THANKS FOR THE INFO - STILL TOO VAGUE THOUGH.
>> Thanks for telling us your story and I am glad you have found what works
for you. I hope that someday we will all find what works for us as well. >I wrote just about UNIVERSAL(!) methods - suitable for everyone with any
disease. So I can't say that they work just for me. I know a lot of people which had various diseases and used the same methods with success. >I'm more than sure they will work for you too.I haven't mentioned about any certain or special method yet!
I USED THE PHRASE " GLAD YOU FOUND WHAT WORKS FOR YOU" - I SAID THAT BECAUSE OF THE FOLLOWING STATMENT YOU MADE:
"Thus I had to find my own way. I'm glad I've found it. My own program is simple and complex simultaneously."
I hope I don't come across as being totally illerate about these things but I really would like to more about them. From what I do know - I don't see anything here that would necessarily be of harm - it is my opinion that there has got to be a happy medium between conventional medicine as we know it and the natural/organic alternative treatments.
>What "conventional medicine" does mean for an adhesion sufferer? New
pharmaceutical remedies? Yes, just so.
NO - CONVENTIONAL MEDICINE DOES NOT NECESSARILY MEAN NEW PHARMACEUTICAL REMEDIES FOR ADHESIONS SUFFERERS. PHYSICAL THERAPY, LOW RESIDUE DIET, RESTORING DAILY BOWEL FUNCTION ECT.. ARE NON-PHARMACEUTICAL INTERVENTIONS THAT CAN HELP AS WELL.
>I have said that every adhesion sufferer has >a liver failure or liver
incompetence(insufficiency) at least. >So why to poison ourselves if our livers are in really bad condition?
WHERE ARE YOU GETTING YOUR DATA FOR THIS STATEMENT? THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO RESEARCH WHATSOEVER THAT SUPPORTS THIS.
>As for laparoscopy - I preferred slow and stable forward movement to
backward one. Moreover preventive adhesion removal doesn't remove the reasons of adhesions.
I CAN CERTAINLY UNDERSTAND NOT AGREEING TO HAVING MORE SURGERY AS IT IS A VICIOUS CYCLE OF PAIN, SURGERY, TEMPORARY (IF ANY) REPRIEVE OF SYMPTOMS, AND PAIN. AT FIRST FORMATION - ADHESIONS (IN VARYING DEGREES) ARE VERY STRONG BANDS OF SCAR TISSUE BUT AS TIME PASSES - THE BANDS GET SOFTER, THINNER AND MORE PLIABLE. SO TIME RATHER THAN SURGERY SEEMS TO BE THE BETTER OPTION UNTIL THE FORMATION OF ADHESIONS CAN BE PREVENTED OR THE PATIENT HAS TOTALLY OBSTRUCTED AND CANNOT BE RESOLVED WITH NON-SURGICAL METHODS.
So I found that I didn't need "happy medium between conventional medicine as
we know it and the tural/organic alternative treatments" and thought just
about health. In a couple of months I got my first reliable results
>and then I framed a plan of arrangements for further recovering and
>Now I just carry out that plan and improve in health every month.
CONVENTIONAL MEDICINE ALONG WITH ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE BOTH ADVOCATE MAINTANING GOOD HEALTH - IT IS BETTER TO PREVENT ILLNESS THAN TO TREAT IT. HOWEVER CONVENTIONAL MEDICINE AS WELL AS ALTERNATIVE TREATMENT ENCOURAGE MANY OF THE THINGS ON YOUR LIST SUCH AS REST, SLEEP, HEALTHY DIET WITH SUPPLIMENTS INCLUDING ANTIOXIDENTS, REDUCING STRESS LEVELS (THROUGH DEEP BREATHING, RELAXATION, PRAYER, BIO-FEEDBACK ETC) USING MOIST HEAT TO HELP RELIEVE PAIN AND INCREASE CIRCULATION, AND MAINTAINING A POSITIVE ATTITUDE (ONCE A PERSON LOSES ALL HOPE - ITS ALL OVER FOR THEM).
You wrote:>>>These are names of most important things (basic topics):

>Exactly so. It's the clue topic. If a man doesn't recognize it the below
points are absolutely useless. The more severe disease is the more work a man has to do to overcome it. If a man is ill it's a sign that's something wrong inside his mind. The first work is to rebuild own internal kernel. It means - to rebuild own personality structure. It's not easy but necessary for real curing.
ALTHOUGH SOME ILLNESSES CAN BE TRIGGERED BY A PERSON'S BEHAVIOR (IE LUNG CANCER - SMOKING) THERE IS NO RESEARCH THAT SUPPORTS THE THEORY THAT ALL PHYSICAL ILLNESSES ARE A RESULT OF A PERSON'S PERSONALITY.
>>>1. Sleep, sufficient rest and normal day schedule

>Yes, it's well-known the best sleep is from 10:00 PM till 6:00 AM.

talking about cleansing enemas/laxitaves? >

THIS IS STILL VAGUE TO ME - CAN YOU BE MORE SPECIFIC AS TO WHAT YOU ARE REFERRING TO AS "DIRTY PLACES" AND WHAT NATURAL METHODS YOU USE TO CLEANSE THEM?
>> 5. Nutrition

don't take a "garbage" like cola, alcohol, coffee, tea, canned>food, cakes, ice-creams, candies, chocolate, yeast bread, pizzas, macaronis,>souses, sauces, sandwiches, delicatessen, light-butter, etc.
WHAT ARE SOME OF THE FOODS THAT YOU DO EAT? HOW MUCH WATER DO YOU DRINK IN A 24 HOUR PERIOD?
>> 6. Thermo-procedures and cold water affusion >> I don't know what you are
talking about here - thermo meaning heat >> procedures? >
>Yes, you're right. Hot-water bathes, sauna or vapour-bath.

>Water is as cold as possible and:

>You can also use snow for point 2.
>Hope you know effect of above procedures.
I KNOW THE EFFECT OF MOIST HEAT. COLD APPLIED IMMEDIATELY AFTER AN INJURY HELPS WITH PAIN AND SWELLING BUT WHAT IS THE EFFECT OF COLD WATER AFFUSION?
>> 7. Auto-massage
>> What areas of the body do you massage - are you using any special techniques?
>Any place. :)>But if seriously about an adhesion sufferer - abdomen area of
course.>The best is - when you don't use hands for it. Usual Uddiyana Bandha - I>don't know the better exercise for that area. > >As for acupuncture and acupressure, I know about theirs effect but I

AGAIN - STILL VAGUE - WHICH HERBS DO YOU TAKE ON A REGULAR BASIS?

MEDICAL TREATMENTS FOR BOWEL OBSTRUCTION ARE AT THE VERY LEAST - HARSH IF NOT DOWN RIGHT TORTURE. I TOO HAVE HAD TO ENDURE THE NG TUBE THROUGH THE NOSE NO LESS THAN 3 TIMES. BUT SADLY IT WAS THE LESSER OF 2 EVILS - IT WAS EITHER THE TUBE OR CONTINOUS VOMITING OF GASTIC CONTENTS BECAUSE OF THE OBSTRUCTION PREVENTING FLUIDS TO FLOW THROUGH THE GI SYSTEM NORMALLY. SURGERY WAS THE LAST THING I WANTED BUT I DIDN'T WANT TO DIE FROM GANGRENE OF THE BOWEL EITHER - SO AGAIN - I CHOSE THE LESSER OF THE TWO EVILS - SURGERY. YES - THE ADHESIONS ARE BACK AND AT TIMES I SUFFER FROM WHAT I WOULD DESCRIBE AS SUICIDAL LEVELS OF PAIN. I DON'T LIKE HAVING TO TAKE MEDICINE - BUT I DON'T WANT TO LIVE WITH THAT LEVEL OF PAIN EITHER - SO BESIDES THE NON-PHARMACEUTICAL METHODS OF PAIN RELIEF I IMPLEMENT - I ALSO WILL TAKE A MEDICATION TO GET THE PAIN BACK DOWN TO A MORE TOLERABLE LEVEL.
OBVIOUSLY THE MORE HEALTHY YOU ARE - THE STRONGER YOUR BODY WILL BE - AND YOU WILL BE MORE ABLE TO FIGHT OFF OR DEAL WITH HEALTH PROBLEMS. WHICH IS THE POINT I THINK YOU ARE TRYING TO MAKE. MOST OF THE STEPS YOU LIST ARE GOOD FOR EVERYBODY AND GOOD FOR OUR HEALTH STATE. I, HOWEVER, WANT TO KNOW FROM OTHERS WHO ARE DEALING WITH THE SAME TYPE HEALTH PROBLEMS I AM, WHAT SPECIFICALLY HAVE THEY TRIED FOR THIS AND WHAT THEY HAVE FOUND THAT WORKS. WHAT WORKS FOR ONE PERSON MAY OR MAY NOT WORK FOR ANOTHER. THEREFORE I KEEP TRYING DIFFERENT THINGS AND IF IT HELPS - GREAT - IF NOT - I KEEP LOOKING.
AGAIN - I AM GLAD THAT THE STEPS YOU HAVE IMPLEMENTED HAVE WORKED FOR YOU - BUT FOR ME AND SOME OF THE OTHERS HERE - THEY ARE JUST NOT ENOUGH - AND I WILL CONTINUE MY SEARCH FOR ADDITIONAL WAYS TO HELP ME BE AS WELL AND PAIN-FREE AS I CAN BE - SO THAT I CAN HAVE A BETTER QUALITY OF LIFE THAN I HAVE HAD IN THE PAST.
