Beat The Burn!

Beat The Burn!

More than 20 million Americans each year seek digestive relief from over the counter heartburn medicines, also known as Proton Pump Inhibitors. For years, an increasing number of studies have uncovered negative side effects from long-term use of PPI’s- from increasing food allergies and fracture’s to dementia. Recently, a Stanford study funded by NIH has uncovered a link between long-term PPI use (such as Prilosec) and heart attacks. The study underscores the need for caution and concern regarding OTC heartburn relief drugs. Fortunately there may be all-natural options available for many of these individuals experiencing occasional heartburn or indigestion.

Be Belly Smart. Be gentle to your digestive system, as it may not react well to certain foods. Hold the sriracha, put down the fried foods and make an effort to add healthy alternatives into your diet. Tomatoes and acidic foods are the worst, as well as alcohol, caffeine, and tobacco.

Heartburn Buster. Occasional heartburn and acid discomfort after a meal are often symptoms of impaired digestion resulting from a variety of factors including lifestyle and diet. Reach for a natural dietary supplement like an enzyme, papaya lead and other botanicals.

Chew Well. The enzymes in your mouth and the grinding action present the stomach with a pre-digested mush rather than large chunks of undigested food.

Know When to Say When. Even though your grill may be overflowing with foods for your summer BBQ, be careful how much you overindulge. Your stomach will thank you.

Get Up and Move. While sometimes it is tempting to take a nap or lie down after eating, it is important to stay active. A healthy body is one that gets plenty of exercise and sleep.

Digestive issues are extremely common, and through these simple tips, natural solutions may provide you with relief you’ve been looking for.
