Acid Reflux: Natural Solutions That Work

natural solutions for acid refluxNatural Solutions for Acid Reflux

Acid reflux is one of the most common ailments of our time and can be caused by many factors including low Stomach acid, high stress, liver-stomach imbalance, excess bacteria in the gut and many other factors.  The common treatment in Western Medicine is to use Proton Pump Inhibitors such as Prilosec, Nexium, Prevacid, etc.  The problem with this treatment is that it can lead to other serious issues.  According to a study published in 2006 in the Journal of American Medical Association people who take Proton Pump Inhibitors including Prilosec, Nexium, and Prevacid for over a year have a 44% greater chance of hip fracture.  This is because PPI’s are believed to interfere with Calcium absorption as well as bone resorption which is part of the natural process that constantly renews the structure of bones.  According to the package insert many of these PPI’s should not be taken for more than 14 days with a 4 month break before starting a new 14 day course.  Unfortunately, most of the people that I know who are on these drugs take them constantly with no break at all with the approval of their doctors.

This causes many problems since it neutralizes the acid in the stomach that is there to digest our foods.  Oftentimes acid reflux is due to a shortage of stomach acid not an excess so PPI’s interfere even more with our body’s ability to digest our foods and therefore we are not able to absorb the nutrients properly.  This leads to many vitamin and mineral deficiencies that can cause many other health problems.  In addition it can lead to an excess amount of H. Pylori and C. Difficile bacteria and other naturally occurring bacteria in the gut since it is not held in check by the stomach acid as it should be.   This can aggravate the acid reflux and/or cause chronic diarrhea.  Also, food allergies are often increased as a result of this treatment.

In my experience there are many other ways to resolve acid reflux which do not include the above medications.  I was a long time sufferer of acid reflux and have tried many ways to resolve it including BioSET treatments, chakra clearing, acupuncture,  and detoxification to name a few.  I can gladly say I am symptom free at this time without medications!

From a TCM perspective it is often a case of excess stress causing the liver to attack the stomach which results in the generation of too much acid.  With BioSET and NMT I have found that it can also be caused by an excess of H. Pylori and other naturally occurring bacteria in the gut due to a deficiency of Hydrochloric acid so treating the bacteria with these techniques has helped to alleviate the symptoms.

Food allergies can also cause acid reflux so by neutralizing the food allergies with BioSET and NMT, these symptoms can be controlled.  Another possible cause of acid reflux could be stress and emotional imbalance which can affect us from the inside out.  Most of the modalities that I use including Intuition Medicine®, BioSET, NMT, EFT and more can address these underlying emotional imbalances to help energetically rebalance the body and resolve the acid reflux.  There is also a simple Neurolink correction that I sometimes use for acute attacks.

In my own experience I have done all of the above with decent results but by far the most effective and long lasting thing for me was a Detox formula that actually binds to the toxins in the gut and helps to remove them from the body.  From the first day that I started taking this formula my recurring acid reflux was gone.  As I continue to take it my digestive system is getting stronger and stronger alleviating my few remaining food sensitivities.  It is nothing short of a miracle as in the past I would suffer from acid reflux no matter what I ate.

So the bottom line is that there are many tools in my toolbox that can help remedy this all too common problem in a much safer way than drugs.  As with most complimentary medicine, the solution is a process of removing the layers to restore balance which may take a little longer than just ingesting a pill but it results in a more lasting resolution and better overall health and wellness.  I also believe in empowering my clients so they can take care of themselves with techniques that I teach for home use.  These methods may take longer than the 5 seconds to swallow a pill but the journey is well worth it.  Call today for a free 30 minute consultation to discuss your symptoms.
