Most Effective Sciatica Exercises
This meditator's heightened awareness that evening appeared to be caused by a combination of factors. One mechanism is especially relevant to the cross-legged meditative sitting posture. Compression of nerves in the leg, and of their blood vessels, can cause tingling and other painful sensations to rise up through the large sciatic nerve. In rats, stimulating this same sciatic nerve causes certain key nerve cells in the hypothalamus to fire faster. These are the corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) cells. When they release CRF, this excitatory peptide sets in motion many of the brain's other intrinsic stress responses7 (see chapter 53).
Moreover, LSD also enhances the actions of norepinephrine. These mechanisms are indirect. For example, two things occur when LSD or mescaline is microinjected into the locus ceruleus (1) each drug inhibits the ongoing spontaneous background firing of these NE cells (2) each drug causes the NE cells to fire more when they respond to sensory volleys sent up from stimulation of the sciatic nerve down in the leg. Again, the two drugs share the familiar property of increasing the signal-to noise ratio.
By auto-suggestion they could cure themselves of colic, gastrodynia, sciatica, and the like. This was done by closing their eyes and concentrating their thoughts on the organ they wished to affect. One quarter of an hour was the longest period required to completely remove such pain. This is the essence of faith-healing, psychic-healing, and the like, and the reader, by persistent and intense practice, can have the same powerful control over his body the Orient has long known the value of this auto-mind-power-control in which many Yogis, fakirs and Buddhists are Past-masters.
This delay is relevant to the temporal profile of the phenomena that occurred during this writer's state of deep internal absorption Z 478-479 . I did not drop into this state until 20 minutes after a significant series of untoward events. They began with a period of mental and physical distress prompted by severe numbness and tingling in my left leg. These sensory symptoms, in turn, had developed because my sciatic nerve was compressed while I sat in the half-lotus position with my left leg crossed. This 20-minute time lag lends support to the hypothesis that these several stressful events could have set off, after the usual delay, some potential endogenous opioid contributions that had entered later as a feeling of bliss.
Wiring in between, nevertheless, the Chi Energy is really there. Nowadays, as soon as I sit down quietly, clear away the thoughts in my mind, take a few deep breaths as instructed and concentrate on my navel ---- I can feel Chi accumulating in my navel. I can direct my Chi Energy to the area of sickness. I can direct the chi Energy to my palm. That's how I healed my low back pain which my doctors said to be sciatica. My low back, pain did not go away after I opened the Governor and the Conception meridians. So, after I practised the Fusion of the Five Elements when I could gather a lot of Chi Energy easily, my teacher tau9ht me how to direct the Chi Energy to wherever I wanted it to go. So, I directed my Chi Energy to my sacrum, and after many such maneuvers, the low back pain was fifty percent better. Since I did not get all better my teacher taught roe how to transmit the Chi Energy to my own palm and then pat my low bach with my own patm and transmit the life force from the palm to...
In physical transformation of pain, the pain is moved to a part of the body that is less central to the individual's activities or to a location that is so ridiculous that the person is enabled to treat it in a humorous fashion, thus making it easier to view the pain in a more detached manner. For example, lower-back pain could be transferred to the big toe, where it interferes less with daily activities. Or a headache could be moved to the little finger of the right hand or, more humorously, the left earlobe. This procedure is especially valuable in cases of chronic, intractable, benign pain, where there is often a need to retain the pain for psychological reasons. The client is thus not asked to give up the pain, but only to transform it. Often it is helpful to ask clients where they would like to move their pain, in order to involve them in the process.
These general points, concerning the impacts both of stress and of meditation, are applicable to the way a particular series of events happened to converge before the episode of internal absorption began. The tempo of meditation had intensified for the two previous days during sesshin. That evening's zazen was held in a novel place, the zendo at Ryosen-an at Daitoku-ji. Moreover, twenty minutes before the subject plunged into that first blank gap, he underwent an episode of unusual physical and mental distress. During this stressful period, he remained a neurologist all too aware that his left leg was becoming totally paralyzed. Never before (or since) had the leg been this numb. Sitting through this sciatic nerve paralysis meant two things. First, inner turmoil. Second, a concession of some magnitude.
(x) Hypnotism can relieve pain in pleurisy, sciatica, lumbago, neuralgia, encephalalgia, cancer, tabes dorsalis, and even in gastric ulcers, duodenal ulcers, and appendicitis, etc. in the latter three it would be a crime to hypnotise away the pain, until one was certain of what procedure is definitely to be taken in the patient's interest, e.g. operation. It should be borne in mind that for years, hypnotism has been used
A remarkable improvement in pain control occurred some years ago with the presentation of a 50-year-old hotel cook who for years had been trying to convince doctors that there was a physical cause for her severe lower back pain and left-sided sciatica. No specific lesion had been demonstrated after intensive investigations, including lumbar puncture and myelography yet she continued to complain of searing pain and paraesthesiae in one of her lower limbs on a constant basis. Under hypnosis she was asked to
Ambroise-Auguste Liebault, a French physician, read about Braid's work and became interested in hypnosis. In order to avoid being branded a charlatan, lie worked without financial remuneration. His results were noticed by Hippolyte Bernheim, a famous neurologist, who taught at the medical school. Bernheim sent Liebault a patient suffering front sciatica, whom he had unsuccessfully treated for over six years. Liebault cured him with several sessions of hypnosis. This interested Bernheim in Lidbault's work and together they treated over ten thousand patients. Bernheim wrote the first scientific treatise on hypnosis, Suggestive
