Natural Healing Remedies Atmore AL

We sometimes forget that our bodies are designed to provide us with everything we need to stay healthy. Immune cells fight infection, growth factors repair injury, stem cells regenerate tissue, and neurotransmitters manage emotional shock. Sometimes, however, illness renders our bodies unable to supply these elements, or injuries are so extreme that healing requires more of them than we naturally produce.

Fighting Illness Naturally

Provided by: 

By Larry Trivieri Jr.

We sometimes forget that our bodies are designed to provide us with everything we need to stay healthy. Immune cells fight infection, growth factors repair injury, stem cells regenerate tissue, and neurotransmitters manage emotional shock. Sometimes, however, illness renders our bodies unable to supply these elements, or injuries are so extreme that healing requires more of them than we naturally produce.

If only there were a source in our body to supply these in quantity: a flow that we could turn on and direct toward any area in need.

In fact, there is. It is a little-discussed—and little-understood—organ called the omentum. Comprised mainly of specialized fatty tissues, the omentum is approximately 14 inches long and 10 inches wide, and lies suspended from the stomach to form an apron-like covering for the intestines and lower abdomen.

The omentum was long thought to have little biological value, but now researchers are finding that it provides a variety of therapeutic benefits. The omentum has many of the features of the embryonic membrane and yolk sac that encloses the fetus in the womb. It is rich in blood vessels and lymphatics (lymph vessels that collect fluids exuded from blood vessels and return them to the blood), and produces a wealth of immunological agents, growth factors, neurotransmitters and stem cells.

The question is, how can the healing power of the omentum be harnessed to aid diseased or traumatized parts of the body? Pioneering work by Harry S. Goldsmith, M.D., a professor of surgery at the University of Nevada, is providing an answer. In the ’70s and ’80s, Goldsmith developed a procedure in which a section of the omentum is surgically lengthened and then channeled through the body to provide a direct source of blood and healing agents to specific areas, including the spinal cord or the brain.

The recipient of two honorary degrees, Goldsmith has published more than 200 scientific articles, half of them documenting the benefits of omental transposition, and edited two books on the subject. Following the introduction of his work in China, surgeons there have performed more than 5,000 omental transpositions to the brain and spinal cord. Goldsmith’s findings have been favorably received in many countries around the world, including England, Germany, Italy, Japan, Venezuela, India, Cuba, Lebanon and Singapore. In the United States, however, they remain largely ignored.

Therapeutic benefits
Omental transposition has been shown to dramatically enhance the healing of chronic and localized wounds, and to aid in the absorption and removal of excess fluids, or edema [see Quick Definition, page 68], toxins and metabolic waste. The omentum doesn’t just supply blood: It stimulates development of new blood vessels. As a result, when the omentum is surgically attached to certain body tissues, such as the brain or spinal cord, blood vessels from the omentum grow directly into the central nervous system, i...
