She came to me with a complaint of painful knees. She has been diagnosed with Arthritis. We have done 8 sessions so far, with an alternate day cycle. The first time I did her feet, she cleared her bowels five times the same day. This was followed by an improvement in her bowel movement next day.
Following that, each time I am doing her feet, she burps all through the session. Continuous gas is expelled from her body and feels a slight discomfort in her solar plexus and tracheal region from all the burps and hiccups. The hiccups begin the moment I begin working the lower limbs and are worst when doing the hip and cuboid notch area. I continue coming back to working the diaphragm, chest and solar plexus in between to relieve the tension building up.
The result of all this is that she is feeling lighter and the heaviness from her knees is steadily reducing. Her overall health, she says is working with her and the feeling of being disconnected from the body is moving out. An unintentional bonus has been that she has lost some weight in the same period. I personally think the improved bowel movement; an awareness of self and all the extra gas moving out may be the reasons.
The inflammation around her knees has also reduced, though it is too early to determine the overall improvement.
It’s been an interesting observation – this link between painful lower limbs and gas. Of course it follows logic that any gas will put excessive pressure on the lower limbs, so careful attention has to be paid to the digestive system. It also brings forth the interesting relationship each system in the body has with the other. This is not to say that the Arthritis and painful knees are only a result of poor digestive systems, but in her case and maybe in some others, there may be a link.
