Preparing for Surgery?

Preparing for Surgery?

Ah yes, the end of the year, that time when you consider the surgery you put off all year waiting until things slowed down in your schedule.  Now your deductible is met on your insurance and the holidays are upon us so you better fit it in!

Some of you may think that as a natural health practitioner I am against surgery. Ironically, my Dad was a surgeon. He helped a lot of people because of what he was trained to do. I do not have anything against surgery especially after a serious trauma like a car accident where seconds and minutes count. The items below are best addressed before surgery, but there is much we can do to bring the body back to balance if you’ve already had your procedure.

Several things can play into your surgery that can leave a lasting impact for months and even years.  A few have been noted here with some thoughts on how to properly prepare.

  1. Effects of Anesthesia
  2. Impact on your gut microbiome
  3. Impact on your skin microbiome
  4. Scar tissue and adhesions
  5. Back pain
  6. Emotions out of balance

 

Here are a few things to consider in order to make your surgery as smooth as possible.  First, be sure to follow all the advice of your surgeon’s team.   They have their reasons for doing all the things that they do to make your surgery experience as positive as possible. Don't take chances, but know that there may be some after effects.  The good news is these can be addressed as long as you prepare in advance.

  • Effects of Anesthesia and CO2:  Thank God for some tools that help keep the pain levels down. The days of biting a bullet are over, however, these tools can leave a lasting effect.  Be prepared and be patient. You may feel groggy or foggy for more than just a few hours after surgery. This is normal, generally, and drinking a lot of water will help your body flush some of this from your system. I highly recommend a technique we use in our BodyTalk Access class called Body Chemistry. It is specifically designed to help the body deal with the effects of intolerances to chemicals etc. If you don't know the BodyTalk Access routine be sure to check out the next class offering. You will find yourself using it for many more opportunities than just surgery;  including possibly surgery prevention depending on the issue.  However, in the absence of the full BodyTalk Access routine knowledge, try the first technique taught in the class called Cortices.  This is safe to use before and after your procedure.  You may also find when you have abdominal type surgery, that CO2 is used to pump up your abdomen so the surgeon can have a clear view to work. These can be very painful after surgery especially when the bubbles get lodged in areas like the clavicle or collarbone. Preparing for these in advance is easy with a BodyTalk surgery prep session with a trained practitioner. In these sessions, your practitioner will prepare your body to dispel these gases in a more efficient manner. The sessions can be performed in person and long distance via video conference as well.

 

  • Impact to Gut Microbiome:  Generally after surgery, depending on the kind, you may be required to have a good bowel movement before you leave the hospital.  And if for any reason you were required to take an antibiotic pre or post-op, it's important for you to know that the antibiotic can actually impact your gut movement for well up to a year beyond the surgery.  This may mean your regular bowel activity looks different, but generally, regular bowel activity is best at 3 bowel movements a day.  It's important to consider a good probiotic and good fiber after surgery. And easing your digestive system into action is the best way to start.  Consider a smoothie for breakfast in the mornings including a good probiotic and good fiber. Both of these can be recommended by my office. It's important to note that not all probiotics are the same. And you will want to switch them up about every 2 to 3 months or they can actually have a negative impact on your microbiome. Another good way to move your microbiome to a good space is through the Body Chemistry technique in the BodyTalk Access class previously mentioned.    One of the best things to move your gut microbiome to a better space is a BodyTalk session with a trained practitioner who understands how to prep your body prior to your surgery.

 

  • Impact on your Skin Microbiome:  Ah, the Hibiclens.  It's a special soap that helps protect you from bacteria that your body could be exposed to while in surgery at the hospital. I recently came across this when I had a surgery. The good news is I had BodyTalk Access and a knowledge of how to improve the good critters that keep my skin in good working order to protect my body.   This soap is very powerful and will strip your microbiome of anything and everything. Again, all for the right reason. The best thing I recommend is to get plenty of vitamin D from the sun, consider support for your skin such as Vitamin D supplement (gel) to put on incision points, essential oils such as Frankincense and Lavender several days after and perform the Body Chemistry technique from the BodyTalk Access routine. Not to mention BodyTalk surgery prep sessions.

 

  • Scar Tissue:  Scar tissue or adhesions are what can be left behind from a surgery. It's basically where skin on the outside or muscle and other tissues on the inside form together almost as if they were glued. If these are in delicate areas they can cause restriction in movement.  In a BodyTalk surgery prep session, we actually have a technique specifically for scar tissue and adhesions. It not only helps to address the look and feel of old scars, but it can also help your body better prepare for healing of new incision points and access points from your surgery.  Sometimes there can even be emotional concerns locked up in these scars.   Consider if there was a lot of emotional energy around a surgery that perhaps you didn't want to have. Perhaps the loss of a limb or other body part like a uterus. These kinds of incidents can leave a lasting physical and emotional impression and can be prepared for through a BodyTalk session with a trained BodyTalk practitioner for surgery clearing and consider obtaining some essential oils for supporting the incision areas and emotions afterward.

 

  • Back Pain:  If you have had any kind of surgery in the abdominal area lately, you may have experienced back pain that you did not realize could be related to your surgery. There are multiple energy pathways that run through your abdominal area which I call energy meridians. Many years ago, I had a procedure done through my navel. A few months later I started to experience back pain. It was then that I realized the surgeon cut through what is called the kidney meridian. I didn't know this at the time, but I now know to look for it in my clients. An adhesion can form near the point of incision and cut off the flow of energy through an energy meridian. This can link to other ailments in the body and to other organs and most doctors would not connect this simply because it comes from a different aspect of medicine.   So in my case, I worked with a certain specialist to have a procedure done through the abdomen. And six months later I started to have low back pain which would send most people to an orthopedic or back specialist. Neither of these two professionals are generally familiar with energy pathways. As I learned about energy pathways in my studies as a BodyTalk practitioner, I was able to connect that abdominal surgery scar to my low back pain.   As indicated above, when we cleared the scar blockage the energy could flow again and my kidney meridian was no longer impacted.  This meridian will impact your back among other areas. Before your next abdominal surgery, be sure to have a BodyTalk surgery pre and post session with a trained practitioner to prepare your body to make the most of a very invasive but sometimes necessary procedure.

 

  • Emotions:  Never underestimate the power of emotions. Consider that all your body parts are a community. In fact, there is a Bible verse that talks about one body many parts. While that is referencing the Christian Community, it also is a phenomenal correlation to the body. So if you consider that you're having some sort of abdominal surgery and perhaps an organ is about to be removed like the gallbladder.   Consider the other organs around the gallbladder. The gallbladder is being removed probably because it's not working well. Maybe it’s “stinky”.  Remember, it's an organ going bad. Some of its neighboring organs may want it to move on. Kind of like if your neighbor next door piles trash heaps without having them moved on to the city dump. While some organs may want the gallbladder to move on, other organs like the liver which is it’s partner organ, will actually grieve the gallbladder leaving. It's no different than two police officers that are partners for many years. They have each other's back. They help each other out in times of need. And then one day the gallbladder is removed. Do not underestimate the need for that liver to be supported; emotionally and physically.   I'm sure I don't have to say much about a woman who has had a hysterectomy. You cannot underestimate the power of her emotions going through that process of losing that body part. A body talk session can prepare the body for removal of body parts and the addition of new parts such as transplants of any kind. Again consider the neighborhood. The old neighbors need to prepare and welcome the new body part.   One might also consider essential oils and flower essences for emotional support.

 

The things you never knew to do that can make a huge difference to your overall response to your surgery, huh?  You may not have taken the BodyTalk Access class but you have an opportunity in the immediate future.  At a minimum, you have the Cortices technique to help your brain talk to your body parts more effectively to help the healing process.  But for the most optimal outcome, I recommend a BodyTalk Session which can be performed in person or remotely via video conference as I walk you through techniques to help your body better prepare.  Contact my office to schedule your appointment to prep for surgery or to help you get back on the mend after one.

Oh, The Places You’ll Go!

Oh, The Places You’ll Go!

Have I told you lately that the work I get to do in my practice absolutely fascinates me? My clients have such an amazing desire to want to see change in their world and together we create magnificent results.

The theme of my practice has always been, "Oh, The Places You’ll Go!" Yes, the one by Dr. Seuss! I especially like the cover with the little character sitting on top of what looks like an inverted vortex. Ever feel like your world was caught up in a vortex?

Just ask my clients. They will tell you that where we end up or what we work on to address a health ailment is RARELY on their radar screen. In fact, I often feel bad for allopathic medicine practitioners because they are not taught the connection between the physical body and the rest of what makes you who you are. You know, the full you; spirit, soul, body, mind, will and emotions. That is why so many leave a practitioner's office and never really seem to have good answers.

It would not be unusual for someone to experience a painful left ankle and for us to determine that it links to their kidney or perhaps a fear around losing their mother. I have worked with many that have bladder incontinence issues and we had to work on generational emotional hurts. These were not things my clients directly created, yet ailments passed through to them on their DNA. That is where epigenetics comes in. It may surface much later in life. All the body needs are the right circumstances set in motion or the right swamp to grow the disease or ailment.

I have worked with incontinence issues in people that have active memories of being bullied or exposed to high amounts of fear in their life. Once we allowed the body to clear those memories from that body part (usually the kidneys), their incontinence issues cleared also.

I have a number of resources on my website that will help explain this phenomenon, but it comes from the science of applied kinesiology for starters and then sprinkle in some acupuncture and don’t forget to add that our creator created one amazing body.

Let’s talk about applied kinesiology (AK). This is the science that I was first introduced to when I started my health journey. Some people refer to this as muscle testing, but the true AK practitioners know it is far more than that. In this science, they study how all the muscles in the body are related to different glands and organs so if one or the other is experiencing an imbalance it could lead to an imbalance in a totally unrelated (or so it seems) part of the body. Most people have been exposed to this concept through reflexology where the body parts are represented by areas on the feet.

An example. Let’s say your low back is hurting. It could be that your psoas muscle is not hydrated enough. You might experience kidney infections because this muscle relates to the kidney. You might also experience fear issues like I mentioned above and the kidney loves to store fear. This person might experience a power drain or uneasiness between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. And they might think it’s just because they had a long work day. Your low back requires that psoas muscle to be in good working order because it attaches into your hip. When you are not drinking enough water, that muscle is compromised and causes you to start engaging other muscles to compensate. Back to the low back pain and thinking it’s because you had a long day at work. Eventually, your shoe store expert starts to recognize that your shoe soles always wear out on a certain side of the heel. Hmmm. I just described 90% of the population that is dehydrated! And did anyone connect that this all related to low back pain? Isn’t that amazing? Learn more about how the kidney can impact your world and follow the links to other organs you may want to learn more about.

Your body is built on thousands of connections like this and every body part relates to other body parts so if one is out of harmony, others will be out of harmony also like an orchestra. Now, I’m sure the theme of my practice makes a little more sense. "Oh the Places, You’ll Go!”

To learn more about the underlying issues of your health conditions, set an appointment so you can discover all the places you’ll go to bring your body back to balance. All sessions can be done in person or live via video conferencing.

Benefits of an Essential Oil Mind/Body Transformation Session

What are the Benefits of an Essential Oil Mind/Body Transformation Session?

Physical and Emotional Healing

Do you know anyone that has a physical condition that seemingly is not improving?  Did you know that almost every ailment or disease has an emotional root?  Now, I know that some physical conditions were caused by an unexpected accident; perhaps by a serious car wreck, work related injury (especially military) or sports injury.  One might think that nothing emotional led up to these. I would argue otherwise, but at a minimum you probably won’t deny that a host of emotions definitely showed up after the injury that caused blocks in the body’s ability to heal.

These blocks might look like anger, resentment, frustration, sadness, sorrow, fear etc. and sound like the following.  What if I never get out of pain?  What if I never walk again?  What if I can’t be the parent my child needs me to be on the baseball field?  What if I can never return to work and provide for my family? These are all very real thoughts to the person that lives in chronic pain, chronic sadness, chronic fear.  I propose that if you do not get the emotions in a better space and unlocked from the psyche, the healing will never happen.

Do you realize though that the body will lock emotions, which are a frequency (watch my video on Essential Oil Mind/Body Integration Sessions for further understanding), in the cells of the body?  It will lock them where you least expect them.  It may store anger in the liver, resentment in the bladder, sorrow in the pancreas and fear in the kidneys and you and your doctor will NEVER connect the two.  This will lead to new health issues like bladder infections etc. that only further complicate your healing journey.

So back to why are these type of sessions necessary for assisting with healing and disease?  Essential oils are a powerful way to address emotional blocks in the body and the training necessary to perform these sessions looks at not only the physical issue but can link it back to the active memory or the foundation of the physical issue.  In fact, do you know the active memory may not even be yours?  It could be resentment from a generation or more back.  That ancestor locked it into their cells and sent a package of emotions to you through the DNA and you don’t even know it.

Have you ever really thought about an emotion you have had and wonder, “Why do I think like that or feel this way?”  Maybe there is no premise for it.   Or maybe you lost someone close to you and despite counseling you still feel the pain.  That’s because it is locked somewhere in the body and talk therapy does not know to address this.

Essential oils assist in addressing the emotions and the mind/body integration session helps you learn the root cause, where it is stored and assists the body in unlocking the code to move you to a new space.  The good news is these sessions cover the whole mind/body landscape on a five senses sensory experience.  This aids the healing process in a more expedient manner.  So even though you may be weary from the journey, if this message resonated with you, there is a good chance that you still have options to lessen the impact your ailment has in your life.  I encourage you to watch this video and book your session today.
