Everyday Habits That Will Help You Poop Regularly

According to GastroJournal, an estimated 16% of adults and 33% of adults older than 60 suffer from constipation. At Eternal Being, we like to think of our founder, Michelle, as the ‘Poo Fairy’, which means she can help you to get your gut working as it should and get your poop schedule back on track. So, say goodbye to constipation and hello to a regular poop schedule as we reveal everyday habits that will help you to poop regularly. 

Eating More Fibre

Foods containing fibre should be thought of as “rough” because they can help to move food through your digestive system. It’s recommended that you introduce 20-35 grams of fibre into your diet every day if you are constipated. 

Some examples of food containing fibre are:

  • Whole wheat bread
  • Brown rice
  • Carrots
  • Cucumbers 
  • Tomatoes 
  • Legumes

Hydrate

We all know that we’re supposed to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day, but did you know that drinking even more water could help you with your bowel movements. This doesn’t mean that you have to strictly stick to just water, however, as you can stay hydrated by upping your herbal tea and healthy juice intake as well.

Exercise

Get up and get moving your body to get things moving in your colon. Did you know that certain yoga moves can actually help with constipation? In fact, any exercise that relaxes your pelvic floor muscles can actually also help you to poop better. This is because exercises that put your hips and pelvic floor in a relaxed position can help you to relax during bowel movements. Some of these exercises include:

  • Child’s pose
  • Happy baby pose
  • Deep squat

Everything You Need to Know About Advanced Colonic Hydrotherapy

How can you benefit from an enema?

Does the word ‘enema’ scare the sh!t out of you? Well, that’s kind of the point! An enema is a liquid treatment most commonly used to relieve severe constipation. In this blog, we’ll talk you through what you can expect from all variations of an Eternal Being enema treatment and how it can benefit you. 

What is an enema?

At Eternal Being, we offer 5 different types of enemas:

Coffee Enema

When a coffee enema is used, the caffeine from the coffee is preferentially absorbed into this system and goes directly to the liver where it becomes a very strong detoxicant. It causes the liver to produce more bile* (which contains processed toxins) and moves bile out toward the small intestine for elimination. This seems to free up the liver to process more incoming toxic materials that have accumulated in the organs, tissues and bloodstream. The coffee does not go into the systemic circulation.

The coffee contains some alkaloids that also stimulate the production of glutathione-S-transferase, an enzyme used by the liver to make the detox pathways run. It is pivotal in the formation of more glutathione, one of the main conjugation chemicals, enabling toxins to be eliminated via bile into the small intestine*. So in other words, a coffee enema speeds up the detoxification process and minimizes the backlog of yet to be detoxified substances.

On completion, there is often an enhanced feeling of calmness and connectedness*.

Flax Oil Enema

A flaxseed enema is very useful for individuals who are unable to break down oils and utilise omega 3 fatty acids from flaxseed due to digestive difficulties. The oil helps to support the Lymph system.

According to Dr Johanna Budwig, the electrons of highly unsaturated fats from seed oils, which lie on the same wavelength as sunlight, are capable of drawing solar energy and storing it.

This may in turn have positive effects when treating SAD sufferers. Flaxseeds contain a high level of electron-rich unsaturated fats making it useful to start treatments with a flaxseed enema as it helps to promote photon and electron activity within the body. 

Aloe Vera enema

An Aloe Vera enema is ideally suited to any inflammatory condition within the digestive system. Aloe Vera is a moisturiser and soother so its presence in the enema can have an anti-inflammatory effect on the mucosa of the colon.

On completion, there is often a feeling of calmness and a positive effect on the skin.

Magnesium Enema

Magnesium is a muscle relaxant and is useful in the following situations:

  • The muscles have gone into spasm erg) back pain or heavy cramping following exercise
  • At the onset of a migraine if the early symptoms are neck and shoulder tension
  • To help relieve cramping on the onset of menstruation
  • Magnesium helps the muscles to relax

On completion, there is often a feeling of calmness within the body and pains/spasms often lessen or disappear

Chamomile Enema

A chamomile enema helps to calm the body and has a soothing effect on the liver. Chamomile is a sedative and when taken as an enema it will be absorbed via the haemorrhoidal vein and is transported to the liver via the portal blood system. Chamomile has a calming effect on the liver and the body. 

On completion of this technique, there is often a feeling of calmness, especially within the digestive system.

Benefits

An enema treatment can support weight loss, help remove toxins from your body, and improve your skin, immunity, blood pressure, and energy levels.

Lymph Drainage Massage Explained

While the name may sound intimidating, the procedure is often very pleasant. A Lymphatic drainage massage, which may also be known as manual lymphatic drainage, can actually relieve the swelling that happens when medical treatment or illnesses block your lymphatic system. In this blog, we will explain everything you need to know about this gentle, rhythmical treatment. 

Who can it help?

Due to the nature of the treatment, people who suffer from lymphedema and fibromyalgia could hugely benefit from this treatment. These health conditions can cause lymph fluid to build up and cause swelling in an individual’s system, which may be alleviated by a Lymph Drainage Massage. 

What is it? 

The strokes applied in manual lymph drainage are designed to stimulate the movement of the lymphatic fluids in order to assist the body in cleansing, reducing oedema (stagnant fluid, water retention), and promoting detoxification of tissues.

This is a gentle, rhythmical technique that removes inflammatory materials and toxins from the connective tissue, which enhances the activity of the immune system, reduces pain, and lowers the activity of the sympathetic nervous system.

In a treatment session with Eternal Being, each massage is completely tailored to you and your unique needs. This means we will use CBD and essential oils if needed. The aim of the treatment is for you to leave feeling relaxed and relieved. However, it is essential that before attending the clinic you have ensured that you are hydrated and have disclosed any medications and supplements you are taking as well as any existing health conditions. 

Additional Benefits

Lymph Drainage Massages have gained popularity due to their many potential health benefits. While we’ve already discussed how this treatment can help to reduce swelling, we haven’t yet addressed the many other benefits of Lymph Drainage Massages, some of which include:

  1. Maintaining blood circulation, body fluid balance, and immune functions.
  2. Increasing the Flow of Toxins Through the Body
  3. Reducing hardening or thickening of the skin
  4. Relaxing the body
  5. Improving the appearance of skin

Everything You Need to Know About Advanced Colonic Hydrotherapy

Everything You Need to Know About Advanced Colonic Hydrotherapy

Are you feeling lethargic and backed up? Then Advanced Colonic Hydrotherapy may be just what the doctor ordered. If you have never heard of Advanced Colonic Hydrotherapy, then you’re in the right place. We will take you through everything you need to know about Advanced Colonic Hydrotherapy in this blog. 

What is Advanced Colonic Hydrotherapy? 

Advanced Colonic Hydrotherapy, sometimes referred to as colonic irrigation, is a way to gently cleanse the body of any unwanted toxins and faecal matter. It will swiftly return the system to a healthy, natural rhythm.

Why Choose Advanced Colonic Hydrotherapy?

Colonic therapy can improve your physical and mental wellbeing and is an effective way to remove toxins that have built up in the body over time, which can cause several negative side effects such as:

  • Skin blemishes* 
  • Lethargy

By opting for a session with one of Eternal Being’s extensively qualified hydrotherapists, you will see a noticeable change not only in your physical condition but also in your mental self. Relieving the stress and weight of a blocked colon can also help to develop a much healthier outlook, which will lead to an increase in productivity and energy.

What to expect from your treatment

Your clinician will explain the procedure to you to ensure that you feel relaxed and informed. This will last for approximately 60 minutes (or 90 minutes, if you opt for one of our Deep Cleanse packages).

Once you’re happy, your clinician will begin the procedure, which involves introducing warm water to the colon through the rectum, with the occasional use of enemas, or herbal or pro-biotic implants, to aid the process where necessary. Your abdomen will then be gently massaged using specialised massage techniques to encourage the release of stored matter.

After the procedure has been completed, your clinician will then discuss recommended dietary changes with you, empowering you to make the most of your colonic treatment therapy and embrace the new lease of life it will bring.

The basics of Colonic Hydrotherapy and how you’ll benefit from treatment

Are you tired of feeling tired all the time? Are you suffering from stomach issues? Have you found that your toilet habits aren’t as regular as they used to be? You’ll be happy to hear that Colonic Hydrotherapy could be the answer to your troubles.

Naturally, due to the lifestyles we live and the food and drink we consume, our bodies build up toxic waste over the years. Storing this toxic waste in our bodies is not good for us, and it can lead to health problems later in life.

Did you know that the role of the colon in the digestive system is to absorb water and nutrients from food after it’s broken down by the small intestine? The leftover rubbish is then neutralised by the colon to make it safe so that it can continue its way through the body. The colon also produces essential vitamins such as Biotin and Vitamin K.

If you don’t take care of your colon, you’re risking contracting various health problems and illnesses. A poorly functioning colon can cause constipation, diarrhoea, insomnia, headaches and even depression. In severe cases, an unclean and poorly functioning colon can lead to colon cancer. This is why it’s so important to look after your colon and whole digestive system. A few small changes to your lifestyle could help to prevent many different health conditions associated with a poor functioning colon.

A person who appears to be healthy on the outside is not necessarily healthy on the inside. Filling up on the proper nutrients and drinking lots of water can help to keep your colon clean and healthy. In the same way, you take care of your skin or your hair, it’s essential to look after your colon, too!

What is Colonic Hydrotherapy?

Colonic Hydrotherapy or irrigation has been practised for many years and is a completely natural and safe treatment. The procedure involves inserting the nozzle of a device into the rectum to send water into the colon. The qualified hydrotherapist can control the pressure and temperature of the water, and the entire procedure usually takes around 45 minutes.

The treatment is essentially an internal bath, gently flushing out toxic waste and excess gases. Approximately 16 gallons of water will pass through the bowel, and the fluid can contain herbal infusions or coffee. These supposedly offer additional benefits, though there is little evidence of this. You don’t necessarily have to be suffering from constipation, diarrhoea or any other bowel irritations to undertake colonic hydrotherapy. It’s just a great way to take care of your health and well-being with regular treatments.

Depending on the results of your consultation, your therapist will recommend how many colon cleansing treatments you should undergo. This can vary from person to person and can be as little as just one treatment in a period of 1 to 3 months, or a course of up to 6.

Why do I need colonic hydrotherapy?

Individuals seek out colon cleansing for lots of different reasons. It could be that you’re experiencing health issues related to a poorly functioning colon or because you’ve heard the health benefits associated with colon cleansing and want to give it a try. 

Colonic Hydrotherapy has been proven effective for those suffering with:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhoea
  • Headaches
  • Backaches
  • Arthritis
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Skin problems
  • Problematic weight loss
  • Abdominal gas
  • Allergies
  • Bad Breath/Halitosis
  • Foul body odour
  • Menstruation problems
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Haemorrhoids
  • Asthma
  • Hypoglycaemia

How will I feel after colonic hydrotherapy?

Colonic Hydrotherapy is supposed to enhance the body’s natural processes of eliminating harmful substances. Unfortunately, some patients feel slightly unwell during the procedure, with some reporting symptoms of stomach ache, headache and fatigue.

This could indicate that the procedure is working and your body is effectively cleaning itself and flushing out the wasteful toxins. However Colonic Hydrotherapy is not a medicine, therefore it’s essential to remember that it may take some time, and a few sessions of treatment, to feel the full benefits.

The Benefits of Hypnotherapy

The Benefits of Hypnotherapy

It’s a new year and if one of your New Year’s resolutions is to stop smoking or to manage your weight, you may have come across the phrase ‘hypnotherapy’ but what exactly is it, and how can you benefit from it? In this blog, we want to discuss just that. 

What is Hypnotherapy? 

According to the NHS, Hypnotherapy can be defined as simply using hypnosis to try to treat conditions or change habits, but we like to refer to it as a person’s mind entering an altered state of consciousness, just like daydreaming. There are misconceptions about hypnotherapy sending you to sleep, but this is not the case. 

During this treatment, you will be awake but in a deep trance-like state. It’s this trance-like state that forces the subconscious mind to become extremely active and makes it more alert than it is during its usual awake state. At this point, your subconscious mind takes over from your conscious and is ready to facilitate great change.

How Does it Work?

Throughout the treatment at Eternal Being, you are in complete control of your Hypnotherapy session, so, if you decide to stop the treatment at any point, you are welcome to do so. During this procedure, your therapist will guide you by using professional techniques to achieve the results you desire. 

Your subconscious mind listens to your therapist’s voice in a subliminal way and when they talk directly to your subconscious mind in this deeply relaxed state, the positive suggestions automatically sit comfortably in your mind. When you come back into full conscious awareness these thoughts are enacted immediately.

Benefits of Hypnotherapy

Being open

One of the benefits of hypnotherapy is that the hypnotic state encourages a person to be much more open to suggestions. 

Stress and Anxiety

Stress and anxiety issues can often manifest themselves into physical and mental illnesses that impact your daily life. Relaxation techniques, like Hypnotherapy, have the ability to deal with your subconscious mind where deep-rooted, often suppressed, memories affect your body’s natural process – keeping you in that anxious state. 

Weight Management

Weight management can be hard, and keeping it off can be even harder, but hydrotherapy can help with this. Hypnotherapy for weight management helps to remove cravings as well as helping you to make positive, healthy food choices.

Smoking

If you’re struggling to quit smoking, hydrotherapy can help you. With unique, successful, and advanced hypnosis techniques you can finally stop smoking once and for all. In fact, hypnosis is widely recognised and promoted as a highly successful technique to help people stop smoking.

5 Yoga poses you can do from your desk!

It’s no surprise that spending 8+ hours a day sitting at a desk isn’t good for you and your body. Sitting in an office chair all day every day can lead to neck, shoulder and lower back pain. However, desk yoga could help to relieve stress and prevent injury. Here are five yoga exercises you can do from the comfort of your office desk…

  1. Desk Yoga Seated Crescent Moon

Begin by lifting your arms above your head, connect the palms and extend your fingers wide. Carefully lean to one side and take 2-3 deep breaths before repeating on the other side. The Crescent moon pose gives a deep stretch to your sides, lengthening your spine and allowing you to continue working with better concentration and focus.

  1. Chair Pigeon

Whilst sitting down, place one leg over the other at a 90-degree angle, flexing the foot so you don’t put pressure on the knee. Stay in an upright position and make sure you keep an even distribution on both seat bones. Hold for 5-10 breaths once you start to feel a gentle to moderate stretch in the upper outer thigh. Now repeat on the other side.

The seated pigeon pose opens the hips and chest and allows us to regain the balance we sometimes lose while sitting in our desk chairs.

  1. Desk Yoga Standing Seal Pose

This one starts in a standing position with your legs placed 3-4 feet apart. Inhale the arms behind you, intertwining your fingers together. Next, squeeze your shoulder blades together before folding forward at the hips and bringing your arms in front of you. Hold your legs and arms straight and try to control this pose for 4-8 breaths.

The standing seal pose stretches both the spine and legs while opening the shoulders. It also improved mental function, exactly what you need mid-afternoon at your desk, by harmonising the connection between the heart and mind.

  1. Desk Yoga Upward Dog

Begin this one in a standing position and place your hands roughly shoulder-width apart on the edge of a sturdy desk. Slowly walk your feet backwards while keeping your arms straight. Try to lean your hips towards the desk and open the chest as you do so. Hold the upward dog pose for 5-10 breaths. 

Posture can be greatly impacted while sitting over a laptop at a desk all day. This pose can help to open the chest and lengthen the spine, improving your posture.

  1. Restorative Pose

This pose is slightly different to the others but is just as important. when work gets stressful, it is essential to restore your mind and ground yourself. Place your feet flat on the floor and cross your arms to your desk. Lay your forehead down onto your arms and breathe deeply for up to 5 minutes. This pose will allow you to unwind while destressing at the same time.

Here at Eternalbeing, we are super passionate about health and wellbeing, so we hope you find Desk Yoga useful! Head to the Eternalbeing website today to read another blog and see how you can improve your health.
