Do you have an acid
|Most people have
digestive problems that create a variety of illnesses that we
see as they age. The main problem is with the food that they
eat. As has already been said many times, we eat more junk,
processed, and packaged food than our stomach can digest. We eat
more meat and protein then we should. We drink more unusual
drinks that are mainly sugar.
You need to eat more live vegetables and fruits. This will minimize any acid
reflux problems you might have.
Your body is designed to be electrically balanced. This is done by eating
both acid and alkaline foods. If you eat too much acid food or
alkaline food you move towards illness. Acid reflux is one of

Acid Reflux Remedies
Here are three acid reflux remedies that you can start using right away to
decrease the effects of acid reflux
* Digestive enzymes – Just before you eat, take some digestive enzymes.
There are a variety of types that you can buy in a health food
store – cost is about $15.00. Digestive enzymes will help you
digest your food in the stomach and lessen the work the stomach
has to do. But don’t take enzymes if you have an ulcer.
* Drinking water – When eating your meal, don’t drink any cold liquid. Cold
liquid in the stomach decreases the digestive activity and your
food will take longer to digest. It is best not to drink any
water with your meal since this decrease the strength of your
hydrochloric acid. If you have to drink water to clear your
throat, drink water at room temperature.
* Vegetables – Eat vegetables with lunch and dinner and decrease the amount
of meat and protein you eat. Don’t over eat since this puts an
extra load on your stomach and you may not be able to digest all
this food. Try eating your vegetables raw when possible since
this gives you extra enzymes and plenty of minerals. Any time
you eat bread eat it with some vegetables. Bread is hard to
digest and the added fiber helps its digestion and helps to move
it through the colon faster.
Just doing these three suggestions will help you improve your digestion and
help to relieve your acid reflux. Concentrate on changing your
eating habits and the types and quantities of food that you eat,
if you want to stop the effects of acid reflux.
