My hiatus hernia

Posted by

Dear Dr. Stoll I ahve been using ginger root to help my Hiatial Hernia for almost two months now with only minimal relief. I am still taking my medications--zantac 150 at night and Prevacid 30 mg every morning. I have had the hernia since I was 19 and now I'm 34. It has been getting worse for about the last year and I am so frustrated. If you have any additional recomendations to help me get out of using 4 pillows every night I would really appreciate it. Also my husband has been following you book for his ulcerated colitis he was previously eating no carbs at all but you have listed modified carbs. For how long should this be maintained? And how come he is allowed some carbs on your plan? Thank You

I am not a doctor, and I am certainly not Dr. Stoll... but I have been in contact with at least 100 people who have corrected the hiatus hernia with simple chiropractic manipulation.

If you do not have a trusted practitioner, there is a page linked below which has a number of sites, including lists of chiropractors by state and locality. Perhaps this will help you to locate one.

If your diet does not agree with you, the situation will return. Stress can also worsen or initiate this condition. Lack of appropriate exercise and work which requires a sitting or crouching posture for long periods are not conducive to your healing.

Please tell us more about your situation, your usual foods, alcohol intake, and so forth (if you feel comfortable doing so).

Hi, Maureen

My hiatal hernia was starting to act up very badly a couple months or so ago. I did something Doc Kim told me about and then went to a chiropractor silled in kinsieology (spl?) I haven't had ANY problems since. One treatment was all I needed after over 20 years of suffering.

Listen to Mairead.:-)

Hi, Maureen.

If the GRJ doesn't give symptomatic relief in 3 weeks it is not going to. What have you done about the causes of your HH in the meantime?

SR is, by far (in the long run), the most important thing to do for UC, not diet. Diet is only important from a clinical ecological viewpoint (ALLERGY--due to the LCS cause).

Listen to Mairead (Thanks, Mairead!)

It COULD be that your HH is more structural than most and so surgery would be a valid option. That would NOT obviate your need to deal with the causes but might help with resolving the symptoms.

Let us know what happens.

Surgery seems so radical. I'm only 34 isn't that a little young for this type of surgery. Should I just stop taking the GRJ and is there anything else you could recomend I try short of surgery?

I am a hairdresser so I eat on the run with 2 small kids the only tiem I remember having no pain from the hernia is during both pregnancies. I do exercise 4 times a week at the gym I do drink wine 2 or 3 days a week. I do try to stay away from chocolate and tomato sauce when I am having alot of pain but about 8 months ago we had a family crisis and my hernia "wen't out" and since then I have only had a handful of good night sleeps without the 4 pillows. I am very frustrated but I really don't want to have surgery--any suggestions? And what's this with the chiropractor?

Doc what did you mean what am I doing about the causes of the hernia--like tamato sauce and chocolate? And about the UC for my husband what does SR mean? Are you saying that diet is only a temperary reliever of the problem?

Hi, Maureen.

Surgery IS radical and is a very major surgery at that for this problem.

SR, Chiropractic manipulation, Rolfing & dealing with LGS are the only things I know to help.

Stop the GRJ since it has not helped within 3 weeks.

Maureen,

To be asking such questions, you must not have gone to the glossary or read any of the archives I suggested: SR, LGS, bracing, etc.

Please do not ask me to retype it all over again. After all, this is YOUR problem and you are going to have to put in the effort to learn what to do and THEN, actually DO it.

My job is opening doors. Yours is walking through those doors.

A chiropractor can alleviate the hiatus hernia with a simple technique

To never experience it again, appropriate diet and stress reduction are key.

You say, "about 8 months ago we had a family crisis and my hernia "went out"" -- there is the answer. That additional stress was the last straw.

To get proper nourishment and make a stress-relief practice part of your schedule are critically important -- for your hernia, and for your kids.
