Each time you turn on the TV today, there's a overflow of over the counter and doctor-prescribed medicines for the relief and prevention of acid reflux. As with antibiotics for any illness, there are theories regarding the disease and how well the medicines work.
From a medical perspective, acidic burn is a condition caused by acidic contents from the stomach moving forward into the esophagus, which results in a burning sensation. When the valve found at the lower end of the esophagus is dysfunctional, it permits the acidic content of the stomach to be regurgitated, where it might block this behavior when functional.
Another belief is that acid reflux is caused by one's eating habits. As the civilized world ingests more and fast foods, the bulk of the food ends up in the gut undigested. This undigested material turns into acidic waste, which causes stomach spasms. As we get older, the activity of the gut is reduced. This also decrees the power to produce hydrochloric acid. The result of the stomach turning into a breeding ground for infection which may cause stomach discomfort and acid waste irritation.
Whatever the cause behind your acid reflux, it is frequently a chronic disease. Therefore, most medicines for the illness only treat the burning and other symptoms and can not actually cure the condition. As medicines relieve the symptoms due to acid reflux, they can cause many unattractive complications thanks to the fact that they cut down the acid production in the belly, leading to a reduction in ability to digest food. These medicines can make you more susceptible to diseases and microbes transmitted and microbes broadcast through food. This can raise your risk for food poisoning and a large number of more symptoms.
Before you choose a medication or a natural system to free yourself of the burning that goes hand-in-hand an increased acidic backwash, you should first make a radical evaluation of the food you eat and your way of life. Studies indicate that foods like citrus, chocolate, garlic, onions, spicy, fried and greasy foods all contribute to and can aggravate acid reflux. Restricting your intake or avoiding such foods as much as feasible is a good first defensive position against future acid bouts.
Lifestyle alteration, for example shedding weight, cutting down on alcohol and caffeine, sleeping with your head raised 6 to 8 inches, and waiting three hours after eating before heading off to bed can help in reducing the number of acid reflux episodes you will have.
Although you should discuss your options with your physician, something as life-style improvements and diet changes can help to keep you from adding an acid blocker or acid reflux medication to your daily diet.
