Alginic Acid Pills and Relief From Acid Reflux by Elin
I know what it feels like. I suffered form GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) for a long time. Victims of this terrible disease know what I am talking about. If the pills you take are prescribed more than likely they contain an ingredient known as algin that comes from seaweed.
This additive to antacids helps the absorption of gastric juices. If you are like me, you hate taking drugs. The pills my doctor prescribed for my condition cost over $100 a bottle. Luckily, I had insurance but many people do not. Maybe you are one of them.
There is hope and there is a safe easy way to cure GERD. In this article, you will see that you can cure this disease in less than two months without drugs or pills. You may have read this before, but it is worth mentioning again. Sleep on your left side. Why? The opening to the stomach from the esophagus is on the left side at the top of the stomach. If your esophageal sphincter, the valve that keeps hydrochloric acid from entering your esophagus, is weak it may not shut properly. The esophageal sphincter could be weak or, while you are sleeping, the esophageal sphincter relaxes.
If you sleep on your right side, the stomach can leak some of its hydrochloric acid into the esophagus. Consequently, you experience heartburn. I think you can see that by sleeping on your left side the opening to the esophagus is facing up and less likely to have bile from the stomach leak into it. Now you can do away with pharmaceuticals. No more buying $100 antacid pill bottles. There is a holistic way to overcome Gerd and acid reflux. You may have tried all sorts of remedies, detox programs or diets. They may provide temporary relief.
They all treat the symptoms, not the causes. Learn the importance of probiotics and prebiotics in the treatment of acid reflux. Why most probiotics do not work, what works much better than Yogurt, and exactly what you need to eat to complement the friendly bacteria.
There is a natural cure.
