Don’t ignore heartburn or symptoms of reflux disease, says Mansfield man

While I was in the hospital about 6 weeks ago getting a new J-Tube replacement in my belly, the hospital Gastroenterologist was visiting me and I told her of the acid reflux problem I was still having. She said, “you have the same problem my husband has had for years and he has been taking a non-prescription pill and he swears that it has helped with that problem”. Now for what I have that seems to help with the nighttime Acid Reflux. This has helped but I still get the night time acid reflux burn.

8. The acid indigestion pain thought to come from a “high-acid stomach” most of the time actually comes from a low-acid stomach that cannot fully digest foods. The undigested foods “rot” or ferment in the stomach creating fermentation acids that are the real culprits in heartburn, acid indigestion, reflux, etc. 5.

Is this a new side effect for you? If so, probably best asking your doctor about but I would imagine it could be IPF-related based on the leg pains that I (and I know others as well) have experienced.

I know if it works then it is probably worth it for you, but I just can’t imagine giving that a try. I’d definitely check with a doctor about the effect on medications (if any) or what it could be doing internally to you as I think baking soda has some chemicals in it. It may not be alarming/concerning at all, I’d just want to verify that with a doctor ahead of continuing to do this. Best case scenario, it won’t cause any issues and you can continue using it as an effective means to managing your reflux.

The typical American junk food/processed food diet is abnormally high in protein and low in high-water content, alkalizing fruits and vegetables. High protein-content flesh foods are powerful stressors to the acid-producing cells of the stomach, because pepsin (the protein-splitting enzyme secreted by the stomach) is most active in a strongly acidic environment. Each time a high-protein flesh food meal is consumed, said cells are challenged to elevate their efforts beyond the range of normal function. The concept of hyperfunction (i.e., excessive function) leading to hypofunction (i.e., deficient function) is one of the most crucial insights for understanding the true nature of health and disease. Part 1 of this discussion focused on the root causes and symptomatology of digestive derangement in general and chronic GERD (gastroesophageal acid reflux disease) in particular.

Once in the morning and once in the evening before you go to bed. Within about 15 days of doing this my heart rate started to decrease.

People with acid reflux find comfort sleeping in a favorite chair, sometimes never returning to their bed.
