Resource for people with hiatal hernia

Posted by Happygal [2062.23] on June 02, 2005 at 10:12:50:

Hi,

When searching the web looking for the cause and cure for my digestive woes, I came across a website that gives some self-help suggestions for healing it! It sounds very practical and useful. The website address is below.

Oh, actually there are two websites and I can only link to one. Here is the other one: http://www.patblocknd.com/stomach.htm.

I hope these websites help some of you who have this condition.

Best wishes,
Jan

Thank you Jan.

"The causes of a hiatal hernia are speculative and unique to each individual"

I bet I can tell you what caused mine without much "speculation". It's probably not a usual cause though. I'm pretty sure that mine was caused by pushing on my stomach to get rid of reflux acid.

Hi Happygal,

This is a great source. I've wondered but never seen my symptoms connected with hiatal hernia but they definately are on this site. Guess I should go to the doc. now.

Thanks.

PS. I was really worried about my shallow breathing the last few days and couldn't understand why it seemed my stomach was involved. I was beginning to think it was my imagination and the worry was making it harder to breathe. But now I see it's connected.

Hi D,

Mine wasn't discovered until I had an ERCP for another problem. I had had ultrasounds too.

I had the ultrasound but they were mainly thinking of my gallbladdar at the time and it was ok. That was enough tests and time away from work for me so I didn't go through with the upper GI.

That was years ago and it wasn't as much of a problem then. I could handle the symptoms. It's nothing I can't handle now but I need to be sure that's really what it is.

You still have stomach issues even though on wellness?

Hi Steven,

I don't have a hiatal hernia, but the advice seemed so useful I wanted to share it with others.

Yes, I have had digestive issues and now it is obvious why -- the bracing kept my GI tract bound up and it needed to be massaged!

Remember, the 3LS is the FOUNDATION for being healthy. It doesn't solve all problems -- it creates the best potential for healing and does heal many things. However, many people will still need to look for other things to become completely well.

It's amazing to me how bracing (tension due to stress) can screw up so many functions of the body.

Best wishes,
Jan

Well, I'm of the opinion that if the word "cure" is being used, it should solve all problems.

Hi Steven,

Remember, chronic problems typically have more than one cause. There is no one thing that usually resolves chronic symptoms -- it usually takes a number of approaches, "cures", or methods.

Best wishes,
Jan
