- View SourceWhen one side of the rib cage is higher than the other side, it's
called "rib torque." With rib torque the organs in the abdomen and/or
chest may not have enough room to function properly. Imagine, if you
will a box full of items being crushed or misshapen. When you open
the box you'll probably find things broken and displaced. When you
have rib torque often your organs in the chest and abdomen displaced
like the items in the box. Often symptoms of illness or disease can
be simply rib torque.
Some symptoms that may relate to rib torque include:
Lungs - unable to expand properly, causing shortness of breath,
inadequate oxygenation, and because of their weakened state, increase
in cold and flu symptoms.
Heart arrhythmias, weakened heartbeat, heart murmur.
Kidneys kidney pain, UTIs, ureters kinked or torqued
Digestive tract hiatal hernia (part of the stomach above the
diaphragm), nausea, vomiting, stomach motility issues, pseudo-Crohn's
disease, pseudocolitis, digestive headache (in the forehead)
Liver headaches, hyper/hypoglycemia as the liver is not sending
proper communications to pancreas and adrenal glands for blood sugar
control, muscle aches due to toxins liver is unable to process being
dumped in tissues, difficulty processing proteins, etc.
