How to Get Rid Of Heartburn

People are asking how to get rid of heartburn, not because there are dozens of heartburn products they don’t know about, but because none of the heartburn products work.

It’s self evident that modern medicine has a bad attitude toward anything that really gets rid of heartburn naturally.

Basically Mama Nature would kick Big Pharma’s butt on the open market, especially with natural cures for heartburn, but even though Mama Nature’s way gets rid of heartburn at the root and any other health problems . . . she’s not patentable.

Because the business of medicine in America is the most profitable business on earth, there’s no way they’re going to let you find out how to get rid of your heartburn. It’s just not good business to kill one of the biggest cash cows in the medical industry. They’d rather you just treat your symptoms of heartburn instead.

Drugs that treat heart burn may get rid of the ‘symptoms’ of heartburn, but by now you know better . . . you really just want to get rid of your heartburn for good.

As you probably already know, treating the symptoms of heartburn, or any dis-ease will change nothing. Taking drugs for heartburn is a smoke and mirrors magic trick.

Magic tricks worked better on us when we were kids, but now that we’re all grown up and we’ve put childish things away . . .magic and antacid gimmicks just don’t get rid of heartburn and we know it.

Getting rid of your heartburn is a serious request. You’re not interested in getting rid of the symptoms of heartburn; no . . . you don’t want anything to do with heartburn at all-period.

What good does it do you to chemically hide the symptoms of heartburn? Knowing you still have heartburn means ‘the cause’ of your heartburn will still be there.

That’s why it’s a serious request, because if you don’t get rid of you heartburn at the root cause, it will only get worse and then you’ll be trying to hide the bigger flames of more dangerous symptoms using more toxic drugs.

You don’t want side effects, you want to get rid of heartburn . . . is that asking too much? Address the root cause, nurture normal digestion, build up your enzymes and healthy gut flora, eat more raw vegetables and less animal protein, and eat smaller portions more often.

Eat better, exercise and give your pancreas a natural break-that’s how you get rid of heartburn, acid indigestion, acid reflux, GERD and hiatal hernias . . . nip it in the bud!

Natural Heartburn Treatment

Your best road to natural heartburn treatment is to NOT treat your heart burn naturally or unnaturally. Treatment is a double-edged sword. The word treatment makes it sound as if you are doing something important to eliminate your heartburn, but there’s no such thing as natural treatment.

Get Rid of Heartburn Only drugs treat diseases and treating your heartburn with drugs will only turn it into a disease.

Treatment suggests addressing the symptoms of your heartburn somehow, natural or not.

Pizza and milk are natural, right? Combined in massive quantities these two natural items will give you acid reflux for sure. Milk is 97% casein, an animal protein used to make glue . . . it’s very hard to digest and pizza is also full of cheese, which is another form of milk, along with refined, enriched flour full of plant toxins like gluten, phytic acid (a mineral blocker) and refined sugar (an inflammatory.)

I can give you a thousand examples of how the Standard American Diet (SAD) has betrayed the best interest of your digestive system and left you suffering in heartburn ally.

The word natural can also be misused and misunderstood as well. Just because something is ‘natural’ doesn’t mean it’s good for you.

Back to the treatment of your Western diet pattern triggered acid reflux . . . nothing; absolutely nothing . . . ever happens on a symptom level. The heartburn treatment, whether natural or drug-related, is fooling you into believing you are making a change to your heartburn by blocking or masking the symptoms.

Your acid reflux symptoms are the effect of your poor dietary habits and the only way to rid yourself of heartburn symptoms isn’t to keep treating them, but by eliminating them.

It’s no mystery that treating your heartburn symptoms only allows the real cause of heartburn to continue to create bigger health problems for you.

Stop treating your heartburn and start eliminating the cause of your heartburn.

Did you know that heartburn is caused from a stomach acid deficiency 90% of the time?

Did the doctor prescribing your heartburn treatment test you for stomach acid?

Probably not. If you were tested and they found a lack of stomach acid was causing your acid indigestion and heartburn, they wouldn’t make much money off your problem.

Lack of stomach acid has been linked to lots of health issues not only heartburn, but adrenal fatigue and a whole cluster of symptoms they can sell more drugs for.

Why worry about naturally treating you acid reflux or even looking for other unnatural ways for treatment of your heartburn . . . simply eliminate the root cause of your heartburn symptoms.

Home Remedy GERD

If you’re looking for a home remedy for GERD, you may find that there isn’t any one sure fire way to get rid of your specific GERD. There are a lot of different things, and different combinations of things that you can try. That means if one particular thing doesn’t work for you, there are plenty of other things to try.

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, or GERD, happens when the muscles that control the flow of food down into the stomach weaken and allow acids to pass up into the stomach. This causes damage and irritation to the esophagus. People that have GERD suffer heartburn in a frequent and chronic way, often experiencing symptoms of heartburn more than twice a week.

Although this can be a debilitating problem that interferes with day to day activities, there are a number of home remedies and simple lifestyle changes that can be implemented to help relieve the symptoms of GERD.

Home Remedies for GERD

There are a few different kinds of tea that have been known to soothe symptoms of GERD. Chamomile and fennel teas can be very effective at calming the effects of GERD.

Additionally eating a handful of almonds a few times a day has been shown to neutralize stomach acids and reduce heartburn associated with GERD.

Ginger is also a very effective way to relieve all types of stomach problems, including heartburn that results from GERD. It can be consumed as tea, most effective as hot or warm tea, or eaten as candied ginger.

You can also try drinking a glass of water if you’re experiencing a particularly bad session of heartburn. Although it may sound too easy, the fluids help to flush your system and dilute any acids that remain behind, thus calming your digestive tract and soothing any irritation therein.

Papaya tablets have also been found to be effective at helping break food down and prevent heartburn as they make the digestion process easier for your body. They can be taken immediately following a meal and should be chewed thoroughly so that your saliva can react with the enzymes that will provide aid to your stomach and keep acids from becoming to prevalent.

Lifestyle Changes for GERD

There are also a number of things you can do to help keep GERD at bay as far as making simple routine changes in your lifestyle.

One of the easiest and most low impact things you can do is to alter your eating habits. Cut back on how much you eat at any one time, and increase the number of times you eat in a day. That way you’re still consuming the same amounts of food, just not all at once. That helps reduce stress on your stomach and digestive system, so that it doesn’t produce too much acid and aggravate your GERD.

Another thing you can do is change when you eat. If you’re in the habit of eating late at night or right before you lie down for a nap, simply stop doing that. Eating right before you go horizontal makes it difficult for your body to keep food and acids in your stomach. If you lie down on an empty stomach, there aren?t any excess acids available to move freely into your esophagus and cause irritation.
