Pain Is Due To Blockages
Pain you feel in your body is an effective warning sign for ailments. Pain is the message that your body is telling you that there is something wrong, and you need to pay attention to this matter.

As long as energy and blood flows freely and smoothly without hindrance or obstruction, there is no pain in the body.  However, if, due to any reason, the flow of energy and blood is hindered, blocked, obstructed, or does not flow freely, then there will be pain.

A blockage can occur in any location in the human body. Symptoms of a blockage shows up as a slowing of the flow of energy and blood. Thus, when there is a blockage, the local metabolism slows down and the body structure becomes less energetic. This slow-down makes the local body systems less capable of removing chemical waste by blood or lymph and causes further deposition of chemical waste in the same area. These activities will repeat themselves indefinitely.

When the energy level falls below a certain threshold, the onset of a chronic illness is near. If it is not treated, the condition will worsen over time. For example: Healthy muscles should have a very relaxed and soft muscle tone. A joint should not be enlarged. If you discover that your elbow is enlarged and your muscle is hardened, it will be painful if you press on it. These symptoms indicate a blockage in your elbow.

There are two main causes of the lack of free flow of the energy and blood.  Either something is hindering, blocking or obstructing the smooth and uninhibited flow of energy and blood through the channels and vessels, or there is insufficient energy and blood to maintain smooth and free flow.

With any physical or emotional illness, blockages will be found somewhere in the body. These blockages may or may not occur next to the troubled organ or structure. Once the blockages are opened and removed, our body will restore the flow of energy back to its normal pattern, resulting in the curing of illness. Opening a blockage results in pumping out the dirty blood from the blockage points. To open the blockages in the body, stimulation is required. This can be accomplished with hijama. Once stimulation is supplied, the body will move more energy and blood to the particular point and enable the body to move the waste out.

In the first case, lack of free flow is likened to a plug of hair and soap in a drainpipe.  The water from the sink cannot flow freely because something is physically obstructing the pipe.  In the second case, either there is insufficient energy to push the blood or insufficient blood to nourish the vessels.  It is the function of the vessels to promote the flow of blood.  If the vessels do not obtain sufficient blood, they cannot fulfill this function, and, therefore, the blood will cease to flow freely within them.

All pain, are due to problems with free flow of energy and blood.  As such, our first job is to find out the reason for the blockages in your body. And our second job is to provide the treatment which restores that free flow.

The flow of energy and blood can become inhibited in any and every area of the body:  the internal organs, the muscles, the head, the low back, and the extremities and joints.  For example, when we overeat and have acute indigestion with the accompanying sensations of abdominal fullness, bloating, and distention, these symptoms are due to the stagnation of stomach energy. In this case, the stomach energy cannot move freely through the excessive amount of food and drink in the stomach. 

Likewise, when we bruise ourselves and blood escapes from the blood vessels and then pools, we experience a mild form of blood stagnation, often called dirty blood.  We feel better and become free of symptoms when the energy and blood resume their proper functioning and flow freely.

The sensations of pain due to energy stagnation and dirty blood are different.  Energy stagnation causes a feeling of distention or soreness that fluctuates in intensity and location. Energy stagnation pain often occurs with strong emotional changes.  Dirty blood, on the other hand, is characterized by painful swelling or stabbing sharp pain at a specific, fixed location.

Emotional Causes of Hair Loss (Alopecia)

It is commonly known within the medical industry that alopecia or hair loss is caused when the immune system goes haywire and attacks the hair follicles. They look at the problem solely on a physical level and treat it with steroids for the purpose of suppressing the immune system temporarily.

Seen from an emotional level, hair is very much linked to personal identity. Alopecia is a sign that the base emotional center, relating to our identity within the primary family setting, is disturbed. Sufferers ‘lose their identity’, typically, when not able to voice their feelings, and therefore cannot fully express who they are. Issues that threaten our security within the family could trigger off the emotional distress that could lead to alopecia.

Alopecia of hair loss can make people feel self-conscious and uncomfortable in social gatherings. They feel they are less attractive and some even feel embarrassed. Men with alopecia may feel their manhood has been diminished. Conventional medicine only looks at the physical level and prescribes drugs to be applied on the scalp. However, one needs to go deeper into the emotional aspect to resolve this problem.

What Is Your Disease Trying To Tell You?

Many people think disease happens randomly. Actually, the diseases that come on to you have a meaning, and your body is trying to communicate that meaning to you.

For instance, on an emotional level, heart disease falls on people who tend to over commit and push themselves too hard. They struggle with never having enough time to do all the tasks on their plate and are burdened with the responsibility of taking care of other people. These people are always stressed, pressed for time, and rushing too much. They suffer from an urgency addiction and keep their body in a prolonged state of fight-or-flight stress reaction. 

Your disease has an important message for you. It up to you to interpret and understand its meaning. Dis-ease can teach us about the lessons we are here to learn. If we are aware of this and work toward dealing with those lessons, that work can raise us to a higher state of being than before. Dis-ease is often necessary to teach us a lesson which we have failed to get by other means. It can only be truly healed when that lesson is learned.

Emotional Causes of Back Pain

Low back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide, affecting millions of people. Acute pain is intense and lasts from a few days to several weeks. Acute back pain is generally due to sprains or strains and usually gets better in a few weeks. Chronic pain lasts longer than three months. Back pain is the number two reason people visit their doctor (number one is colds and flu).

Back pain has both the physical and emotional causes. On the physical side, lower back pain in men shows up as sciatica, prostate or kidney stones. For women, it affects the ovaries and pelvic disorder. On the emotional side, in men it can signal anger issues and stress of unsatisfying job/home life. In women, it can signal loss of power and feeling unsupported.

On the emotional side, worrying about your financial condition can cause lower back pain. Such worry causes the body to produce high amounts of the hormone cortisol. Overproduction of cortisol happens when you enter into a survival mindset. This condition weakens your immune system, suppresses digestion, affects your reproductive system and impairs the growth process.

Overcoming Arthritis Emotionally and Physically

Arthritis is a disorder that involves inflammation in one or more joints. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 70 million people are affected by arthritis in this country. In fact, arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the United States. 

Studies show that emotional factors play a big role in the development of arthritis. The emotions associated with arthritis are usually unexpressed anger, resentment, aggression, criticism (of self and others), lack of support, and fear. Experts suggest that one reason women are afflicted with rheumatoid arthritis four times more frequently than men is because women are taught from early childhood not to express anger.

Arthritis is a pervasive disease that causes pain and inflammation in joints and can be widely spread throughout the body. Common arthritis joint symptoms include swelling, pain, stiffness and decreased range of motion. To overcome arthritis, the person needs to heal both emotional and physical causes of the ailment.

Getting To The Emotional Aspects of Cancer

At HijamaHerbs, we acknowledge the emotional aspects that brought rise to various diseases. As validated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) which stated that 85% of all diseases have an emotional element. The American Medical Association (AMA) stated 80% of all health problems are stress related.

There is now numerous evidence that repressed anger and resentment play a crucial role in the development of cancer. When negative feelings are not expressed, they can contribute to physical illness over time. Repressed negative feelings, such as anger, increase a person’s level of the stress hormones, which directly suppress the immune system. When your immune system is down, it is unable to fight cancer and soon develops into a full blown cancer.

British Muslim convert Peter Chatfield who was paralyzed from the chest down due to cancer in the spine. The doctors gave him 6 months to live. He did not have many Muslim friends but desired to be surrounded by Muslims brothers. When the word was put out, hundreds of Muslims from all backgrounds came to visit him in the hospital. Many came from nearby and some came from far away. One Muslim brother even flew in from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia just to see him and fly back. Peter passed away peacefully on Nov 4, 2014. (Ilmfeed)

Our full treatment price is $300. However, if you can only afford $200, then instead of doing the full treatment, you can choose to do a partial treatment. In this case, I can perform hijama on the head and neck only.

Perhaps later you can do the full treatment to get lasting relief. Partial treatments start from $120 upwards.

Putting Yourself On The Journey Towards Healing

Some time ago, I had an older gentleman who came to see me for help  with his ailments. He was suffering from high blood pressure, diabetes, migraines, lower back pain and sciatic pain in his legs. After finding the blockages in his body and tracking the path of pain, I gave him my recommendations on the level of service that would be beneficial for his condition. But he responded saying, “Just the Basic is enough for me.”

When undergoing treatment for difficult ailments, it is important to take the appropriate level of treatment. Cutting corners on your treatment will only lengthen the time of suffering with the pain. Also, it is necessary to take the long view towards recovery. Realistically, it is going to take some time and multiple sessions of hijama and herbs before full healing is accomplished. We need to look at it as a journey towards healing, not as a one shot cheap quick fix.

Finding Blockages and Tracking Its “Path of Pain”

A woman came to me yesterday complaining of tightness and swollenness in her legs. I bent down to press the relevant points on her leg to find the blockages. When I pressed on the points that were blocked, she screamed out in pain but at the same time told me, “yes, yes, that’s exactly where I feel the pain.”

After I found the main blockage point, I then proceeded to track the “path of pain”. In her case, the path of pain flowed from her knee straight down to her ankle. As I pressed on the points along the path, the woman screamed again, “aaw, aaw, I’m feeling pain there too and here too.” She was surprised at the length of the path of pain, that she said, “I didn’t realize the pain went all the way down my leg.”

Pain or health condition – whether it is headaches, back pain, leg pain or suffering from chronic fatigue or having poor memory or anxiety – all shows up as blockages along the energy pathways in the body. Blockages prevent proper energy and blood flow and results in pain in that area. Once the blockages are found, we then track the path of pain. Only after that, hijama is performed to open up the blockages along the path of pain. This relieves the pain and alleviates the health condition. Taking of herbs helps to stimulate blood flow and strengthen the circulatory system and bring the body back to normal health.
