Sorry to hear about your colon. I had a friend who had part of his colon removed due to colon cancer. when the cancer was gone, they stretched out what reamined to reform a sphincter for him.

I would reccomend finding an expert in acupuncture, or an IMA practictioner authentically versed in chi meridians. I believe these tie closely with nerual pathways.

To me, the body is highly adaptable, i find it amazing how we can live sucessfully without organs like a kidney, lung, appendix, or spleen.

I think conceptually as part of the adapting process the body would redirect the chi meridans to compensate for such changes. I am by no means an expert, but i suspect that a real expert would be able to predict what the new pathways may be, prior to starting any serious IMA practice.

I think you could probably still practice IMA, but you would have to do a bit more homework then some others before starting.

hope that helps,
Ed

Batgirl,

I still agree with other posters that credentials need to be established, and frankly when I read your explanations and posts It makes me think xfiles.

I've read alot of IMA material, spoken with many IMA, and been practicing hsing-i for 2 months. I profess I don't know anything yet. I am just concentrating on learning the forms and connecting my body.

Anyways my point being. I haven't met anyone that talks about energy/chi ect. ect. like you. And I my b.s. meter goes off the charts every time.

I don't mean to be offensive, its just that sadly I think a lot of people get extremely skewed and flawed thoughts and beliefs about chi and the internal aspects of these arts.

I think the questions about your background training are valid. And "I took these 3 martial arts" is not an answer at all, especially when your trying to give advice that could ultimately affect this posters daily activities and general well being.

Batgirl:

I have a rather extensive library on qigong, neigong and the like...even many titles on other topics that you have mentioned in your post. Would you mind sharing a few of the titles that you indicate match up to the process, methods and ideas that you have espoused?

You would have to be more specific as to which ones. So I won't waste any time/energy with the nonessential. [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG]

its more a question that the guys like Lane, Meijin & Bossman can answer ...

My personal view is that despite the fact that the large intestine has been removed, the meridien is still or should still be functioning. It may have diminished flow of ki but the meridien is still there.

To help I would look at better grounding.

good topic.

Hi, MrEd

I don't have much to contribute, hence the silence.

Anyway; the LI (as any of the "organs") as thought of in TCM, is a far more extencive "idea" than what we in western med define as the large intestine, so my hunch goes in the same direction as reiki's.
Much of the functions that are included in the "chinese" LI should still be intact, but the balance is bound to be effected?

while i don't know very much at all about where the chi meridians are in the body i took the liberty of looking up both the chi meridians and the nervous system and here are the links to each.
http://www.innerbody.com/image/nervov.html

that is the link to the image of the nervous system and here is the one for the chi meridians.

anyways hope this helps.
