Great to see you again Criag. A lot of the work has evolved since you last came in, right?
The big takeaways for you are working and unwinding the overly right and twisted patterns through the spice. Between the hips, going up the low back and through to the neck are compensating, causing a pretty significant lateral shift. It appears as scoliosis but really it’s an exaggerated form of posture that most people have. The real issue is the stress that the fascia is under because the joints are out of place. That stress extends around the organs which causes the dysfunction of the entire system. Structural issues and internal chemistry issues are not separate things, they are very much inextricably linked. This is why the functional medicine practitioners that you are seeing are going to hit the issues from one end, but if the physical end isn’t addressed than its pushing a boulder up a hill the whole time.
Physically unwinding through tissue manipulation, exercise reinforcement and emotional/mental support along the way can make this transition easier. Your body responded quickly to the mainly neurological based approach we took. The cranial tension really loosened up the gait. The elevated should as previously mentioned is from that lateral shift in the spine. Those patterns needs to be released and then immediately reprogrammed with exercises to reinforce the new patterns. I attached videos that we selected that are best for your body.
When working with people who have been through the Garage, I caution promising all these things up front. Instead the perspective is best served by addressing what the body needs now in order to make a noticeable difference fairly quickly and that difference should guide you to build upon more intuition for the next step. My approach is to be as hands off as possible and give the body the energy to do what it is designed to do.
Possible avenues for treatment would be a few hands on sessions that include training too. All which are recorded so the lessons learned can be worked on and polished up at home. Testing like the BWA to give us certain biomarker function levels and comparing that to our newly released extensive symptom based questionnaire, will paint the picture of what areas need the most attention first. If you’re already wrapped up with the functional medicine group and good in that department, then my next best course of action is gut cleanse protocol. It took me many years to find something that I believe in. We developed with Elemental Wizdom and Sun Horse Energy the Tummy Polish protocol. It’s a simple yet extremely powerful 12+ week gut rebuild program. That along with a few selected herb adaptogens targeted for the hormones would be my best advice.
