Sharing this because autoimmune diseases are not understood by many...
From...Susan Goldsmith George, Physical Therapist
My mom just passed from polymyositis. We understand autoimmune diseases. They are vile.
I wish more people understood...😪
What she has is not a cold or the flu. She will never get better. A nap won't help. She is not lazy but she is tired to the point of a lethargic state. She's on meds to try to make it easier to thrive and merely survive. Many people say that she's faking it or that she just needs to push through it. Well sometimes she can push through the pain and live her life, but there are days where she can't walk without having to hold on to something. Her joints hurt. Her body hurts. Her mood varies, and she is sad a lot. She tries to control her mood swings and intermittent bouts of depression. She takes her meds daily, and more vitamins than you could fathom, to help keep her up but most days nothing works.
She has an autoimmune disease.
I'm watching those of you who will take the time to read this all the way to the end.
To see who reads and who shares without reading please, in honor of someone who is fighting MS, Chronic Lyme Disease, Dermatomyositis, Polymyositis, Mixed Connective Tissue Disease, Lupus, Graves Disease, Scleroderma, Ulcerative Colitis, Fibromyalgia, Sjogren's syndrome, Crohn's, Sarcoidosis, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Celiac, Hashimotos Thyroiditis, PBC, CIDP, Aplastic Anemia, Psoriasis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Takayasu's Arthritis or any other autoimmune disease...
Copy and paste this to your wall, do not share.
Write "Done" in the comments after you have done so.
Do this as a sign of your love and support for everyone you know fighting this battle.
Many of my friends and family are struggling with autoimmune disorders!!! ❤

Hard to p**p and p**p is hard? Functional constipation presents as 2 or more of the following symptoms: straining, hard and lumpy stools, incomplete evacuation, sensation of blockage, requiring manual maneuvers for defecation, or decreased frequency of bowel movements. Our therapists recently discussed an article investigating the effect of transcutaneous electrical stimulation (TENS) on slow-transit constipation. Despite low subject numbers, the results suggest that use of TENS improved constipation symptoms, decreased abdominal pain, and regulated bowel movement frequency. Interestingly, the sham group also had improvements in constipation symptoms and abdominal pain which led our discussion to other plausible explanations for treatment effect. The etiology of slow-transit constipation is not completely understood, the wide-ranging treatments have yet to have a gold standard and usually requires multiple modalities and treatments. As physical therapists, we evaluate and treat mechanical restrictions and neural inputs to help improve constipation symptoms. For treatment of constipation, pelvic floor physical therapists can use TENS in addition to pelvic floor and abdominal muscle retraining, visceral mobilizations, teach defecation mechanics/position, refer to adjunctive providers, and much more!

And she finds him....

Birth-ed: Hypnobirthing and Antenatal

The Fetal Ejection Reflex.

In the final stages of an undisturbed labour, the fetal ejection reflex is triggered, causing powerful, involuntary, expulsive contractions that enable us to birth our babies. As our baby moves through the pelvis, they will stimulate the nerve endings and initiate this incredible response within our bodies. At this point in labour you will have a huge surge in adrenalin, again contributing to initiating the fetal ejection reflex (thought to be so we have both energy for this moment, and that we become alert immediately after birth in order to protect our newborn babies!). Occasionally in hospital settings, we sometimes see an external trigger for adrenalin production (such as discussions around instrumental birth or new people entering a room) cause this response too, as our bodies 'sense danger' and decide that baby is better out than in!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This surge in adrenalin (the hormone of fear) can also explain why we sometimes feel or express 'panic' during transition, it's our outward response to our body's way of preparing hormonally for what is about to happen.

For some women this comes with an irresistible urge to bear down and 'push', for others the reflex takes over entirely.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The simplest way to describe what the fetal ejection reflex feels like, is remembering a time where you suffered with food poisoning and needed to be sick, nothing would stop you being sick, it was just HAPPENING! It's basically that... in reverse. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If birth is disturbed too much, be that by intervention, conversation, location or something else, we run the risk of interfering with the body's natural flow of hormones, meaning we miss hugely helpful, natural mechanisms such as this! It's therefore important that we think carefully about the environment and support we have around us during birth. We have the PERFECT physiological system already in place, we simply need to let it do it's job!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

8 Reasons Why Working Moms Should Plan Life Around Their Menstrual Cycles You'll be so much happier if you sync your schedule with your body's hormones.



“Our study shows that waiting five minutes or more before clamping the umbilical cord, while infants are held skin-to-skin with the mother, leads to more myelin development,“Erickson-Owens said. “This is a low-tech, low-cost technique that we believe can mitigate iron deficiency and vulnerability to anemia.”
