7 Natural Cures For Umbilical Hernia

Generally, umbilical hernia is found in the case of infants, but there might be a chance of occurrence in the adults as well. If the adult is pregnant, overweight and having excess fluid in the abdomen, then umbilical hernia occurs.

The main cause of an umbilical hernia is when fluid, tissue or a part of an organ like the intestine pushes through a damaged part of the abdominal wall. Though a surgery is recommended by most of the doctors for this disease, there are a lot of natural remedies to get rid of the umbilical hernia.

7 Best Natural Cures For Umbilical Hernia

1. Yoga

Stress is the main cause of umbilical hernias, as stress will intensify acid reflux and stomach ailments. So, yoga, meditation, and different breathing exercises are advised to manage stress. Different yoga like kapal-bharati, anulom-bilom, bhramari, etc. is advised by the different yoga instructors for umbilical hernia.


2. Chamomile

Umbilical hernia occurs in the abdominal region, which can lead to acid reflux. In this case, chamomile herb is very helpful. It helps to pacify the lining of the digestive region and prevents the production of stomach acids. To soothe the esophageal lining it is also very helpful.

3. Hawthornia

A mix of the litchi seed, hawthorn, fennel, and citrus seed is called as hawthornia. It is widely used in China for curing the umbilical hernia disease. It repairs and strengthens the weakened wall of the abdomen. If hawthornia is used early, then it can prevent the development of umbilical hernia and limits its growth as well.

4. Balanced Food Habit

Intake of higher protein food and fat food like chicken, tuna, lentils, cottage cheese, skim milk, and other beans will weaken the abdominal wall, which leads to hernia development. So, choose a balanced food on a daily basis for your diet. If you take high fiber food like dark-green vegetables, and unrefined whole grains and fruits to reduce the risk of constipation, then they can also weaken the abdominal wall. The food that you take everyday should consist all the above-mentioned things, but in a balanced manner.

5. Shepherd

The herb shepherd is very helpful to reduce pain, swelling, and inflammation. It is also useful for infection and bleeding. You can also use it in the form of a paste, externally on the hernia affected area to ease the symptoms. In the form of a supplement, you can also take it internally. It will strengthen the abdominal wall.

6. Exercise

To strengthen the core muscles you have to do daily exercise. A regular exercise can minimize the risk of obesity. You have to be careful during exercise as an improperly performed exercise such as heavy lifting can put a strain on the abdominal area as well as visceral muscles. Due to this, hernia gets developed. So, a careful exercise is very much required.

7. Licorice

Licorice root is very useful for curing the damaged areas of the abdomen (the main cause of the umbilical hernia). It is also important for the curing of damaged areas of esophagus and stomach lining that causes the hernia. For alleviating burning and pain in the throat and chest, it is also very useful.

    Stress and gastroesophageal reflux/acid indigestion have nothing to do with an umbilical hernia.

    • Benni

      Not true. Any stomach hernia spills out stomach acid… this is first year med school stuff. Though a qualified doctor I prefer to suggest an alkaline diet, gentle exercise, and try to lose weight and reduce stress rather than antacids or surgery.

      • Vagabunda

        ok maybe for a stomach hernia… but the website is about umbilical hernia… isn’t it the intestine that bulge out most of the time in a umbilical hernia ?

      Haha, idiot.

  • Benni

    I think mine came because I gained weight. The acid I get from it is dreadful. I do use herbal teas and an alkaline diet, and Im trying to lose weight. It looks weird when Ive had a meal, like a mini doctor who adipose trying to pop out… oh dear.
