Heartburn Acid Reflux Treatment – What You Should Know
After a long, stress-filled day, when you go to eat dinner — the last thing you feel like doing is chewing. But digestion starts in your mouth! If you don’t chew your food thoroughly enough (at least 60 times), it won’t break down properly and will just pass right through. This will cause heartburn acid reflux to occur.
So how can people with heartburn naturally treat this? By starting off their day with a healthy breakfast consisting of foods that are high in fiber and protein such as oats, eggs, or cottage cheese. This will help to greatly reduce heartburn, as it will aid in digestion.
When you go to eat dinner, try and consume lean proteins or a starchy carbohydrate such as a baked potato. Meats such as red meat or chicken can bring on heartburn acid reflux symptoms so try to avoid those at dinner time. And dessert should be eaten last! Being too full from the main course can cause you to slouch over and block your throat when eating your dessert. This can lead to food getting stuck in your throat and causing symptoms of heartburn acid reflux further on down the line.
By taking these precautions, you can prevent heartburn acid reflux symptoms from occurring after that stressful day of work. Just remember that you should always try and take measures to keep your gums healthy, as well as drink water throughout the day. Water is a great way to keep your digestive system running smoothly. Also, don’t forget to keep up with at least 20 minutes of exercise each day. This helps to activate your blood flow and also keeps the muscles in your stomach strong.
Here are 10 ways you can naturally treat acid reflex:
*Drink water after every meal. Water will help to move your food through the digestive system.
*Chew your food till you feel full.
*Avoid foods high in preservatives, salt, and fat.
*Drink Almond milk. Almond milk can help to maintain a healthy balance of bacteria in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract for those who have heartburn acid reflux and other issues such as diarrhea or constipation. This also helps relieve gas and bloating issues that come after drinking alcohol or eating too much fatty food.
*Do not eat foods high in nitrates. This includes meats, fish, and cheeses. Nitrates are found in plants, as well as fertilizers and fertilizers used in agriculture. While they can be nutritious for the body, excess consumption has been linked to heart disease and urinary disorders as a result of nitrogen in the blood, which can cause blood vessels to narrow and limit blood flow.
*Consume foods high in fiber. This food group includes veggies such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, radishes, Brussels sprouts as well as fruits such as apples and pears. Fiber helps to keep you regular and prevent constipation.
*Drink water when you are thirsty. Drinking during the day will help to keep the digestive system functioning properly.
*Say no to alcohol. This includes beer, wine, or any other hard liquor. Alcohol slows the rate at which food moves through the digestive tract, making you feel fuller longer after eating and reducing bacteria in the intestines. It is also a common cause of heartburn acid reflux symptoms when consumed at night after a meal that was eaten too quickly before bedtime.
*Eat foods high in dietary fiber and resistant starch (also called indigestible starch). These include beans, lentils, whole grains, and seeds. Dietary fiber helps to relieve constipation and heartburn acid reflux by slowly moving foods and fluids through the intestines. Resistant starch does not digest in the small intestine but reaches the colon or large intestine where it is changed into short-chain fatty acids which have a prebiotic effect. Prebiotics are foods for probiotic bacteria. Both types of fiber also provide bulk in the stool as well as lubricating it to prevent diarrhea and constipation.
*Try natural remedies to treat acid reflux symptoms such as yogurt or baking soda mixed in water. Yogurt contains lactobacilli that are beneficial bacteria that help with digestion and a healthy intestinal tract.
