Natural Treatment for GERD

The natural treatment for GERD will be whatever takes away the root cause of your GERD.

Gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) is basically heartburn gone wild.

Seriously millions of people who mistreat their simple heartburn become cash cows for the acid reflux and GERD industries.

No one would ever get GERD if they used a natural remedy for their heartburn instead of falling for antacid treatments.

For every antacid a heartburn sufferer pops there is a potential GERD patient in the making.

It’s NOT natural to use drugs to block symptoms of heartburn, this kind of MIS- treatment of heartburn encourages people to ignore and eventually forget about their heartburn and GERD symptoms and causes.

The better the antacid product blocks a person’s heartburn or GERD symptoms the more likely the acid indigestion issue will inflame into a progressively worse condition.

Let’s follow the trail to solve the crime.

You start thinking it’s natural to have heartburn after years of eating foods packed with chemicals and virtually empty of any significant nutritional value. Then you think it’s acceptable for you to self treat your condition with chemical products carelessly and conveniently marketed to make a profit off you.

These antacids you use as a treatment to cover up your heartburn symptoms allow you to go further and further down the road to illness, plus they are also contributing heavy metals into your body to weaken your immune system more.

Soon the antacid wears off and your heartburn flares up with a vengeance . . . so you see your doctor for a stronger antacid, not even thinking maybe the treatment is actually causing your heartburn to become more like advanced GERD.

Naturally your doctor signs your prescription for a Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPI) as a treatment to chemically stop the cells that make stomach acid from working at all. These PPIs are notorious for being addictive physiologically and after going through treatment for a while you need your doctor’s help getting off them, because your symptoms are getting louder.

Now IF your doctor tested you to see if you actually had any stomach acid in the first place, then you’re still in trouble because PPIs cause acid rebound.

Acid rebound doesn’t have a treatment, because the drug treatment causes it, so now you notice your heartburn pain is like the lake of fire, your own little personal Hell deep in your throat.

Next treatment you’ll need is for hiatal hernia, probably surgery and a protocol to force you to eat better . . . which is really all you needed to do in the first place before ever having sought drug treatment for heartburn.

The natural treatment for GERD according to most doctors and pharmacists is to block the signals of your body and upgrade medication when the health problem blossoms from heartburn to GERD and beyond to surgery.

Natural treatment is not an option for GERD, you want to be CURED . . . patient bewares!

Natural Treatment for Pregnant Women With Heartburn

Pregnancy often brings a number of ailments, including heartburn, that has the soon to be mother reaching for natural solutions so that she can find relief without harming the baby. If you’re looking for a natural treatment for pregnant women with heartburn, you’ve come to the right place. There are a number of things you can do naturally to help relieve your heartburn without harming your baby. Here are just a few:

Heartburn tends to plague pregnant women, so in anticipation of that take simple steps to avoid heartburn before it starts.

  • First, try not to stress. Yes, pregnancy is a stressful time. Will the baby be healthy? Will we be able to financially handle this child? Will we be good parents? Will we be able to properly provide for this child? And on and on. However, stress can cause all kinds of problems, some more severe than heartburn, like early labor. So, relax. Get a massage, go for a walk, curl up with a good book, just take some time for yourself. It will help you reduce your heartburn and keep the baby safe.
  • Second, avoid foods that are known to cause heartburn. Your specific pregnancy may bring special triggers to you, but some common ones are garlic, onions and citrus fruits and juices. Caffeine and alcohol also cause heartburn, but hopefully you’re already modifying your intake of those chemicals due their potentially harmful effects on the baby.
  • Third, try not to eat too close to bed time. Although pregnancy cravings can be intense and demand food at strange hours, try to control what you eat and when you eat to avoid a bout of heartburn. Lying down too close to eating allows food and stomach acids to meander into your esophagus, which causes heartburn pain. Eating at least two hours before you lie down can help prevent this. If a craving is just too strong to resist, try propping yourself up with a pillow to help keep your digestive tract aligned and make it more difficult for acids to move upwards.

If you already have a bad case of heartburn, don’t despair! There are a number of things you can do that will naturally help neutralize the acid and relieve your pain.

  • First, try the simplest solution. Drink a glass of water. This will help flush your digestive tract and dilute excess acids in your stomach that might be irritating your esophagus.
  • Ginger has long been used to help settle upset stomachs. So, try a glass of ginger tea, or eat some candied ginger to help soothe your heartburn.
  • Apples have also been found recently to help some people get over their heartburn pain. Just one after a meal can help provide relief from acid indigestion pain.
  • Apple cider vinegar can also help to neutralize acids in your stomach. All it takes is a tablespoon diluted in a full glass of water to help alleviate heartburn pain.

The Reflux Remedy Report contains these and many other holistic tips for reliving your worst heartburn symptoms. Log on to to see additional natural treatments for pregnant women with heartburn.

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.
