Guided Imagery for Hiatal Hernia Surgery

29 Dec

This exuberant email is from someone who had surgery for a hiatal hernia twelve years ago. She was told she’d be back for more repair after five years, but she hasn’t, and she gives imagery some of the credit…

THIS is a huge THANK YOU note for Belleruth and Health Journeys.  It was 12 years ago (or will be--tomorrow ) that I had major surgery for a severe hiatal hernia-- Fortunately (the surgery) was postponed for three weeks --because of a chest cold I had -Therefore I was able to listen to The Surgery affirmation & visualization tapes so much longer--Halleliu!
My doctor --PROMISED me I would be back in five years for a total re-do & if not that, a repair of sorts, for sure.
WELL--as I said, it will be 12 HEALTHY years tomorrow, with minimal complaints --perhaps three times a year I have minor indigestion, where one or two Tums are sufficient (to take it away--)
THANKS BELLERUTH and HJ ---I'm so appreciative of your very real assistance in my total rehab!
[Ed. Note: Thank you, Doris.  I'm not sure how much credit belongs to us, but we're all delighted with your results, and wish you continued health, strength, joy and enjoyment! ]
