Indigestion Relief

Indigestion relief and eating right go hand in hand. Indigestion isn’t caused from any one food more than it is simply from over eating and lying down on a full belly.

It is no secret that the Western pattern diet and it’s ‘food pyramid’ were both designed to sell food, not nurture or preserve optimum health.

There are super foods, good foods, neutral foods and poor foods. The Standard American Diet (SAD), promotes mostly ‘sad’,¬†poor and neutral foods at best.

The result is millions of Americans are looking for digestive relief every day. Fact is 65% of Americans are overweight and about 37% are obese because of foods laden with empty calories, food additives and sugar.

All of these processed food types from super markets and fast food franchises tax the body of vital enzymes, vitamins and minerals, which leads to indigestion and poor health.

In fact indigestion is a symptom of poor diet and failing health.

When seeking relief for indigestion, be careful not to take any antacid gimmicks that cover your symptoms . . . that isn’t real relief. Real relief means your indigestion isn’t going to spring up again or get worse. Antacids have been proven useless and in fact are suspected of making indigestion symptoms eventually worse.

The best way to relieve indigestion is by resorting to eating less, but more often and eating more raw plant-based foods that will alkalize your inner terrain.

The SAD diet depletes you of enzymes, vitamins and their co-factors like potassium and magnesium. Cooked foods require that you make your own enzymes to break down the food into nutrients. Raw plant-based foods carry their own enzymes thus saving yours.

Relief for indigestion is simple but it takes commitment and courage to make the needed dietary and lifestyle changes. Don’t wimp out for the temporary kind of relief, simply cure your indigestion and optimize your health too.

Drinking half your weight in ounces with naturally alkaline water is a great way to improve digestion and relief digestive issues, just be sure to only drink fluids in-between meals to conserve digestive juices . . .that goes for fruits too, it best to eat them in-between meals.

Snacking all day, reducing the size of your meals, hydrating with natural mineral water and eating more raw plants based foods is the key to indigestive relief . . .because you’ll rarely if ever even need relief because you’ll never have indigestion again.

Natural Acid Reflux Remedies

If you are looking for natural acid reflux remedies you need look no further than your local farmer’s market, Internet or health food store.

Have you ever wondered why on one hand we call grocery stores Health Food Stores, but on the other hand we never say “Acid Reflux Stores, Sickness Stores or Bad Food Stores” do we?

Perhaps we should at least think of them that way.

No one would want to see a slow-food drive-thru, fast food is the name of the game, you’re in a hurry and your boss only allows you 30 or 60 minutes for lunch.

Acid reflux is caused from eating things that cause acid reflux; the natural remedy is simple learning to eat the opposite things.

The challenge is the big food industry doesn’t label your acid reflux remedies like they naturally should.

Big food, like big Agri and all big businesses all want you to buy a lot of everything . . . not just the natural remedies.

In fact if they can make money selling you the things that cause your acid reflux, or whatever dis-ease you might have, then it goes unsaid that they can make even more money selling you the natural remedies too.

Sadly, the foods that cause dis-eases like acid reflux are cheap quality, readily available and priced lower less too . . . sometimes because of government subsidies! Whereas the foods that help your body’s natural healing process work better, the natural remedies, are usually more expensive and are becoming harder and harder to find.

I don’t like to sound off as if this is some theory of a big business conspiracy . . . so I’ll tell you straight up . . . this is NOT a theory. In fact the business of food and medicine has simple gotten too BIG.

That’s the fact of the matter. People don’t think like big corporations, so it just sounds like a theory, but it’s not. BIG corporation simply do not think like people do . . . and it’s hard for us because millions of expensive advertising campaigns have trained us “people” to think corporations are people too.

I hate to pop your bubble, but just because some politician gave “people rights” to a business, still doesn’t make them a person.

Your acid reflux and every other health issue in America can be trace directly to the foods people eat and the beliefs they hold to be true. All this is directly affected by BIG business and their targeted advertising campaigns- remember BIG tobacco?

If you think fast-food joints care about your acid reflux or anything to do with your health and wellness, you are deluded.

Health food stores sell high quality food, natural remedies and food support supplements, obviously the people who own and operate those businesses truly care about helping cure your acid reflux.

Because once the light comes on, you’ll be back- health and longevity are contagious. So go forth and start taking all your natural remedies for acid reflux and everything else- join what I call “The Self Health Care Revolution!

Home Remedies Stomach Ulcer

If you have recently been diagnosed with an ulcer, you may be searching for home remedies to help heal it. While there isn?t a sure fire way to cure it, home remedies for a stomach ulcer are often simple to execute and can help your body heal itself, which is often the best way to treat an ulcer.

The only case where home remedies for a stomach ulcer wouldn?t be appropriate as a first course of action is if the ulcer is caused by a bacterium called H. pylori. H. pylori is a fairly common corkscrew shaped bacteria, and is actually the number one cause of ulcers, not stress or fatty diets as was once commonly thought. So, if H. pylori is blamed for your ulcer your doctor will most likely prescribe a course of antibiotics to help kill the bacteria. However, these home remedies can be practiced in conjunction with antibiotics, to help the ulcer heal once the bacteria are gone.

First of all, monitor how much food you take in. Overwhelming your stomach with large meals can often aggravate an ulcer as the stomach tries desperately to break down such a huge quantity of food. Smaller, more frequent meals are the solution to this. It promotes healthy digestion, helps prevent heartburn and will help give your ulcer the space it needs to heal.

Second, watch what you eat. Fatty foods, extremely spicy foods, and foods that are known to cause heartburn or indigestion for you should all be avoided. Things like fast food, whole milk and creams, onions, garlic, caffeine and acidic fruits like citrus should be used in moderation when you?re trying to heal from an ulcer. Foods that should be targeted are whole grain breads, lean meats, fish, and foods that are high in antioxidants that will help the healing process ? like blueberries.

It?s important to focus on a healthy diet and outlook when your body has experienced a trauma, like an ulcer. Providing your body with proper nutrition will help it naturally heal. This means a balanced diet and maybe even regular, light exercise to get your blood pumping. Providing the area with a supply of oxygen rich blood will help speed the healing process.

Third, avoid pain killers like the plague. Over the counter and prescription pain killers are known to cause ulcers, so when you?re trying to heal from one, they can be counterproductive. If you experience joint pain, a headache, or back pain when you have an ulcer, reach for something other than pain killers to help get rid of it. Try a hot or cold compress, relax with a warm bath, get a massage, lie down in the dark, anything but putting a pain killer in your already sensitive stomach.

Fourth, stop smoking. Smoking is extremely detrimental to your health, and ulcers are quite frankly one of the minor side effects of the habit. Smoking also slows the healing process dramatically. Quitting will help your body heal the way it should, and prevent ulcers from recurring in the future.

Clearly simple lifestyle changes are some of the best home remedies for a stomach ulcer. For more tips and tricks to help deal with an ulcer, visit www.refluxremedy.com today!
