ARCH in Action

ARCH 2018 AGM and Study Day was held on Sunday July 8th 2018

Venue:- Imperial College London

SIBO, Red Flags, and the Fungal World Within

ARCH was truly lucky to have two such motivational and inspiring speakers, both focusing on topics and treatment strategies which can make an almost instant difference to the well-being of our clients.

EY  DR ERIC YARNELL ARCH is very fortunate that Eric was in London during July and agreed to be one of our speakers, focusing on the topic of SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) along with treatment protocols. Eric also discussed Red Flags.
Dr Yarnell is a prominent Naturopathic Physician, prolific researcher and author based in Washington State, USA. He is currently a Professor at Bastyr University, Adjunct Professor, Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, Tempe, Arizona and practises as a Licensed naturopathic physician in Washington.

FG  FRED GILLAM - back by popular demand.  Fred shared his perspective on the integral role of the mycobiome, the fungal component of the microbiome, in modulating positive immune health, effectively assimilating nutrition from the diet and acting as a biological storehouse of the active compounds which are utilised by the human body in many processes to prevent disease. He shared his patients' experiences of treating Candida albicans with a special seasonal mushroom and using a fungal based technique for halting what is usually a terrible reaction to the accidental ingestion of gluten that may be of benefit to those suffering from NCGS and coeliac disease.
The mycobiome is a fascinating and diverse micro-universe, both inside and around us that we are only just beginning to understand. We hope you were able to join Fred at the ARCH conference for a journey through the human myco-biome, meeting some of the fungi that support our health and gaining some insight into how to keep the good, the bad, and the ugly in a state of equilibrium.

Helping ARCH members

Above all, ARCH is a community, and we are here for our members, whenever and however they need us. For example, some members have experienced problems with the Nightingale Collaboration targeting their websites, and ARCH has been there to support them with professional and legal advice. We can also advise on what you can and cannot say on your website and in your marketing material, based on ASA guidelines and our own legal counsel.

ARCH and social media

As well as the full redesign and rewrite of this website, ARCH is also active across a range of social media platforms, including Twitter (@archcolonics) and Facebook ( We regularly monitor YouTube for relevant videos to share with our members and search the world wide web for CPD opportunities. Very soon we will have two new blogs on this website, one for the clients and one for members only, we will also work to increase involvement and raise the profile of ARCH and colon hydrotherapy.

Links to our main social media accounts can be found at the top of our website pages.
