Hiatal Hernia Natural Cure and 
Hiatal Hernia Diet

Hiatal hernia natural cure starts with learning more about exactly what is a hiatal hernia and figuring out the causes of hiatal hernia. We always want to find the cause of the ailment so we can work on the cure. 

What is hiatal hernia?

A hernia happens when an organ passes through the lining that normally holds it in place. This creates a little pocket. The upper part of the stomach slips or rolls upwards and pushes through the diaphragm wall. Part of it is now in the chest cavity.

When the stomach is in a state of shock it can slowly develop into a spasm of the stomach muscle. spasm results in the shortening of the muscle and in some cases even the muscle of the esophagus can spasm which causes it to shorten. This combined with a weakened diaphragm leads to a hiatal hernia.

The irritation may begin in childhood, however physical symptoms show up much later. a burning sensation shows that acidity is present.

Causes of hiatal hernia

Many doctors and medical texts will say that the cause of hiatal hernia is unknown or that it is genetic. But how can 50% of the population have a genetic problem? Often a hiatal hernia goes undiagnosed unless symptoms are severe. It can later show up on an X ray.

  • The main cause is a weakness in the diaphragm which has often been caused by poor diet.
  • An abundance of chemicals and lack of nutrients in the diet
  • Overweight and obesity
  • Stress

Hiatal hernia medications

Over time this results in inability to absorb protein or iron, which leads to osteoporosis and anemia. See more about this in acid reflux remedy.
