New Human Organ?

“Interstitium”

Study says its discovered the body’s biggest organ AND it may hold the key to understanding how cancer spreads.

But is it really as “new” as reported? Some say no…they’ve known about it for DECADES.

“This finding has potential to drive dramatic advances in medicine, including the possibility that the direct sampling of interstitial fluid may become a powerful diagnostic tool.”

Why It Matters:

“New” organ = mesh-like fluid-filled spaces that provide both cushion and connective tissue to entire body.

“Importantly, the finding that this layer is a highway of moving fluid may explain why cancer that invades it becomes much more likely to spread.” Study Authors

NOT “News” To Some…

  • Myofascial Release: Developed more than 4 decades ago.
  • Form of body work that targets connective tissue to loosen or “release” the fascia for health benefits.
  • Instead of “interstitium”, therapists call the entire network “fascia”.

“It is refreshing to see science is finally catching up to what I’ve been teaching in my Myofascial Release seminars for the last 40 years. The fascial system is one of the most important structures of our body and is significantly tightened from physical or emotional trauma which produces crushing pressure on pain sensitive structures.”

Barnes to SmartHer News:“It is refreshing to see science is finally catching up to what I’ve been teaching in my Myofascial Release seminars for the last 40 years.  The fascial system is one of the most important structures of our body and is significantly tightened from physical or emotional trauma which produces crushing pressure on pain sensitive structures.  It produces symptoms of pain, headaches, fibromyalgia and a myriad of women’s pain and health problems.The fascinating fascia is a liquid crystal three dimensional web.  In the space of the web, which is actually not space, but a fluid/viscous substance called the ground substance of the fascia which tends to solidify due to trauma and is the main transport medium of our body.  This means that whatever nutrition we ingest, the fluid we drink, the air we breathe, all the biochemistry hormones and information/energy that every one of the trillion of cells needs to thrive must go through the fluidity of the fascia.”“I would highly recommend purchasing Dr. Jean-Claude Guimberteau’s book, Architecture of Human Living Fascia. He is a French hand surgeon and he represents over 20 years of research on the fascial system. If you go to page 163, I have provided a more detailed explanation of the fascial system and Myofascial Release.”-John F. Barnes
