Ayurvedic Treatment of Hernia with Herbal Remedies

Abstract

A hernia is a medical condition that is characterized by the occurrence of a soft lump or bulge, usually in the belly or groin area. In people suffering from a hernia, the tissue of the affected body part pushes through the wall of muscle in which it is normally contained. A hernia requires timely medical attention so that it does not lead to life-threatening complications. Planet Ayurveda herbal manufacturing company offers some beneficial herbal products for managing different types of hernias.

Hernia

Hernia: Overview

A hernia is a condition in which an internal organ of the body or fatty tissue protrudes out of the wall of muscle which holds it in, thereby resulting in the formation of a bulge or a lump. The internal organ ‘herniates’ or pushes through a weak spot in a surrounding muscle or in a connective tissue known as fascia.

Generally, a hernia occurs in the abdominal cavity area – that is, the area between the chest and the hips. In some cases, a hernia may also occur in the upper thigh area or the groin area. A hernia can cause pain when the affected individual lifts something heavy, bends over, or coughs. In some cases, the bulge indicative of the occurrence of hernia can subside when the affected person presses on it or lies down. However, in some severe cases, a hernia may require medical treatment.

Hernia: Types

The hernia can be of many types. Three most common types of hernia are:

  1. Umbilical hernia: This type of hernia mostly affects new-born children or women who have undergone several childbirths. In this condition, a part of the small intestine protrudes through a weak spot in the umbilicus (the navel area).
  2. Femoral hernia: This type of hernia usually affects pregnant or obese women. In this condition, the intestine pushes through a weak spot in the inner thigh or groin region and enters the canal which carries the femoral artery from the abdomen into the upper leg.
  3. Inguinal hernia: This type of hernia generally affects men. In this condition, a part of the intestine or the bladder squeezes out of the abdominal wall (lower stomach) and enters into the inguinal canal located in the groin area.

Hernia: Causes

The two main causes of hernia are muscle weakness and strain which can occur due to any of the following reasons:

  • Congenital condition (Present at the time of birth)
  • Premature birth or low birth weight
  • Family history of hernias
  • Damage resulting from a past surgical procedure or injury
  • Aging
  • Strenuous exercise
  • Lifting heavy objects/weights
  • Chronic cough
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD)
  • Pregnancy
  • Obesity
  • Chronic constipation (leading to excessive strain during a bowel movement)
  • Diarrhea
  • Excess fluid in the abdomen (Ascites)
  • Cystic fibrosis.

Hernia: Symptoms

Some of the most common symptoms of a hernia are:

  • Bulge or lump at the affected site
  • Dull and lingering pain at the site of the bulge
  • A sense of discomfort related to the bulge
  • Swelling in the groin area
  • Increase in the bulge size over time
  • Chest pain
  • Heartburn
  • Fever
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • A feeling of bowel obstruction
  • Difficulty in swallowing
  • Indigestion or other digestive problems

Hernia: Treatment

A hernia is usually a harmless condition, but it does not resolve on its own. The treatment of hernia typically involves surgery, for the prevention of potential complications due to the condition. Planet Ayurveda offers herbal products for managing Umbilical hernia (Hernia U Pack) as well as femoral hernia and inguinal hernia (Hernia I/F Care Pack) in a natural manner.
