GERD Cookbooks

Hippocrates, the ancient Greek who is considered today to be the Father of Western medicine said, “Let your food be medicine and your medicine be food.”

So today I thought I could share some helpful cookbook remedies for gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) and more.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is almost exclusively thought of as a problem caused from an over production of gastric, or digestive acids in the stomach. Whether it’s from too much or not enough gastric acid, either way this nasty stuff eventually erupts into the throat, or esophagus, eroding away normal throat, sinus and mouth tissues.

This chemical erosion actually mutates the throat cells to become more like the stomach cells, transforming your throat into a literal extension of your stomach lining, which can lead to throat cancer and sometimes death.

Left uncured the gastroesophageal acid reflux disease (GERD) often ends up as throat cancer.

Despite the fact that advertisers for drug companies would have you believe it’s just a common nuisance and that only “treating the symptoms” of heartburn, indigestion and GERD is enough. The truth is heartburn, acid indigestion or gastroesophageal acid reflux diseases (GERD) are all very serious problems that can be helped through proper nutrition.

There are two cookbook approaches to naturally healing gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). One is based on knowing you are making too much stomach acid, which is actually very rare. The other approach is to address the root cause of a stomach acid deficiency, which is extremely common.

Unfortunately, if you are treating “the symptoms” of your gastroesophageal acid reflux disease (GERD), it will only get worse anyway.

That’s why natural alternative and integrative medicine which use food as medicine is so very successful compared to allopathic or orthodox (Westernized) medicine these days. ?Natural cures come from eliminating the true cause of the dis-ease, which any good GERD cookbook will tell you is from under-nutrition and poor eating habits.

The idea of eating properly is to prevent any mineral, enzyme or nutrient deficiencies.

As I already mentioned, if you are suffering from heartburn, you are in danger of developing esophageal cancer, if you allow the cause to go unaddressed.

According to a new study a single mineral may make a significant difference in whether your heartburn will become GERD and your GERD, then cancer.

A GERD cookbook will give you the dietary wisdom you need to replenish this and other critical factors to help your body prevent, treat and eventually cure itself of all gastro intestinal diseases, such as GERD and throat cancer.

A good GERD cookbook will encourage you to eat plenty of raw or steamed vegetables to help provide a high level of nutrients, minerals and enzymes needed to fight the root cause of GERD.

Researchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) studied biopsies from 130 people with GERD related cancer using an X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy that detects toxins as well as nutritional factors.

The missing ingredient to preventing heartburn, GERD and throat cancer turned out to be zinc.

Zinc is an essential mineral you need to have a sense of smell, a strong immune system, build proteins, activate digestive enzymes, and create DNA. Zinc also helps the cells in your body communicate by functioning as a neurotransmitter.

A deficiency in zinc can lead to stunted growth, diarrhea, impotence, hair loss, eye and skin lesions, impaired appetite, depressed immunity and GERD related cancer.

So to help you find a GERD cookbook with the best recipes to prevent heartburn, acid indigestion and GERD related cancer . . . I’ve included a list of the top 10 foods highest in zinc.

Oysters: a 100 gram serving can provide 110 to 1200% of the RDA of zinc.

Wheat germ: 100 grams of properly processed wheat germ can offer 112% of the RDA of zinc.

Veal liver: 100 grams can provide more than 80% of the RDA of zinc.

Tahini (Sesame butter): Contains 10 mg of zinc per 100 gram serving, that’s about 70% of the RDA.

Grass fed beef: A lower fat source of beef contains about 70% per 100 gram serving.

Pumpkin seeds: Again this super food contains about 70% of your RDA for zinc per 100 grams.

Dried water melon seeds: A Middle Eastern delight, eaten raw can provide 70% of the RDA per 100 grams.

Cacao beans: Nature’s source of dark chocolate provides 64% of the RDA for zinc per 100 grams.

Lamb: Provides up to 58% of the RDA per 100 grams.

Peanuts: per 100 grams peanuts provide about 22% of the RDA for zinc

So when you’re looking through all the GERD related cookbooks out there, keep these healing ingredients in mind.

Best Diet for Acid Stomach

You?re reading this report most likely because you have recurring acid reflux, heartburn or some stomach acid problem and you?ve tried everything the drug store manager or doctor recommended . . . and now you?re ready for a better way.

You know it just has to get better than this and it does . . . read on!

Of course there?s a better way, in fact there?s a proven way to reverse stomach acid problems and improve your health all at the same time. It?s really ?SAD? how the Standard American Diet has everyone feeling like they have to depend on Over-The-Counter (OTC) antacids and stomach acid blocking prescriptions, isn?t it?

Especially when common sense tells you that your health shouldn?t suffer just because you like to eat.

Let me share with you some helpful information to help you return to your natural healing pathway. Because that?s what eating is meant to be, an occasion to revitalize, rejuvenate and repair yourself from the cellular level up . . . the best diet should be an abundant feast celebrating the miracle of health.

Stomach acid has been faithfully breaking down food into nutritional molecules since the dawn of time, so why all the stomach acid anxiety these days?

Part of the problem is doctors generally don?t receive more than 3 hours of nutritional studies in most leading universities and medical institutions, because the schools are funded by ?special interest? groups.

These special interests do not have your best health interest at heart.

There?s no denying that antacids and other stomach acid drugs fail for millions of heartburn, acid reflux and upset stomach acid sufferers every day after indigestive day.

The Greek ?Father of medicine,? Hippocrates, proclaimed from the rooftops of the ancient world the ?Food is medicine!?

So what is the best diet to balance healthy stomach acid levels?

Today Americans suffer from stomach acid imbalances because they are not taught to believe in their body?s own ?built-in intelligence.?

You can call it the immune system, or know it as the vast matrix of 60 TRILLION cell membranes singing in perfect harmony you call your body, or you could accept the proven science of Intelligent Design.

Whatever you want to call it, it?s real and it all depends on the best whole food diet.

There?s only one little catch-as you already know, there?s always a catch. You simply need to support your built-in intelligence by thinking and behaving the right way . . . that means with ?your? best interest at heart.

Yes, it is that simple, yet great truths always are. You need to embrace a ?fearless approach? to wellness and longevity, which starts by how you decide to live, and what is living without knowing the best whole food diet?

The Standard American Diet (SAD) has failed us as much as Big Pharma has, because bad diet and poor lifestyle go hand and hand with drugs, surgery and other barbaric, out-dated medical practices that fail us all.

Here?s a list of foods that treat stomach acid imbalances by supporting a healthy stomach acid pH level:

? Apples (with skin on)

? Bananas ( skin off)

? Lemon water

? Baked potatoes

? Broccoli

? Cabbage

? Carrots

? Green beans

? Peas

? Grass fed meats

? Egg whites

? Wild caught fish

? Raw goat cheese

? Fermented soy products

? Sprouted grain breads

? Mineral water

? Vinaigrette salad (no iceberg lettuce)

Keep in mind steamed vegetables or raw whole food is the best diet. Providing more living minerals, vitamins and enzymes are critical for healthy stomach acid balance.

Add to this diverse diet of healthy foods a mild activity level, like walking and learn to eat your best food groups separately and those stomach acid problems will haunt you no more.
