The Link Between Asthma and Acid Reflux

Link Between Asthma and Acid Reflux

Anyone who suffers from asthma, allergies and/or acid reflux knows the problems associated with just a momentary relapse of symptoms.

The pain. . . suffering. . . constant dread . . . not knowing what is wrong . . . what to do!

And anyone who is confused about why they get no relief from treating just one of these problems may just find the answers today!

It has been observed by many asthma specialists that asthmatics are also more likely to have a defective lower esophageal sphincter (a common problem associated with acid reflux). Moreover, many reports have revealed that asthmatics who received treatment for acid reflux also experienced noticeable relief from the symptoms of asthma.

Acid Reflux Can Cause Asthma Symptoms In Two Ways

First, acid reflux may cause people to breathe little droplets of acid into their lungs without them knowing it. This acid can aggravate the fragile pulmonary lining and cause spasms in the airways, which in turn can result in an asthma attack.

Second, recurring episodes of acid reflux may cause digestive acid to melt away the esophageal lining and expose some parts of significant nerves that are connected to the lungs. The irritation of the nerve endings have been observed to also set off the constriction of airways, which could then result in an asthma attack.

How to Recognize If Acid Reflux Is Causing Asthma

Asthmatics may know that their asthma attacks are connected with acid reflux if their asthma began after reaching adulthood. Acid reflux is also suspected if asthma symptoms become more evident after eating, at night, or after lying down for a while. It can also be evident if the typical asthma treatments don’t work.

With the link between asthma and acid reflux being recognized, it is therefore prudent to test for GERDs disease. The combination of these two diseases can seriously hamper the quality of one’s lifestyle and therefore early detection and treatment is warranted.

Are You Suffering From Recurring Acid Reflux And Still Drinking Soy Milk? Then STOP!

Read This Article Before It?s Too Late . . .

causes of acid refluxYou?ve already read about how aluminum containing antacids block crucial minerals. I?ve shown you how an acidic pH depletes stomach acid balance.

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 acid reflux causesoy 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.

Live well,

Addicted To Antacids, But You Don’t Know What Else To Do?

Acid Reflux Disease | Alternative to AntacidsYou?ve heard that antacids can be harmful to your health, but have you ever asked yourself why you thought you needed them in the first place? Like millions of others, you?ve been duped by misinformation that molded your opinion and discouraged you from honestly looking into the true cause of that nasty burning sensation in your throat. An effective treatment for acid reflux will treat the cause…not mask the symptoms.

Is it the white clinical looking lab coat, the Oscar nominated celebrities, the catchy little jingles or the candy like appearance and the easy access that persuaded you to do it? Perhaps you simply fell for the old ?Eat, Drink and be Merry? propaganda that has us all lining up to grab the next Over-The-Counter quick fix gimmick . . . in fact, more than $78 million worth of antacids were purchased in America during the holiday season of 2004.

So stop feeling guilty, you?re not alone on this one.

Apparently when Americans are under stress we eat a lot more food. Being a stressed out culture, we just automatically ?pop? billions of cherry, vanilla or cocoa flavored tummy-tranquilizers like innocent little after-dinner mints. But hey, it?s a painless purchase and that?s what you?re supposed to do, right?

Wrong. First of all, they are NOT a painless purchase, in the long-term. Secondly, for most of us it?s exactly what you do NOT want to do if you suffer from acid reflux. Follow me here and I will explain . . . truth is, every time you do it, you?re spelling I-N-T-E-N-S-I-F-I-C-A-T-I-O-N.

Relief is the word that an addict uses after a fix. Intensification is what happens after the short lived fix wears off, feeding a vicious cycle.

But you say your heartburn is caused from stomach acid, right?

Sorry, but it?s just not true. Would you believe the root causes of? acid reflux, GERD or heartburn is actually from the ?lack of stomach acid?? Well, so much for the multi-billion dollar acid-blocker industry.

Due to dietary, nutritional and/or aging factors more than 25 million Americans experience this problem. Recurring acid reflux, incorrectly referred to as a stomach acid disease, actually has more to do with the Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES) and the inability to properly digest foods than anything else.

Coping With Acid Reflux Disease

Acid Reflux Disease | OTC MedicationAcid reflux sounds like a modest disorder, common, mild and treatable. However, it has become a burden to millions of people, affecting food choices, sleep patterns, moods and activities. In fact, acid reflux can be so debilitating that it is now being considered an epidemic, affecting millions of lives.

Not only is acid reflux irritation unpleasant, but it is painful and can negatively effect daily life. If acid reflux is left untreated or is improperly treated it will yield negative complications. It can potentially lead to GERDs Disease (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) and even lead to esophageal cancer.

Traditional treatments, such as OTC drugs, are usually the first thing sufferers? reach for when symptoms begin. However, these types of treatments only mask the symptoms and do not address the reason behind acid reflux disease. OTC drugs are not only ineffective in the long run, but can lead to many dangerous complications. Antacids and proton pump inhibitors can block acid levels that are necessary for proper digestion and mineral absorptions. They also contain heavy metals that, over time, can increase the risk of liver, heart, kidney and bone disease.

There is a debate among the medical community about the most effective treatment for acid reflux. Medications or natural treatments? While some OTC medication are effective for treating symptoms, there have been no long term studies that prove the effectiveness or saftey of these methods. On the other hand, it has been reported that 97% of heartburn and acid reflux symptoms can be treated with natural or alternative remedies. These remedies are in fact, highly effective and safe.

Among the first steps to alternative treatment are lifestyle changes. These changes include self-restraint, diet changes, avoiding certain foods, weight management, and a general healthier lifestyle.

It is imperative that proper natural treatment and education be a leading part of any acid reflux regime. Consult your doctor about alternative treatments for acid reflux and be sure to educate yourself.

There is no single alternative remedy that will work for everyone with acid reflux, so be sure to try a few. Try ones that you are comfortable with, but be sure to try a few first before seeking medical treatments. In extreme cases surgery may be your only option.

If you would like to learn more about Acid Reflux and alternative treatments, check out the Acid Reflux and Heartburn Remedy Report. A resource report where you can get information, tips, easy at home remedies and resources for treating acid reflux.
