When the digestive system experiences imbalances, the whole body gets thrown for a loop. Many diseases and even common problems such as constipation and gas result from having digestive system malfunctions. So, what causes digestive malfunction and imbalance?
There are many causes, however stress is the most common and most destructive. Stress targets the digestive system and if it gets a hold there, the rest of the body is in for a rough ride.
Most diseases start from a digestive system problem, which is something that has been studied and proven true. To cure the diseases of today, we must dig into the digestive system and fix the problem at the source.
One of the best alternative treatment options for colon health and many other problems is reflexology. If you are unfamiliar with reflexology, it is simply the practice of strategically applying pressure to areas of the reflexes of feet and hands as they correspond with specific body organs. Just like the teeth, the feet and hands are a map to the health of our entire body.
By stimulating nerves on specific areas of the feet and hands, we can stimulate blood flow and eliminate toxin buildup in the corresponding areas of the body. Furthermore, reflexology stimulates the lymphatic system and encourages the release of endorphins, the natural feel good hormones that are well documented in relieving the effects of stress.
Wellness and Reflexology
Reflexology is meant to bring your body to a state of well-being. Only in this state is your body able to heal itself. When your body is full of toxins, your immune system is severely compromised, making you much more likely to succumb to sickness. Reflexology is a beneficial tool for improving circulation, relieving pain, and as an immune and nervous system stimulator.
In fact, many people with illnesses such as allergies; chronic sinus problems; acid reflux; migraines; PMS; menopause; insomnia; fertility problems; fibromyalgia; depression and even arthritis report significantly improved conditions as a result of the treatment.
In one case study, patients that had been depending on senakots and laxatives for years had normal bowel movements after only four reflexology sessions. Furthermore, patients with IBS experienced the total disappearance of pain and bloating. Now, if that isnt proof, I dont know what is.
I always advise that people at least go to one reflexology session to feel the difference for themselves. No matter what your physical or emotional problem may be chances are you will be hooked after just one treatment. In fact, many people find that they want to learn the techniques for themselves so that they can experience the benefits on a regular basis.
By simply applying them to your feet at night before bed, you will help detoxify all of your organs at the same time. Not only are well-known healing oils and tree extracts used in these patches, but also there are no side effects, making them a very popular choice.
