How Alkaline Water Can Help Acid Re-flux Disease
Alkaline Water: How It Can Help Acid Re-flux Disease
Acid Re-flux is preventable. If you get a little education on the way a body works, you begin to realize that many of today’s chronic illnesses are preventable. Unfortunately, doctors are not trained to think that way. It’s rather hard to grasp, most often, that doctors are essentially trained to medicate any patient who walks in the door. If they choose surgery as a specialty, they are naturally trained to cut into the body to make repairs.
In my experience, a doctor who understands that there are causes to health problems and who will actually take the time to educate a patient on the lifestyle changes needed to get healthier has obtained this education independently of a medical school. To bring about real health in this country, it will take re-educating people on the way to lasting, honest health.
What is Acid Re-flux Disease?
Re-flux means that something that should be flowing downward is instead moving in reverse. In the case of Acid Re-Flux, stomach acids are escaping from the stomach, which is built to deal with them, up into the lower esophagus, which is NOT built to deal with them. The problem centers around the condition of a sphincter valve at the bottom of the esophagus. When it is weak, it permits stomach acids to escape upward. The symptoms of this problem include heartburn, sour acid backing up into the mouth, bloating, hiccups, nausea. Those are just the mild symptoms. More serious ones include bloody vomiting.
Doctors treat Acid Re-flux Disease with drugs that shut off the stomach acid pumps in the stomach. For example, Prilosec and Nexium may be prescribed. Well, there’s no way that any drug only affects one isolated body function. These drugs have been associated with bacterial infections, pneumonia, damage to kidneys and liver and stomach cancer.
The Role of Alkaline Water in Finding Relief and Healing
Among the health & benefits of alkaline ionized water, is it role in helping to prevent or alleviate acid-reflux. A body that is completely healthy and in balance will not develop this condition but many of us came to realize the right way to eat and how to avoid toxic exposures late in life. We may suffer the effects of those early years when we were not so wise. We may also want to help other people who may not be able to implement broad lifestyle changes. Alkaline ionized water is very helpful in improving this condition. It’s not just me, the National Institutes of Health say so too.
You can read more about how alkaline water can help both digestion and acid re-flux on my digestion-education page.
In brief, alkaline water balances the pH of the intestines to the right level to keep down the growth of organisms you don’t want, like parasites and fungi. You might be interested to know that stomach acid itself does not do much to break down your food for absorption. Instead, stomach acid creates the ideal pH-environment for enzymes to do that work. It takes only about 20 minutes to do this job, so unless you're eating a meal there is no concern about alkaline ionized water having anything but a positive effect on digestion.
My digestion-educational page provides an excellent education for anyone who is being told he needs one of the stomach acid blockers. Adding more toxins to a system that is already not working right can lead to disaster. It may not be obvious and it may take years to show up. A much better idea is the use of alkaline ionized water to help balance the body and provide the time for healing of the esophagus. If you have any questions after reading my information and watching my videos, please send me a message and I will help you.
My background is in physiology, teaching, nutrition and weight loss. I have raised 5 children who are all grown now. I have a masters degree in education and was a teacher/principal for 24 years. I created Alkaline Water Plus in 2009 to educate people about the benefits of ionized water.
The very best thing I have ever purchased is a WATER IONIZER, and I've been in perfect health ever since I started drinking ionized water 25 years ago!
