Acid Reflux Treatment
If you are reading this it is because of one or two reasons: You either have acid reflux diease or you think you have acid reflux disease. Essentially, there are two separate paths to treating this debilitating health condition.
You can use medications, which consist of prescriptions drugs, over-the-counter treatments and antacids. Or you can consider an all-natural approach which utilizes dietary and life style changes. Either method you choose will have it pluses and minuses.
The positives characteristics of using the drugs to treat acid reflux, heartburn and GERD are that you will receive immediate relief from the pain. The negatives are they are not a cure and unless you make dietary changes you will need to continue to use them, maybe permanently.
The natural treatment for acid reflux will require you to make slight changes in your diet to foods that do not cause your stomach to generate excess stomach acid that can not be absorbed by the foods you are presently consuming. This of course will take determination on your part and knowledge of the food items that cause acid reflux and the food items that provide relief.
Dietary Changes - As part of your acid reflux treatment, your doctor will most likely suggest one or more lifestyle changes first, before considering any medications.
For those patients that have maintained the slight changes in there diet suggested in this treatment program they have been able to live a pain free life for as long as they have continued only eating the correct foods that do not generate excess stomach acid.
