Can homeopathy cure Hernia?

Hernia treatment with homeopathySome people approach homeopathic physicians for the treatment of hernia. Let us discuss in brief what is hernia before talking about its homeopathic treatment.

Hernia is a condition where there is a protrusion of an organ down the cavity which holds it. Often, it is seen as a bulge beneath the skin on the body, on naked eye examination.

Types of hernia:

Depending on the location and body part involved, hernias can be divided into five different types.

Inguinal hernia (seen in inner part of groin): It is most commonly found in men. The bladder or part of intestine protrudes through the abdominal wall in the inguinal canal in the groin.

Incisional hernia (occurs as a result of a previous surgical incision): In this type of hernia there is always a history of abdominal surgery done in the past. The intestines push through the abdominal wall at the site of previous surgery. Mostly, obese, sedentary and elderly people are affected by this type of hernia. These people have lax abdominal muscles due to lack of abdominal exercises.

Femoral hernia (seen in upper part of the thigh near the groin): This is mostly seen in females.

Umbilical hernia (seen on or near to the umbilicus): Umbilical hernia is mostly seen in newborn babies. Sometimes it is also seen in an obese female with the history of many deliveries.

Hiatal hernia (it is found inside the body on the upper part of the stomach): A hiatus or hiatal hernia is characterized by protrusion of stomach into the diaphragm through the opening in the esophagus.

  • Chronic constipation.
  • Persistent coughing and sneezing in conditions like Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
  • Straining while urination as in prostatic hypertrophy.

Symptoms of hernia: Usually, hernia presents itself in the form of a bulge beneath the skin which increases in size when coughing and disappears or reduces in size when lying down. Hiatal hernia causes the symptoms of heartburn.

Homeopathic treatment for hernia:

It should be noted that hernia is not a medical condition. It is a surgical problem which can be fixed by a surgeon by performing herniorrhaphy (surgical repair of hernia) on the patient.
Because of the nature of the disease condition, neither conventional medicines nor homeopathic medicines are suggested for hernia, as they have no role in the treatment of hernia. No medicine can cure hernia. Homeopathy has no treatment for hernia.

    I am 65 years old. I have Inguinal hernia in right side for the past 40 years or so. Initially the size was very small, almost invisible in open. But, now it has become big enough, almost to the size of a tennis ball, projecting into the bladder. I feel pain once in a while. However, I want to cure it without surgery. Will it be possible to cure it through homeopathy treatment? If so, please advise as to what to do. Thank you.
