First of all one should find out the main cause of the disease,what ayurveda says. The surgery is the final option for you.Acoording to my science grahani,puran shwas- kassa,jeerna jwara,aarsha(piles and abdominal swelling),IBS
,mental imbalance,roasted food,uneven eating+behavior habits etc give birth to this disease.So that one has to treat these first.Then only the final remedy is possible.Ayurveda thinks about the wholesome of body along with the local part of it.
viz intestinal,umbilical have some major causes which are completely neglected by the modern medicine science.I am not denying the necessity of operation(the branch of surgery is originated from ayurveda,which most of the surgens do not know) but when?This is the last option.
Many operative techniques are available for this.My 13 years experiance says that most of the guys(90%)get post operative hazards and then they came to me(ayurveda),in such difficult cases they got the result.If the patient come before the operation,he/she definately gets the result if the root cause is ruled out properly;this is my experiance.The sukshma pachan of blood+mamsa+kapha dosha is to be considered.But this very sukshma thing is not captured by the medicinal treatment(?)existing today.This is there in ancient granthas written before 5000 years called AYURVEDA!So the people who are saying that only operation cures hernia should take some knowledge of ayurveda to give the proper service to people.
