Indigestion, gas, and bloating are all forms of heartburn. The worst form of heartburn, however, is acid reflux. In extreme cases the stomach’s acid can damage the lining of the food pipe indefinitely. This is a disease that doesn’t usually have anything to do with viruses or bacteria. We all know that certain foods will trigger it. I believe that age has a lot to do with it as well. At least in my case that was true. Before I entered my late forties, I had only experienced mild indigestion from time to time. Once I turned fifty-five it seemed like every meal was resulting in heartburn.
I knew I had to do something fast. I was popping antacids like candy. I began researching the problem and discovered a couple of frightening facts. 1. Acid Reflux is not temporary. Most doctors think it is a chronic condition, that left untreated will last a lifetime. 2.The medicine most of us take has dreadful side effects. They deplete our systems of valuable nutrients like; vitamins B12 and D, iron, zinc, and folic acid. Now of course most of us take some form of multivitamin, so we can replace many of these. I did not want to be in that situation however. This vicious cycle had to stop. If you are constantly going through that revolving door, then its time to stop and take a deep breath without belching.
The thing that really gets me upset, is the profits the drug companies make without a thought of getting to the crux of the problem. They use government funding, not to find cures, but to get us addicted to relief medicine. If you don’t believe me, just stop taking one of their miracle drugs. Your symptoms will return, make no mistake about it. I believe that the pharmaceutical companies have overstepped their boundaries in the last few years. Lately one can’t go an hour watching TV without seeing one of their commercials. Some comedians have pointed out, and I feel justifiably, that these companies are making up symptoms to fit their medicine. So if you believe as I do, that we can, in many cases, with the help of nature find ways to cure ourselves, read on...
Some home remedies I’ve come across are; eating a lot of fruits, (just make sure they’re not citrus) and of all things licorice. It seems that one of our bodies natural defenses against the disruptive gastric acid, is a thin layer of something called mucin. Licorice has been shown to stimulate the secretion of mucin.
