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.

You were born to heal,
