Is Heartburn a Sign of Early Pregnancy?
Obviously every time you have occasional heartburn you don?t have to run out and do a pregnancy test. On the other hand it?s not unusual to experience the heartburning sensation of acid indigestion in your first trimester.
The whole morning sickness thing is triggered from a hormone shift that makes the babies nutrient needs a number one priority, instead of yours.
Have you ever wondered why a starving mother can still produce a healthy baby? This is Mother Nature protecting the future of the human race. The baby must get vital minerals, vitamins and protein in order to form healthy tissue and functionality, even if they have to come from the mother?s tissue.
So to answer your question, yes, heart burn can be a sign of early pregnancy.
Acid reflux, heartburn and acid indigestion, whatever name you want to call it, is triggered from a lack of minerals. Your body and the child inside your body, if you?re pregnant, need special minerals to process vitamins, which fuel your DNA, enzymes and proteins.
It?s also important to know heartburn can be caused from a lack of digestive acids, which is triggered from the lack of minerals. Your gallbladder, liver, pancreas and stomach need these vital minerals to make stomach acid, bile and enzymes for digestion.
So you can bet, IF you are having a baby, you?re going to experience some big changes and heartburn is just the beginning.
The best thing you can do is stay hydrated with ?structured? mineral rich water that is chocked full of ?ionic? ocean minerals. Ionically charged minerals have an abundance of electrons, which not only protect your alkaline pH level, but ensure you have stabile oxygen and constant antioxidant activity at your cellular level.
Keep in mind your baby IS at the cellular level and will have biological priority over ?everything.?
What should you do about the heartburn symptoms?
The last thing you want to do is start popping over-the-counter antacids, or any antacid for that matter.
Remember, if you are pregnant, your heartburn is most likely from a lack of natural ocean minerals in your blood. This created a deficiency which depleted your stomach acid, so putting antacids in your stomach will only neutralize the stomach acid you have left, making your imbalance worse.
Swedish scientists proved years ago that antacids do more harm than good.
You may be asking yourself, if I don?t have enough stomach acid why is the heartburn, or acid reflux, making me feel like I have too much stomach acid- isn?t that why it burns so much?
The answer is because your food isn?t digesting properly, due to lack of stomach acid . . . your gut is slowed down and you are filling up with undigested food.
In a desperate attempt for your body to digest all this food in your stomach, it puts out ?surges? of gastric acid, rather than a steady production of it.
This acid ?surge? is injected from the top of your stomach lining and therefore sits on top of your food, piling up in your stomach.
So when you bend over, lie down or eat again, this caustic, nasty acid is forced up into your throat.
That?s it in a nutshell.
So get a source of alkaline water, or add unrefined Celtic sea salt or coral calcium to your water to boost your electrolytes- avoid alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, sugar and table salt as well as greasy animal fats and refined oils for a while , eat more salads and veges, but avoid iceberg lettuce.
Even rabbits can?t digest ice berg lettuce. Eat your fruits in-between meals and also drink your water in-between, or at least an hour before you eat.
You don?t want to dilute the stomach acid you have.
You were born to heal,
