In my first blog post, I stated I am part of the over the hill group. I meant that to be a positive statement. At this point in my life, I realize that the distractions of youth hinder a steady climb. Now I am distracted by something else, pain, and inflammation. I don’t like that one bit. My pain was no stranger due to a pole vaulting accident I had when I was 17. That forced me to turn my attention, at that tender age, to seeking relief from pain.
I’m not talking relief in terms of drugs or surgical procedures. Compared to a human-made machine, the body can repair itself over time, given the right circumstances. To what extent the body would repair itself other than a cut would heal, I didn’t know at that age. So I turned to the basic idea of building a strong core. But if I can’t put weight on my spine, then what was the alternative.
We lived on a farm, so I got my Dad’s old boots and hung upsidedown in the loft, and this way, there was no weight on the spine when I exercised. So being in pain a lot forced me to look to others to find a solution, and we didn’t have Google in those days. As it turned out, I did get temporary relief over the years, but it sowed the seeds of looking for a permanent fix. So at that time, I gravitated to any information that would lead me down the path to that relief. All I had to do was supply the body with the right healing formula, and the body would repair itself.
A lot of water under the bridge since then and life and living kept me gathering knowledge but no long term solution. The solution in my mind had to be non-invasive, something that would help the body help itself.
Don’t get me wrong. It did not slow me down from having a full athletic life. I was always prepared to turn to some alternative area for a tune-up from time to time when the need arose. I also discovered that not all alternative practices procedures end in relief. Sometimes they make it worse. Oh well, more fuel for tweaking my search for assistance.
I find myself now over the hill, and as quickly as I got up the incline in my youth, I am now having a hard time walking down it. Lol
I also find myself at this time in my life being part of Compumatrix and ready to turn my gathered research into much more. Compumatrix has a way of making you change your mindset and allowing you to throw off the limitations. I look forward to being able to put together a team of qualified alternative medical people. That team can take us to another level of health and healing. That will be important in this age of blockchain and new technology.
I started this blog to cover some other ideas. I will continue those ideas in my next blog as I feel sad for those who also have pain in their older years.
Apart from financial wealth being a good goal to have, health is very much part of my equation of wealth. I suspect most of you will all agree with me on that.
