Treatments For Acid Reflux

Treatments that block or even ignore symptoms of acid reflux can end up inflaming a simple case of heartburn to fully fledged throat cancer, unless your careful.

When treatments for acid reflux fail the acid reflux continues to force its way passed your lower esophageal sphincter, eventually allowing the sensitive throat lining to be scarred from stomach acid.

This scarring can lead to your throat cells mutating into cells resembling your stomach cells. This is a desperate act of your body’s built-in intelligence to try and adapt to a caustic situation in order to prolong life.

There conventional treatments for acid reflux merely cover-up the symptoms, yet do nothing to remove the root cause of your acid reflux.

So be careful in selecting any so-called treatments and if you chose any of the conventional acid reflux treatments be sure to always get a second and third opinion. You do not want to get stuck taking any treatment for any extended length of time.

Treatments are not cures and are only useful for short periods of time.

Acid reflux treatments typically start with sodium bicarbonate and water and when the antacid formulas leave you wanting more relief you can up-grade to a more dangerous treatment called proton-pump inhibitors. These treatments are powerful chemical ?inhibitors that block your body’s ability to make stomach acid. In a sense you’ve declared chemical war against the most intelligent biological system in the world, your body’s automatic healing system.

(Oh, by the way, you better be absolutely sure you don’t already suffer from a stomach acid deficiency- ask your doctor to double, triple check first.)

This can have dire consequences if you don’t have a compassionate and nutritionally educated health care practitioner working to get you off conventional acid reflux treatments a.s.a.p.

Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are notorious for causing acid rebound, which is a medical condition created entirely from these by man-made “treatment’ drugs.

Acid rebounds are symptoms of proton pump inhibitor addiction.

Other treatments are relative to the severity of your acid reflux symptoms and generally depend on how long you’ve been taking antacids and proton pump inhibitors (PPIs).

Hiatal hernia is associated with chronic acid reflux and some of the treatments are complicated surgical procedures. Another stage of dis-ease caused from ignoring the signs of acid reflux is gastro-esophageal reflux disease. This is a life threatening health concern that is treated with drugs simply because medically speaking, they claim there is no cure.

Medically speaking, means according to conventional, Western practice. You could say conventional medicine is biased toward treatment and against curing. There are natural remedies, which are un-patentable because they are “natural,” but have been proven to be very effective at reversing acid reflux and even gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

Why opt for failed treatments when there is a natural cure waiting for you to discover?

When gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) is treated rather than cured, cancer can be the result. Treatments for throat cancer are harsh and are the most dangerous of all the treatments.

Certainly prevention is the best and only real treatment for acid reflux, GERD or cancer.

That’s why being nutritionally literate is so smart, knowing what remedies to take is the best way to treat any health concern, especially something like acid reflux.

Treat your acid reflux with one purpose, to help eliminate the cause without ignoring the symptoms. That way you will make the best of conventional medical wisdom and ancient time-tested cures and go beyond temporary treatments.

pH Number of Stomach Acid

You may already understand pH, but let me quickly explain what pH level is for the sake of clarity.

The pH scale simply measures acid and alkalinity. The pH scale starts at the most acidic level of 0 and goes up to the most alkaline pH level of 14.

This makes the midpoint of pH 7 neutral.

Your electrolytes in your tissue are negatively charged mineral ions that create more electrons from the water you drink. These electrons control the perfect pH level to sustain life . . . ?at 7.4 pH.

If you have a disease your pH level will reflect this by showing an acidic pH below pH 7, the neutral mark.

The only place in your body that should normally have an acidic pH reading is in your stomach.

Every other organ, your bones and your blood must stay very close to pH 7.4.

Naturally stomach acid has a pH of about 2 and is made of about 0.5% of hydrochloric acid (HCL), large amounts of potassium chloride (KCL) and sodium chloride (NaCL).

If your stomach acid gets neutralized by antacids, you’ll experience acid indigestion, just the opposite of what you were told from the TUMS manufacturers.

It may surprise you that for more than a decade Swedish scientists have known that antacids cause more harm than good. Frankly, we’re finding out many pharmaceutical products are just profitable gimmicks at least and outright poisons at worst.

You see, more often than not acid reflux, heartburn and even gastro-esophageal reflux (GERD) disease are symptoms of a lack of sufficient stomach acid due to a very common electrolyte deficiency.

When I mention electrolytes, you probably think of Gaterade, right? That proves the power of corporate advertising right there. Gatorade is one of the lamest sources of electrolytes and isn’t any better than table sugar and salt, in fact personally I won’t touch the stuff.

Processed sugar dissolves your bones and refined salts build up in your kidneys. A better source would be what I call a smart person’s Gaterade:

  • 1/2 teaspoon of RAW honey or cane sugar
  • 1-2 teaspoons Celtic Sea Salt
  • 2 liters of distilled water.

You can also use Agave nectar for a low glycemic load and coral calcium tea bags for the ocean minerals.

The point of the matter is you need a good source of charged ocean minerals and water; the sugar isn’t nearly as important, in fact I replace the sugar with lemon juice myself. Be sure you never drink alkalized (electrolyte) water with your meals. The minerals are alkaline, which means they can neutralize your stomach acid. So drink your two liters of ocean minerals between meals or at least an hour before you eat a large meal.

A balanced pH level means your body is properly energized and that your “terrain” or body tissues are supporting a strong immune system.

Viruses, harmful microbes and even cancer cells can NOT survive in an alkaline pH environment. On the other hand an acid pH environment is perfect for disease and foreign invaders to thrive in because it lacks stabile oxygen, is high in metabolic wastes and lacks antioxidant ocean minerals.

Bottom line, you need alkaline pH, life supporting ocean minerals, flowing through your tissues and organs in order to create a proper acid pH for your stomach acid. If your tissue had an acid pH and your stomach contents had an alkaline pH you wouldn’t even be alive very long, if at all.

pH balance is the secret of longevity and wellness!

Acid Reflux Cure Discovery By Natural Principles

Acid Reflux Treatment

If everyone treated their health as a farmer tends to his farm Americans could easily eliminate at least 40% of diseases. The problem is we are taught the old school way of putting things off until the last momentas if we?re cramming for an exam at the last minute.

For instance, if you are suffering from from the causes of acid reflux and acid indigestion your problem didn?t just appear overnight. You?ve been ignoring or abusing natural principles that otherwise would be helping you stay healthy.

It isn?t what you ate last night . . . it?s what you?ve been eating for years. Look at your body like a bank account, you?ve been withdrawing more than you?ve put in.

How long has this really been going on?

Imagine if a farmer decided not to milk his cows every day and only milked them on Fridays . . . imagine if the farmer failed to read the signs and forgot to plant his corn until September . . . or decided not to harvest his cherries and apples until spring?

By not working with natural principles they appear to work against you. But it may be you who are working against the natural laws designed to sustain you.

Acid reflux and acid indigestion is a good example. Most people do not know that acid reflux and acid indigestion are a result of depleted stomach acid. Popping all those little purple pills (Nexium tablets) didn?t cure you acid reflux did it? Perhaps it?s time you listen to the signs and try working with Mother Nature instead of trying to cheat her.

Remember the old margarine commercial that said, ?It?s not nice to fool Mother Nature?? I couldn?t have said it better my self.

The wise farmer knows a secret most folks don?t . . . that is you must learn to give before you can expect to receive, especially when it comes to farming or your body?s health.
