One cause of obesity in women is what Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) called “Big Mama Syndrome.”

A first-born child put in charge of other siblings puts on “weight” to gain authority.

Obesity has “secondary gains,” such as protection, security, and power.

In the words of …

Hilde Bruch, “Psychological Aspects of Obesity,” A Study of Interpersonal Relations: New Contributions to Psychiatry (edited by Patrick Mullahy), 1949, “The really puzzling aspect of the psychology of obese people, who blame all their misery and failures in life on ‘being fat,’ is their seeming unwillingness or inability to do something about it. Ordinarily, if one recognizes the source of one’s suffering, one will bend every effort to remove it. Not so the obese person. On the contrary, their very reactions to being fat contain all the elements which go toward making the condition progressively worse. If one learns to understand fat people more intimately, it gradually appears that their tremendous size, which they so loudly bemoan, is not without a positive emotional meaning for them. This is more easily recognized when dealing with obese children who say quite frankly, ‘I would want to lose weight but I do not want to be skinny.’ Usually their mothers share the anxiety about losing weight. It seems that in the insecure and unstable relations to the surroundings, physical size and bulkiness convey a feeling of strength, safety and power to the timid fat child. The heavy layers of fat seem to act as protective walls against an outer world which the fat person often experiences as unfriendly and threatening. Sometimes the very unattractiveness of obesity serves a definite emotional purpose. It offers a seemingly obvious reason for avoiding situations which might provoke fear and anxiety. Many fat young girls, though outwardly very concerned about getting married, nevertheless persist in remaining fat because it is a protection against men and sex and the responsibilities of adult womanhood which they dread even more than the disgrace of being fat.”

One friend of mine told me she remained overweight so men other than her husband wouldn’t be sexually attracted to her.

She considered herself too morally weak to resist their sexual advances.

The body language of a bloated midsection is usually associated with visceral “oral” drives.

These include …

(1) the desire for love and sex,

(2) the fear of being deprived or punished,

(3) separation anxiety,

(4) subordination to a dominant person,

(5) hostile feelings of “eating” (eliminating) an antagonistic or hostile person, and


(6) according to Adano, being “strangulated by one’s own convictions.”

RED-FLAG LANGUAGINGindicators influencing obesity include “that’s a weighty matter,” “put your weight behind it,” “stop throwing your weight around,” “don’t be such a lightweight,” etc.

    Obesity out of social context is NOT a “dis-ease.”

    A 400-pound sumo wrestler does not have a dis-ease.

    Hi Atomb,

    What you have written about with the reasons for obesity is so correct. I was never overweight until I was sexually molested when I was 12.

    What I would like to ask you about is my diagnosis of having a strongyloid parasite which I seem to have had for many years. This diagnosis was accomplished by a naturopathic doctor Donald Monus in florida who treats people worldwide simply with a sample of their blood which he has devoted his life to studying. I will do the paratization he recommends and Patrick has advised me to take what I get from him to have my body muscle tested as to the efficay of this for my body’s successful recovery. When I asked Dr. Monus what would have happened to me if I did not deparatize I was told I would get schizohrenia and cancer. Now he did not volunteer this information. I asked as it seemed appropriate. I am wondering if you can tell me why I got this parasite which comes from either dogs or monkeys. Dogs I have had since a child however I do not recall ever being in contact with a monkey. Any information you care to discuss with me would be so appreciated.

      Are you referring to threadworms?

      Strongyloides stercoralis, a human form of threadworm, is different from Strongyloides canis, but that doesn’t rule it out.

      Dogs, cats, monkeys, or SOIL can harbor threadworms.

      Threadworms thrive on …

      (1) sodium chloride,

      (2) carbon dioxide,

      (3) sodium bicarbonate,

      (4) adipose tissue,

      (5) duodenal and jejunal fermentation,

      (6) sunburned skin, etc.

      Generally speaking, working with the Small Intestine Meridian (1:00-3:00 pm) and its SHUNTS – Circulation-Sex Meridian (7:00-9:00 pm), Liver Meridian (1:00-3:00 am), and Stomach Meridian (7:00-9:00 am) – is the primary line of defense against threadworms.

      Working with the Lung Meridian (3:0-5:00 am) and its SHUNTS – Spleen-Pancreas Meridian (9:00-11:00 am), Urinary Bladder Meridian (3:00-5:00 pm), and Triple Heater Meridian (9:00-11:00 pm) – is the secondary line of defense against the antibodies to threadworms.

      Consult YES NO MAYBE: CHRONOBIOTIC NUTRITION, 2004, 2010, for circadian SHUNT protocol details.

      One general parasite cleanse involves black walnut hulls at Stomach Time, pumpkin seeds at Small Intestine Time, and 100% agave tequila at Circulation-Sex Time.

      Almost all parasites dislike garlic.

      Probiotics (e.g., acidophilis) and prebiotics (e.g., garlic) defend against parasites.

    I was doing a Recycling in the apartment above Adano’s Karma Klinic.

    An overweight woman had a Spleen/Pancreas Meridian in such dire straits that her head was bald at the neurovascular holding point near the posterior fontenel.

    I couldn’t get to the crux of the problem, so I said, “In good conscience, I can’t let you go home like this. But if we go downstairs and see Adano, I guarantee he’ll find the problem in less than ten minutes. Just pay him, and you don’t owe me a penny.”

    X replied, “I’ll pay you both. I just want to get well.”

    I explained the details to Adano, including, “Her Spleen Meridian is so far off she’s got a bald spot at the neurovascular point.”

    Adano told X to sit down and remove her shoes.

    He held her feet and asked, “What happened to you when you were ten years old?”

    X replied without hesitation, “I was raped.”

    Adano instructed, “Repeat after me …”

    He screamed VERY loudly.

    X screamed back in kind.

    He screamed a second time … even louder.

    She screamed even louder.

    He screamed a third time … louder still.

    She screamed louder still.

    Adano released X’s feet and walked into his kitchen without a word.

    X was shaking uncontrollably as she fumbled with her shoelaces.

    I asked, “Are you OK?”

    “Yes,” she said, still trembling and tying her shoelaces.

    “Is the pain gone?” I persisted.

    “Yes,” she insisted, racing for the door.
