THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: THAT BLOATED FEELING PART TWO

Leave a comment

TAKE SOME ACTION NOW TO FEEL BETTER WHILE HEALING

Gut massage can and often does help people to feel better. This video is very popular and you can do it on yourself. Here is one other. Check out youtube for others.

Old school, but a hot water bottle is a lifesaver for many. Just ask people of all ages that live in the UK. For flu like symptoms, stomach cramps, upset “tummy”, constipation and gas. It is comforting and will help ease that bloated feeling and move gases along, helps relax tissue and organs that reside there. Works on the lower back if you are a stomach sleeper and have minor sleep disruption your can put it on your lower back. Depending on the condition of your back it can help with backaches. You can buy mini hot water bottles and stick them in your waist band while sitting down or even walking around.

Colloidal Silver or other anti fungal substances [ MMS, Can Sol] can help reduce the viral load that is usually some part, if not a large part of the  cause, of bloat and a distended belly. I / we make our own and I drink it daily for helping ease fungal symptoms such as bloating, foggy thinking and insomnia. SiverGen and Sota Instruments are two good companies to buy from.

Deep breathing. Why? Most primary to this program is the overlooked fact that our body detoxifies mostly through the breath. No, I am not making it up. Extremely important,breathing is relaxing, tells our brain and entire nervous system we are not in fight or flight mode. Gets our upper diaphragm to move and that massages your transverse colon, organs and entire gut. How do I know that? Lots of years of working on breathing and being resistant to it myself. Start with 10 deep breaths a day and go from there. May not sound like much but those 10 breaths make a big difference. Will build a muscle memory and make your entire nervous system way more healthy.

GABA in the right amounts has helped me with bloat. I find this especially true when the bloating comes along with the condition of constipation or just feeling sluggish. Donna Pessin says to not stress about being constipated. I get what she is saying, but being constipated is not relaxing. In my world constipation feels stressful and if that is your experience GABA can be your friend. The right amount and when to take GABA is the key. I take it throughout the day and more intense amounts in the evening and in the morning. The amount is highly individual and somewhat tricky. Took trial and error for me to figure this one out and I still do not have it completely down pat. Probably will keep changing as things get better, a little less better and “more better” … If you are on The Unique Healing Program for at least 6 months you probably know what that last sentence means.

Breathing deeply and getting the Diaphragm Muscle to massage the gut and all the organs is, I have to repeat, very important. This is beneficial and necessary for  physical and mental health. There really is no separation of the two. Also, the heart is attached to Diaphragm and  benefits from breathing deeply and creating fundamental relaxation. A healthier heart is a big payoff.

Det plays a role in alleviating bloat and much of that information is in The Unique Healing Program Book 1. Knowing something about Proper Food Combining can help alleviate bloat and ease indigestion in general. These  non – dietary suggestions that I have listed are just reminders of some simple things we can all do each day, that are inexpensive or free. Hope this is a helpful reminder, or somewhat “enlightening” for some of us. Writing this post is a good reminder for me.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi
