I healed my Inguinal Hernia
Truss or no Truss
enemy is us
received various complains telling me that my hernia page is too
long and that I should better make it more dense by taking out all what
is not necessary. Yes, my story is long, it was written like this as a
diary during my healing process and tells about all the difficulties and
obstacles I had to go through and overcoming these made a growing process
out of my healing. I believe that this is important and maybe more important
than practical advises. This might not be of interest for people who are
just looking for a quick cure for their inguinal hernia. Although this
is common and understandable, I don't want to support this attitude. I
believe strongly that all diseases are part of the growing of ones individual
existence and if we see it like this then it can open a positive and creative
process. So I will leave this page like it is.
Be aware that I spend
more than half a year with an intensive search, being totally alone in
it. All the information I could find to heal an hernia, were about surgery.
Instead of using that much energy and time, now it needs just about one
hour to read (without the links) and you will need to do the rest: Using
the given information and 'Healing yourself' and you can start with the
certain information that a healing without surgery is possible! I wish
you from all my heart, that I will inspire you enough so that you
can go for it!
It was said that 5% of
all men get an hernia in their life and that would mean, if half of these
are repaired by surgery, an income of about a Trillion $ for the medical
system only from the hernia surgery! 80.000 surgeries a year only in UK!
So obviously this is part of a lucrative business, which is based on a
materialistic world view and because of this one can understand, why it
is so hard to find any alternative solution. That means that all those
people who can't effort surgery, are just suffering, left without any help.
Probably nobody is even asking for an alternative solution, being impressed
by the established medical authorities! Indeed there seems to be no choice.
I searched for several months and could not find any information to heal
my hernia and even from alternative health groups like Reiki there came
only the suggestion back that surgery should be done.
When I was fully recovered
feeling strong again and full of energy, so then I worked like I did before
and moved also heavy things. But for more than two years not having had
any exercises had weakened my body and so it happened when I lifted something
very heavy, that too much tension in my belly opened the tissue and the
muscles, so that my intestines came out through this hole. That's called
Hernia' and was quite painful and the medical doctor I consulted, told
me that this must be repaired with surgery as soon as possible.
Although it is common
in our days for the established medical health system to use surgery on
all parts of the body to repair what doesn't function or is defect, I believe
that 'repairing' has not necessarily to do with healing and often might
inhibit the natural healing process. The common expectation of people in
our society, is to get rid of any disease as fast as possible and taking
pills to take away the disturbing symptoms or to let cut off the bad body
part, became a normal practice. So to close a hole in the belly with some
plastic mash seems to be the logical consequence. But I don't agree
with these manipulative procedures. I am convinced, that all happenings
and also each disease or 'accident' has a cause which lays behind of what
we are aware of. Healing should include one's whole being and during the
healing process all levels should be included. Of course there are conditions,
like injuries in an accident, where surgery is necessary as a first step
of the healing. I had the feeling that with hernia there is an underlying
reason which is not solved by surgery.
So I searched the
Internet for an alternative solution, even though I was told by the MD
that the not repaired hernia is dangerous and I could die within 5 hours
if the intestines are strangulated. I searched and searched, but nothing
showed up! I read many pages and the only advice all over the place: Surgery!
Even when I searched for 'alternative treatments' then only Surgery
came up. Thousands of pages... (1.550.000 pages on hernia!) I searched
again and again, with keywords like: "Healing Inguinal hernia without surgery",
there were showing up 155.000 pages, - but all about Surgery!
Meanwhile I found
out, that one must look for information older than eighty years. I have
given some links further on... Reading the information
from those old books, I can understand now why modern medicine is not interested
in those 'self-healing-methods'. To heal an hernia without surgery, it
needs a lot of engagement and self responsibility, apart of that it takes
much longer and is not just a quick 'repair' but is a 'healing process'
which goes far deeper and includes the whole being with all levels - and
this is not wanted in our speedy society.
Sometimes I felt totally
impotent in front of all those hundred thousands of impressive information
from medical experts. How can I be right in my feelings only based on my
intuition, as I have very little knowledge about diseases and healing?
But then looking at the behavior of the great majority of humanity, whose
life are nearly all based on a materialistic world view, with no doubt
that they might be wrong in their thinking and the resulting way of lifestyle,
then I must conclude that indeed all those medical experts might be wrong...
As more I read all
those medical statements as more my resistance was growing and of course
also because of my disappointing experiences with the medical system I
had to go through when I had Fibromyalgia; when I was told that my disease
only exist in my head and wanting to prescribe anti depressives to me.
One medical doctor kicked me out of his office when I insisted that I had
no depressions, - of course not forgetting to charge me for his 'service'!
So it is easy to understand that my position was critical about the health
system and medical doctors, finding the strength to search in spite the
overwhelming opinions of all who say: "Only surgery is possible to heal
an Inguinal hernia!"
So I went on investigating
and I just treated my Hernia with what I thought might help: Meditation,
foot reflex massage, infra red massager, Crocodile exercise (I had learned
45 years ago from Swami
Dev Murti), some yoga and other stretching exercises, a strict
alimentation, supplements like Aloe Vera, Propolis, Ginseng, Olive leaf
tea, Granada peel tea, MSM, minerals, etc., and I was continuing to do
my ozone sauna,
I did when I was healing my Fibromyalgia, but now doing the sauna only
once a week.
Healing my Hernia
was a very slow process and very tiring as it needed a lot of my energy
and probably also because I felt pretty alone with it. But I continued
with the decision that even this would be the last thing in my life, I
would go on with it!
One thing became absolutely
clear to me: It is NOT the question of treating symptoms even not
with holistic means like meditation or Reiki. I have written about it many
times and I will repeat it many times: Whatever dysfunction shows up, what
is called 'disease', this is not the cause, it is a symptom for an underlying,
mostly hidden cause and this probably will come from another level. Maybe
it is from an emotionally or mental imbalance, or even beyond this, what
we might call 'spiritual', (even though I try to avoid to go into 'mystical'
spaces...) meaning that our connection with our origin or authentic being
is disturbed or not yet done... (This will need far more investigation...)
was written several years ago and of course meanwhile I have investigated
much more and so had some insights that go much further than what I have
written here and so might be much more important for ones healing process.

Then I started with
some exercises, I only could do fife movements of it then I was exhausted,
but later on I could do twenty and I added every few days fife more. I
wouldn't give any advice on how often and how much one should do exercises.
This depends very much on ones personal condition. So one needs to listen
to ones body and observe the reactions coming back from there and then
adjusting ones doing. So please don't ask me for details about it, that
is the part one needs to find out oneself and then do what feels right.
It happened the first
time that my Hernia didn't pop out when I got up in the morning and it
didn't hurt anymore, I could walk without disturbance. So it seemed that
it works! But apart of the body exercises I did more: Twice a day EFT
and twice a day Reiki
on myself and 45 minutes my girl friend treated me daily with Reiki.
With the exercises
one must watch out not to do too much: Once when I did the 'upside down'
Yoga position, then I didn't noticed that the hernia was outside and after
a few minutes I had strong pain and couldn't continue, then I had pain
for several days...
I found out that by
doing too much exercises my hernia is getting worse and by doing too little
it doesn't get better. So what is too much and too little depends on my
situation, my energy and my emotionally state of being... What means that
one has to be very aware and listen to one's body and all other parts of
one's system. It is probably a good attitude and condition to find a holistic
way to deal with oneself, as a being in ones specific condition
and position connecting and being aware with one's source...
I couldn't believe
it that there is no information available about an alternative way to treat
hernia and so again I searched intensively the Internet, I went through
hundreds of pages and couldn't find anything, only about surgery. I did
it in English, German and Spanish, - all the same. Then I found one scientific
for the Treatment of Indirect Hernia (M. Kux) with
an article in such a professional language that I hardly could understand
one word. But a few sentences (red)
gave me a hint:
Inguinal ring is formed by the separation of two portions of transversalis
fascia: Laterally, transversalis fascia is attached to the posterior edge
of the Inguinal ligament. Medial to the inferior epigastric vessels, transversalis
fascia inserts into the Cooper ligament, at some distance from the Inguinal
ligament, and extends over the pubis into the cavity of the pelvis. The
course of an indirect hernia corresponds to a tangentially acting aetiology.
Intraperitoneal pressure acts at a right angle upon the oblique course
of the processus vaginalis, causing compression and obliteration of the
processus. Radially acting intraperitoneal pressure would have to be deviated
at a right angle to cause de novo formation of an indirect hernia.
The word and the historical notion of traumatic 'rupture' are misleading
conceptions for groin hernia aetiology. In childhood, indirect hernia is
a process of foetal development; at
old age, a process of involution of the extraperitoneal fatty-fascial compartment.
This involution is characterized by the formation of lipomas and, histologically,
by fatty degeneration of connective tissue components. The extraperitoneal
fatty-fascial compartment is contained by external oblique aponeurosis,
not by transversalis fascia. This
is the reason why a small prosthesis sublayed to external oblique aponeurosis
is more effective than a much larger prosthesis sublayed to transversalis
fascia. This concept is helpful in the strategy of using as little prosthetic
material as possible".
The author's conclusion
goes in direction of surgery but my conclusion was and is: If the hernia
is caused by "fatty degeneration of connective tissue components" then
this condition is not changed by surgery putting a plastic mash on top
of the hole and so no wonder if after surgery another hernia appears.
A comment from a cyber
friend: "I find it interesting that once
again there is connective fatty tissue involved. I had not really
ever known what caused such things, but it seems that weakening of the
tissue is the base problem? Most research I have seen regarding
major diseases seems to relate to certain tissue type, the fatty tissues
are in the nervous, and brain, spine and other places. These are the places
the contamination of heavy metal accumulates and allows virus/pathogens
to prosper and be protected from the white cells that would normally do
the cleaning job. I read this again and again. It seems what stopping the
tissue degeneration one way or the other, would be the first thing to do.
As you have pointed out, the medical establishment treats disease
viruses like a protected species. I have heard of drug that will not work
until after the heavy metal is removed. It seems the reason the drugs work
in a lab, is because the lab samples do not have heavy metal..."
If there is a degeneration
of tissue, then this might be caused through circumstances like wrong alimentation,
overweight, lack of exercises, accumulation of toxins and probably many
more until now unknown factors. (I found a good Web site about 'Hernia
causes' which is not directly about hernia, it is more general, but
worthwhile to be read.) If there has happened a change in the tissue and
muscles, causing the hernia, then it must be possible to reverse the process
and create favorable conditions for a healing. At least this is my logical
thought as a naive nonprofessional 'investigator'. The MDs say that once
the tissues and muscles are damaged then it will not heal and only surgery
can repair it and with this justifying their manipulation, which only eliminates
the symptom but not touching the cause. Maybe they are right, maybe not.
At this moment I don't trust the MDs because even I believe they are caring
for their patients, - as good as they can, - their own interest might be
stronger, ruled by their (unconscious) personal background and limited
knowledge... (Without even they know about this!)
Two brothers told
me that they both had surgery twice for their inguinal hernia and they
still have a lot of problems. Now the doctor wants to do the surgery the
third time and he said that now he has to charge the double because they
are over 50 years old, but he would serve them with great pleasure! - -
- Incredible isn't it?
So the question is:
What can I do to strengthen the damaged condition of my tissue and muscles?
Now I realize that I did already something in this direction apart of my
exercises: When I was sick with Fibromyalgia I had not enough exercises
and had gotten some overweight, not much but a few kilos and mainly around
the belly. So that was the first thing I did after the hernia appeared:
I did a fasting and lost some of this fat. Probably it is a good idea to
do a water
fasting, a liver
cleansing and a colon
When I searched the
Internet and was confronted with hundred thousands of "expert- opinions"
from medical capacities then I felt sometimes like an ante who wants to
climb the Himalayas.
So then sometimes
I came to the point near to desperation as everything was becoming too
much. So I had ask for help... I received the clear and simple answer from
inside: 'Help is on the way!' Well, so I trusted this and
was more calm.
Then I received an
email from Dr.Bernarr, D.C., (email: DRBERNARR@aol.com)
I had asked him for help with my hernia. The information he gave, even
though I'm critical and don't agree with all what he wrote, it confirmed
very much what I had found out already and so it gave me a certain security
to be able to continue with my treatments and my positive attitude. http://www.healself.org
'The rock is just too
heavy that it moves by itself and keeps moving...' With other words:
to become aware of the load one is carrying since many years and which
might have caused one's disease.
American healer I found an interesting Web site from a healer who is also
a medical doctor, what he writes goes very much with what my intention
is, (and also it confirms what Dr. Bernarr told me in his email) worth
to be read, go to:
"Since medical school graduation, I have been working to
integrate the thoughts and techniques of traditional Native American healing
elders with more common behavioral medicine techniques and psychotherapies.
I have wanted to find the most effective and most aesthetic way for me
to midwife people's personal transformations and healings. To improve my
approach, I interviewed a number of Native American healers to learn how
they conceptualized their work and how they thought it could be translated
into modern American culture."
That he writes about 'personal transformation' tells me that he came to
a similar conclusion like me, - even being a 'medical doctor'! For my personal
healing process now with hernia, I picked from his Web site:
traditional healers told me that time is the first important ingredient
in the healing journey, comparing starting this journey to beginning to
push a rock up a hill. It takes a lot more effort to get the rock moving
at first than to keep it moving. They wondered how seeing someone once
or twice weekly could provide enough "oomph" to start the healing process.
"How can you push a rock up a hill if you keep stopping and letting it
roll back down?" they asked.
In organic and
biochemistry, an energy of activation is required to initiate a reaction.
Once initiated that reaction may proceed irreversibly to completion without
much further energetic input. Without sufficient energy of activation,
the reaction never occurs. A cake without sufficient energy of heat remains
mush. A minimal level of heat is needed to actually cook the cake (transforming
the internal arrangements of its molecules). The healers loved these comparisons
to chemistry, and reflected upon how nature is the same at every level.
In systems science, we say that each layer is isomorphic to the other."
So this confirms what I thought before: doing a water fasting in which
I don't do anything else, just laying in bed with closed eyes, etc. He
writes also: Quote:"The
days before modern pharmaceuticals, rest was a key ingredient of any therapy.
Healing may best begin by putting the client to bed. This disturbs daily
routines and breaks old habits. It allows the body's repair mechanisms
to take over from the defense mechanisms; the parasympathetic nervous system
to calm down the sympathetic nervous system."
was doing every day my exercises, EFT, Reiki, meditation, etc. but I was
also working. This was probably the reason why my hernia was not getting
In consequence I did
as the most important a ten
days water fasting:
I am at the 5th day
of my water fasting. I'm doing my exercises three times a day and today
I felt that it was more difficult. Today I will do an enema to clean up
my intestines but I will wait with a liver cleans until after the fasting,
it might be too much stress and disturbing the healing process of my hernia.
I felt good the last few days and I had enough energy to work several hours
on some translations, what I wanted to do since several months.
I finished twelve
days water fasting... and I must say that this was a pretty tough time.
I wouldn't suggest to do it in winter time, it's easier in summer. At the
end I was quite weak and when I wanted to eat again then there was nothing
prepared and I had not enough energy so I was eating for a week just what
was there and this wasn't the right way to get back my strength, instead
I messed up my digestive system... Now another week has passed and slowly
I am gaining back some energy. I had lost about eight kilos. My hernia
is not yet healed although it is getting better. I am doing my exercises
three times a day. Six series: When I started these then I could only do
five then later twenty movements in each series. Now I am doing about fifty...
But this is absolutely
an advice or a suggestion for somebody else. I'm sure that it depends very
much on ones personal condition and situation what one can do, how often,
how much, etc. One needs to listen to ones body and find out what is the
best that suites.
I felt that I was
doing too much and so I reduced the number of movements, this feels good
even when I do it three times a day. In an old book about natural healing
from Dr. med. Alfred Brauchle, he wrote that after or before these exercises
one should do five minutes of massage of the abdomen around the hernia,
- massaging in circles. This I am doing since a few days and indeed my
hernia is getting better. Also Dr. Brauchle suggest to wear a good fitting
truss and to put it on in the morning when still laying in bed and also
taking it off laying down. So that the hernia doesn't pop out. He writes
that the hernia should be treated like a broken bone, it should be kept
as calm as possible. That's not always so easy, for example when going
to the toilet or taking a shower. I do it in the way that I hold one hand
on the hernia so that it doesn't come out, this doesn't work always but
most of the time.
I have a cold. Why
my hernia is getting worse? I have emotional stress. Why my hernia is getting
worse? I have days with a lack of energy. Why my hernia then is worse?
It seems to be pretty obvious that all is connected and so the 'healing'
must include the whole system, - and of course the 'healing' can and should
start also with little things like a cold. Not cutting the symptoms with
some pills or in the case of hernia closing the damaged tissue with some
plastic mash... So the healing must start or go down to the roots, but
where are the root causes of an hernia? I never read anywhere a question
about it, so probably I need to go into this direction and investigate
more... (Isn't anybody out there who can give me a hint?) Remark
six years later: Never there has been a comment or an advice to this...)
searching the Internet I read about the author Patricia
Ann Hellinger. Her story had an uplifting effect to my mood, as I see
that I'm not the only person who wants to go into another direction. She
has written an interesting book how she healed herself from Fibromyalgia
and other severe diseases, but it is already worth while to read her story
and her view about healing...
found an amazing book "Practice of natural
therapeutics" Henry Lindlahr M.D. TREATMENT OF CHRONIC DISEASES
and I have made a copy.
There are a number
of books, mostly out of print and several now in 'Public Domain'.
Go to: http://www.soilandhealth.org/
I found a book published
in Germany at 1933: "Handbuch der Naturheilkunde" written by Dr. med. Alfred
Brauchle. I don't know if there exist an edition in English. I will search
for it, because he is describing natural treatments among others also for
& Energy: During the last weeks
I came several times near to desperation and I guess this happens to anyone
who is searching for an alternative way to heal one's hernia and then not
finding anything else than surgery. So when it happened that I got this
feeling of being helpless and hopeless, then I did EFT for a few minutes.
(I have written more about it at: click)
(At the Web site: EFT=
Emotional Freedom Technique one can download the EFT manual
for free.) Doing the EFT, one is tapping certain meridian points and saying
or thinking an affirmation phrase, like:
"I am full of energy and in a good mood!"
This needs only two
minutes - and it helps! So with this I could go forward and had enough
energy to do first my morning exercises and then, - I get more energy out
of it and I can go on to 'confront the day'...
six years later: I am now critical about the EFT, as this also is a manipulation
and I think, this should be only used in an emergency situation.
The last days my mood
was lifted up, because finally I found some alternative information and
I could see, that indeed, a natural healing of an Inguinal hernia is possible.
Again recognizing how important it is to keep one's energy and mood high.
Then also one's view is more open and new information can be received...
(I'm aware of the fact that EFT is a manipulation on ones emotions. In
general I'm against any kind of manipulation if it is not connected with
searching and treating the cause, but in a case of emergency it might be
necessary to help to create a favorable condition so that one can stay
open to continue...)
Again my hernia got
worse - and my mood went down. But then reflecting about it I could realize
that even my hernia was worse it was still better than when it was bad
the last time and when I had recovered, then my hernia was better than
ever before. Seeing this more clearly, there was no need for my mood to
go down, knowing that - even though there are ups and downs - on the long
run it is getting better. But of course, it is an issue in the healing
process, that I am not sure about anything. I have no proof that it is
possible to heal myself from hernia. I haven't met anybody and I have not
read about any case. So I am walking on a very slippery ground, but now
I don't care how often I fall down on my nose or bottom, I will go on...
A few days ago a physiotherapist
visited me. It was not about me, he is planing to give a seminar about
healing. But then I was talking about my hernia and my intention to heal
it in an alternative way, he said that this would be impossible and the
only way to repair the hernia would be surgery. To my arguments he responded
that I obviously have little knowledge about medical conditions. That's
right, I hardly know even the basic, but now after having had Fibromyalgia
and being recovered from it, I can say that I know more about Fibromyalgia
than all the medical doctors I had consulted, including several healers.
Also I can say that somehow I am glad not to have a medical education,
otherwise I would be stuck and limited to this knowledge, being an authority
but blind for any creative solution. Even though I could look through the
authoritarian attitude of this visitor, I felt half a day impressed and
By the way: The physiotherapist
told me that his field are joint treatments specially the knees. I asked
him to which one of the knees he is specialized, to the left or the right?
Because I have some problems in my right knee... ;-)
Now my mood is high
enough that it has caused a new attitude: This morning I could look at
many heavy and negative happenings in a way that I could just laugh about
it and realize that it is very much more like a joke, even though it had
I talked to a friend
yesterday, who has a big company and therefor also big problems. When we
see each other we normally talk about our health situation. He told me
now that his mood is often changing. I ask him why, but he didn't know.
So I suggested that when this happens, that he just observes himself. Then
probably he will notice that these mood ups and downs are reactions to
what he is experiencing around him. So this for sure is different than
what he wants and what is his expectation how it should be. When he can
be aware of this, accepting it as part of reality, then he can relax about
it and then also he will be more open for creative solutions to change
the unwanted situation... Then even he might be able to laugh about most
of what had caused him disappointment and stress before!
just watched a CD about doing EFT to heal a trauma. The therapist in this
video said that to cure a trauma sometimes it needs a year or more and
often it is a really difficult process, because it involves the work and
responsibility of the client. So it is a 'process' and this effects and
has healing results on all levels. Now, on the other hand, if a person
has a chronic disease like hernia and gets surgery, then in the case of
the person with the trauma it would mean to cut out the effected parts
of the brain of this person, so taking away the trauma and the symptoms.
Wouldn't this be ridiculous? So why it is less ridiculous doing surgery
on a hernia to get rid of this symptom and the same with other diseases?
I read an article about a MD who found out that doing surgery on people
with Fibromyalgia (on their tender points) eliminates all their symptoms.
Oh boy!!! This MD will soon be multi millionaire and the world filled with
many million zombies more...
A visitor of my hernia
page ask me for advice about his hernia. He was operated a year ago and
still has pain. The doctors are telling him that this is normal...
I am sorry, but I
can't give any advice, first because I'm not a health professional and
then because in this case I can't tell about my own experience as I never
had surgery and I am doing my best not to have one. People who had surgery
with their hernia and have problems, should ask their med. doctor and if
they can't give an advice then they should search for exercises they can
do, change their diet and do other things to strengthen their whole system.
Probably they can do the same exercises I'm doing to avoid surgery and
to heal my hernia, but really: I don't know about it! Maybe 'castor
oil packs' can help, ask your doctor... I can only repeat: Whatever
disease there is, with surgery the cause is not healed and another symptom
will show up: Another hernia or something else, probably on a different
level... So as a consequence: Heal your background and every thing else
will fall in its place!
hernia is much better! Since
one week I am working full time and also lifting heavy stuff but I have
no pain. But I am wearing a truss all day and I put it on in the morning
before I get up, taking it off when I lay down in the evening. With this
being sure that the hernia doesn't come out. When I go to the toilet or
do the sauna, then I protect the hernia with my hand. Another sign shows
up telling me that my hernia is better: The last few days I haven't protected
my hernia when I did the sauna and even then it didn't pop out! I see this
as a real progress.
weeks later: I'm still progressing even I'm working. I find
it more difficult to do my abdomen exercises, because about one hours daily
for this needs some energy and I'm adding every day a few movements more,
so that I am now at one hundred movements for each exercise that makes
five hundred movements and then the massage and the EFT in-between. But
I want to stick with it as the healing seems more and more possible. I
have no doubts about this anymore... By the way: I
have thrown away my old truss and I'm using a small foam rubber ball which
I have cut into half. It works perfectly and I didn't need to spend any
money on it!
With the half rubber
ball under the truss it works pretty good, but yesterday I couldn't find
the ball, - probably my cat was playing with it -, so I used a flat stone
instead. This might be better, because from an old book about hernia treatments
I remember the information, that the pressure from the truss cushion would
cause that the tissue builds up scar tissue and so closes the hole of the
hernia. So I will direct my intention to this...
I am using this flat
stone now for two months and it works pretty good, although the stone is
too heavy and sometimes falls out... I can't suggest using a stone, probably
it depends very much on one's individual condition and the state of healing.
So one should be aware of it and sensibly using one's intuition for what
might be the best... (Later: I stopped using the stone and instead
I'm putting a hard foam rubber cushion. That feels right at the moment,
but I guess every body has to find out what seems the best...)
Today I received an
email with a link to a Yoga
Web site were a MD who also is doing yoga, describes that he healed
his Inguinal hernia with yoga. He describes the same exercise I am doing
now since three months.
I found a post in
which points out the importance of a colon cleanse:
actually asked him how to cure Inguinal hernia with herbs for my dad who
suffers from this. He told me that an inguinal hernia means that the colon
is full of crap, and this impacted colon is pushing on a weak muscle which
bulges out. Dr. Christopher's student cured his Inguinal hernia within
6 weeks, but it can take 6 weeks to 6 months. Basically, one takes Dr.
Christopher's lower bowel formula (to empty the colon out, as many capsules
as can be tolerated). Also, apply Dr. Christopher's complete tissue formula
ointment on the area, and also this formula can be taken internally. But
taking these supplements is not enough, diet is key. The purpose of this
treatment is to eliminate all of the fecal matter from the colon that is
pressing on the weak muscle. So if one wants to get rid of this problem,
one should go on a mucus less diet, absolutely no ingestion of foods that
cause constipation: no dairy, meat, or preserved foods. One should eat
fruits and vegetables, and juices. And Dr. Christopher also said that if
one wants accelerate the healing process, a juice fast would be necessary,
preferably a watermelon juice fast, or a prune juice fast.
Surgery for an
Inguinal hernia merely masks the symptoms. The body is telling the patient
the colon needs to be cleaned out, it is full of too much crap. Surgery
definitely does not clean out the colon, and if this is not cleaned out,
new diseases can appear. As we all know good health starts with colon health."
Yesterday I called
an old friend in Germany telling her about my hernia, she gave me the advice
to go to the Web site of Dr. xyz, who investigated about 'micro cells'
and he has developed a series of 'formulas' which helps and stimulates
the growing and recovering of tissue. That's exactly what I need at this
moment for my hernia. I feel pretty good and I can work nearly whole day
and pretty hard. I have seldom pain, but the hernia is not healing, what
means the rupture is not closing, although I am doing EFT especially for
the cells of the tissue and muscles that they can recover, so obviously
they need another stimuli. OK, so I went to this doctors Web site and spend
all night on reading it. Indeed very convincing and I wrote an email to
Dr. xyz asking about a 'formula' for my hernia. I am pretty critical about
offered 'formulas' because I have made a lot of negative experiences in
the Internet with those magic bullets. I wish nothing more than to find
something to help to heal myself. This could really have a great impact
to all people suffering from hernia. The 'formula' alone will probably
not do it, but with the exercises, the right diet, massage, EFT, meditation,
etc. then the stimulation of the cells might do the decisive healing impulse.
tried for several months the 'formulas' of several sellers and came to
the conclusion that these seem to be part of the big health business. For
sure it is good to take some supplements like vitamins and minerals, but
all the other stuff... I have serious doubts, but there should be done
some intense investigation... I came to the conclusion that those 'formula
sellers' are mostly using the need of people, who of course want to be
healed, to make money. It is likely so, because there is missing a more
subtle aspect, as their view still is based on a pure materialistic aspect,
even there might be an aspect of selfless intention behind.
Could it be that this
Hernia thing is an exercise in being patient? I believe that I'm a pretty
patient person, but my Hernia let me come to my limit. You as the reader
of this writings are probably very patient, not having received any concrete
result about my healing. But wait! Don't give up. I am still convinced
that healing from hernia is possible. It's not just a believe. Indeed I
am feeling much better than one year ago, my physical condition has improved
a lot, due to my daily exercises as described before. I am working now
full time, as I did before I got sick with Fibromyalgia, although my energy
some times goes down. But yes, this might have to do with 'patience'. So
I can understand that you are waiting for a result, but please be patient!
It might help that you see the lecture of this page as an exercise! You
are doing quite well! So continue...
Several weeks have
past and I'm still waiting. I'm desperately waiting for the parcel with
the miracle formula. A few weeks later: I gave up waiting for the parcel
and started to investigate, searching for similar substances. There are
a number of other places were one can buy those supplements. What I can
see now is that the prices for those 'formulas' are far too high and I
will look for an other way to get these substances, which are: Proline,
Lysine, protein and vitamin C. I am taking now 50 gr. pure protein daily,
which is sold for body builder. The Lysine and Proline, which are important
for the cell stimulation, I haven't found yet. Then I should take 3-6 gr.
vitamin C. (over the day) But I couldn't take the high quantity of vitamin
C, because it gives too much acid to the body system. I will look for another
kind of vitamin C...
just called somebody in the USA who had written an email to me telling
that he healed himself from an inguinal hernia. In his email he hesitated
to tell me details because he wasn't absolutely sure that he was really
healed. But now when we talk about it at the phone there was no doubt about
it: He healed himself from his inguinal hernia and there is nothing left
that disturbs him anymore. He can do anything without problem, included
weight lifting and heavy work. He had an inguinal hernia for about three
years and he refused surgery at the last moment when he had already the
with the surgeon. Now he is very happy that he did so. He also makes me
happy as I have the confirmation that healing without surgery is possible,
until now I wasn't sure about it and felt pretty alone. So now my hope
has a concrete base and I look forward to my own healing. This gentleman
wants to share what he did to heal his hernia. (Go to: email
exchange) It is nearly the same what I'm doing, with very little variation,
but of course sometimes something little makes a big difference! He told
me that he takes 6 gr. of vitamin C daily and 50 gr. protein and that he
has done similar exercises as I do, but he said it is more important to
do a few movements but very strong than many and light. Also he said that
it is important to relax enough, - indeed this I would like to do, but
at the moment there is too much work and the heat is unbearable... So I
will stop writing now and relax...
Somebody had ask me
about the exercises I'm doing. It is difficult to describe them so I have
made a video about it: Inguinal
Hernia healed without surgery.
In any case one should
carefully listen at one's body and only do what feels right... I still
believe it wouldn't be a fault to ask a health professional... (But be
aware of their established rigid attitude!)
Again a few months
passed by. I'm still doing my daily exercises. It hasn't changed much,
but looking back I can observe that doing the exercises now, it is much
easier than before and I'm not getting exhausted so much. This early morning
when I went out to make a pee, I forgot to put the truss, then I noticed
that the hernia didn't come out, as it normally did. But I will not sing
hallelujah yet and go on wearing the truss, although putting in just a
small rubber plate, after the stone I had used fell down and broke into
pieces, what gave me the sign to change something about the protection.
And it works, I have no pain anymore and no problems even lifting heavy
things... Again I will try to get the vitamin C as Calcium Ascorbate
with Bioflavoids here in the pharmacy. I had bought it from the
US but it never made it through the customs. Later: This kind of vitamin
C exist here in Spain only without Bioflavoids, but this is ten times
more expensive than in the US!
Since a few days I
have some pain in my abdomen, although I'm not working at the moment. I
don't work because I'm not feeling well and have a heart problem which
are getting worse even doing little things. I even had to reduce my daily
exercises. Looking back to the last weeks, I can see what might have caused
it. The last two months I felt pretty much alone, then my cat, I have been
living with for the last ten years, died. This was a very special cat and
we were very connected. So this was an emotionally shock... Then living
in a kind of community is a permanent emotional stress. Last week we had
a meeting and there were only complains from the people here about the
daily circumstances and not even one positive comment... I know this behavior
and attitude from people since thirty years and I can take it, having reduced
my expectations to the utmost minimum, but after this I felt sick and didn't
want to see anybody... So I'm not that much surprised that also my hernia
hurts beside the heart pain. What makes it again clear, that the emotions
have an important significance and influence on health and healing. Again,
like several times before, I came to the point when I felt that I wanted
to give up with the intention of a community. These thoughts didn't make
me feel better. There are arriving every day email from people who want
to come, but the last days I haven't answered them. Now just a moment ago
there called someone who had written and we were talking for a while and
he convinced me, so I told him they (a couple) can come. This has happened
now several times that when I came near to the point of giving up, then
promising people showed up. OK, now I feel much better and I will relax.
Tomorrow is another day......?
So you might ask what
all this has to do with 'healing my hernia'. It turned out the last days,
that indeed it has to do with it. The last two weeks I had serious heart
problems, not because of an organic failure but caused from stress. Before
the heart problems were showing up, my hernia was doing pretty well, it
hasn't come out for several days and there hasn't shown any pain, so I
came near to the thought that my Hernia might be healed. But then with
my heart problems also the Hernia got worse, so obviously all is influenced
and connected with my emotional condition triggered by outside happening
and situations. Dealing with this in a different way and with another attitude
will bring the release... So you might want to go to my new heart
page and read about it. Then you will understand that 'stress' also
is influencing the healing of one's hernia and that it is essential to
do something to release one's stress... Even you are used to the daily
stress and it looks like this is normal. But even it doesn't' bother you
too much, it is still damaging your system and is causing the failure in
the long run and I suspect that stress is a hindrance for any healing .
Don't give up! Take self responsibility and do something about your emotional
situation, which is influencing your stress level! It's a challenge!
My heart trouble is
getting better and also my hernia. Since more than a week it hasn't popped
out and I have no pain. It is possible that one reason is because the last
time I haven't been working so much like before. What seems to be important
is, that now I'm much more aware of my stress level and when I notice that
I'm tense, then it needs only a little effort to relax. For example driving
in heavy traffic or doing a job fast. Obviously it is easier to observe
myself, when I'm not emotionally engaged, but then I am mostly aware of
it later, when I'm alone and let pass the happening again. So it seems
that to release one's stress it is essential to be aware of the stress
and now it becomes very clear, why the 'Stress
Release Exercise' works and is so effective.
As I told at my heart
page: I'm laying in bed since three weeks with a broken leg, not being
able to move much. Two weeks before I had the accident, I noticed, that
my hernia was not coming out when occasionally I was not wearing the truss,
like when I took a shower or did the sauna. It didn't hurt anymore and
I reduced the protection to just a small belt. Now being in bed for four
weeks for sure this is favorable for the complete healing. Meanwhile I
will continue with the exercises I am doing since more than half a year.
Not completely, due to my broken leg, but as good as I can. So then in
another three weeks I will dare not to use any protection and will just
hope that my hernia will be completely healed.
I am aware of the
fact that the overpowering authority from medical doctors of the established
health system, by stating that the only way to deal with a hernia is surgery,
has still an influence on me, but I'm stubborn enough to be convinced that
healing without surgery is possible, although all those capacities are
telling something different. Something similar happened to me now: When
I was in the hospital with my broken leg, the med. doctors said that this
needs surgery. Wanting to put two metal plates with screws to support the
bones. They reacted pretty strange when I refused surgery after I saw the
x- ray and listened to their unclear arguments. To make the story short:
They finally put my leg in plaster and let me go, again reacting strange
when I refused the medication they wanted me to take: Against the pain,
the swelling, to prevent thrombosis, etc. I admit, it was quite painful
the first three weeks, but I'm glad not to have enriched my system with
those chemicals... So lets see... (By the way: Later on I had a good, spontaneous
and human contact with another med. doctor and there might come something
else out of it. He was interested to know about my healing from Fibromyalgia
and that is the first time that a doctor was interested and reacted positive!)
Remark six years later:
My broken foot and leg has been healed perfectly without the surgery and
putting those metal plates... I'm really glad about this, because when
I had ask them how long this metal stuff would be in my body, they
told me, this would be there for the rest of my life!
Now I'm pretty sure
that my Hernia is healed. I was laying in bed with a broken leg for four
weeks. (I had continued with my exercises almost the whole time). I went
twice to the hospital in this time and I didn't wear any protection for
the hernia and I had forgotten totally about it as no problem was showing
up. The last few days I walked around with crutches and I didn't think
about my hernia.
hernia is healed!!!
But now I'm almost
sure that my hernia is healed. When walking around with crutches it makes
quite some pressure on the belly, but the hernia still doesn't come out
and also when I sneeze strongly or cough. I have nearly forgotten about
the hernia. I still haven't done weight lifting, with this I will wait
a few days more...
No, I didn't want
to wait more so I went out and lifted a big stone, but this stone seemed
not to be big enough so I took a big pallet and standing on one leg I lifted
this pallet several times. No hernia symptoms, no pain. So I can resume:
just my hernia is healed. During this healing process I went through a
transformation which included my whole system. I had to develop strength
and patience to be able to continue. Often I felt totally alone, but having
still some trust left that the right thing would appear in the right moment,
so then it could happen and it happened!
I always felt that
I had to go on, listening to my intuition. Now I can see that this was
right and knowing that out there are millions of people with hernia and
hundred thousands not having the possibility to be repaired by surgery,
but not knowing that they might be able to heal themselves, so then they
are hopeless and just suffering. It is possible to state now that one can
heal oneself from inguinal hernia without surgery. It is not easy and one
will need a lot of patience and inner strength to do so, but better to
intent than to suffer without hope. If somebody with hernia read all what
I wrote, that shows that this person has patience and so as well might
take the initiative and self responsibility to do something about ones
situation and condition.
The established and
untouchable statement: "Only surgery can repair an Inguinal hernia"
is not solid anymore. If I could do it, then others also can do it and
if you are younger than sixty than it will be probably much easier. Now
you must not feel as a victim anymore. The hernia is a challenge, if you
go through the healing process the benefit is greater than you can imagine
on, I'm reflecting: How is it possible that millions of humans are suffering
from an inguinal hernia and the only solution offered by the medical system
is surgery? There are hundred thousands of untreated hernias because there
are people who can't afford surgery, they are just suffering and feeling
as hopeless victims. Isn't there any doctor who might be motivated to investigate
and then offer clear information about an alternative way to heal the hernia?
If this information would exist, then one doesn't need to go through all
this investigations oneself like I did and then the healing could happen
much faster, not having all the doubts.
Well, one thing now
is absolutely clear:
healing of an inguinal hernia without surgery is possible!
And the good thing
is, that not only the symptoms disappear. During the healing process is
shows and becomes clear that the healing is also a growing,
because the whole being is included with all its different layers. Indeed,
this makes it much more difficult, but it is worth the effort!

months later: I have no pain or any other symptom and I'm working
full time. I am doing my exercises every morning for about twenty minutes
and once or twice a week a sauna. In all this time there have been three
responses from people who also rejected surgery and were looking for an
alternative way and so they came to my Web page...
a year later: I'm still symptom free and work hard full time,
even lifting heavy things and there is no problem. Still I'm doing my exercises
every morning to keep my body fit. A few weeks ago I met the med. doctor
who had diagnosed my hernia three years ago and I told him that I haven't
done surgery but that I'm healed. So he checked me carefully by pressing
and pulling and then said that my hernia is still there, even though nothing
pops out, - for about two weeks I had pain and felt bad...
Does this now means
that I'm not healed? What can I do with this 'professional' information?
In a way I don't care, but does it mean that I'm still influenced by the
authority of a medical doctor? Now I'm feeling good again and will continue
to feel healed and work on the healing of the whole. (If possible,
I will avoid to meet any doctor... My doc is a good person and for sure
he is doing his best, but he is stuck in his limited professional view!
Like all the established health system of our society!)
There are many people
who are writing to me and all want to avoid surgery, so I thought that
a mailing list would be good to give us a platform to connect and support
each other. So I have created a group: Hernia
support Google Group. You can find a digest of my comments of
posts in this group at my page 'digest'.
three years later: I have no symptoms
of an hernia and can work like I did before. I still do the exercises every
day for about twenty minutes, early in the morning when laying in bed.
If I wouldn't have created this 'hernia support group' and so necessarily
reading posts, I would have forgotten about the subject hernia.
In this hernia group
I am observing that people with an inguinal hernia are extremely occupied
and worrying about their hernia, every thing turns around this disturbing
condition and themselves and they don't want to look at themselves and
the game they are involved in. They are suffering but at the same time
they seem to be content. Might it be that their hernia fills a void in
their life? When I suggest again and again that it is important and essential
for their healing that they do the 'StressReleaseExercise'
so that they are able to look behind their personality games, because there
might lay the reason for their disease, - then this is ignored. There are
maybe 2% of the present members who are doing the exercise...
Another thought: If
people are so occupied with their hernia, going into details about their
healing permanently, then this fills their life - and out of this they
get the feeling of 'existence' of their personality. If this is the case,
then unconsciously they don't want to heal, they cling on their disease,
the same as they cling on their personality. Absurd but it shows how much
people are stuck in their condition.
five years later: 3.9.2008
I'm still free of any symptoms of an hernia. I want to mention, that even
though I have no symptoms, I am doing the exercises as I have shown at
my video, every morning. That feels good for my whole condition. Since
a few weeks I am also doing the 'Ankle
Pump Practice' and that might be also helpful in healing ones hernia.
I will report about it later...
ten years later: 15.3.2013
A person who had send a comment has mentioned doing some
yoga exercises and gave me a link:
On this page I found
the following asanas. These might be of interest for people who are healing
paschimottanasana, pawanmuktasana, utthanpadasana, matsyasana and sarvangasana
were selected based on its effects to compress inguinal canal, strengthen
the abdominal muscles and to reduce the intra-abdominal pressure, because
weakness or flabbiness of abdominal muscles and elevated intra-abdominal
pressure may be the causes for the hernia in non-congenital subjects included
in this study.
Vajrasana is a meditative
asana not involving much of muscle work and was used as a preparatory for
yoga therapy with added benefits of compressing inguinal canal which will
prevent protrusion of abdominal contents.
Ushtrasana and paschimottanasana
were included based on the principle of proprioceptive neuro muscular facilitation
technique namely repeated stretch  i.e. the stretch reflex elicited
from muscles under the tension of elongation will facilitate muscles to
contract. Ushtrasana will facilitate abdominal muscles to stretch and paschimottanasana
will facilitate them to contract along with compression over inguinal canal.
abdominal muscles, compresses inguinal canal and also reduces intra-abdominal
pressure by releasing air from gastro intestinal tract and utthanpadasana
has got direct strengthening effect over abdominal muscles.
Matsyasana is complementary
to sarvangasana included to neutralize the flexion force created over the
normal neck and sarvangasana is to move abdominal contents toward thorax
thereby reducing abdominal pressure and to prevent protrusion of abdominal
contents or to facilitate replacement of herniated contents.

you really believe that the so well and firm established medical system
will change? That would mean that there happens a shift from the money
based attitude towards a world view that goes beyond all that? Hernia surgery
is a billion $ business, the same as the big business with chemical medication.
Do you seriously think that a few ants nibbling on the feet of the pharma
elephant will make this giant move into another direction?
It is not possible
that there happens a change in the medical health system as being part
of the social system, if the change is not caused from within in its essential
structure of the whole system and that would be a rising of the level of
The medical system
has during centuries built up the position of an untouchable authority,
making people dependent and putting them in bondage. Not necessarily by
manipulation like advertisements, but just because it is serving the infantile
need of people to stay in dependency of authorities, not having the need
to think by themselves and maybe questioning their condition.
There is no one to
blame. The EHS is a manifestation, the same as other forms, as a step of
evolution presenting the still very limited consciousness. Also the doctors
can't be blamed, they do as good as they can and with their best intention
in their limited personal condition, coming from being educated within
the established system.
I have seen recently
a few med. doctors who are in crisis, because their personal growing process
brought them into doubts about their professional doing and they are questioning
the established system and with this they are getting into a very unstable
situation. Some even thinking about giving up their profession, because
within the established health system their is no space or the possibility
to go beyond, not even in alternative or natural healing.
don't change the attitude of the patients or getting them out of their
dependency. There is no alternative information given about what disease
really is and seldom there is a question about the root cause. Mainly the
symptoms are treated and not seen in connection with other levels of the
individual human system.
There is little hope
that this will change during the next generations. So any discussion of
sick people about the development of the medical system is pretty useless
and wasting ones energy, that better should be used to directly taking
care of oneself. Like talking
about the various
methods of surgery, - - - if one really want to avoid surgery, knowing
that from there no other way is offered.
That now from a few
doctors 'watchful waiting' is suggested is not a real change as long there
is no suggestion given about all possibilities to help ones healing and

The first step in
ones healing would be to take self responsibility and that would mean to
step out of dependency. That of course can't be supported by the one who
makes his living from the dependency of sick people to him. So it is a
pretty hopeless situation
and only a very few
people will be able to do a real self healing for their whole being.
I repeat: "Alternative
approaches to hernia treatment" offered from the EHS will stay on the
limited level of treating symptoms and not include the 'whole being' even
though it might be called 'holistic'.
If in our healing
process we don't question our existence in all parts, then this 'healing'
will not be real and not be part of our 'growing process'.

and Answers at the

am starting the BeiYin programs and I have several questions.
am not a health professional, so you better don't take what I write as
an advice. The good thing is that all what I know comes from my personal
experience and had served to heal myself, but must not necessarily have
a value for somebody else.
Is it ok to stopped all physical activity going with the assumption that
if I do daily exercises and eliminate any physical activities like mowing
the lawn, running the dog will help create a faster healing process
of strengthening the muscles? Or am I creating a further weakening
of the body and the abdominal wall?
I found myself with an inguinal hernia I could not work like before because
I had a lot of pain when moving and so I kept quiet as much I could. Even
sitting at the computer was painful, but then when I investigated and found
out that the weak abdominal muscles are one of the reasons of the hernia,
then I started exercises to strengthen these muscles. But always laying
down and taking care that there was no bulge coming out. I did also yoga
and one day when I was standing on my head, I didn't notice that my hernia
was coming out and suddenly I had a terrible pain and this for a couple
of days... So I was very aware and alert. When wearing the truss,
I did the work that was necessary to do, but carefully not to overdo. Running
the dog would have been too much and I didn't cut the grass and left things
that were not that important.
I believe that those
exercises that are specially done to strengthen the muscles are important
and then moderated daily physical activities.
I will not forget
to stress the fact that strengthening the muscles is just one part of ones
healing... without all the other levels waiting, the hernia will not heal!
I notice if I eat a super big meal there will be a swelling the next day,
sometimes immediately if I am walking around. This swelling will
not go away unless I lay flat. If I eat small meals the swelling sometime
will not appear for 36 to 48 hours. The food in our system causes the swelling
to protrude out?
Why sometime immediately
and sometimes a delay? Does it depend on how fast our bodies digest food?
need a certain quantity of food to survive and we need a certain quality
of food to stay healthy or to heal. In our society people eat far too much,
in a extremely bad quality and in combinations that makes it difficult
for the digestive system. So this is another important step in ones healing
process: To become conscious about ones eating habits. One need to become
critical to what is offered and check ones used habits. Yes, small meals
are better then filling ones stomach up to the limit. Even with small meals
one should not mix things that are difficult to digest when wrong combined.
(Search for 'Budwig Trennkost')
of food makes digestion difficult if not impossible and so there is no
digestion but fermentation and this is producing a lot of gas, that increases
the pressure in the intestines and so if there is a hole, then it tries
to release the pressure by coming out there.
I notice if I eat sweets and pies really causes a problem. I was trying
to eat pies to gain weight, which was a big mistake. Is there any
truth to eating the wrong food?
I have answered above. For example peas, beans and lentils in itself have
a combination that is difficult to digest. If you want to built up muscles
then what I did was an intake of proteins with something made from Soya.
You can get it at your health food store, that is what body builder take.
In any case you should avoid sweets.
I found on another site that coffee and alcohol is not good for hernia?
is not only not good for the hernia it is not good for anything if you
really want to take care of yourself and stay healthy. It is good to numb
yourself or speed you up so that you stay busy but not being aware of yourself.
I notice if I get upset at my condition the swelling gets harder and bigger.
Is there a direct correlation between the mind and the healing process?
now it should be pretty clear that there is correlation between all the
levels of your system! There is NO real healing process if not all the
levels are included! If one just is treating the body level, then this
is not so much different as what the medical health system is doing, suppressing
the symptoms, that's what they call 'healing', it doesn't really matter
if they use alternative means...
I lost 7 pounds since this relapsed 3 weeks ago. It is impossible to gain
weight back since
my intake of food up and beyond the normal level causes a larger swelling.
Does it make sense to just eat healthy with small amount during the day?
In time as the muscle in the abdominal wall becomes stronger my food intake
will increase gradually?
believe eating healthy and that amount your body needs, that will be enough.
Let the body take care of itself, don't worry about it. Become stronger
in your trust and intuition. Your body has an inbuilt healing force, you
only need to give space to it... (Still it is the question what 'healthy
food' really means!)
I do the treadmill, slow walk 15 minutes on an empty stomach 4 times a
week in the morning before breakfast. There is no swelling while doing
this. Is the treadmill routine ok?
a 'treat mill' is (I guess it is this carpet that moves under your feet)
it should be ok if you feel good with it. If there is no bulge coming out
when doing this, then it seems that your hernia is not that bad. Just be
sensitive about what your body tells you, so listen carefully!
Let say you are shopping at a store and you have a swelling are we suppose
to stop and go straight home and lay flat or just ignore the swelling if
there is no pain?
is not a good thing to do, it might be dangerous and have a slash back!
I was wearing a truss
and I was careful that never there was coming out a bulge, so I was wearing
the truss from the morning until I lay down in the evening. When I took
a shower, then I protected my hernia with one hand.
One time last week it took 5 minutes instead of 10 seconds for the swelling
to go down while laying flat. Is this normal?
there is nothing 'normal', it depends all on the different condition of
a person. My hernia was getting better and gave me less problems, just
by doing the exercise and then relaxing enough, then of course taking care
of my food intake and also taking various supplements. My final healing
happens when I had a broken leg and food and was forced to lay totally
quiet for three weeks, after this my hernia never came out again. I continued
with my exercises and being careful with food, - until now I never again
had any pain or disturbance. - - - That's now two years ago.
Does everyone here continue a normal life with the swelling as long as
there is no pain?
can continue with a 'normal life' if one want to heal oneself. You will
need to change not only your habits but also your attitudes, especially
towards 'life'. That means how you relate to what comes to you and how
you respond to this. This is a transformational process. Without this there
is no real healing! The cause will not have been discovered and not been
healed. So again: Your whole being needs to be included in your healing
process, with all levels: Body, mind and emotions, then there will be an
opening to the real healing energy that comes from beyond ones personality.
To connect with it one needs to do it consciously by doing meditation or

from not being connected with your 'source'. What that means you must discover
yourself... Or at least starting with some questions...
From a post in the
'hernia support group':
"Hello i wish i knew
how many of them [from a 'study' of 364 persons
in 'watchful waiting'] wore a truss?"
or no Truss - is that the question?
This kind of 'nonsense poem' was my response after many posts
down into the darkness of unknown fields
hopeless out of desperation
fighting forces of evil!
Alone carrying the
weight of millions unanswered questions.
Where is the ideal
truss that can fulfill my longing?
fulfillment exist or is it just a wishful dream?
There arises Venus
from the depth of a sparkling ocean
offering a truss made
out of light, suitable for all who suffer
blown up bellies -
vulnerable feelings protected with fat.
ones own existence out of pain, desperation and fear
now giving space for
spaces beyond odd bellies, hopes and beliefs.
Freedom beckons! Let
go being the center of your belly being
your truss reaches
out for new horizons! Trust your truss!
needs protection? From what? To cover ones nothingness?
Falling back into
black holes created by turning around oneself?
Light energy rises
our focus of attention: Upwards and inwards.
Trust or no trust
- that is the question!
from members of this
group about their detailed worries, that are also important to be cleared
up, but shouldn't cause to forget the most essential... I am expressing
this not to accumulate
tension in myself, that then might come out as anger...

Hernia Support Google Group
'Support' in my opinion does not mean to find confirmation for one's old
established view and not for the view of this world how it seems to be,
because we have been told what and how it is.
u o t e :
kind of truss did you use when you finally got healed of this 'thing'?
What was your program?
YOU are the HERNIA - YOU need to heal - You need to heal YOURSELF.
As long you see your
hernia as a 'thing' that must be eliminated, there can't be real
You better drop "programs",
especially those that are precious for you as part of your
personality. You need
first to be aware of these programs, then finding out their origin,
then deciding to keep
or to drop them. It is part of your transformation. Without this
there is no real healing.
Healing is a process
that includes your whole being.
There is healing needed
for parts of yourself you don't know yet that these exist, these show up
during the process of your healing transformation.
It needs your engagement.
You are NOT a victim. You are responsible for yourself. You ARE your disease.
You need to respond to your disease as a manifestation of imbalance of
yet unknown parts and levels of yourself.
Give space to yourself,
dare to go into unknown spaces.
Become aware and pronounce
questions that show up from those spaces. Use SRE
available help to
gain the base to go on in a creative way, getting out of being stuck in
worn out behavior
pattern of this society.
Why your intestines
are coming out? Why your tissue and muscles became too week, not
being able to hold
the pressure from inside?
Might it be that you
put stuff into your body your digestive system can't deal with? It's
an impossible job
you ask to be done, filling yourself up with junk, that goes into
of digestion. Check your input of food! Give a rest to your digestive system!
Eating might confirm you in your existence, but be aware that this is a
substitute. That's part of the program delivered by this society and so
part of the common disease, causing more disease...
Isn't there something
else more important? Do you chew what you take in? Do you decide
what to take in? On
all levels of your existence? Not only with food. Look at it what you take
in on all other levels: emotionally and mentally. How much junk you take
in! You are not even chewing it and for sure most of it you are not digesting!
There are a lot more
things to deal with before one can get near to the subject 'healing oneself'...
Do you really want
to go into this yet unknown terrain? How serious you are about it? Then
you might have stepped already out of the common dependency from the established
health system. You might know that the 'easy way' of taking pills and repair
with surgery has very little to do with healing. But are you really willing
to confront the unknown that will show up from outside and from yourself?
It is a challenge very few are capable to deal with...
So as the first step
it is necessary that you clear up your position. Are you aware of
Are you aware that you are programmed? That you have a self image that
contains all the concepts delivered from this society? Are you aware that
you are identified with all this and so defending it when ever this is
touched by influences that are not confirming your established concepts?
Do you have questions about all this or do you prefer not to look at it?
Finding enough good reasons...
Observe how people
are worrying about their little problems that keep them busy with all those
If you are finished
with this, then you might come up with some more essential questions...
PS: My writing might
offend one or the other reader. This is not my intention. Probably what
I'm expressing is not what you want to hear. It is not the form - or have
you a better way to say it? If you feel provoked, then this can be good
if you respond to it and become aware of your reaction...
One thing about stress release: It can't be done frantically.
Longman dictionary of contemporary English says: "Frantic" =
1.) in an uncontrolled
state of feeling: wildly anxious, afraid, happy, etc.
2.) marked by hurried
and disordered activity.
Talking about "Stress
release": this indeed is difficult in a frantic state, but it can be done
with the help of the 'StressReleaseExercise' even in a frantic state.
It's take time to learn to relax so don't be disappointed when it doesn't
happen right away.
One can learn to relax one's body using various kinds of manipulation like
massage or auto suggestion. This can have a result and can also have a
relaxing influence for ones state of mind. But I believe it does not necessarily
changes the cause of ones frantic feelings. To change this, what would
be part of ones 'healing process', one will need to go to the root of it
and this for sure is not just a matter of relaxation. How one can find
out about the root cause of ones disturbance? Probably this has to do with
ones personal evolution. That means if one is ready to get out of one's
personality games, then one will be motivated to direct ones energy to
find out about it and not any more just turn around oneself. Then one will
ask questions and one will find the right answer. One answer can be that
one starts the 'StressReleaseExercise'...
Just slow down, ...
Tell a rabbit that is hunted by a fox to slow down! The 'personality' is
constantly in the state of being hunted, (or chasing after one of the many
goals offered by this society) so there is hardly any relaxed state possible.
...don't force it and it will come.
That's right: many things one can't force, they have to grow by itself,
with the help of the growing force we all and every thing that exist have
as an essential part within. Also fighting against something often is useless
as it gives energy to that what one is fighting.
But some times it
is necessary to make a decision and that needs a certain strength and so
forcing oneself, otherwise one will do nothing even knowing that it would
be necessary and good and so nothing will come...
To be able to make
a decision one needs at least a certain self knowledge, being aware of
ones natural laziness and numbness. One has to be aware of the games ones
personality is playing to hold oneself together, not wanting to do anything
that might effect ones established state of being. Being aware of
ones defense one will need to force oneself enough to take action: Starting
with the 'StressReleaseExercie' for example:
PS: I might think that
it is useless to write in this group if not at leasta few of all the members
here will start with the SRE.
Oh boy! Humans are
tough cookies, they do all kind of things destroying themselves but have
great resistance against every thing that might bring them out of their
