How To Get Rid Of Acid Reflux Gas

Finding out how to get rid of low belly fat is a question that many people seem to have once they ve lost a good amount of weight but still have that one thing holding them back. Having that lower belly pooch is a sign that the person still needs to lose that last 5-10 pounds and this could be some of the hardest weight to lose. Most people may not realize this but losing the first 20 pounds or so is actually a lot easier than losing the last 10. I like to use the analogy with my clients it s not that difficult for a car to go from zero to 80 miles per hour but when then have to go from 80-100 it s going to require a lot more horsepower.

Assuming that you have the basics of diet and exercise well under raps we re going to look into the more intermediate to advanced aspect of training to lose the last 10 pounds. If you haven t already I would start to eliminate the last of the foods, which are causing any kind of inflammation in your body. This means I would completely switch to organic whole foods and eliminate heavily processed foods from diet. Processed foods contain many different chemicals and pesticides that will prevent you from dropping the rest of your belly fat. Other foods that have been known to cause inflammation are flour-based products such as pasta, bread and pizza. To replace this loss in carbohydrates I would look to increase your consumption of cooked beans and vegetables.

Now that you have the diet portion of your fat loss programming under control you re going to have to step up your game in the workout department. This means replacing your current workout techniques with better ones that have been proven to get better results. I would replace all your long steady-state cardio runs with high intensity interval training techniques such as sprinting. This has been proven to burn 9x s as much fat as endurance based training and your can do a lot more work in a shorter amount of time. Also start lifting heavier weights with more full body movements such as clean and presses, front squats, sumo deadlifts and burpees. Also decrease your rest time in between sets to 30 seconds maximum, as it will keep your heart rate elevated.

Also you should try to decrease your stress levels too to ensure that you lose those last 10 pounds. If you re constantly stressed out then you should try to use meditation, breathing exercises, breaks throughout the day and full nights sleep to help relax better. This will keep stress hormones such as cortisol at bay and prevent any unnecessary storage of fat. Finding out how to get rid of low belly fat is the easy part but actually implementing these strategies on a consistent basis is going to be the hard part.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How Can I avoid getting acid Reflux when I sleep?
    Lately I've been getting acid reflux during my sleep and I wake up with a lot of throat irritation. How many hours should I wait to go to bed after I eat? Is there anything I can do to stop it? I have callbacks for a show at my school soon and the irritation in my throat is causing a problem.

    • ANSWER:
      For this evening drink an 8oz. glass of lukewarm water with a teaspoon of baking soda...it will taste yucky, but honestly it will get rid of gas or an acidic stomach (which is what causes acid reflux). To keep it at bay, start taking an over-the-counter acid inhibiting medication called Prevacid OR visit your family physician for a prescription of something stronger. You can sleep on your left side to soothe your stomach as well, this position keeps the stomach acid from backing up into your esophagus. If you do not take an acid inhibiting medicine, or seek medical attention, acid reflux can lead to a more serious throat problem so please don't ignore your symptoms okay.... Good luck on your callback! :0)

  2. QUESTION:
    how do you get rid of acid in your stomach for over 10 yrs?
    i"ve been taking acid reflux pills for over ten years and nothing seems to work. What should i do?

    • ANSWER:
      "Individuals suffering with stomach and intestinal problems most frequently assume that heartburn, indigestion, gas, and reflux are caused by overproduction of stomach acid. This common misconception has been strongly re-enforced by our conventional medical profession, whose practitioners routinely prescribe stomach acid blocking medications at the slightest sign of stomach dysfunction, failing to properly diagnose the digestive problem by first monitoring the stomach's acid producing function, using scientific methods and neglecting to provide patients with common sense dietary recommendations." *

      My mother was on acid blockers for 25 years and almost died from the side effects. Today she is free of severe GERD, severe LPR, and severe Gastritis. She threw away nexium (acid blocker) and started betaine HCL with pepsin to increase stomach acid and digestive enzyme supplements to help with digestion. She also needs magnesium when stressed to prevent reflux symptoms. I highly recommend reading the links below. :)

  3. QUESTION:
    What do you do to get rid of acid reflux?
    I've had it for 2 days now, tried Gas-X and zantac. I have prilosec OTC but Im scared to take it because it says not to if you have pain when swallowing and I have pain when swallowing food and water.

    • ANSWER:
      Fill about a half of a glass up with some cold water and add half a teaspoon of baking soda. Stir well and drink. Baking soda is salty and gross but it works and after you drink it you might want to chase it down with some juice or cold water to get the after taste out of your mouth.Within a matter of a couple to several minutes, you should begin to belch. This will indicate that the baking soda is working to balance out the acidity. You should feel relief afterwards.

  4. QUESTION:
    Scientifically speaking, why is Gaviscon good for abdominal bloating?
    I have just been prescribed Gaviscon by my doctor for abdominal bloating but the label on the bottle says it is for acid reflux. I'd like to understand the science here.

    • ANSWER:
      gets rid of gas trapped in guts. acid makes gas build up from chemical reactions in the stomach. gaviscon is a bicarb so it reduces the acid thus reducing the gas and bloating

  5. QUESTION:
    Why does my anxiety go away when I dont eat?
    As soon as I stop eating solids and just drink juice/tea/coffee/stock my anxiety reduces greatly and my insides feel calm. Its like usually my body is really noisy but I dont notice.

    I started this not to lose weight or to get rid of anxiety but because whatever I eat causes me gas and acid reflux. I have tried every combination you can think of and eating very simply but everything seems to cause problems so I decide to not purposely fast but fast for a couple of days. I read that scientists now say its safe to fast 1-2 days a week but just not for prolonged periods of time.

    Does it indicate that I have some blood sugar problems or food intolerences if my body becomes much calmer as soon as I stop eating, I would go as far as to say that I can concentrate alot more.

    My anxiety started when I had an operation to remove my appendix and diverticulus ever since I have problems with food and feeling dizzy/nausea quite often. I went back and they said that it could be endometriosis or IBS , they checked without endoscope and didnt find any endo so said its probably IBS.

    Any ideas? Am I just going to have to eat hardly anything for the rest of my life but then eat when I know I will be alone so I can maintain my weight?
    getting minerals and nutritents I could manage I think in whole food powders

    • ANSWER:
      Hi...I am an IBS sufferer, and it does sound like you could possibly have this, however you could also simply have a food intolerance. I think you should go to the doctor to have various tests done, celiac/crohns etc. IBS is practically invisible and it's hard to prove that anyone has it, as it cannot be visible to ultrasounds, colonoscopys. If you have rumbling of the stomach, or gas, or bloating then these are some of the symptoms of IBS, which is just basically the last resort that doctors rule out, due to it not being anything else, even though there is no proof to it. Make sure that you drink plenty of water to hydrate yourself. Please try and see your doctor as soon as you can, so you can rule out different disorders or diseases to ease your mind and stop your anxiety. I had anxiety over everything I was eating, and was put onto anti-anxiety tablets, which have helped me greatly. See your doctor i'm sure they will find out what's wrong. But don't give up trying to find out, food is very important and i'm sure it could just be something simple.

  6. QUESTION:
    What should i do to eliminate trapped gas in stomach caused by acid reflux?
    My stomach(not my intestine) is belching and makes me uncomfortable:(

    I know that theres a lot of bubbles in my stomach that cause this, stomach acid + gas = bubbles.
    i always try to make myself burp but its hard :( what can i do to get rid of this???
    Your asking me to fart? I have trapped gas in my "stomach", not my intestine or colon. And the only thing to eliminate the gas in stomach is to burp. Fart happens when you have gas in your intestine or colon.and I dont have gas in my intestine or colon.

      After all, reading leads to knowledge. ;)
      Use Q-tips to gently clean inside the ears. Too much earwax build up can cause all sorts of illness.
      Also, if you drink half (100ml) of a Yop (Yoplait Yogurt) the bacteria's culture might help too. (if you're not allergic to milk/dairy products).
      When in doubt, consult your doctor.
      I hope you find your cure today.
      Have a healthy happy life. :)

  8. QUESTION:
    What's the average age for acid reflux and heart burn?
    I don't think I have GERD but I'm 15 years old and I'm not over weight. But this does consist daily, it stops me from sleeping, and eating regular food that I eat daily. I went to get it checked out an they said I have unusual amount of gas in my stomach . I don't know what to do now I looked up everything to do with it. If you can give me any info on what to eat or how to sleep or just anything please reply back.

    • ANSWER:
      It's common in practically all ages. Drink a lot of water, that will lower the acidity in your stomach. Don't eat anything that is unhealthy, including junk food, soda, and anything your mother tells you not to eat. Exercise is important as well. As far as the excessive gas in your stomach, search for ways to relieve gas. Go into your room, open your window, and lie down on your back. Slowly bring your knees to your chest, and try as hard as you can to get rid of the gas in your stomach. Rubbing it might help as well. I suggest locking your door. Good luck!

  9. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of nausea using medication or home remedies?
    How do I get rid of constant nausea? I take Zofran everyday for it, also Gas-X and Zantac 150mg, Omeprazole 20mg everyday. It won't go away and I'm getting to the point where I'm not eating much and feeling like I am going to vomit. Please help.

    • ANSWER:
      Of course gotta find out what it is from. But for a quick fix, two things might work tremendously. The dive reflux is good for nausea. Another great thing is to hold ice in your hands until it makes your hand hurt badly or shake. Know it sounds crazy, but it works for me. Mine works best for retraining your nervous system if you have an FGID ie: IBS, functional nausea,etc.
      That omeprazole might be killing your flora and making your nausea and acid way worse, just saying. I use to have bad nausea all the time and reflux.
      I cut most meds, which you'll go through withdraws... blah blah... complex.... wait a few months and it might be all good.

      Milk could be a culprit, caffeine can be a culprit, gluten can be a culprit. Too much sinus drainage can make nausea. Stress/anxiety can worsen everything. spicy food can be a culprit
      eat small meals, and more of them.

  10. QUESTION:
    Have any of you experienced really bad acid reflux?
    I've been experiencing shortness of breathe since last Friday and I was starting to get worried. I thought it had something to do with my lungs but then I figured the pain was mostly coming from my stomach and I always felt bloated and full that I can't even finish my meals. Have any of you experienced the same thing? If so, what are the things that have helped you get rid of this problem?

    • ANSWER:
      I get this as a symptom of Gastroparesis, or delayed stomach emptying. The food sits too long in my stomach, and then my stomach doesn't have the capacity to handle much at the next meal because it is still dealing with some of the food from the previous meal.

      Other things that can cause or contribute to this feeling of fullness/bloating and acid reflux include Food Allergies, Lactose Intolerance, Celiac Disease/non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity, stomach ulcers, low stomach acid (counter-intuitive, but this affects digestion quite a bit), gallbladder problems, pancreas problems, liver problems, gastrointestinal disorders (dysbiosis, Candida overgrowth, IBS, inflammatory bowel disease, etc.), etc.

      The pain that you describe can be from gas or muscle spasms in the gastrointestinal tract after eating, which suggests that the following information may be of help:

      I noticed a difference right away in how heavy food felt sitting in my stomach when I went on a gluten-free diet. While I don't have Celiac Disease, I do test positive for gliadin and wheat IgG antibodies, meaning that I do have some kind of immune reaction to gluten - a protein found in wheat, rye and barley. I also have one of the known Celiac genes (the genes HLA-DQ2 and/or HLA-DQ8 are found in 95% of those with biopsy-proven Celiac Disease), and my personal opinion is that I was well on my way to developing full-blown Celiac Disease.

      Other things that may help include digestive enzyme supplements, probiotics (such as acidophilus), avoidance of highly sugared foods/beverages, getting tested for food allergies and intolerances (IgE and IgG blood tests for specific foods) and avoiding the foods that show up as positive, exercise (promotes healthy gastrointestinal tract function), making sure your diet is healthy and balanced (i.e., not too much fat, adequate fiber intake, the right amount of calories and nutrients for your weight/height and activity level, etc.), drinking enough water throughout the day (the stomach needs water to make stomach acid and also other digestive juices, and also water is needed to help move food through the digestive system - recommended amount of water to drink is usually half your weight in ounces), and getting treatment for any gastrointestinal disorders -- see your doctor if the other things listed don't correct the problem.

      Take care,
