Faja (Spanish word for belt/wrap)
Very easily put on, and to wear.
Please see what Rosita Arvigo says on this first . .
Watch the video below and also see step by step there also.
More written on this here – please note that it is NOT to be tied as in this picture. .
Not so strange – Men when weight lifting – wear a supportive belt.
As with all of us – especially women who have just birthed . .
In other cultures – after a baby is born – mum’s belly needs to be supported until the birthing hormones and the body settle back to normal – and often this is not happening as she gets pregnant and breastfeeds repeatedly. What to do? Support all tissues.
Rachel and her back/belly
After years of backache that nothing helped – it was a true miracle to NOT have it – just with a piece of cloth!!!
Zoe – constant back ache – a uni student, always had a sore back as she has been afflicted all her short life. After working with her undoing all the cold stored in her body, and the use of moxa at home – with plenty of topical magnesium daily (and a lot of Vit D so she can absorb it) – she arrived for her regular session – and I took her outside to use the moxa and then put the faja on her – instant – NO pain at all . Astounding – given that she was in unbearable constant pain just a few short months before – and no help from any physical therapist or the medications as pain ‘control’ – really all that was neeed was the support,
Kaylene and back/legs
Overweight and previously bothered by massive back weakness. The difference in a humble piece of cloth in relieving all – so she felt totally light again!!!
Joy after many children and heavily pregnant again – with very difficult legs, excessive varicose veins and swelling such that a wheelchair is an option. Bound up in the jaja – she could not believe the difference.
Not just the women though . .
David with very badly afflicted with extreme prostate swelling
Wearing the faja gives him great back relief – as the internal swelling causes substantial misalignment in the belly – the faja supports all within, allowing him to continue his heavy job far easier.
Harry and his back
With great reluctance, he agreed to try this on – as usual – instant difference – and when it was taken off – the heaviness/stress/ general discomfort he always lives with is back again. Much easier to wear teh cheap and comfortable support
Garry and his testicles –
Arrived as he had what amounts to another testicle growing – a huge cyst – which COULD be surgically removed but the surgeon did not sound too hopeful about it being safe for the real testicles. He then tried on a faja – and could not believe it – no pressure – he was standing taller and there was significant support- no pressure at all as though he did not have a massive heavy cyst there. He also was instantly standing taller – not looking like a hunched over weighed down old man!!!
You don’t think you need one?
Wait till you take it off!!!
Me – no reason I thought – till I put it on – and did not want to take it off – I suspect that we all wander about with a weakness that we are so used to – it is never noticed.
With no apparent signs or symptoms, you will be amazed at how much better you feel with it on – and how surprising how much
It may be strange for you to think that women all over the world, (when they were the tenderers and the looker-afterers) did things to assist each other – in their own homes, as part of their cultural heritage. How did we lose this? Easy – handed over authority of our bodies and lives to ‘science’ based meanderings that have not held the test of time.
How to put on a Faja
See a slideshow here
or a video below:
Totally different and way more involved than a faja. (faja is super easy and instant), but does a very different job to the belly binding.
Belly binding still pregnant .. with a woven wrap.
This is a variant to assist holding everything in . .esp for the back
She mentions pelvic pressure – this is easiest with very diligent topical magnesium application (maybe 6x daily) and also taking a LOT of Vit D daily – to assist the absorption – and a lot more dietary fat (what baby and brain, and hormones are all made of – just avoid all sugars ).
