Hiatal Hernia

This is a condition where the stomach protrudes above the diaphragm.  This then leads to problems of acid reflux.

There is a simple treatment for this:

  1. Stand on a stool.
  2. Drink a large glass of water.
  3. Jump down to the floor.

The weight in the stomach will pull the stomach down and hopefully out of the diaphragm.

If it doesn't work:

  • You could try again with more water or higher jump.
  • You may need massage to pull down the stomach (many chiropractors know this)
  • You may not have the problem.  The diagnosis is often a guess.

The underlying problem is often a sloppy diaphragm from improper breathing habits.  Learn how to treat this problem here.
