Natural Relief for Heartburn

Natural relief for heartburn doesn’t necessarily mean your curing your heartburn. If you just want fast temporary relief you can take a teaspoon of aluminum free baking soda and mix it into a 10 ounce glass of water and drink it slowly . . . that works better than an antacid and you won’t get all the heavy metal toxins in your body.

The problem here is I don’t know if your heartburn is from too much stomach acid.

It’s a myth the antacid industry made up decades ago to sell their so-called anti-heartburn products.

Fact is 90% or more of people who suffer from digestive imbalances have a lack of stomach acid.

It may surprise you to learn that the symptoms for lack of stomach acid or for an over abundance of stomach acid are typically the same. You can have heartburn from an inability to properly digest your food. This lack of digestive acids leads to heartburn because all the food you eat just sits in your gut.

Without adequate stomach acid you can’t digest your meals. You need to have enough stomach acid so that your food chemically breaks down into small molecules of fat, carbs and nutrients needed to make stomach acid and other things necessary for life . . . that would be natural relief.

Having heartburn could mean you’re suffering from a slow kind of nutritional starvation. Just because you’re eating food doesn’t mean you’re getting the benefits of that food.

Natural relief for heartburn in my book really means anything that naturally helps restore your normal digestive balance.

Heartburn is simply a signal trying to clue you in that something wrong is causing your discomfort . . . your heartburn pain.

Taking some kind of antacid for heartburn relief may seem to make good sense at first glance, but considering that’s all you’ve ever been told, or programmed, to do really doesn’t even qualify it as your own idea . . . that’s not very natural.

Learn to listen to your inner intelligence. You have more than 60 TRILLION cells which all depend on nutrients and their cofactors to enable them to communicate.

It’s like an Inner-net of cells.

Real natural relief for your heartburn would quench your deepest cellular needs. If you lack stomach acid, you need mineral sources from green leafy vegetables to help your body restore digestive balance. First you may have to literally go through a fasting period to help your gut digest and detox . . . that would be a form of natural relief for your heartburn.

If you really are one of the rare cases where you actually suffer from an over production of stomach acid, then you’ll need to find the cause if it and eliminate it to truly experience any relief.

You’re on the right track, do more of your own due diligence, talk to health practitioners and maybe even have your stomach checked for acid content . . .there is a test your doctor can give you.

Lasting natural relief for your heartburn is to eliminate whatever the cause is and stop thinking you need to block your Inner-net signals, learn to listen to them better.

Nighttime Heartburn

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say more than 60 million American adults lack quality sleep patterns. This means 60,000,000 people have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep or waking up refreshed.

The main culprits are alcohol, caffeine, nicotine or eating too much before bedtime . . . which, among other factors triggers nighttime heartburn.

Researchers in Oklahoma City studied 81 people who complained of sleep problems and found that 30% of them suffered from nighttime heartburn and didn’t even know it.

In Brazilian study, researchers studied nearly 100 adults who had sleep issues and found people with sleep problems were almost ‘twice as likely’ to suffer chronic nighttime heartburn (a.k.a. acid reflux, acid indigestion, gastroesophageal reflux disease) compared to others without sleeping pattern issues.

Leading health experts agree that eating smaller meals more often is better than eating 1, 2 or 3 large meals a day. Nighttime heartburn is associated with eating large meals, especially before lying down.

If you have to eat late, make sure you’re up doing something for at least 3 hours before bed. If you eat something like a snack, make sure it’s at least an hour and a half before you crash out on the couch, floor or bed.

Nighttime heartburn can be activated by sitting down and eating as well. The proverbial coach potato who eats and watches TV will most likely qualify as one of the 60 million Americans who have sleep disorders and odds are they have nighttime heart burn.

Here’s what to do if you want nighttime heartburn:

  • Eat a big meal shortly before bed
  • Drinking anything but water right before bed
  • Don’t raise your head while sleeping
  • Eat acid forming foods
  • Get a milk or beer belly
  • Smoke tobacco
  • Consume less than 90% vegetables and fruits
  • Mix your carbs and protein together
  • Take antacids that cause acid rebound

Living without nighttime heartburn is a natural step you can take that also carries many other benefits such as living longer, being slimmer and having more vitality and overall health.

Heartburn and Water

When some people are suffering from heartburn, the last thing they tend to reach for is a glass of water, especially when we’re talking about severe heartburn pain. However, water can often be a very effective way to resolve heartburn.

Heartburn happens when stomach acids are allowed to escape the stomach and make their way into the esophagus. This causes pain and discomfort that often radiates from the stomach or mid chest area through the neck. It can be accompanied by burping, reflux (which means acid makes its way all the way into the mouth), and hiccuping.

Heartburn’s Causes

Heartburn has a number of causes, ranging from foods to clothing and stress.

Everyone has their own food triggers for heartburn, and frequent heartburn sufferers might want to keep a log of what they eat in order to identify their specific triggers. However, some common heartburn instigators are caffeine, alcohol, garlic and citrus fruits.

Your daily habits can also cause heartburn. If you go to bed right after eating, stomach acid can creep up into your esophagus, causing heartburn. To avoid this, try sleeping propped up a bit, or just don’t eat less than 2 hours before bed. Additionally, don’t overeat. Large meals are more difficult for the body to digest, and can cause acid to back up. Smaller, more frequent meals are an excellent way to prevent heartburn before it happens.

Don’t wear clothes that are too tight for you. Constraints on the stomach can force stomach acid into the esophagus even if you’re eating all the right foods.

Smoking also causes heartburn, in addition to all the other potentially fatal health problems it causes.

Stress can easily cause the body to go into overdrive when it comes to acid production, so try to stay as calm as possible to avoid feeling the burn later in the day. Take deep breaths, listen to soothing music, try some yoga, count to 10, do whatever you need to in order to keep stress at bay.

Pouring Water on the Fire

Staying properly hydrated is a constant battle for many people. Recommended portions of water continuously change, and vary from person to person. Generally speaking though, you should drink 8 to 10 glasses of water every day. Practicing this technique can help keep a number of conditions at bay, including heartburn. It works by keeping toxins out of your body by diluting them or flushing them away.

This also applies to stomach acid. When it comes to heartburn, drinking a large glass of water can help to wash stomach acids that are causing pain and discomfort away. It’s such a simple solution most people overlook in favor of popping an antacid.

However, depending on the cause of your heartburn an antacid may not always work, especially if your heartburn is due to dehydration. Occasionally, your body will signal dehydration with heartburn, and if you simply pop an antacid your problem won?t be solved and most likely your symptoms won’t be relieved.

When it comes to relief, heartburn and water go hand in hand. For more tips on relieving heartburn naturally, read The Reflux Remedy Report at refluxremedy.com today.

Natural Remedy For Acid Reflux

Searching for the natural remedy for acid reflux is the only way to eliminate acid reflux from your life. Medically speaking there is no cure for acid reflux, only gimmicks that attempt to sell you on compromising your health by striving for a symptom free state.

Being symptom free certainly sounds good at first and I know when acid reflux hits all you want is instant relief. Well that?s what sodium bicarb and water was all about- that?s a natural remedy for some people. Just be sure your using aluminum free baking soda and don?t use very much and if it comes back, you probably have another issue known as stomach acid deficiency.

It?s important to know that most people who suffer from acid reflux actually have a stomach acid deficiency. I know the commercials have been telling you to take antacids for heartburn, acid reflux and acid indigestion for your whole like- kind of subliminal actually, maybe even auto-suggestive too.

Fact is antacids don?t help acid reflux; they can even make it worse. Like I said a little sodium bicarb perhaps on rare occasions, but seriously selling convenient little anti heartburn candies should be illegal.

They can really mess up your health and once you?ve lost your health, it won?t matter how much money you give them, they don?t have the natural remedies or the cures.

Acid reflux can be cured, but only through natural remedies. You see what doctors don?t know, can kill you. They go to Universities and institutions mostly funded and controlled by pharmaceutical companies. In fact Harvard students recently began demanding Big Pharma get out of their schools and out of their books. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/03/business/03medschool.html

Medical students go to school to better understand how the body naturally remedies itself, or at least that?s how it used to be. The reason is the natural design within all things has a superior intelligence. You can spend your life just learning the amazing healing remedies of the cell, then another lifetime learning how all 60 trillion cells work together to remedy the immune system and so much more.

Acid reflux has a natural remedy and that remedy naturally works with your body?s own intelligence starting at the cellular level.

If you suffer from acid reflux, eat an apple- but don?t peel it. Nature put enzymes in the peel that synergistically help you digest the apple, which in turn gives your body the nutritional remedy you need to improve digestion and cure acid reflux.

Make food your natural remedy not your poison.
