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. Homeopathy 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 remedies. Homeopathic Treatment for Hiatus Hernia is useful for managing symptoms with medicines like Robinia, Natrum Phos, Carbo Veg, Abies Nigra, Lycopodium, Pulsatilla and Nux Vomica.

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 – For Heartburn and Very Sour Belching

Robinia and Natrum Phos are great medicines for hiatus hernia when there is highly acrid and sour belching. The symptoms that indicate the use of 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 – When Gastric Symptoms are Accompanied by Difficult Breathing

Carbo Veg is yet another excellent 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 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 – To Manage Complaints Related to Hiatus Hernia

Abies Nigra is one of the most useful medicine for hiatus hernia management. The most characteristic feature to use 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 – For Management of Hiatus Hernia Symptomatically

Lycopodium, Pulsatilla and Nux Vomica are other important remedies used in the 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.

    Greetings. How can I get help with a hiatal hernia? I’m confused over which remedy matches my symptoms. I saw a chiropractor the day this happened and he was a little over zealous in crossing my arm over my chest and put way too much pressure on upper body. I felt pain immediately and told him that it hurt. He told me to put ice on it. The pain eased up but within 3 hours it started to hurt in my chest and got progressively worse within a short time. The very next day I could not even get up from a lying position to a seated one. I had to carefully roll myself into the floor and get into a sitting position. This could possibly be a coincidence but I don’t think so! The pain has improve since this happened about four weeks ago but I could barely eat and lost about 10 pounds. I am now back up to 109 ponds. I have a lot of gastric pain, heartburn (baking soda helps that temporarily) I have pains in my abdomen and all through my torso. The pain that was under my left side ribs is a lot better but still there. I have a cough but have difficulty bring the phlegm up, which is clear and not bitter or sour, because I gag. I also have weakness from the effort it takes just to walk up a hill. I was in good physical condition before this happened so I know my muscles are weaker. I have shortness of breath with too much exertion. Please advise me.
