Once you have checked with your doctor and have been cleared from all serious conditions, ask him/her about how to correct the situation without medications.
The following ideas have benefited many in reversing these symptoms.
~ When you feel the symptoms of acid reflux, mix 1 tsp Red Desert Clay (using a
wooden spoon or chopstick) in a small glass of warm water and drink, or swallow 6
In mild to moderate situations, this very specific clay will usually neutralize acids and calm the
digestion down within about 5 to 10 minutes. It will also go into the bloodstream,
remove toxins and deliver minerals to the cells, increasing alkalinity to the overall

~ HCL and
taken at the “beginning” of each meal will help break
down protein, carbohydrates and fats and prevent harmful bacteria from flourishing.
This is very important for proper digestion, avoiding leaking gut and to assimilate the
vitamins and minerals the body needs.
~ Medications – proton pump inhibitors – What do they do? These stop the stomach
from naturally producing the much needed HCL (hydrochloric acid) and the necessary
enzymes to break down food. Without proper digestion, vitamins and minerals are not
readily available for absorption, resulting in vitamin and minerals deficiencies.
Solutions ~ Yes, you do not have to live with this
It is not necessary that you follow everything below. Just read and see if anything resonates with you and feels doable. Just start there and make changes as you can.
We are not born with acid reflux. These are symptoms that come about as a result of
a combination of things; but the majority of these can be reversed in a reasonable
period of time with a little knowledge and information.
We do not have to be perfect and give up all the foods we love but you may want to
know some of the foods eaten in excess that trigger the acid reflux symptoms.
Coffee, sodas, sugar, excess meat, chicken, fish, fast foods, prepackaged
processed items - starchy, and/or microwaved food substances etc. These are
all on the extra acidic scale. Less of these items – replaced with more of the
green drinks and organic produce items along with some fruits are going to
reduce the overall acid and create a more alkaline environment in the body.
Detoxification – Toxins (chemicals, heavy metals and other pathogens) are
acidic and stored in the fat cells of the body.
Red Desert Clay and zetox
will remove many of these.
Helpful - Potent green drink - very high in nutrients, super easy for the body
to absorb and assimilate and easy to make. This is a great replacement for
some of the acidic foods. I daily use
Nutrex spirulina, Pure Synergy
Fresh Frozen algae
– since they are among the most alkalizing foods on the planet. I
put one TBSP of Nutrix spriulina, one TBSP of Pure Synergy and 2 TBSP of fresh
frozen algae in a cup of water sometimes adding a little cinnamon for flavor,
blend for 5 seconds and drink.
Minerals in their natural form are the building blocks of our cells. Minerals are
alkaline. We have trillions of cells in our body making up every tissue from bones to
organs. If the cells are nourished with high quality alkaline vitamins and minerals
then excess acid leaves the body and we start feeling better.
, Red Desert clay,
are all excellent for adding in additional vitamins and minerals.
Celtic salt is the only salt I use. It contains 84 essential naturally occurring minerals and is the GOOD SALT. You can add this to food or put crystals on your tongue, but do not add it to food that is cooking, as heat destroys minerals.
We sometimes take a tsp of this salt and add to 8oz of
water, stir and drink. The 84 essential minerals contained are rapidly absorbed
into the bloodstream. Celtic salt can easily be found at health food stores.
By the time we are 30, most of us have depleted the
we were born with and by around 38 we are producing little HCL (hydrchloric acid)
when we eat. For those individuals who have been true vegetarians all of their
lives, digestive enzymes and HCL do not generally become depleted as compared
to those of us who have been eating an animal based diet.
Note: At age 32, I was tested and found to be producing 1% HCL. This happened
because in my teen years I went through an anorexia/bulimia phase, which stopped my
stomach from producing HCL. When I got over myself back then, my stomach never
went back to producing any hydrochloric acid; therefore my stomach did not properly digest food. I did not
know this, so as the years went on the lack of digestive enzymes and HCL contributed
to a major decline in my physical health, as I was not assimilating or absorbing
Bulimia / Anorexia - Those who have eating disorders (which was me 35 years
ago) will often find they have created a situation which disrupts the stomachs
natural production of hydrochloric acid. Even when the crisis is over, the stomach
does not automatically begin to produce hydrochloric acid on its own and Betaine
HCl is often recommended by a holistic practitioners - taken with every meal. I 've
been there so I know this can be turned around.
Herbs prescribed by a good Chinese Herbalist can often unclog a digestive tract that is sluggish and then of course adding fibrous foods once things are moving smoothly again will be advantageous.
Many people find the simplest solution for constipation or sluggish bowels is to take
The body cannot store magnesium and yet is necessary for more than 300 bodily functions. Magnesium can be taken more than once a day. Many believe that magnesium is more important than calcium because without it calcium cannot be broken down and therefore does not move into to the bones.
The above will help point you in a direction toward feeling better. So start where you are and just do what feels right for you !
