Injuries are no fun, they can stop your training, halt your weight loss, negatively affect your self-image, the list goes on. The good news is the human body is resilient, and in the vast majority of cases, you can bounce back from most injuries without the need for medical intervention, surgery, or other invasive procedures. Today I’m providing you with five ways/things to start you down the road to recovery no matter the injury. Quick disclaimer, if you’re bleeding out of your eyeballs or vomiting blood and speaking in tounges, please go to a doctor and or exorcist. These are meant to help you heal from nonemergency injuries, please don’t die. The first thing on the list is simply getting your physical health in order if your overweight and bombarding your system with toxins your body is spending its energy keeping you alive and there is none left over for healing. It gets pushed down the proverbial to-do list. So if you get injured and you look in the mirror and don’t like what you see, you may have body dysmorphia, or you could stand to lose a couple of pounds. Either way, get your physical health in order, and your body will surprise you with how quickly you can heal. I go into more detail Here. On a side note if you do have body dysmorphia, please get help, its dangerous and I do want you to be happy and healthy.
The second thing is a little more extreme and frankly not for everyone. I will say if you have the mental fortitude for it, it not only speeds up healing it also boosts immune function, helps significantly with fat loss and improves the health of your arteries. Its called the Wim Hoff method and involves a breathing exercise which I think feels great and definitely can induce an altered state of consciousness if that’s your thing. Followed by cold exposure, to start with its a little rough but you ease yourself in by just finishing your showers with cold water, submerging your hands in a bowl of ice water, then building up to full cold showers, ice baths, my personal favorite running shirtless in the freezing rain. You get the picture, you can get as crazy as you want to with it and it personally helped me lose over forty pounds of body fat and become the most resilient physically and mentally I have ever been. Now I would love to tell you outright how to do it but I don’t want to get sued, plus he goes into much more detail in his book. This Here is the book with all of the info in it along with some exciting stories about Wim himself. If you’re shaking your head and shivering already, don’t fret I have something else that produces a comparable effect in the short term.
That leads me on to the third thing, Resinall K it is a modernized version of an ancient Chinese herbal concoction used for rapid injury healing developed through their long history of martial arts, if you want to learn more This is the book I got it from. The original version of Resinall K I could only find on a shady website that I did not trust, luckily there is a modern version here in California that comes in a little dropper. I will warn you it is alcohol based and you put it under your tongue so prepare to cry for about 3 minutes while you wait for it to stop burning. But oh man is it worth it, it’s a hard sensation to describe, it feels like you have this warm energy rushing through your body and burning out blockages (Such as injuries). Its very pleasant and will speed up recovery time significantly. It can also be instrumental in finally getting over any old wounds. Now I wouldn’t recommend Resinall K if you are younger, it is alcohol based, and while I’m reasonably certain it is legal, I would still be careful. The initial application also hurts like a mother fucker. Overall it’s a useful tool, take care not to use it for more than a week straight, you might overtax your system. It is available Here
Onto the fourth thing, sadly no more magical herb to be had here just good old mediation with a few caveats. Now meditation has so many benefits and has been recommended and used for thousands of years. You know why? Because it fuckan works. It helps with emotional regulation, happiness, makes you smarter, enables you to connect with a higher power (Even if you don’t believe in one), the list goes on and on. I will be putting out a complete guide to effective mediation and linking it here at a later point, for now here is the quick version. Get comfortable in a quiet place, focus on bringing air in and out of your lungs filling the oxygen rush through your body, then bring in energy from all around you, connecting you to everything else, ask some higher power, it could be nature, it could be god, it could be the flying spaghetti monster, whomever. Connect with some higher power, feel the energy and connection flowing between you and everything else, feel your body going into a state of homeostasis. You can stay here for as long as you like, then when you finished reverse the steps and say thank you to whatever higher power you chose, and you’re done. Mediation complete. I know it sounds like some voodoo bullshit I don’t care, it will help you in huge ways
Finally visualization/placebo this is one of the least understood and most powerful methods I know of, this is responsible for life-threatening cancer just disappearing. Fake knee surgeries working better than the real ones, sugar pills healing people, leches and bleeding and a thousand other medical practices going back to the beginning of humankind. The root of all of these things is the human body’s ability to heal itself. Your boy in most cases can heal, your belief that you cant is what is holding yourself back. A book I recently found called Quantum healing goes into detail, you can buy it Here. I’m going, to be honest with you, this one is new to me, and I don’t fully understand how to use it yet. When I do I will put out a full guide for it. Until then here is what I do know, our bodies manifest what we believe if we repeatedly run through a thought pattern such as visualizing a tumor being smothered by snowflakes then over time our bodies will manifest this to realign your beliefs with reality. If your particularly astute you might realize this can be applied to your whole life, not just healing, which is very true and something I am currently exploring. Best of luck with this one, if you happen to figure anything interesting out feel free to shoot me an email or a message on facebook @Becomeaprimalman.
That’s all the resources i have for today, go out and try things, learn what works best for you. I believe in you!
Wishing you the best of luck on your journey -Emmit
