general description and overview of acid reflux, GERD, heartburn, bile reflux

Acid Reflux or gastro-esophageal occurs when some of the digestive juices normally found in your stomach back up out of the stomach into the esophagus, the pipe between your stomach and the mouth. It occurs when the muscular valve that controls the entry to the stomach is weak or not working efficiently. The regurgitated juices include hydrochloric acid that brings the burning sensation so very characteristic of acid reflux.

symptoms of acid reflux, GERD, heartburn, bile reflux

Severe burning sensation in the esophagus and even in the mouth. The stomach has a protective lining which these acids cannot break, but the esophagus doesn’t have one. So, acids, especially hydrochloric acid give this burning sensation while traveling upwards, to the extent that you might feel you have a heart attack.

These sensations occur mostly when you lie down flat immediately after the meals.

Chronic inflammation of the pharynx along with cough.

Causes of acid reflux, GERD, heartburn, bile reflux

One of the main causes is hiatus hernia, a condition in which part of the stomach forces its way into the chest through a weakness in the opening (a hiatus) where the esophagus passes through the abdominal cavity.

Go slow with your meals!!  Eating too much food too fast is again one dominant reason for acid reflux. Stomach acids are forced up into the esophagus when there is too much food in the belly. Causes & herbal supplements & remedies for acid reflux, GERD, heartburn, indigestion

Lying flat - usually, people have the tendency of lying down flat after the meals, especially in the night after a hard day’s work. But then the gravity helps stomach acids go in the wrong direction.

Overweight people are more prone to acid reflux because of more pressure exerted on their digestive tract.

This problem is also faced in pregnancy as the uterus presses on the digestive tract as the baby grows bigger inside.

Alcohol, fizzy drinks, peppermint tea, coffee and smoking are the other usual suspects (see Helpful Dietary Habits below).

Food culprits include acidic foods such as pickles and vinegar, fried and fatty foods, hot spicy foods, onions, cucumber and meat extracts (see Helpful Dietary Habits below).

Female hormone progesterone and certain gall bladder related diseases are also suspected for acid reflux.

Stress and anxiety have also been attached with this problem.

Wearing tight fitting clothes, especially the ones which are tight at the waist, including belt, also cause acid reflux.

natural herbal and homeopathic remedies for acid reflux, GERD, heartburn, bile reflux

How to best relieve symptoms of acid reflux involves making lifestyle changes such as avoiding certain foods, losing weight, stopping smoking and exercising regularly. A wide variety of over-the-counter medications such as antacids, anti-gas or ant-flatulence drugs, oral suspension and H-2 receptor blockers are available to provide temporary relief.

Avoid the overuse of over-the-counter medications as they may cause side effects such as constipation and diarrhea. For more frequent and severe episodes of acid reflux, your doctor may prescribe medications such as proton pump inhibitors. If lifestyle changes and prescription medications fail to offer improvement, surgery may be recommended.

Natural Remedies

Natural and holistic treatments have been used for centuries to treat and provide symptomatic relief for digestive problems. Homeopathic remedies are safe and effective to use for people of all ages without unwanted side effects.

Helpful dietary habits in acid reflux, GERD, Ble reflux, Heartburn

Drink sparkling mineral water or herbal teas. Adding herbs like rosemary, sage, fennel, dill and mint to your food while cooking will definitely help in digestion.

Try to eat 4-5 small meals a day instead of 1-2 large, heavy meals. Do not eat just before going to bed and avoid eating in a hurry. Proper chewing is very important.

A healthy, fiber rich diet is extremely important.

In acid reflux, the list of what not to eat is much bigger and specific than what to eat. Certain foods and fluids to avoid are:

Salad vegetables like onions, radishes and cucumber hard to digest.

Too much liquid, especially just after the meals, dilutes the digestive juices. Hence, liquids in small quantities should be taken before or during the meals only. A glass of wine on the other hand will aid in digestion.

Peppermint tea, alcohol and coffee relax the esophagus sphincter thereby aiding in spurring of the backward flow of food from the stomach. Alcohol also causes stomach acidity whereas coffee causes irritation. So, it’s a double whammy for people facing acid reflux.

Pectin in unripe foods makes them hard to digest whereas high fat content in cheese slows down digestion, especially if taken just before going to bed.

Fats, protein and calcium present in the milk stimulate acid production in the stomach. Normal diet of milk is fine but don’t take it for treating acid reflux, as is advised by some wise people.

Chocolate, containing fats and caffeine is also a usual suspect.

Fizzy drinks expand your stomach having the same effect as that of overeating. Avoid them

some important dos and dont's (precautions) that need to be taken in acid reflux, GERD, heartburn, Bile reflux.

Never lie down flat on the bed immediately after the meals.

Mark the difference!! Mint tea aids digestion whereas peppermint tea aids acid reflux! Homeopathic medicine & remedies Remedy for pain and burning in the stomach, chest or throat due to heartburn or acid indigestion

Raise the head end of your bed by about 3-4 inches, using bed blocks or bricks. Pillows over pillows won’t help.

Nicotine increases the amount of gastric acids secreted. It also loosens the valve, i.e., relaxes the sphincter. So, don’t smoke.

Wear suspenders instead of a belt. This creates less pressure on the stomach.

Bend on your knees if you are going down. If you bend your stomach, you’ll compress it forcing the acids upwards.

Try yoga or some form of stress relieving exercises in addition to the homeopathic remedies mentioned above.
