After 50 years of patient care, I finally saw my first “instant healing.”
Mom brought in her ten-week-old fussy son, who presented with the usual issues. After a tongue tie revision at four weeks, he still popped on and off and also had a clicking tongue, colic, and reflux.
On examination he had severe fascial strain from his pelvic floor into his diaphragm. I spent the first visit exclusively in that area. On the next visit mom said he was doing much better, but still had ocular discharge, or goopy eyes.
I found that fascial back strain was pulling into his neck and into both nasolacrimal ducts. He let us know that he was not happy when I got into that strain pattern.
While I was working his neck and back and mom was alternating holding over each eye, she related how she had to continually clean his eye discharge since his birth. The pediatrician made light of it, using the “outgrow it” line. If the issue does not clear up on its own, sometimes probing surgery may be needed to open the nasolacrimal ducts so that excess eye fluid can properly drain into the nasal cavity.
As we worked the strain out of each eye area, she noted that his eyes immediately seemed better. At the end of the session she saw that his goopy eyes were gone. His eyes were clear for the first time in his life. I was amazed myself, but she was literally blown away.
All of our infant conditions need many visits to peel the layers of trauma, but for this one baby and this one condition, mom and I saw it happen immediately. It was truly awesome.
Pediatricians need to understand that fascia is a big deal in their clinical practice. They need to step outside their technology, drug, and surgery box and open to the structural healing aspects of infants and children.
