Hiatus Hernia – Cause and Prevention

Applied Kinesiology is a very successful method of diagnosis, enabling practitioners to detect a tendency toward a hiatus hernia condition, often long before it could be diagnosed by normal medical means, by which time the damage is bad enough to require surgery.

The stomach lies below the diaphragm and the oesophagus, which carries food from the mouth to the stomach, goes through a muscular gap (hiatus) in the diaphragm, which surrounds the oesophagus.

Causes of hiatus hernia include eating meals which are too large for the stomach to hold and eating slumped over the table, with shoulders forward and so creating a C curve in the back. This causes the stomach to fill to excess, so that the top is forced upwards.

As the stomach is pushed up, its neck initially stretches the gap in the diaphragm through which the oesophagus passes.  In extreme cases, where this stretching persists over a long period of time, it can cause tearing of the opening and the upper part of the stomach can enter the chest, a hiatus hernia.

So how to prevent this?

  • Watch your posture while eating – sit up straight and tall.  Don’t eat “TV dinners” on soft chairs, where your knees are higher than your hips.
  • Restrict the size of meals.  Better to eat 5 small meals a day rather than a big one.  This does not cause weight gain if the meals are nutritionally balanced.
  • Supplements recommended by an Applied Kinesiologist, discovered with Kinesiology testing procedures.

This problem can get so bad that surgery is required, but following this advice and having regular, routine Kinesiology balancing, means this need not happen.
