Research: Drug Free Acid Reflux Relief

Here is what researchers tested to find what works best as acid reflux cure:

  • The main cause of acid reflux, is due to the muscle, or sphincter at the top of the stomach being stretched, or "relaxed," so that it does not close properly.

This "relaxation" allows stomach acid to get into the esophagus.

The problem is that the lining of the stomach can handle the acid just fine.  But the lining of the esophagus was not designed to withstand stomach acid. Therefore this acid will "burn" and damage the esophagus lining. This causes constant inflammation and heartburn.

  • The stretching of the upper stomach during meals is considered the main cause for the "relaxing" of this muscle (sphincter) to the esophagus.  
  • This "relaxation" and inflammation is made worse by eating between meals because there is no break for healing. 

So, researchers decided to test whether cutting out eating between meals would actually help for acid reflux relief without medications

Here are the studies that may be of inspiration: 

Researchers Test Acid Reflux Remedies

Best meals for Acid Reflux cure

Researchers asked a group of 20 people to eat only two meals a day. In between, they agreed to only drink liquids such as juices, water, coffee or tea.  They also agreed not to take any acid reflux medications during that time. 

These people were all clinically shown to have GERD, with endoscopy testing.

  • After 2 weeks of following this diet, 75% of the group no longer had any acid reflux symptoms, and another 10% had their symptoms improved. For 3% of the group there was no change. 2

You be the judge, whether a 2 week effort to follow this pilot study, is worth being able to quit Nexium, Prevacid or Prilosec toward your acid reflux cure.

Why does this diet work?

It can work for you too, because repeated refluxes cause inflammation. If you keep on eating, this inflammation does not get a chance to heal. 

  • Drinking only liquids between two meals per day will give you not only acid reflux relief, but will also will give the inflammation a chance to heal.
  • By trying this you may be on the way to a longer term acid reflux cure!

Here's dangerous nexium side effects which may help you decide:

Dangerous Side Effects of Nexium Prevacid Prilosec 

dangerous side effects of PPI's Nexium Prevacid Prilosec for stomach acid reflux

The class of Nexium medication is called proton pump inhibitors, or PPI's. 

The risks and long term side effects of Nexium list has been growing. Here is what is on the list:

  • dementia
  • high blood pressure
  • kidney disease
  • gastroenteritis
  • deficiency of magnesium and vitamin B 12
  • osteoporosis and fractures
  • respiratory tract infections including pneumonia

Researchers have in fact determined that these PPI medications cause an increase in the blood, of ADMA, which in turn decreases nitric oxide levels.

  • This causes blood vessels to constrict, and results in high blood pressure. High blood pressure is the highest risk factor for a heart attack or a stroke.

Again, you ask yourself if it is worth a 2 week experiment to get drug-free acid reflux relief!

Hopefully, this research will give you the inspiration for trying simple acid reflux home remedies instead of side effects of Nexium, Prevacid or Prilosec.

Note: Nexium is the second most profitable drug ever sold in the world, making $6.3 billion per year. So expect their promo and advertising to paint a rosy picture! They are not going to encourage you to stop, and the law suits on kidney failure etc are easily paid for with that kind of profit. 

  • Yes, trying natural acid reflux remedies will take some effort, and you will likely have to change a habit or two.

Please review the side effects of Nexium, so that you can be assured that you will be healthier and happier without it, in the long run.
