Ayurvedic Medicine

Recurrent hernia is seen due to continuous coughing, excessive weight or drastic loss of weight and in strain during constipation. The strain in the abdomen increases the pressure, to initiate a small bulge leading to hernia. If it is small, it can be managed with medicines without surgery. But if the size is getting bigger, it must be again corrected by surgery.

Ayurvedic medicines like Gandharvahastadi kvath - 15ml with 60ml of warm water before food twice daily and Hingutriguna lehyam - 1tsp at bed time after food can be taken for a month and reviewed.

Include complex carbohydrates, prunes, raisins, yam, figs, fiber and mung dal. Reduce excess oil, sweet, salt and refined flour. Yogasanas like Paschimottasana, Pavanamuktasana, Supta vajrasana, Trikonasana and Marjaryasana are beneficial. Please take care during cough so that it does not cause hernia in the weakest spot. Try to keep the weight under control. If there is more pain or the size increases more please consult your doctor to avoid complications.

Hello Madam,As your husband is suffering from hernia recurrently, there may be some causative reasons. If he is suffering from long term gastric related problems and doing lots of strenuous activities, and if he was suffering from chronic constipation, there are chances that he gets this kind of weakening of inguinal ligament and causing internal organs to protrude out inside the cavity.So, based on the symptoms and other related problems you may suggest him to undergo with ayurvedic medications. Meanwhile it is also better to go with preventive measures like using inguinal belt that helps to minimize the pressure and can be prevented further hernia related complications like strangulation hernia etc.Yoga is recommended for him, however there is a limitation and accordingly he may practice yoga under strict supervision of yoga teacher or yoga expert.

He may start having the following medicines such as Hernia Package Medicine that contains a combination of medications which he can start having it. However, to understand other problems, it is better to mention, should there be any other complaints.

Particularly in diet, it is better to avoid gas forming food items as these food items may aggravate gas and immense pressure and causes abdominal discomfort and distention of abdomen.
