Eurythmy Therapy for Abdominal Pain

When treating pain, it is usually advisable to start at the periphery and enter into fluid movement there. Once this has been achieved, we go with the resulting flow of movement to the cramp-like condensing movement caused by the pain, to “flood” it to a certain extent and thereby dissolve or at least alleviate it.

Therapeutic recommendations

  • Swinging movement in a figure-eight pattern
    The effective sounds are mainly “I”, “finger I” and “S”, the sound sequence “L – M – S” and “EI”, to bring the movement into a swinging figure eight pattern, comparable to the rocking of a child. The use of a copper ball can be very helpful (known as the “ball figure eight”).

  • For abdominal pain “M” and “D”
    M” and “D” are particularly helpful in treating abdominal pain. “M” is a kind of “miracle sound” in movement, which gently and intimately stimulates the flow in the fluid organism and thus leads to relaxation.

  • The sound movements “L” and “D”
    A small “L” and “D” with the feet or toes can have a soothing effect. In case of pain, it can also be useful to move the feet passively, because this creates a deepening feeling of well-being that leads to a loosening or resolution. The patient often subsequently falls asleep.

Research news

Safety of anthroposophic medicines ensured!
Anthroposophic medicinal products (AMPs) are widely used in Europe and worldwide. A retrolective safety analysis of pharmacovigilance data included 99.4% (1596/1606) of all AMPs marketed in Germany during the study period 2010 - 2017. The relative frequency of adverse drug reactions for AMPs was 1.5 per million maximum daily doses sold. The vast majority of patients (91.9%) recovered or were recovering from adverse reactions and there were no reports of fatal outcomes. The original article with detailed results is published open access:
