If you’ve had them, you know that digestive issues can seriously impact your quality of life!
Today, millions of people are affected by problems with digestion. These include heartburn, ulcers, IBS, indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, pain, or just generalized discomfort. Most likely you, or someone you know, is silently living with the discomfort of unhappy digestion.
There are multiple causes for these various problems, such as chronic disorders, food sensitivities, and stress…just to name a few. However despite the cause, Reiki can be a comforting healing alternative to find relief.
Reiki is a non-invasive form of energy healing that is growing in popularity as more and more people are witnessing its benefits for themselves. It has been used for centuries and originated in Japan as a way to improve health and quality of life.
In Ayurveda, life-force energy is known as “prana”. In China, it’s “qi”. In Japan, it’s “ki” (as in Rei-KI). But ultimately, these words signify the flow of energy throughout our body; our energetic self.
We often tend to our physical bodies, our emotional health, and our mental well-being…but all of these are affected by the energy that flows naturally within us. It’s just physics! Do you ever think about your energetic body? Our energy is often overlooked when it comes to our healing and overall state of wellness. However, it may be more important than you think!
When energy flows as it should throughout your body, your physical, emotional, and mental state functions at its best. The body can then heal itself. Your mood is lighter and calm. You feel happier and more at ease throughout the day. As a result, digestion flows more normally and chronic symptoms are less uncomfortable.
Everyone has the ability to channel Reiki. We naturally place our hands on areas that are hurting, as if instinctively knowing healing it provides. But typically, a treatment is delivered by a trained Reiki practitioner. The Reiki energy gently flows through the practitioner’s hands using light touch to distribute the energy where it is needed.
Treatments are usually offered in private practice settings, but are also offered in hospitals and medical settings as a supportive therapy to wellness and traditional medicine. But for those who have been trained and attuned to give Reiki, it can be used for self-care and care for one’s family. Anyone, even children, can be attuned to use Reiki on themselves with simple training by a Reiki Master.
How Can Reiki Help with Digestion?
- Pain Relief
Many people report significantly lower pain levels after receiving Reiki, including intestinal discomfort.
- Decreased Stress
Reiki reduces stress and provides deep relaxation, and experts now recognize stress as a major player in multiple digestive problems.
- Elevated Emotions
Chronic discomfort can lower your energy levels and significantly affect your mood. Reiki brings a boost to both!
- Reduced Inflammation
Reiki can help reduce inflammation in any part of the body, including the digestive tract, while also supporting the body’s own healing mechanisms.
When you work on your own self-improvement and self-care, you gain a better sense of control over your life and wellness. Bringing improvement to one area of your life starts a cascade into other areas. This “ripple effect” slowly improves your overall health!
IMPORTANCE OF DIGESTION IN AYURVEDA
According to Ayurveda, the quality of your digestion is the key to your health. If you have any of the signs or symptoms mentioned above, it may indicate that something is amiss and shouldn’t be overlooked. First, absolutely consult with your doctor. But then, finding balance in your life is vital. This balance can be found in your diet, in lifestyle choices, in taking the right herbs and supplements such as YouVeda’s My Healthy Digestion kit, and in supporting your body’s energy through healing modalities such as Reiki.
