What is a hernia ?
The typical definition of a hernia is a bulging of an organ or tissue through an abnormal opening. Ayurveda describes a hernia as a rupture due to swelling of the intestine. Over time, due to constant pressure, the swelling causes the abdominal wall to weaken.
Your intestines push through a gap created in the muscle wall, causing pain and discomfort. Ayurveda classifies all types of hernias as similar in nature since they are due to swelling of the intestine. A hernia usually occurs in the abdomen. The pain associated with a hernia can limit many aspects of your life and work.
But just as a fractured bone can heal overtime with the right support, so can a hernia.
Why is intestinal swelling caused ?
Intestinal swelling can occur for many different reasons. The major contributors are a sedentary lifestyle, overeating, eating at irregular times, irregular sleep cycles, stress, medications, or a subclinical infection in the intestine – such as candida Albicans or Helicobacter Pylori.
Irregular meal or sleep timings leaves the food undigested, which can cause an imbalance in the gut microflora. This coupled with irregular bowel movements or a pH imbalance can further create stress in the intestines and cause them to swell.
Did you know over 35% hernia cases relapse within a few years of surgery?
During a hernia surgery, the abdomen is cut open, the intestine is placed back where it should be, and the abdominal wall is repaired using a mesh to make sure it doesn’t happen again. However, this surgical procedure does not address the root cause of the hernia. The internal inflammation will still be present, meaning the hernia could relapse over time. Patients often develop another hernia after an initial hernia surgery. Unless the problem is fixed from within, the hernia will continue to relapse over time.
Moreover, since a hernia is not life threatening and some people choose to resort to “watchful waiting” – in such a case they switch over to a healthier lifestyle and try to keep the hernia soft, so as to avoid complications. A supplement really helps in such cases.
