Ptosis

Bryan Applications, P

Drooping of the upper eyelid is called ptosis. A double ptosis may exist from birth and is due to imperfect development of the muscle that raises the eyelid. Later, ptosis is usually due to paralysis of the oculo-motor nerve. In some cases drugs may avail but often an operation is necessary. See: Eye..

Application and treatment:

Drooping of the upper eyelid; prolapse of an organ (hanging down owing to gravity), due to too much sugar, there is diabetic neuropathy. Cranial nerve damage is not uncommon, involving control of facial expressions and of extra-ocular movements. Extra-ocular muscle paralysis, from trouble in brain circulation, most often affecting the 3rd, 4th and 6th nerves, may lead to eyelid drooping called strabismus and the seeing of single objects as two called diplopia, most frequently in older persons with diabetes of long duration.

The ptosis is frequently present, with severe “behind- the-eyeball” pain or retro bulbar pair extending upward and involving much of the affected side. A tuning fork at the knee cap shows a loss of vibration sense. Apply energy while using positive polarity and 10,000 Hz at the lowest possible output level to begin with for 10 minutes with negative on solar plexus twice daily.

Apply pressure to top of sternum which lifts fallen organs like stomach, kidneys, uterus, ptosis, throat and brain.

The side of the sternum treats the side of the throat, etc. with the energy applied. It is like a teacup; pull on the right or left side and you apply energy to the right or left side. It also opens the top valve of the stomach. If there is a hernia in the area the energy will lift the weight of the abdominal wall and let the hernia heal.
