In this video, you are going to learn techniques that release hiatal hernia, and reduce acid reflux and silent reflux symptoms such as asthma and heart palpitations. A hiatal hernia is when your stomach bulges up into your chest through an opening in your diaphragm, the muscle that separates the two areas. The opening is called the hiatus, so this condition is also called a hiatus hernia. There are two main types of hiatal hernias: sliding and paraesophageal. Ordinarily, your esophagus (food pipe) goes through the hiatus and attaches to your stomach. In a sliding hiatal hernia, your stomach and the lower part of your esophagus slide up into your chest through the diaphragm. Most people with hiatal hernias have this type. A paraesophageal hernia is more dangerous. Your esophagus and stomach stay where they should be, but part of your stomach squeezes through the hiatus to sit next to your esophagus. Your stomach can become squeezed and lose its blood supply. Your doctor might call this a strangulated hernia. Many people with hiatal hernia don’t notice any symptoms. Others may have: Heartburn from gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) Chest pain Bloating Burping Trouble swallowing Bad taste in your mouth Upset stomach and vomiting Backflow of food or liquid from your stomach into your mouth Shortness of breath If you don’t have any symptoms, you might not need treatment. If you have acid reflux, your doctor may suggest medications to treat those symptoms, including: Antacids to weaken your stomach acid Proton pump inhibitors or H-2 receptor blockers to keep your stomach from making as much acid Prokinetics to make your esophageal sphincter – the muscle that keeps stomach acid from backing up into your esophagus -- stronger. They also help muscles in your esophagus work and help your stomach empty.
