Treatment For Acid Reflux Disease

Acid reflux disease affects thousands of people every day. Sufferers of this disease know all too well how living with this disease can affect their lifestyle and ultimately their livelihood. It is very important to discover the cause of your acid reflux condition so that you may seek the proper treatment. Acid reflux doesn’t manifest in one way in every sufferer. Though sufferers often complain of similar symptoms, there are those instances where those with acid reflux find that it manifest in their bodies uniquely.

Most people with acid reflux may or may not be aware that there may be aspects of your lifestyles from habits to foods you eat that may be acid reflux triggers. The quicker you determine the cause of acid reflux the most efficiently you’ll be able in determining a solution.

In general, acid reflux takes place when the acids from your stomach escape the stomach and enters the esophagus. The cells walls of the esophagus are very sensitive to your stomach acids. When the walls of your esophagus are met by your stomach acids the result is usually a burning sensation or discomfort that is most commonly referred to as heartburn. Heartburn is a direct affect of your lower esophageal sphincter (LES) which is located at the bottom of the esophagus and the top of the stomach neglecting to close and serve as a barrier after food passes through the esophagus. This allows your stomach acids to leak out into the esophagus.

Treatment for this condition varies and most acid reflux disease care is preventative. You may notice that you suffer from acid reflux after consuming a large meal or when you lie down immediately after eating. To prevent acid reflux from happening in this instance you may want to consider eating smaller meals several times a day and eating at least two hours before lying down. Eating smaller meals allows for the stomach acids to breakdown lesser portions which could eliminate the risk of your stomach acids becoming hyperactive.

Try keeping a log of foods that you eat and make note of any acid reflux symptoms that you may experience after eating these foods. Foods such as tomatoes, raw onion, ground beef, fried chicken, french fries, buffalo wings, chocolate and other fatty foods are more commonly known to be acid reflux triggers while foods like apples, broccoli, carrots, salads, goat cheese skinless chicken breast, extra-lean ground beef and baked potato are less likely to be listed on your trigger list.

Increase your water intake. Water is great for combating acid reflux. Not only does water do an excellent job at stabilizing stomach acids, it also soothes the esophagus lining if there is acid reflux damage.

Try ginger. Ginger, in any form, has been discovered to greatly reduce acid reflux.

Chew gum. Chewing gum after meals is not only great for dental care; it also is great in aiding with digestion. Chewing gum stimulates the production of saliva which can help dilute stomach acids.

These are just a few acid reflux treatments. For more treatment suggestions check out

Acid Reflux Symptoms And Treatment

There is little more satisfying than a good meal. A great meal not only enhances your day but can work wonders on your livelihood. What happens when after consumption of a great meal your body proceeds to burn internally and seemingly malfunctions? You suffer from acid reflux. Acid reflux does a great job at turning a perfectly pleasant dining experience into a disaster. Here’s what you do: continue to eat great food, just find the foods that work best for your body. It’s truly that simple.

Many people who suffer from acid reflux disease are unaware that the foods they consume daily and other eating habits directly affect their acid reflux. Though acid reflux manifests in many individuals differently causing different symptoms thus requiring different method of treatment, there is a blanket of symptoms that are most commonly found in acid reflux sufferers. These symptoms include, but are not limited to:

  • Heartburn: Heartburn is one of the most common acid reflux symptoms. Heartburn usually occurs when your lower esophageal sphincter (LES), which is located at the lower region of your esophagus and the top of your stomach, neglects to close immediately after food passes through allowing the stomach acids to leak up into the esophagus meeting the esophagus cell walls causing a burning sensation that is most often experienced in the chest, throat and abdomen.
  • Regurgitation: Regurgitation is when undigested foods and stomach acids are brought up from the stomach through the esophagus into the mouth. This symptom is usually accompanied by a sour or bitter taste in the mouth and has also been known to block the air passage resulting in asthma like symptoms.
  • Difficulty Swallowing: Difficulty swallowing is generally a result of dysphagia which is a narrowing of the esophagus. When the esophagus narrows there is a difficulty eating and drinking as it seems foods and liquids get stuck in the esophagus when attempting to travel to the stomach.

Other symptoms that are less common include nausea, burping, bloating, coughing, chronic sore throat and unmerited weight loss.

Treatment for acid reflux varies but usually relies on preventative care.

  • Drink water before, during and after meals. Drinking water works wonders as it aids in digestion and stabilizes the acids in the stomach. Drinking water is a great substitution for drinking caffeinated, carbonated and alcoholic beverages which should be eliminated from your diet.
  • Eat smaller portions throughout the day and eat at least two hours before bedtime. Smaller meals work better for the digestive system as stomach acids tend to break down smaller meals more effectively. Try to avoid lying down immediately after eating so that your food may properly digest.
  • If you are a smoker, now would be a great time to quit.
  • If you are overweight, switching your diet and exercising proves to work wonders for acid reflux as well as weight loss.
  • Keep a log of foods that after eating tend to cause acid reflux. Eliminate those foods from your diet.

Acid Medication Reflux Treatment

There is a misnomer going around that if you treat your acid reflux symptoms with medication or have surgery to attempt to permanently fix your acid indigestion issues, that this is the same as healing. . . it’s not.

Medication and surgery is not healing anything.

There isn’t any medication that can substitute for your natural healing process; there is no pill or surgery that can heal your acid reflux.

True healing takes place from nurturing optimum cellular health enough to allow the source of life to sustain your health and restore natural harmony.

Direct-to-Consumer drug advertising has countless people sold on the false idea that if you’re free of acid reflux symptoms you’ve been healed . . . again, this is simply not true.

Before your acid reflux can be healed, the blocks preventing your acid reflux from naturally healing need to be removed.

Medication for your acid reflux doesn’t remove the blocks to healing; it only blocks the effects of what is really causing your acid reflux.

The more you learn the clearer it all becomes.

Read on . . .

The big business of treating your acid reflux with medication earns an obscene amount of money getting you to take drugs to treat acid indigestion and Gastro-Esophageal Acid Reflux Disease (GERD) symptoms . . . over and over again and again.

It is your choice whether you want to allow your own built-in healing intelligence to naturally cure your acid reflux, or chose to forsake all natural means of getting better for medication.

The problem here is people aren’t free of biased influence to make a fair choice . . . a choice that seems obvious to you and me.

When all the available information regarding acid reflux is about medication and nothing is said about folk remedies and ancient healing wisdom . . . it’s easy to see why acid reflux is pandemic today.

Most people don’t do their own due diligence like you are. They just settle for whatever the television, paper or radio happens to blurt out at them.

In a world where people are sick and dying the big business of selling medicine is growing by more than 50% every year . . . all while our so-called American economy collapses.

Your acid reflux medication is supporting America’s bottom line, in the worst way. As the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) grows you and millions of other acid reflux customers just keep buying more medication and keep staying sick.

There’s no profit for them to tell you how to solve your acid reflux problems. In fact powerful multinational corporations spend more money advertising biased information than they do developing medication.

These corporations have tricked the public into believing they are people like you and I . . . legally they may be represented that way for now, but you know as well as I, corporations have no soul.

As you may already know money is created by corporations who make problems and then sell us a temporary solution. Your acid reflux problem is a reaction to a harmful Western dietary pattern called the Standard American Diet (SAD). This is a subsidized program where Big Food corporations feed you processed food stuff packed with additives and chemicals that do harm to your digestive system and more.

Big Food, Big Agri and Big Chem are an arm of Big Medicine . . .

So don’t be mistaken, treating your acid reflux with medication isn’t the same as being healed of acid reflux disease. Address the root cause and the acid reflux symptoms will stop, treat the symptoms with medication and ‘the cause’ remains your problem.

Acid Alternative Reflux Treatment

An alternative treatment for acid reflux should address more than the symptoms of acid indigestion, heartburn and acid reflux.

Nothing ever happens at the symptom level, change is ONLY possible at the causal level.

Before you go running off to your drugs store to get an Over-The -Counter (OTC) antacid, you may find it in your best interest to see a doctor.

I know heartburn doesn’t sound like something to see a physician or licensed health practitioner over . . . but it is.

Millions of acid reflux sufferers make the mistake of treating their acid reflux symptoms as if they were caused from too much stomach acid. When they do that, they risk the danger of simple heartburn symptoms escalating into life threatening health conditions like acid rebound, GERD and throat cancer.

Fact is most people actually suffer from acid reflux symptoms because of quite the opposite reason; they have too little stomach acid.

The best thing you can do is make sure you are treating your own acid reflux symptoms correctly.

When your acid reflux, heartburn and acid indigestion symptoms are really persistent you will want to request that you have a stomach acid test.

Acid indigestion, heartburn and acid reflux are some of the most mis-treated and mis-diagnosed health problems in America.

The drug companies depend on you and your doctor believing the Direct-to-Consumer advertising spiels you’ve been bombarded with all your life.

It’s vital you question everything, even if your doctor tells you something is true, verify it. Never be afraid to ask questions and if you don’t feel you got a good answer, then get 2 and 3 medical opinions. Learn to investigate acid reflux and other health issues yourself. If you do your due diligence, you’ll naturally ask better questions about how to best treat your acid reflux.

The treatment for increasing your stomach acid and your ability to properly digest foods is totally different then the treatment for acid reflux caused from lack of digestive acids and enzymes.

Your stomach as well as your entire enteric digestive system depends on you choosing a treatment that will provide adequate nutrition. The right eating habits can help, however if your ability to digest your food down into molecular sized nutrients is inhibited from lack of stomach acid and acid reflux symptoms . . . eating right may only be part of the right treatment for your acid reflux symptoms.
