In CFT/IDM world, NEC and volvulus may be closely related since they both may deal with intestinal mesenteric fascial strain. NEC is a life-threatening NICU condition where the infant’s intestine becomes necrotic because of lack of proper blood flow and lymphatic drainage. We believe that the root cause may be craniosacral fascial mesenteric strain compressing the life-giving vessels.
In a similar vein an infant with volvulus, a type of intestinal soft-tissue malrotation and possible obstruction, may have a craniosacral fascial mesenteric strain creating an intestinal loop. Two questions arise: If an child/adult has volvulus and needs surgery, were the seeds of this condition sown at birth? Could the application of the BBS/CFT/IDM model have prevented the problem at birth?
