How can an exercise in the mouth treat a hiatus hernia?

How come holdning IQoro with your lips for 30 seconds actually works as an exercise for hiatus hernia? In this article, we explain how IQoro stimulates the body’s own nervous system and thus treats your problems. 

A common question among our prospective customers is “how can exercising inside the mouth treat a hiatus hernia”? 

The answer to that question is that there are nerves in your mouth that extend all the way down to the diaphragm.

By taking advantage of this connection between mouth and diaphragm, IQoro strengthens muscles deep inside the body that you otherwise cannot control by will. 

To understand this, we first need to take a closer look at how muscles and nerves are connected in the swallowing process.

Nerves needed for you to swallow and eat

The mouth is far more important to the function of the body than many people realise. It is where the body’s swallowing process starts. 

There are four sensory nerves in the mouth whose task is to tell the body that we have started eating or drinking. 

The nerve signals are sent from the mouth, up to the brain, and then down to the diaphragm and other muscles in the swallowing process. These then begin to prepare to receive and transport the food down to the stomach. 

Without the swallowing process, the food you chew would have stayed in your mouth and couldn’t be transported down to your stomach.

IQoro treatment is an hiatal hernia exercise

What training with IQoro does is to stimulate the same nerves you normally use when swallowing food – but much more intensely.

When the nerves gets stimulated, the muscles in the swallowing process starts working, and when this is repeated through regular training, the muscles get stronger. IQoro is simply diaphragm exercises for hiatal hernia, and 147 other muscles in the swallowing process.

Just like any other strength training, repeating the same exercise regularly will make your muscles stronger. This is as true for your hiatal hernia as it is if you go to the gym and lift weights to get stronger arms.

“After nearly 50 years of acid reflux I have found something that reduces symptoms without medication or side effects. Improvements started after about 10 weeks and now I can eat most things without problems.”
