What is a Hiatal Hernia?

The problem is called a hiatal hernia. “Hiatus” means hole or opening; a “hernia” is when something is protruding through an opening that it shouldn’t. You may have heard of abdominal or inguinal hernias where someone’s intestines are pushing through an opening or tear in their abdominal muscles.


Hiatal Hernia is Frequently Undiagnosed or Misdiagnosed

The stomach should be found below the diaphragm. In a hiatal hernia the stomach is elevated and pushing up against the diaphragm or, in more severe cases, the top of the stomach itself, has stretched wide the opening as it has come up above the level of the diaphragm.

When severe, a hiatal hernia requires surgery to pull the stomach back below the diaphragm and sew up the enlarged opening. Such severity is not common, fortunately. What we most often see with patients is a mild scenario, and therein lies the problem. When severe, no one is going to miss the need for surgery, although outcomes are typically poor, but when the condition is mild, it’s much more difficult to diagnose by conventional methods. And despite its milder intensity as regards the degree of herniation, that negate the intensity of the symptoms the patient feels.  Symptoms are often severe and debilitating for even mild or subclinical hiatal hernias.

More About the Syndrome

The practitioners at Root Cause Medical Clinic have over 35 years of experience of successfully treating hiatal hernia. The term hiatal hernia syndrome is used because there are often multiple factors that have created the hiatal hernia.

The multitude of symptoms that can occur with hiatal hernia syndrome arise from a physical/mechanical/muscular condition affecting the diaphragm combined with pressure being created in the abdominal cavity from gas, bloating, constipation, pressure buildup, and obesity. It may be some or it may be all of the above factors that contribute to creating a hiatal hernia.

This condition is not just an esophagus/stomach problem, but it is also a muscular issue with the diaphragm. Knowledge of how to identify, diagnose and treat what actually creates a hiatal hernia leads to the ability to obtain great success in the treatment of this disorder.

Hiatal Hernia Symptoms

A trained Functional Medicine doctor approaches the problem by evaluating and treating the cause of increased pressure in the abdomen. The pressure can be caused by:

  • poor diet
  • excessive gas
  • constipation
  • incomplete digestion of foods
  • malabsorption
  • food allergies or sensitivities
  • infections, bacterial or parasitic
  • yeast overgrowth
  • and more

When present, these factors can be the root cause of the pressure and inflammation that causes a hiatal hernia.

Patient Success Story of Michael

Ended up going to the ER a whole bunch of times throughout the year with all the symptoms I was having.

High blood pressure, shortness of breath, chest pain, high cholesterol... I had a lot of things wrong with me. The initial diagnosis was a hiatal hernia through an endoscopy but was dismissed at the cause for my problems.

The doctor told me to take a pill... there was basically no treatment.

We're all working together to solve the problem instead of a traditional doctor where , "this is what they think you have... take this pill and if you feel back... take a stronger dose."

With your guidance and your help, it just helps me to be the better version of myself. Right now, it's been helping me.

Patient Success Story of Floyd

Pain... I've been trying to figure this out for 2 years.

I couldn't breathe, whenever I would exert myself my breathe would cut off.

I went from doctor to doctor to doctor and they couldn't tell me anything. I thought three times I was having a heart attack. They gave me a pill and sent me home.

There were clothes I couldn't wear that I can now.

I lost weight and I'm feeling better. I have my breathe now.


Patient Success Story of Brad

The functional medicine approach, they got to the cause of what was my stomach trouble... among other things.

They discovered I had a hiatal hernia which then sent me to the physical therapy department and chiropractic.

It was a great improvement in all areas. Physical and internal.

The most of all, it's good to be able to eat food again and not have the constant digestive problems that I had.

I would definitely recommend Root Cause to other people. It's worth it, no matter what the cost.

Alice C.

Not only has my health improved significantly in 4 months, but my perspective on functional medicine has changed my life.

For years I could not find a doctor who took the time to really know “my” body from a holistic view.

If you are someone who wants to dig deeper and know what is causing your unpleasant symptoms, please do yourself a favor and call them for a consultation. It is worth your time. The entire staff is friendly and efficient to ensure you’re well being.

Patient Success Story of
Stella B.

I was in an exercise class and I nearly passed out. I wasn’t able to eat. I was vomiting almost nightly and aspirating.

Nothing has worked and every time I’ve gone back to the doctor, just more pills... 34 plus pills a day.

I came here, it was amazing from day one. Then within, I would say the first week, I didn’t have acid reflux in the middle of the night. I wasn’t vomiting and I would say I didn’t throw up anymore at night. We started the elimination died and I could eat again, and I actually wanted to eat again.

I feel amazing and I feel like I have my life back. It has just been absolutely amazing.
