What is a Hiatal Hernia and how to heal it naturally?
To tackle hiatal hernia, we need to tackle the reason that is causing it i.e. the pH imbalance and the inflammation of the digestive system. Xembran, Hernica and Acidim have been especially effective in hiatal hernia treatment without surgery.
Hernica strengthens the intestines and abdominal wall naturally by enhancing digestion. Acidim acts by maintaining optimum pH levels in the body and regulating acid production. Xembran kills H pylori and other bacteria in the stomach which are known to be a major cause of hiatal hernia.
Once the system becomes healthy, the swelling of the stomach reduces and the inflamed portion regains its original shape. However, you have to ensure that you maintain a healthy lifestyle during the treatment– because a medicine can help you internally, only if you follow a regulated diet plan.

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.
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:
Why is Hiatal Hernia Caused?
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.
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 digestive system. 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 due to:
- straining during bowel movements
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.
Types of Hiatal Hernia
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.
What NOT to do:
In most cases, people take it up on themselves to heal their hiatal hernia naturally.
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
- slippery elm
The only sensible remedy is 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.
A lot is that most medical practitioners prescribe chemicals such as omeprazole and esmeprazole for hiatus hernia. These drugs cannot help in the treatment of hiatal hernia. They are designed 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. Apart from this, they are known to cause many other problems. Here a few of the most common known side effects:
- Difficulty breathing
- Swelling of your face lips, tongue, or throat
- stomach pain, gas
- nausea, vomiting, diarrhea; or
Is surgery the Solution for Hiatal Hernia?
In many cases you will find that the hiatal hernia relapses post surgery. All the more, surgeries cannot help reduce the acidity. 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?

Hiatal Hernia Treatment without Surgery
To tackle hernia, we need to tackle the reason that is causing it i.e. the pH imbalance and the inflammation of the digestive system. Xembran, Hernica and Acidim have been especially effective in hiatal hernia treatment without surgery.
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.
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.
Xembran is a herbal bacteriostatic and bactericidal action which means it stops growth as well as kills H pylori in the stomach which is known to be a major cause for hiatal hernia. Xembran works along with the body’s defense mechanism to eliminate the harmful bacteria and does not have any side effects. Acidim and xembran together also help to repair and restore the stomach lining.
As a result, the stress on the stomach and other organs reduces overtime, and the stomach slowly return back to their position, thus healing various forms of Hiatal Hernia. As they address the root cause of the problem, chances of recurrence are minimal. The medication is equally effective for post surgical complications.
