Curing Acid Reflux Naturally

Acid Reflux Diet CureAcid Reflux is a condition that is all too common in individuals today. Also known as Gastro-esophageal Reflux Disease, it occurs when the liquids in the stomach back up into the esophagus. This reflux of stomach acid causes pain and can become a chronic condition. By making changes in diet, having patience and using some natural remedies, individuals can stop acid reflux.

Extra weight presses on the abdomen pushing the stomach upward and aggravating acid reflux. Overweight individuals should work to lose pounds and then maintain a healthy weight. A good strategy for weight loss should work slowly, causing 1-2 pounds to be lost each week. Avoid wearing tight clothes while losing weight. They press on the abdomen and lower esophageal sphincter muscle increasing reflux.

Some foods and drinks seem to trigger heartburn. They are different for each individual, but common ones are fried, fatty foods, tomato sauce, chocolate, alcohol, garlic, onion, and caffeine. Along with eating smaller meals, limiting or avoiding these foods can alleviate acid reflux to a point where other remedies aren?t necessary.

A detoxifying diet: drinking 1 gallon of water a day along with quality probiotics in high doses can restore normal stomach function for many people. Those who suffer from acid reflux need to drink more water than others to dilute stomach acids and normalize their pH.

Using two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar daily has the potential to make the entire body healthier. It may seem odd to many, recommending an acidic remedy to help an acid problem, but this works for people who have suffered with acid reflux. Everybody?s body is different. If ACV doesn?t work, there are many other remedies that might help.

Some herbal remedies that lessen the effects of acid reflux are licorice, slippery elm, chamomile and marshmallow. All these have provided relief when taken regularly in liquid, capsule form, or as tea. Any herbal product can interact with other medications. A doctor can recommend a safe dosage to use when trying an herbal remedy.

Relaxation techniques can calm an individual?s anxiety and stress. This may also reduce acid reflux. Different relaxation techniques such as guided imagery or progressive muscle relaxation are taught by trained instructors as part of exercise classes or through other resources.

Acupuncture is an ancient process involving inserting needles at specific places on the body. One small study showed that acupuncture did help people with heartburn that had persisted in spite of medical intervention. This treatment may also help those who have tried other natural remedies without positive results.

Seventy-five percent of people with gastric problems test positive for Helicobacter pylori, the only bacteria stomach acid can?t kill. The wormwood herb: Artemisia asiatica and garlic have compounds which optimize bowel flora and kill this pathogenic organism. Garlic cloves must be crushed or chewed in order for the active ingredient?allicin?to become available for use by the body.

Natural remedies may work better for one individual than another. Be patient, and try more than one option to find the remedy that will stop acid reflux. For more information on curing acid reflux naturally be sure to contact Reflux Remedy at today!

Acid Reflux Burping

Acid reflux often causes the urge to burp. But when the person burps with acid reflux, gas erupts with a flow of acid in the stomach. The reason for this reaction is that the sphincter separating the stomach and the esophagus relaxes when it is not supposed to and that allows the contents of the stomach that back up into the esophagus creates a burning sensation. This condition is commonly known as burping with acid reflux, and can be very uncomfortable.

Acid reflux can be caused by foods or drinks. Even medication a person is taking can cause bouts of acid reflux. Burping with acid reflux can happen after a person exercises, and some people get it only at night. The causes and symptoms may differ with each person, but it is important to pinpoint the triggers for the problem.

Acid Reflux Treatment

People who suffer from acid reflux describe the pain as extremely debilitating. When the acid in the stomach flows back into the esophagus it causes heartburn. This constant feeling of burning in the chest is what is referred to as acid reflux or GERD (gastro esophageal reflux disease). Though some people may experience heartburn every now or then, a person with acid reflux experiences the symptoms several times a week and often may require medical attention.

Natural Cures for Acid Reflux Burping

Doctors often prescribe prescription medication for severe acid reflex, but there are some natural remedies that will provide relief from the burning and burping that accompanies acid reflux.

A person’s diet is often the cause of acid reflux burping, so monitoring the foods that are eaten is the first step in determining the root cause of the problem. Noting the foods that result in acid reflux will help in eliminating acid reflux triggers. Since acid reflux burping often occurs at night, make sure that the last meal eaten is not spicy or containing trigger foods. Eating the last meal of the day at least three hours before retiring will mean that the stomach is empty so there are no acids in the stomach that will trigger episodes of acid reflux burping.

Eating several smaller meals during the day means that there will not be as much food in the stomach so it will be less likely that acid will build up in the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). Another way to prevent the buildup of stomach acid in the LES is to sleep with the head raised above the rest of the body. This will help keep acid out of the esophagus. Losing weight and reducing fat in the diet also helps.

A good probiotic will help relieve the symptoms of acid reflux, and works especially well in infants and young children. Many pediatricians will recommend prescription medications when infants suffer from acid reflux, but giving the child a probiotic made especially for children will work as effectively without the harmful side effects.

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.

Severe GERD Symptoms

As you may already know just ‘treating the symptoms’ of heartburn acid indigestion and acid reflux can lead to worsening symptoms called gastro esophageal reflux disease or GERD for short.

Basically it all starts with an acute case of simple heartburn, which because the ’cause’ of the heartburn is ignored and the symptoms have been treated with antacids and Over-The-Counter (OTC) stomach acid blockers it escalates to chronic heartburn.

Unfortunately millions of people are under the false impression that treating the symptoms of anything is the same as a cure or worse they are lied to and told there is no cure.

It’s really important that you do your own due diligence and question everything you thought you knew about heartburn, acid indigestion, acid reflux, acid rebound, hiatal hernia and severe gastro esophageal reflux disease.

Frankly they are all pretty much the same thing . . . I call it a timeline of gastric disaster. This happens with many simple health imbalances these days because everyone seems to think only ‘treating symptoms’ is a solution and IF that were the case then the solution for GERD IS the problem.

Severe GERD symptoms aren’t pretty. Watching someone’s health go further and further down the tubes is a sad thing, especially if it happens to be your own digestive health.

Don’t just take my word for it or anyone’s word for it, at least not until you’ve looked into heartburn and severe GERD symptoms yourself . . . researching GERD only takes a few hours of your time, besides your worth it . . . your health is priceless.

The trick to curing your severe GERD symptoms is to stop ignoring the original cause of it. Don’t just ask an allopathic doctor . . . ask a health practitioner that practices integrative and holistic medicine too.

Too many people are paid for selling drugs to treat GERD symptoms these days. You need to find someone who wants you to find your natural pathway to wellness, not just keep you as another customer endlessly suffering from severe GERD symptoms.

If food is getting stuck in your throat . . . if your throat is bleeding . . . if you cough more than ever lately . . . your voice is hoarse . . . you’re short of breath and have a pain in your chest all day, then you may have severe GERD symptoms.

If all you continue to do is treat your severe GERD symptoms, the root cause of your GERD will just inflame and get worse . . . short of a bonafide miracle out of nowhere.

That’s why heartburn, acid reflux and GERD drugs are so risky . . . you need to eliminate the root cause of your severe acid reflux disease (GERD). If you don’t you could end up with mutated throat cells called Barrett’s esophagus . . . 1 out of 100 people with Barrett’s esophagus end up with throat cancer.

The same remedy that prevents severe GERD symptoms cures severe GERD at the root cause. Remember being well is more than just being free of severe GERD symptoms; you want to be totally GERD free.
