Using the Gall Bladder Divergent Channel to Calm an Irritated Vagus Nerve
A hiatal hernia is a type of hernia in which abdominal organs typically the stomach slip through the diaphragm into the middle compartment of the chest. The most common risk factors are obesity and older age. Symptoms from a hiatal hernia may be improved by changes such as raising the head of the bed, weight loss, and adjusting eating habits. If the condition does not improve with medications, a surgery to carry out a laparoscopic fundoplication may be an option. Hiatal hernia has often been called the "great mimic" because its symptoms can resemble many disorders. Among them, a person with a hiatal hernia can experience dull pains in the chest, shortness of breath caused by the hernia's effect on the diaphragm , heart palpitations due to irritation of the vagus nerve , and swallowed food "balling up" and causing discomfort in the lower esophagus until it passes on to the stomach.
There are 12 cranial nerves in the body. They come in pairs and help to link the brain with other areas of the body, such as the head, neck, and torso. Some send sensory information, including details about smells, sights, tastes, and sounds, to the brain. These nerves are known as having sensory functions. Other cranial nerves control the movement of various muscles and the function of certain glands.
A Hiatal Hernia or Hiatus Hernia is a health condition where part of the stomach protrudes up into the chest area through a small opening in the diaphragm muscle. The diaphragm muscle is located just under your lungs and is used for breathing. When you take breathes, you are contracting and relaxing your diaphragm muscle. The small opening in the diaphragm muscle is for the esophagus. When you eat or drink, the food or liquid travels through the esophagus to the stomach. This small opening in the diaphragm is called the hiatus. A hiatal hernia may lead to problems with such things as acid reflux and heartburn.

The hiatus is an opening in your diaphragm muscle that allows your food pipe to pass through to your stomach. A hiatal hernia happens when a portion of your stomach pushes up through the hiatus and into your chest, according to Health Services at Columbia University. This can cause a series of health problems and interfere with nerves that pass through the hiatus. Your chiropractor may suggest treatment if he suspects that you have a hiatal hernia. A hiatal hernia generally doesn't cause any symptoms, which means you may have one without ever realizing it.
By Dr Steven Rochlitz. By middle age, over 50 per cent of people may have hidden hiatal hernia syndrome, together with vagus nerve imbalance, which at least in part can cause or exacerbate asthma, reflux, ulcer, sleep apnoea, hypertension and various cardiac conditions.
