Hiatal Hernia Sufferers! Suffer No More! 

----Wendy K., long time patient of Bodnar Chiropractic Center

You have heard from your doctor that you have a hiatal hernia. This is good news, not bad. When you change your diet, you will take control of the syndrome, manage the symptoms, and feel good for the rest of your life.

First, visit Dr. Bodnar. I have been adjusted by him for about six months now, and wish I had started a year and a half ago when my hiatal hernia was diagnosed.

He adjusts certain digestive organs and valves back into place, and you can actually fell and hear the digestive juices.

You can manage your hiatal hernia with these tested and true doctors' suggestions, plus I have a few of my own.

Besides what you eat it is how and when you eat.


  • Sit up straight, and take one big breath between every few bites. Small forkfuls of food, chew well and swallow before you take another forkful.
  • Very important: don't drink liquids with meals. Even if you eat soup, don't have anything solid with it.


  • Stay upright after meals, don't eat anything  2-3 hours before bedtime.
  • If you wake up hungry, eat a serving of oatmeal, and sit up and read for another hour before going back to bed.


  • Yogurt and fruit in the morning and fresh fruit and vegetables all day.
  • I avoid sugar and fried foods and feel so much better, but other hiatal hernia "sufferers" might have different culprits that trigger the reactions.
  • Take a 1/4 -1/2 tablet of B12 with food, and D3 when you are finished with the meal.
