Baking soda is a natural antacid. It can provide quick relief from heartburn, the most common symptom of hiatal hernias.

  1. Mix ½ teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water.
  2. Drink it immediately.
  3. Repeat as needed, but avoid drinking this solution in excess.

Note: Avoid this remedy if you have high blood pressure.

8. Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is one of the best natural treatments for digestive problems caused by a hiatal hernia. It soothes the inner lining of the intestines and reduces abdomen pain. It also controls heartburn by reducing inflammation.

Drink ¼ cup of aloe vera juice about 20 minutes before eating a meal.

Note: Do not use more than 2 tablespoons of aloe vera gel to make the juice. It may cause diarrhea.

  1. I have been taking cider vinegar and honey and omeprazole and gaviscone for my hiatus hernia could they all be making my bowel motions come fast

  2. Why does it say, don’t eat spicy foods!? When there has been study’s to show that hot peppers have cured ulcers. my Aunt had ulcers and cured them eating them as a matter of fact. Research it yourself! 🙂

    1. Meg, I agree! What I did was ‘copy and paste’ to a new document. You can’t copy the portion with the moving pictures, but you can copy the instructions which are below them.

  3. i HAVE A SMALL HIATUS HERNIA, i TAKE A 20MG PUMP INHIBITOR, I CANNOT DRINK TEA COFFEE OR ANY BEVERAGE ONLY WATER WITH A LITTLE MILK ADDED…IF I DID DRINK TEA MY TUM WOULD BE SO VERY SORE, ANYONE HAVE THIS & ANY ANSWERS PLEASE THANKS SO MUCH

    1. I too have the same problem.I was addicted to tea.Before 3-4 months ago i left drinking tea and coffee in morning .Now i don’t have acid reflux problem instead I take warm water on the bed in morning instead of bed tea and also i do some yoga asans for the stomach.Before 3-4 months i was taking Somprez d-40 mg for acidity.

  4. After drinking a large glass of warm water, I go on my trampoline and jump up and down for a 100 count. Do more if you can. Increase to several times a day. This has relieved the pressure pain of the hiatal hernia..

  5. I got diagnosed years ago with one of these when I was being treated for h.pylori as well. Up to now I had done pretty good with it so much so that I forgot all about it. Well a few days ago it started acting up and pain has been severe. I spent the last 4 days straight being woken up by this severe gnawing pain in my stomache and the worse nausea of my life. I went out today and brought Apple Cider vinegar and put a teaspoon in 16 ounces of water it seems to be helping relieve the pain some. I will also try these exercises.

  6. This was very helpful. I already do the apple cider vinegar also the Amish acid reflux drink also do yoga. I will add the massage…I have noticed it’s getting worse. I’m starting to eat smaller meals that helps.
    Thank you

  7. Very helpful, common-sense information … thank you! I will try to add these suggestions to my regimen. Any way I could print this? Of all things, water gives me the worse heartburn than anything else! I have to be very careful when I drink water, and to sip it slowly throughout the day, and even then, it gives me terrible heartburn. Anybody else have this problem? Oddly enough, I can drink tea, coffee, etc. with no problem, but water, wow. Strange. I have taken PPIs for well over 20 years now and have discontinued them, it’s been 2 weeks now, and the rebound heartburn has been unbearable. Worse I’ve ever had. I’m trying a variety of natural treatments … it’s been a looooong 2 weeks. I welcome any further suggestions. I read about the surgery, and it sounds horrible. Have yet read a positive response. Thanks for listening!

    1. My ENT said never quit PPI’s cold turkey. You need to ween yourself off of them.
      I suffer from LPR (silent reflux). I have had this terrible, terrible cough. Nothing would
      control it. After 30 minutes with this wonderful lady, my cough has subsided 80%. Amazing,
      It’s the first I have heard of it.

    2. Yes Christina! I have a small hiatal hernia. Water sometimes, not always, gives me terrible heartburn. No doctors have ever believed this though. Another thing is If I am talking or laughing in a social situation I will suddenly get bloated, and yurpy and sometimes feel like I am going to throw up but in the end it’s usually an extremely long burp that resolves it. Does anyone know what THAT is? I eat and drink slowly, smaller than normal portions and it still happens.

  8. I find anything too hot or too cold starts the acid flowing. I only drink room temp water and let my coffee cool down before I drink it warm rather than hot. Chewing a non mint gum helps, too.
