The therapeutic trinity of "Belly-Way Clinic"
Have you ever heard of a method for curing bowel diseases by sitting in a pyramid?
If not, you are invited to continue reading…
No, we haven’t lost our mind, and were not influenced by any witch doctor. J
Instead we've developed a method that works.
No need to travel all the way to Egypt, all you need to do is practice it right here, in Israel.
Our method is simple and is based on the integrative method of "therapeutic trinity" of the "Belly Way Clinic ".
What is this "therapeutic trinity" and how can you benefit from it?
To help you to understand it better, we' invite to meet Noa.
Noya, a beautiful 28 year old woman was suffering from Crohn's disease. In fact she wasn’t suffering from her Crohn's, but from Irritable bowel syndrome symptoms (IBS), which often accompany Crohn's and Ulcerative colitis, even when patients are in remission. All of Noa's tests were negative, the medication she was on' was probably working.
But Noa was suffering. Bloating, pain and cramps were part of her everyday life. Morning diarrhea would not let her leave the house early in order to get to work on time, and she was constantly late. She would not go on dates because she was always afraid of bloating and gas revealing her secrete. She quit her studies because the pressure she was under during exams would make things worse. Noa was feeling hopeless.
One day her mother, which was desperately trying to find something to help her daughter, discovered "Belly Way Clinic " and convinced Noa to give it a chance. Noa, which has tried several alternative therapies and has even stopped some psychological consultations in the past, agreed to try something new.
To her credit, she was dedicated. In an initial session about her expectations from the treatment, we informed her that there is no magic, and that she would have to be patient and prepare for a long journey together. Noa was completely recruited, which is necessary to get the desired remission.
Noa's therapy included listening to recorded lectures about nutrition for bowel diseases. These lectures were recorded by Adi Zusman RD, a senior clinical dietitian and the founder & CEOof "Belly way". They taught her how to diagnose herself according to the "Traffic-light approach". She learned how to adjust her diet to every situation, how to choose her foods, what to eliminate from her diet and what to eat more regularly. She learned how to chew and drink properly. Her mother, watched the lectures with her, learned what foods to buy, how to prepare and cook them especially for Noa.
Simultaneously, Noa started getting treated with Chinese medicine. Alon Maya, our Chinese medical doctor specializes in bowel diseases, diagnosed Noa and adapted a therapeutic plan especially for her needs. Her therapy included acupuncture and herbal remedies. Also, Alon taught Noa to treat herself with massaging special spots to relief pain and bloating.
But what about all the stress of everyday life with bowel diseases? Noa wanted to re-enroll to law school and was willing to do all it would take to be able to stand up to the pressure of the profession. Here is where we appointed her to Amir Zmora, a mindfulness psychotherapist, which also practiced other east-west techniques. Noa had a great connection with Amir, she was inspired by the fact that he himself had suffered from colitis in the past and met him for weekly sessions. Among others, Amir taught Noa how to relax her body, how to breathe properly when she is feeling stressed. Noa discovered a wonderful world of meditation, which was never something she could do, but was now enjoying and practicing it on a daily basis.
Meet Noa, a beautiful 28 year old women, which once suffered from Crohn's disease and from Irritable bowels. Today she is no longer suffering, she doesn't have time, she started school again, met a nice guy. Every now and then, when she is very tired, her belly reminds her to treat it nicely. But Noa knows what to do and how to keep herself healthy. She is now in control. When friends ask her what changed, she replies, mysteriously smiling: "I spent six months sitting in a pyramid".
We packed the entire method in to one easy "digestible" method. We built a variety of programs based on our therapeutic trinity. Among them are the "relax the body and mind" workshop, an internet based course "Eat without suffering", escorted by personal dietary counseling, clinical sessions, free online manuals, lectures and conferences.
