|Hernia Exercises||Healing Inguinal Hernia Without Surgery|
|"...The doctor wanted to know why I had
canceled (surgery). I said I was going to try to heal it myself. He
listened politely, then said it wouldn't work. He was wrong!... After
learning that it is important to have strong 'core muscles' I decided to
do so... This is hard to believe, but I only did this two times when the
hernia bulge went away for good!..." Boyd
Hernia Healing Procedure
BeiYin Exercise Video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjXydhvWH_M
Exercises I'm doing: (All exercises doing when laying on my back and of course when there are no intestines coming out through the hernia.)
1.) Doing a massage of the hernia place with one hand. Doing small circles, first right hand to the right and then left hand circles to the left. About one hundred times. Then massaging with both hands from down the belly upwards fifty times. Then I do bigger circles around my stomach, about 25 to 50 times, this I'm doing because the last few weeks I had stomach pain (probably because of stress and this helps.)
2.) _/\___o Feet on the ground, legs like picture, then lifting up head and chest. I started with twenty times then adding more as much it felt comfortable coming to two hundred, but now doing only 50 or 75.
3.) Then I do one round of EFT with tapping the EFT points with the affirmation: "I am in perfect health. My hernia, heart, stomach, teeth and throat are completely healed."
4.) Same position as above and I lift up straight one leg into the air and then the other: _/\___o \___o
I started with ten times each leg, went to one hundred and now I'm doing fifty.
5.) Then another round with EFT: "My abdomen is in perfect health. The cells of the tissue and muscles are very active rebuilding and enforcing my abdomen."
6.) Then laying flat on my back, legs lifted up about 15 cm: then lifting up both legs as high as possible and then putting them down but not on the ground but keeping them up about 15 cm from the ground. I started with fife times and slowly went up to sixty, now I'm doing fifty.
7.) Another round with EFT. I do: "My teeth are in perfect health. The missing ones are growing and the rotten ones and all infection and caries is completely healed."
8.) Since two weeks I started with a yoga exercise which is called 'ship'. Lifting up legs and upper body and holding this position as long as possible, breathing normal. I started with fifteen seconds, now I'm at half a minute.
9.) Another round of EFT. I had a 'writer block' and did: "I am motivated to write and I'm inspired and guided." And I continued with this even when the block had disappeared.
10.) Then I do a yoga exercise which is part of the series called 'crocodile exercise' I learned forty years ago from Swami Dev Murti. Laying on my back, legs like the first exercise, arms spread out, moving both legs together to one side to the ground and head and upper body into the other direction. I did up to two hundred times, now one hundred times.
11.) Another round of EFT whatever is needed.
12.) The same position as 10.) only knees touching chest, then moving legs to one side to the ground and upper body to the other side, etc. I started with twenty, went up to one hundred and I'm doing now fifty.
13.) The same massage like l.)
14.) Last round of EFT: " I'm in perfect health, full of energy and in a good mood."
15.) Last exercise: Lifting legs and arms into the air and shaking them strongly several times. Letting legs and arms fall relaxed down and repeating one time more the shaking.
Then putting on my trust and getting up.
Boyd Exercises - http://www.falconblanco.com/health/herniaexchange.htm
I decided to do "back arches" while lying on the floor on my stomach to exercise the lower back. I have chronic low back pain and I thought it might help. It did. To arch I simply would lift the upper and lower halves of my body so only my stomach was touching the floor. It did not seem to overly strain the hernia.
I would lay on my side and lift the upper half to exercise the sides of my abdominal muscles. Then I would lay on my back and do crunches. A crunch is not a full sit up. You simply lift and curl your shoulders towards your pelvis. Also, to exercise the lower abdominal muscles is not easy. I learned there apparently a way though. Bend your knees and spread your knees wide apart. Do NOT place your feet under anything and do not have a friend sit on them. You do not want your leg muscles to help you crunch up. You want to isolate the lower abdominals so they do all the work.
I would crunch up by first lifting up a little with the back straight. Hands can be on chest. Do not use hands behind neck to help pull yourself up or you will not be using the abdominals alone. After lifting up a little, curl your chest and shoulders towards your pelvis as far as you can while keeping your lower back on the floor.
I would do this about 10 times. Each time, at the top of the crunch I would hold it for a count of 10 while really squeezing the abdominals. Concentrate on using the abdominals. Really think 'abs', 'abs', 'abs'. You can move up and down a little to really feel the 'squeeze' in the abdominals. I could really feel the 'burn' while doing the last few reps. The numbers I give here are not so important. You have to do it yourself to find out how many to do in order to give your abdominals a good hard workout without overdoing it. You don't want to over strain your abdominals. I was concerned that this exercise might over strain my hernia, but it didn't. No strain at all.
This is hard to believe, but I only did this two times when the hernia bulge went away for good! I had learned it is important to rest muscles in order for them to grow. Rest means time between workouts. Of course, we all have to move our bodies everyday and therefore use those same muscles, but hopefully not as strenuously as during a workout.
I had gotten to the point in my workouts where I was resting a group of muscles for two weeks between workouts with very good results. Each workout I was much stronger and could lift more weight. So, why work so hard when you can get good results by exercising intelligently?
The first time I exercised my abdominals was March 30, 2006. The second time was April 15, 2006. It was sometime during the third week of April that the hernia disappeared and did not return.
Kuperman Exercises -
"... he cured his own inguinal (groin area) hernia with yoga... abdominal (or umbilical) hernias likely are a result of weakness in the rectus abdominus muscles, which run from the pubis to the rib cage. He suggests beginning with some yogic sit-ups. Lie on your back with your hands behind your head, knees bent, and lift just your head off the floor (no curling or crunching!). You may want to avoid poses that put excess pressure on the abdomen, like twists and full Navasana (Boat Pose). "Practice standing poses like Vrksasana (Tree Pose), which stabilizes the psoas and lumbar spine," says Dr. Kuperman. Even if you are drawn to a stronger practice, nice and easy is what you need now."
2. DIET - To facilitate healing of the hernia opening one has to take as much pressure off the opening as possible. This means reducing the volume of intestinal contents using various means, such as COLON CLEANSING, FASTING, INTRAVASCULAR (INTESTINAL) FAT REDUCTION, INTESTINE CONDITIONING SUPPLEMENTS. Protein, massive vitamin C, etc has also been used to facilitate muscle building.
3. WEARING A TRUSS
- BeiYin and Boyd both were successful supporting the bulge with pressure
from a TRUSS belt ot truss briefs. Truss benefits are controversial among
doctors that say it may make things worse. http://www.alphabrace.com/HerniaAids.html
4. ENERGY WORK - Consider supplementing your healing program with the various forms of ENERGY HEALING, such as Yoga, Stress Reduction, Meditation, EFT, Body Talk, Prayer, etc. There is solid evidence that the body can be affected positively and healing accelerated by improving the mental/emotional state of the body. My favorite is Guided Mindfulness Meditation (Audio CD) by Jon Kabat-Zinn
