The following are excerpts from Volume III:
The theme of THE HUMAN MACHINE … A Trouble Shooter’s Manual Volume III is:
The Hiatal Hernia Syndrome. This is a tear or a stretch of the natural hiatus or hole or opening in the diaphragm designed to let the esophagus through. The herniated or stretched tissue around the opening allows the stomach to sneak up into the chest cavity where it does not belong resulting in the dysfunction of the stomach, which leads to the putrification of the stomach contents, which can manifest as one or all of the symptoms listed below.
The ultimate result of this structural and/or functional damage is “degeneration” which we recognize, over time, as emotional and physical aches and pains.
Stress Indigestion Gas Bloating Heart Burn (Reflux) Celiac Heart Palpitations Mood Swings Restricted Breathing Bad Breath Depression Painful Joints
Fibromyalgia Muscle Cramps Sciatic Pains Irritable Bowel Leaky Gut Systemic Candida Chronic Bladder Infections Vaginal Yeast Infections Prostate Inflammation Tumors and Growths … And many more.
My attempt with this series is to show that this “Human Machine” that we drive around in is designed to “run” relatively trouble free. It’s designed to adjust itself to its environment and to fix itself if when it gets damaged along the way … that is if we don’t sabotage it first.
I have to emphasize that the body is designed to do all these maneuvers. But if some of the parts become distorted or damaged along the way, or if the fuel supply is inadequate or tainted, this Human Machine will be thrown out of tolerance range, or “ease of function” and a state of “dis – ease ” will ensue with its corresponding “check engine light” symptom profiles. (See above list.)
Western Allopathic medicine has redefined the term, “dis – ease”. Instead of a “condition” of dis – ease that can be changed with behavior and/or nutrition, we now refer to an “entity ” called “disease” that we possess, and must attack with drugs and surgery.
This book (Volume III) talks more about the structural distortions in the digestive mechanism itself, specifically the stomach, that can result in malfunction symptoms (aches and pains), rather than the discomforts caused by the disturbances in the functional aspect of the chemistry of the fuel supply (malnutrition) that I discuss in Volume II.
MOTOR HOME MODEL
To illustrate this point, let’s look for example, at a motor home. The gas tank supplies the engine with fuel so that the vehicle can move from one place to another.
But the air conditioner and the compressor motor and the generator motor also draw gasoline from the same main tank.
When the gas gauge shows 1/4 tank, most modern motor homes are designed to shut off the generator or the air conditioner or the compressor to conserve enough fuel to get the vehicle to a gas station to refuel. A similar energy or fuel supply condition exists in the human vehicle (body) with respect to organs and muscles. Without the engine, the motor home is somewhat worthless for moving you down the highway. Consequently, when the fuel supply runs low, the engine assumes priority over all the other accessories.
In your body, without the organ, you die. As with the engine in the motor home, the organ gets first dibs on the energy available in the “circuit.”
For example, when we experience “low liver energy,” the muscles on the same energy circuit are considered expendable by the body with respect to the liver, a vital organ, and are “shut down” until more energy is available.
If you try to use the muscle that has been “shut down,” you are at risk of physically damaging the muscle. Sprains, strains, torn muscles, and hernias are examples of attempting to “push” a muscle past its energy capacity in the moment.
Volume III describes behaviors that will assist the reduction of the hernia syndrome. You may need the assistance of a medical practitioner skilled in this procedure to initially get the stomach out of the hole, back down into the abdominal cavity where it belongs. Then there are exercises designed to keep the stomach down, which will allow the diaphragm to heal. Keep in mind that the hernia syndrome is the result of a genetically weak liver circuit.
