A series of simple muscle manipulations will help children with asthma breathe better, quiet a colicy baby and eliminate bed-wetting.
Amber Korobkina, owner of Let it Heal Bowen Therapy Clinic, admits that people don’t associate bed-wetting, colic and asthma with the back. In the case of asthma sufferers, the Bowen technique is applied to the muscles of the back. The treatment includes pressing under the ribs to the diaphragm and in some cases could include work on the throat.
“Our success rate is absolutely great with children who suffer from asthma as well as adults,” says Korobkina.

PALPACION ABDOMINAL: Es el cuarto paso de un examen abdominal y a su vez es el paso más informativo del examen. No obstante Stanilad et al (13) apuntan que solo 1/3 de casos presentan dolor sobre la zona correspondiente al órgano lesionado. Aunque son muchos los datos que se pueden obtener en una palpación correcta del abdomen, hemos de prestar atención a:
Iniciar la exploración en la zona distante a la localización del dolor y acercarse a este de forma progresiva. La intensidad de la sensibilidad es muy poco útil dado su extrema subjetividad.
Presencia de dolor de rebote o Signo de Blumberg: Es indicativo de inflamación del peritoneo. Para que sea significativo, debe realizarse de forma correcta así ha de palparse con la palma de la mano extendida, manteniendo una presión constante, si esta no es dolorosa raramente habrá rebote; debe mantenerse la presión unos 30-60 segundos de esta manera el dolor originado por la presión irá disminuyendo, cuando esté desprevenido el enfermo se soltará bruscamente la mano del abdomen, bajo estas circunstancias una simple muesca es indicativo de rebote positivo. No podemos olvidar que el hecho de tener signo de rebote positivo, no indica indefectiblemente patología quirúrgica, dado que hasta un 20% de procesos patológicos intrabdominales no quirúrgicos presentan signo de rebote positivo (3, 5, 6, 7).
Presencia de defensa muscular y contractura. Lo más importante de este apartado es diferenciar la contractura voluntaria que realiza el enfermo por la simple palpación de aquella otra involuntaria que está presente por muy minuciosa que sea la exploración. La presencia de contractura involuntaria indica peritonitis y necesidad de cirugía (6, 7).
Signo de Murphy: Es un signo clásicamente descrito como guía del diagnóstico de colecistitis. Consiste en realizar la palpación por debajo del reborde costal derecho, esto produce un aumento del dolor cuando el paciente realiza una inspiración profunda al chocar la vesícula inflamada con la mano.
Hemos de explorar también los movimientos de la pared abdominal para descartar patología a este nivel. Se apoya la palma de la mano sobre la parte superior del abdomen y se invita al enfermo a que realice una inspiración profunda intentando que su estómago choque con nuestra mano, si con esta maniobra el dolor no aumenta la movilidad de la pared es normal.
Examination of the abdomen is often forgotten in today's world of advanced diagnostic technology. Yet, it is very revealing when performed in a systematic and thorough manner. The following guidelines will be helpful.
*** Auscultation is relatively less important in the abdomen than in the thorax. It seldom yields meaningful information in a routine examination, but it is of extreme importance in evaluation of abdominal pain.
*** Percussion of the abdomen usually does not play an important role in the assessment of abdominal pain. It is primarily used to establish the presence of distention, tumors, fluid, and enlargement of solid viscera.
*** Therefore, palpation takes on great importance for examining the abdomen. It is rather difficult to actually palpate the abdominal organs because they are separated from the examining hand by a relatively thick, muscular wall. But this is exactly what we are searching for, i.e., muscle contraction or stress points that share the same spinal innervation as the underlying organ.
*** Remember that the only time these stress points can be found is when the organ is stressed and unable to perform its responsibilities for maintaining homeostasis. Once the stress passes, the muscle contraction disappears.
The most important point to bear in mind as we discuss abdominal palpation is distinguishing between deep pain found in the viscera, and superficial pain found in the muscular abdominal wall.
*** Myofascial trigger points in an abdominal muscle may produce referred abdominal pain and symptoms such as projectile vomiting, anorexia and nausea, intestinal colic, diarrhea, urinary bladder and sphincter spasms, and dysmenorrhea. When such visceral symptoms occur with abdominal pain and tenderness, the combination can strongly mimic acute visceral disease, especially appendicitis and cholelithiasis (Travell).
*** In addition, abdominal trigger points may be secondary to visceral disorders such as, peptic ulcer, intestinal parasites, dysentery, ulcerative colitis, diverticulosis, diverticulitis, and cholelithiasis. Abdominal trigger points may also accompany such vague complaints as burning, fullness, bloating, swelling and gas
Recently, ginger has also been discovered as one of the best anti-depressants especially in the natural way to cure mental disorders. It is much in vogue as a great home remedy for flatulence and colic pain or disturbances.
Other Gallbladder treatment
application of hot packs or fomentation to the upper abdominal area.
The pain of gallstone colic can be relieved by the application of hot packs or fomentation to the upper abdominal area.
Warm-water enema, Physical exercise
A warm-water enema at body temperature will help eliminate faecal acculumations if the patient is constipated. Physical exercise is also essential. Surgery becomes necessary if the gallstones are very large or in cases where they have been present for long.
Gall Bladder Removal, also known as Cholecystectomy, is a procedure performed under general anesthesia. The surgeon makes an incision in your stomach and lifts the gallbladder through the incision. The gall bladder removal surgery may take about an hour or or more.
The most common gall bladder pain is Biliary Gallbladder Pain or Colic. The symptoms include acute pain in the upper or upper-right abdomen, accompanied by nausea and vomiting.
Gall Bladder diet, Pancreas, Liver, Spleen, kidney Stones
Gall Bladder diet includes more fruits and vegetables such as Cucumbers, Beet, Tomatoes, Shallots, Grapes, Apple, Pears. Striclty avoid egges, pork, chicken, fried foods and trans fat oils when you are on a gallbladder diet.
Does gall bladder disorder affect the pancreas, liver or spleen in any way? Do Kidney stones have any negative effects on the gall bladder?

Gallbladder pain is (often misspelled "gall bladder") an all-inclusive term used to describe any pain due to disease related to the gallbladder. The major gallbladder problems that produce gallbladder pain are biliary colic, cholecystitis, gallstones, pancreatitis, and ascending cholangitis. Symptoms vary and may be triggered by eating certain foods. The pain may be described as intermittent, constant, abdominal, radiating to the back, mild to severe depending on the underlying cause.
A brief review of the gallbladder anatomy and function may help readers better understand gallbladder pain. The gallbladder is connected to the liver via ducts that supply bile to the gallbladder for storage. These bile ducts then form the common hepatic duct that joins with the cystic duct from the gallbladder to form the common bile duct that empties into the GI tract (duodenum). In addition, the pancreatic duct usually merges with the common bile duct just before it enters the duodenum. Hormones trigger the gallbladder to release bile when fat and amino acids reach the duodenum after eating a meal, which facilitates the digestion of these foods. Statistics suggest that women may have up to twice the incidence of gallstones than men.
As stated previously, the major gallbladder problems that produce gallbladder pain are biliary colic, cholecystitis, gallstones, pancreatitis, and ascending cholangitis. There are two major causes of pain that either originate from the gallbladder or involve the gallbladder directly. They are due to 1) intermittent or complete blockage of any of the ducts by gallstones; or 2) gallstone sludge and/or inflammation that may accompany irritation or infection of the surrounding tissues, when partial or complete obstruction of ducts causes pressure and ischemia (inadequate blood supply due to a blockage of blood vessels in the area) to develop in the adjacent tissues.

Most cases of gallstones don't cause any symptoms. But if a gallstone blocks one of the bile ducts, it can cause sudden, severe abdominal pain, known as biliary colic.
Other symptoms may develop if the blockage is more severe or develops in another part of the digestive system.
Abdominal pain biliary colic
Gallstones can cause sudden, severe abdominal pain that usually lasts one to five hours although it can sometimes last just a few minutes.
The pain can be felt:
in the centre of your abdomen tummy
just under the ribs on your right-handside – it may spread from here to your side or shoulder blade
The pain is constant and isn't relieved when you go to the toilet, pass wind or are sick. It's sometimes triggered by eating fatty foods, but may occur at any time of day and it may wake you up during the night.
Biliary colic doesn't happen often. After an episode of pain, it may be several weeks or months before you experience another episode.
Some people also have periods where they sweat excessively and feel sick or vomit.
When gallstones cause episodes of biliary colic, it is known as 'uncomplicated gallstone disease'.
The toxic nature of lead is well documented. Lead affects all organs and functions of the body to varying degrees. The frequency and severity of symptoms among exposed individuals depends upon the amount of exposure. The list below shows many of the key lead-induced health effects.
Fatigue / Irritability
Wrist / Foot drop
Lead line on gingival tissue
Reduced sperm count & motility

While some kidney stones may not produce symptoms (known as "silent" stones), people who have kidney stones often report the sudden onset of excruciating, cramping pain in their low back and/or side, groin, or abdomen. Changes in body position do not relieve this pain. The abdominal, groin, and/or back pain typically waxes and wanes in severity, characteristic of colicky pain (the pain is sometimes referred to as renal colic). It may be so severe that it is often accompanied by nausea and vomiting. The pain has been described by many as the worst pain of their lives, even worse than the pain of childbirth or broken bones. Kidney stones also characteristically cause bloody urine. If infection is present in the urinary tract along with the stones, there may be fever and chills. Sometimes, symptoms such as difficulty urinating, urinary urgency, penile pain, or testicular pain may occur due to kidney stones.
A kidney stone may not cause symptoms until it moves around within your kidney or passes into your ureter — the tube connecting the kidney and bladder. At that point, you may experience these signs and symptoms:
Severe pain in the side and back, below the ribs
Pain that radiates to the lower abdomen and groin
Pain that comes in waves and fluctuates in intensity
Pain on urination
Pink, red or brown urine
Cloudy or foul-smelling urine
Nausea and vomiting
Persistent need to urinate
Urinating more often than usual
Fever and chills if an infection is present
Urinating small amounts
Pain caused by a kidney stone may change — for instance, shifting to a different location or increasing in intensity — as the stone moves through your urinary tract.
The occurrence of a kidney stone in a child is a relatively rare event. In countries where plants are the main source of protein in the diet, for example Southeast Asia, the Middle East, India, and Eastern Europe, the frequency of kidney stone disease in children rises. In developing countries, kidney stones made of uric acid are more commonly found.
Symptoms of kidney stones in children are similar to those in an adult, although with very young children or infants, the symptoms may be harder to appreciate and understand. The initial finding in an infant may be a crying and inconsolable baby, and the presentation may be mistaken for colic.
What Are Staghorn Calculi?
Some stones grow very large and fill the entirety of the kidney collecting system. They are called staghorn calculi (calculus = stone) because they look like antlers. While most kidney stones are made up of calcium oxalate crystals, this type of stone is a composite of struvite, carbonate, and apatite. They are usually the result of recurrent urinary tract infections, in which the bacteria produce ammonia, allowing chemicals in the urine to form the nidus for stone formation.

When a tubular structure is blocked in the body, waves of pain occur as the body tries to unblock the obstruction. These waves of pain are called colic. This is opposed to non-colicky type pain, like that associated with appendicitis or pancreatitis, in which movement causes increased pain and the patient tries to hold very still.
The gallbladder isn't an organ that gets a lot of attention — unless it's causing you pain.
The gallbladder is a little sac that stores bile from the liver, and it's found just beneath your liver.
The gallbladder releases bile, via the cystic duct, into the small intestine to help break down the foods you eat — particularly fatty foods.
Typically the gallbladder doesn't cause too many problems or much concern, but if something slows or blocks the flow of bile from the gallbladder, a number of problems can result.
What Can Go Wrong
Some common gallbladder problems include:
Gallstones (cholelithiasis) This is the condition when small stones, or sometimes larger ones, develop inside the gallbladder.
Gallstones may cause pain known as biliary colic (see below), but about 90 percent of people with gallstones will have no symptoms.
Most symptomatic gallstones have been present for a number of years.
For unknown reasons, if you have gallstones for more than 10 years, they are less likely to cause symptoms.
