Dear XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing to us.
Given your description, it sounds like an inguinal hernia. As far as ayurvedic treatment is concerned, it is an abnormal opening which causes the hernia so no medicine can close this opening permanently. The opening has to be stitched. We can offer help by making stools loose and by applying hernia belt externally. With this, chances of the hernia increasing and being strangulated are much reduced.
You can have trifla vati or panch sakar churan to keep bowel slightly loose.
Wish you perfect health.

Hy am a 26 year old male having a chronic problem with breathing since i was 16. It first started out as i woke up and went to baskteball practise,when i started runing i noticed i was getting short of breath like i was a heavy smoker or somth.Than came fatigue i was tired evry day...and thats how it is evry day for the last 10 years always tired and always shortnes of breath.The worst time of the day is always morning...if i feel little better at night in morning it all disapears and is bad like before also i wake up earlier many time cause i need to pee often. Its like i have some kind of pressure in diagphragm area which doesnt let me breath in fully. I made lots of examinations when i made my first x ray i was diagnosed with hernia and than when i did my next x ray there was no hernia which confused me even more...i did also swalowing of that tube and it showed lots of acidity the doctor evan asked me if i was eating somthin that morning because it was acidic or somth while i havent eaten for 12 h... I have taken controloc for a month and it didnt help me,i also tok lansoprasole for a month and it didnt help me either I was also thested for pylori which was negative The most frustrating part about this is that am tired evry day and short of breath and if somtimes is a little better in morning is all back to square one..tired and feeling of pressure abdomen and short of breath and its like that throughout the whole day so its not a atack of some kind. What could be my problem,thank u for listening

I recently had surgery for a hernia and have been very constipated the 3 following days. Today my stomach began to get bloated to the point of not being able to walk. I have been eating a lot of fiber trying to aid in a bowel movement but have not had much luck. Do I need to be eating more food overall? I have not been hungry lately because of stomach pains.. was wondering what else I could do to help get 'regular' again

Hi, I was asked to get a breath test which would assist in diagnosis of any hernia s or irregularities related to the GI tract. What would be prescribed on the pre-req form? is it a separate test requiring a separate pre-req form or do you need to be referred to a specialist by your GP?

My husband had a double hernia repaired almost two weeks ago and now he's breaking out in a rash that's very itchy. Benadryl seems to help, but doesn't completely eliminate the problem. Could it be a reaction to the internal disolvable stitches? We've ruled out everything else he could be reacting to.
