The holidays are around the corner and with all the over-indulging and overeating, this can be a time of pain and discomfort.
Are you tired of being in pain after every meal?
Is acid reflux keeping you up at night?
Are you waking up with heartburn more than 2 days a week?
Do you think that stomach pain is a normal part of life?
This is not normal and you can Heal Your Gut!
It is crucial to understand that any amount of acid in the esophagus is going to cause problems. That’s because its delicate lining isn’t protected against acid like the stomach lining is. This irritates the vocal cords, causing inflammation, swelling and vocal problems. Acid reflux can damage your vocal cords and change your voice, negatively affecting vocal quality and performance.
Too often western medicine focuses on suppressing symptoms without paying attention to what is causing the symptom in the first place. Acid-suppressing drugs can make your heartburn worse, along with causing other serious side effects.
If you’re suffering from the constant annoying pain of heartburn, try these four simple tips to get immediate relief!
1. Chew your food completely
2. Eliminate the foods that trigger heartburn or acid reflux
Food and drinks that commonly trigger heartburn include:
. alcohol, particularly red wine.
. black pepper, garlic, raw onions, and other spicy foods.
. citrus fruits and products, such as oranges and orange juice.
. coffee and caffeinated drinks, including tea and soda.
3. Drink 8oz of water with apple cider vinegar, Manuka honey and ginger
4. Stop eating 3 hours before bedtime
