Heartburn / Reflux Info

“Following the Jewish tradition, a dispenser of schmaltz (liquid chicken fat) is kept on the table to give the vampires heartburn if they get through the garlic defense.”

Calvin Trillin

Heartburn, alternatively known as pyrosis, cardialgia, or acid indigestion, is a burning sensation in the chest, just behind the breastbone. The pain often rises in the chest and may move to the neck, throat, or jaw.

Heartburn is usually associated with regurgitation of gastric acid (gastric reflux) which is the major symptom of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD). It may also be a symptom of ischemic heart disease, though this is true for only a small minority of those experiencing heartburn.

Heartburn can be caused by several conditions and a preliminary diagnosis of GERD is based on additional signs and symptoms. The chest pain caused by GERD has a distinct 'burning' sensation, occurs after eating or at night, and worsens when a person lies down or bends over.

It also is common in pregnant women, and may be triggered by consuming food in large quantities, or specific foods containing certain spices, high fat content, or high acid content.

Heartburn or chest pain after eating or drinking and combined with difficulty swallowing may indicate oesophageal spasms.

There are natural health remedies available that may alleviate these symptoms.

Usually a shot glass with a pinch of baking powder does the trick of curbing the stomach and heartburn pain associated with reflux.

Ginger tea and peppermint tea have been known to confer some relief for people suffering from heartburn.

Aloe vera juice, Marshmallow, hoheria, slippery elm powder, liquorice root and bladderwrack are all great natural health remedies.

    I find it incredibly supportive for my health to have probiotics on board. I have been using "Inner Health" for at least 2 years now and can confidently say this brand has provided me with the health benefits a good probiotic.

    Self Heal Swedish Bitters is the Kiwi version of a very old and well proven herbal tincture.

    Bitters have been eliminated from our taste spectrum and as such most people will find it shockingly strong and bitter. Worry not, bitter flavour is what gets your Liver up and running.

    Pretty much everyone should take a 500ml bottle of this stuff in the spring season to help your body do a "spring clean".

    Take this stuff to cleanse your Liver and Large Intestine with a diet high in good soluble fibers. After that, your body will be able to heal itself of it's own accord.

  • Lifesaver since having Gallbladder removed

    star

    I had to have my Gallbladder removed in 2012 and started to suffer from intermittent reflux. It got progressively worse and also caused me to feel nauseous. I have learnt to avoid certain foods, particularly at night, but occasionally I will get almost instant reflux and after trying different meds, i decided to try this. This is absolutely BRILLIANT! I cannot believe that it actually works (tried several) and am so content knowing that this is a natural alternative. Both my parents also do not have gallbladders and suffer with reflux and they now use this too. I find it kicks in after about 10 minutes. It has even helped me with IBS on occasions. Please try it - it may be a life changer for you too
