Detailed Answer:

I presume you are talking about hernia.

There is no scientific basis that ladies mantle is useful in treating hernia. There is no evidence to prove that ladies mantle or any other form of medication is sufficient to treat hernia. I have also not found no enough anecdotal evidences to prove that ladies mantle alone has helped in this case. You will still need additional measures such as weight reduction, avoiding strenuous activities and treating constipation/chronic cough early to treat hernia. The aforementioned conservative measures will be helpful in keeping hernia stable.

A permanent treatment/cure is from surgery alone.

Hope this helps. You are free to write back for clarifications.
