How to get your acid reflux under control
Proper digestion is extremely important to ensure optimal health. Incomplete or improper digestion of food is one of the main causes of many diseases. The problem is eating healthy, high quality food and nutritional products are inefficient if these nutrients are not properly absorbed and in turn these incompletely digested products are absorbed into the blood system. This ultimately leads to many serious immune system disorders and metabolic diseases.
The most common cause of an improper digestion, besides the lack of digestive enzymes from the pancreas, is a lack of stomach acid (HCl), which causes more serious health problems than its excess. In other words, conventional medicine attributes many digestive problems to the stomach acid excess (acidity) without proper examination.
The fact is, most patients suffer from a lack or even total absence of HCl, which has the same symptoms as hyperacidity, including the so-called heartburn (gastro-oesophageal reflux) shortly after a meal. Food improperly digested in the absence of HCl results to fermentation and the accumulation of gases that cause the return of food such as juices into the esophagus and the feeling of heartburn.
Other signs of lack of HCl are:
bloating due to gas formation from the fermentation of food, (not digestion)
excessive feeling of fullness in the stomach caused by inability of stomach to digest food
diarrhea or constipation
nausea and drowsiness
many allergic reactions
brittle and splitting the nail
enlarged blood vessels in the nose and cheeks (red nose and cheeks) if it is not confirmed by other reasons such as. use of alcohol,
iron deficiency anemia
chronic intestinal parasites and yeast infections
undigested food in stool
Based on an incorrect diagnosis, patients with lack of HCl might even be prescribed to drugs to reduce HCl. This can result in blocking the whole digestive process (and thus the patient can initially feel that the HCl reducing drugs helped) and many serious diseases resulting from it, which gradually appear over time, including serious infections and metabolic diseases such as diabetes and cancer.
Causes of lack of HCl
Western diet with an excess of industrial processed carbohydrates and animal protein, dairy products, refined sugar, dehydration – lack of water from which the acid is formed, and others.
Heidelberg gastric analysis was developed at Heidelberg University in Germany to monitor the pH of the digestive tract and determine the ability of parietal cells in the stomach to secrete acid. During the test, patients swallow an electronic capsule that monitors the acidity of the digestive system, while the information is transmitted to monitor acidity and evaluated. A total of 10 000 patients were examined. The majority of patients who had previously been diagnosed with an excess of stomach acid had actually suffered from the lack of it.
How to help your digestion
Eat healthy – lots of raw vegetables, decrease meat and simple carbohydrates consumption, avoid industrial processed carbohydrates, white flour, cow’s milk, excessive coffee drinking and alcohol. Avoid carbonated and sweetened drinks.
Eat 5 times a day in smaller doses
Eat slowly and chew carefully.
Drink at least 2 liters of water daily
Take digestive enzymes until renewed self-formation in the pancreas.
