Arg. I can see how that would easily hinder your ability to meditate! Hope it goes as well as it can!

Re: A Study on Meditation - good stuff


Yes, Firle, tried tapping, screaming, yelling and gasping.. none worked any better than the any other..
However we abandoned the doctors, after the spoke complete and utter rubbish about the causes of stones, the make up of them,, and the possibility of anything other than them fixing it. They charged me about $5000, for the ER visit, and the CAT scan, with a doctor there, and an urologist who possibly earns the title of most useless waste of space on earth. The crap he spouted and the ham handed brute force he used to see it it hurt made me truly sick.

Once I managed to get my brain focussed again, I trotted off the real medics, the herbalists, and now feel great, still sore, but no longer in agony, In the unlikely chance of another stone, I will know what to do.

The bill from the hospital for the surgery they expect to do is $6755.. What is with these prices, con men, the lot of them.

I went to the ER because I had no idea what I had done to myself - the CAT scan, though expensive, told me the problem - unfortunately I hurt too much to take notice, and accepted their poisons for a couple of days - that stuff fries your brain.

No happily on five herbs and one compound - no pain, no crippling gripes, no mind numbness, and recovering slowly.



TM, the level of pain in that problem literally stopped me thinking straight. Total panic - I have never felt anything so envelopingly agonising. I do not wish to have such experience again, so my diet changed, immediately, in content and quantity.


Queeny, that is an understatement. Now fortunately receding.

Muladzh, I'm glad you're feeling better. They do say that kidney stones cause some of the worst pain on this world - I hope I'll never experience it.

It's very hard to find a caring doctor. Not sure I have managed that feat.

Re: A Study on Meditation - good stuff


Muladzh, I am SO glad that you got some relief!! I don't think I've ever had a kidney stone, but watching DH when he has them, I doubt I could handle the pain!

I guess I should feel lucky that we have some pretty decent docs. With the pain I've been dealing with my foot/ankle, though, my GP and the orthopedic surgeon both pretty much told me they couldn't do anything or prescribe anything to help me. [sign in to see URL] my last visit with my pain doc, I talked to him about it. The nurse called and got the report of my MRI, he read it and explained what each thing they found was, and WHERE it was, then we talked about the fact that, since there was really nothing, even in combination that could be the culprit, then it was most likely a nerve issue, but since it was in the foot, it was virtually impossible to pin-point which nerve, or where the initial problem is. Rather than tell me there was nothing he could suggest, he prescribed a stronger topical pain medication from the one the ortho had prescribed for me. It seems to help somewhat, so that's a good thing.

This cold, wet weather is not helping issues, either but I refuse to stop! I plan on taking it easy tomorrow/today, but Monday will be another full day! Gotta keep going while I can!!! emoticon

Re: A Study on Meditation - good stuff


Haven't passed the brick yet, but the herbs are doing a much better job than the toxic mess the medic touted on me. Interestingly, I have been pushing out gall stones, that I did not know I had - the herbs seem to be targeting things I did not know about, which is great, but the discomfort would have been nicer, in warm weather..

Mom had a huge kidney [sign in to see URL] years ago. The pain hit her so hard one night, she passed out, doing more damage, by smacking her head on the bathtub!
Now she watches what she eats and never lets them get that bad!

Re: A Study on Meditation - good stuff


if I can get my body cleaned out, which is a slow process, I can avoid making stones - they are, for the most part, calcium oxalate, which can be controlled easily by diet. The other minerals that make up the other ingredients do not stick together without the calcium oxalate.

Saijen, the pain compound I am using is Curcumin, totally herbal, and works better than any pain killer I have ever tried. It works against inflammation, neuralgia, trauma pain, and headaches - give it a try. it works for me.

Re: A Study on Meditation - good stuff


Muladzh, I just did a very quick and definitely not thorough, check on Curcumin. For maybe pain relief for my dad, and found this [sign in to see URL] found the parts in bold particularly interesting, considering why you are taking it.


What are the risks of taking turmeric?

    Side effects. Turmeric is generally safe. It can cause nausea and diarrhea, especially in high doses or after long-term use. It might also pose a risk of ulcers in high doses. As a topical treatment, it can cause skin irritation. Caution is advised when turmeric is taken by people known to have gallstones; consult your health care provider first.
    Risks. Pregnant women should not use turmeric supplements. Talk to a doctor before using turmeric supplements regularly if you have any medical conditions, like gallbladder or kidney disease, bleeding disorders, diabetes, or immunity problems. Since turmeric can potentially increase bleeding, stop taking it at least two weeks before any surgery.
    Interactions. If you take any medicines regularly, talk to your doctor before you start using turmeric supplements. They could interact with medicines like aspirin, NSAID painkillers, statins, diabetes drugs, blood pressure medicines, and blood thinners. They might also interact with supplements that decrease clotting, like ginkgo, ginseng, and garlic.

Re: A Study on Meditation - good stuff


Research on turmeric is inconclusive - it is possible to find pro and con advice all over the internet. Turmeric in its unrefined condition is not advised for gall stones, and bleeding problems. Curcumin, a refined extract of turmeric has less problems.

I am taking it because of the very real health dangers to me, from opiate derivative pain medication - that does me immediate damage, that makes the situation far worse.

Whatever the truth is about Curcumin, or even turmeric, it is the only option I have. Certainly I would recommend anyone using a doctor, speak with them before trying any herbal remedy.
