Heartburn is an uncomfortable burning sensation in the chest which can often creep up the throat. When the Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES) allows acid from your stomach to go back up your esophagus, this strong burning sensation of heartburn can occur. It’s actually possible to have reflux without heartburn, but it is not possible to have heartburn without reflux.
The stomach holds a certain alkalinity and uses acids to digest foods and maintain our wellbeing. For the meat eaters that do not emit the enzymes to digest meat, HCL is a great supplement to take when eating a big burger or steak. HCL is one of the acids the body secretes to digest red meat and not all of us produce enough.
The acid in the stomach that is most commonly known by fitness enthusiasts as Lactic Acid, from over exerting during a working out. People know it as the puke index, where there so much acid built up from an intense workout that the body can not buffer (alkaline) quick enough. We all know what happens next.
So now you know more about some of the acids in the stomach, and must be reading this because you or your loved one has distinct heartburn. So can we combat this heartburn naturally?
A lot of the solution is determined by making better choices in purchasing food that is not Genetically Modified (GMO). If it does not say Non-GMO, don’t buy it. Right off the bat, your body will not recognize modified food, causing digestion challenges. Humans are the only mammals that have changed their intake since the beginning of time. All other mammals would be extinct if they were to change their intake. Does a polar bear at eucalyptus leaves as its primary food? No it eats seals! If it were to change, it would be come sick, die and ultimately extinct the entire breed. So why do humans with our intelligence, feel it is Ok to eat Modified foods? Why do we feel it is Ok to cover our foods with pesticides and eat them?
My Father grew up on a farm in Iowa. He had over 1,000 acres of corn fields. They never modified their corn seeds nor used pesticides to kill weeds or bugs, they simply pulled weeds on their own. And let the bird and ecosystem do the rest. They did not have access to pesticides at that time?
The pesticide companies started making a push in the late 1940’s, first with arsenic, then DDT. This is just a pure play to make money selling chemicals, with zero regard for the health of our population. Glyphosate (Round Up) is a broad spectrum, systemic (they dip the seeds in it) herbicide that they have got around the FDA for years, as they are not ‘spraying the crops’. Dipping the seed makes it systemic in the plant with the roots taking in the poison. The rest of it gets washed away and making a sizable dent in bee and iconic Monarch Butterfly population.
As science continued to get more advanced, the major food companies sought to find ways to genetically modify foods, seed all in the name of profit. So your first line of defense against Heartburn and IBS is to purchase food that is not modified. Next would be to buy organic when possible.
