Symptoms include a feeling of fullness, acid reflux, anxiety, and bloating.

Dietary considerations
Eat several small meals daily, and never lie down right after a meal.
Avoid the following foods that aggravate the condition: coffee, cola, tea, chocolate, lemons, tomato juice, grapefruit, oranges, and spicy foods. Do not drink with your meals; waiting to drink liquids after eating will help you digest your food better. Do not put ice in your beverages, as that will also adversely affect digestion.

Supplement support for hiatal hernia
• Plant enzymes with each meal
• Kyo-Green or liquid chlorophyll
• Kyo-Dophilus or an acidophilus supplement
• Chamomile tea at bedtime
