Natural Herbal Treatment For Hernia (Koropon) In Yoruba


What is Hernia (Koropon) In Yoruba?

Hernia/Koropon (In Yoruba)  is a swelling, bulge or growth that occurs when an organ pushes through an opening in the muscle for tissue that holds it in place. For example, the intestines may break through a weakened area in the abdominal wall.

Hernias/Koropon (In Yoruba) are most common in the abdomen, but they can also appear in the upper thigh, belly button, and groin areas. Most hernias are not immediately life threatening, but they don’t go away on their own and can require surgery to prevent potentially dangerous complications.

Inguinal hernias are the most common type of hernia. They make up about 70 percent of all hernias, according to the British Hernia Centre (BHC).These hernias occur when the intestines push through a weak spot or tear in the lower abdominal wall, often in the inguinal canal.The inguinal canal is found in your groin.In men, it is the area where the spermatic cord passes from the abdomen to the scrotum. This cord holds up the testicles.In women, the inguinal canal contains a ligament that helps hold the uterus in place.This type of hernia is more common in men than in women. This is because a man’s testicles descend through the inguinal canal shortly after birth, and the canal is supposed to close almost completely behind them. Sometimes, the canal does not close properly and leaves a weakened area prone to hernias.


hiatal hernia occurs when part of your stomach protrudes up through the diaphragm into your chest. The diaphragm is a sheet of muscle that helps you breathe by contracting and drawing air into the lungs. It separates the organs in your abdomen from those in your chest.This type of hernia is most common in patients over 50 years old. If a child has the condition, it’s typically caused by a congenital (birth) defect.Hiatal hernias almost always cause gastroesophageal reflux, which is when the stomach contents leak backward into the esophagus, causing a burning sensation.



Umbilical hernias can occur in children and babies under 6 months old. This happens when their intestines bulge through their abdominal wall near their bellybutton. You may notice a bulge in or near your child’s bellybutton, especially when they’re crying.An umbilical hernia is the only kind that often goes away on its own, typically by the time the child is 1 year old. If the hernia has not gone away by this point, herbal medicine  may be used to correct it.



Incision hernias can occur after you’ve had abdominal surgery. Your intestines may push through the incision scar or the surrounding, weakened tissue.



Hernias are caused by a combination of muscle weakness and strain. Depending on its cause, a hernia can develop quickly or over a long period of time.Common causes of muscle weakness include:

– failure of the abdominal wall to close properly in the womb, which is a congenital defect
– age
– chronic coughing
– damage from injury or surgery
– factors that strain your body and may cause a hernia, especially if your muscles are weak, include:
– being pregnant, which puts pressure on your abdomen)
– being constipated, which causes you to strain when having a bowel movement
– heavy weight lifting fluid in the abdomen, or ascites
– suddenly gaining weight
– persistent coughing or sneezing


The factors that increase your risk of developing a hernia include:a personal or family history of hernias
– being overweight or obese
– a chronic cough
– chronic constipation
– smoking, which can trigger a chronic cough
– Conditions such as cystic fibrosis can also indirectly increase your risk of developing a hernia. Cystic fibrosis impairs the function of the lungs, causing a chronic cough.


The most common symptom of a hernia is a bulge or lump in the affected area. In the case of an inguinal hernia, you may notice a lump on either side of your pubic bone where your groin and thigh meet. You’re more likely to feel your hernia through touch when you’re standing up.

If your baby has a hernia, you may only be able to feel the bulge when he or she is crying. A bulge is typically the only symptom of an umbilical hernia.

Other common symptoms of an inguinal hernia include
– pain or discomfort in the affected area (usually the lower abdomen), especially when bending over
– coughing, or lifting
– weakness, pressure, or a feeling of heaviness in the abdomen
– a burning, gurgling, or aching sensation at the site of the bulge

Other symptoms of a hiatal hernia include:
– acid reflux, which is when stomach acid moves backward into the esophagus causing a burning sensation
– chest pain
– difficulty swallowing

In some cases, hernias have no symptoms. You may not know you have a hernia unless it shows up during a routine physical or a medical exam for an unrelated problem.


Whether or not you need treatment depends on the size of your hernia and the severity of your symptoms. Your doctor may simply monitor your hernia for possible complications. Treatment options for a hernia include:


Dietary changes can often treat the symptoms of a hiatal hernia. Avoid large or heavy meals, don’t lie down or bend over after a meal, and keep your body weight in a healthy range.

If these changes in diet don’t eliminate your discomfort, you may need surgery to correct the hernia. You can also improve symptoms by avoiding foods that cause acid reflux or heartburn, such as spicy foods and tomato-based foods. Additionally, you can avoid reflux by losing weight and giving up cigarettes.


If left untreated, your hernia may grow and become more painful. A portion of your intestine could become trapped in the abdominal wall. This can obstruct your bowel, causing severe pain, nausea, and constipation.

An untreated hernia can also put too much pressure on nearby tissues, which can cause swelling and pain in the surrounding area.If the trapped section of your intestines doesn’t get enough blood flow, strangulation occurs. This can cause the intestinal tissue to become infected or die. A strangulated hernia is life-threatening and requires immediate medical care.


You can’t always prevent the muscle weakness that allows a hernia to occur. However, you can reduce the amount of strain you place on your body. This may help you avoid a hernia or keep an existing hernia from getting worse.

Prevention tips include:

– not smoking
– seeing your doctor when you’re sick to avoid developing a persistent cough
– maintaining a healthy body weight
– avoiding straining during bowel movements or urination
– lifting objects with your knees and not your back
– avoiding lifting weights that are too heavy for you


  1. Air potato (Isu Ahun Or Isu Ijapa) In Yoruba


Isu Ijapa or Isu Ahun  as they are called in Yoruba I found out here that they’re called in English, Air Potatoes, scientific name Dioscorea bulbifera and are in fact small yams. Some varieties contain steroid hormones and some are used medicinally in China also.

2. Candelabrum Or Cabbage Tree (Egbo Okan) In Yoruba

And the roots of this herb called Okan in Yoruba, specially treated and mixed together with Lime. Its scientific name is called Combretum smeathmanni

3.  Lime (Osan Wewe) In Yoruba

Works in 3 days

So within 3 days of drinking the herbal remedy your hernia will be gone,

When confronted with this claim I was a little sceptical  as my understanding (should that be mis-understanding) of Hernias is that they can only be treated with surgery

However, when i make researches i also find out the Chinese , Holistic and Ayurvedic Medicine also say they can. I don’t validate this claim with these others, just needed to hear supporting voices from outside orthodox medicine  .

The combined effect of the above herbs ( Isu Ijapa + Egbo Okan + Lime)  is a steroidal component plus painkilling properties and a digestive aid.
