In brief: What is natural. ?

Hernia is a physical defect in the muscle.
It can be closed with surgery. Is that natural for you ? No other real options.

In brief: No

A hernia is a structural defect.
It can only be repaired. The most natural repair is a tissue repair (using only the patient's native tissues), but often these have a higher failure rate. Many surgeons use mesh that can be of animal or human origin. There are also prosthetic manufactured mesh products. The type of mesh depends on the type of repair and hernia location, and patient specific items.
