A Simple Treatment

It's so humbling to have healing visions.

Two nights ago, half-way between being awake and asleep, probably in the same state of consciousness Jordon is most familiar with, the center of my consciousness shifted from my head (wakeful state) to my sternum and I could see my body like a transparent outline with only key parts visible, my stomach organ and the attached duodenum.

They didn't have proper color, more like x-ray scan. They were dark, but outlined and material enough to see what they were.

I suffer from some odd intestinal problems, namely trapped gas bubbles in my intestines that are very uncomfortable, and heartburn. I have to manipulate my body (rocking, patting, pressing, adjusting positions repeatedly) to aid the bubbles up and out. They do not taste of acid, they are bland. But there is a soapy/foamy quality to them.

Anyhow, it happens almost every night before falling asleep. That night, during the vision as I drifted off to sleep, my body showed me a cycle of tension and relaxation. When my body tensed, that annoying discomfort of anxiety returned, along with a noticable upslip in my duodenum into the bottom of my stomach. When I relaxed, it fell back into place and the discomfort ceased. It was an incredible difference.

My mother suffers from what is called a hiatal hernia, where the sphinctor muscle fails to hold the contents of the stomach down. Acid and gas leak into the esophagus as a result.

I've been trying to compare my symptoms with her condition, and while some things coincide, the acid reflux doesn't.

I don't know that what I saw was an accurate model of what's happening in my body, but the sensational difference made great sense, and here was the revelation of it: 
when my body is tense (usually from anxiety), my stomach and esophagus shrank, and when I mindfully let my body relax, a relief I didn't know would happen eased the discomfort I had grown so accustomed to in my digestive tract. The result was a tremendous difference in my symptoms.

Today, two days later, when I actively relax the muscles in my torso and upper abdomen I feel such a change in the state of my organs. Perhaps it seems obvious to others, but I had no idea the two could be related. The biggest difference is in my esophagus where it meets my stomach. If it is a hiatal hernia, which is what my body printed in words on my mind during the vision, this all makes sense. Why it showed me the duodenum pushing upward into my stomach only makes sense for my primary complaint about the bubbles in my intestines. The more I thought about the anatomy of it, the more it made sense, but I can't find any medical information on such a condition.

I wonder if tension has been linked to digestive problems with such a direct relationship, before.
