My buddy, the Leather Tiger, ex-Marine George Adams, came to see Swami Nitty-Gritty.
His legs were swollen with edema.
Swami Nitty-Gritty did some preliminary work on George in a recliner chair.
Then he instructed me to hold George’s feet.
He told me to push George’s toes in the direction of his head – foot dorsiflexion, like taking your foot off a gas pedal.
He told me to gently push George’s toes together – foot inversion, the opposite of Charlie Chaplin toes-out foot eversion.
Heencouraged George to yawn and stretch.
George’s legs shrunk down to normal in less than 10 minutes.
I’ve done this many times since. :)
Blood pressure is measured in terms of hydraulics, but hydraulic pressure (liquid pressure) is subordinate to pneumatic pressure (gas pressure) – as any Kriya Yogi or plumber knows.
ADWV (drain-waste-vent) system uses a stack vent (stink pipe) to maintain NEUTRAL PRESSURE in a plumbing system.
This DWV mechanism prevents high pressure in a drainage system – as it does inyour human body.
There’s only 2 stink pipes to vent gasout ofyour body -your MOUTH and your ANUS.
Swami Nitty-Gritty commented, “The body could’ve come with a hinged toenail to let the pressure out, but a surgical de-clenching release valve is impractical because the blood would escape by gravity flow. It’s more practical to yawn and fart and burp.”
Kriya Yoga starts with fancy yawning – yawning with a Ph.D.
