Pelvic Flows – Adhesions

Very easily undone . .
When you work at the level of how and why they formed.

Reverse this – as body heals itself  when we get out of the way and provide what is needed.
This forms the basis of my treatments – pull out what is not supposed to be there and add in what is.  .

What is an adhesion?

Adhesions are bands of scar tissue that form inside the body as a result of infection, inflammation, trauma, even radiation therapy. Surgery (trauma) is the number one cause of this illness. Adhesions can cause internal organs to become fused together which can result in a myriad of symptoms: agonizing pain, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, back pain, constipation, migraines and bowel obstructions.

Connective tissue that is grown to hold bits within you – closer.
Usually is the cause of pain.discomfort and often inability to work well.

Body does this why?

Feels the need to bind and protect – often after accidents, incidents, surgery.
More surgery to undo this will result in more not less adhesions

Perhaps change your inner script?
This is where the simple remedies – better food and hydration choices, more outside happy times.

Using time tested home remedies – castor oil packs and perineal steaming and abdominal massage – and herbal assistance – often as what grannies knew – will win over new and expensive short term’ maybe ‘ fixers.

What does an adhesion look like?

Not pretty. . .
Like glue really.
Acts like it also


The liver organ adhered to surrounding tissue                    All sorts of tissue – with adhesions again knotting it all together.

What to do?
Undo it . ..

See my course – Heather’s Belly Moves for starters.
Use also castor oil packs.
See someone as myself who has does specialised multi modality work on many levels – not one visceral or one acupuncturist or even one any thing – but who can use a massive tool box to assist with all that will also likely come up . .

I use a variety of techniques – especially ones that I also have been teaching for over 35 years successfully assisting so many hands on healers – I also travel to incorporate that which others are doing – the Arvigo /Maya Arvigo work and also that of Jennifer Mercier.

Mercier therapy is a soft tissue visceral manipulative therapy technique

Used to help restore the health and general well being within the female pelvis. This gentle and non invasive technique was created to help you to reconnect to your divine feminine and to allow your pelvis, a highly emotional space, to re-open to healing and balance.

Chronic pelvic pain can be debilitating and difficult to handle on a daily basis. Typically pelvic pain can occur within the structures surrounding the female reproductive organs such as the urinary bladder, bowel, musculature, ligaments and bones. Also, pain could be coming from the reproductive organs themselves.

Adhesions are fibrous bands that form between tissues and organs, often as a result of injury during surgery. They may be thought of as internal scar tissue that connects tissues not normally connected. They form when inflammation occurs on the surface of the abdominal organs or the peritoneal lining of the abdominal cavity; the formation of scar tissue is a normal part of healing when there is inflammation.

Body upset – myriad pathways

Lack of flows
Lack of appropriate ingredients to keep the Liver energy moving PLUS
Falls/incidents – whatever causes life trauma
In operations:
  • handling of abdominal organs at the time of surgery,
  • foreign objects left inside the abdomen at the time of surgery (for example, a piece of gauze),
  • bleeding into the peritoneal cavity, and
  • gynecological conditions (P.I.D.

Not just women . .

Under normal conditions, the loops of the small and large intestines are free to move around within the abdominal cavity, sliding over each other and the surrounding organs over a thin film of lubricating fluid. When adhesions form, the intestines are no longer able to move around freely because they become tethered to each other, the abdominal wall or to other abdominal organs. At the sites where adhesions occur, the intestine can twist on itself, and the twisting may obstruct the blood supply or the normal movement of its contents, particularly in the small intestine. Most of the time the twisting is intermittent, but occasionally the twisting does not reverse spontaneously. The symptoms from adhesions may occur soon after the inflammatory process sets in; however, more typically they occur several months or even many years later.

What are the symptoms of abdominal adhesions?

Although abdominal pain and other symptoms of intestinal obstruction are by far the most common effect of adhesions, another important consequence is infertility. In women, the broad ligament that contains the ovary/tubes and their blood and nerve supply may be influenced through the uterine malpositioning that common falls/incidents in life may create. Fallopian tubal inappropriate circulation may result in kinking and obstruction, thereby preventing the eggs that are released from the ovary from reaching the uterus. The lack of iodine and other essential nutrients all play a part in the overall health of the pelvis – and can be gently corrected back to optimal through using the Mercier and allied lymphatic and Qi (energy) moving techniques.

As an acupuncture consultant, I know that the Liver Qi must freely flow.
We can get too caught up in the right hand side of this line. Life happens all the way across.

Symptoms caused by adhesions may vary from specific (typical when left to be there till an emergency appears ) ) to non-specific (QI is blocked – not as bad as it can get – YET). When the symptoms are typical, the diagnosis is easy since adhesions are the most common cause of intestinal obstruction. Look to all I have written on Liver Qi Stagnation. Past/festering and present emotional angst/blockage is a great start to eventually end up as these physical woes.

The typical symptoms of physical obstruction are abdominal discomfort located around the navel that is cramp-like, followed by distention of the abdomen. Symptoms often are worsened by eating.

How are abdominal adhesions medically treated?

Patients undergo either laparoscopic or open surgery and the adhesions are cut by scalpel or electrical current (lysis). The problem is that adhesions have a tendency to reform, (the reason they were there at all was as usal with orthodox reactive medicine not addressed) and some individuals have a tendency Iack of appropriate bio available nutrition – zinc especially) to form adhesions. Laparoscopic surgery results in fewer adhesions and, theoretically, is a better option; however, whether the adhesions are lysed at laparoscopic or open surgery, the inflammation caused by the process of cutting can result in recurrent adhesions.

Instead – we could just ‘gentle’ the body better . .
