Acid Reflux – Symptoms, Causes and Remedies
Acid reflux is such a common problem you’d think the causes would be easy to identify and treat. Many Americans suffer from bouts of acid reflux from occasional mild symptoms to chronic problems. Left untreated or ignored, it can lead to more serious problems. That’s why it is important to recognize the symptoms, and if they are recurring, to take measures to understand the causes and to seek remedies to relieve your discomfort.
What Exactly Is ACID REFLUX? Acid reflux is a condition in which acid backs up from the stomach into the esophagus and even up to the throat, irritating inner lining tissues. Left untreated, it may cause serious medical issues. Your system is best regulated when you have a pH balance between acid and alkaline. Diet alone can help but not in most cases.
What Are the SYMPTOMS of Acid Reflux? There are a multitude of symptoms for acid reflux and they include: heartburn, regurgitation of bitter acid into the throat, chest pain, dry cough, hoarseness, tightness of the throat, wheezing and a bitter taste in the mouth.
What Are the CAUSES of Acid Reflux? Acid reflux can be caused by a build-up of acid in one’s body and can be aggravated by lifestyle, diet, medication, weight gain, pregnancy and medical conditions. One of the most common causes of acid reflux is our highly acidic Western Diet that includes an over-abundance of acidic animal protein, processed foods, sodas, coffee, sugary desserts and salty snacks (you get the idea) and fewer leafy vegetables, legumes, and fruits which are alkaline in nature.
What Are the REMEDIES for Acid Reflux? An obvious remedy is a change of lifestyle, diet and habits. When one gets a bout of acid reflux the knee-jerk reflex is to purchase over-the-counter antacids and H2 blockers. However, there is a more natural option for the effects of an over-acidic system — and that option is taking Multiforce.
