Acid Disorder

Acid reflux disorder is a condition that can occur when you have a lower esophageal sphincter (LES) that does not operate as it should. The LES is a crucial component of the digestive system. Food that is headed to your stomach when you eat has to pass the LES to enter the stomach for digestion. The LES serves as a muscular ring at the end of the esophagus, right next to the diaphragm and stomach opening. For food morsels to get to the stomach, the LES has to open. Usually, the LES closes after each portion of food goes to the stomach. If your LES is weak, it does not close tightly enough to prevent stomach acids from getting into your esophagus.

Stomach acid is the last thing you want near your esophagus. Stomach acid is used to digest foods. The digestive process may begin in your mouth, but it is in the stomach that most of the work takes place. Gastric acids help to break down foods into smaller particles so that the intestines can absorb and distribute the proteins and minerals that are essential for your body. The acidity of stomach acid is very high and it can only be tolerated in the stomach. The stomach wall and lining is equipped to handle the corrosive nature of stomach acid.

Once stomach acid gains access to your esophagus there can be a problem. The esophagus doesn’t have the same protective lining that the stomach has. When acid that comes from the stomach backs up into the esophagus, this is called acid reflux disorder. Acid reflux disorder can be a challenge for many people. By being more aware of acid reflux you will be able to identify the causes, signs and treatment options.

Causes: The cause of acid reflux may stem from other conditions: being pregnant, obese, having a hiatal hernia or diabetes can contribute to acid reflux disorder. These conditions change the dynamics of the body, especially the stomach. When pressure is added to the stomach, there is a shift of the stomach. When food is digested irregularly, this can trigger acid reflux. Food is a big factor. Eating foods just before bed, lifting heavy objects or eating fatty foods can put you at risk for acid reflux disorder.

Signs: Symptoms of acid reflux disorder include heartburn, nausea, regurgitating food, chest pain, dysphagia, burping and an awful bitter taste in the mouth. Heartburn is the most common symptom of acid reflux disorder and can cause you to experience a burning feeling in your chest and throat. Signs in children may include respiratory problems that include a chronic cough, wheezing and asthma-like symptoms.

Treatment: Holistic remedies for acid reflux are highly suggested as a method of controlling symptoms. Drinking aloe juice, lots of water, and eating papaya will reduce the production of gastric acid in the stomach. Lifestyle changes like quitting smoking, eating less fattening meals and reducing alcohol intake are great techniques. Remember that effective treatment varies for each individual.

Natural Remedies of Acid Reflux

If you suffer from recurring acid reflux odds are you?ve already tried every gimmick on the shelf or ?over-the-counter? brands and found only grief.

Many people don?t realize that natural remedies address the root cause of acid reflux by helping to restore your original healthful balance.

Natural remedies are evidence-based scientifically time-tested ancient folk technologies, not medicine. The definition of medicine has changed recently because politicians are writing pseudo-scientific policy for profit, instead of scientists writing honest policy.

Drugs should not be the only things to make claims, especially when your acid reflux is NOT a drug deficiency . . .

Remember when the church persecuted people for knowing the earth traveled around the sun . . . that the earth was round and ships didn?t fall of the edge when they sailed past the horizon???

The same kind of malarkey is going on between natural remedies, which are scientifically sound and pharmaceuticals, which are not.

A natural remedy addresses the root cause of your acid Reflux, whereas a pharmaceutical only blocks the signals or symptoms from that cause.

A natural remedy can sometime prevent and cure acid reflux and other ill states of being, they have a holistic benefit.

Pharmaceuticals have side effects; natural remedies have side benefits . . .

Acid reflux is heartburn gone wild.

What was a simple hic-up of indigestion is suddenly a real bother, to the point where it can damage your social life as well as your health in the long run.

The last thing you want to do is ignore whatever is causing your heartburn by blocking your symptoms with dangerous drugs.

Did you know all drugs are small doses of poisons? In fact drugs need secret ?additional? ingredients to slow your liver and kidney functions so your immune system doesn?t immediately kick-out and eliminate the toxin they call a drug.

Acid reflux often gets worse when people use the wrong approach and anything other than a natural remedy targeted at the true cause of your heartburn can only risk making it worse.

Natural remedies have been proven time after time, age after age and found in the history records and in multiple cultures around the world.

Using local plants and other indigenous ingredients make for slight variations through the centuries . . . yet the success pattern is apparent or else how would the natural remedy survived tradition?

People pass natural remedies down through the generations because they work and because people have always suffered from acid reflux.

They never suffered by the millions like in today?s world, but then they always cured it rather than just treated it.

If you? ignore the cause of your acid reflux by treating symptoms with drugs, your turning your ailment into a real dis-ease . . .there is no reason heartburn should ever end up as a surgical operation to fix a hiatal hernia and yet millions end up there.

Plus cases of Barrett?s syndrome and throat cancer are all on the rise, why is that? Because people are blocking symptoms of acid reflux instead of finding a natural remedy that removes the root cause- we need a return to common sense.

It should NOT be illegal for people to cure themselves without drug and surgery intervention . . . and then advertise it!

Heartburn, acid reflux and gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) are great examples of what happens when natural remedies are discouraged or even banned from public awareness.

Stop Acid Reflux

How do you stop acid reflux naturally?

You already know how to make it unnaturally worse . . . so why not try something completely different . . . different from what keeps causing your acid reflux.

Your acid reflux is caused by you ignoring it because you?re only trying to stop the symptoms.

If you have a leaking water pipe in your wall and it kept ruining your drywall, would you repair the dry wall without fixing the leaking water pipe behind it all?

Of course not.

So tell me then why is your health any different?

You can stop your acid reflux when you start taking care of what is causing it.

Sometimes a solution is so obvious that it’s over looked. Treating the symptoms of your acid reflux without addressing the real underlying cause won’t stop it.

Sometimes the solution is the problem, especially when millions of people blindly follow a medical procedure, while ignoring all the science.

You can stop your acid reflux by using genuine care and by nurturing your digestive health at the cellular level.

You can stop your acid reflux naturally by simply reversing the way you think about it.

Optimize your ability to digest food and your acid reflux will stop.

Learn how to increase your ability to absorb nutrition from your food and your acid reflux will stop.

STOP blocking the warning signals of a weakening immune system and start listening to them . . . nothing can change at the symptom level, so move on and use a natural remedy to stop your acid reflux issues instead.

Your symptoms of acid reflux are not the reason you are suffering, you are suffering because you have lost your natural sense of balance . . . balance in what you eat . . . balance in why you eat . . . balance in when you eat.

Eating is the most natural function you have . . . and it’s been perverted by the convenience of a packaged food industry. Your health is sacred, so why shouldn’t your food be too?

Stop shadow boxing with your own health by depending on gimmicks and drugs. If you lose your health all the money in the world won?t buy it back. Your health is a gift, cherish it. Stop your acid reflux by caring about how you digest and absorb nutrients, select what you eat and learn what you really need . . . change can only take place at the thinking level.

Stop behaving as if you have no choice . . . your acid reflux is a result of poor decisions . . . so start making better ones and stop the cause of your acid reflux at the root level. It?s honestly that simple my friend.

Help for Acid Reflux

Congratulations for doing your own due diligence and researching how you can get help for your acid reflux.

More people are taking back charge of their health, that’s the good news. The bad news is too many people suffer far too long before they decide to help themselves eliminate acid reflux.

The big problem is the acid reflux industry only stays in business if your acid reflux keeps coming back. Keep in mind only you and your family benefits from you being cured of acid reflux.

The drug industry is unfortunately still a big part of the acid reflux problem. In fact if the so-called acid reflux treatments they offer actually worked, you wouldn’t be here reading this, simply because acid reflux wouldn’t be the huge health problem it has become.

The best help you can give your acid reflux is to stop treating the symptoms. Treating the symptoms of acid reflux doesn’t change the fact that the real cause of it is still there.

You can help make things better by simply eliminating the cause of your acid reflux. When you see how acid reflux issues are properly helped, it seems almost funny to think you believed anything else would do.

The acid reflux drug industry counts on you confusing the ‘effects’ of your acid indigestion with its ’cause’.

Bottom line is the entire drug culture depends on you believing that treating the symptoms of acid reflux will help. Helping acid reflux disease by taking drugs to block the warning signals is a scientific impossibility.

It shouldn’t be allowed and someday it will be recognized as criminal. As long as people pop pills to hide symptoms of acid reflux, acid reflux will stay a serious health problem.

Do you even know for a certainty that your acid reflux issues are from too much gastric acid or too little?

If you had too much stomach acid, which is rare . . . you wouldn’t have trouble digesting rusty nails, let alone a little pizza and coke. The odds are your best help for acid reflux is to check your stomach acid levels first . . . then work on restoring optimum digestion.
