Messages in Water

Our bodies are constantly giving us messages as to what it needs.  The key to those messages is to have the understanding of their meaning.

Bowel movements are one of the easiest ways to check the body’s flow system on a regular basis.  The information can tell you how the vital organs of elimination are working, how hydrated someone is, and give a good overview of internal health.

One of the healing paradigms that practitioners meet with their patients/clients is the paradigm about what a healthy bowel movement is.  In fact, most people think that they have healthy bowel movements when, in fact, they are simply not sure what that means or if they have ever had one.  It is better to look at what a healthy, natural bowel movement is than to concentrate on what is “normal.”  In this day and age of heavy-duty pharmaceuticals, processes and/or genetically -modified foods and polluted water, constipation is what is “normal.”  So we really want to provide education on what should be a “natural,” healthy bowel movement.

In Dr. Bernard Jensen’s book, Dr. Jensen’s Guide to Better Bowel Care, he remarks about the findings of a study, conducted while he was attending the National College of Chiropractic in Chicago, which proved this was a major issue.  Of 300 cadavers, 285 claimed to have normal bowel movements with no constipation.  In fact, some stated they had 5-6 bowel movements per day.  What was discovered during the autopsies was that out of the 300 cadavers, 285 did have constipation issues.  Some of them were so impacted that the colon was twelve inches in diameter.

Assisting your patients/clients in the basic understanding of the structure and function of their bowels will assist you greatly in putting together sound healing strategies.

What are some of the signs of a healthy bowel movement?

  • There should be at least 2 bowel movements per day
  • Bowels should move easily – no strain, pain, cramping, or explosive gas
  • Should be large
  • It should hold together
  • Smooth on the outside
  • Should be brown
  • Shouldn’t sink nor float or bob
  • Should be very little odor

Anything other than the circumstances outlined above indicates there is a blockage in the intestinal flow.  A blockage here will result in toxins being dumped into the bloodstream.  The blood will be sent to the liver to be filtered.  The liver can only do so much.  Once it becomes compromised, the excess waste is put back into the blood stream where the kidneys will attempt to filter as much as possible.  Congestion here upsets mineral balance, fluid levels etc.  Once the kidneys become compromised, the excess waste is sent back to the blood stream where it is deposited into the more vital organs – circulatory system, heart, nervous system, etc.

Most people that walk through your door will have issues with allergies and sinus conditions, skin congestion and rashes, hormone imbalances, infertility, autoimmune disease, diseases of the nervous system (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Depression, OCD, etc.) Where do you think the blockage starts and how far did it back up into the body?

Primary organs of elimination:  Digestive system including intestines, pancreas, liver/gall bladder, spleen; Urinary system including the kidneys and bladder; and the respiratory system.  Once these become congested, the body pushes toxins to the secondary organs and systems of elimination; the sinuses, skin, and reproductive organs.

It doesn’t matter the symptoms…we always look back to opening the primary blockages that are downstream.  We can take the pressure off the liver and kidneys by supporting the body to eliminate effectively.
