Greetings,
 
I have had my hiatal hernia for over 2 years now. I have pain in my chest, and shortness of breath as a result. Fortunately I had an excellent wholistic practioner advise me to consult with a chiropractor. This has helped somewhat, but I still have the problem. I have been on a supplementation program and this seems to be ever so slowly helping a bit. However, I am not 100% confident this is going to get rid of it. My shortness of breath comes when I get over tired or not enough rest usually. Today I lifted some heavy furniture and I had to stop for the pain in my chest, I hate this. Has anyone cured themselves through natural supplementation. Thanks folks for your input. By the way I am very pro chiropractic, I have been helped enormously for various other back related issues from a good chiropractor. I would recommend their services highly. However, you must try out several till you find a good one. Thanks.

Tammy thank you for the encouragment. I was diagnosed about 3 years with Anxiety/Panic Disorder. I went on 3 years of Remeron and had ever side affect in the book. I would go to sleep at night and bolt upright in bed at night unable to breathe. The hernia was extended up into my diaphram which squeezed it and restricted my breathing. Every night I would go to bed and just before I fell asleep my body said, wake up your not getting enough oxygen. I have now been treating the hernia and the painic attacks have gone and most of the anxiety attacks. I am dealing with shortness of breath now about 50% of the time instead of 90%. I still get the pains in my chest. I had heart palpitations as well but have treated these with supplementation, I only get the occassional palpitation. I had and EKG a couple of times over the past 3 years and they both turned out just fine. I thought I would tell my story so it may help others that read.

Thanks

Hi Tappers.

Hope you are doing better. I also have had many reaction to a lot of the meds and have ended up in the hospital. I also go to a holistic practitioner as well as my reg DR and they stay in close contact.. Just remember just because something is natural and even supplements does not mean it might not effect you in the wrong way. I know some you need to watch out for. Some can cause more acid and over amounts can cause more palpitations depending on what herbs and supps one takes. I know with me and a couple of others I know cant do the folic acid.

But must say I have had better luck with supps..... and herbs then anything else. Most times it does take longer for them to work then reg meds.

Same here Tappers had a EKG all it came out just fine.

Best of luck Tappers

Mia
