A True Secret to Digestive Problems - 19th Dec 2016

A True Secret to Digestive Problems


Yesterday I got a message on facebook from a friend how he overcame deep gut pain and how for years this just got worse and worse. After trying many wholelistic practitioners he was told “that the Ileocecal valve, the joining between small and large intestine stopped functioning . He had blocked sinuses and his immune system was going downhill.He had been told by a healer it was due to an overload of pushing the body, constantly to the edge, especially through years of practising Yoga in such a way that created immense stress and tension in his belly and solar plexus. It also appeared that he held on a deep Sadness, personal and from the collective. She also spoke about absorbing energetic residues from participants in the group room, while he was holding the space (never thinking of protecting himself)…

The light went on in my head about the link of this illeocecal valve, the psoas muscle and craniosacral and digestion. So I spent a few days researching.

You can have a problem of an open valve which causes a regurgitation of colon contents and diarrehea.Sometimes a closed valve might be related intestinal yeast overgrowth (or candida), parasites, protozoa, bacterial and viral infections in the intestines. This can be the cause or result of insufficient “good” bacteria in the gut. Comes down to excessive sugar, refined carbohydrate, and/or fruit consumption; food contamination, and drinking chlorinated water, with gut flora problems.. Symptoms would be anything that accompanies constipation, such as bloating, abdominal cramps, flatulence, fatigue, general poor digestion, headaches, halitosis, low back pain, etc..

Then there is the psoas muscle known to hold emotions particulary fear.The psoas is the main muscle that responds to the sympathetic nervous system during the flight or fight response in the body.  When startled or under mental or emotional stress, the psoas contracts.Criticism from a friend, a close call in traffic, an ongoing disagreement with your partner, general anxiety—all of these elicit a contraction in the psoas muscle. This is felt as a tightening in the gut, a hunching of the shoulders and a collapsing in the chest and heart. These feelings if not expressed and thereby released, are held as a charge of energy by the nervous system inside the psoas muscle tissue.

A tight psoas can be the cause of back, hip or groin pain, digestive problems and breathing habits and feelings of exhaustion.  If this muscle is continually contracted it begins to shorten which can lead to sciatica, scoliosis, hip and knee pain and digestive issues.

The psoas muscle relates to four chakras: the root chakra, the creative center, the solar plexus or power center and it reaches up towards the heart center. A good mantra for this muscle is: I AM CREATIVE,  POWERFUL AND LOVING. When the body tightens up and is unwilling to walk forward, look to releasing the psoas muscle to regain your ability to step forward once more.

Liz Koch calls it the muscle of the soul which is why when I work on someones sacrum I feel this soul energy and it's all linked.The psoas is so intimately involved in such basic physical and emotional reactions, that a chronically tightened psoas continually signals your body that you’re in danger, eventually exhausting the adrenal glands and depleting the immune system.”

This could explain why many people are suffering from candida and other gut problems. So would recommend a release of psoas muscle with craniosacral and doterra essential oils for feeling trapped feelings, do some colonics and see if this issue can be resolved.

The sensitive empaths of this world take on other people's energy so easily so can often be found to suffering from either of these problems.The good news is that empaths are needed in this world to feel for all the people who can't feel and here is a great article on them – deep love to all us sensitive beings
