What Causes Acid Reflux?
Most people resort to antacids when they have acid reflux and yet do not understand what causes acid reflux. Acid reflux, also commonly referred to as an acidic stomach or hyperacidity, is a concern that affects large numbers of people. There are many causes for this and they include irregular eating habits, eating spicy and salty foods, a stressful lifestyle, heavy smoking and excess caffeine intake.
To help alleviate acid reflux, I recommend the use of Centaurium Tincture; take fifteen drops three times a day. Centaurium is considered a stomach bitter working to help improve digestion by increasing both the secretion of digestive enzymes and helping gut motility. These actions occur via the hormone ‘gastrin’ and enhance the breakdown of food, which often helps to relieve the symptoms of nausea, flatulence and gastric discomfort. It is often the improper breakdown of proteins that results in hyperacidity, which subsequently inflames the upper tract.
Another important function of gastrin is to tighten the oesophageal sphincter. This helps reduce the tendency for reflux of the gastric contents into the oesophagus and used over a period of time (approximately 6-12 months) may actually aid to prevent this concern.
I would also recommend the use of Mega Probiotic ND; take one capsule twice a day. Probiotics play a vital role in numerous concerns in the body and these include detoxifying acids once they reach the gut, they also help with the efficient breakdown of food aiding in the prevention of stagnation; probiotics also help in the production of vital immune enhancing compounds.
Both remedies are perfectly safe for long-term use to counter acid reflux and are not contraindicated with any conventional medicines.
