A Love of the Abdomen
Every Abdomen tells a different & mysterious story
Your Abdominal Story varies from day to day Where are you today and where did it all begin? Bloated & crampy …Or full of energy & pain free!! Of course it depends on STRESS!!
It is the Curandero’s job to help you solve this mystery…by Being a good listener & Consejero and using Platicas. The Abdominal Sobada - to remove congestion & restore Ch’ulel. Maya Spiritual Healing – use of Copal, Limpias, Prayer. Diet & Medicinal Plant Remedies
Ch’ulel Ch’ulel –is the Maya word for chi, or life force energy is can be felt in the pulse… …it is originated and regulated from our Breathing source - the Diaphragm Ch’ulel & blood circulation, permeates every organ and cell in the body.

Feel your Ch’ulel Where is your breath coming from? Chest or Abdomen? Is it Shallow or Deep? Labored or Relaxed?
Ch’ulel & Sleeping
Emotions are the Origin of Physical Disease Liver=Anger, Gall Bladder= Unresolved Anger Large Intestine=Not Eliminating stress Solar Plexus/Diaphragm=image of self, expectations…can be hardest to release. Uterine Ligaments=Support in life Pelvis=Security, 1st Chakra Hernia=taking on too much, body is trying to making room
Traditional Maya Medicine …Does not separate the Physical from the Emotional Body. Emotional illnesses are recognized and treated Susto Tristeza Pezar Coraje Mal de Ojo...we store all of these in the Abdomen.
Emotions Reside in the Abdomen Maya Traditional Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Chakras system, all relate emotions to specific organs. ALL REPRODUCTIVE & DIGESTIVE ORGANS ARE LOCATED IN THE ABDOMEN. Can you see the importance of Maya Traditional Medicine…Through the Abdomen?
