Gastroesophageal Reflux-Related Blogs

Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
Could the water people swallow their acid reflux pills with be more therapeutic than the drugs themselves? In 2008, a remarkable study took place comparing a glass of water to an antacid and "acid blocking" drugs, in their overall effect in increasing gastric pH (i.e. making it more alkaline) in healthy subjects.

Did you know that pharmaceuticals used to treat heartburn actually increase gastrointestinal problems? Fortunately, there are natural ways to fight off acid reflux.

What happens when we take a multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical and pitch it against a farm-aceutical one, ginger? Acid-blockers are taken by millions around the world, daily, but they carry severe unintended, adverse health effects, not the least of which are gastric cancer. Ginger, on the other hand, has over 100 potential side benefits. So, which is more logical to use as a medicine?

Gastroesophageal reflux disease, also known as acid reflux disease, often responds well to dietary modification, specifically a wheat/gluten and cow's milk free diet (see articles below).  On the other hand, there are some evidence-based palliative approaches that do not rely on the chemical class of drugs known as acid blockers, and which include proton pump inhibitors and histamine receptor antagonists, both of which have a wide range of underreported adverse health effects.  Below you will find described several dozen natural substances, including water, that have clinically proven therapeutic effects in addressing the condition.
