For those who are new to my blog, I invite you to read “How my Oska Pulse has improved my life”. Click here for more information about my abdominal saga to understand what I am dealing with.
Before I begin I want to disclose that while I originally received my Oska Pulse to review from Chronic Illness Bloggers, my thoughts and opinions are my own and have not and never will be influenced by the product’s company. All posts that I have written about this product since the original were not solicited and were written because I wanted to share my experience and improvements. As always my posts are not to be mistaken for medical advice. I am only sharing my opinions and experience.
Last year one doctor after another told me that there was nothing they could do about my abdominal pain that is caused by adhesions due to endometriosis and surgical scarring. Out of all of my conditions, this was the hardest to accept as nothing decreased my discomfort.
Medical marijuana has been successful in improving my symptoms from psoriatic arthritis and fibromyalgia, but would only reduce my nausea in regards to my abdominal issues. After experiencing a brief time of relief from my abdominal pain it returned with a vengeance a couple of weeks ago.
Besides physical discomfort, I struggled emotionally over not knowing how long it would be until I would catch another break. To my surprise, a glimmer of hope presented itself last Friday.

I awoke Friday morning with a bloated belly, an elevated pain level, and a message from Julie Ryan. While we were chatting she shared some information about her experience with Oska Pulse and the remarkable results she experienced while healing from her last endo related surgery.
Hearing about her successful recovery my heart filled with joy. Because I have had eight abdominal surgeries, surgeons won’t touch me unless I am presenting life ending symptoms, so surgery will never be an option for me. If my Oska Pulse could breakdown adhesions without ripping them from my sidewall or internal organs, my physical life would greatly improve.
After our conversation, I began treating my belly with my Oska Pulse. I treated it for six hours on Friday. The next morning I was no longer bloated or nauseated. On Saturday I treated my tummy for another six hours.
I wasn’t expecting to see significant results quickly and was astonished when I did. That evening I noticed that my outer abdominal muscles were tender and sore when touched. You may be thinking “How is that good news?” But if you knew how my abdominal pain cycle worked you would know that this was outstanding news.
You see, my adhesions typically form from sidewalls and then attach themselves to my bowels, bladder, and ribcage. They pull and twist whatever it is that they have a hold of until they rip away. When they rip from my sidewall the pain is so intense that it literally takes my breath away.
Adhesions make sitting upright or standing straight difficult and painful whether they are ripping or not, but doing anything while they are ripping away from my sidewall is impossible. After an intense ripping, I experience what I like to call the “healing phase”. During this phase my abdominal muscles are sore, sort of like after surgery pain, and sometimes the internal organ that was being attacked also hurts. The upside is that I would be blessed with a reprieve from the unbearable ripping pain. That evening it was only my external abdominal muscles that hurt!
I have been living with abdominal pain caused by adhesions since 2004, I know the cycle of formation, chaos, ripping, and healing extremely well. The pain that I had on Saturday was what I normally experience several days after a ripping. This signals that something good is happening.
I have no way to tell how many adhesions I have or how many have been broken apart because they don’t show up in medical tests. What I do have is the experience of thirteen years of living with these dreaded internal webs.
By Sunday I could feel specific areas that were experiencing pulling and began placing my Oska Pulse on them. I was also able to eat without severe bloating. In addition, I ate a bunch of different foods that I had fully expected to give me diarrhea since up until Saturday everything I ate went right through me.
I was thrilled to not spend the evening on the toilet and even more ecstatic when I experienced a normal bowel movement the next morning and it has continued for three days! I can’t tell you how long it has been since this has happened. Like I said something good is happening inside of my belly. I can’t wait to see how long I will be blessed with normal bowel movements and zero digestive issues.
In addition to helping with my abdominal pain, my Oska Pulse has also proven to be an effective treatment in regards to the permanent nerve damage between my pelvis and left leg caused by a surgeon who severed nerves while removing my cervix in 2008.
Three of the top neurologists in Arizona (where I was living at the time) all said that the set of nerves that were damaged were ones that aren’t typically nicked or severed. They also agreed that there was nothing that could be done. They tried different medications to reduce my nerve pain, but instead, they increased my pain.
In 2013 I began treating all of my conditions including this one with medical marijuana. For the most part, an Indica strain reduces or eliminates most of my nerve pain. However, sometimes the pain from the source of the damage skyrockets to a level that makes me wish I could saw off my leg. When this happens I usually use a Sativa strain of medical marijuana.
I avoid using Sativa as much as possible because while it reduces my deep internal nerve pain it also makes my mind race. Like my issues with adhesions, I felt like there was no hope.
After experiencing a remarkable difference with my abdominal pain, I decided to try treating the area of my nerve damage with my Oska Pulse. After just an hour on Saturday night, the pain subsided.
The reason I am starting this series is to document how and if Oska Pulse is able to improve my conditions that my doctors have given up on. My hope is that it will either prevent new adhesions from forming or break them down if they do.
I am also curious to see if it will go beyond temporarily relieving extreme nerve pain and eventually repair the internal site of damage. In addition, I have also begun treating my sacrum and have been impressed by the relief I have been experiencing. I invite you to join me on this journey.
My intent is to share my progress and provide more information about how this product works.
If you are also using Oska Pulse as part of your treatment I would love to hear what symptoms and conditions it has helped with.
