My partner has recently developed an umbilical hernia. It looks like a little lump right above his navel that moves when he touches it. According to information online, adult hernias do not heal without medical attention (ie surgery) and generally get worse. Medical skeptics that we are, we of course believe that there must be an alternative treatment to surgery, like exercises to strengthen the muscles or a diet to ease his digestion and help those muscles heal. He wavers between 50% and 80% raw, depending on his stress level and how much time I've had to make tempting meals. Does anyone have any thoughts/suggestions/ experience about how to heal a hernia?
