The SHOCKING Truth About Acid Reflux
Most of us think too much acid in the stomach causes reflux. It’s easy to assume because hydrochloric acid, or stomach acid, creeps up the esophagus. You can literally feel it.
However, acid reflux is actually caused by TOO LITTLE acid in your stomach.
As we age, our bodies tend to become weaker instead of stronger. When it comes to our stomachs, we tend to produce LESS stomach acid instead of more. Therefore, it is essential to eat alkaline-forming foods that help your body produce MORE (of the good) stomach acid.
The 10 Best Foods to Fight Reflux
Enjoy the festivities; just make sure to include the options below in your daily eating. If you are curious, click here to discover the 10 WORST foods for acid reflux.
Water; Hydration is crucial. Make sure you drink purified water all day long.
Herbal Teas; This is the only drink other than water that can help reflux—rather than hurt it. Chamomile, ginger tea, and other herbal teas (no caffeine) can reduce inflammation in the upper GI tract.
Lemons, limes & grapefruit; I know this one is a major surprise. However, adding a slice to your water will actually improve your stomach’s ability to keep the LES valve closed, sealing the acid in tight.
Dark Leafy Greens; Greens are rich in magnesium and other minerals that fight acid along the GI tract and elsewhere in your body.
Coconut. All coconut products help soothe inflammation in the esophagus. Tonight, drink this warm, delicious, and opulent golden coconut mylk before bed to calm the burn.
Artichokes. All vegetables are safe to eat if you suffer from reflux, but artichokes, in particular, are rich in fibers that selectively grow good bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract.
Apple Cider Vinegar; Another shocker. It actually balances stomach acid and helps alleviate symptoms of reflux when taken before a meal. Mix a tablespoon of ACV with 8 ounces of water to dilute it.
Aloe. The aloe plant naturally helps soothe inflammation, so many people find it helps with the symptoms of acid reflux. Drink a half cup of aloe vera juice before meals.
Parsley. In all my years of practice, parsley is the clear herbal winner for soothing and settling my patient’s stomachs.
Salt. Alkaline mineral salts will supply your stomach with chloride to produce hydrochloric acid. I approve of Celtic Grey, Himalayan, or Redmond Real Salt.
