Gastroesophageal reflux disease for many

reasons, but mainly because of lower esophageal sphincter function impairment

or other reasons occurred on the lower esophageal sphincter causing damage,

whether to eat or drink should have this change. Lower esophageal

sphincter relaxation, stress reduction, the stomach into the esophagus, the

food will rise to reflux; esophageal acid clearance capacity in itself a

problem, esophageal motility problems, may cause reflux; delayed gastric

emptying, normal is 4-5 hours,

such as the occurrence of delayed gastric emptying, the patient will always

feel full, when stomach pressure increases, it can trigger reflux. Things as acid

reflux, pepsin, intestinal bile, pancreatic, esophageal mucosa of these on will

cause varying degrees of damage. 

What are the symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux?

Heartburn and acid

reflux are the most common symptoms of the digestive disease. Which can cause

esophageal inflammation, the esophageal mucosa of patients will be damaged too, the symptoms will produce light mucosal

erosion or edema, or even cause ulcers or bleeding of the digestive tract under

severe cases. A few patients may have Barrett’s esophagus, a condition in which

the tissue lining the esophagus is replaced by tissue that is similar to the

lining of the intestine. Barrett’s esophagus is a precancerous lesion, because

patients with Barrett’s esophagus are 30 to 50 times easier to have esophageal

cancer than other people.

In recent years, gastroesophageal reflux disease is

becoming a very common type of disease, but it is also easy to be confused with

other diseases, for example, ulcer patients also have these symptoms, but their

main symptom is pain, and people who are having chest pain will likely to think

of it as angina. “<!– Place River Of Life Chiropractic And Wellness this tag in your head or just before your close body tag. –>

Home remedies for acid reflux chest pain

1, Avoid irritating

foods and promote secretion of gastric juice 

For the prevention of

acid reflux, patients should avoid eating gastric secretion stimulating foods

such as celery, leek, seaweed, concentrated fruit juice, pepper, mustard, hard

liquor, strawberry,etc., these are all not appropriate for eating. In addition, dessert and sweet potatoes are

also easy to produce acid in the stomach, they should be avoided too.

2, Do not eat raw foods and non-digestible foods

To prevent acid reflux,

patients should avoid eating raw, cold and non-digestible foods, the foods should be soft and easy to digest, to

reduce the burden on the stomach. 

3, Eat small meals, eat

slowly by chewing food thoroughly 

Patient should have a balanced

diet in the right amount, eat less and have more meals to reduce the

stimulation of gastric acid. In addition, patient should develop an eating habit of

chewing food thoroughly. Research suggests that in the process of chewing, our mouth

will produce a lot of saliva, the saliva contains a variety of digestive

enzymes to help digest food and absorb nutrients. 

4, Drink milk, eat biscuits

and other foods 

For those who have stomach pains or burning sensation

at night, drinking some warm milk before bedtime is a good choice. In

addition, Eaing soda crackers and toasted bread slice have certain benefits in

reducing the secretion of gastric acid, which is also great alternatives.

5, Ensure enough intake

of protein and vegetable fat 

Our daily diet should contain

enough nutrients, such as protein and easily digestible vegetable fats.Because proteins can neutralize stomach acid, fat can

stimulate the small intestine mucosa, producing enterogastrone that inhibits gastric

secretion and gastric motility, which is beneficial to prevent acid reflux.
