When an organ residing in a cavity such as the abdomen tries to push through the muscular layer it resides in, it is called as hernia.
Though said to be genetic, hernias can be caused by things such as improper heavy lifting, incorrect posture, or chronic constipation and as a result of surgical complication or injury. Factors like obesity, pregnancy, smoking, chronic lung disease aggravate the severity of the hernia. It is believed that about 27% of all males and 3% of females can have a hernia during their lifetime.
Types of hernias:
- Inguinal hernia: The groin is the most common area, where the abdomen pushes through a weak spot in the lower abdominal wall, causing a protrusion into the inguinal canal. This is more common in men than women.
- Hiatal hernia: The abdomen has the diaphragm separating it from the thoracic cavity in the upper border. When it pushes through the diaphragm, a hernia is caused and there is almost always associated food reflux in these cases. Though the most common cause is associated old age, due to muscle weakness, there also are cases of congenital hiatal hernias.
- Umbilical hernia: The abdomen finds a weak layer along its length and protrudes through the skin on the stomach. Most commonly seen in babies around the bellybutton, it gradually corrects itself on its own. Quiet rare in adults, seen during pregnancy and in chronic obese people.
- Incisional: These are post-surgical, and happen when the organ protrudes through the weakened wall due to surgery. The abdomen is again the most common area and the hernia can happen either onto the external surface or internally, when they are called ventral hernias.
These are the most frequent types, though hernia affects other organs like the spine, brain, appendix, etc.
This includes a combination of constant monitoring followed by a decision to do surgical treatment. Hiatal hernias and umbilical hernias can be monitored for a while before deciding on surgery. Inguinal hernias may require surgery earlier in the stage. Post-surgery, a mesh is placed to hold back the tissue in its corrected place. The umbilical hernia in children could be self-limiting. If it does not get auto-corrected in the first year of life, that also would qualify for a surgical treatment. Hernias need to be managed under medical supervision.

Hello friends, I am Dr Kamal Agarwal, a homeopath physician practicing at Ramesh Nagar Wellness clinic. We will discuss about joint and muscle problems.
How homeopathy is better than modern medicine for above problems?
Joint and muscle pain can be a result of normal and day to day activities. The common treatment is taking pain killers, but this action is temporary and simply number the brain so that the pain isn't felt.
They have side effects in the long run and such drugs should be avoided without prescription. Homeopathy has a lot of medicines for such problems without side effects. Another common set of problems we face on our daily life is the allergy raked problems like cold, cough and skin problems. This could be due to dust, pollen or sunlight.
The symptoms could be sneezing, itching or even swelling in extreme conditions. This is a body reaction and the person faces a lot of problems.
Modern medicine have anti allergic drugs they supress the body reaction capacity, the side effect here is the lower down the overall body immunity. Hence homeopathy is the best solution to such problems without any kind of side effects and permanent solutions.
