Wondering if anyone has seen, or tried, this hiatal hernia "treatment"? I hesitate to call it treatment, but I don't know what else to call it. I've also seen it called the "warm water fix". It's supposed to help the hernia move back down past the diaphragm somewhat. Here it is:
First thing in the morning, you drink a glass or bottle of water. Then, raise up on your tip toes and drop down quickly onto your heels/feet. You do this 10 times give or take. Then, raise your arms over your head and take short quick breaths for 15 seconds or so. Theoretically/supposedly the weight of the water might help push the stomach back down.
I've seen this method mentioned online on a whole bunch of sites. Dr Jockers is one of them...and like I said, I'm wondering if there's any validity to it, or if anyone has tried it? I certainly know to take anything seen online with a grain of salt, but it's an interesting theory.
All I'm asking is...if anyone has heard of this or tried it...that's all.
