Heartburn (or acid reflux) does not have to destroy the quality of your life or force you to take anti-acid tablets every day. You can eat what you want without any pain and discomfort. This is how I did it with 100 per cent success.
My best friend suffered from heartburn (acid reflux) all his life; all I can do, when I think of him, is remember all the anti-acid pills he takes before, during and after his meals. He tried a plethora of diet changes but the difference was minimal and his acid reflux continued, every day, to varying degrees.
It’s when I noticed it in me for the first time that I truly took charge and decided that there should be a better way to deal with this discomfort (or even pain, as it was in my case) than popping pills constantly.
My symptoms were sudden and severe, making everything so painful and uncomfortable; I would try every posture possible in order to hopefully find one which would render my esophageal pain less unbearable. One night the pain was so severe that I thought it might be a heart attack!
I studied a number of recommended diet changes but varying results; whilst it is true that certain unhealthy foods undoubtedly worsen acid reflux, and definitely so in my case and in my best friend’s case, I was looking for as solution which would allow me to resume life without acid reflux, its discomfort and its pain.
So, I looked for a natural but powerful remedy. In my case, what worked wonders was the homeopathic remedy Pulsatilla. For some other people, if their acid reflux is strictly related to eating ‘binges’, the homeopathic remedy Nux Vomica may be better indicated (I’ll talk about this one in the coming weeks; for a quick answer, just contact us).
Before talking about Pulsatilla and how it can help your against acid reflux or even GERD (as well as Nux Vomica), I want to stress the following point, which I believe it can save your life:
Heartburn Acid Reflux GERD Natural Remedies were essential for me. However, first of all, if you suffer from heartburn or acid reflux (let alone GERD!) for longer than 4 weeks, and you have frequent symptoms (daily), I think that you, absolutely and without question, need to have an endoscopy of the esophagus and stomach. If your doctor is rushing to prescribe you medicines, absolutely, without question insist that you have an endoscopy done to you. It’s a simple, very short ‘procedure’, which I myself undertook whilst completely awake and even without an IV (the only thing I was given was a throat spray to numb my throat): it can save your life and go to the root of the problem. Why did I insist that I have an endoscopy? Because I suddenly developed severe symptoms, heartburn, nausea, the sensation of a lump in my esophagus, some minor regurgitation. I just though I suffered from acid reflux as my friend does and indeed my doctor rushed to prescribed me anti acids and other medicines, which only mildly helped at first but, in the long run, made things worse. I was lucky: I was watching a Dr Oz program completely by chance one day and he was talking about endoscopies: it gave me the idea, I went back to my doctor and I insisted on having an endoscopy performed on me (my doctor had already rushed to diagnose GERD, by the way, and of course he prescribed several ‘drugs’).
The short version of the ‘end’ of the story is this: the endoscopy, which lasted 2 minutes only, revealed that I had an eroded stomach lining due to a severe bacterial infection inside my stomach. This required specific types of antibiotics (2 types, in strong doses), which I took for 6 weeks, twice a day, together with a ‘natural’ anti-acid (the tablets contained only natural ingredients) which I had to take 30 minutes before eating: the result: I am completely cured. Completely. So, do not accept that you are suffering from GERD or acid reflux and leave it at that: have an endoscopy to find out what’s really going on inside your stomach. If you are lucky and you are only suffering from acid reflux, then the following natural treatment is indicated.
Pulsatilla (as part of Heartburn Acid Reflux GERD Natural Remedies) is highly indicated for indigestion and related problems in individuals who also either present at least some of the following symptoms or have had tendency (during their lives) to suffer from (some) the following:
1 – mood swings and mild depression
2 – tendency to be tearful
3 – stress, nausea, some unexplained morning sickness
4 – tendency to nose bleeds (even if only in the past), varicose veins, acne (even if during adolescence only) toothache or sensitive teeth, sinus congestion of some form
5 – emotional person
6 – osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis
7 – exhaustion
8 – tendency to either eye or ear infections (mostly viral but not necessarily); significantly, I treated my own (very bad) ear infection recently with Pulsatilla, bearing in mind that I do present some of the above-listed symptoms (in my case they were emotional, moodiness and tendency to be tearful, rheumatoid arthritis, esophageal pain/indigestion and occasional nausea).
In women, also:
-incontinence, even if mild
