Body talk: the language of our organs - the stomach and duodenum

Each one of us is born with a unique set of physical strengths and weaknesses. Similarly our visceral make up as well as our emotional processes are specific to us and intimately linked. One way of understanding our bodies’ subtle physical expression is to observe our emotional state. This gives us information which can be directed towards greater physical well being and emotional stability by addressing the specific organ involved with that particular emotional response.

The following is based on traditional Chinese medicine and the work of Chiropractor Doctor Jean-Pierre Barral.

Each blog will deal with a different organ for the next 12. Those are Stomach and Duodenum, Spleen and Pancreas, Liver, Gall Bladder, Intestines, Colon, Kidneys, Bladder, Genitals, Heart, Lung, Adrenals and Thyroid

The stomach and duodenum

1. Emotional description:

The Stomach/duodenum represents our self in relation to our social environment and in relation to others in a social context such as work. It is about self expression as well as satisfaction and fulfilment of the self. When out of balance the stomach emotions will reveal themselves as marked ambition, greed, lack of fulfilment, seductiveness, manipulative strategy, seeking attention through performing or underestimating oneself and being very shy.

2. Physical symptoms:

digestive fullness linked to food and eating, feeling hungry all the time, heart burn and acid reflux, ulcer and gastritis, discomfort in the stomach, above the navel or between the shoulders towards the left when lying down on back, repeated burping.

3. Taking care of the stomach:

Sugar, caffeine, nicotine, alcohol are all very damaging as they will irritate the delicate lining of the stomach; Avoid very cold foods or drink that will contribute to cramps and spasm; Chew food thoroughly and avoid drinking fluids with food to maximise the effect of the stomach enzymes on digestion; Avoid aspirin and other non-steroid anti-inflammatory as they also damage the stomach lining;

4. Associated colour:

It is associated with the colour yellow.

5. Associated Chakra:

It is associated with the solar plexus.

6. Affirmation which supports the stomach:

I am content, I am tranquil; I am grateful and appreciative; I accept myself and others as they are; I am fulfilled

7. Exercises which support the stomach:

Relaxation exercise using deep breathing will help balance the stomach as will Pilates and yoga exercises which focuses on core stability and a sense of feeling centred and balanced
