Gastric Acid Reflux

Gastric acid reflux also known as just acid reflux is a gateway disease, which means it often ends up progressively getting worse.

The gastric acid used to digest your food is designed to stay within the boundary of your stomach. Your gastric juices are kept sealed in the stomach chamber by special cells and sphincters or sealing flaps.

If you are suffering from gastric acid reflux the best thing you can do is change your dietary and lifestyle habits. If you’ve tried that approach and failed you need to seek out a qualified health professional.

There are important things you need to know about gastric acid reflux. First of all if gastric acid reflux is a bad problem you need to have your doctor check your stomach acid levels.

Most people are under the false impression that gastric acid reflux problems are only triggered from too much gastric acid . . .

Be aware that gastric acid deficiency is very common, more common than actually making too much gastric stomach acid.

The various cells that manufacture your gastric acid require adequate vitamins, enzymes and their co-factors. Co-factors generally mean minerals.

Minerals are necessary for the proper function and absorption of enzymes and nutrients.

Fact is you are most likely experiencing a nutritional deficiency of sorts, which in turn is causing your gastric acid to reflux or rebound to places it isn’t meant to go.

Before you start making assumptions that your gastric acid reflux is exclusively caused from too much gastric stomach acid and start popping handfuls of antacids . . .you better be absolutely sure you’re doing the correct thing.

Treating your symptoms of gastric acid reflux with antacids when all you need is proper nutrition will make your health suffer, eventually making a gastric irritation into a full-fledged gastric esophageal reflux disease (GERD).

Once your gastric acid reflux becomes GERD, your GERD can progress into Barrett’s disease.

It’s estimated that 1 out of 100 people who develop Barrett’s disease end up with throat cancer, which can be deadly.

So before you start jumping to pharmaceuticals to treat your gastric acid reflux, first test your stomach acid. Testing for stomach acid is a simple medical test. Always ask your doctor first!

Home Remedy For Acid Reflux

Finding a home remedy for acid reflux is a trial and error process simply because everyone is different.

Beyond our personal differences there is an underlying uniformity, what leading scientists call ‘intelligent design’. Understanding how your body really thrives is the key to healing anything, especially acid reflux.

A home remedy for acid reflux will work better for one person and perhaps not at all for another because of several factors. Some people need remedies for a bundle of health problems including allergies and food sensitivities, not just acid reflux.

Sometimes the remedy is to discover what you are being exposed to in your home environment in regards to food, water and the air you breathe.

As you already know one of the main triggers of acid reflux is from eating the wrong foods. There is a very good reason these “wrong foods” can cause acid reflux . . . because they’re simply bad for you.

Often the best home remedy for acid reflux is to eliminate whatever is triggering your heart burn and gastric indigestion.

It’s not only the type of foods you eat at home, but what’s inside or on the food, including pesticides and herbicides, not to mention bacteria from foods processed with reclaimed sewer water.

Another hidden danger lurking in the homes of Americans that can contribute to your digestive health being compromised is Genetically Manufactured Organisms, or commonly called GMO foods.

Anything in that lowers your cellular energy levels will eventually upset your digestive system, which can become a hidden factor when looking for a home remedy for acid reflux, heart burn and acid indigestion.

At first glance you may think that there couldn’t be a connection between these things and your acid reflux. Yet the truth remains true . . . conventional medicine still doesn’t have a cure for your acid reflux disease, acid rebound or gastric esophageal reflux disease (GERD).

That’s why you’re looking for a home remedy in the first place, isn’t it?

Drinking a glass of milk is a home remedy for some people suffering from acid reflux, but for others the animal fat, indigestible protein, antibiotics, growth hormones, and lactose sugars can trigger acid reflux.

Drinking natural mineral water an hour between meals can help remedy acid reflux, but if you drink water, or any beverage, with your meals your digestive acids become even more diluted and can trigger acid indigestion as well.

So keep hunting for the real cause of your acid reflux . . . eliminating the cause is your best home remedy.
