According to Ayurveda, acid reflux is caused due to improper functioning of the sub – category of Pitta dosha called Pachaka. The Pachaka pitta is situated in the duodenum and the intestines. Modern science also points towards the stomach as the cause of acid reflux. Acid reflux is caused when the lower esophageal sphincter fails to function properly. The lower esophageal sphincter is a one-way valve, which shuts tightly after allowing the food into the stomach. Thus it prevents the acidic content from slipping back into the esophagus. When it stops functioning properly, the acidic stomach content come in contact with the lining of the esophagus causing irritation. The irritation is termed as acid reflux. You are not alone in your search for an acid reflux home treatment. Thousands of people are taking GERD into their own hands after little to no luck with antacids. Have you noticed your antacids not working as well? Have you noticed your acid reflux getting worse? Have you ever wondered if it is possible to fully cure acid reflux? In this article, you will learn the importance of one of the simplest and most effective remedies… honey! Why an Acid Reflux Home Treatment can Work Do you know what the cause of your GERD is? Most people are unaware that a lower esophageal sphincter is the tissue to blame for your disease. Most gastro esophageal reflux diseases stem from a damaged or weak sphincter. The lower esophageal sphincter (LES) is the muscle flap that is right above the stomach. The LES is responsible for keeping foods and acids in your stomach where they belong. However, our diets have become more processed and more acidic than nature ever intended and the LES has paid for it. Fortunately, there are ways to strengthen and heal the sphincter that no antacid can do. Here is how you begin your home treatment. An Acid Reflux Home Treatment Do you know what is possibly the oldest remedy known to man? Honey! Honey has been found in many Egyptian pyramids and is thought to be one of the first remedies or medicines that man has used. And surprisingly, the Egyptians knew a lot more than we give them credit for about honey. Honey has been clinically shown to do a lot of things. Studies find that honey can do everything from improve circulation to cure baldness. Honey can fight bacterial infections, reduce pain and inflammation and even regrow tissue. In fact, honey can help cure acid reflux. For curing GERD or heartburn, honey can stimulate tissue on the LES or sphincter to regrow. All you need to do is eat about 3 teaspoons daily and you are one your way to curing the cause of this disease. It is important that you take 1 teaspoon after breakfast, 1 in the middle of the day and 1 right before bed. Make sure to get pure raw honey that is usually sold in those cute little ‘honey bear’ plastic bottles. Usually the Pachaka pitta is thrown out of balance due to the intake of food, which is not really favored by the stomach. Hence Ayurveda stresses upon the avoidance of foods that tend to relax the lower esophageal sphincter. This includes food that is oily, spicy hot, sour and fermented food. Food laced with artificial preservative.. Ayurvedic treatment for acid reflux also includes the doing of Yoga. Yoga is a form of exercise, which helps in the pacification of the various dosha. Ayurved thus provides the option of getting treatment for acid reflux without suffering from undesired side effects. Learn more about diet with acid reflux on our site.
