A malfunctioning Ileocecal Valve is an extremely common condition
Come and learn this must-have technique whether you are a practitioner adding to your skill set or you are wanting to help yourself/family and friends health.
It can be responsible for an almost unbelievable list of distressing symptoms. It is frequently the cause of “I just don’t feel well “ together with many types of pain including neck, lower back, inflamed joints, brain fog, low energy, loose bowels, constipation or IBS plus many other specific symptoms.
The majority of all clients presenting a list of symptoms to a complementary health practitioner (and probably also to medical doctors) will have a problem with the Ileocecal Valve which is primary to their issues, or is certainly a contributing factor.
Every client needs to be tested for ICV involvement regardless of the reason they presented for help
The practitioner is often drawn to focus on the client’s point of pain. This can cause the ICV to be missed. Even Carpal Tunnel and Disc problems which seem like peripheral nerve irritation can be considerably exacerbated by the water retention in the body attempting to dilute the effect of the toxins caused by the ICV malfunction.
The Ileocecal Valve is located between the end of the Small Intestine, the Ileum, and the beginning of the ascending colon, called the Caecum. At the midpoint diagonally between the right Anterior Superior Iliac Spine and the Navel is a positional reference called McBurney’s Point. The Ileocecal Valve is positioned behind this point although anatomically we are all slightly different.
The valve is composed of two parts, a sphincter muscle at the end which is under neurological control, and a valve type of structure at the beginning of the Caecum which is a mechanical valve.
It was once thought to be simply a one-way valve which maintained the proper flow by its own shape. Systematic Kinesiology has reinforced the idea that the valve is muscular, and under autonomic nerve control.
There are also emotional factors which appear to be connected to the Limbic System. Our “gut reaction” to stress and emotional upsets also affects the function of the valve.
Within Kinesiology we look at digestion in the stomach, absorption in the Small intestines and the environment in the Large Intestines. We teach you how to test for food sensitivities as they can also affect ICV function.
