Know of someone who has had hip replacement or knee replacement surgery? Or, more likely, several people who have done so?
We live in a time when surgeries like knee replacements have become commonplace. The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons website predicts that by 2030 the US will have grown to doing 3.5 million knee replacement surgeries per year. And that does not include hip replacement surgeries. This is big business folks!
So what is going on here? Why are joint surgeries becoming more and more common?
I am proposing that there are two main issues going on with joints. I am sure there are other factors too, but these are big ones
1. Joints as a Collecting Ground for Emotional Garbage
Oh the emotional stories our shoulders, knees, hips and other joints could tell us if only they could speak!
In my experience of doing sessions on clients and on myself it has become quite clear to me that the joints of the body are major collecting grounds for emotional garbage. Joints hold a ton of emotional "stuff." Yes, there are other places in the body that are collecting grounds as well, but the joints are biggies. The older a client is the more "stuff" there tends to be that is needing to be cleared.
2. The Nutritional Needs to Keep Our Joints Running Smoothly are NOT Being Met
We do not get the full nutrient requirements, especially minerals, from our diets. Nor do the majority of us optimally absorb and assimilate the nutrients that we do get.
As a lead-in to what to do about joint pain and stiffness I would like to share my own personal experience.
Over several years time I had noticed an increasingly worse right hip problem and pain in my right knee when trying to kneel. For the past several months I have been working on myself off and on for those issues.
Recently I was doing some stretching during a cool down with my clogging class and with amazement realized that I could easily touch the floor with my fingers up to the second knuckles and even higher without bending my knees. You can see me doing this in the included pictures.
I have daughters who are not able to even touch the floor and yet here I was doing it easily. This was something I hadn't paid attention to, but I remembered that it used to be that I couldn't reach the floor.
In thinking about it I have concluded that all of the work I have done in clearing myself must have loosened up my joints and muscles allowing me much more flexibility. I did lose some weight in the past few months which probably helped, but is not a sufficient answer for how easily I am able to reach the floor.
How cool is that?
Just as a two-fold reason for joint problems has been suggested, a two-fold response in working on those areas is recommended.
1. Emotional Clearing
It is of great benefit to release the negative energies held in the joint or joints where you are experiencing pain. How? Schedule a session. This is the quickest way to get going on it.
Not to be discouraging, but don't expect it to be a one-and-done session. One session may help, but if this is a long-standing problem then expect that there is a lot to be released and one session definitely won't cut it. Many years worth of build-up isn't going to be taken care of that quickly. On the other hand, doing nothing at all is going to do just that - Nothing at all!
2. Provide the full Nutrition Your Body Needs
According to Dr. Joel Wallach our bodies need 90 Essential Nutrients and we definitely are not getting all of them. Most places that you look up on the internet only include 12 or 16 or so macrominerals and a handful of microminerals. Dr. Wallach maintains that we need 60 minerals. There is a big difference between these numbers. Minerals are needed to help with specific body functions. If you would like to know more please contact me.

If you are feeling any joint pain or stiffness at all then jump on it quickly. Don't let your joints deteriorate over time. It is far better and easier to prevent than to try and cure. Who knows? Maybe you will be preventing some sort of replacement surgery down the road. Now that is worth it!
