Recognized Self-Help Advocate Patricia Hellinger Offering Seminar on Hiatal Hernia

Shelby, Mont. (PRWEB) December 07, 2012

Over the past few years, many people have been misdiagnosed with problems concerning stomach issues. Problems like colitis, anxiety, panic attacks and stomach pain are all associated with something simple and treatable through non-invasive procedures, but that’s something the doctors won’t tell the public. If problems like these keep reoccurring, it is likely the stomach has a dysfunction called a hiatal hernia.

Author and recognized holistic self-help advocate Patricia Hellinger is offering a work shop or self-help seminar on the importance of healing your hiatal hernia rather than managing it. If any baby-boomer were to purchase an in-person work shop or seminar, they will receive 50 percent off the seminar and Hellingers self-help book, Hiatal Hernia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Many Other Diseases Healed Naturally, for free.

We must all take responsibility for our own personal health care, Hellinger said. Once you assume responsibility, the healing is less complicated.

Hellinger has found that a hiatal hernia mimics thousands of symptomatic effects and diseases, such as:chronic fatigue syndrome, heart attack, depression, dementia, loss of memory, Alzheimers disease and thyroid problems. Suffering from any one of these dysfunctional problems could very well be the cause from a simple hiatal hernia that is easily healed by a holistic, non-invasive self-help procedure that is proven and guaranteed safe and effective. Its safe for all ages, from infants to seniors.

On Hellingers website,, theres information on how to heal permanently from a hiatal hernia to start living healthy again. Baby boomers should take note because the more they age, the higher the risk for hiatal hernia, which could lead to more health problems. Prevent a hiatal hernia and stomach pain before it happens and contact Hellinger, today.
