Hernia

http://dherbs.com/images/dherbs400x400.jpg

The word "hernia" comes from a Latin word meaning 'rupture.' Basically, a hernia is some kind of rupture.

Causes and Risk Factors

Hernia can happen in many different parts of the body.

Abdominal Hernia

An abdominal hernia is a hernia in which a loop of bowel protrudes through the abdominal structure, often through the site of an old surgical scar. It is also known as 'ventral hernia.'


Diaphragmatic Hernia

A diaphragmatic hernia is the protrusion of part of the stomach through an opening in the diaphragm, most commonly an abnormally enlarged esophageal hiatus.

In some cases the intestines may also herniate into the chest. The enlargement of the normal opening for the esophagus may be caused by trauma, congenital weakness, increased abdominal pressure, or relaxation of ligaments of skeletal muscles, and permits part of the stomach to slide into the thorax. A sliding hiatus hernia, one of the most common pathologic conditions of the upper GI tract, may occur at any age but is most frequent in elderly and middle-aged people. A kind of diaphragmatic hernia is hiatus hernia.

Femoral Hernia

A femoral hernia is a hernia in which a loop of the intestine descends through the femoral canal into the groin.

Hiatus Hernia

A hiatus hernia is a protrusion of a portion of the stomach upward through the diaphragm. The condition occurs in about 40% of the population, and most people display few, if any, symptoms. The major difficulty in symptomatic patients is gastroesophageal reflux, the backflow of the acid contents of the stomach into the esophagus.

Inguinal Hernia

Inguinal hernia is a hernia in which a loop of the intestine enters the inguinal canal, sometimes filling, in a male, the entire scrotal sac. Of all hernias, 75% to 80% are inguinal hernias.

An inquinal hernia so large that it passes into the scrotum is called a scrotal hernia.

Umbilical Hernia

Umbilical hernia is a soft, skin-covered protrusion of intestine and omentum through weakness in the abdominal wall around the umbilicus. It usually closes spontaneously within 1 to 2 years. This hernia commonly occurs in newborns (new babies).

Herniated Disk

Herniated disk is a rupture of the fibrocartilage surrounding an invertebral disk, releasing the nucleus pulposus that cushions the vertebrae above and below. The resultant pressure on spinal nerve roots may cause considerable pain and damage the nerves. The condition most frequently occurs in the lumbar region.

Natural Healing For Hernia

Under allopathic medicine or allopathic medical approaches, hernias are repaired via the process of surgery. Hernias (all kinds) take time to heal.

Perform the Sea Salt soak daily (for all hernias, umbilicus hernia is optional).

Colonic hydrotherapy is highly recommended (for all hernias except umbilicus hernia).

Consider seeing a chiropractic specialist.

Reiki, pranic healing, acupuncture/acupressure, and magnet therapy are all highly recommended for healing purposes of all hernias (umbilicus hernias are optional should a parent choose to use one of these healing modalities). Choose the modality that you feel is best for you or that gives your relief and aids in your healing process.

When using magnets, never apply the South side to the body as South stimulates and North is healing. Always use the North side of a magnet.

Umbilical hernia

Umbilical hernias usually reduce to normal or near normal within a year or two so parents, especially mothers, shouldn't worry. These usually reduce in its own time.

An old wives tale suggests taping a quarter over the protruding navel. If anything, you can tape a flat-shaped clear quartz crystal over the herniated area from time to time to facilitate healing.

From time to time, gently massage the baby's abdomen and stomach with natural oil (coconut oil, olive oil, jojoba oil) or shea butter, massaging the area in a circular motion.

NOTE: Do not feed a baby grains or honey for the first 2 years of life! Grains are too hard on the baby's digestive tract and digestion process.

Hiatus or hiatal hernia
When there is hiatus or hiatal hernia, the condition is due to too much acid in the body (gastrointestinal tract) due to acidic diet, which results from meat, dairy, and refined grain consumption. Too much acid (from poor diet) in the body throws of the natural acidity level of the stomach and GI tract.

Herniated disk
Sleeping on a magnetic pad is also helpful for healing in a herniated disk condition. Visit one of the following sites to order a magnetic mattress pad:
  • MagneticMattressCovers.com
  • BetterHealthInnovations.com
  • shokos.com
  • nextag.com
Get plenty of rest and stay off your feet as much as possible when there is herniated disk.

Periodically, place a hot pack on the herniated disk area. Alternate between cold pack and heat pack is you wish to do so.

Also, you can place green-colored crystals on the herniated disk area as well. The color green stimulates healing.

Dietary Intervention

For a brief period of time, consider a RAW FOODS diet (for all kinds of hernias)! Abstain from eating acidic foods, which are processed, refined, and cooked foods. For raw food recipes and living, see our Dietary Choices section (under More Services on the home page) at www.dherbs.com

Eat plenty of raw, organic fruits (especially mango and papaya) and vegetables. Consume plenty of raw fruit and vegetable juice as well!

Drinking 1-2 ounces of Aloe Vera juice daily will also help.

Refrain from consuming acidic beverages, beverages such as coffee, soda pop, wine/alcohol/beer, lattes, milk, Gatorade, commercial brand fruit beverages, etc. (for all kinds of hernias). Instead, drink plenty of alkaline water (see article on Alkaline Water) and herbal teas (see Dherbs.com Herbal Teas section in the on-line store).

Drink plenty of vegetable juice daily too.

One can counteract any over-acidic situation and issue by consuming more alkalizing foods and beverages.

Reasons to Stay Clear of Eggs

For many making the transition to a plant-based lifestyle, cheese and eggs can be the hardest things to give up. In fact, a love for eggs and cheese in particular is often cited as one of the reasons people go vegetarian as opposed to vegan. It seems meat is easy to give up for some, while many can’t let go of the dairy stuffs. Recently, a Huffington Post blogger posted on “5 Smart Reasons to Eat Eggs,” with mention of the high protein content of the food, a possible reduced risk of cancer, and more. We’re here to tell you, Green Monsters, this advice isn’t so great for you – or for the animals involved in the egg industry. Here are 5 Reasons to NOT Eat Eggs:

1. Many studies show egg consumption actually increases the risk of certain types of cancers, including colorectal and bladder cancers. Check this out: “A case-control study done in Argentina found that people consuming approximately 1 1/2 eggs per week had nearly 5 times the colorectal cancer risk compared with individuals consuming less than 11 eggs per year. And, the World Health Organization analyzed data from 34 countries and determined that egg consumption was significantly and positively correlated with mortality from colon and rectal cancers in both men and women. Moderate egg consumption also tripled the risk of developing bladder cancer as determined by a case-control study of 130 newly diagnosed bladder cancer patients published in the journal International Urology and Nephrology.” In other words, don’t risk it! There are so many egg alternatives out there that it’s silly to risk your health.

Vermont to Pass GMO Labeling!

Against the odds and the lofty wallets of Monsanto lobbyists, Vermont is soon to be the first state to require mandatory GMO labeling.

On April 16, with a vote of 28 to 2, the Vermont state senate passed a bill that makes GMO labeling mandatory for all foods sold in Vermont. It also identifies it as being illegal for GMO-containing foods to be labelled as “natural” or “all natural.”
