"The first week I started the regime the change was amazing. My energy returned, my skin glowed, the aches and pains and heat (inflammation) in my joints went away (almost all), the gastric reflux stopped. People commented on the change in me. I was amazed at how different and positive I felt. So thank you so much." Susie, Plymouth

"I can't speak highly enough of that man, he changed my life". Doreen, Worcester 

 

Hernia 

According to research, it is four times more dangerous to have a hernia operation than to go without one if you are over 65. add to that the fact the majority of hernia repairs are poorly done and need to be repeated in a quarter of cases, and it becomes obvious that the treatment must be chosen with great care and considerable consideration.

It is perhaps interesting to note that the cause of hernias is a weakened abdominal muscle wall as well as bowel problems resulting in increased pressure from within, especially when straining or blowing against a closed glottis - the Valsalva manoeuvre. A weakened abdominal wall may be the consequence of injury, surgery or an imbalance in the tension of the muscle wall associated organ. An example is an abdominal hernia as a result of weakness of the stomach muscles which are associated with the small intestine. Any inflammation of he small such as an infection, could result in an imbalance and weakness through which the intestine may protrude.

Other causes of gut inflammation and muscle weakness include food allergy/intolerance, pathogenic organisms (bacteria, viruses, fungus/Candida and parasites), toxins such as metals (arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury etc), chemicals (pesticides, herbicides, preservatives etc), radiation (DECT phones, mobiles and masts, air travel etc), drugs (NSAIDs, steroids etc), and not forgetting malabsorption of essential nutrients such as amino acids, vitamins, minerals and especially fatty acids of EPA and DHA.

Reducing excess weight and paying special attention to strengthening of stomach muscles as well as taking measures not to increase intra-abdominal pressure through straining, coughing, squeezing and lifting weights incorrectly are the first preventive measures to take. These must be followed by measures to encourage proper healing, repair and regeneration of healthy tissue by ensuring adequate amounts of essential nutrients. These include amino acids, vitamins, minerals and especially the omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, as well as probiotics, soluble and insoluble fibre from fruits, vegetables and whole grains, not forgetting adequate amounts of water, a regular daily exercise regime and sunlight, when possible.
