How to Get Rid Of Heartburn

People are asking how to get rid of heartburn, not because there are dozens of heartburn products they don’t know about, but because none of the heartburn products work.

It’s self evident that modern medicine has a bad attitude toward anything that really gets rid of heartburn naturally.

Basically Mama Nature would kick Big Pharma’s butt on the open market, especially with natural cures for heartburn, but even though Mama Nature’s way gets rid of heartburn at the root and any other health problems . . . she’s not patentable.

Because the business of medicine in America is the most profitable business on earth, there’s no way they’re going to let you find out how to get rid of your heartburn. It’s just not good business to kill one of the biggest cash cows in the medical industry. They’d rather you just treat your symptoms of heartburn instead.

Drugs that treat heart burn may get rid of the ‘symptoms’ of heartburn, but by now you know better . . . you really just want to get rid of your heartburn for good.

As you probably already know, treating the symptoms of heartburn, or any dis-ease will change nothing. Taking drugs for heartburn is a smoke and mirrors magic trick.

Magic tricks worked better on us when we were kids, but now that we’re all grown up and we’ve put childish things away . . .magic and antacid gimmicks just don’t get rid of heartburn and we know it.

Getting rid of your heartburn is a serious request. You’re not interested in getting rid of the symptoms of heartburn; no . . . you don’t want anything to do with heartburn at all-period.

What good does it do you to chemically hide the symptoms of heartburn? Knowing you still have heartburn means ‘the cause’ of your heartburn will still be there.

That’s why it’s a serious request, because if you don’t get rid of you heartburn at the root cause, it will only get worse and then you’ll be trying to hide the bigger flames of more dangerous symptoms using more toxic drugs.

You don’t want side effects, you want to get rid of heartburn . . . is that asking too much? Address the root cause, nurture normal digestion, build up your enzymes and healthy gut flora, eat more raw vegetables and less animal protein, and eat smaller portions more often.

Eat better, exercise and give your pancreas a natural break-that’s how you get rid of heartburn, acid indigestion, acid reflux, GERD and hiatal hernias . . . nip it in the bud!

Heartburn Home Remedies

Heartburn home remedies have been used as folk medicine for thousands of years. If you’re looking for safe, effective and time-tested home remedies for your heartburn you’re going to be better off than most people who jump up and start popping Over-The-Counter (OTC) antacids.

Get Rid of Heartburn Over-The-Counter (OTC) antacids are a far cry from a natural home remedy for heartburn. What they are is a recipe for disaster.

Antacids are chocked full of extra ingredients, some listed and some not listed and none of them are nutrients.

If it’s not a nutrient, it’s a toxin . . . at least that’s how your immune system will see it. Recently tons of antacids were recalled only because someone noticed some wood splinters, glass and other floor sweepings in them. Hmmmm, I wonder how many of those kinds of contaminants get consumed everyday without being noticed.

Eating glass, wood chips and floor sweepings may sound natural, but it’s a far cry from a natural home remedy.

Your heartburn is a case of simple acid indigestion and if you’ve noticed you’re getting heartburn upset more often than you used to, the first thing you want to do, as a home remedy, is to start eating at home more often. I mean eating proper, healthy foods prepared with loving care . . . at home.

I can’t think of a better home remedy than addressing the heartburn issue at the root cause, which is undernutrition. Fast food is the opposite of a home remedy for heartburn; it is the cause, the instigator, the culprit.

Now if Grandma’s homemade recipe for spaghetti gives you heartburn, you either eat too much or your digestive system was put out of balance long before you eat her home cooked meal.

Home remedies for any ailment, whether its heartburn or cancer, use what used to be common sense . . .it’s more rare nowadays, that’s why they’re called home remedies.

There didn’t used to be any mystery surrounding a good home cooked pot of chicken soup, or even a home brewed herbal beer. The modern world was weaned on the peasant lifestyle . . . it’s the exclusive left brain thinking of the medical elitists that messed it all up.

If empirical medicine was all that they claim it to be, your heartburn wouldn’t be a medical issue. You’d simple chew on a specific home remedy root, grass or fruit in between your meals and it would be cured, relieved and over with.

The fact that home remedies have all but been outlawed by the business of dis-ease management is a tragedy. Becoming nutritionally literate will lead you to the cornucopia of home remedies for heartburn to cancer and everything in-between.

Bottom-line is if you have the power to make yourself sick with heartburn, or any dis-ease, you also have the power to make yourself well.

GERD Treatment

Gastro-esophageal acid reflux or GERD for short can be treated with a traditional Westernized medical angle using the chemical approach or you can use a treatment with more of a holistically angle using a nutritional approach.

Get Rid of GerdAccording to guidelines established by the American College of gastroenterology, GERD is defined as “symptoms or mucosal damage produced by the abnormal reflux of gastric contents into the esophagus”.

In searching for the right GERD treatment or cure it’s important you not get confused by elusive medical lingo. Simply put GERD is your heartburn gone wild. What was a simple case of acid indigestion has been allowed to inflame into a bad case of burned throat tissue.

Thanks to television programming, direct-to-consumer advertising and mass media propaganda millions of people end up using treatment that turn their heartburn into GERD.

If millions of people were addressing the root cause of their acid indigestion and heartburn in the first place, instead of popping antacids, then you and millions of others wouldn’t be even asking what GERD treatment they should use.

Why? Because there wouldn’t be any GERD and if there were they would be rare cases. GERD treatment is a huge business that sells antacid products, proton pump inhibitor chemicals and ultimately surgery and the maintenance products for that.

Your heartburn was never intended to lead you down a sales funnel of gimmicks and gadgetry . . . GERD treatment is a product made by the medical industry that you want to avoid at all costs.

GERD treatment is a gateway for laparoscopic or fundoplication surgery as a protocol to help you avoid the inevitable throat cancer you’re likely to get if you continue to just use GERD treatments to cover symptoms.

Before you even buy another bottle of antacids or fill that GERD treatment prescription for Proton Pump Inhibitor chemicals (PPIs), do yourself a favor, find a physician that is willing to give you a stomach acid test.

One of the biggest scams of GERD treatment is selling people on chemically blocking stomach acid production, when in fact their GERD symptoms are from a lack of stomach acid.

Don’t just take my word for it, look into it yourself. What I found is GERD treatment leads to acid rebound, which is a chemical dependency on PPIs . . .

Whenever you use a treatment, whether for GERD or acid reflux, whatever it is, keep in mind that treatment is only blocking symptoms . . . the root cause of your GERD is still there.

That’s why the nutritional approach is a smart avenue to look into before falling into the GERD treatment trap.

Hiatal Hernia Chest Pain

If you are having chest pain caused from hiatal hernia there are natural remedies you can take and things you can do to make the pain stop.

Your hiatal hernia is your acid reflux and heartburn symptoms gone wild.

Hiatal hernia is a perfect example of what can happen when you only treat symptoms of a simple acid indigestion.

Ignoring the cause of your hiatal hernia and chest pain is the same as only treating symptoms.

To stop your chest pain caused from hiatal hernia for good, you won’t need any medication; instead all you need is some real science.

That’s really all folk remedies and ancient healing wisdom is . . . science.

Medicine has become a political activity and doesn?t concern itself with nurturing a healing experience and often ignores real science. Tragically, today Big Medicine is driven solely as a profit generating machine . . .

Your hiatal hernia once began as a little heartburn, graduated up to chronic acid indigestion and now you’ve got some serious chest pain.

The chest pain from hiatal hernia is a dangerous thing, not only because it’s painful, but because it is inflicting harmful stress on all your organs and taxing your immune system.

If you’ve been eating a Western pattern diet for more than 30 years you can’t afford to expend anymore of your stored minerals and nutrients . . . which is what often causes acid reflux diseases and hiatal hernia in the first place. . .under-nutrition.

If the stress from your chest pain and pressure from the hiatal hernia persist you could end up with adrenal fatigue, a compromised immune system and other complications.

First thing you can do is put your hands over your head and take some slow deep breathes. If this helps move your arms in a circular pattern, like a windmill, breathing in and out as deeply as you can.

Next step up on your tip toes with your hands above your head, breathe in deeply and then as you exhale suddenly drop from your toes to your heels while bringing your arms down to your side. Repeat this process ten times.

If you are feeling relief from the chest pain, keep doing it until the hiatal hernia relaxes and the pain decreases enough to go for a nice walk. Get some fresh air, swing your arms and walk for about 20 minutes and rest.

To stop the hiatal hernia from causing more chest pain repeat as necessary.
