Chronic Back Pain
Category: The Analysis of Disease States: Helping the Body Recover
Source: How And When To Be Your Own Doctor
Barry was a carpenter who couldn't afford to lose work because he
was unable to bend or twist or lift. He frequently had bouts of
severe back pain that made working almost impossible. Upon analysis
by biokinesiology I found that he had a major problem with large
intestine weakness and secondarily, adrenal weakness.
Constipation frequently causes back pain. The muscles of the back
have nerve pathway connections to the large intestines; weakness in
the intestine causes weakness of the back and makes it prone to
injury. But the problem is the intestine, not the back. And the only
way to make the back stay better is to heal the intestine. Many
athletes have very similar problems. For example, they get knee
injuries and think there is something wrong with their knee. Or they
get shoulder injuries and think their shoulder is weak. These people
are only half right. Yes, their knee or their shoulder is weak. But
it could become strong and almost uninjurable if the underlying
cause of the weakness is corrected.
The knee for example, has nerve pathway connections to the adrenal
glands and kidneys. The shoulder has similar connections to the
thyroid. The foot is weakened by the bladder. The treatment should
first be on the weakened gland or organ and secondarily, on the
damaged muscle tissue. I have solved numerous sports-related knee
problems with protomorphogens for the adrenals and elimination of
food allergies that make the adrenals work overtime. I have fixed
bad shoulders by rebuilding the thyroid.
In Barry's case, it was the intestine. I asked him about his bowel
function and he said that he was never constipated, had "a daily
bowel movement without a lot of straining." But having given some
6,000 colonics, I knew better. There should have been no straining;
Barry was trying very hard to be regular--he should not have had to
effort. Fortunately, it struck him as true that he needed to
detoxify and I managed to convince him to water fast. He probably
figured, why not since he couldn't work anyway. Barry was a tall,
skinny man to start with and you would think he hardly carried any
fat at all, but he fasted on water for 30 days, receiving a colonic
every day, while I did bodywork on his damaged back. He sure was
constipated and couldn't deny the evidence that floated by through
the sight tube of the colonic machine. By the end of the fast his
colon was fairly repaired and free of old fecal material. And Barry
had become a tall, gaunt-looking guy who had lost about 20 pounds
you wouldn't think he had to spare.
After a few weeks of careful weaning back on to food, Barry felt
pretty good, terrific even. He had no back pain and found out for
the first time what not being constipated meant. It no longer took
"not very much effort" to move his bowels; they moved themselves.
That was ten years ago. A few months ago, Barry looked me up, just
to say thanks and to let me know that he had not had any more back
problems and had generally felt good because he had more or less
stayed on the improved diet I had instructed him about during his
