Combat Heartburn With A Healthy Shopping List

By: Jenny Masters

Acid reflux is a malady that plagues many people, yet is surprisingly easy to cure with only a few health shop products. How often have you experienced a painful or burning sensation which rises from your chest, and spreads upwards into your oesophagus? This is the fire of heartburn and it can be stopped dead in its tracks. Thankfully, it has very little to do with the heart itself - the pain is only located close to this vital organ, giving off the illusion of actual heart-burn. I have personally suffered from acid reflux for many years and today I offer you the solution to this problematic illness. Healthy shopping is the way towards a heartburn-free existence. Replace triggers (which I will mention later) and feel the difference, instantly.

Prescription medicine for acid reflux can usually cause nasty side effects. This is why we turn to health shop products, such as natural herbal tinctures and other balms, to cure us. All-natural ingredients such as apple cider vinegar have also been show to relieve acid reflux by naturalising excess stomach acids. Use this information wisely. It can save you from the nasty side-effects of prescription medicines. It is important, however, to monitor your progress with your doctor, as unchecked acid reflux can cause serious, long-term damage to your throat, which has the potential to lead to cancer.

• Smoking: End your nasty habit Other than generally being one of the worst possible ways to relax, smoking damages your body in hundreds of different ways, including being a major cause of heartburn. Surprised? Don’t be. Smoking loosens sphincter muscles, which allows stomach acid to climb towards the oesophagus. Smoking dries out salvia, which is one of the body’s natural defences against acid reflux. One of the number one causes of oesophageal cancer is the combined threat of alcohol and smoking. So quit today, health shops offer many herbal remedies that make the quitting process a little easier.

• Curb your alcohol enthusiasm Alongside smoking, drinking is another instant acid reflux trigger. When you have a relaxing sip of red wine after work you are doing more to increase your symptoms then you may at first realise. Drinking increases stomach acid, which is a bad thing by the way, ladies and gentleman. All prescription- and natural health store remedies are essentially meant to neutralise excess lactic and gastric acid. So why increase it manually? Lessen your drinking or stop it altogether.

• Lose weight, feel great Have you packed on a few extra pounds since the jolly festive season? Guess what, the more overweight you are, the more likely you are to have acid reflux. Reaching your ideal body weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle (which includes cutting out fatty foods) is the key component to eliminating acid reflux completely. Health shop products such as Hoodia Gordonii tablets can assist you with appetite control and acts as a natural weight loss supplement. Give your body the shape it deserves and eliminate acid reflux with exercise and a correct diet.

What have we learned from this? Acid reflux is caused by an unhealthy lifestyle and the worse you abuse your body with toxins such as cigarettes, alcohol and processed foods, the worse your heartburn will be. It is time to make a change. It is time to become a healthy shopper and stop heartburn in its tracks.
