How to repair and heal inguinal hernia without surgery

Inguinal hernia can be prevented or treated with natural methods and no surgery. There is medical evidence that sometimes “watchful waiting” is a safe and acceptable option.

Once diagnosed the hernia, there are two options: surgery or wait. Studies have shown that it is better to compare the risks associated with the surgery with the ones of living with the hernia, when this does not give particular trouble. Most likely, in the presence of minimal pain there is little or no reason for surgery.

Moreover, data indicates that not 100% of patients who had surgery get better, because the pain is likely to remain, even after surgery.

Unlike official medicine, according to “naturalist physicians” inguinal hernia should be operated only in very critical cases, because it’s curable with a specific diet and workouts for the abdominal area that should always be done either as preventive action or during the “watchful waiting” period.

In fact, you can not only keep an eye on the hernia to be sure it is stable, but also work to strenghten your abdominal muscles, hence reducing the risk of a worsening of your hernia. Or, decide to heal your ernia altogether, without drugs or surgery.

  1. My experience: small hernia with minimum pain, the physicians in the clinic recommended surgery. The first week, the pain was excruciating but went away slowly and progressively over time with a tingling sensation remaining. Now, 3 months later, the pain is bearable and a small “sausage” has appeared, hopefully disappearing. I’m looking for advice on if I avoiding heavy work with an unoperated point hernia. Because the slight discomfort remains!

  2. I have bearable but annoying groin pains. My physician prescribed a truss, which eliminates the pain when I wear it. I recently had a urology examination for other reasons (prostate). The urologist advised against use of the truss. If I don’t wear it, the pain is sufficiently strong to slow down my activities (working, walking). I do not need it when I go to bed. – Should I wear it or not? – Is it true that wearing it for too long, the tissue in the area of the hernia hardens, creating problems for surgery?

    1. Both physicians are correct. Wearing a hernia truss for too long creates problems.
      Therefore, the solution is to avoid wearing it for overly long periods of time. And there are two ways to proceed:
      opt for surgery soon, or undergo treatment following the exercises and diet described above.
      Among those who tried the latter method, some have eliminated the annoying pain, simply by changing their diet.
      The truss is only worn when standing. It is of no use when you’re lying down.
      On the other hand, among those who opted for surgery, there are some for whom the problem has not been resolved and they continue to endure a minimum level of pain. This is because both surgery and the truss tend to resolve the effect, but not the underlying cause. On the other hand, the natural method tends to resolve the origin of the problem.

  3. Hello, I have purchased the e-book “Treating a hernia without drugs or surgery”.
    I started doing the exercises 2 months ago, and I have now reached the 2nd level of the 3rd exercise. I have seen some small improvements: in the morning, on getting up, the hernia is slightly delayed in coming out, and while previously I had a level of pain that prevented me from standing up, now the pain has almost disappeared. I would like to know if I can now move on to other exercises, considering that I am not obese, in fact I am quite thin, and I had only a bit of a stomach which is now reduced. Or before moving ahead, should I first reach the 5th level of the third exercise?

    1. The book is written in such a way as to offer solutions that can help everyone.
      Considering your specific case and given your build, you might consider starting to follow the other exercises, however without over doing it.
      Please note. Moving on to the other exercises does not mean skipping the earlier ones.
      Medical hygienists recommend following the plan, always starting with the first exercise and then progressing.
      When time is no longer sufficient to follow all the exercises, you can split the plan into 2 or 3 parts.

  4. Hello, I would like to recount my adventure, if you can call it that!
    I am 26 years old and have already had hernia surgery twice at the same point. I was diagnosed 8 years ago, and on the advice of my physician, had surgery 5 years ago. I spent 3 months unable to do almost anything, returning slowly to my normal life. But last year it reappeared as if by magic. I went to the surgeon who claimed it was in another area, but I could feel it where I had been operated the first time. I decided to have surgery again. I should never have done it!!! During the operation I experienced unbelievable pain (I was under local anaesthesia), and I also heard the physician, who was unable to find the hernia!! This worried me greatly, however, after recovering, I started work after 2 months. But then the hernia reappeared without me having engaged in any exertion. It seems I had surgery for nothing. Now I am asking if it is worthwhile having surgery again (certainly not by the same surgeon, if you can call him that) or whether to try the alternatives.
    In any case, let me offer some advice: don’t have surgery unless it is necessary!

  5. Good evening, my 5 year old son has been diagnosed with an inguinal hernia by his paediatrician, confirmed by examination by a paediatric surgeon, who recommended surgery. With the child standing, nothing is visible from the front, on the other hand, when the child uses the bidet, when viewed from above, the left side of the groin appears slightly prolapsed towards the scrotum. However, an ultrasound did not confirm the hernia. The ultrasound operator was baffled and was rigorous, but found nothing. How is this possible? Thank you

    1. It is possible for different physicians to have contrasting diagnoses, especially when the symptoms are not so obvious. After all, physicians are human and aren’t infallible. From your description, it seems the hernia (if it truly exists) is at the first stage and there are surgeons who, before recommending surgery, prefer to wait, while monitoring the situation over time.
      Ask for some second opinions before you subject your child to surgery.

  6. Howdy! This article could not be written any better!
    Looking at this article reminds me of my previous roommate!

    He continually kept talking about this. I am going to
    send this article to him. Pretty sure he’s going to have a very good read. Thank you for sharing!

  7. I am 62,Male. For the past fifteen days I have been noticing the bulge on the right injunial. I’ve not consulted any doctor yet. I have some bearable pain now and then. At the moment I have decided not to consult any doctor. I have been pushing up my daily routine as usual hoping that I would avoid surgery. My opinion is based on several write ups of those who have undergone surgery, pros and cons included.

  8. iam a 62 old male. on aug 17, 2012 I had about 12 inches of my colon removed, non cancer. 3 days later where it was stapled together failed. went through emergency surgery . they fixed the leak and gave me a colonostomy. because of my age the surgeon asked me to wait a year. my whole stomach was a massive hernia. I wore a support belt during the day and slept without it. on aug 29 of 2013 I went back in for removal of the ostomy and repair of my stomach. he reconnected my colon but then gave me an ileostomy. he told me after that he had to remove more of the colon because it had became almost rock like. he then repaired my stomach by pushing both sides together. after reading some posts , I wonder if wearing the support for a year may have caused that. after 2 months , half of the repair has failed. it causes terrible pain and discomfort. I go back in for surgery on the 9th of dec. he is going to remove the ileostomy. I have to wait until next year for him to fix my herniated stomach. I wonder how I can live with it for so much longer. I am sick of pain pills and am going to try getting off them after the surgery. I am about 25 pounds overweight, and will lose that. do anyone think that loosing the weight would help me live with out the extra surgery? thank you
