Chi Nei Tsang Abdominal Massage and Your Immune System
Do you bloat after you eat or feel energized? Do you feel tired at the end of the day or are you energetic? Do you have digestive troubles or do you eat with almost no negative repercussions? If you answered in the negative to a most of these questions, odds are very good that you are experiencing the sickly side effects of a congested or inflamed intestine.
Because your digestive system is a part of your immune system, you want to know what’s going on in there. You want to be aware that a long list of illnesses and discomforts are the byproduct of a weak immune system. Perhaps we don’t get a bladder infection from a dysfunctional colon, but a constant toxic off-gassing organ placed right next to your bladder isn’t exactly an ideal situation either. The chances of contracting an infection raise considerably with the constant bombardment of poison both next to the organ and in your blood.
Did you know that when the digestive system is unhealthy, it often lets particles of undigested food pass through directly into the blood stream? Of course when this happens your immune system goes into overdrive. Your body mistakenly perceives that it is being attacked and sends out an immune response that manifests in discomfort and inflammation in the muscles, tissues and joints.
The immune system that prevents you from getting colds, flu, allergic reactions, etc. is most likely going to be compromised if your intestines are filled with rotting fecal matter or your stress is so high it literally causes a belly ache (yes, it can do that). In this case, you have increased chances of contracting any infectious virus that passes by you. Add to this the fact that your immune system is also working over-time fighting these illnesses that your body picks up. When your immune system can never take a break from detecting and fighting against foreign invaders, it is just a matter of time before it starts to burn out and work less effectively. Unexplainable pains, exhaustion, unclear thinking, digestive problems, etc. are the result. In other words – you are going to get ill if you don’t have a clean, healthy digestive system.
If your digestive system is attacked by eating processed foods and harmful chemicals or harboring strong negative emotions, you will eventually experience poor absorption of nutrients when you eat. You will also lose energy and feel exhausted because you are making the digestive system work harder than it needs to. Brain function drops because the brain and gut share the same experience (ever heard of a “gut feeling”?). In Chi Nei Tsang abdominal massage we are very clear that your body has two brains – one is in your skull and the other is your digestive tract.
How do you prevent stuck food in the gut from ruining your immune system? Is it possible to boost or even rebuild the intestinal portion of your immune system?
The answer for most people is a strong YES. Yes, you can build a strong immune system! Yes, you can reduce inflammation in the intestines and lower your chances of getting sick. Yes Yes Yes
Fortunately, like most of our organs, the intestines and stomach can heal if you give them a break from abuse and offer a little mindful attention.
Chi Nei Tsang Helps Your Immune System
This is where Chi Nei Tsang abdominal massage and the simple breathing techniques that accompany it come in to play. Once you learn how to massage the belly and its muscle tissue correctly, you should quickly feel the release of tightness and return of healthy energy flow in this area. The technique I call The Wave literally pushes food through the large intestine and simultaneously stimulates proper muscle contraction and thus regularity. The Cat Paws technique loosens tight skin and muscle around the entire abdomen within minutes thus allowing easier digestion. Even the simple Abdominal Breathing techniques taught to children increase blood flow and bring health to the digestive system as well as promoting relaxation and relieving stress.
I invite you all to visit the Chi Nei Tsang abdominal massage section on SarinaStone.com and see for yourself how easy improving your health and the health of your family can be.
