Heartburn is called heartburn for a good reason.
Millions of people suffer from heartburn and if you are one of them, you can attest that heartburn was aptly named---it burns!
In fact, the pain from common, garden variety heartburn with its accompanying painful burning in the chest area can often trick people into thinking they’re having a heart attack.
But, even though the symptoms of acid reflux and heartburn don’t add up to a heart attack, don’t be lulled into a sense of false security and dismiss your heartburn lightly.
The grim truth is that acid reflux/heartburn can cause all sorts of undesirable ailments:
What Happens With Acid Reflux?
When you have acid reflux or heartburn, your stomach acids erupt back up into your esophagus. The esophagus is a muscular tube that delivers anything you take by mouth down into your stomach. There is an opening at the bottom of this tube called the “Lower sophageal Sphincter” or LES.
Normally, this LES automatically closes tightly once food exits the esophagus and enters the stomach. But with acid reflux, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) and heartburn, this opening fails to close properly, allowing stomach contents and acids to re-enter the esophageal tube.
So, how can you treat and alleviate the symptoms of GERD, acid reflux and heartburn?
The main culprit in this extremely painful condition is diet!
The foods you eat are largely responsible for causing the pain and discomfort associated with heartburn, so you should avoid the foods and beverages that trigger your symptoms.
This often calls for a bit of experimentation, but here are some of the known culprits:
Along with avoiding the foods and drinks that worsen your symptoms, you should definitely work on making your pH balance more alkaline by eating alkaline foods that will counteract acids and lower the acidic contents of your stomach.
Ganoderma is widely believed to be the most alkaline food in the world!
Used for thousands of years to treat a wide variety of ailments and prevent illness and disease, Ganoderma is the magical medicinal mushroom that may establish a healthy alkalinity in your body and thereby greatly lessen or actually eliminate the excruciating pain of acid reflux and heartburn.
Try Ganoderma and start living the pain-free life nature intended---free at last from the burning misery of heartburn!
