GERD is usually caused by changes in the barrier between the stomach and the esophagus, including abnormal relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter. Normally holds the top of the stomach closed, impaired expulsion of gastric reflux from the esophagus, or a hiatal hernia. These changes may be permanent or temporary.

The symptoms can be abject misery: debilitating stomach cramps, searing abdominal pain, an excruciating, rising burn, acid-filled hiccups, constant sleep disturbance, tightened throat, and even the rare but terrifying bouts of choking from nighttime acid inhalation. I’m talking of course about acid reflux or GERD as it’s commonly called these days.

Statistics suggest that 25-30% of American adults experience GERD related heartburn multiple times a week. Of all the pharmaceutical categories, proton pump inhibitors (a predominant prescription for GERD) have ranked consistently in the top twenty for years. And that doesn’t even take into account the old-fashioned antacids like Tums and Rolaids that people pop like candy. What, for the love, is going on here? It used to be heartburn was generally confined to women in their last months of pregnancy or to the annual Thanksgiving overindulgence. It certainly wasn’t a chronic condition plaguing a large percentage of the population. I sense a familiar pattern here, no?

The standard explanation for GERD goes like this. When someone suffers from a bout of heartburn, acid in the stomach essentially rises into the esophagus following a spontaneous lapse of the lower esophageal sphincter. Although the stomach lining can inherently withstand the caustic digestive acid, the esophagus has no such protection. The result of the chemical invasion is the characteristic pain and cramping those with reflux experience.

GERD is an excessive production of stomach acid. GERD sufferers are advised to steer clear of common “trigger” foods like chocolate, alcohol, mint, citrus, tomatoes, onions, and spicy dishes, and (drum roll, please) fatty foods because they contribute to what’s known as slow stomach emptying, which can make GERD symptoms feel worse.

GERD is an overreaction of the immune system to substances that it feels is not appropriate, better known as an allergic reaction. Here are a few things you can do to support healthy digestion:

  • Take an HCl or other digestive enzyme supplement for at least a few weeks if not months (if your reflux is bad).
  • Try old-fashioned bitters (remember those?) with or after each meal which can encourage better digestion.
  • Repopulate your system with healthy bacteria with hefty probiotics (e.g. Primal Flora) and frequent fermented foods.
  • Up your intake of anti-inflammatory omega-3s

When you are having an allergic reaction, all kinds of chemical unnatural overreactions are happening. I know a number of people who’ve felt utterly wrecked by their long-term battles with GERD. I’ve heard stories from folks (on medication, yes) who said they would get a bad bout of GERD and be in agony for days unable to eat anything, unable to sleep or even find a comfortable position. When they were finally able to lick the condition, they felt they finally got their lives back.

Natural Health Relief Strategies stops the body from reacting negatively to the allergen and when this happens the body restores the normal functioning of the digestive tract and the GERD disappears like magic. No drugs and no more discomfort. Solutions that were almost impossible just a few years ago are now commonplace. Once your allergies are eliminated, everything works better. Put your disbelief aside and get your life back.
