Big hearty meals during the holiday season - 10 tips for to cure acid reflux naturally

Here are some tips for to cure acid reflux naturally without medication or drugs.

In my opinion chewing properly (20-30 times) in a relaxed manner is useful.  This gives rise to moderation in consumption as well as an easy, relaxed way to enjoy foods.  My own favorite supplement to sort out acid reflux is the mangosteen juice, and Kangen alkaline water.

(NaturalNews) Sharing a big meal is a time-honored tradition for most holiday celebrations, and over-indulging is often accompanied by food coma and acid indigestion. Swallowing gallons of antacids or sucking on chalky lozenges won't stop the pain for long, or keep it from returning. However, a few simple lifestyle changes and natural remedies may prevent burning chest pain, belching, coughing and choking.

Acid reflux is a common problem for many people accustomed to making poor food choices and overeating. Add holiday foods and drink into the mix, and it's a recipe for a potential ulcer. Antacids, proton pump inhibitors and other pharmaceuticals are the common go-to for most people suffering from acid reflux, and the uninformed don't realize that these dangerous medicines are not a cure. They temporarily suppress symptoms, sometimes. As their short-term effects wear off, rebound occurs, making the return of acid reflux and related symptoms even more serious.

Lesser Known Natural Treatments for Acid Reflux

Certain supplements, herbs and foods provide drug-free solutions for acid reflux and heartburn.

Unrefined, organic honey is very soothing and may reduce burning pains. Honey helps adjust the body's pH, neutralizing stomach acids almost immediately. A spoonful of honey at bedtime will promote an easier, symptom-free sleep.

Grow some fresh basil. Basil is used in Ayurvedic medicine to relieve symptoms of acid reflux. Chewing a fresh leaf or making tea from fresh basil soothes the digestive tract.

Licorice root creates a thin film of protective mucus called mucilage that coats the lining of the esophagus and prevents damage from stomach acids. Licorice root is very soothing and best consumed as tea. Licorice root can raise the blood pressure, so consult a health practitioner before using it in large quantities.

Indian gooseberry heals the digestive tract and protects against stomach acids. The herb is edible in its raw form. Add a sprinkle of salt for taste or prepare as tea. Too much gooseberry can have a laxative effect so use in moderation.

Suck on a slippery elm lozenge to relieve heartburn. Like licorice root, slippery elm coats the lining of the digestive tract, protecting delicate tissues. Additionally, it relieves coughing and throat pain from regurgitated stomach acids.

Use bromelain, an enzyme that aids the breakdown of proteins and provides digestive support. Bromelain encourages faster digestion and increases motility, which prevents foods from remaining in the stomach to putrefy and cause acid reflux.

Lifestyle Changes

Fortunately, for those suffering from acid reflux and related conditions, there are a variety of lifestyle changes that may also relieve symptoms.

Avoid over-the-counter antacids, which create a feedback loop in the digestive tract that produces greater amounts of stomach acid and of a chance for putrefaction and resulting pain.

Eat smaller, more frequent meals and chew food thoroughly. Saliva mixes with food, predigests it, and signals the stomach to prepare for additional digestive functions.

Loosen clothing around the waist after eating and avoid bending over or lifting heavy objects within an hour of eating.

Raise the head and upper body into an elevated position during sleep to provide relief for breathing problems. Raising the upper body may prevent regurgitation of stomach contents and relieve coughing and choking. Use either an acid reflux pillow wedge or raise the head of the bed by 4 to 6 inches.

By making a few simple dietary and lifestyle changes, most people can reduce the incidence of digestive problems and feel better. If acid reflux symptoms persist or worsen, consult a health care practitioner.

Autism and injury from vaccination

"My daughter Lorrin Kain was injured by her one and only Diphtheria, Pertussis and Tetanus, (DPT), vaccine April 27, 1994. It was on that day Lorrin became a statistic. I also became a statistic just for being her mother. The government felt my daughter's life was an appropriate exchange for what they refer to as herd immunity. She was sacrificed for the health of all babies..."

"The fact remains that I was not treated in a way that would be called supportive or caring at all. I quickly learned that I was the enemy. My child's life was not important and I was not important either just by being her mother....I had to ask myself, if Lorrin was the one in 250,000 that has an adverse reaction, then why didn't my family get support? Instead we were bullied and told to place our daughter in an institution."

Kangen Water now in Malaysia. Comparisons with Other Ionizers

A frequent question that comes to us - is that other companies are selling their products cheaper than ours.  Well if you are looking at the RESULTS that alkaline, high ORP, small clustered water that can bring to you - you would be wise to see how other machines perform - which they claim to do.

Here, we share a medical professional who had done the actual comparisons!

Dr. Dave Carpenter shares with us his experiences using alkaline water with his patients.

He had bought and tested numerous machines (8 machines!) seeking to give himself and his patients the benefits that he had seen and read about.  Those machines did NOT DELIVER THE RESULTS.

Until he used the Enagic Kangen water machine.  He sees the latter is far superior than the Jupiter machine that he had used previously for 2 years before he was introduced to Kangen.
