    Hi all,

    Any thoughts/ experience on what helps those of you that are living with an hernia and do not plan (for whatever reason) to have a surgery any time soon?

    From my side apart from exercising regularly I have noticed some benefit from using zero drop/minimalistic shoes….is it just me or somebody else also noticed this??

    @alephy
    Coughing, constipation, and straining to urinate are the three problems that increase the intraabdominal pressure the most. Avoid these problems
