One in ten people is diagnosed with a hernia in their lifetime. The treatment for it requires a major operation and then a six-week recovery. But what if a patient does not wish to get operated? Are there any alternatives to treat hernia without the surgery?

Yes, there are! A medley of exercises and diet is ideal for strengthening weak abdominal muscles. It ensures supply of oxygenated blood and thus prevents the displacement of abdominal organs. Hernias are caused when a part of lower intestine breaks through the abdominal wall. It results from the pressure put on the abdominal wall when u lift heavy objects, cough persistently, or strain with constipation.
