If you’re self healing an inguinal hernia, Inevitably along the path, you’re going to have peaks where everything is going great, and valleys where you feel like you just want to give up and get surgery. It’s up and down just like the seasons of the year, or the tides. If you look at anything in the world that’s going on, everything runs in cycles. If you saw things on a chart, it would be up and down, up and down.
It reminds me of a tide chart. If you look at a tide chart, every single day of the year there’s high tide which goes to low tide usually a few times a day.
If you look at financial charts like the one below, nothing happens in a straight line. If a stock’s going up, it doesn’t go up in a straight line. It shows small peaks and valleys on the way up or on the way down.
I have those peaks and valleys in every aspect of my life. When I’m in that trough and when things are down, that’s when I do the work in order to start getting it to make that turn and come back up. It’s in the winter season, that’s where the work happens. Then I can start making my way way back up to the top. When I get to the top, that’s when I’m enjoying the benefits of all the work that I put in in the trough.
I looked at my hernia the same way. I put all the work in when I was down and when I was feeling the worst. When I was feeling like I just wanted to give up and get the surgery is when I would really have to focus and really concentrate on the end goal, which is self healing my hernia.
The hardest work comes in at the bottom and when you’re feeling your worst.
So if you’re at that point right now, I get what you’re feeling because I’ve been there…….a lot. It’s been a constant up and down battle. Now I feel like I’m almost at the peak. I’m about 98% of the way there. I haven’t felt my hernia at all in a long time. No lump, no pressure, nothing. I was getting a weird feeling when I was in a forward sitting position for a while, but I haven’t felt that in a few months. So things are good.
I’ve always envisioned my overall health like the stock chart above. Over the long term, It’s a constant upward trend, but there’s been crashes along the way where the chart dips and goes, but the overall trend is up. That’s what I want my health to look like. It’s not going to be a straight line, there’s going to be peaks and valleys, but I want the overall trend to keep going up.
I feel like that’s exactly what’s been happening for me because now I’m 45 years old. I feel better now than I did in my twenties and thirties. This is probably the best that I’ve ever felt in my life since I was 17 years old. A huge part of the reason why my health has been so good is because I’ve been working through so many problems that have come up in the time that I’ve been self healing my hernia. The hernia was a huge set back to my health, but I used all the knowledge that I’ve gained from working through the problem to keep the overall trend going up.
I’m not saying that everyone’s going to be able to do this and avoid surgery. Self healing a hernia is not for everyone. There are some people and some situations where surgery is the best option. You have to be the one to weigh those options for yourself. I’m not here to tell you that you shouldn’t get surgery and that self healing a hernia is the only way. It’s the only way for me, but it doesn’t have to be the only way for you.
But if you do decide that the natural cure is for you, then be ready for the long haul. Be ready for those peaks and valleys and take them as they come. The valleys are the time when the work gets done, and when you can look back and see all the work that you’ve done and feel the benefits of that work, that’s when you know that what you’re doing is paying off.
