Nature’s Method – Strength Magazine – March, 1928

There are many styles and types of trusses on the market-some of them give very satisfactory results, and others in turn do much harm. If you decide to use a truss you should choose one with a flat surface over the rupture, and not one that brings pressure in the opening thereby enlarging it. You did not state your age, but if you are under fifty; and in good health, I would strongly advise an operation. Surgery as it is done today is very satisfactory in cases of hernia. I can give you no other method of remedying the trouble.
