I share a lot of dramatic stories here, but most of the time foot zoning is like it was on this day. Here is an expert from my journal:
My son stayed home from school today because he didn’t feel well. He had swollen red eyes and felt a little achy. We put some ionized silver in his red eyes and he asked me to foot zone him. As I foot zoned my 13-year-old boy, his prostate area was a little crunchy. He felt the difference and asked where I was in the foot zone. I informed him that I was working on his “boy parts”. He laughed and asked what that meant. I explained that he was just changing from boy to man and his body was adjusting. We talked about that for a bit and I continued to foot zone him.
Later, the thyroid signal was tender. He again was curious about the tender spot I was working on. I explained that it was his thyroid. Of course, he didn’t know what that was, so I explained to him that it was an organ that helps regulate his hormones changes. I also let him know that it could also deal with things he wanted to speak up about but was afraid to. His brain started turning with that information, and he wanted to talk more about that.
“What does that mean mom?” he asked. Since he was my best clue to what is going on in his body, I responded back with, “What do you think it means? What’s going through your mind right now after I worked on that signal?”
He explained that it’s hard for him to pick a sports team to like. If he picked one and expressed it then people might get angry at him if they didn’t like that sports team. Apparently, sports teams are a real worry for a 13-year-old boy. Hours later he felt better and the red and swelling in his eyes had gone down.
After school, his little brother came home walking in pain. He also asked me to foot zone him. After telling him to wash his black and dirty island feet, he sat on the couch with his homework in his lap and I went to work on his feet. We talked about his homework, and then we talked about eating less sugar and more healthy fats, and other things I felt he needed. He decided to eat some nuts after we were done. His feet were a little sore as I worked on a couple of signals and I realized his physical foot needed some work and not just the signal system. I put some essentials oils on his foot to help with the swelling in his foot then he went on his way.
This is why I learned how to foot zone, to nurture and care for my children. Nothing fantastic or amazing, just regular stuff. I know that all the regular stuff, in the long run, helps me to be a better mother.
