Either you’re producing too little stomach acid to break down what you eat or there’s a mechanical problem with the valve in your esophagus.
Ideally, you could address your acid reflux naturally.
The 4 Rs Protocol
- Remove anything in your gut that isn’t helping. You may have yeast, bacterial, viruses or fungi that activate the acid reflux. Anti-microbial supplements may help.
- Restore digestive enzymes. You may not be producing the right enzymes to break down the food you eat.
- Reinoculate the body with probiotics. Healthy bacteria will aid digestion.
- Repair with amino acids and herbs that soothe and heal the gut. Aloe and licorice are some useful tools for the gut.
Your nervous system has two halves: sympathetic and parasympathetic. The sympathetic component kicks you into gear. It is engaged any time you are active. The parasympathetic component works when you are at rest. Its functions include healing, digestion, sleeping and immune system functions. These two halves don’t work together.
You have to give yourself time to digest. Let your body rest between activity to avoid symptoms like acid reflux.
