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.

    Patient female, 80+, had aortic valve replacement 15 years back. Regularly takes Allopathic medicines Clavilip 20/75 OD, Nicostar OD 10 mg OD, Dytor 10 mg OD. About one and half year back complained of severe burning sensation in food pipe with lack of desire to eat, Difficulty in eating fullness of stomach, regular constipation etc., had also developed trembling in hands and feet with associated weakness. On consultation the doctors diagnosed drug induced parkinsonism from long term intake of a medicine for gastric related problems for which treatment was given. Also, endoscopy was done and fungal infection was diagnosed for which antifungal medicines were given and patient felt relief after the treatment. F or last one year there is severe dryness of mouth which has extended to throat also. With another Endoscopy last year it was diagnosed as Hiatus Harnia for which no specific treatment has been given till date except Pentaprazole/Rabiprazole tablets for problem gas and fullness of stomach and liquid Antacids. Of late, It has become very difficult to eat and swallow any thing. There is always a feeling of food lying in the food pipe or the chest just above stomach. As patient doesn’t have jaws and suffers from dryness of mouth, semi slid food is given (chapati soaked in daal or rice with daal and subji mashed into paste) but still the patient is unable to eat. After one or two spoon of food the vomitting tendency starts. Gradually it has become difficult even to take liquid like tea, milk or juice. There is hardly any food intake and patient has become extremely thin and week in last one month. There is severe constipation. Often there is no bowel clearance for 10-15 days. Now a days We give 10-15 ml of castor oil every 10-12 days which leads to bowel clearance next day. Kindly suggest some remedy for immediate relief and food intake is improved.

  15. Dear Dr. Sharma

    For the last year or so I’m facing lot of acid reflux problem. I get frequently burps and have a feeling something struck in my oesophagus which is sour in taste. I have bloating also.

    When I met a homeopathy doctor in Hyd. He said it is hiatus hernia.

    Want to know from you if my problem can be permanently cured.


  16. It’s my personal experience sharing to all that please consider that there is no proper treatment in homeopathy it is only possible with Naturopathy and Ayurveda because of in naturopathy you can manage your diet and and make sure for fasting as well as in Ayurveda you can take such medications which can reduce the inflammation and swelling and further complications like hyperacidity heartburn etc.
