胃食道逆流.jpg

很多人在一生當中經歷過胃食道逆流或胃灼熱,不知道為什麼會感到灼熱感從胸部到喉嚨這樣上來。醫學界將胃食道逆流歸咎於胃酸與鹽酸進到食道助紂為虐。然而這個理論沒有根據,而且理解有限,我將在以下解釋到。

 

消化系統如此神秘,大部分時間醫生當成病在治療,他們的診斷完全根據理論。事實上,即使理解酵素,同化,消化和吸收如何運作,也都是理論上的。雖然所有這些功能同等存在,所有的研究與科學能做的,猜測這些功能是做什麼的,以及如何在消化過程彼此合作。

沒有人真正了解酵素。沒有人真正了解食物進到胃以後發生了什麼。例如,可能經歷到從腸道一路到脖子與肩膀上方之氣體的疼痛,這可能讓人困惑,因為你可能想知道氣體如何走到身體的那個區域。在消化領域有太多科學與研究尚待發掘的東西,這也是為什麼關於真正治療胃食道逆流,太少的有用訊息可資利用。

什麼是胃食道逆流

胃食道逆流雖然實際上跟酸有關係,但並不是胃的胃酸或鹽酸所引起的。如果你或你認識的某人經常經歷到胃食道逆流,這個酸不是來自細菌,就是肝臟的毒素,甚至小腸道。即使最常見的原因是細菌。醫療界並不知道,這才是造成不舒服背後真正的原因。

 

胃食道逆流有些情況,是腸內有扭結或疝氣。但是,如果原因不明,則直接關連到肝臟弱化,以及細菌滋生。這種細菌會產生一種仿胃酸的酸,愚弄醫生以為是,事實上根本不是胃腺所分泌的酸。

當你有細菌和毒素引起的酸湧上造成胃食道逆流或胃灼熱,代表你的胃其實缺乏鹽酸,那是種好的酸,能真正破壞細菌,反過來也可防止胃酸逆流。也就是說,如果你有不好的酸,代表你沒有足夠好的()酸。

胃食道逆流也與肝臟弱化有關。通常消化不良是因為肝臟負擔過重,無法產生足夠的膽汁,迫使胃過度產生鹽酸來補償。這對兩個器官都產生負擔,導致胃酸逆流。細菌堆積,有時在十二指腸或有時在胃袋底部,沒有足夠的鹽酸沖散掉。胃裡的鹽酸其實是七種不同酸的複合物,還沒被發現。醫學界目前錯誤地認知,鹽酸只是一種酸。如果有人七種酸當中有三種酸的量減少,醫生會無法發現問題,因為在醫學與研究中的真相未知。

治愈胃食道逆流的三大目標

治療胃食道逆流不是吃下一顆神奇的藥丸。就像我在書闡述的其他條件一樣,真正治療胃食道逆流要從改變生活方式著手,才能根本治療。當治療胃食道逆流時,有三個目標:建立起鹽酸(胃酸),剷除不利的細菌,比方鍊球菌,幽門桿菌或大腸桿菌,並加強肝臟。我以下將會介紹到,這些目標可以透過一些飲食來改變。外加一些非常有用的營養輔助補充品,都是打擊細菌最好的東西。 然而,主要的改變來自飲食。

 

避免的食物

要避免的四種食物是麩質,奶,蛋,治療過程,降低或完全不吃動物蛋白會有幫助。麩質,乳製品(牛奶,奶油,起司,優格)。雞蛋是細菌最喜歡的食物來源,如果你還在吃它,對於治好胃食道逆流會比較吃力。如果你相信優格這類奶製品,可以幫助腸道,因為它們的益生菌特質,那麼要了解,它們的其他成分會餵食到所有無益的不同種細菌。

病原體透過進食更有力,如果你從飲食除去麩質,奶,蛋,你就是移走細菌的食物。即使是後院自產最高品質的有機蛋,那個雞蛋仍會餵養你想移除的細菌。不幸的是,太多人與善意的養殖者仍然認為雞蛋是大自然最好的食物。

事實上,它們加速了醫學界尚未察覺的病原體,造成今天那麼多慢性病的來源。要知道更多關於病原體以及如何製造問題的訊息,可以參考我的著作『改變生活的食物以及療癒甲狀腺』。

請不要混淆,並非叫你不吃動物蛋白,但在治療期間少吃動物蛋白是有幫助的,因為它們固有的高脂肪含量。所有的動物肉都含有高脂肪,即使去皮,不油炸。這可能令人驚訝,因為長久以來大家都說,吃雞胸肉去皮或“瘦肉”有助減重,因為它主要是由蛋白質構成的。

但不是這樣的,整塊雞胸肉以及其他瘦肉都是脂肪,即使你處理地很乾淨。少吃動物蛋白,你的肝臟比較有休養生息的機會。每天吃高脂肪、高蛋白,對肝臟而言很累,而且還強迫胃部分泌過多胃酸做補償。這個想法應用到任何你在吃的食物,不只是動物蛋白。

如果你吃素或比較多蔬菜也經歷胃食道逆流,你也會需要少吃堅果,油以及其他高脂肪的食物。無論你吃什麼,降低脂肪會是治療胃食道逆流的關鍵步驟。 我在書中曾討論過攝取脂肪的未知影響,以及肝臟如何運作的過程。

 

吃什麼

療胃食道逆流,專注從水果,馬鈴薯,冬筍中攝取大量健康的碳水化合物。可能專業人員或家人朋友,會告訴你不要吃這些食物,但水果跟馬鈴薯其實是最好的食物。

水果特別是細菌方面的強力打擊者。如果你擔心水果有太多糖,或你不敢吃因為人家說這不好。我無法再更強調這個迷思有多不正確。水果中的含糖跟加工食品的含糖是不一樣的。那是對你健康以及你所愛你家人的健康很重要的。我知道要放掉你的已知是不容易的,但水果所能帶給你的好處與健康,超過你能想像的。歡迎收聽我的廣播節目,你可以了解更多水果的好處,以及它為什麼背負一些惡名。

小黃瓜番茄沙拉胃食道逆流.png

吃很多以黃瓜跟番茄做成的沙拉也很有幫助。番茄其實有其特殊的維他命C,可以拯救免疫系統,在對抗病原體時給予額外的支持。加入菠菜,奶油、萵苣或其他綠色菜葉。再補充豆芽和微型綠豆效果也會很驚人。

丟一些生洋蔥以及生大蒜進去沙拉裡頭,更強化殺菌效果,並儘可能多放進新鮮的百里香,牛至,迷迭香和鼠尾草,更加輔助殺菌。如果你喜歡酪梨,也可以加幾片。

芹菜汁胃食道逆流.jpg

在治療胃食道逆流的療程食譜中,最神奇的食物會是芹菜汁,每天早晨空腹喝一杯16盎司(473cc)的芹菜汁。(不要加任何東西以達最佳效果),有助恢復胃的腺體,分泌七種混合鹽酸的腺體。芹菜汁裡有未被發現的次礦物質,有助於這一過程並確保鹽酸的生成。即使每天早上喝四到八盎司的芹菜汁(240cc),也可以大幅度改善胃食道逆流與胃灼熱。如果你的情況比較嚴重,一天飲用兩次,一次早上,一次下午或晚餐前,都是16盎司(473cc)的芹菜汁。

 

抗菌的

如果你的飲食充滿水果與蔬菜,自然會支持你對抗造成胃食道逆流的細菌。事實上,水果是最神奇的抗菌以及舒緩肝臟的食物。

但我們仍可採取額外措施來來對抗病原體,包括以下的營養輔助食品。北美黃蓮,接骨木茶,貓爪草和牛至油,都有很不錯的抗菌成份,可以固定或不固定加入。你也可以考慮甘草根酊、茶葉和橄欖葉,因為這些草藥對抗細菌,有助於消除細菌的氣體,這是醫學界還不清楚的。

另一個很棒的抗菌成份就是蘆薈,你可以製作蘆薈水,是蘆薈最有效的利用方式,或喝蘆薈汁,或直接生切擠出裡頭的凝膠食用。

此外,考慮在每天的生活中喝藥草茶,像是新鮮的百里香茶,薄荷,接骨木花和檸檬香脂。這些藥草茶都是強力的抗菌成份,不要低估。一如以往,請諮詢你的醫生。

現在你知道胃食道逆流與胃灼熱背後的真相,你可以採取必要的步驟來減輕和治愈這些症狀。如果你今天能夠做一件事來改善你的健康,就慶祝這一小段成功,盼望明天邁向痊癒的另一步。降低脂肪攝取量,儘可能每天早上喝芹菜汁。享受充沛活力的具有力量的水果與美味沙拉。多年來,我以上述方式幫助過很多人,從這些簡單的生活方式、舒緩胃食道逆流與胃灼熱的現象,你也可以從這種情況中獲得緩解。

 

Many people experience acid reflux or heartburn throughout their lives and don’t understand why they feel the burning sensation reach up through their chest and into their throat. Medical communities blame acid reflux on gastric acid and hydrochloric acid backing up into the esophagus. However, this theory of the cause is unfounded and limited in its understanding as I’ll explain in this article.

The digestive system is such a mystery that most of the time when physicians treat patients for illnesses, their practices are based solely on theory. In truth, even the understanding of how enzymes, assimilation, digestion, and absorption work is all just theoretical. While all these functions exist on some level, all research and science can do at the moment is conjecture theory as to what they do and how they cooperate with the digestive process.

Nobody actually understands enzymes. Nobody actually understands what happens when food enters the stomach. For example, it is possible to experience pain from gas in the intestinal tract all the way near the neck and by the top of the shoulders, which can seem baffling because you may wonder how gas can travel to that area of the body (find out more about this in my book Medical Medium where I discuss ammonia permeability.) There is so much left for science and research to discover in the area of digestion, which is one reason there is so little helpful information on understanding and truly healing acid reflux once and for all.

What is Acid Reflux

Acid reflux, while it is in fact related to acids, is not due to gastric acids or hydrochloric acid from the stomach. If you or someone you know is experiencing acid reflux regularly, the acid is either coming from a bacteria or toxins in the liver and even the small intestinal tract, though the most common cause is bacterial. Medical communities have no idea that this is what is really behind this unpleasant condition.

There are cases of acid reflux where there is an actual kink in the intestines or a hernia. However, if the cause is not a visible one, it is directly related to a weakened liver and bacterial growth. This bacteria produces an acid that mimics gastric acid and fools the physician into thinking that is what it is, when in fact it is not a stomach gland-produced acid at all.

When you have bacteria and toxin-based acid coming up and causing acid reflux or heartburn, it means you actually have a lack of hydrochloric acid in your stomach. Hydrochloric acid is the good kind of acid that actually destroys bacteria, which in turn prevents acid reflux. In other words, if you have the bad acids, it means you do not have enough of the good acids.

Acid reflux is also connected to a weakened liver. Typically weak digestion is due to an overburdened liver that cannot produce strong enough bile, which then forces the stomach to overproduce hydrochloric acid to compensate. This is extremely taxing on both of the organs and can then result in acid reflux. Bacteria builds up, sometimes in the duodenum or sometimes in the bottom of the stomach pouch, and there is not enough hydrochloric acid to fight it off. The hydrochloric acid in the stomach is actually a complex blend of seven different acids, which are yet to be discovered. Medical communities currently believe, mistakenly, that hydrochloric acid is just one acid. I shared this in my book Medical Medium. If someone has a diminished amount of three of the seven acids in hydrochloric acid, a doctor or health practitioner will not be able to spot the problem because the truth is unknown in medical science and research.

The Three Goals for Healing Acid Reflux

Healing acid reflux is not about taking a magic pill. Just as with the other conditions I have illuminated in my books, truly healing acid reflux takes a lifestyle shift in order to heal the true root issue. When healing acid reflux, there’s three goals: build up hydrochloric acid, kill off the unproductive bacteria like streptococcus, helicobacter pylori, or e. Coli, and strengthen the liver. As I will discuss below, all three of these things can be achieved with some dietary changes. There are some really helpful supplements to take, as well, that are powerful bacteria-fighters. However, the main shift will come with diet.

Foods to Avoid

The four most important foods to avoid when healing acid reflux are gluten, dairy, and eggs, and it can also be very helpful to lower or eliminate animal protein while you are healing. Gluten, dairy (milk, butter, cheese, cream, yogurt, milk kefir), and eggs are the favorite food source for bacteria and it will be very challenging to heal acid reflux if you are still eating them. If you hold the belief that yogurt or milk kefir heal the digestive tract because of their probiotic nature, it’s important to understand that the rest of what yogurt and milk kefir are made of still feed all unhelpful varieties of bacteria.

Pathogens fuel themselves by eating, and if you remove gluten, dairy, and eggs from your own diet, you are removing the bacteria’s food and preventing it from festering. Even if you get the highest quality organic, free-range egg from a backyard hen, that egg will still feed the bacteria you are trying to fight off. It is unfortunate that so many people and well-intentioned practitioners still consider eggs as nature’s perfect food. They are in truth fueling the pathogens that medical communities are unaware are behind so much of chronic illness today. To find out more about pathogens and how they create problems, you can refer to my books Life-Changing Foods and Thyroid Healing.

Please don’t be confused, this is not a biased attack on eating animal protein, but it’s helpful to lower the amount of animal proteins you consume while healing because of their inherently high fat content. All animal meats are high in fat, even if it has no skin and is not fried. This may be surprising because you might have been told for so long that eating chicken breast without the skin or “lean” cuts of meat will help you lose weight due to it being made mostly of protein.

However, that is simply not true. Fat is all throughout the chicken breast and other “lean” meats, even if you make it in the cleanest way possible. By lowering your fat content through reducing your animal protein, you will give your liver the break it deserves. Having to process a high-fat and high-protein diet all day is incredibly exhausting for the liver and forces the stomach to overproduce hydrochloric acid to compensate. This applies to any diet you follow and foods you consume, not just animal protein.

If you’re eating a vegetarian or plant-based diet and are experiencing acid reflux, you’ll also want to lower your fat intake by reducing the amount of nuts, oils, and other high fat foods that you consume. Lowering your fat, no matter what diet you’re on, is an essential step when wanting to heal acid reflux. I discuss the true unknown impact of our fat intake on our health and how the liver operates and responds in my book Liver Rescue.

What to Eat

When healing from acid reflux, focus on eating plenty of healthy carbohydrates from fruit, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and winter squashes. You may have been told by professionals or family members or friends to avoid these foods, but fruits and potatoes are actually amazing disease fighters.

Fruit is especially powerful in knocking down bacteria. If you’re concerned that fruit has too much sugar or you’re scared to eat it because you’ve been told it’s not good for you, I can’t stress enough how incorrect this myth is. Fruit sugar is not the same as processed sugars. It’s critical for your health and the health of your loved ones that you understand this. I know it can be hard to let go of what you may have been told before, but fruit has more to offer you and your health than you can possibly imagine. To find out more about why fruit is so critical and why fruit has been given such a bad rap, you can listen to my Fruit Fear radio show and read the Fruit Fear chapter in my book Medical Medium.

It’s also helpful to consume plenty of salads with cucumbers and tomatoes. Tomatoes actually have their own special kind of vitamin C that can save someone’s immune system and give them extra support when fighting pathogens. Add spinach, mache, butter lettuce, or another leafy green of choice. Sprouts and microgreens are an especially amazing addition.

Throw some raw onion and raw garlic into your salads for powerful bacterial-killers, and bring in as much fresh thyme, oregano, rosemary, and sage as you can for their incredible assistance in healing bacterial issues. If you enjoy avocado, you can add some slices of that too. You can read about the undiscovered physical, spiritual, and emotional healing benefits of each of this powerhouse foods in Life-Changing Foods, which also includes 50 wonderful healing recipes.

The most miraculous food to include when fighting acid reflux is celery juice, which you can learn more about and get the recipe for in Thyroid Healing. Drinking a 16oz glass of straight celery juice (don’t add anything else to it for best results) every morning on an empty stomach restores the glands in the stomach that produce the seven-blend hydrochloric acid. There are undiscovered subgroups of mineral salts in celery juice that contribute to this process and ensure the hydrochloric acid is produced. Even drinking four to eight ounces of celery juice every morning can do wonders in healing acid reflux and heartburn. If you are experiencing bad acid reflux, you can even do two 16oz glasses of straight celery juice a day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon or before dinner.

Antibacterials

Eating a diet full of fruits and vegetables will naturally support you in your fight against the bacteria causing acid reflux. In truth, fruit is the most amazing antibacterial and liver healing food available to us.

However, there are additional things we can do to fight the pathogen, such as including the following supplements. Goldenseal, elderberry tea, cat’s claw, and oregano oil are all incredible antibacterials that can be included on a regular or semi-regular basis. You can also consider licorice root tincture or tea and olive leaf because these herbs fight bacteria and help eliminate the gas that the bacteria produces that medical communities are unaware of.

Another wonderful antibacterial is aloe vera. You can make aloe vera water, which is the most powerful way to have aloe, or drink aloe vera juice, or you can even cut open an aloe vera leaf, scoop out the gel and eat that directly.

Additionally, considering adding herbal teas like fresh thyme tea, peppermint, elderflower, and lemon balm to your daily regimen. These herbal teas are powerful antibacterials and should not be underestimated. As always, please consult your practitioner before beginning a supplement protocol to discuss dosages. And when finding the right supplement, please visit my supplement directory. I have spent many hours bringing these together on one page. These are the exact supplements I personally trust. Not all supplements are created with the same integrity and there are many supplement companies out there that do not provide their consumers with the high quality products they promise.

Moving Forward

 

Now that you know the truth about what’s behind acid reflux and heartburn, you can take the steps needed to reduce and heal these conditions. If you are able to do one thing to improve your health today, celebrate that success and look forward to tomorrow when you can take another step toward healing. Focus on lowering your fat intake and drink celery juice every morning as you can. Enjoy plenty of vibrant, healing fruits and delicious salads. I have helped so many people over the years heal from acid reflux and heartburn from these simple lifestyle changes, and you too can experience healing and relief from this condition.
