We know that a Hernia is the bulging of an organ or tissue through an abnormal opening in the body. These are most common in the abdomen, but they can also appear in the upper thigh, belly button, and groin areas.

A hiatal hernia, more commonly also called hiatus hernia, occurs when the upper part of your stomach pushes up through your diaphragm and into your chest region. The diaphragm is a large muscle that lies between your abdomen and chest. You use this muscle to help you breathe. Normally, your stomach is below the diaphragm, but in people with a hiatal hernia, a portion of the stomach pushes up through the muscle. The opening it moves through is called a hiatus.

You should know this:

It affects up to 65 percent of people by the time they’re 60 years old, according to the Esophageal Cancer Awareness Association. However, it is known to be very prevalent in young ages too. In fact in a particular study, it was found that the prevalence of hiatus hernia was upto 30% in asymptomatic patients. This means that about 30% of people who did not have any signs of hiatus hernia, or mild signs of acidity actually had a hiatus hernia without their knowledge. Now a hiatus hernia is not one which may be visible on the outside.

A hiatus hernia may be of several types – broadly classified into Type I, II, III, IV or names as sliding, esophageal or paraesophageal. This image will best make you understand what these are essentially:

Here is the Real Reason why Hiatal Hernia is caused


There are various causes associated with the formation of this specific type of hernia, let us now proceed to examining them in detail.

Hiatal Hernias are caused by a combination of muscle weakness and strain. This means that hernias can develop based on the lifestyle that you follow. Depending on its cause, a hernia can develop quickly or over a long period of time.

An unbalanced lifestyle will contribute to developing hernia the most over a prolonged period of time.

This sedentary lifestyle causes the imbalance of pH in the body which causes the organs to weaken. When the unbalanced lifestyle is continued over a period of time, it leads to stress on the organs – primarily the intestines. Coupled with acidity and imbalanced pH, a hiatal hernia develops.

Another cause is putting too much pressure (repeatedly) on the muscles around your stomach. This can happen when:

  • Coughing
  • straining during bowel movements
  • vomiting

But it’s not always like that.

Some people are also born with an abnormally large hiatus. This makes it easier for the stomach to move through it. Factors like obesity, aging, and smoking are also causes that lead to the triggering of a hiatal hernia. [ps2id id=’2′ target=”/]

This is what you should do if you think you have a Hiatal Hernia

Hiatal hernia is generally hard to detect, so you need to be aware about its types to know what you are suffering from. There are two main types of hiatal hernia which are as follows:

  • Sliding hiatal hernia

In this type of hernia, the stomach and diaphragm move into and out of your chest through the hiatus. These may not generally require treatment, since the lumps they form are small. These are often detected only when overall checkups are conducted.

  • Fixed hiatal hernia

This type of hernia isn’t as common. It’s also known as a Para-oesophageal hernia. In a fixed hernia, part of your stomach pushes through your diaphragm and stays there. There is a risk that blood flow to your stomach could become blocked. If that happens, it could cause serious damage and is considered a medical emergency.

How will you identify that you have a hiatal hernia?

Other hernias are easier to detect because the lumps are externally visible, but this in internal. Here’s what you should do.

Sometimes, hernias are not even detected until you opt for general medicinal checkups. It’s rare for even fixed hiatal hernias to cause symptoms. If you do experience any symptoms, they’re usually caused by stomach acid, bile, or air entering your esophagus. Common symptoms include:

  • heartburn that gets worse when you lean over or lie down
  • chest pain
  • trouble swallowing

Once you experience similar symptoms you should get an endoscopy done. If there is a hiatus hernia, it will show in an endoscopy.[ps2id id=’3′ target=”/]

These are the things which you should stay away from. No matter how much someone forces you!

In most cases, people take it up on themselves to heal their hiatal hernia naturally.

This involves a lot of hit and trial methods and a lot of searching the internet for valuable experiences and insights. However, the internet can be a boon and a curse.

While there are some symptoms which are actually helpful for healing a hiatal hernia, there are also those which are not effective one bit and offer incorrect advise to patients. Below we have listed some home remedies which are listed on the internet to be healthy to calm down a hiatal hernia, but are not helpful at all in the long run:

  • Apple cider vinegar

  • lemon juice


  • antacids

  • Cinnamon

  • slippery elm

The only sensible and proven remedy we found online was ALOE VERA. However aloe vera is not a solution and will keep the symptoms at bay and help in the healing of the hiatal hernia. It cannot be a standalone treatment.

Another thing that we have noticed a lot is that most medical practitioners prescribe chemicals such as omeprazole and esmeprazole for hiatus hernia. Kindly note that these chemicals cannot help in the treatment of hernia. They are meant to subdue the acid in the stomach to provide symptomatic relief. However, these medicines are to be consumed on a daily basis for years and once the consumption is stopped, the symptoms will start firing up again. They do not offer a solution. Apart from this, they are known to cause many other problems. Here a few of the most common known side effects:

Get emergency medical help if you have signs of an allergic reaction to omeprazole: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.

Call your doctor at once if you have:

  • severe stomach pain, diarrhea that is watery or bloody;
  • seizure (convulsions);
  • kidney problems–urinating more or less than usual, blood in your urine, swelling, rapid weight gain; or
  • symptoms of low magnesium–dizziness, confusion; fast or uneven heart rate; tremors (shaking) or jerking muscle movements; feeling jittery; muscle cramps, muscle spasms in your hands and feet; cough or choking feeling.

Common omeprazole side effects may include:

  • stomach pain, gas;
  • nausea, vomiting, diarrhea; or
  • headache.

This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects.

But is surgery the answer?

In many cases you will find that the hiatal hernia relapses overtime. Al the more, surgeries cannot help reduce the acid levels and the patient suffers more in the initials stages post surgery. He is prescribed heavy antacid, antibiotics and vitamins which cause more acidity in the long run. You can find that someone who had an sliding hiatal hernia got operated and later developed a paraesophaegal hernia. The reason being the internal swelling is still there. Unless you fix the problem from within, the hernia will keep coming back eventually. You can read the full article on this here – Is surgery really the answer to a hernia?

You can also read about cases who got operated for hernia and how they are suffering from new problems here – Why is there pain even after hernia surgery ?

You should do this to get relief from hiatal hernia pain 

The first thing you need to do is to keep strict timings about food and sleep. This means that your meal timings should be fixed. Secondly, you should avoid items that may cause acidity. Usually citrus fruits should be avoided and anything which is difficult to digest too. You should switch to a high fiber diet to allow smooth bowel movements and reduction in acidity. Your dinner should be before 730PM and breakfast within 1 hour of waking up. Lastly, stop consuming coffee or tea and switch to green tea. This will give relief to the hernia within a couple of hours. We would advise you not to take antacids unless it is absolutely necessary as this is a temporary solution and only worsens cases in the long run apart from the long term negative side effects.[ps2id id=’5′ target=”/]

Hiatal Hernia Treatment without Surgery

Yes, there is a proper course of action that you can resort to for hiatal hernia treatment without surgery. As seen above, to tackle hernia, we need to tackle the reason that is causing it i.e. the pH imbalance and the inflammation of the intestines. Two medicines, Hernica and Acidim, which are offered by Grocare India, have been especially effective in the treatment of hernia.

Once the system becomes healthy, the swelling of the intestine reduces, and the inflamed portion regains its original shape. No lump is observed. This is a natural process and changes the tendency of your body. That is why the treatment is 6 months long for hiatal hernia treatment without surgery. But this way, once healed, you cannot get hernia again because you have taken care of the problem internally. However, you have to ensure that you maintain a healthy lifestyle – because a medicine can help you internally, only if you follow a regulated diet plan.

Here is How the medication works

Hernica strengthens the intestines and abdominal wall naturally by enhancing digestion, thereby reducing inflammation of the intestine and thus the pressure on abdominal wall.

Acidim acts by removing free radicals from intestines and also acts as a catalyst in the entire healing process by maintaining optimum pH levels in the body. It is important to have a balanced pH level in the body to prevent the onset of future infections.

As a result, the intestines slowly return back to their position, thus healing various forms of Hernia. As they address the root cause of the problem, chances of recurrence are minimized and even eliminated in the due course of the treatment. The medication is equally effective for post surgical complications. After cure, Hernia does not redevelop once medication is stopped.
