Treat Symptoms Of Hiatal Hernia Naturally

Treat and Prevent Symptoms

Hiatal hernias can be caused by accident, injury, birth defect or by extra pressure caused by obesity or pregnancy. Hiatal hernias are also more common in people with GERD symptoms. A hiatal hernia occurs when part of the stomach and/or lower esophagus slides up through the hiatus in the diaphragm, the muscle wall separating the abdomen and chest cavity. Anything that causes an increase in pressure in the abdomen can cause a hernia, including lifting heavy objects, diarrhea or constipation, or persistent coughing or sneezing.

In some cases people don’t even know they have a hiatal hernia because they don’t experience any symptoms. In other cases, people can have severe and painful symptoms.

Symptoms include chest pain, heartburn, sore throat, hoarseness, difficulty swallowing, shortness of breath and regurgitation. Chest pain and heartburn symptoms are mainly due to the reflux of food and stomach acid into the esophagus that can cause a painful burning sensation or a feeling of a lump in the throat or chest. Over a prolonged period of time, it can cause asthma and erosion of the esophagus.

Fortunately symptoms of hiatal hernia can be treated successfully with homes cures and natural remedies in almost every instance. Natural remedies offer safe, affordable and readily available solutions compared to dangerous and expensive prescription drug alternatives.

Signs and Symptoms Of GERD

What Are The Symptoms of GERD And What Do I Need To Know To Take Back Control…

GERD Treatment

What are the Signs and symptoms of GERD?

GERD symptoms and acid reflux symptoms range from moderate to severe. In uncomplicated forms of GERD, the symptoms generally consist of heartburn, nausea, and regurgitation. In cases where there are complications associated with GERD, the conditions that can be seen include ulcer, strictures, Barrett’s’ Esophagus, cough and asthma, and inflammation of the throat and larynx.


Just like it sounds, heartburn is associated with a general burning sensation around the middle of the chest. It can also be located in the abdomen, back, and up into the neck. Additionally, the pain can act more like what would be typically experienced with angina (e.g., pressure and sharpness, rather than burning). Heartburn results when the acid that has refluxed back into the esophagus irritates the nerves in the esophagus.


Regurgitation occurs when refluxed liquids make their way back to the mouth. During regurgitation usually only small amounts of liquid return to the mouth, but at times food can appear. In addition, regurgitation is usually accompanied by an acidy taste in the mouth. With frequent regurgitation, the acid can actually begin breaking down tooth enamel.


Although uncommon in most GERD sufferers, for some nausea can be an intense and debilitating side effect of GERD. It is not unusual for GERD sufferers who experience nausea to vomit.

As complications of GERD become more severe, any of the following conditions can result…..


When acids reflux into the esophagus, inflammation and irritation occurs. When an area of the esophagus experiences prolonged or intense reflux, ulcers can form. An ulcer is a break in the lining of the esophagus. When severe, the ulcer and continued damage due to additional reflux can lead to bleeding which may require more serious medical attention.


When ulcers begin to heal, they often form scar tissue within the esophagus. Over time and with the appearance of multiple ulcers, the scar tissue can actually shrink the width of the esophagus. When this happens, it can become difficult for the afflicted to swallow food. Medical procedures, such as an endoscopy, may be used to remove stuck food and more involved surgery may be needed to widen the esophageal passage.
