Natural Remedies & Treatments For Acid Reflux | Natural Remedy For GERD

The ONLY Heartburn Treatment
that WORKS

Heartburn treatments can be generally classified into three main categories: conventional medications, surgery and the holistic/natural approach. These interventions vary considerably in the way they work, in the different heartburn causative factors that are tackled, and especially in the durability of the results. In order to choose the most effective and appropriate way of treatment for you, it is obligatory that you obtain the accurate information about the underlying conditions that cause the occurrence of your heartburn. 


What causes Heartburn?

Heartburn is one of the various symptoms of gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD), also called acid reflux. GERD occurs when the muscle connecting the esophagus with the stomach (the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) is weakened. When the LES functions properly, the sphincter allows food and water to pass into the stomach but prevents the highly acidic gastric contents from splashing back and come into contact with the esophagus. However when this muscle is weak/relaxed, it allows stomach acid to flow ("reflux") into the esophagus. Heartburn is the burning painful sensation experienced when the refluxed acids come into contact with the lining of the esophagus.


Medical doctors tend to treat heartburn and other acid reflux symptoms using prescription medications and over the counters. Acid reflux drugs can also be  divided into three main categories:


  1. Antacids, such as Tums, Rolaids, Mylanta and Maalox. These drugs neutralize stomach acid by creating a covering that wraps the stomach contents.


  1. H2 blockers that reduce the production of acid, such as Pepcid AC, Zantac 75 andAxid AR. These drugs are aimed at reducing stomach acid production in the gastric system.


  1. PPI (Proton pump inhibitors), such as Prilosec, Nexium and Wyeth's Protonix, block the mechanism in the stomach cells that releases acid.


While all the above-mentioned medical treatments can effectively relieve painful heartburn symptoms in the short run, there are several potential downsides to the regular/long-term use of these drugs. Heartburn medications fail to tackle the underlying reflux problem but instead change the chemical ingredients of the refluxed gastric context. For instance, a study that was published in 2004 in the Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery revealed that PPIs do not have any impact on the frequency of reflux episodes among GERD sufferers; PPIs simply transform the acidic gastric refluxed contents into alkaline. Instead of being exposed to acid, the esophagus is exposed to bile that is an alkaline and potentially more injurious gastric content. It is safe to say that the vast majority of acid reflux drugs work temporarily and also create a long-term dependency. Moreover, GERD drugs can have a myriad of unwanted side effects. 

Surgery - Treatment to Heartburn.

An alternative to drug heartburn treatment is surgery . To prevent stomach acids from being splashed back into the esophagus, the surgeon frees up the upper part of the stomach, wraps it around the lower esophagus and sutures it to itself. The purpose of this procedure is to strengthen the natural valve between the stomach and the esophagus. This is done to prevent the refluxed stomach content to come into contact with the esophagus.


However, reflux surgery involves many risks and side effects, such as bloating, swallowing problems, nausea, diarrhea abdominal cramping and more. Moreover, after the surgery heartburn symptoms can appear again over time, especially if a patient didn't make any lifestyle or dietary changes that have triggered acid reflux.


Conventional Treatments.

It comes out that the main downside of all conventional treatments for heartburn is that they focus on treating the local GERD related impairments (e.g. decreasing the amount of acid produced, neutralizing acid reflux, surgically altering the GI tract or tightening the LES). None of those treatments is aimed at tackling the underlying causes that contribute to acid reflux occurrence.


Acid reflux disease occurs due to the coexistence of several medical and lifestyle conditions. Those include genetic weakness, obesity , excessive fat ingestion, various foods, drugs and lifestyle characteristics (including inadequate sleep and excessive stress) that weaken the LES and prevent the LES from being closed properly. In addition to that, there are several factors that lead to the intestinal dysbiosis that can result in extra acidity, toxic overload and fermentation in the gastric system. Candida infection and certain dietary and lifestyle choices are the main culprits for this dysbiosis.


Did you know that there are all-natural holistic treatment that can treat heartburn and other GERD related symptoms by tackling those contributing factors? Holistic treatment is the only way to permanently reverse acid reflux and prevent its recurrence.
