Heartburn & Swollen Body Parts



By Atom Bergstrom

Heartburn has very little to do with the PRODUCTION of stomach acid.

It has much more to do with its DISTRIBUTION.

Enzymes don’t matter either.

It’s not even heartburn — it’s gullet-burn.

Gullet-burn is provoked — not necessarily caused — by swollen organs pushing the stomach’s lower border above the belly button and/or to the left or right of its normal position.

Why are these organs swollen?


Gaseous bloating.

Carbon dioxide, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen, and sometimes methane cause SHAPE-SHIFTING, often resulting in central obesity — organ fat inside the peritoneal cavity.

Six-pack abs often camouflage visceral fat. Don’t rely on crunches to do away with heartburn.

Visceral fat is COVERT GAS.

A swollen spleen (splenomegaly) “doesn’t cause symptoms,” according to medical doctors.

Neither does a swollen pancreas (pancreatomegaly), they say.

Or a swollen liver (hepatomegaly), they say.

Or a swollen heart (cardiomegaly), they say.

Or swollen lymph glands (lymphadenomegaly), they say.

Or swollen intestines (enteromegaly), they say.

Or a swollen colon (colomegaly), they say.

Or a swollen prostate gland (prostamegaly “with significant post-void residue”), they say.

Or a swollen uterus (uteromegaly), they say.

Or swollen kidneys (renomegaly), they say.

According to Healthline Media (2016) …

“After urine builds up for an extended period, your kidney can enlarge. Your kidney may become so engorged with urine that it starts to press on nearby organs.”

Gas pressure is the covert cause of all these organ swellings.

All organs compete for real estate with the stomach and esophagus, often squeezing these two organs together at the lower esophageal sphincter (LES).

Here’s another old doctor’s tale (medical lie) — The LES is a sphincter muscle.

So where’s that Poor Little Man In the Dark (your tummy) supposed to be located?

Burton D. Myers, M.D. (“The Position of the Normal Stomach, With Observations on the Movement of the Diaphragm,” The Journal of the Indiana State Medical Association, Oct. 1915) wrote …

“In males, when standing, the average position of the lower border of the stomach was found to be one inch below the umbilicus, the extremes being from one inch above to three inches below this plane. In females, when standing, the lower border of the stomach was found to be three inches below the umbilical plane, the extremes being one and three-eights to four and one-half inches below the umbilical plane. When standing, the stomach is either J- or cow-horn shaped. The pyloric valve points upward, backward, and to the right. When lying down, the pyloric valve is one-third of an inch below the transpyloric plane, and in 12 1/2 per cent of cases, it points upward, backward, and to the left; the descending portion of the duodenum then lies posterior to the pyloric portion of the stomach.

“The cardiac stomach is not a storehouse for food, as commonly stated, but when standing, a gas pocket. The stomach fills from downward, the upper border of its contents remaining, during filling, at the level of the esophageal opening.

“The stomach is always as big as its contents. Its shape depends upon the quantity of its contents, the position of the body, the distention of adjacent viscera, peristalsis, and respiration. In certain cases even the beat of the heart gives a blow to the stomach wall which causes a wave to run across the surface of its contents.

“The stomach is normally in a state of tonic contraction so that when one lies down, the portion of the stomach over the vertebral column tends to empty and contract while the fundic portion accommodates an increased portion of the stomach contents.

“In the erect position, the fundic portion of the stomach looks upward, not backward as stated by His and Cunningham. The surfaces are not up and down, but anterior and posterior, or anterosuperior and postero-inferior as we stand or lie down. The greater curvature is not higher but lower than the lesser. The lesser curvature does not become convex when the stomach is filled, filling being accommodated by distention of the greater curvature. The position of the incisura angularis [angular notch], with reference to the pyloric valve, varies with the high or low position of the pyloric valve.

“The normal position of the diaphragm is higher when one is in the horizontal, than when in the erect position. Not infrequently, contraction of the abdominal wall is accompanied by descent of the diaphragm. Though some females employ costal respiration [rib breathing] almost entirely, as do some men, others show as great a swing of the diaphragm in normal respiration and as great extremes of movement of diaphragm in forced inspiration and expiration as is found in men.”

    According to the Rhode Island Hospital …

    “At high altitudes, atmospheric pressure is lower and, therefore, it is harder to breathe. Pressure in the chest decreases at the same time the pressure in the abdomen increases. The greater intra-abdominal pressure results in a tendency for liquids and foods to regurgitate or move from the stomach into the low pressure, intra-thoracic esophagus.”

    Faber Birren (Color Psychology and Color Therapy, Revised Edition, 1950, 1961) wrote …

    “Red is perhaps the most dominant and dynamic of colors. Its energy has a strong influence on the growth of plants. It has been found to accelerate the development of certain lower animals, to increase hormonal and sexual activity and to heal wounds.”

    so what is the unswelling solution?


    • November 18, 2016 @ 1:17 am Atom

      Yawning and stretching is a good beginning.

      Later you can learn what grows ans shrinks organs. For example, an eight-hour fast can triple the size of the gall bladder.

      So a sweet snack splitting sleep in half can be helpful. :-D

    Hi Atom, I know this is off subject however as I listen to repeat podcasts I continue to wish I new this answer. When you talk about eating dextronised sp? potatoes , do you eat the potato skins? I have always liked the skins with butter and salt and pepper even better than the potato itself but I wonder if the skin is really okay to eat. Thank you so much for all of your wonderful information. I love hearing your wisdom on both Patrick’s shows!

      The skins are good to eat — my favorite part of the potato too! :-D

      You might consider trading in the black pepper (if that’s what you use) for cayenne pepper.

      Black pepper (Piper nigrum) is tough on the biliary system (liver and gall bladder).

      Ever New Joy,

    Did Adano use deodorant or was the smell of roses strong. Did you notice?


    • November 23, 2016 @ 3:26 pm Atom

      Swami Nitty-Gritty smelled like roses soon after his Cosmic Vacation.


      Scientists are aware Saints are prone to mystic intoxications.

      They know this “odor of sanctity” is related to blood chemistry.

      Scientists call such phenomena “holy neurosis.” (Hmmm.)

      Adano smelled like roses in his coffin in October, 1989, in Richmond, Virginia.

      The fragrance clearly emanated from the top of his forehead (Ajna Center) as he lay in the coffin.

      It continued for several days and was accentuated by moisture.

    Hi Atom, acid reflux – what is the cause ? and the solution please ?


    • November 23, 2016 @ 3:47 pm Atom

      Acid reflux is a wastepaper basket term for a multiplicity of causes, hence requiring a diversity of solutions.

      The highest solution is to smoke out the Toxic Engram and deal with it.

      The stomach is a direct reflex — spatially and chronologically — to the uterus, so suspect a Toxic Mother Engram and its Stinking Thinking (“Our language is self-fulfilling prophecy.” — Robert Tennyson Stevens).

      Physiologically, almost all heartburn involves MECHANICAL BLOATING, so that UN-BLOATING automatically relieves “causes” across the board.

      Yawning with tonic stretching combined with Reflexology and/or chiropractic alignment addresses all “causes.”

      Even better, substitute AUTOPRACTIC for chiropractic, and DIY (Do It Yourself). :-D

    you once wrote brown is “closet orange”. does this mean brown is okay to wear on tuesdays? using the correct colors makes me feel more in sync sometimes, which might just be the placebo i need! (if color is illusion that should be about right) thanks! :)

    ps. any other colour substitutions that are viable are welcome. does yellow have a similar other utterance?


    • November 23, 2016 @ 4:14 pm Atom

      Brown can substitute for orange on Tuesdays to deal with attachment and conception/impregnation engrams.

      Gold can substitute for yellow on Wednesdays to deal with self-hate engrams.

      TINTING (lightening) any color involves Mom.

      SHADING (darkening) any color involves Dad.
