IBS-Exploring it’s mystery through understanding trapped emotion

IBS, also as ‘spastic bowel’, is on the rise in our society. People often present with symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating, and alteration of bowel habits with either diarrhea or constipation.

Scientific research on this condition, concludes that people with IBS are often ashamed of expressing emotions, and because of this may have a tendency to hold on to their feelings! This inclination can significantly aggravate the symptoms of IBS.

The ancient Taoist masters of China taught 5000 years ago that your body stores particular emotions in individual organs.

If you palpate the bowel reflex on the souls of your feet, a person with IBS will often have a very congested bowel reflex. The colon or large intestine in Chinese medicine also reflects the lungs, and the predominant emotion held in both these organs is ‘sadness’. If a person has had a lot of sadness or depression in life, these reflexes will feel ‘congested’ to the touch. It would be appropriate to explore that grief, and also any anxiety held within the life history of the client with IBS.
A congested large intestine reflex also indicates a tendency to carry emotion inward.  Exploring these feelings is an opportunity to release trapped emotions.

When a patient with IBS begins to explore the root of the emotional issue that has caused IBS, the symptoms will often begin to dissolve from the cellular memory.
