Hiatal Hernia Syndrome
Speaker: Steven Sandberg-Lewis, ND, DHANP
Sliding hiatal hernia is found in up to 40% of Americans (all ages) and even higher in those over age 70. This ability of the gastric cardia to ascend several centimeters into the mediastinum contributes to or triggers multiple symptoms. Some of these include anxiety, nausea, epigastric distress, poor appetite, reflux and even cardiac arrhythmias.
Reflex points and applied kinesiology can be used to test for the hiatal hernia syndrome in office. Manual medicine is often highly effective for rapidly reducing or eliminating the symptoms. After exercises and healthy breathing habits can prevent recurrence.
This webinar will show the diagnostic imaging and in-office testing that will allow you to successfully resolve this extremely common condition.
1) The participants will understand the common etiology, incidence and testing for hiatal hernia syndrome.
2) The participants will learn manual medicine protocols for gentle and effective hiatal hernia syndrome resolution.
3) The participants will appreciate the importance of muscular tone and breathing habits for the prevention of hiatal hernia syndrome..
