A hernia results when an internal organ protrudes through a weak spot in your muscle or tissue. 

You may develop various types of hernias, such as inguinal hernias, femoral hernias, umbilical hernias, and Hiatal hernias. 

It's crucial to treat a hernia naturally as soon as you discover it. 


What is Hernia?

Hernia refers to the bulging of an organ or tissue due to an opening that is not normal—hernias has different types. Most often, they affect the abdominal organs, particularly the groin. Groin hernias are typical of the inguinal type. However, they could also be of the femoral type.

A condition known as hernia, or antra vriddhi in Ayurveda, occurs when an internal organ in your abdomen becomes displaced and protrudes outward, resulting in abdominal swelling.

A hernia can occur anywhere in the body, most often in the abdominal area. It can affect men and women of any age.


Symptoms of Hernia:

  • A lump in the abdomen's inguinal region
  • Pain in abdomen
  • Gas or acidity
  • Motions are not clear


What is the Main Cause of Hernia?

Although a hernia may be inherited, other factors may also play a role in its development. They are:

  • Consistent coughing 
  • Excessive pressure when passing feces
  • Straining your abdominal muscles through exercise or lifting heavy objects 
  • Obesity 
  • Fluid buildup in your abdominal cavity
  • A visible, hard protrusion, the appearance of soft lumps, and pain are all signs of a hernia.  


On the other hand, some people might not notice any symptoms. There are many types of hernias, some of which are gender-specific and others that affect different body parts. In the worst-case scenario, you might need surgery, but Ayurveda can completely treat your hernia without having surgery.


Types of hernia:

There are 6 most common types of hernias:

1.Inguinal hernia (inner groin):

The most prevalent type of Hernia in men and women is inguinal. When fatty or intestinal tissues push against the weak abdominal wall close to the right or left of the inguinal ring, an inguinal hernia develops in the abdomen near the groin area. 

Two-thirds of indirect inguinal hernias enter the inguinal canal through the internal inguinal ring, while one-third of direct inguinal hernias enter the inguinal canal.


Symptoms of Inguinal Hernia include:

  • Bulge near the pubic bone that shows up when you cough or strain while standing up.
  • Burning sensation at the stomach's bulge
  • Pain in the groin
  • Heaviness in your groin
  • When the intestines enter the scrotum, they cause pain and swelling around the testicles.
  • Weakness or strain in the crotch region


2.Umbilical Hernia (belly button):

In this type of hernia, the intestines protrude through an opening in the abdominal muscles made by the umbilical cord. Adults, as well as infants, can develop this type of hernia.


Umbilical hernia symptoms include:

  • A swollen, soft bulge close to the umbilicus.


Femoral hernia (outer groin):

A femoral hernia occurs when tissue pushes through the wall of the femoral canal and into the femoral artery, small veins, and nerves. It will show up close to the crotch or thigh.


Symptoms of Femoral hernia include:

  • Discomfort and pain
  •  The possibility of a groin bulge


4.Diaphragmatic Hernia

Diaphragmatic Hernia congenital (from birth) disability is caused by an abnormal opening in the diaphragm, the muscle that connects the chest and abdomen. An opening in this kind of Hernia allows a portion of the belly's organs to move into the chest cavity near the lungs.


Diaphragmatic Hernia symptoms include:

  • Pain
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Discomfort and heartburn
  • Belching
  • Chest pain 


5.Hiatal hernia (upper stomach):

This type of hernia happens when the upper part of the stomach pushes up through your diaphragm and into your chest region.


Hiatal hernia symptoms include:

  • Heartburn
  • Pain in the chest
  • Vomiting


6. Incisional hernia (resulting from an incision):

Incisional hernias are caused by surgical wounds that have not fully healed.

Incisional hernia symptoms include:

  • Visible protrusion or bulge.
  • Pain 
  • Swelling

How Can Ayurveda Help to Manage Hernias?

Can Hernia be treated without a surgery?

Surgery is the most common treatment for hernias that doctors recommend. But surgery comes with many problems, the most common of which is the Hernia returning. The development of seroma, inability or difficulty urinating, damage to organs or tissue, and the body's beginning to reject the meshes are just a few of hernia surgery's many additional side effects.

Ayurveda is the best treatment for Hernia. All three doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) are balanced by it. Ayushakti Ayurved provides the best, most natural, and safe treatment for Hernia.

By focusing on your diet, Ayurveda helps heal your hernia. You can completely treat your hernia if you follow these guidelines.


Ayurvedic Treatment Fundamental (ayurvedic treatment for hernia)

  • Apan Balance (Remove gasses & improve intestine tone)
  • Reduce Swelling (Strengthen muscular tissues of inguinal region)


Detox Therapy (Panchkarma Therapy)

Detox is the Ayurvedic cleansing process for body, mind and emotions that helps you to create holistic health and well-being in your life. Digestive impurities such as mucus and metabolic toxins pile up in the veins, intestine, liver and joints. They circulate throughout the entire body and block the system. Continuous build-up of these impurities can cause physical and mental disorders and disease. A Detox helps to clean out toxins. Marma points help to remove blockages and improve circulation.

The type of detox will depend on the chronicity and severity of the problem.

  • Smart detox
  • Dynamic detox 
  • Power detox
  • Super detox 

It may include Ghrutpan, Virechana, and Basti (as per condition).



Virechana is the sedated purgation treatment that scrubs the body from the Pitta Dosha and eliminates toxins from the gastrointestinal tract, liver, and nerve bladder. 

Virechana is a sodhana(purification) treatment. This is typically finished after Snehapana and three days of fomenting. Medication will be in any structure, fluid or powder, or decoction and should be taken while fasting. Before taking the medication, the patient should hydrate regularly until defecations start.

Virechana also heals vaginal diseases, diseases of the semen, intestinal parasites, ulcers, gout, bleeding diseases in the upward direction, blood toxins and diseases, suppression of urine, Hernia and obstructed feces.


Niruha Basti (Aasthaapana Basti)

Niruha Basti is an Ayurvedic Panchakarma treatment wherein decoction blended in with honey, rock salt, Medicated ghee, and so forth is managed through the anal route, similar to an enema. It is also called Asthapana basti or kshayavasti. Since this Basti expels (eliminates) the morbid Doshas or sicknesses from the body, it is called NIRUHA BASTI (Niruha - To take out). 

Basti is useful for many disorders, including chronic constipation, hernia, sciatica, lower back pain, arthritis, gout, and rheumatism.
