I used the comfrey poultice mentioned in this page along with the herbal combination for hernia which is a powder made up of Solomon seal root and marshmallow herbs for about 3 months. I am 60 years of age. It took away the pain in my lower groin in the first three weeks. Then the bulge started staying in after about a month. The bulge would come out when I put pressure on the groin area, especially if I lifted anything heavy.
I am quite pleased with the result of the comfrey poultice. My suggestion to those who would like to try it is to be patient as it will take time to rebuild and heal the damaged tissues.
