Are You Suffering From Recurring Acid Reflux And Still Drinking Soy Milk? Then STOP!
Read This Article Before It?s Too Late . . .
You probably know causes of acid reflux and heartburn involve poor digestion due to weak or depleted stomach acid, contrary to mainstream medical propaganda . . .
And I hope you’re beginning to see why sudden heartburn attacks produce large amounts of burning acid. It?s only your body trying to compensate for low stomach acid . . . I can’t emphasize enough how your heartburn and indigestion is all from a lack of consistent amounts of digestive acids in your stomach, rather than an over abundance.
These violent upsurges erupt into your throat and mouth causing the pain and embarrassment of foul belching and the rest of it, threatening further damage to your esophagus. This is more than an inconvenience for millions of people who at a high risk for getting Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD).
I know you care about your health and you are looking for a natural solution and it can be frustrating without the right guidance. You are quite aware that eating the wrong foods and eating before bed as well as other lifestyle factors are at play. But if you’ve tried everything and nothing seems to help I have something that may be of help for you today.
There are a few more tricky turns in the road ahead that you need to be aware of . . . let’s talk soy.
The sad thing is millions of people who are trying to do the right thing are still being deceived by certain so-called health foods. These so-called health foods are being mass produced and under go harsh chemical processing.
The main culprit I want to bring to your attention today is soy products.
At one time in the not too far past soy protein was only a toxic by-product of the vegetable oil industry. Today advancements in the manufacturing technology have made it possible to produce Soy Protein Isolates (SPI), turning pure waste into huge profits. Additional synthetic nutrients, sugars, emulsifiers, flavorings and preservatives have transformed this unsavory waste product into a billion dollar industry.
The Chinese have always consumed ample amounts other types of beans simply because the raw soy beans contain huge amounts of toxins. As far as we can tell, around A.D 700 during the Zhou Dynasty in China people began fermenting soy to make tempeh, natto, miso and soy sauce. Many years later Chinese scientists found by boiling soy curds and adding plaster of Paris they could make tofu.
The Chinese knew of the toxins and that the anti-nutrient side-effects were not neutralized during the cooking process the same as during fermentation.
Recent animal studies have shown that diets high in these same anti-nutrients, in this case trypsin inhibitors, caused enlargement and diseases in the pancreas, including cancer.
Trypsin is an enzyme essential to help break down and digest proteins in both animals and humans.
Trypsin is one of the three principal digestive protein enzymes, the other two being chymotrypsin and pepsin. Trypsin supports proper digestion (starting in the stomach) in the small intestine where a mineral rich alkaline environment ( about pH 8 ) sustains its maximal enzymatic activity.
Without Trypsin you will suffer reduced protein digestion, serious gastric upset and develop chronic deficiencies in amino acids. What’s really going on is soy’s notorious anti-nutrient toxins are setting the stage for acid reflux, heartburn and indigestion for literally millions of Americans . . .
Civilizations that depend on soy-based foods use traditional preparation methods that help neutralize or minimize these poisons. The fermentation process reduces the toxins and anti-nutrients. Tofu comes from the pressed curds of the soybean which also minimizes the toxins, but not as much. The rest is thrown away and the bulk of the poisons along with it.
The truth be known the Chinese do not eat large amounts of tofu and they always combine it with mineral rich fish broth, followed usually by consuming Omega 3 rich fish as well. For some reason we Americans believe you should live on this stuff . . . wrong again!
I believe you are getting the picture, but let me make sure you get the whole picture . . . strangely enough Americans are the main consumers of unfermentated raw soy products second to the Japanese.
Other hidden toxins from raw industrial processed soy include haemagglutinin, goitrogens, phytic acid, nitrates, and phytoestrogens.
Hemagglutinin is a clot-promoting substance that causes red blood cells to clump together. How’s that sound for heart healthy?
Nitrites are potent carcinogens formed during the spray-drying process of making Soy Protein Isolate (SPI). Test animals fed SPI develop enlarged organs, particularly the pancreas and thyroid gland, and increased deposition of fatty acids in the liver. SPI is used as textured vegetable protein. You’ll find it in diet beverages, commercially baked goods and fast food products, usually as a meat filler or substitute.
Goitrogens are substances that depress thyroid function and cause gout. This is may be why so many people are experiencing increased thyroid and gout issues each year.
Phytic acid is present in the bran or hulls of all seeds. Phytic acid blocks the absorption of essential minerals like, calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and especially zinc. Mineral deficiencies of this magnitude harms nutrient uptake and depletes stomach acid, clearly leading to acid reflux, heartburn and indigestion. By simply sprouting your beans and seeds you can eliminate phytic acid poisoning.
Fact: The Japanese apparently eat 30 times the soy that Americans do. Perhaps that?s why they have much higher rates of liver, pancreas, thyroid and stomach cancers . . . oh yes I almost forgot that includes cancer of the esophagus as well. If ignored, acid reflux will lead to GERDs disease, which very often leads to cancer of the esophagus and that thought alone makes me want to stay away from all forms of soy products myself, how about you?
There are other alternatives to dairy and soy beverages, try almond, hazel, oat or hemp milk. They’re all delicious and nutritious too.
Well I hope I helped you make a connection today. Sometimes the cause of the problem is so close to you it takes someone else to point it out.
P.S. If you have tried the traditional treatment for you acid reflux, heartburn or indigestion and it failed . . . or if you simply want to cut to the chase and use natural remedies before the doctor recommends prescriptive drugs, get the Reflux and Heartburn Remedy Report, and Joe Barton will take you by the hand, step-by-step and show you how you can find lasting relief naturally.
