Abdominal Adhesions - Herbal Softening Program - McDowell's Herbal Treatments


An adhesion is a band of scar tissue that binds 2 parts of tissue together, which should be separate. Adhesion's may appear as thin sheets of tissue similar to plastic wrap, or as thick fibrous bands.

Adhesive tissue develops in the abdomen, almost as a protective mechanism, in any case where the energy or integrity of the abdominal cavity is disrupted or shocked. This could be through surgery, infection, trauma, or radiation.

Abdominal adhesions are a common complication of surgery, occurring in up to 90% of people who undergo abdominal or pelvic surgery. Adhesion's also occur in 10% of people who have never had surgery.

Holistically, abdominal adhesions are seen as an overly protective response to the intrusion (surgical or energetic) into this area, which we instinctively protect being soft and exposed.

Many routine surgical procedures of the past created more problems than they solved (appendectomy and ovarian cyst operations particularly) and these have been largely discontinued unless unavoidable. Any person exhibiting keloid scarring should avoid abdominal surgery at almost any cost.

 McDowell's Herbal Practice provides a herbal mix to assist in softening adhesions that are involved in abdominal pain, fertility or bowel problems.

  • Adhesions/Softening Program; Chamomile, Elecampane, Equisetum and Liquorice along with the Bach Flower Remedies Walnut, Mimulus and Red Chestnut.

This mix is taken three times daily at a dose rate of 20 drops and is continued for 6 to 12 months at least. In a severe case I would recommend also a program of energetic healing (like Reiki) especially in the regions of the second and third chakras.
