This alternative, holistic approach toward hernia remediation is applicable only to those inguinal hernia cases that have been evaluated by a competent physician who is experienced in this particular specialty.
If an inguinal hernia is in jeopardy of strangulation, then surgery may be the only intervention that will successfully repair the hernia site. Likewise, if a hernia is irreducible over the long term and adhesions form, surgery may be the only alternative.
Self-diagnosis and self-treatment of an advanced or serious inguinal hernia is not recommended because of the potential serious consequences to both abdominal and overall health.
Regardless of the holistic approach utilized, it is highly advisable that a qualified healthcare professional, with direct experience in inguinal hernia remediation, be involved in the formulation and monitoring of any long-range treatment plan.
Hernias are extremely difficult to remediate unless you know well two things: (i) the many techniques and treatments which can contribute to a permanent cure and (ii) the various co-factors which caused the hernia to occur in the first place. The Hernia Coach consulted with some of the most competent healthcare professionals over a 6 year period, as well as read and studied the most authoritative literature on the subject of inguinal hernia. Throughout the period of hernia remediation each healing modality, detox protocol, and exercise regimen was undertaken with great care and patience. The last thing a hernia sufferer wants to do is exacerbate their hernia, especially to the point of requiring surgery.
My Story: Healing An Inguinal Hernia Holistically
The Hernia Coach initially sustained his inguinal hernia on Wednesday evening of July 8th of 2008. Doesn’t everyone know the exact day and time, place and circumstances of their first hernia blow-out?! That inguinal hernia healed with finality during the last week of May, 2014. Hence, it was nearly six years since the cure finally occurred.
During that 6-year period he experimented with numerous health initiatives, noting the pros and cons of various exercise programs and hatha yoga routines, healing modalities and alternative therapies, nutritional regimens and detoxification protocols, as well as an assortment of herbal, homeopathic, vibropathic and nutraceutical formulations. Other holistic approaches such as color and light therapies, sound and music therapies, laser and bio-energetic therapies were also utilized in the search for a cure. The reader will therefore be spared the extraordinary amount of trial and error which was performed in order to arrive at a fairly distilled set of hernia remediation protocols.
As a matter of fact, a good number of the health articles and wellness essays, which will appear at The Hernia Coach companion site, were written after various pursuits which were undertaken in the conduct of deliberate inguinal hernia remediation. With that said, it is highly recommended that anyone who is serious about healing their hernia — WITHOUT surgery — read those health articles and wellness essays when the new website is live. Each and every one serves as a valuable coaching sessions that will only increase your chances of success.
There is a very significant emotional component to inguinal hernias that is almost always overlooked by both patient and practitioner alike. If you wish to proceed down this particular healing path, you MUST come to terms with this profound aspect of your hernia. To ignore it is to do so at your own peril. As a matter of fact, many folks have eventually suffered a hernia blowout on the side of their pubic bone … because they failed to address this highly significant component. With that understanding, please read the following correlation made by a well known New Age healer:
“Ruptured relationships. Strains, burdens, Incorrect creative expression”
– YOU CAN HEAL YOUR LIFE by Loiuse L. Hay
HERNIA – Ruptured relationship(s), Straining too much, Overwhelming life burdens
Hopefully we have sufficiently focused your attention on this necessary aspect of hernia remediation. As long as it hovers in your awareness as you set about the process of addressing the various physical angles, you’ll do just fine. Eventually, one day, you will release whatever it is that (i) causes you to strain too much … (ii) overwhelms you with burdens on the physical, mental and emotional levels, and/or (iii) ruptures your most important relationships.
Anecdote: The Hernia Coach, in the months prior to his hernia cure, was doing a LOT of research on the internet that required reading some very funny material and watching some hilarious videos. For the first time in his adulthood, genuine laughter returned to his life. This happened quite naturally … and imperceptibly. There is no question, but the way, that both laughter and smiling strengthens muscles which are ultimately connected to those which interpenetrate the abdominal floor. You’ve heard the phrase — BELLY LAUGH — yes?! Well, the sooner you start having them, the more the emotional influences will dissolve.
