Acid Reflux Diet: Secret Acid Reflux Dietary Principles

Jul 15, 2008
Lifestyle changes are often the first step in improving your health. Introducing a special acid reflux diet can be the first step for treating acid reflux. Many researchers rightly claim that particular dietary changes can be beneficial in the prevention of various health conditions and chronic diseases, acid reflux being one of them. Adhering to a complete acid reflux diet can stop symptoms immediately and work to reverse damage. Many studies of the complex nature of the body's internal balance have been undertaken which investigate dietary patterns and their association with overall health.

Acid reflux symptoms were the goal of much early research. These studies focused on the diet and its relation to the severity of acid reflux symptoms. It was found that acid reflux sufferers should avoid certain specific nutrients. More recently, studies are leaning toward a broader dietary alteration to be used as the first therapeutic tool used in treating acid reflux sufferers.

An individual's diet approach is the philosophy of contemporary holistic. Attempting to capture complex behaviors, potentially interactive and antagonistic effects among dietary components that may trigger acid reflux is a goal of holistic medicine. By applying several basic non-restrictive dietary principles acid reflux symptoms can be reduced significantly. Both physicians and alternative therapists claim that this is the case.

It is common knowledge that fatty foods can increase acid reflux. Reducing a patient's fatty food intake can help almost immediately, as has been found by many health care professionals treating patients with acid reflux. Aggravation of acid reflux symptoms is made worse by saturated fat and high cholesterol foods. Consumption of excessive amounts of fatty foods is related to the loss of strength in the lower esophageal sphincter muscle (LES), the muscle that helps prevent acid reflux.

The intake of a large amount of fiber has been linked to the reduction of acid reflux symptoms. According to several studies, abnormal gastrointestinal effects were lessened as a result of a high fiber-diet over a one year period. Because of this, many health care professionals recommend 25 to 40 grams of dietary fiber per day. These should be taken from sources such as whole grains, rather than starchy foods - potatoes, pasta, etc. - that do not provide the right kind of fiber. Foods that contain plenty of the correct type of fiber help to eliminate both food and toxins from the gastrointestinal system. This increase in useful fiber results in softer stools, increased bulk, and a shorter time through the digestive tract - all of which are signs of significantly better health, and a reduction in acid reflux.

Adhering to these dietary practices is the beginning of an effective diet to prevent acid reflux. Using a comprehensive holistic approach, the goal is to address and tackle the internal factors that cause acid reflux disease.

By using a holistic, all-natural strategy, your painful and distressing acid reflux symptoms could be healed on a permanent basis.

A powerful, safe, and effective long-term holistic system that can prevent and stop acid reflux permanently is yours to discover.
