Curing Heartburn

Heartburn is an unfortunate and painful condition that many people live with day in and day out, and while there are many medications and remedies for the onset of heartburn, the best results come through preventing heartburn before it starts. Eating and drinking habits, stress and activity levels can all contribute to the severity and frequency of onsets, but when recognized and addressed, these aspects can be much more effective than most medications or even diet changes.

Heartburn is the result of stomach acids backing up into the esophagus, resulting in the familiar burning sensation; in reality, this is more than just a sensation, the stomach acids are actually irritating and burning the wall of the esophagus. In severe and long-term cases, scarring and extensive burning can result, which is the condition known as acid reflux. Acid reflux requires prescription medication, often to reduce acid production, however, most cases of common heartburn can be actively prevented from reaching the severe stage.

Watching What you eat and Drink

Watching what you eat and drink is quite obvious, and while avoiding certain foods and drinks is recommended, it is the quantities of these foods and beverages that is typically the ultimate cause of heartburn. Two of the biggest culprits are coffee and soda, both of which are not terrible in small servings, but when over-indulged, can be lasting sources of heartburn. Reducing intake to one cup of coffee or one can of soda a day will have dramatic, nearly immediate, effects.

Foods, particularly spicy ones, are also the bane of those suffering from recurring heartburn; spicy foods themselves, in small servings, can be moderated and offset by taking an oral antacid before eating. Another handy tip is to drink more water with meals, as this not only helps with proper digestion, but avoids adding further sources of irritation.

Timing is Everything

Another commonly overlooked aspect that contributes to heartburn is the particular time you eat, and eating just before laying down is almost guaranteed to bring on a painful attack. Those suffering from heartburn often have a condition that allows stomach acids to leak into the esophagus, such as a relaxation of the sphincter muscle at the entrance to the stomach. Eating causes the stomach to increase production of digestive materials, and if you lay down too soon after eating, much of this leak out to burn the esophagus.

Taking a simple, over-the-counter antacid in the mornings, before eating and before bed, in conjunction with the above-mentioned strategies, can make a significant difference in heartburn occurrences. Taking an active stance against the causes of heartburn is not only the best way to reduce instances of it, but it can also help you to decide if prescription medication is necessary. If these particular steps are taken and frequent heartburn continues, medical attention may be the only option available, but it is much more likely that paying attention to what you eat and drink, as well as when you do, will be enough to substantially relieve most cases of recurring heartburn.

Acid Herbal Reflux Remedy

The herbal remedy for your acid reflux is going to address your heartburn, acid indigestion and acid reflux at the root cause. On the other hand non-herbal, unnatural treatments such as blocking digestive acid with drugs, only treats the symptoms.

The danger with treating the symptoms of your acid reflux is that you may be making the root cause of your acid reflux worse.

Acid reflux symptoms are the same whether the cause of your heartburn and indigestion is from too much stomach acid production as it is for having too little acid to digest with.

I can?t emphasize the importance of using natural herbal remedies for acid reflux symptoms quite enough. It seems the wrong treatments are too readily available and because of a lifetime of suffering through Direct-to-Consumer advertisements for antacids, people assume that?s what is best for them.

Even if your acid reflux is caused from too much digestive acid production, antacids are NOT a cure for acid reflux.

Blocking acid indigestion and heartburn symptoms never changes the cause of acid reflux, or any health issue.

I realize it?s hard to always think on your own after being conditioned to do what you?re told by advertisers all your life. I know, I?ve struggled with the same contradictory signals too.

Herbal remedies provide unique plant nutrients, cofactors and enzymes that artificial drugs and vitamins simply do not.

Everything about you from your nervous system, your immune system and enteric digestive system depend on plant-based nutrients. The herbal environment around you has both structure and function. Your ancient ancestors realized these important connections thousands of years ago. Drug treatments are only 160 years old, and they never cure anything.

Herbal remedies are time tested and true folk technology . . . drugs are toxic molecules prescribed in small amounts in more of an experimental fashion. Herbal remedies are safe, predicable and proven effective acid reflux remedies.

Like I said your acid reflux symptoms can be blocked with chemical treatments, but that won?t change the cause of your acid reflux now will it?

Plus you?ve got to be sure that your acid reflux is caused from too much stomach acid production or from not producing enough digestive acids.

For this you?ll need a stomach acid test.

Meanwhile herbal remedies for acid reflux, heartburn and acid indigestion naturally work with all your systems internally, using gentle nutrients, minerals and enzymes to help restore balance.

The miraculous thing about herbal remedies is they communicate synergistically with your cells naturally, allowing the most beneficial ingredients to activate what needs activation and balance.

Herbal remedies help your digestive system heal itself of acid reflux better than chemically blocking symptoms of acid reflux will ever do.

What is Acid Reflux

Good question, ?What IS Acid Reflux?? You?ve heard it called heartburn, acid indigestion or maybe even esophagitis and gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD). Whatever you want to call it, it is one of the most unpleasant experiences you could have short of vomiting.

If you noticed, it starts with something harmless enough sounding, like ?heartburn.? Then suddenly it?s involving indigestion and then medical sounding conditions that have something to do with your esophagus, or throat.

What happens is heartburn usually progresses until it becomes a disease and then eventually even leads to throat cancer. Sounds fun doesn?t it? NOT.

Heartburn feels like a burning near your heart because that?s where your Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES) is, right behind the top part of your heart. This is where acid reflux takes place at.

Your stomach acid is the culprit here. You either have too much or too little. It may surprise you to learn that most people suffer from too little stomach acid. The stomach acid reflux is a chemical biological eruption that forces the acid passed your LES, which is designed to seal off your stomach contents from entering your throat area.

There are things that can make it easy for your acid to reflux up beyond your LES. One is eating too much. As undigested food piles up, the acid in your stomach has nowhere to go but up. Acid reflux happens when food pushes on your LES causing it to open. Your stomach acid is pooling on top of your food trying to chemically dissolve it. This is a very caustic situation.

Did you know your stomach acid is so corrosive it can eat glass?

Another way acid can reflux up your throat is from lying down after a meal, this distorts your rib cage and diaphragm muscle, pressing undigested food against the LES making it open. The natural result is corrosive digestive juices leaking up where they do not belong, in your throat, lungs, mouth and sinuses.

If you lack stomach acid it is not unusual for you to feel bloated because your food is not moving or being chemically dissolved by your stomach acid. Imagine a zip-lock baggie filled with mash potatoes and soda pop. Picture the mashed potatoes fill 9/10ths of the bag leaving only one place for the soda pop to go . . .up.

Your stomach acid is like that, in fact, your stomach acid is made by cells in your stomach lining located at the top of your stomach. So it?s easy to see, whether you have a lot of stomach acid, or just a little, it?s going to be near the top next to your throat.

Once the LES has been breached it weakens your throat muscles, making it more likely to happen again. If it is allowed to continue this simple case of heart burn and acid reflux will eventually destroy throat tissue leading to GERD or throat cancer. That?s why if you take any drugs for acid reflux, use them wisely and ONLY for a very short period of time, because the cause of the acid reflux will be there until you find the natural treatment to help your body cure itself by removing the real cause of the problem.

Treatment of Acid Reflux

According to current U.S. laws that the American Medical Association (AMA) have lobbied to establish in America, it?s illegal for anyone to sell you any natural treatment or cure. Not that in any way it is bad for someone to provide you with a natural treatment or cure for your acid reflux, but because the AMA just doesn?t tolerate any competition.

Natural treatments and cures for acid reflux, heartburn and acid indigestion have been passed down to The American people for thousands of years, it?s part of our inherited culture of family values, which includes grandma?s acid reflux treatment.

Since when has big business become our master? I don?t know about you, but I find this current situation very upsetting. The treatments for acid reflux that are allowed by the AMA are limited to only drug treatments . . . that?s all.

If you suffer from acid reflux you already know these chemical products or drugs, so authoritively sponsored by the AMA, do NOT cure acid reflux. Truth is Proton-pump inhibitor drugs cause a new dis-ease called acid rebound disease. Acid rebound is a side effect of addictive proton-pump inhibitors that mess your body up, making your acid reflux symptoms many times worse, often leading to gastro-esophageal reflux dis-ease (GERD) or worse.

Don?t just take my word for it. Decide right now to investigate everything yourself, do your ?due diligence? and you will see, the truth is sometimes a scary thing but . . . never as bad as living with the lies.

Conventional Western medical treatments for acid reflux symptoms block the symptoms, but that is NOT a cure. The root cause of your acid reflux needs to be treated naturally, or your acid reflux symptoms will get worse.

Before you settle for any medical treatments for acid reflux, first try natural scientific treatments based on thousands of years of evidence and naturally happy, healthy people.

Western medicine is a front for making profits for share holders off sick and suffering people. The whole idea of Western and Eastern medicine is a myth. It?s just the new way corporations compete and brand their products on a global market, at your expense.

Food is medicine and medicine is food, whether you are North, South, East or West.

By forbidding any other ?alternative? treatments form ancient cultures like Ayurvedic, Chinese acupuncture and Amerindian, Western medicine has limited your choices.

Since when can a vender of a product limit your choices? Isn?t that called a monopoly?

Last I checked, tyranny was still illegal in America.

Medical treatments for acid reflux that don?t involve lifestyle and dietary changes are useless. In fact, just making lifestyle modifications yourself could be the best treatment for acid reflux of all.

Great men learn by observing nature and no one should be able to stop you from doing that. Observe nature and you?ll find the best natural treatment for your acid reflux, in fact the right natural treatment, combined with diet and lifestyle changes will cure you of your acid reflux symptoms, simply because you eliminated the root cause of acid reflux. Western medical treatment is primarily concerned with chemically treating your symptoms, not removing the cause of your acid reflux.

I hope you can see the difference between natural and unnatural treatment for acid reflux better now.
