Stretching Exercise for Hemorrhoids

Although the Edgar Cayce readings consistently recognized the importance of regular moderate exercise for maintaining health, the readings also sometimes prescribed specific therapeutic exercises to address a particular condition. Many of the readings given for persons with hemorrhoids recommended this exercise:

Take the exercise daily as we have indicated for this condition: Standing erect, gradually rise on the toes, at the same time, raising the hands slowly from the side, arms extended, until they are high above the head. Then bend forward as if trying to touch the floor with the finger tips. This done several times each day, very slowly, will gradually lift the sphincter muscle and thus remedy the hemorrhoid condition. (3678-1)

A very helpful exercise each morning and evening, also, would be the BENDING exercise with the hands raised high above the head, bending forward to bring the hands as close to the floor as possible. Do this for two or three minutes morning and evening. (4873-1)

Each morning on arising and each evening before retiring; stand erect - gradually rise on the toes (without any shoes on) and at the same time gradually raise the hands directly above the head, straight up. Then bend forward just as far as possible. Do this three times, night and morning. These will bring better conditions for this body. (3542-1)
