Fibroproliferative Diseases - Can MELT Help?

clogged arteriesThat’s a fancy word. Atherosclerosis and its various forms represent the massive number of deaths from fibroproliferative diseases. In addition to cardiovascular disease, lung, liver, and kidney studies of pathologic fibroproliferative processes in vasculature is growing every year. Heart disease and these types of disorders are the leading cause of death, outstripping cancer more than 2:1. The US Dept. of Health and Human Services say that 45% of deaths in the US can be attributed to this class of disorders.

Because of this steady increase of diabetes and heart disease, the physiologic process of normal wound healing is now being added to the mix to understand why these disorders are so prevalent and widespread amongst Americans. Many researches are trying to provide a biological context for a more comprehensive approach to the treatment and study of these disorders. Much more research and funding is obviously needed.

These disorders destroy tissue, a natural process that can cause longatherosclerotic plaque term effect. When you have an injury, an inflammatory response ensues. This actually causes more tissue damage followed by a variable degree of repair and fibrosis. The probability of effective repair is governed by a defined interplay of various factors from the severity of the injury, quantity and effectiveness of the inflammatory response, infection, as well as the ability of the body to target the organ or structure that has been damaged. Fibrosis begins when the inflammatory response is prolonged or over-reactive. This leads to persistent inflammatory responses where cells continue to release profibrotic moieties yet decrease healing time and quality.

When pain becomes a chronic issue, your cells are telling you that they are having a hard time restoring balance and quality of proliferation. Can MELT help? This is a question I’ve had and in my clinical application I think it helps tremendously.

MELT sequences like the Rebalance Sequence or the MELT Hand or Foot Treatment seem to almost immediately reduce unneeded inflammation in the body’s connective tissues. Visually you can see the reduction depending on where in the body the inflammatory process is occurring. Clients also say their symptoms of pain are significantly reduced even in just one MELT session.

Regardless of your disorder, consider self-care to reduce the unneeded inflammatory responses cells create so you heal faster and better. This will get you back to your daily life with less stress, more energy, and focus.

More to come on this topic I’m sure. I’ll fill you in as I learn more myself!
