GERD Natural Treatments

Natural treatments for gastro intestinal reflux disease (GERD) are simple to find and safe to take.

Most people don’t realize that the cause of their GERD is from treatments that only cover up the symptoms of GERD. At least a natural cure won?t have adverse side effects and can buy you time until you find the right natural cure for you.

When you fail to cure the cause of your heartburn, acid reflux or acid indigestion, because you blocked all acid reflux symptoms, your acute or sudden acid reflux becomes chronic.

That’s all GERD is . . . chronic heartburn.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, “Nothing happens at the symptom level. Change only takes place at the causal level.”

Natural treatments for GERD are always better than unnatural treatments for GERD, no doubt . . . but treatment still only treats symptoms of GERD.

The great thing about a nutritional approach to GERD treatment is at least you’re contributing something toward your cell health and the natural healing process, where as drugs do nothing to nurture your cell health.

In fact all prescriptive drugs are designed to slow down your own detoxification process by chemically inhibiting your kidney and liver. This action keeps the drugs in your body longer . . . otherwise your immune system will identify them as poison and eliminate them quickly.

I’m not a physician, but it doesn’t take one to tell you that if you have GERD, acid rebound or even the early stages of heartburn, the last thing you need is to burden your healing process with harmful chemicals.

Bottom line is if you’re even considering treatment for the symptoms of GERD, you need to think twice about what the real cause of your GERD is.

Before you had GERD, you most likely had acid rebound, right? Do you remember how you got acid rebound? Odds are it was an adverse side effect of taking a Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPI), like Prilosec. These drugs cause acid rebound . . .

Remember before acid rebound? You may have had a bout with Hiatal hernia and before that acid indigestion, acid reflux and heartburn.

Everyone is different, but this GERD timeline may help you gather a better idea of why you’re looking to GERD treatment. At least you’re looking for a natural treatment for your GERD, but if you don’t start addressing the root cause, odds are your symptoms might continue to get worse, leading to surgery or worse . . . even throat cancer.

Go back to the basics and you’ll discover the natural cure for your GERD, or should I say, a natural solution to help your healing system eliminate the original cause of your GERD suffering.

The natural treatment for your GERD is a step in the right direction, at least until you learn what will help you heal yourself using one of the many natural cures available.

Acid Reflux Surgery

Love to live dangerously? Then acid reflux surgery may be for you . . .

It may be a little like cutting off your nose to spite your face, but millions of people live with the lasting consequences of acid reflux surgery rather than seek the natural cure.

If your doctor says you can’t control your acid reflux with diet and lifestyle changes, you are either unwilling to try or you’re another victim of bad medicine.

Nothing could be simpler than curing acid reflux . . .

The nutritional approach to acid reflux uses whole food based nutrients to address the root cause of your acid reflux issues.

If you choose the pharmaceutical approach, long term benefits will be questionable and that’s why they have acid reflux surgery, one leads to the other.

This way you get the full experience of laying your life down for an experiment in medical insanity. There are always acceptations to the rules, but the fact is according to the Journal of American Medicine more than 106,000 patients die from properly prescribed medicine each year in the US.

Add to that massive number all the people who die because of malpractice, surgical mistakes and iatrogenic infections and its closer to 225,000 patient deaths per year.

Now are you sure you want to have surgery for a little heart burn?

The standard surgery for acid indigestion is called Nissen Fundoplication. This involves some cutting and wrapping of the stomach around your lower esophageal sphincter (LES), which is a flap at the bottom of your gullet that keeps food and acid reflux in the stomach.

After your acid reflux surgery the doctor will tell you to stop all the things you didn’t stop before, like smoking, drinking alcohol and caffeine, eating fatty foods and sugar . . .

If you did that in the first place, you would never had ended up having acid reflux surgery.

By treating the symptoms of acid reflux with drugs, odds are you will end up being a candidate for this insane surgery. I say it’s insane because 99% of the people who have acid reflux surgery could have been healed of acid reflux naturally.

Once you go down the pharmaceutical rabbit whole one drug leads to another and before you know it you’re taking Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs), one of the most damaging of acid reflux drugs or of any drugs.

PPIs increase risk of second heart attack by 30%, cause acid rebound and can lead to bacterial infections of the gut.

Frankly most people who end up having acid reflux surgery do so because of the damage the PPIs have done to their natural biological functions.
