of cosmetic and clinical research in the department of dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, that it helps soothe the skin of inflammation and lower levels of microorganisms on the skin. This is due to the product being rich in sulfur.

Zeichner also adds that “sea moss also contains vitamins and minerals like magnesium, vitamin A, vitamin K, and omega-3 fatty acids”, this is beneficial as it supports the hydration of your skin and promotes healthy skin cell function.

So there you go, you should now have a deeper understanding of why celebrities are using Irish sea moss within their diets, and maybe why you should too!

The Importance of Gut Health Explained

In today’s blog, we are going to look into the importance of your gut health. As well as giving you some background information on what your gut is, so you’ll leave today with a well-rounded understanding of your gastrointestinal system, as a whole. 

The purpose of our gut

Your gut or gastrointestinal system consists of your stomach and intestines. The main purpose of this system is to break down the food we have consumed and absorb the correct nutrients (proteins, vitamins, carbohydrates, minerals, and fat) that will support the function of our body. For example, the production of energy to hormones. So in simple terms, if your gut health isn’t up to scratch your whole body will be affected. 

Another purpose of your gut is to coordinate with your immune system to fight any external pathogens. For example: viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites. Within this process, your gut supports your immune system to learn what are beneficial and harmful bacteria. This is an important task, enabling your body to know what to fight off.

The bigger picture

Your gut health is linked to your overall well-being. Example symptoms such as stomachaches or abdominal pains can affect your day-to-day life and ability to complete tasks. Having health conditions such as Crohn’s disease, Celiac disease or gut cancer will also have a significant impact on your body and overall being.

Trying to improve your gut health can reduce the risk of your having various conditions such as:

Autoimmune Diseases:

This is characterised by having a weak immune system, leading to healthy cells within your body being attacked. 

Example: Rheumatoid arthritis.

Metabolic Diseases:

This is known to be a combination of “diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity.” 

Examples of symptoms of metabolic syndrome: are being overweight, or having a lot of fat around your stomach area; high blood pressure and not being able to control your blood sugar levels.

However, having a healthy gut and having beneficial bacteria in your system can help prevent these diseases. 

Ways to improve your gut:

Taking probiotics: this will contain the much-needed microbiome that your gut needs.

Getting your 8 hours of sleep: this may seem to be over-talked about. However, if you aren’t getting enough sleep it could lead to an imbalance of hormones, meaning there is potential for the stress hormone “cortisol” to rise. Therefore, this can cause intestinal permeability issues, meaning “food and toxins are able to pass through the intestine and into the bloodstream”. 

The main side effects are bloating, stomach pains, and inflammation.

Exercise regularly: this will help prevent problems and increase blood flow to muscles, including the muscles in your stomach. Furthermore, allowing the food consumed to keep moving.

Let’s talk about our burps and what they say about us!

The topic of gas might be seen as an off-the-table topic of conversation. However, talking more about our gas, particularly our burps, can enable us to understand our health better. In turn, this blog aims to allow you to notice your burps, understand what they mean and how you can improve your health from them. 

So let’s get one thing straight, EVERYONE BURPS! But burping in excess could be a signal that something more serious is wrong. 

Here is what three different types of burps could mean:

  1. After Finishing Your Meal

 If you have just finished a particularly large meal, it is common for you to burp. This is because larger meals can cause gastrointestinal distress.

According to research from the Australian Academy of Science, a normal adult’s stomach is likely to hold 1 litre of food and liquid in a meal, comfortably. However, if you indulge in extra helpings, your stomach expands to make room for the additional food. It has been found that your stomach can hold up to 4 litres of food and drink!

Gastroenterologist, Rebecca Tsang, MD, MPH, explains that “When you eat larger meals, you’re increasing the pressure in your stomach … the gas in your stomach has nowhere to go but up into the oesophagus and then out of your mouth”, this is what we know as a burp.

  1. Ingesting Air

It is likely when you eat, you ingest some air. However, if you are eating faster than you should, you will likely be swallowing more air than usual, which can make you burp. Therefore, eating slowly can reduce the amount of air ingested, and reduce the amount of burping after a meal.

However, it is important to point out that, eating slowly and being mindful of the speed of your eating could still cause ingestion of excess air and lead to burping. According to research from UpToDate, the medical term for this is aerophagia, this can be in the form of bloating and/or burping. This can be mainly caused by chewing gum, smoking, or hyperventilating (or an anxiety attack).

Therefore, you are likely to ingest unwanted air throughout day-to-day life, maybe try to limit the things that cause this, such as smoking, chewing gum, or eating too fast.

  1. Bubbly Beverages

We all love a fizzy drink or alcoholic fizzy beverage. However, these drinks include carbon dioxide. This may sound dangerous, but it isn’t. It is a colourless gas that is safe to drink. Yet, the downside of it is it can lead to constant burping!

Fun Fact: Drinking through a straw can lead you to ingest more air, than drinking normally.

In turn, it is important to understand that if you enjoy a fizzy drink, have them in moderation. 

So, to take away from this blog, be careful of your eating and drinking habits, as they could be causing ingestion of additional gas, which causes you to feel uncomfortable and burp.

Our Top Tips To Improve Your Digestion

It is a well-known fact that what you eat directly affects your digestion, you should ‘eat well to feel well’. At the end of the day, what you eat will become a part of you. However, do you know what else you should be doing for good digestion? This blog will give you all of our top tricks and tips on how to improve digestion. 

Would you prefer a boring, beige plate of chicken nuggets or a bold and vibrant plate of colourful vegetables? Let’s hope it is the vegetables as this ‘real’, fresh food has many more benefits for your digestion. 

Good digestion is so important, as during digestion your body absorbs vital nutrients that it needs. This means, that even if you have a super healthy and nutrient-packed diet, if your digestion still isn’t very good, your body won’t be absorbing as much of the all-important nutrients that can affect your whole body, anything from mental health to your energy levels. 

Ever wondered why you have digestion problems? Digestion problems can be from a whole list of reasons, from being sensitive to certain foods to having unhealthy habits, not having enough exercise or day-to-day pressures such as stress. Stress can majorly affect your digestion; your gut is dubbed to be your second brain due to how closely they are linked. For example, when you are really stressed, your body will focus its energy on dealing with the stress and putting the stress response into action,  pushing processes like digestion further down its priority list, to wait until the stress has disappeared. 

In fact, digestion problems can be from a combination of reasons, along with leading to bloating. These digestion problems are leading to you not completely absorbing nutrients, something you want to avoid.

How can I improve my digestion?

  1. Exercise! 

Whether that’s a morning jog, or something with less impact like yoga, incorporating more exercise into your lifestyle will help to reduce your levels of stress and release feel-good endorphins. You might surprise yourself and find that you quite enjoy it!

  1. Eat your meals slowly.

Ensure you are sufficiently chewing each bite, try to do it until it’s a different texture than the texture that it entered your mouth. Rushing your food will not help your digestion; your body needs time to process and digest it.

  1. Focus on eating.

When you are eating, focus solely on eating and nothing else. Don’t watch TV or distract yourself, instead focus on eating and having proper conversations. This will allow you to completely focus on eating, making you more mindful of what you consume.If you have liked reading this blog and want more digestion tips and trips, click here to read our other blogs.

Do you understand your gut health?

It can be difficult to understand your gut health, where things are going wrong and what can be done about it. Unsurprisingly, it can be easy to notice an unhealthy gut, but do you know what to do about it? This blog will help you understand your gut health and how you can improve it.

The Gut Microbiome

Your gut microbiome is basically all of the organisms in your intestines, they are known as microorganisms and we have over 200 different types! Although you may think they are bad for you, most of them are extremely important to your body’s health and its functions. In fact, a wide range of gut bacteria can reduce the chances of conditions like diabetes.

How it impacts your health

Your gut is an impressive yet complicated system, which links to a range of other systems inside your body, from your mental health to your immune system and much more. Therefore, the more beneficial microorganisms you have, the more improvements you can see in your general health and wellbeing.

The signs of bad gut health

From taking certain medications like antibiotics to feeling stressed and having little sleep, so much of everyday life can have a large impact on your gut health. This might change your weight and hormone levels, things that are directly linked to your gut health.

The most common signs are intolerances to foods, autoimmune issues, skin conditions, issues with sleep, weight loss or gain, having a diet full of sugar, and stomach problems, to name a few.

What can I do to improve this?

  • Eat less sugary foods
  • Get yourself tested for intolerances to foods
  • Start taking probiotics
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Try to eat slower
  • Get plenty of sleep
  • Reduce your stress

What you eat directly impacts your gut health. To improve your gut health try and eat foods that are packed full of fibre, such as whole grains and nuts, as well as fermented foods like kimchi. Similarly, garlic is also known for helping gut function and foods full of collagen are also known to be beneficial.

We hope this blog has helped you understand your gut health, and hope you can now use these tips to notice when your gut health is declining and what you can do to get it back on track.

5 Ways Lemon Water Can Be Beneficial To You

Having a slice of lemon in your water comes with many health benefits. Starting your day off with fresh lemon water, before any breakfast, will provide you with many different health benefits for your skin, digestion, and general body function. 

It has been found, by many nutritionists, that getting into this healthy daily routine at the start of the day, on an empty stomach will support your body in the following ways:

Improved Digestion:

It has been found that lemon juice stimulates your digestion, this means an increase in the production of your hydrochloric acid (HCI). HCI is important as it activates the non-digested food (pepsinogen) and turns it into enzymes, which is also known as pepsin. After this, the protein from the food is then digested. HCI’s main process is to kill viruses, bacteria, and parasites that have entered the food. Therefore, the enhancement of HCI is clearly beneficial. 

Decreases Constipation:

If you have a slow movement in your digestive system or gut, this could be due to low acid and/or enzymes. This, inevitably, will slow the digestive process which is conducted by your gut, therefore resulting in constipation. Drinking lemon water will promote movement within your gut, as it will provide the missing acid and stimulate the production of HCI, which will enhance your pepsinogen turning into enzymes. 

Increases Bile:

Heard of bile? I know, it is usually a topic left out of an everyday conversation, but having lemon water in your daily ritual will support your liver’s functions of bile production. You might ask why this is important? Well, bile production will support the digestive process, breaking down the fatty acids which are left in the digestive tract.

Reduces Bloating:

If you suffer from bloating, a fresh lemon squeezed into your morning glass of water is for you. Another drink you might want to drink is Turmeric Green Tea. Both of these drinks are the perfect anti-bloat drinks, just make sure not to have too many in a day.

Makes Your Skin Glow:

After several weeks of having this drink in your routine, it will show the external benefits. Your skin is likely to be brighter, with a reduction in blemishes. But how does this work you ask? Well, your digestive system and liver are connected to the health of your external organ, your skin. If you suffer from Eczema then, this is likely to be in your healing plan.

Now, many people are always asking questions about if the acid lemon can erode your teeth. The truth is, yes. However, it is unlikely it will erode your teeth from this drink alone. Within our daily lives, we ingest many different kinds of food and drinks that will do the same, such as coffee and fizzy drinks. 

If you feel nervous about this, why not brush your teeth afterward, or wash your mouth with water? Or even use a straw to drink your lemon water, so it is less likely to hit your teeth.  

Overall, it has been proven that drinking your daily lemon water should definitely be a part of your morning routine. Just be careful not to use artificial lemon juice, as this rarely has the essential components to help your body become healthier. So make sure to have fresh lemon, and enjoy it!

Beating the Bloat

Who hasn’t been there, you’re enjoying one of your favourite meals or a new dish at your favourite restaurant, and then you are met with that all too familiar feeling of bloating. If you know this feeling all too well, this blog is definitely for you.

Bloating is normal, you’re not alone…

We want to start off by letting you know that bloating is normal and lots of people experience bloating. It happens when our digestive tract is filled with gas. The causes of bloating may differ between people, but usually bloating is caused by our body’s natural digestive process.

This doesn’t necessarily mean that you should ignore the bloating as it may be down to a genuine food intolerance, which can be very painful and uncomfortable. So, if you are experiencing persistent pain and other symptoms, for example:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Constipation/diarrhoea (or any changes to bowel movements) 
  • Weight loss 

along with the bloating then it is important to speak with your Doctor.

Easing Bloating

If you don’t have any pain or major discomfort associated with bloating, then the best thing to do is to try to change how we think and feel about it. You need to remind yourself that bloating is completely normal and that most people experience it at some point in their life. It is a completely natural process during digestion and it will pass. Having said that, here are things you can do to beat the bloat. 

Are you eating enough?

If you’ve got a certain outfit that you want to wear, it can be very tempting to not eat throughout the day, but, if you’re trying to avoid bloating, this is the worst thing you can do. Food restriction can actually contribute to, or even exacerbate, bloating by slowing down digestion, which then lowers the production of important digestive enzymes and decreases the production of healthy gut bugs.

Stress Management

Do you feel more bloated when you’re stressed? This may be because stress has a significant impact on our gut health. This is because it can make the nerve endings in our digestive tract more sensitive, which causes a greater level of discomfort as a response to the distension in our gut that is associated with bloating.
