Adano Ley’s uncle, a medical doctor, took him to the gravesite of his cousin Cecelia to illustrate the danger of over-fastidiousness about the body’s natural processes.

The gravesite tombstone carried the following epitaph …


Years later, after Adanobecame a Swami (Swami Nityananda Saraswati or, as he preferred, Swami Nitty-Gritty), he commented …

“Donkeys will get you to heaven, but those who have buttocks and don’t know how to fart through it may end up in hell.”

Overweight and MANY medical diseases are the outcome of SUBCLINICAL BLOAT.

Humans are much too muckety-muck to be diagnosed with “bloat.”

“Bloating” getscursory mention in medical dictionaries, but not “bloat.”

The exception to the rule in our male-dominated medical system is “premenstrual bloat.”

Women are allowed to have “bloat” during MEN-struation.

All veterinary manuals have one or more listings for “bloat.”

According to the Merck Veterinary Manual, Seventh Edition (edited by Clarence M. Fraser), 1991 …

“Gastric dilatation leads to increased intra-abdominal pressure, which significantly reduces caudal vena caval and portal venous blood flow. Cardiac output diminishes because of decreased venous return. As the dilatation and volvulus progress, gastric arterial blood flow may be compromised. Stasis of blood and tissue hypoxia result in sequestration of fluid and endotoxin accumulation in the splanchic organs. Arterial hypotension causes decreased coronary blood flow and myocardial hypoxia. Hence, cardiogenic, hypovolemic, and endotoxic forms of shock all contribute to the physiological derangements seen in GDV [gastric dilatation-volvulus]. Additional complications include production of myocardial depressant factor from the hypoxic pancreas, hypoxemia due to reduced diaphragmatic excursion (hypoventilation) and altered pulmonary gas exchange, multiple acid-base abnormalities, and disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC).”


Concerning “acid reflux,” note the “multiple acid-base abnormalities.”

Half (50%) of all asthmatics are diagnosed with GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), and folks taking proton pump inhibitors have a 30% greater chance of contracting pneumonia – syndromes involving GASEOUS PRESSURIZATION.

    Atom, what can you tell me about ankles that swell and get puffy, under the ankle bone and towards the back part? I’ve tried a lot of things to help this. Just wanted your opinion on this type of thing. Thanks!

      See my latest blog entry, “Wind & Water & the Life Stress Point” for at least a partial answer.

      Previous blog entries may also be helpful, e.g., “Letting the Gas Out of Edema,” and all 5 “Pumping Up the Weight” entries.

      No fluid will move satisfactorily without the yawn or the “rectal release.”

      In the house where I’m staying in La Jolla, I have to push the bathroom door shut, but, if I leave the bathroom window open, the bathroom door SLAMS SHUT without any solid contact whatsoever.

      That’s exactly why our gastrointestinal tract has a FRONT DOOR and a BACK DOOR. :)
