Are there herbal treatments for a hernia?


Answer by  DrAckula (11)

There may be herbal treatments to treat the pain which is usually associated with a hernia. A hernia is where underlying organs or muscles protrude from inbetween surface muscles. This seems to require medical attention to be properly treated. Herbal treatments would only do as much good in relieving the pain of such an event.

A hernia is caused by a torn membrane in your body. To fix it, you need surgery. There are no herbs that are going to cause that membrane to become repaired. Herbs can be used as a palliative or as a seasoning in your spaghetti sauce, but it can't perform miracles, despite what some web pages tell you.

Generally speaking, no there are not. There are potential herbal treatments for a variety of conditions that could replace a traditional drug, but a hernia is not one of those conditions. A hernia is the physical dislocation of part of your intestine and requires surgical intervention. No amount of a supplement will accomplish the same thing.

There are no effective non-surgical treatments for hernia becuase they are due to a structural defect that needs to be closed.

No there are not. Hernias are a structural / anatomical problem and require surgical correction. Don't let anyone tell you they can fix a hernia non surgically.
