Thistle: The Heartburn Fighter. It reduces bouts of heartburn and acid reflux.
Unlike antacids that reduce much needed acid in your stomach, milk thistle balances stomach acidity, thanks to a powerful flavonoid called "SILLYMARIN".
Used extensively in South Asian cuisines for its characteristic aroma, it is also believe to relieve ungovernable emotional excess.
Research has shown that deglycyrrhizinated licorice supports and promotes a healthy stomach lining and intestinal flora.
Ginger helps demolish the bad bacteria in your gut that can cause so many digestive issues. Whenever possible it should be part of your prepared meals.
Based on my experience as a longtime sufferer of pain from heartburn, the very many sleepless nights I had to endure, and the loss of many hours of productivity due to being immobile while in pain, I will now share to you the steps and procedures that I have undertook to once and for all rid myself of this destructible malaise that has prevented me from enjoying even the simplest pleasures in life.

Himalayan Black Salt: It is used in Ayurveda as medicine to relieve flatulence and heartburn.
The Root of the Ginger plant is well known as a force in its ability to help digestion problems.
Surgery was not an option.
What started several years ago as gas and bloating turned into a never ending fight against a progressively worsening case of acid reflux. Medical intervention did not work and I did not want to undergo surgery. I opted instead for a method of holistic healing.
A total waste of money.
Medical Doctor recommended dietary supplements such as total restore, supposedly a specialized blend of powerful ingredients designed to promote a healthy gut lining did nothing for me. Three months’ supply of "Total Restore" was just another waste of money!
It feels like a heart attack.
The Pain of Heartburn
Healing Heartburn Holistically
It is my belief that before we can precede as to what is wrong with our digestive system we must understand how our stomach functions.
Whenever we eat something, food ends up in the stomach and then gets digested so that our bodies can begin to absorb its nutrients as it travels throughout our small and large intestines.
Digestion begins with our saliva and chewing food properly. Once we swallow the food it ends up in our stomach where it is further digested through the means of gastric acid, a digestive fluid formed in the stomach membrane. It is composed of hydrochloric acid, potassium chloride, and sodium chloride.
Key to our stomach digestive system is the inlet and outlet valves. These two valves are the Cardiac Sphincter valve which is for the inlet and the Pyloric Sphincter valve for the outlet.
I have written a short E-book as to further explain its relationship to gas buildup and heartburn. You can acquire this important information as to how I fought my bouts of heartburn without surgery or the damaging long term use of medications. Instruction on accessing it is at the bottom of this web page.
With this E-book I will explain how I was able to know if it was my lower sphincter was the source of the problem, and how I allowed my stomach which might also have included ulcer to heal and minimize my heartburn bouts to eventually become negligible.
Bottom line is no amount of surgery such as tightening the upper sphincter is going to cure you of heartburn if your stomach is bubbling with gas and it feels as though it is ready to explode. The enormous amount of pressure inside your stomach from the buildup of gas if allowed to go on, will force this Cardiac Sphincter valve to open and spill acid up the esophagus. The more often this happens the more it damages the esophagus lining which could eventually lead to throat cancer.
Taking prolonged use of anti-acid medication can also give you side effects such as weakening your bones, kidney problems, and diarrhea.
Licorice: Coats tiny rips and tears in your digestive tract so that nutrients can be absorbed more.
Herbs, Fruits, Salt & Spices That Heal Heartburn Holistically
Why is Peppermint a Gas and Bloating Fighter? Peppermint helps your liver produce more bile contributing to better digestion of foods we eat.
When bile is not produce in sufficient amount, foods especially fats do not get fully digested. This food then just unnecessarily clumps and festers foul reactions in your stomach due to not being fully digested triggering gas that cause bloating and other symptoms of heartburn.
Manuka honey is produced by bees that pollinate flowers from the Manuka bush.
This type of honey which is native to New Zealand has antibacterial properties that set it apart from traditional honey. Additionally Manuka honey has antiviral, anti-inflammatory plus antioxidant benefit.
Antioxidants fight the free radicals that damage the cell in our body.
Used for treating wounds, sore throats, and as tooth decay prevention, it also has traditionally been used to improve digestive issues. Pylori are a common type of bacteria that is responsible for the majority of gastric ulcers. Manuka honey may be able to treat these types of sores that form on the lining of the stomach causing stomach pain, nausea and bloating.
Manuka honey may also decrease inflammation in individuals with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. This honey is a gut infection fighter.

Turmeric or its constituent, Curcumin is commonly used for conditions involving pain and inflammation. This plant has a very long history of medical use that dates back to several thousand years.
In the system of holistic medicine of "Ayurveda" which use various plants based drugs or formulations, natural plant base drugs in biochemical terms, are more suitable for human use. Modern medicine has just begun to recognize the importance of Turmeric.
A cousin to the ginger it is suitable for use on digestive disorders such as for relieving gas, bloating and abdominal pain.
Holistically, Turmeric improves digestion by stimulating bile production in the liver and encouraging excretion of bile via the gallbladder, which in turn improves the body's ability to digest fats.
Fennel is beneficial in reducing digestive cramping, gas, bloating.
It is one of the most effective digestive aids in treating heartburn and GERD. Fennel does this by calming the digestive system.
This soothing effect on the muscles in the stomach and intestines helps relieve gassiness that causes acid reflux.
Anethole, a flavonoid is an organic compound found in Fennel that also possesses antimicrobial properties to fight against bacteria. This flavonoid has been shown to suppress inflammation.
Caraway has historically been used to treat digestive problems.
Studies show that caraway oil relaxes the digestive tract's muscle tissue to relieve indigestion symptoms such as stomach ulcers, gas, cramping and bloating.
Aside from having food value, caraway also kills bacteria in the body and relieves constipation. Women also use caraway to relieve menstrual cramps while others use it to improve control of urination.
Caraway remains one of the oldest herbs and medicinal plants still in use in Europe. Back then, people have consumed caraway as a digestive aid after a big feast to prevent bloating and other digestive issues.
Until now German's believe that dishes are easier on the stomach when accompanied by caraway.
The leaf and root of the marshmallow is used for fighting inflammation (pain and swelling) of the mucous membranes that line the respiratory tract.
Marshmallow is also used concerning inflammation of the lining of the stomach, diarrhea, stomach ulcers, constipation, urinary tract inflammation and others.
The root of the Marshmallow heals wounds and protects against ulcers, plus it protects the throat from gastric reflux, relieve irritation and also dry cough.
Though considered safe for most people marshmallow can lower blood sugar levels, so check with your doctor if you have diabetes and wait at least an hour after taking medication to consume marshmallow.
Potassium helps the body to flush out extra sodium in the urine, and it eases tension in the walls of our blood vessels; and bananas are rich in potassium.
But that is not the reason why I am including bananas here as part of the holistic treatment for heartburn and other digestive issues.
As part of my E-book, I explain why and how bananas when utilized properly play a major role in helping you achieve freedom from heartburn and other digestive problems.
Bananas are an important facet of my E-book that plays a significant role helping you reach your objective of being heartburn free. It worked for me. Find out and you won't regret it.
