Foundation of Wise Womb Medicine
– The womb is a hollow, suspensory, detoxification organ – that moves in and out of optimal alignment.
The Womb moves in order to expand and contract with the menstrual cycle, and pregnancy. Because the womb is a suspensory organ and held place in by ligaments she can become displaced from her optimal position. If the womb isn’t in optimal position she and other related systems of flow won’t get the nourishment they need to be in their full divine expression, as organs and as collaborative systems.
When our organs aren’t in optimal alignment they cannot function at peak potential. The energy can’t flow, the womb can’t "dance" (contract and expand) which leads to stagnation and disconnection. The womb is the center of a woman's body so placement and alignment can impact a woman’s health on every level: spiritually, emotionally and physically.
There are many factors to womb health; the physical placement or position of the womb will affect the ligaments, muscles, systems of flow and impact hormone levels. Childbearing, poor digestion, systemic inflammation, malnutrition, injuries to the pelvis as well as excessive exercise while menstruating all can attribute to a displaced womb.
Symptoms include PMS, pelvic pain, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, PCOS, constipation, cramping, cycle pain, dark blood clots, ovulation pain, low back pain, lethargy, chronic miscarriages, depression and anxiety.
On the emotional level there can be a sense of isolation, sadness and ultimately disconnection, trauma, heartbreak, and loss.
On an energetic/spiritual level the womb is a women's center – she is our place of creativity, connection to the earth and to our ancestral lineage. As a hollow detoxification organ she can hold our wounds, our sexual experiences and often becomes the storage center of our deepest fears and shame. She is often the place we keep experiences we don’t want to see or feel, as well as our deepest denials.
