Causes of Bowel Obstruction
Small bowel obstruction (SBO) is usually caused by adhesions that occur in the small intestines (small bowels). Post-surgical adhesions are the leading cause of blockage in the small intestines; they cause 60% of all small bowel obstructions. SBO is quite prevalent, and it accounts for 20% of all acute surgical admissions in the USA.1
Adhesions and Bowel Obstruction
Adhesion formation in the small bowel is generally a gradual process. Adhesions form in the bowel after surgery, inflammation or infection, and can partially or totally block the intestines over time.
While total small bowel obstruction is a life-threatening condition that requires immediate hospitalization, recent data shows that partial bowel obstruction may be reversible by a program of physical therapy designed to decrease or eliminate adhesions. Thus, the progression to total obstruction and surgery may be delayed or eliminated by non-surgical means.
Adhesions formation is often a gradual process that occurs after a trauma, surgery, infection or inflammation.
Surgical Treatment May Cause Recurring Obstructions
Historically, partial bowel obstruction often led to total bowel obstruction, followed by emergency surgery. Since surgery is also the leading cause of bowel obstruction, many patients found themselves in an ongoing cycle of surgery-adhesions-surgery as both surgeon and patient tried to cope with the near-inevitable formation of adhesions after surgery. Surgeons use various methods to try to decrease reformation of adhesions, but ongoing studies yielding statistics like those above show that post-surgical adhesion prevention remains an elusive goal.
Non-Surgical Treatment: The Wurn Technique
A new manual physical therapy called the Wurn Technique is designed to reduce or eliminate adhesions. This therapy is helping people who suffer recurrent small bowel obstruction or abdominal adhesions break the cycle of surgery and adhesions, and return to a pain-free, functional lifestyle – without surgery.

Hope all’s well today!
I ran across this interesting little tool for those ever needing help with medical symptoms. I personally think it organizes better than Google or the main search engines even!
It’s called medgle: http://www.medgle.com
Try it out and let me know what you think.
I used it to help a client find out if they are really suffering from hemorrhoids or not and sure enough they were after checking in the symptoms. I then immediately suggested to them to use the natural approaches and not resort to surgery - once again another success story with Hemorrhoid Miracle’s cure.
This is coming from a patient who was suffering painful piles and had to quit her job as a receptionist because it got so unbearable sittingdown all day. Remember, in natural therapy… little things and habits matter such as what foods to eat, how you spend your day, etc.
Sometimes we miss the forest for the trees and try to look for this eternal solution when all it takes is a series of little known natural rememdies and a full adjust of habits. That’s it!
I’m about to go out and have some Thanksgiving dinner with my family
… Mmmmmm, thinking of all the yumminess that will come to my
Stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy…. all the succulent good stuff!
Now, the following applies to anyone who eats a huge meal without
thinking about it.
Just don’t forget a few things guys:
1. Drink a glass of water before you splurge. Trust me, this will
regular how much you binge eat.
2. Take a walk sometime after you eat. It will definitely help
3. Make sure you eat slow and ENJOY! This regulates how you feel
fullness. It also helps you from gaining excessive weight.
These are my tips to keep in mind…. because I myself am quite
a binge eater - in the past and even today!
Ciao and seeya soon!
As winter rolls around the corner, I’ll be preparing for another
great time of the year => holidays with family…
Now, naturally because we’ll probably be stuffing ourselves with lots
of good food, I wanted to remind you of a few rules to keep your
digestive health AWESOME.
Three rules of thumb:
1. Don’t overeat - make sure you drink a good glass of water if you
feel like you need to devour after being starved. Yes, it’s tempting
to devour but be careful of your health.
2. Make sure your colon stays clean through regular bowel movement
and ideally a colon cleanse.
3. Take a walk every morning. Freshens your lungs and makes you
VERY healthy. Do it now if you don’t this morning.
… Once again …..
It’s been said in ancient Chinese medicine that “All health is
Just last week, I had a consultation with a client of mine (name not revealed) who recently came out of a surgical procedure. The problem he was describing to me was that he lost some control over his sphincter. This can lead to several things and causes contraction of the anal muscles to malfunction.
What can he do?
I’ll be answerting this on behalf of many readers as I suspect the same may happen to some who go for the surgical route.
Always see if your doctor provides follow-up therapy for this. This means months (sometimes) of re-training the muscle so that it can get back in its original nervous shape hopefully. Exercise of the nerves is KEY.
The second thing to perform is to stimulate the area using various alternative “blood circulating” herbs. These can do wonders in the process.
I want to give you these two tips at first and I may dedicate a later post on this issue. I also recommend some of the prevention techniques inside the hemorrhoid miracle system to be used in conjunction. These are the most ideal ways to help yourself transition through back to a state thart’s best as you can possibly make it.
I want you to start a very simple habit starting today….
This habit is so simple yet can go a very long way for good digestive
health, which is the cornerstone for preventing so many diseases that
we fear. Don’t place your health at risk…. try this….
Do this and I promise you’ll live a longer, healthier life.
Every morning, make sure to end your meal with a piece of fruit.
I don’t care if it’s a serving or a simple piece … just eat it.
Get in the habit of doing this and it will do wonders for your
body in the long run. This gets the digestive cycle going smoother
for the rest of the day.
People have also asked me any other ways to accelerate a cycle and
another thing I like to do is to drink a glass of water with some
sea salt in it. This can help as well occasionally.
Try it today. I gave you this piece of advice because I want you to
take action right now. Always remember to eat that piece of fruit
right at breakfast.
