Heartburn

Recently, Dr. Mercola came up with an informative page about heartburn. As rightfully described by Dr. Mercola—and previously by Dr. Joel Wallach, acid reflux does not result from too much acid. On the contrary, acid deficiency allows bacteria and yeast to grow in the stomach. They generate gas resulting in reflux and belching.

Recommendation from the Longevity Institute

- One or two tablespoons of the following old Vermont folk medicine remedy in a glass of fresh water helps lessen the severity of the stomach pain and the bloating. The Vermont folk medicine remedy is made of one volume of liquid honey mixed with one volume of organic apple cider vinegar.
The vinegar helps restore the stomach acidity and the honey attenuates the sour taste of the vinegar.
Shake well and store refrigerated.

- It is also recommended:

A) To always chew food thoroughly. Introducing saliva into the food as you chew will get the digestion process off to a good start.
B) Not to drink very much liquid while eating a meal. Also trying to limit fluids for 30 minutes before you eat and for an hour afterward.
C) Not to overeat. Leave that extra little bit of room for dessert, and then skip it.
D) To eliminate from the diet foods that have refined sugars. Sugars tend to destabilize the stomach, decreasing the efficiency of the digestion and creating gas.
E)To avoid caffeine and fried foods. Caffeine stops starch digestion and can impair acid production.
