Natural Heartburn & Acid Reflux Relief at Godo Chiropractic
A Hiatal Hernia occurs when part of your stomach pushes upward through your diaphragm. Your diaphragm normally has a small opening (hiatus) through which your food tube (esophagus) passes on its way to connect to your stomach. The stomach can push up through this opening and cause a hiatal hernia. Bad heartburn or abdominal pain can often be associated with this affliction.
Treating Acid Reflux with Applied Kinesiology
The diaphragm is the large muscle that separates the thorax from the abdomen. It wraps around the esophagus and is the major support structure that can be strengthened and used to help prevent the reflux. Testing is done to determine abnormal functioning of the diaphragm. Then treatment is directed at normalizing its function.
This is followed by exercises to strengthen any weak structures. Nutritional work to augment the body’s own natural anti-inflammatories as well as stimulating healing of the damaged structures is undertaken. Balancing of any imbalances in the normal acid / alkaline systems of the body are also tested for and corrective measures undertaken. Other lifestyle modifications are used to prevent or minimize exacerbating the condition. A specific program for your needs is created.
