Abstract: Hernia’s name was recorded as early as in Hanshu Yiwenzhi, and also in Huangdi Neijing, there are nearly 20 articles about the disease. Because the discussions were very messy, they have resulted in different understandings, diagnoses and therapies to hernia in later generations. However, if carefully combing the original text of Huangdi Neijing, the characteristics of hernia can be found as follows: the locations of hernia are commonly in the liver meridian and kidney meridian. There are two main pathogeneses of hernia, one is qi derangement resulting in internal stagnation, and another is cold congealing. Therefore the therapeutic methods for hernia should include replenishing fire origin,and regulating and tonifying liver and kidney,or soothing liver and regulating qi,or warming the interior and dissipating cold,and moving qi and eliminating dampness.

Key words: Huangdi Neijing, hernia, Liver Meridian, cold
