Do you sometimes experience a sharp cramp-like pain just below the rib cage? You may or may not know that you have a hiatal hernia. Do you often have sleepless nights with heartburn and indigestion? GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) may be your problem. Alginic acid is a compound usually extracted from seaweed and added to antacids to treat symptoms of GERD caused by a hiatal hernia.
Do you notice that when you cough, do strenuous exercise, or just laugh intently that you get a painful cramp below the rib cage? I experience it in fits of laughter. I also get the pain if I drink fluids (like beer or soda) with a spicy meal like Mexican food.
The pressure from these activities can cause the stomach to push through the opening for the esophagus, the hiatus, resulting in a hiatal hernia.
Can you rid yourself of this painful condition?
Yes, you can. You can permanently cure these conditions within two months. You can enhance your digestive and intestinal health, achieve lasting freedom from most digestive disorders, and get a peaceful night’s sleep. All this can be achieved holistically without expensive drugs and risky surgery.
How does Hiatal Hernia cause GERD?
This condition occurs in one of two ways or both. It can occur when the stomach pushes up through the opening in the diaphragm (the hiatus); or, when the valve in the esophagus, the LES (lower esophageal sphincter), fails.
The failure of the valve may result from a weakening of the surrounding tissues and can be aggravated by obesity and/or smoking. The hernia is the stomach protruding through the LES (lower esophageal sphincter) and the hiatus.
With this protrusion of the stomach into the esophagus, the stomach’s bile, called the refluxate, enters the delicate lining of the esophagus. This in turn causes heartburn or the unpleasant regurgitation of bile into the throat. Alginic acids added to antacids give you temporary relief.
Can Hiatal Hernia be cured?
If severe, it may require surgery, you can find immediate and permanent relief from GERD, heartburn, and acid reflux. No amount of antacids or alginic drugs can cure them. Most hiatal hernias are not severe enough to warrant surgery.
The link then between hiatal hernias and GERD as you can see is a physical one.
There is hope.
You can eliminate your chest pain and that burning sensation. You can get rid of burping, belching and flatulence.
