AYURVEDA PERSPECTIVE ON HIATAL HERNIA

A hernia is a protrusion of an organ through an opening. In this case, a hiatal hernia is a protrusion of the stomach through the diaphragm. The diaphragm is big dome-shaped muscle above stomach that separates the lungs and heart from the stomach , liver, and digestive viscera.

Each time you inhale, the diaphragm contracts, pushing down on digestive organs. Each time you exhale, the diaphragm relaxes. Since you breath roughly 26,000 times a day - the diaphragm contracts very often. The esophagus passes through the diaphragm and into the stomach.

For various reasons, among them shallow breath, the stomach may become adhered to the diaphragm, or protrude through. Shallow or difficult breathing due to pain may also be a sign of hiatal hernia. Other causes include pregnancy, obesity, digestive disorders that create undue pressure on abdominal organs, physical exertion and strain including persistent coughing, and smoking. A barium X-ray may be used to diagnose hiatal hernia.

There are two types of hiatal hernia, sliding and rolling. A sliding hernia is the most common, when the upper part of the stomach protrudes through the diaphragm. A sliding hernia is often small, and produces no symptoms, or intermittent symptoms. It often slips in and out of its correct position. A rolling hernia is rare but more dangerous. It can trap stomach above diaphragm, cutting off the blood supply and causing necrosis or tissue death, a serious condition.

The lower esophageal sphincter is a one way valve that lets food into the stomach. Under the conditions or hernia, it may not function properly, allowing acid from the stomach to escape into the esophagus, causing painful heartburn and acid reflux. Upon palpation with firm pressure, you may notice some discomfort in the upper left quadrant on the abdomen.

Surgery is often used to correct this condition, but it is not statistically successful. Chiropractors can sometimes reset the diaphragm into the proper position. You can also try a home technique while lying on your back with your knees bent or close to your chest. On the exhale push your finger under your left rib cage and pull the stomach down. Easy to digest foods reduce the chances of acid reflux. Avoid carbonated beverages and food that causes gas or bloating.

Balance Your Body with Diet, Herbs, & Lifestyles Having These Biocharacteristics

Everything you eat has an effect on your body, which Ayurveda categorizes in a simple and easy way, using biocharacteristics (gunas). Biocharacteristics are qualities (like cold and hot) that describe the effect a food or herb has on your body. Cooling foods like cucumber, decrease metabolism. Heating foods like chili pepper, stimulate your body and increase metabolism. For 'Hiatal Hernia', you should select foods with the following biocharacteristics. Individual results will vary, based on your body type and the root cause of your imbalance.

HOW TO ADDRESS ISSUES IN STAGE OF DISEASE #4

HIATAL HERNIA IS IN STAGE OF DISEASE #4 - TISSUE DISEASE

If you have symptoms in this category it means your imbalances have overwhelmed your body's resistance causing a full-fledged disease. Once imbalance reaches this stage it is more likely to cause acute or chronic conditions. You might be tempted to focus your attention on fighting symptoms in this category, but dismiss earlier warning signs of imbalance - i.e. symptoms in the stage 1 category. It is ideal to find and address the root causes weakening your system and remove them first. This ensures you are not adding fuel to the fire of disease. Once the root causes are removed, you can work on addressing the disease head on along with strengthening your body. This typically yields a quicker recovery and prevents recurrence. Ayurveda's preventative approach suggests you pay careful attention to every stage of disease development.

AVOID DIETS, LIFESTYLES & HERBS THAT AGGRAVATE THESE EFFECTS

According to Ayurveda, one or more of the following doshas and biocharacteristics may aggravate 'Hiatal Hernia'. If you have an excess of one of these doshas or biocharacteristics below, Ayurveda recommends reducing foods and lifestyle habits that aggravate them. Click on the biocharacteristic to learn what foods and lifestyle habits should be reduced.

Symptoms Tell A Story

The first step to healing is learning patterns from your symptoms. Symptoms are clues that reveal underlying imbalances. Symptoms show you where your body is weakened. Ultimately, all disease has a root in tissues too weak to defend itself. Ayurveda describes these patterns of weakness using doshas & biocharacteristics. If you notice a biocharacteristic or dosha appears next to many of your symptoms, it helps you establish a pattern that may be systemic.

HOW AYURVEDA WORKS

ARE YOU WONDERING HOW AYURVEDA CAN HELP YOU?

WHY IS AYURVEDA THE RIGHT SOLUTION?

Ayurveda strengthens the body while opposing disorders. It takes a holistic, systemic approach that looks at the whole body. Ayurveda shows how to interpret signs and symptoms of imbalance, and how to address them using diet, lifestyle adjustments, and herbs. It shows a person how to optimize their health on a continual basis. You can't take the doctor home with you, but you can take Ayurveda home with you. Ayurveda is the most advanced and easy to use home system for self healing.

HOW DOES AYURVEDA WORK?

Ayurveda starts by identifying your body type, which identifies certain tendencies in your body to get sick (as well as identifying your strengths). It uses body type to determine the likely root causes of your disorders. Next, Ayurveda analyzes the nature of your disorder. It fits all your signs and symptoms into a pattern, expressed as a combination of biocharaceristics (gunas). For example, you may have a heat disorder, a cold disorder, or an oily disorder, etc. This simple categorical approach shows you how to correct systemic imbalances and strengthen your body as a whole.

On Joyful Belly, we've created an extensive categorization of food so you can easily match food to your imbalanced biocharacteristics. By eating an optimal diet that balances your biocharacteristics, your whole body is strengthened and the conditions that created the disorder are removed. Once the root causes of the disease are removed, the disease lessens in strength or disappears altogether. Additional remedies - such as herbs and lifestyle practices - focused on the specific disorder, can greatly enhance your healing.

GET STARTED

To get started on your Ayurvedic journey, we first recommend that your find your body type by taking our free quiz. In Ayurveda, every solution is based on your unique body type, so by taking this quiz, you’ll get the best results.

About John Joseph Immel

About the Author

John Immel, the founder of Joyful Belly, teaches people how to have a healthy diet and lifestyle with Ayurveda biocharacteristics. His approach to Ayurveda is clinical, yet exudes an ease which many find enjoyable and insightful. John also directs Joyful Belly's School of Ayurveda, offering professional clinical training in Ayurveda for over 15 years.

John's interest in Ayurveda and specialization in digestive tract pathology was inspired by a complex digestive disorder acquired from years of international travel, as well as public service work in South Asia. John's commitment to the detailed study of digestive disorders reflects his zeal to get down to the roots of the problem. His hope and belief in the capacity of each & every client to improve their quality of life is nothing short of a personal passion. John's creativity in the kitchen and delight in cooking for others comes from his family oriented upbringing. In addition to his certification in Ayurveda, John holds a bachelor's degree in mathematics from Harvard University.

John enjoys sharing Ayurveda within the context of his Catholic roots, and finds Ayurveda gives him an opportunity to participate in the healing mission of the Church. Jesus expressed God's love by feeding and healing the sick. That kindness is the fundamental ministry of Ayurveda as well. Outside of work, John enjoys spending time with his wife and 7 kids, and pursuing his love of theology, philosophy, and language.
