Poliomyelitis is an inflammation in the spinal marrow, which is the part of the central nervous system inside the rachidian canal, running from the occipital hole (in the cranium) down to the second lumbar vertebra (L2), where several pairs of nerves start.

Symptoms in this area denote difficulty to take action and to get close to other people.

Paralysing diseases always affect the locomotor system, namely the muscles and/or the nerves. They are linked to a huge feeling of undervaluation. This is the first keyword. The second keyword concerns the feeling of opposite ideas.

The person imposes on himself two contradictory orders regarding movement. The person has wishes that contradict each another. These two contradictory ideas that provoke tension may occur if, for example, the person wished to do something very much, did it and then regretted having done it. Remorse is an undervaluation feeling that affects muscles.

If this happens to a newly born, we have a child who has incarnated but who doubts whether he should have done it, because he feels neither balance nor harmony in his life to be able to grow freely. In situations like this, it is paramount to examine what went on between the parents during pregnancy, at the time of birth or during the early childhood of the individual in question (see Acute anterior poliomyelitis – child paralysis).

Paralysing diseases are characteristic of the locomotor system and of the nervous system, as we have just seen.

The feeling of individuality and of self-esteem is the issue here. This is about what I think of myself and what am I doing in this world. This is about my assertiveness and my flexibility and where conflicts related to my personal worth are kept. What part of my conscience is in the dark in my relationship with the world?

In a condition such as paralysis, the person’s thoughts tie him down. He stopped being able to move, whether partially or totally. In case of partial paralysis, it is important to check which part of the locomotor system is affected.

See Partial paralysis and check the parts of the body that have been affected.
