Homeopathy Medicine for Hiatus Hernia
A hiatal hernia occurs when the upper part of our stomach protrudes through the large muscle separating our abdomen and chest (diaphragm), which is why the condition is also known as a hiatus hernia.
In a hiatal hernia, the stomach pushes up through the diaphragm’s tiny opening (hiatus), where the esophagus normally passes before joining with the stomach.
Self-care measures or medications can typically relieve these symptoms, but a large hiatal hernia can cause problems by allowing food and acid to back up into the esophagus, resulting in heartburn.

- Food or liquids being thrown back into the mouth
- Acid reflux is a condition in which stomach acid enters the esophagus.
- Difficulty swallowing
- Chest or abdominal pain
- Shortness of breath

CAUSES OF HIATUS HERNIA
It is not always known why this occurs, but a hiatal hernia may be brought on by:
- Age-related changes in diaphragm
- Injury to the area, such as following trauma or particular procedures during surgery
- Having an incredibly long hiatus at birth
pressure that is applied repeatedly and vigorously to the surrounding muscles, such as when exercising, lifting heavy objects, coughing, vomiting, or straining to go to the bathroom.
