I don’t remember where I found this interesting but a little bit odd article,but as it is absolute innocent [not dangersous] it maybe worth trying,supposing that no one will write such a story without having tried it before.
In the back part of your diaphragm, there’s a buttonsized hole that allows the esophagus to go from the throat
to the stomach. Sometimes this hole gets enlarged for
one reason or another and, if it does, the stomach can
worm its way up into the hole—a condition known as a
It’s not a foolproof test, but some doctors that screen
for hiatal hernia will have a patient take a deep breath
and hold it. The patient should be able to hold it for 40
seconds. If not, and there are no other problems, it’s possible there’s a hiatal hernia. If a patient’s stomach is stuck
up in the hole of their diaphragm, the first order of business is to get it out. There are two ways to do this.
■ “Chicken Wing Cure.” Drink a glass of roomtemperature or slightly warm water first thing in the
morning when you get out of bed (no coffee, tea,
juice, or cold water—just warm water). Then, while
standing, bring your arms straight out to your sides,
and then bend your elbows so your hands are touching your chest. Stand on your toes as high as possible, and then drop so that you get a pretty good jolt.
Do this about 10 times in a row. Then, while standing with your arms up, pant short quick breaths for
10 to 15 seconds. That’s it!
Let me explain what happens (so you’ll have something to tell your spouse if he/she looks over some
morning and thinks you’re trying to fly). Warm water
acts like a weight in the stomach. Being warm, it
doesn’t cause the stomach to cramp; instead, it relaxes
it. Spreading your arms stretches the diaphragm and
opens up that hole in the back. Dropping down on
your heels jerks the stomach out of the hole. Panting
tightens up the diaphragm muscle to close the hole.
Note: You’ll need to do this exercise every day, not
just until everything feels normal.
■ “The Champagne Bottle Technique.” A second
way to get your stomach out of the hole in your diaphragm will work if the hernia is a stubborn one.
When I’m using this technique, I have the person
stand, preferably on a slight incline leaning backwards. I place one of my hands on top of the other
with my fingers pointing toward him or her and gently push my fingers into the person’s stomach (right
under the ribs, in about the middle of the abdomen).
I then tell the person to breathe in and out four or five
times as I gently move my hands over the stomach.
Then, with a quick, gentle thrust toward the person’s
feet, the stomach is pulled down like a cork being
pulled out of an upside-down champagne bottle.
Also, don’t stuff yourself with large meals, and don’t
sit in an overstuffed chair or lie down right after you eat.
The food your stomach is churning and digesting will
have nowhere to go but into the hole.
