In the clinic, I see many clients with IBS. Irritable Bowel Syndrome is an increasing issue amongst many people now a days. Mainly caused by high levels of stress, poor diet, emotional trauma and the symptoms of IBS are widely known. In western medicine, doctors give you medications to have for the rest of your life and you learn to live with it. Have you ever thought that why this condition appears in the first place? Were you born with this? If no then surely, you have been doing something or living in a way that has caused this dis-ease in your body. Where is this current lifestyle leading us? Constant worry, stress, pressure of completing many responsibilities and not enough time! Every system in the body gets upset as we rely on a quick fix in everything.
According to Traditional Chinese medicine, IBS is an imbalance in the engine of the body. Our internal organs are our engine and when that is not performing efficiently, you can imagine what chaos takes place! Twisting and torsion in the bowel system that creates waste and stagnation build up which causes toxic absorption in blood, Liver gets affected as its job is to eliminate toxic out of body and the immune system start compromising. This situation stays in the body for long time and we get dis-eases like IBS and other organ related conditions like Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, ME, weight gain, migraine depression, fatigue, asthma and many more.
Now let me tell you how we can help those who suffer with these all conditions. In KORE therapy we use tools such as cupping, tuina, Qi-gong, cranial balancing and Anmo-Fu (Deep Organ Massage). Our organs are connected to the spine via the nerves thus cupping around the spine can stimulate the nerves connected to each organ and helps to improve the function of those. Deep Organ Massage is one of the great tools that we use. Using oil, specific gentle unwinding massage movements are applied to bowel area and that helps to eliminate the trapped toxic and stagnation out of the system. Clients feel instant release as body can now absorb the nutrients and the engine can function better. This organ massage also lifts the mood as each organ in TCM are connected to specific emotion and as the organ starts working better, client’s emotions become under control too. Clearing this blockages of toxic and waste, stimulates better flow of blood, energy and nutrients in the body. With better flow in the body, many dis-eases are able to disappear as they are the end results of imbalance.
Now as a therapist we give you a helping hand, but I believe that help can only help you if you help yourself. How much willingness you have to cure yourself from these dis-eases? We all have certain levels of stress. Some have more and we all react differently to it. When we are in stress, the body’s chemical reaction changes as it is constantly in ‘Flight or Fight’ mode. And in survival condition, body can’t repair or do the normal growth work. Now imagine constant stress would never give body time to relax, repair, regenerate or grow. Every system of the body becomes imbalanced as they can’t communicate to each other because they all are busy in supporting the threat/ ‘Flight or fight’ mode.
If you want to help yourself and don’t want to suffer lifetime then cultivate the habit of looking after your body and mind. Do some exercise and yoga, introduce meditation in to your routine, practise mindfulness. Spend some time every day in doing something you enjoy. These little things have great impact to give you long, happy and healthy life!
