A hiatus hernia occurs when the stomach protrudes upward into the chest, passing through an opening in the diaphragm, the muscular barrier that separates these two regions.

A 49-year-old male patient visited our clinic approximately two months ago, seeking assistance for persistent digestive issues that had been troubling him for several years. His symptoms included continuous bloating, a sense of fullness, acid reflux, limited food intake capacity, constant feelings of satiety, sleep disturbances stemming from these discomforts, and incomplete bowel movements. Additionally, he experienced chronic fatigue, sluggishness, and difficulty concentrating.

After conducting a thorough case assessment, our medical team suspected a hiatus hernia as the underlying cause. Consequently, we recommended a Video Capsule Endoscopy (VCE) examination, which subsequently confirmed the diagnosis.

Upon examination, the patient presented with pronounced abdominal bloating and a coated tongue, and his Body Mass Index (BMI) measured at 30.5. His blood pressure, however, remained within the normal range.

In response to the diagnosis, our experienced physician devised a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to address the patient’s specific symptoms. Remarkably, within just one week of initiating treatment, the patient reported significant improvements. His symptoms of acidity and heartburn markedly decreased, he experienced a surge in energy levels, and his appetite gradually returned. Furthermore, his sleep quality substantially improved.

Throughout the two-month treatment period, the patient diligently followed the prescribed medications and therapies while embracing a holistic lifestyle. The results were truly noteworthy, as he achieved freedom from the constant heartburn and acid reflux that had previously impacted his daily life.

We take pride in the successful management of this patient’s condition and continue to be dedicated to providing comprehensive, patient-centered care to individuals facing similar health challenges.
