In case of Hernia too, surgery is often considered the only option by the patients. Homeopathic remedies for Hernia, can effectively treat the condition and that too without any side effects.  homeopathic remedies for hernia

What is Hernia?

In medical terms, the protrusion of an organ or a part of an organ through an abnormal opening in the wall of the cavity that normally contains it is referred to as Hernia. The main cause of Hernia is the weakness of the abdominal muscles. This can either be congenital or acquired. The congenital weakness of abdominal muscles is present since birth and the acquired muscle weakness results from various factors like surgical incisions, repeated pregnancy, excess fat in abdomen, chronic cough, constipation and even excessive weight lifting. Homeopathic medicines, which are sourced from natural substances and are completely safe with zero side effects, are of great help in curing various types of Hernia.

Types of Hernia

Inguinal Hernia: This is the commonest type of Hernia. It can occur in infants or adults and since the swelling is in the groin, the panic button is pressed quite early. In InguinalHernia, a part of abdominal contents, mainly intestines, protrudes through the inguinal region of the abdominal wall. The inguinal region is present in the groin.

Umbilical Hernia: This Hernia is more common in females than males and also in infants. In Umbilical Hernia, the abdominal contents bulge out from the umbilicus or navel of abdomen.

Femoral Hernia: This Hernia is also more common in females and very uncommon in children. In Femoral Hernia, the abdominal contents protrude through the femoral canal present in the upper inner thigh region.

Obstructed/Incarcerated Hernia: In this type of Hernia, the lumen of intestine (colon) gets obstructed, leading to intestinal obstruction.

Strangulated Hernia: In this type of Hernia, the arterial supply of the contents of Hernia stops along with intestinal obstruction. Femoral Hernia is most liable to get strangulated.

Symptoms of Hernia

The main symptom of Hernia is swelling or formation of a lump. In Inguinal Hernia,the swelling appears in the groin.In Femoral Hernia, the swelling appears in the upper inner thigh region and in Umbilical Hernia, the swelling is apparent around the navel. Swelling is often accompanied by discomfort or a dragging type of pain around the swelling. In case of obstructed or strangulated Hernia, abdominal colic, vomiting, distended abdomen and constipation are the main symptoms.

Top Homeopathic Remedies for Hernia

1. Nux Vomica: Top Remedy for all Types of Hernia

Nux Vomica is a natural medicine which is of great help in treating all types of Hernias — be it femoral, inguinal or umbilical. It can be given to patients of Hernia in whom the abdominal muscles have been weakened due to long-standing constipation. The patient complains of a constant urge to pass stool or poop but scanty unsatisfactory stool is passed. Such a patient also usually feels very cold. There’s also an excessive craving for stimulants like alcohol or coffee.  Weakness and soreness in the abdominal muscles are always experienced. For treatment of Umbilical Hernia in infants, Nux Vomica is very beneficial.

2. Calcarea Carbonica: For Hernia in obese people

Calcarea Carbonica is a top medicine for treating Hernia. It is mainly prescribed for obese people with weak abdominal muscles due to excessive fat in the abdomen. Such patients cannot bear tight clothes around the waist. Calcarea Carbonicaalso gives excellent results in treatment of Hernia in children who sweat excessively on the head. The patients requiring this medicine are sensitive to cold air. There is alsoan unusual craving for boiled eggs or chalk or lime.

3. Lycopodium Clavatum: For Hernia with Weak Digestion, Excessive Flatulence

Lycopodium Clavatum is of great help to patients of Hernia who suffer from weak digestion and excessive flatulence in the abdomen. The patients requiring this medicine loveto eat sweets and have a craving for hot food and drinks.

4. Rhus Toxicodendron: For Hernia due to Excessive Weight lifting

Rhus Tox is very beneficial for treatment of all such cases of Hernia where the abdominal muscles become weak due to excessive strain by lifting heavy weights. Rhus Toxicodendron helps the patients by strengthening the abdominal muscles.

5. Silicea: For Hernia with Excessive Perspiration on Feet

Silicea is a medicine of great help for patients of Hernia who experience excessive and offensive perspiration on the feet. The patient always feels very chilly and desires warm clothing. Silicea is also a very helpful remedy for the treatment of Hernia in children who are weak, very obstinate and headstrong.

Other Important Remedies

Lycopodium Clavatum is an excellent Inguinal hernia remedy, specially benefcial for treating Inguinal Hernia of right side. The main symptoms for using this medicine are excessive flatulence in abdomen. Excessive craving for sweets and hot drinks is usually experienced by patients requiring this medicine. For treating left-sided Inguinal Hernia, Cocculus Indicus is of great help. For prescribing Cocculus Indicus, the symptoms are distended abdomen due to flatus with relief when lying on the side and a craving for cold drinks. Nausea is almost always felt by patients requiring Cocculus Indicus. For left-sided Inguinal Hernia in children, Nux Vomica gives best results. The child is usually very angy and suffers from chronic constipation.

1. For Umbilical Hernia

Calcarea Carbonica is considered the best Umbilical hernia remedy. It is of particular help for treatment of Hernia in patients who also have an abundance of fat in the abdomen. The abdomen is sensitive to the slightest pressure. An unusual craving for eggs may be felt and milk always makes the condition of such patients worse. Nux Vomica is a natural remedy which can help in treating Umbilical Hernia which is accompanied by constipation of long duration. Strangulated hernia of umbilicus can also be treated with this medicine. For treating Umbilical Hernia in children, Chamomilla gives good results. The children requiring this medicine usually complain of intense pain in the umbilical region. Irritability of the utmost degree is always noticed in such children.

2. For Femoral Hernia

Both Nux vomica and Lycopodium Clavatum are equally good medicines for treating Femoral Hernia. The patients requiring Nux Vomica feel very cold and sufferfrom chronic constipation. They have a craving for fatty food, alcoholic drinks or coffee. The patients requiring Lycopodium Clavatum are weak, emaciated and suffer from excessive flatulence in abdomen. They crave for warm drinks and warm food. The complaints are always worse between 4pm and 8pm in patients requiring Lycopodium Clavatum for Femoral Hernia.

3. For Treatment of Obstructed Hernia

Opium is the top medicine for treating patients of Obstructed Hernia. The patients requiring Opium have an extremely bloated abdomen, which is hard to touch, with retention of faeces in intestines. There is also no desire to pass stool and vomiting containing faecal matter is always experienced. Tabacum is of help to patients of Incarcerated Hernia in whom the abdomen is distended and is painful to touch. Such a patient wants to uncover the abdomen. The patient also experiences excessive nausea along with constipation. Vomiting of faecal matter occurs as well.

4. For Strangulated Hernia

Plumbum Metallicum is an excellent medicine for the treatment of Strangulated Hernia. This is prescribed when the patient complains of extreme colic in abdomen with obstruction of stool and flatus. The patient  feels as if a string is pulling the abdominal wall towards the spine. Colocynthis can help in relieving the colicky pain in abdomen in Strangulated Hernia where the patient is relieved by bending double or by applying pressure on the abdomen.

  22. Hi Doctor
    Writing this with huge hope as I m too distressed with my condition
    Ten years back I used to tie my stomach area too tight ab sit for studying. This continued pressure for some days caused me separation of abdominal muscles which I got to know much later, my whole abdomen was paining like hell, I could not stand or walk
    No tests revealed anything and no doctor cud understand anything
    I suffered for months and it healed and I was back to my life but could never stand for more than five minutes, wear clothes like denims , means all my abdominal area was ruined but I could continue my life like this by managing though I didn’t know by then what the issue was
    Few years back while researching in net , I understood what it was.
    But now it has again got worse and I m in severe pain, can’t stand for a minute and whole abdominal area in distended and swollen condition
    What do I do as doctors can’t find what it is and so no use of going there
    Can you help me anyway

    I got operated for Bilateral Inguinal hernia 5 month back with a Mesh. It wasnt that serious but doctors advised me to go for surgery to avoid any further complications . I thought that it would help me to recover fast and once again i can take my gum activity seriously
    However I have not fully recovered But still I have pains at the site of right side . I feel comfortable when my bowels are clear . after a gap of 5 moths I have started going to Gym but now not lifting any weights bur doing cardio and crunches that gives me relief.
    I want a permanent solution over this problem . Kindly suggest me some good remedies.

  26. Dr Sharma,
    I know of 3 types of Hernias not listed above: a friend of mine has a hernia under her breast bone, the doctors think it is encroaching on her esophagus and could strangle her. Which remedy here?
    The next is mine, it pops out from under my ribs if I bend over too far. It doesn’t hurt but is uncomfortable and I can generally ease it back in. Suggested remedy. The last is my son, he attempted lifting a weight that was too heavy and seems to have herniated the periosteum in his fore arm. Would that still be Rhus Tox?

    Very interesting article!
