A hernia is a sac formed by the lining of the abdominal cavity (peritoneum). The sac comes through a hole or weak area in the fascia, the strong layer of the abdominal wall that surrounds the muscle.

When there are no symptoms (in other words, when we do not observe anything special in the patient!):

   First of all, we should try to remove the maintaining factors such as cough, constipation, lifting, etc.

   Ask the patient to do exercises that strengthen the abdominal muscles, but only after reducing the hernia into the cavity. Hence the best time is early in the morning before rising from bed.

   If the hernia (inguinal) is right sided, give Lycopodium. If left sided, give Nuxvom. If painful, give Belladonna. If associated with vomiting, give Cocculus. If all medicines fail,i try Plumbum, Syphilnm can be given In case of umbilical hernia in kids, Nux Vom works like magic.

   Ask the patient to use hernia belt while doing any strenuous work, but not always, because, our muscles are basically lazy, they will stop functioning when they get strong external support for 24 hours! Weight reduction is also necessary.
