One obesity issue is overlooked by today’s medical professionals – the downward displacement of internal organs due to excess weight and other causes.
This downward displacement was diagnosed as “Glenard’s disease” over a hundred years ago.
It was diagnosed by French physician Frantz Glenard (1848-1920), and was also called visceroptosis and enteroptosis.
Today Glenard’s disease is so ubiquitous it’s not even recognized as a medical problem.
Yet imagine a spleen so ptosed (prolapsed) that it was mistaken for a uterine fibroid.
Or imagine a stomach situated below the hips.
Or a liver split in half by displaced ribs.
Or a heart misshapen by the displacement of other organs.
splanchnoptosis = prolapsed spleen.
gastroptosis = prolapsed stomach.
hepatotosis = prolapsed liver.
nepthrotosis = prolapsed kidney.
coloptosis = prolapsed colon.
The main cause of Glenard’s disease is obesity, especially CENTRAL OBESITY.
A secondary cause is FLABBINESS.
Another cause is CHAIR-SITTING, although partial immunity is offered by sitting in a high-backed rocking chair.
Another cause is a CROOKED SPINE, especially …
kyphosis = “roundback,” “hunchback,” “dowager’s hump.”
lordosis = “saddle back,” “hollow back.”
scoliosis = “S-shaped spine” (sometimes scoliosis occurs as a “C-shaped spine”).
Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) taught 5 remedial exercises for visceroptosis.
He called them the BASIC 5, and they were done in specific order at specific times.
