Constitutional treatment in sujok therapy
Category : Uncategorized
In Sujok therapy through constitutional treatment, we treat not only the disease, but the patient as a whole. If constitution is not known , then better to treat through axial relation. Energy constitution gives information about the strong and weak energies of an individual, and general amount of energies present in chakras and meridians of that person. Constitution of healthy person has some energies excess and some energies deficient but all the energies are within the margin of norm. In case of diseased constitution, the energies are either very low, or very high, and away from the margin of norm. A healthy constitution has flexibility of energy, whereas a diseased person has lost that ability to come back to normal range of energies, by self-harmonizing process. Before physical manifestation, rigidity of constitution appears at mental and emotional levels by very strong likes and dislikes.
Constitutional treatment does not change the whole constitution, but gives some flexibility to energies (diseased) so that they can stay within the normal range. Constitution of a healthy person is difficult to diagnose, because everything is in moderate range and adjusting within the margin of norm.
Pathological energies are easy to diagnose.
Congenital constitution is present by birth, it is influenced by parents, energy of time, space and time of conception. Acquired constitution occurs after birth because a person goes through various changes in time, space and energies throughout lifetime. If somebody is born with excess or deficient energy, then that energy has a tendency to create some problem throughout the life. Acquired or current constitution is of most importance, when the patient comes for treatment.
In five elements we hv 10 axis but in six ki we hv 15 axis( 10 five elements axis and 5 axis of each element with hotness energy ).
If we add brightness and Darkness it will make 28 axis.
In Five elements unit constitution is 10 ( 5 excessive +5 deficiency )
In six ki unit constitution is of 26 types.
1) Symmetrical constitution – 8 types (vertical axis – 2+ Sagittal axis -2+ Frontal axis- 2+ internal- external homo -hetero – 2 types)
2) Cross linked constitution – 12types
3) Constitution of unification of 4 energies – 6 types.
Sometimes patients move from one symmetrical constitution to other through cross linked constitution. Symmetrical constitution are most stable . symmetrical constitution has one of the axis as main axis
1. III-VI(Vertical axis )
2. I-IV (Sagittal axis)
3. II-V ( Frontal axis)
Symmetrical constitution is of two types.
We use to have both unified and individual constitution. We have to decide our treatment on the basis of dominant energy. If patient has dominant energy on unit level then we hv to treat on unit constitution and if patient has dominant energy on individual level then we hv to use individual constitution. To become good therapist we should try to find both constitution of the patient.
Vertical axis dominates when patient has good height, especially if excessive, during period of growth. But any axis may change with time. Vertical axis dominant during wind and heat period may remain no longer dominant at later age, even if person is tall by height. Vertical axis dominate during daytime ( 10am – 6 pm). If disease aggravates during this time, then may be vertical axis is dominant. Every organism receives brightness from brightness chakra above sahasrara, and darkness energy from darkness chakra below kundalini. This creates a vertical ( spiritual) axis for anyone residing b/w heaven and earth. This spiritual axis gives support to any axis which coincides ( overlaps) with it. Whenever we are in standing or sitting position, additional energy comes to the III-VI axis, therefore symptoms may aggravate. For fast development of children and giving energy to nervous system, babies should be held in vertical position more often, especially helpful in case of retarded children. Summer time activates vertical axis. People of vertical axis may be active during this season.
Sagittal axis: If this axis dominates then growing of belly, buttocks will manifest in the body. This axis activates during pregnancy, because new wind starts and embryo grows in amniotic fluid (humidity). Then lactation occurs. Lying down position, either on belly or on spine can aggravate any existing symptoms, because this axis overlap with VII-VIII axis. Sagittal axis gets activated during winter, therefore lots of hibernation occurs. Sagittal axis is active during night (10pm-6am).
Frontal axis can be recognized by broad shoulder, wide face, eyes apart from each other, short fingers, hypersthetic structure. Lying on either side activates frontal axis, because it then overlaps with VII-VIII axis. Spring and autumn can aggravate frontal axis. Morning (6am-10am) and evening (6pm-10pm) is time for frontal axis.
On unit level Constitution can be of excessiveness or of deficiency.
Constitution can be of excessiveness if patient has enough energy and can be of deficiency if patient has less energy. Excessive constitution begins with sedation and deficient with tonification of dominant or deficiency energy.
When vertical axis is dominant, frontal axis becomes supplementary axis, and saggital axis is absent, therefore problems related to back and front are more often because the harmonizing axis is not there.
when frontal axis dominant, sagittal axis becomes supplementary. Here vertical axis is absent. In this case, patient suffers from diseases above and below the diaphragm e.g. cerebral palsy. Energy imbalance in the III-IV axis.
When sagittal axis is dominant, vertical axis becomes supplementary axis, and frontal axis is missing. This leads to energy imbalance in left-right body parts, since axis of symmetry is not there.
On individual level constitution can be either of ah or um type . It is observed that females are more UM in constitution, whereas, males are more AH in constitution. Anyways, if the patient has more AH energy in general then treatment should begin with either sedation of AH energy or tonification of UM energy. If the patient has more UM energy then treatment should begin with either tonification of AH energy or sedation of UM energy. It is better to begin treatment with AH energies and allow UM to follow.
One more type of symmetrical constitution is Ho-He internal-external type. Here the main axis of energy is between brightness and darkness. Solar chakra, like sun has darkness at nucleus and brightness part sends rays in all direction. Skin pores are physical manifestation of the way brightness penetrates our body. In this type of constitution, diseases of internal body, manifests itself on outer body (psoriasis). Even external energy like coldness easily enters our body through various openings and like Ho, sticky molecules gets attached to internal body parts like bones. When we sweat a lot through physical activities or sauna, then these Ho particles, leave our internal body through skin pores.
I have discussed here only about symmetrical constitution in six ki.
