Body Dowsing the Knees & Kid-Knees

Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) referred to the inability to make a decision having “kid knees.”

He related being “weak in the knees” to the kidney’s association with fear, irresolution, and vacillation.


Knee-jerks correlate with excitement and agitation … and the kidneys.

Margaret A. Kennard, M.D. (“Autonomic Interrelationships with the Somatic Nervous System,” Psychosomatic Medicine, Jan.-Feb. 1947) wrote …

“… it is a clinical fact that the excited or agitated patient usually has more active knee jerks. Jacobson has demonstrated this in numerous ways in normal subjects. He has found that the knee jerks of a given individual are less active on first awakening in the morning than after the subject has been up and about. Moreover, knee jerks are increased when the individual is confronted with a difficult problem.”


Alfred Stengel, M.D., & D.L. Edsall, M.D. (“General Medicine,” The American Year-book of Medicine and Surgery, Vol. 10, 1905) wrote …

“A. Lion discusses the condition of the tendon-reflexes in nephritis. He has himself studied 16 cases of chronic parenchymatous nephritis and 8 of contracted kidney. He has also gone over the records of 262 cases of nephritis observed in von Leube’s clinic. Of the latter cases, in 5 only was it definitely stated that the knee-jerks were weak. In 3 of these there was edema, which would have tended to make the knee-jerks somewhat weak. In 3 cases of uremia it was noted that the reflexes were greatly excited. In his own cases Lion found, in 14 of parenchymatous nephritis out of 16, that there was excitation of the reflexes. In 3 of the 8 cases of contracted kidney the knee-jerks were not excited. He believes that the more closely a patient approaches uremia, the more actively will the knee-jerks be excited; and he thinks that in most cases of nephritis the knee-jerks are distinctly excited. That this occurs when there are no distinct evidences of uremia indicates, he believes, that practically all the symptoms in nephritis are due to a certain degree of uremia. When the knee-jerks are not excited in parenchymatous nephritis, Lion thinks that this is chiefly due to the presence of edema. In cases with evidences of renal disease he believes that excitation of the tendon-reflexes indicates disease of some gravity. With increasing excitation, there is, he thinks, an increase in the gravity of the patient’s condition. If the knee-jerks decrease in activity, he considers it a favorable prognostic sign.

“W. M. Stevens has made a study of the tendon-reflexes in uremia, and has satisfied himself that they are commonly excited, though not constantly so. Ankle-clonus, knee-clonus, and exaggerated wrist-jerk and elbow-jerk may also be present. He thinks that this point should be of value in diagnosing uremic coma from coma due to apoplexy and similar central nervous lesions, and also in the diagnosis of uremic convulsions from epilepsy; likewise in directing attention to the danger of uremia, when other premonitory symptoms are absent, and in suggesting the possibility of nephritis when the disease would not otherwise be suspected.”

    The Kidney acupuncture channel travels from the middle toe to the knob on the collar bone – in polarity on both sides of the body.

    Kidney 10, “Yin’s Valley,” is where this acupuncture channel directly affects the knee.

    It is acu-accessed for urogenital problems, impotence, erectile dysfunction, and arthritis of the knee.

    The inability to CHOOSE (decide) can leave you impotent and with a frozen (carbonated) knee as well.–my-girlfriend-had-knee-problem.php

    No matter what size (or how old) the gong, it always sounds like a gong.

    No matter what size (or how old) the cymbal, it always sounds like a cymbal.

    Energy follows form.

    Philosophically, it’s called the Law of Signatures.

    Swami Nitty-Gritty called it Geometric Body Resonance.

    It’s also known as Anatomical Alliteration.

    Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) said …

    “A reflex reflects, is a reflection, an image, a repetition.”

    “Animals do reflex therapy. They pull to release pain and rid themselves of lactic acid, hormones, and acetate.”

    “The skullcap is a reflex to the kneecap.”

    “The mouth is a reflex to the medulla oblongata.”

    “The navel is like a balloon. The exit and entrance point of the navel is the same. There’s no reflex for the navel. Moxibustion is used for the navel.”

    “The spinal column is a reflex center, a nervo-servio response center. The first center of all reflexes begins in the spine.”

    The spine is a mirror for life processes. A fiber-optic lamp is an exact replica of the spinal cord.”

    “The Reflexociser is modeled after the ribcage. The horseshoe provides the bounce.”–e-books.php

    Carotenoids are energy reducing agents (light harvesting complexes that quench and reabsorb photons) that block photooxidation (cellular destruction by light).

    Carotenoids protect mostly against light wavelengths of 400nm–500nm.

    re: estrogen and bloating.

    since following the peat style eating and cutting out all estrogenic foods i could barely fit into my jeans. now, after just a couple of days of carrots aplenty, some tomato and dates (supposedly phyto-estrogenic, plus beta carotene being estrogenic) i fit into them nicely. i know progesterone retains water while estrogen is diuretic. is balance always better than the semi-medical approach of peat? i also feel my cholinergic action (rhythm, verbality, motorics) are more on point keeping my estrogen niftily up. i actually felt very sleepy and fungally overgrown (white tongue) when on cane sugar, gelatin and plenty of milk products.

    in no way do i mean to knock peat though, for a meat eater i believe his approach might be semi-essential, especially if one is the kind to cook with oil. plus his having brought the danger of pufas to larger attention has done me good as well. i only feel his approach might be a bit streamlined and in the end, based on studies more than a holistic picture.

      Re: Is balance always better than the semi-medical approach of Peat?

      No disrespect to Peat either because I’m also an admirer of his work, but balance does seem to be the way to fitness and longevity

      So-called longevity researchers seem to walk big circles around researching really, really, really old people.

      Because of their fixation with lab work on yeast, mice, and genes, it’s hard to find anything on what centenarians are actually doing to fend off the Reaper.

      Diets and lifestyles of the centenarians below (to name a few) vary widely …

      Huguette Clark (1906-2011)

      “Professor” Irwin Corey (1914-2017)

      Olivia de Havilland (1916-still alive)

      Kirk Douglas (1916-still alive)

      Albert Hofmann (1906-2008)

      Fred Kummerow (1914-still alive)

      Norman Lloyd (1914-still alive)

      Hal Roach (1892-1992)

      David Rockefeller (1915-still alive)

      Fauja Singh (1911-still alive)

      Longevity geeks seem to go out of their way to AVOID centenarians like these (although they sometimes take a cursory look at a supercentenarian or two).

      Why aren’t researchers begging these folks for their diets, schedules, attitudes, etc.?

    unrelatedly: i like the fact that adano associated platinum with the kidneys. as a superconductor with a penchant for the emotional body and a veeeery haughty and dictatorial homeopathic picture (have you read homeopathy on platina? :) it’s like reading a thriller!) it fits nicely with it overstimulating the energy center of the body (at a certain point).

    also, it’s a yellow element (like gold, palladium and it’s entire family of elements) and seems to fit the pedantics you associate with the colour (platinum according to one homeopathic page has a penchant for anal sex!). some of the effects of ormus as i see it should be from the mental sharpness and positive traits of “spiritual pedantry”. i really enjoyed your blogs on yellow and it’s resonant characteristics as they confirmed a lot of the noble metals themes in homeopathy.

    your blog synchronistically fell on my plate one day as i researched the effects of periodic elements on the human organism and mind via the book “metals in homeopathy” by patricia le roux. weren’t it for you i would probably not have half the information nor the holes in my wallet from spending money on gold, palladium and platinum jewellery! jokes aside. aside from being productive, singing, dancing, writing and working, how would you recommend one expends the energy of existential angst (associated with the metallic kingdom) in a life-affirming way? i feel you are one of the few spiritual teachers (yes i do consider you one) not proposing too much time spent in the space of passive introspection.

      Re: How would you recommend one expends the energy of existential angst (associated with the metallic kingdom) in a life-affirming way?

      Follow your heart, Sebastian!

      Since you seem to be drawn to the alchemy of the Periodic Table of the Elements, three books come to mind to assist in its understanding …

      1) Atom Bergstrom, Butterflies Need No Taxidermist …

      Not because of MY knowledge, but because I was savvy enough to write down the exact quotes of Swami Nitty-Gritty, who had a consummate understanding of the Periodic Table.

      2) Emanuel Revici, Research In Physiopathology As Basis Of Guided Chemotherapy—With Special Application To Cancer …

      Because nowhere else can you find such an organized and holistic explanation of the Periodic Table.

      (Props to That Crazy Pharmacist for posting the entire textbook on the internet.)

      3) Dinshah P. Ghadiali, Spectro-Chrome Metry Encyclopedia …

      Because of Dinshah’s comprehensive understanding of atomic elements and their Fraunhofer lines.

      (His son’s book is in my library too — Darius Dinshah, Let There Be Light.)

          Here’s another tip, Sebastian …

          “What does magnesium do in the body?” I asked Nitty-Gritty.

          “What does it do outside the body?” he answered my question with a question. “Find out what it does outside the body, and you’ll know what it does inside the body.”

          That statement kick-started me thumbing through every encyclopedia I could get my hands on, starting at actinium and ending at zirconium.

          I also studied dozens of books on the subject, including those by Isaac Asimov (dated now) …

          The Search for the Elements, 1962

          The World of Carbon, 1962

          The World of Nitrogen, 1958

          Now — thanks to the internet — THE SKY’S THE LIMIT !!!!!

            a lot of homeopathic papers on the elements start with the history and technical uses of the element in question, usually painting quite a holistic picture. i will keep this in mind!

            magnesium in it’s pure form is pretty reactive (enzyme booster in the body!) while the personality seems to be a pacifist (while it supposedly reduces defensive aggressive behaviour [antagonism to the constrictive effect of calcium?] it increases offensive aggressive behaviour though). it’s effect as a laxative and relaxant is probably a lot of cacao’s health boost i believe! haha.

            thanks again!

    Re: magnesium in it’s pure form is pretty reactive

    As without, so within. Magnesium in flashbulbs tells a lot about its use in the body. :)
