Background

In Western Medicine

A hernia occurs when an organ pushes through an opening in the muscle or tissue that holds it in place.

There are several different kinds of hernias including incisional hernia, abdominal or ventral hernia, femoral hernia, sports hernia, belly button hernia or an umbilical hernia, and groin hernia or inguinal hernia. The most common one is in the abdomen, but they can also appear in the upper thigh, belly button, and groin areas. Most hernias aren’t immediately life-threatening, but they don’t go away on their own. Sometimes they can require surgery to prevent potentially dangerous complications.

In TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine)

In TCM, there are many different kinds of hernias and can be caused by liver Qi stagnation, cold and dampness invading the liver channel and affect the liver Qi, kidney Qi deficiency and stomach and spleen Qi deficiency. The main reason after all is Qi deficiency, because the lungs contain Qi and lungs also control the suction of the body parts such as pores, skins, muscles and organs etc. When the lungs are weak and unable to regulate Blood and Qi these parts will open (Pores), relax (Muscles) and prolapse (Intestine).  When the small intestine sags it becomes inguinal hernia and becomes a lump or bulge in the inner groin, which can be as big as a fist or as small as a chestnut or an egg. In some cases it can look flat when the body lies flat at night and then develop a painful lump during the course of the day. In more severe cases the pain can start earlier in the morning or later in the evening for less severe occurrences. The pain gets worse when the individual did not sleep well the night before and is tired or exhausted.

In severe cases surgery is required to close the peritoneal break or tear.  Always consult with your health care provider if you believe you to have a hernia.

TCM believes that after a hernia surgery this herbal formula may help to avoid recurrence and repeated surgery.

- dull pain when stand up

Diet & Prevention

Exercise daily to keep your body and immune system strong.  Strengthen the lungs with the rib stretch exercise to increase lung capacity.  Stand upright with your back arched and exhale all the oxygen from your lungs then breathe in slowly, filling your lungs as much as possible and hold your breath for at least 10 seconds then slowly exhale.  

It is best to avoid eating uncooked (raw), greasy, pungent food, spicy, and chocolate. No smoking, drinking alcohol, coffee and cold beverages.
