My mom is suffering from hiatus hernia, it is giving her heart palpitation?

Slippery Elm is the perfect antidote for suffering caused by Hiatal hernia. A paste of two tablespoons of slippery elm blended with camomile tea must be had in tiny quantities, quarter teaspoon per measure. This mixture must be had twice daily and sustained for more than 3 months. The irritation due to the affliction will gradually heal. In addition to the paste, camomile tea can be had on 3 - 4 times daily.

Onions are known to be major cause of the heartburn. Stay away from consuming raw onions. If onions have to be used in the preparation of meals, refrigerate the raw onions before they are sliced. The best way to eat onions is to cook them rather eaten raw. Drink small sips of water between meals and in-between bites. The stomach acids are washed away from the surface of the esophagus to the stomach with every sip between bites. Increased quantity of saliva also helps to neutralize the acid. For added consolation and better comfort, stay clear of drinking alcohol, smoking, catching a wink and arduous load lifting immediate after a meal. Post dinner drinks have the tendency to induce nighttime reflux, while smoking may counteract your lower esophageal function.
