Pregnancy Hiatal Hernia

By definition being pregnant is the same as a hernia. The bigger the fetus, the more pressure placed against other organs and the bigger the hernia.

A hernia is simply internal pressure against any organ.

A ‘hiatal’ hernia is when the pressure is directed up towards the opening in your diaphragm where your esophagus exits.

Any pressure in this area is called a hiatal hernia.

It usually happens because of a poor digestive system, which allows undigested food to burden the stomach and force it’s growing mass up into the hiatus (the opening).

Being pregnant, especially in the 3 trimester can have the same effect as chronic indigestion would have, except it’s from a growing baby instead of undigested food.

Now hopefully your hiatal hernia is caused only from your baby, I hope you don’t suffer from poor digestion too . . . although it has been known to happen.

The last thing you would ever want to do when pregnant is introduce any drugs into your system.

If you suspect acid reflux and indigestion as a factor for your hiatal hernia pain please don’t just start popping antacids.

Antacids are chocked full of aluminum and other materials that can harm your baby. Besides, you may not even have an over abundance of stomach acid, you may be suffering from a lack of gastric juice, which more often than not is the case.

The symptoms of too little stomach acid and too much are similar, as far as acid reflux goes.

Your baby needs a lot of nutrition and minerals to boot, plus if you are already deficient you need to know your baby now has biological priority.

So see a qualified health practitioner, get on a healthy diet and introduce some food support supplements.

I recommend food support supplements derived from RAW whole food sources.

To defeat acid reflux and indigestion you need easy to absorb (bioavailable) minerals and vitamins. You can’t even absorb vitamins without proper mineral balance and your enzymes need them too.

You also need plenty of minerals for make stomach acid . . . so focus on nurturing your cell health as the best way to stop hiatal hernia pain and grow a healthy baby.

You were born to heal,
