So huge in fact that the effects are playing havoc with how your body is functioning.

It’s because people are choosing to drink anything but water! Well more like they prefer to drink this over plain old water!

3 Common Misconceptions about Heartburn/Acid Re-flux

Heal Heart Burn, Reflux and Indegestion

Do you or a loved one suffer Heartburn or Acid Re-flux?

It feels like an acidic burn sitting in your stomach or chest. It can even feel sickly as it works its way up to the throat and in many cases, is quite painful

People find this happens after excess alcohol consumption, eating a large meal, or going to bed too soon after a meal.

Acid Re-flux can be caused by over-eating, consuming foods that are high in sugar, too much coffee, citrus fruits, alcohol (particularly red wine) or even chocolate.

As a former sufferer, I know how horribly uncomfortable it feels. I used to rely on popping 'Quickeze' and 'Mylanta' which reduced some of the symptoms, but did nothing to resolve the issue long term.

My problem became so serious that I went to see a Gastroenterologist who said I had to be medicated for life!

Can you imagine???

That was not the answer I wanted to hear. I said “no” to the medication and began to change my diet and heal my Gut, for good.

I am now 100% symptom free!

I want to share with you some common misconceptions that may be able to support you or your loved one in becoming symptom-free as well, for good.

1. People with Heartburn/Re-flux often misunderstand how serious this health issue is.

Un/mistreated, this can potentially lead to stomach ulcers, scar tissue that blocks the oesophagus and can even increase the risk of cancer of the throat or stomach.

2. Self-Medication is only symptomatic!

As a Naturopath/Nutritionist I have noticed that people often self-diagnose and self-medicate with over-the-counter-medication and this is not always appropriate. In fact, these medications are only symptomatic.

Make sure you see a health care professional who can diagnose the issue.

3. Heartburn/Re-flux can be a result of EITHER excess OR in-excess of gut acid production.

For example…
When the acid is in excess, it creates a condition called hyperchlorhydria. Normally the pH will return to normal after a couple of hours post eating. In this condition, the stomach remains overly acidic outside of meal times, causing irritation and inflammation.

Alternatively, when your stomach acid is low it can also do damage. The food breaks down too slowly after a meal. This causes the food contents/acids to rise towards the oesophagus, causing irritation and inflammation. Even though the acid is low for effective digestion, its still acidic enough to irritate the oesophagus or the throat.

In conditions of low acid, over-the-counter-medications which are designed to reduce acid may NOT the best option!!!
