Natural Solutions for Pain Relief
Millions of people with heartburn and/or acid reflux take prescription and over-the counter drugs that reduce the ability of the stomach to manufacture hydrochloric acid.
These drug remedies help reduce unpleasant and painful symptoms. Unfortunately if you stay on these drugs long term you may get side effects such as;
Poor digestion of protein foods leading to amino acid deficiencies, liver inflammation, increased risk of osteoporosis, increased risk of intestinal and lung infections.
Hydrochloric acid kills bad bacteria and parasites, without adequate hydrochloric acid in the stomach infections flourish.
Including alkalizing foods in the diet and natural anti-parasite formulas, probiotics and antioxidants are vital.
Sugary food avoidance is important as sugar feeds unhealthy bacteria in the stomach. If you over consume sugar, this will feed unhealthy bacteria in the stomach and will make your stomach inflamed and more prone to infections.
Add one to all of the below natural remedies to your diet:
Diatomaceous Earth (DE) when taken with food or liquids has a natural alkalizing effect. As the DE moves through the stomach and digestive tract, it attracts and absorbs bad bacteria, fungi, protozoa, viruses, endotoxins, pesticide and drug residues, E-Coli, and heavy metals.
Occasional heartburn: add 1 teaspoon of DE to 8 ounces of water when needed.
Recurring acid reflux: add 1 ½ teaspoon of DE to 12 ounces of water prior to going to bed, do not drink, let sit overnight. Overnight some DE will settle to the bottom of the glass. Drink most of the 12 oz. first thing in the morning, leaving what has settled to the bottom. Then add 4 or more ounces of water to this glass, stir and drink all.
Ginger has been found to have a gastroprotective effect by blocking acid and suppressing helicobacter pylori. According to a 2007 study, it is also far superior to lansoprazole for preventing the formation of ulcers, exhibiting six- to eight-fold greater potency over the drug. Ginger root has been traditionally used against gastric disturbances since ancient times.
Add two or three slices of fresh ginger root to two cups of hot water. Let steep for about half an hour. Drink about 20 minutes or so before your meal.
Slippery Elm coats and soothes the mouth, throat, stomach, and intestines. It contains antioxidants that can help sooth inflammatory bowel conditions. Slippery elm stimulates nerve endings in the gastrointestinal tract. This helps increase mucus secretion, which protects the gastrointestinal tract against ulcers and excess acidity.
