Stomach-Up

This is the most common problem on the planet.

When the stomach pops up into the hiatus of the diaphragm muscle, the flow of hydrochloric acid is restricted and diverted, which causes an excess amount of calcium in the body. This imbalance of Ph results in an overabundance of calcium. This accumulated excess must be removed from the bloodstream so it is deposited in the joints of the bones, causing mobilty problems.

When the stomach is popped up it has a tendency to lay up against the heart causing it to lose rhythm and beat irregularly. This situation is the great mimic because it can express symptoms anywhere there is blood.

Main causes are overeating, eating the wrong kinds of food, drinking too much alcohol, emotional stress, improper posture, and wearing tight pants. Holding of breath or habitual shallow breathing weakens the diaphram muscle that helps to hold the stomach down in its proper position.

When this condition is persistent, eating less per sitting (no second helpings) and walking for a few minutes after eating helps considerably. Sleep with the upper part of the body raised slightly. Do not bend over after eating. Sleeping on right side and proper posture (no slouching) helps.

Ingestion of small amounts (1-2 teaspoons daily) of apple cider vinegar, use non-distilled only, a high source of potassium will help balance the Ph.

Technique for Correction

To Self Adjust

    Standing works best. May also be done sitting or kneeling. Bend forward slightly while exhaling. Push in and downward at the bottom of the rib cage. Repeat three times. Stimulate reflex vigorously with knuckles or fingertips for 10 seconds. After the adjustment, if the stomach is not full, drink a glass of water to give the stomach some weight to help it stay down. The stomach is hard to adjust on yourself, so stick with it.

To Adjust Another Person

    Have student lie on back. Place both hands centered at the bottom of the rib cage. Instruct student to inhale. Gently and firmly push down to floor and towards feet in a "J" motion while student is exhaling. Enter slowly. Keep fingers from sliding on the skin but rather move the skin itself. Do not place the hands in the inverted "V" of the rib cage to be effective. Repeat three times. Use index finger and thumb to push down on small children.

Massage reflex area vigorously with knuckles or fingertips for 10 seconds.

This adjustment may be done as often as necessary.

It is important to sit straight , not overeat (no second helpings) and practice proper deep breathing. The drinking of 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar (not distilled) mixed with apple juice or a spoon of honey mixed with water twice daily will help restore potassium levels. Blackstrap molasses is also an excellent source of potassium.

When the stomach pops up, the body sends out a vibration that attracts sympathy on a subconscious level. Sympathy is the capacity of feeling other's pain – whatever affects one correspondingly affects the other – so all involved are at dis-ease. With no boundaries, we cannot screen outside influences, so there is a tendency of others to tell us their problems. We feel sorry or sad for them and/or ourselves. This dumping is absorbed by the body, draining our energy even more. It is important to establish personal boundaries. One of the first dis-eases of the dysfunctional family is the individual's digestive tract also becomes dysfunctional. When the stomach is kept in its proper position these tendencies will disappear. Then we will be able to establish boundaries allowing us to separate from the unnecessary. Life will then quickly change for the better.

  • More energy
  • Better breathing
  • Satisfaction after eating
  • More food choices
  • Clear skin and rosy cheeks
  • Allergy and arthritic relief
  • Improved digestion
  • Clearer thinking
