Muscle Driver (ED-9)
Infoceutical ED 9, Muscle Driver, can be used for symptomatic support of both acute and chronic muscle issues, such as recovery after athletics as well as support for release of deep myofascial issues. Initial use can stimulate some needed deep cleansing which can result in some temporary muscle soreness. About half the body weight is muscle tissue, which is formed embryologically on the deepest layer along with the kidneys. In the Clinical Theory of Everything, we call this tissue layer the Flow System.
Energetic Driver Infoceutical ED9
Bottom Line: Muscles and Joints, Animation and Release
With Muscle Driver we are looking at the energy and movement of your muscular system, including your muscles, joints and connective tissues. The energy field is generated by this system as it contracts and relaxes and by the many chemical exchanges that occur with this activity. It’s the largest group of tissues in the body and, as such, has a considerable influence on your energy needs and metabolism. It is also our largest sensory system, an interconnected network of tissues through which we feel our way through life. This is a dynamic system. We want it to be energised, strong and powerful but giving and flexible too.
Errors in muscle metabolism may result in pain, tension, restricted movement or fatigue. A priority here may simply mean, however, that you could enhance muscle performance in order to achieve your goals. Metabolic issues such as diabetes or excess body fat may call on the Muscle Driver for assistance. Muscles draw sugar from the bloodstream to fill their fuel stores so that they are ready for action when you need them to be and not totally dependent on your last meal. Muscles also help to maintain core body temperature by creating heat as their fibres move. In this way they help to support sugar regulation, insulin sensitivity and metabolism, which is something that can start to break down in many health conditions. The muscles themselves also act as a safety-net reserve for your body’s protein needs. Protein is used to make tissues of course, but also immune system cells, chemical messengers and enzymes. At times when protein needs exceed dietary intake, during illness or injury for instance, muscle protein can help to speed recovery.
Muscle memory is not just about never forgetting how to ride your bike. The muscles and particularly the muscle fascia (which is a fluid honeycomb-like structure of deep interconnected tissues that stretch through the body) hold the vibrational imprints of our experiences. If you’ve ever experienced feeling tearful during a massage it’s because an issue that has been locked away deep in the tissues has been released. Physical trauma to the muscles themselves, shocks and unresolved emotional issues are imprinted into our tissues. These can build up over time, layer upon layer, affecting how our muscular system moves and functions. They can also act as foci for pain or even physical illness. Consider too how your body posture could not only be mirroring how you are feeling but actually keeping you stuck in a particular frame of mind.
Issues: There is an intimate connection with the stomach and muscles in Chinese Medicine. A weak digestive system can result in a weakened muscular system. Toxins that can accumulate in the digestive tract, including heavy metals like cadmium and lead, can infiltrate the muscles and hinder their functioning. Other issues in the digestive tract, such as food intolerance or infection, can also have a knock-on effect on the muscles and joints. The muscles depend on a healthy flow of blood that supplies them with warmth, energy, oxygen and minerals. Consider the Circulation Driver and the quality of the blood with muscle issues. Always consider the metaphysical links with stresses and tensions in particular areas of the body – feeling burdened with the shoulders perhaps or digging your heels in and being inflexible with the knees. The Muscle Driver Infoceutical may be helpful with musculoskeletal issues such as arthritis, fibromyalgia and conditions with muscle weakness and fatigue.
ACTION: Flex, Tone and Release.
Questions: Am I moving and stretching enough? Am I nourishing my muscles (adequate protein, minerals, fluids, electrolytes)? In what ways could my posture be affecting my well-being? Is there a message in pain? What issues could be in my tissues?
Go For It:
- Resistance exercise builds muscle and strengthens your structure.
- Stretch it out. Incorporate stretching and bending into your day.
- Move. Incorporate movement into your day. Stand more (stand up every 20 minutes say), walk to work, take the stairs.
- Shake it out. Shake out tension through your arms and legs. Dance. Try Five Rhythms dance.
- Tune into your body. Notice areas of stress and tension. Can you release them?
- Therapies like massage, myofascial release, craniosacral therapy and osteopathy can be helpful. The miHealth can of course be used in various function modes (such as After Sport, Muscle, Acute and Chronic) to address musculoskeletal issues.
MUSCLE DRIVER INFOCEUTICAL:The Muscle Driver Infoceutical energises your muscular system, aiding in muscle growth, repair and recovery. It helps to detoxify the muscles and clear contaminants like heavy metals or waste products like lactic acid that are interfering with muscle function. It can help the muscles to take in oxygen and nutrients that drive their energy. And it can help to release emotional issues that are stored within these tissues. It can be a very useful support and enhancement to physical release therapies. Use it before or after sport to aid recovery. Sometimes muscles and joints can ache more initially as this system is cleared and re-energized.
