The Effects of Acidic Foods

You should avoid eating acidic foods for many reasons. Acidic foods can have adverse effects on your health.

Acid Reflux

Acid Reflux occurs when stomach acid reverses to the esophagus and causes chest pain and heartburn. Acid reflux is also called GERD. The esophagus is equipped with a sphincter or band of muscles that help prevent acid reflux. In acid reflux, however, the esophageal muscles become damaged and weak, causing them to not function properly.

Acid reflux is caused by many acidic foods. They relax the esophageal muscles and allow acid to flow backward. Alkaline food reduces stomach acid, which helps to improve symptoms. Acid reflux symptoms can be improved by balancing pH levels in the blood, neutralizing stomach acids, changing lifestyle habits, and eating smaller portions.

Treatment Options For Acid Reflux

Acid reflux is treated with antacids, which are acid regulators. These antacids can cause side effects due to their ingredients, which are salts of magnesium, calcium, and aluminum. Aluminum salts and magnesium salts both cause diarrhea.

You can also use H2 blockers to stop acid production. These medications only provide temporary relief, and they work in less than half of GERD patients.

Another class of drugs called prokinetics works by strengthening your esophageal muscle and helping you to empty your stomach quickly. These drugs can also have many side effects. If medication does not work, surgery may be suggested.

Natural Treatment

Natural protocols can help you not only relieve your acid reflux symptoms but also treat the root cause so that the results are long-lasting. Traditional therapies neutralize acid and provide relief from heartburn and other acid reflux symptoms. Natural remedies stimulate the normal functioning of the esophageal valve and soothe the lining in the gastrointestinal tract. Click on the link to receive a free consultation from one of our doctors at
