THE INGUINAL HERNIA: HEALING AND PREVENTING AN INGUINAL HERNIA

Why would someone have an Inguinal Hernia? Below I get into more detail of the location of the Inguinal Hernia. Also, bodily fluids and waste that gather there because of a complex maze these substances have to rise up [on the right side] and exit [on the left]. So, depending on the family health history and individuals health history, the body may not be that inherently strong. Then repetitive movement done under stress in sports, work outs, lifting for work, an activity done to release anger [exercise and sports are often used to vent, and this is not always done consciously] adds to creating a Hernia in this particular area. Sometimes when people love to do something they overdo it. Many sports today often stress one side. Dance is very often that way. Often dancers and choreographers have a stronger side and favor it. Using one leg over and over again in fencing, soccer, kicking in football, stance in baseball, high jump, skateboarding, and dance are some easily identifiable examples. I hope this makes sense in explaining how an Inguinal Hernia can begin.

A TAKE ON HOW THE BODY BREAKS DOWN

When the PH of our blood, urine, lymph, and other bodily fluids and waste measures highly acidic for years it is easier for health problems to become more frequent. Why? Because that acidic fluid that all our tissues are bathing in aids in breaking down the body and putting it in a position of defensiveness. We are always irritated. Our Immune System is then always in a defensive mode. This will also be reflected in our personality. It will influence how we see the world. We can feel attacked, paranoid and easily angered. Depending on how frequently a person sees a doctor, blood tests are taken, fear about being sick pervades. This knowingly or unknowingly determines the future of our health. One Physician  treating my father, after my dad had a stroke, took me aside and gave me advice I will never forget. He told me to keep my dad away from doctors that always want to run tests. Some people would cringe at this advice, but I knew exactly what he was saying. I do have to interject here that many doctors do run tests to protect themselves from lawsuits and create a paper trail that shows they were on top of things in case of a malpractice suit.

BACK TO THE INGUINAL HERNIA: RIGHT SIDE

A hernia is a weakening of the facial and deep layers of body tissue. I know first hand that strain or overuse is not the primary reason hernias form in the groin area. An Inguinal Hernia is located in the lower quadrant of the loins. It is an area on men and women where there are strong physiological and functional demands, not just structural. A gathering point for waste matter and other bodily fluids. On the right there is the Cecum and Appendix. Waste matter has to move up against gravity and when it does not, becomes impacted, the PH of the entire body, eventually takes a big hit. That right corner tissue becomes a weak spot. The Appendix has a similar reason for becoming stuck and sluggish. The rest of the GI Tract, Cecum and Appendix greatly effect one another due to location and function. When things are not moving, often beginning in childhood, a person is more inclined to have a hernia. I have treated two males under the age of 18 who were developing an Inguinal Hernia. They were both Olympic Trial Fencers, lunging on one leg repetitively. Their diet was poor and their stress level was great. Their coach was not interested in addressing the enormous difference in thigh circumference that was beyond apparent on the overworked lunging leg. It was criminal in my mind. All these kids wanted to do was please their coach and get to the  US Fencing Team Trials. In doing that they were creating some serious imbalances in their tissue.

INGUINAL HERNIA: LEFT SIDE

The left side of the loins is where the exit point of waste is located and it is a complex maze. If a person is aware of  problems with Digestion or Elimination  it will often be experienced in this lower left area. From Chronic Constipation to Loose Stools, all will show a build up of toxic waste that weakens the tissue. How can it be any other way? The waste sitting there, unable to exit, creates acidity that weakens the tissue. Also, the location of the Bladder puts an added pressure on the whole pelvic – groin area of the body in terms of Uric Acid building. If the rest of the body can not let go of waste in a timely way, the Bladder will be a highly stressed organ for helping to create some kind of Homeostasis. Not forgetting the involvement of the Kidneys here, but any means.

AND THE POINT IS…

If you have an Inguinal Hernia and want to heal it without a surgical procedure, have had a surgery or are planning to have a surgery it will only help to balance out your body’s PH. The time to start is now. It will not happen overnight. You can begin to do this by eating a diet that is more alkaline while taking something that absorbs old waste throughout the entire body. Yes, I am talking about Sodium Bentonite Clay and or Zeolite Clay. There are other clays that may help and here is one source to do some research. However, is is imperative to come up with a long term plan to absorb acidy body fluids and waste. Again, they have accumulated due to sitting around stagnating and  are very irritating and weakening to the entire organism.

Our body has an internal  protection plan to buffer an overly acidic PH. One part of that is taking minerals from our bones [Calcium is one] to buffer and balance out the building acids. This is not a long term plan for buffering for obvious reasons. Without intervention deep sickness occurs. An Inguinal Hernia is a cry for help. Things are just too acidic. irritated and breaking down.

WHAT DO YOU DO TO ABSORB AND ESCORT OUT THE ACIDIC WASTE MATTER?

Taking a substances such as Sodium Bentonite Clay and Calcium Citrate along with dietary changes keeps all our cells in a less acidic environment. A more Acid Bath is what eventually leads to Auto Immune Illnesses and all Diagnosed and Undiagnosed Illness and Discomfort. A balanced PH is the only way to heal. Adhesions that form throughout the body, especially in the Groin, deeply involve the Psoas. These are areas where Inguinal Hernia Surgery has placed screening material and often needs serious help. Adhesions can be made more flexible with Rolfing or other Structural Integration work, but it does hurt. The released acids [ Lactic and others] will just be reabsorbed if there is nothing to sop them up with. Also, these Adhesions will reform without the absorption of these acids and change in diet and lifestyle. Adhesions are a way for the body to protect itself and try to shore up the area, but in the end it causes more pain and stiffness. A kind of  mending that is not a long term plan.

I have been in contact with a few people who are grappling with an Inguinal Hernia. A Hernia in the groin area can be painful due to the pressure of waste build up, and the pressure that is put on this core area to stand, walk and bend. Annoying and painful, it is an undeniable wake up call. There is not much more medicine can do years after an Inguinal Hernia surgery to ease the pain, stiffness and inflexibility. More of the same mounts as waste builds. It is amazing what people are willing to accept from a Physician that would get an Alternative Practitioner the boot or worse. Lawsuit….

HERE ARE SOME PROGRAMS TO CHECK OUT TO HELP CREATE HEALING IN THE BODY:

The Body Ecology Diet. A book worth reading and a diet with MANY aspects worth exploring. The downside of The BED is that it is high in fermented foods and liquids that are very cleansing and tend to add to the acid load. No Sodium Bentonite Clay in this Protocol. Accompanied by SBC or some other clay, The BED could be the missing link and better vehicle for healing.

Ejuva Cleanse is one more balanced colon and whole body cleanse that can help absorb acids and create healing in the body. It can be done at a slow pace. The quality when I used it was very high. Worth checking out. Do not discount this product because of David Wolfe, spokesperson for the faulty Nutribullet, endorses it.

Dr. Fred Bisci PHD  has some very well earned wisdom during his 82 + years on the planet. His focus on creating whole body health by healing the GI Tract is solid.

The Unique Healing Program Donna Pessin. No, I do not get a dime for recommending The UHP. I have been on The Unique Healing Program for almost two years. Decades of searching brought me to try this program and it is most definitely, for me, been the missing link to healing my digestion and elimination woes. Lots of videos and free info on The UHP site.

Will add more as I think of it.

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: DEFINING THE WORD CLEANSE

THE BODY IS ALWAYS CLEANSING, EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT ON A CLEANSE! YES, JUST LIKE NATURE THERE HAS TO BE A REGULAR LETTING GO OF TOXIC SUBSTANCES WITHIN THE BODY TO MAKE ROOM FOR NEW CELL GROWTH. CONFUSED? WELL, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. HOWEVER, THIS CLEANSING IS NECESSARY AND CAN NOT GO ON HARMONIOUSLY IN THE BODIES OF MOST PEOPLE. WHY? BECAUSE THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE ARE NOT AWARE THAT THE BODY HAS ITS OWN ECOSYSTEM. BECAUSE OF THIS FEW HONOR THIS NATURAL PROCESS. THEY TAKE MEDICATIONS TO SUPPRESS WHAT CAN NOT LEAVE IN A TIMELY AND COMFORTABLE WAY.

TAKING IN MORE THAN WE ARE LETTING GO OF CAUSES BIG PROBLEMS, AND OVERLOADS ALL ORGANS. ESPECIALLY ORGANS OF EXCRETION. THIS IS ESPECIALLY NOTICEABLE IN THE COLON, BLADDER, KIDNEYS, LUNGS AND SKIN. THIS IS DEMONSTRATED BY SICKNESS OF ALL KINDS, CONSTIPATION, TUMORS, ACHES, PAINS, SENSORY OVERLOAD, DEPRESSION, MENTAL ILLNESS, ACNE, SHINGLES, OTHER SKIN CONDITIONS AND MUCH WORSE. SIMPLE AND COMPLICATED IS THIS EQUATION.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH MYSELF AND OTHERS

Okay, so when I found The UHP, over twenty months ago, I was very confused by the way Donna Pessin used the word cleanse. Cleanse to me meant that you fast or eat a very simple diet that could be a simple macrobiotic, simple raw food, juice feasting, superfoods and green smoothie dominant. Why? These ways of eating are mostly vegetable, low in fat and sugar. They give the digestive system a rest from breaking down of fats, dense grains and foods high in sugars. Yes, not all raw food cleanses are based on eating large amounts of fruit. In fact most fruit can be a very poor choice for many people. Why? Because they are high in sugar. Yes, fruit is sugar. No, I am not being obnoxious. Some people do not believe, know or want to know this.

The word cleanse, used in The Unique Healing /Donna Pessin, seems to mean eating substances that add to the load of what the body can not already handle. Eating foods high in sugar, refined and non refined carbs, some spices, caffeine, wine, alcohol, recreational drugs, medications, chemicals create overwhelm. They can bring the body to a point where more acid PH substances make our symptoms of illness / disease worse. In order to keep certain eating and lifestyle habits going people seek out medical practitioners of all types to help them be able to continue doing what they are doing, until they can not anymore. That list of practitioners sought out includes traditional medical doctors, chiropractors, massage therapists, herbalists, psychiatrists, acupuncturists, nurse practitioners, colon therapists. The list is long and getting longer.

THE CLAY CRUTCH

Yes, some people think they can use sodium bentonite clay for a similar purpose. To eat foods that are cleansing, while healing, and not feel the effects. Personally, I do not find this works long term and sometimes at all. The Unique Healing Program will help heal the ecosystem of the body so that eating will once again become an enjoyable experience. This takes time. The ability or inability of Sodium Bentonite Clay to play this role has a great deal to do with the elimination of long held toxins on any particular day. Whatever is coming down the pipe, as Donna Pessin outlines in her videos. In other words, it is impossible to pinpoint exactly what causes what on any particular day. It is not wise to rely on Sodium Bentonite Clay as a sure fire way to feel good while eating and drinking more acid forming substances while healing an already acidic ecosystem.

BACK TO THE WORD CLEANSE

The point that I want to make clear is that the our body knows how to cleanse. That is something that most people do not understand. Practitioners and patient – clients from all kinds of health backgrounds do not understand this. Purposely cleansing, going on a juice fast, or eating more acid forming foods that add more stress to the body have a similar effect on the organs of elimination, which are already overloaded. This is especially true WITHOUT  the ingestion of an absorbing substance like Sodium Bentonite Clay. So, if you are going to fast, juice feast, water fast ingesting Sodium Bentonite Clay or using a Colon Cleansing Program [Ejuva or Rise and Shine] would be something to consider. For me it is imperative.

I hope what I have written here makes sense to those who read it. Cleansing is a word that is used widely today. It is used with little or no understanding the fact that the body is always cleansing and has its own protection system. We can either choose to help it out or hinder it once we know how it works. How the body heals is something that is not taught in school. Not in my schools, anyway.

REMOVE ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS FROM YOUR BODY

OUR BODY CAN HEAL WHEN GIVEN THE RIGHT TOOLS AND UNDERSTANDING

The one statement that has inspired me to juice fast, relayed to me by nutritional coach Ron Strauss, comes from Dr. Richard Schulze. I am paraphrasing:

“Juice fasting works, if you can just get people to do it.”

WORKS FOR WHAT?

Eating, digesting and processing food expends cellular energy. The more the body can use that energy for regeneration, daily functioning and cleansing the better. Cleansing can lead to healing. When we stop eating solids or limit our intake the entire body starts to release toxins. Absorption and a  timely exit of these toxins is essential. Why? So they do not become reabsorbed. Ingesting an edible clay, enemas or colonics are essential. Sodium Bentonite Clay is an excellent choice for this purpose.

HOW TO CLEANSE

Juice Feasting can be a great alternative to juice fasting.  If these two options are somewhat daunting, there are simple Macrobiotic Diet plans that are very effective. Why is that? Just cutting out flours, fats, refined sugars, alcohol, caffeine, etcetera give all our systems a rest. Also, Ayurveda has many cleansing approaches that work well.

The paraphrased qoute by Dr. Schulze can be applied to many situations in life. Do something! In order to create change action is involved. Change comes from believing we can and do make a difference with our decisions and  actions.

Here is the something to consider: Do I want to enter the current predominate consciousness about aging?  The consciousness that says our bodies belong to doctors, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies. Sadly, for many people today, nursing homes and assisted living are the accepted end points for their lives. I encourage people of all ages to question this way of thinking, living and treatment of ourselves and others.

As a postscript 11/2013: Since writing this post I have found The Unique Healing Program Donna Pessin, Healing the gut and digestive woes is the key to health. This program is not a magic bullet, but I do know it can work. You just have to do it! Do something.

Dr. Richard Schulze link here . Ron Strauss link here.

Macrobiotic Diet and Lifestyle link here. William Spear Macrobiotic Counselor link here

Ayurvedic Diet and Lifestyle link here. A concise article that explains some Ayurvedic precepts.

Juice Feasting a great way to experience many of the benefits of fasting [link here] and still be able to function in your daily life. You can Juice Feast for a day or for much longer periods of time.

If you are new to all of this, then begin by simplifying your diet, eliminating refined carbs and sugar to start. Increase the amount of steamed leafy greens and low sugar fruits, such as berries and Granny Smith apples. Check out the Macrobiotic route and Donna Pessin’s Unique Healing Program.

CLEANSING WITH HERBS AND SODIUM BENTONITE CLAY

HERBS: AT FIRST LESS IS MORE

Herbs can be a great aid in helping our organs and all our body systems release accumulated waste and rebuild. It is important not to overwhelm the excretory pathways of the body with the release of  built up waste.

SO WHAT DO YOU DO?

Consider this: Herbs are loosing and dredging up old waste matter in all parts of the body. Absorbing and escorting this sludge out of the body is essential. Sodium Bentonite Clay, taken orally, is something to research. Note the healing capabilities of this clay. The quality of clay needs to be specifically processed for internal use. Why? Because clay will absorb toxic materials that it comes in contact with during processing.

Most people, taking herbs on their own, should start with a small amount. Even though larger amounts are usually needed, it is important to start slowly. Again, unless  you are under the guidance of a ND, Herbalist, Acupuncturist, etcetera, stay with the guideline that, especially in the beginning, less is more.

Drinking fresh spring, distilled or filtered water, fresh vegetable juices and broths are needed to  help dilute impurities. Again, how do these impurities get absorbed and escorted out of the body? Consider Sodium Bentonite Clay.

A Clean simple diet helps herbs do their job more easily. Proper food combining as mentioned in past posts is a good idea to give our digestive systems a break and heal.

Colonics and enemas are a great assist. See previous blog on Colonics and Enemas.

Sodium Bentonite Clay is often included in colon cleanses. Ejuva, one reputable colon cleanse, is  worth looking into.

David Wolfe [Longevity Now] goes into great detail in the first release of his book, dvd’s and cd’s about all types of  herbs, supperfoods and  supplements to increase our life span along with quality of life.

An informative book by Rehmannia Dean Thomas about Chinese Herbal Medicine really entertains while being educational. [click here]. Healing Thresholds is the name of the book.

As a postscript: The Unique Healing Program Donna Pessin is truly worth investigating. I am currently doing this program. Sodium Bentonite Clay is a mainstay of her program. It is used to not only absorb toxins, but most effectively to heal the entire digestive tract  [link here].
