In brief: None

No professionally accepted " holistic treatment for inguinal hernia " is available except wearing a truss as a temporary means.
Surgery is only way to prevent complications.

None. A hernia is a surgical issue. The only treatment for a surgical diease is surgery.

In brief: Probably not.

A hernia is a physical disruption of the abdominal musculature.
If getting bigger or if causing pain you should fix it. I not, you may be able to safely watch it. Especially if it has been stable for years. Don't pay for any magic creams, electronic devices or copper bracelets that promise to fix it.
