Homeopathic Treatment for Hiatus Hernia

A hiatus hernia in most cases does not display any symptoms. But when the symptoms arise, they usually include heartburn, acid reflux, eructations, water brash, pain in the chest or the abdomen, or a problem in swallowing. Other symptoms are heart palpitations and shortness of breath because of the pressure on the diaphragm. Homeopathic medicines for hiatus hernia are prepared from naturally occurring substances. The medicines are free from any toxic side effects. The symptoms arising from a hiatus hernia are controlled very effectively with these natural homeopathic remedies. The medicines that are useful for managing symptoms of a hiatus hernia are – Robinia, Natrum Phos, Carbo Veg, Abies Nigra, Lycopodium, Pulsatilla and Nux Vomica. Therefore, Homeopathic treatment for hiatus hernia is considered highly effective, safe and natural.

What is Hiatus Hernia?

A hiatus hernia refers to the protrusion of a part of the stomach into the chest cavity through the esophageal hiatus of the diaphragm. The diaphragm is a dome-shaped muscle separating the chest cavity from the abdomen. Esophageal hiatus is a hole or the opening in the diaphragm through which esophagus and vagus nerve pass. In a hiatus hernia, a part of the stomach slips up into the chest through this opening. The weakening of the muscles surrounding the hiatal opening is a major reason behind a hiatus hernia. In most cases, no cause is found for a hiatus hernia. Various factors increase the risk of developing a hiatus hernia. These risk factors include – being overweight, being above 50 years of age, an increased pressure in the abdomen (as during pregnancy, from coughing, lifting heavy weights or violent vomiting).

Best Homeopathic Treatment for Hiatus Hernia

1. Robinia and Natrum Phos – Wonderful Homeopathic Medicines for Hiatus Hernia with Heartburn and Very Sour Belching

Robinia and Natrum Phos are great homeopathic medicines for hiatus hernia when there is highly acrid and sour belching. The symptoms that indicate the use of homeopathic medicine Robinia are – intensely sour belching or vomiting, heartburn, regurgitation of acidic substances, and acidity that gets worse when lying down at night. A distended abdomen, pain in the stomach, and a burning sensation in the stomach, specially at night, are also symptoms. The symptoms indicative of using Natrum Phos are – sour belching, waterbrash, heartburn and sour vomiting, especially in the morning. Heaviness and pressure in the epigastrium and spitting of food in mouthfuls may also happen in such cases.

2. Carbo Veg – Homeopathic Medicine for Hiatus Hernia When Gastric Symptoms are Accompanied by Difficult Breathing

Carbo Veg is yet another excellent homeopathic remedy for managing gastric complaints associated with hiatus hernia. Carbo Veg works well in cases where there is difficulty in breathing along with gastric symptoms. A patient needing homeopathic medicine Carbo Veg complains of rancid, sour belching, waterbrash and difficulty in breathing. Belching starts after eating or drinking anything. Eating even the simplest kind of food causes sour belching. Along with this, fullness in the stomach is also felt. There is a distressing sensation in the stomach around half an hour after eating. Other accompanying symptoms are a contractive pain in the chest with a heavy, full and distended abdomen.

3. Abies Nigra – Another Well Indicated Homeopathic Medicine To Manage Complaints Related to Hiatus Hernia

Abies Nigra is one of the most useful homeopathic medicine for hiatus hernia management. The most characteristic feature to use homeopathic medicine Abies Nigra is a sensation of a lump or something hard lodged in the esophagus or cardiac end of the stomach. There is a feeling as if food is lying in the epigastrium. Waterbrash with a choked feeling in the throat is also present. Stomach pain after eating may also be felt. In some cases, a constricted sensation above the pit of the stomach can also occur.

4. Lycopodium, Pulsatilla and Nux Vomica – Few Other Significant Homeopathic Medicines for Management of Hiatus Hernia Symptomatically

Lycopodium, Pulsatilla and Nux Vomica are other important remedies used in the homeopathic treatment for hiatus hernia. They are very effective in dealing with gastric complaints related to the problem. Lycopodium offers help when the dyspepsia and heartburn worsens after eating food with starch like cabbage and beans. Homeopathic medicine Pulsatilla works well when the complaint gets worse after eating greasy and fatty food. Eating such food leads to heartburn and a tight feeling in the stomach. Nux Vomica is a top grade homeopathic medicine for gastric complaints like heartburn, waterbrash, sour and bitter risings, nausea and vomiting arising after eating highly spicy food, coffee, and alcoholic drinks.
