Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Looking for natural ways to relieve heartburn?
    I just put some REALLY acidic stuff (those water enhancer things) into my water, and it gave me heartburn. I don't have any Tums or Rolaids or anything and I don't think I'd be able to get them anytime soon.

    Besides water, what could I have to combat the acidity a little? Would tortilla chips do the trick?

    • ANSWER:
      Eating a red apple immediately after a meal helps but a guaranteed success is when you suck
      a single clove which takes anything from one hour to two. When it becomes soft bite into it and
      swallow. The juice from sucking a clove coats the inner linings of the stomach thus helping in
      getting over the heartburn besides it strengthens the teeth and you smell nice.
      Good luck and God bless. Cheers! :o )

  2. QUESTION:
    Is there a natural way to cure heartburn?
    Like, without going to the store and buying medicine for it.
    Anything I might have at home already?

    • ANSWER:
      Heartburn is the sensation one feels when gastric acid in the stomach flows back to the esophagus thereby burning its lining. The burning sensation is located somewhere near the location of the heart hence the term "heartburn".

      Gastric acid builds up in the stomach after eating a meal to help digest the food coming into it.

      When one is standing up, the natural flow of food is to go down from the mouth to the throat through the esophagus and into the stomach, etc. However, when one lies down after a meal or while the food is being digested, the gastric juices sometimes flow back into the esophagus.

      There are several ways to temporarily relieve the sensation of heartburn but not cure heartburns, which are to take medications to reduce the acidity in the esophagus and/or stomach, or deaden the nerves near it enough so as not to cause discomfort. However, these are temporary solutions and may have to be a maintenance thing (meaning: you have to take medications for it every time).

      However there is a way to prevent it from happening. Do not lie down at least 30 minutes after a meal, and a least 1 hour after a heavy meal (meat). Meats require a lot of gastric juices to digest so plan to eat at least for period of time sufficiently enough for digestion to occur before lying down. But if you are tired and need to lie down, do try to lie on your ride side. The esophagus in the human anatomy is shaped like a curved "C". So that when you lie on your right side, food flows down from the esophagus into the stomach. Lying down on your left side would bring the acid from the heavier stomach down back to the esophagus.

      There is also a preventive measure, which is to avoid food that may affect the sphincter muscle to relax the opening between the stomach and esophagus, such as chocolate, peppermint, and chamomile tea shortly before bedtime (source: Wikipedia). Also do try to avoid very spicy foods as spices specially hot peppers can paralyze the sphincter muscles and cause it not to contract when gastric juices are returning from the stomach back into the esophagus (other medical sources).

  4. QUESTION:
    what is the best and easiest way to cure or prevent heartburn?
    I sometimes find that certain foods or drinks can make me not just have a jumpy tummy, but feel nauseous too and would like to know of some more natural rather than medical options.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Fiery Fox

      Here are some idease on how to heal the condition. Be sure to clease your system of toxins by doing a colon and liver clease every 3-4 months. Drink at least 64 oz of distilled water to flush your blood as well.

      Causes of Heartburn
      The most common causes of heartburn are overeating, and eating meals that are predominantly acid-forming and abundant in unhealthy fats, spices, and commercially processed foods. Heartburn can also be caused by low levels of hydrochloric acid (HCl), deficiencies in the body s production of enzymes, poor adrenal and/or spleen function, and/or diminished liver function due to toxicity. Hiatal hernia, stress, or smoking, can cause heartburn, as well.

      In addition, food allergies lead to poor digestion which can also contribute to heartburn, as can combining too many different types of foods at the same meal. Heartburn can be brought on by drinking excess fluids during mealtime, eating too fast, or eating in a stressed environment. Heartburn can also be connected to constipation, similar to a backed up septic system. In this case, the body can have a difficult time digesting and processing the food coming in, if the previous meal is not going down and being eliminated properly.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Natural Cures

      Aromatherapy: The essential oil of cardamon can relieve heartburn symptoms.

      Diet: Avoid all commercially processed foods, spicy foods, sugars, refined carbohydrates, unhealthy fats, coffee and other caffeine products, chocolate, sodas, commercial non-herbal teas, alcohol, orange and grapefruit juice, tomato products, milk and dairy products, and foods containing peppermint and spearmint. Also have yourself screened for potential food allergies and sensitivities and avoid those foods for which you test positive.

      Emphasize a diet rich in organic whole foods, especially organic fresh green vegetables and green vegetable drinks. Free-range organic meats and poultry, and wild-caught fish are also recommended. In addition, be sure to drink plenty of pure filtered water throughout the day.

      Avoid overeating and eating meals late in the evening. As a general rule of thumb, in order to prevent and reverse heartburn symptoms, eat meals that are predominantly alkalizing in nature, especially green vegetables. (For more information about how to eat alkalizing foods, see pH.) Meals should ideally consist of generous portions of fresh leafy green salads, bare or lightly dressed, with an equally generous portion of lightly steamed vegetables and a fist sized portion of steamed, baked, broiled or carefully grilled protein. Organically produced foods, and carefully chosen oils, such as raw virgin coconut butter/oil, extra virgin olive oil and high lignan flax seed oil are your safest options. Avoid all fried foods, and all hydrogenated fats and oils. Choose raw, rather than roasted nuts and seeds, both in whole and butter form. Raw almond butter is a better option than peanut butter, and is a great snack when spread on apple slices.

      Minimize your intake of both coffee and black tea, as well as alcoholic beverages. This is essential if heartburn is an issue.

      Foods that can often quickly resolve heartburn problems are apples, raw cucumbers (peeled), brown rice, and walnuts. Sipping a glass of pure, filtered water with a couple of teaspoons of raw organic apple cider vinegar or baking soda (one teaspoon to eight ounces of water) can also quickly neutralize heartburn attacks.

      Herbal Medicine: Useful herbs for heartburn include agrimony, aloe vera, angelica, fennel, garlic, gentian, goldenseal, licorice root, marshmallow root, parsley, and slippery elm.

      Homeopathy:
      Arsenicum album for heartburn accompanied by anxiety, chills and thirst, abdominal cramping
      Nux vomica for heartburn caused by fats or sour foods and/or accompanied by feelings of irritability
      Sulfur for heartburn caused by overeating and/or accompanied by burping, late morning hunger, or early morning diarrhea.

      Juice Therapy: Fresh squeezed cucumber juice can often quickly resolve heartburn symptoms.

      Lifestyle: If you smoke, stop, and also avoid exposure to secondhand cigarette smoke. In addition, learn how to effectively cope with and manage stress. A regular exercise program is of the utmost importance as is a whole foods diet. Also avoid overeating and eating meals late in the evening. Allow at least 3 hours between meals, unless blood sugar problems are an issue, in which case, eating smaller frequent meals is an option.

      Nutritional Supplements: The most useful nutritional supplements for treating and preventing heartburn are digestive enzymes (taken with every meal) and calcium carbonate (take 600 mg in liquid or chewable form every two to three hours until symptoms subside).

      Probiotics such as acidophilus and Bifidobacteria, can also be helpful, as can fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) and soil-based organisms. FOS is an all-natural carbohydrate microorganism that has been shown by researchers to serve as a fertilizing agent that enables Bifidobacteria to thrive in the large intestine, where it helps to protect against harmful bacteria.

      Soil-based organisms are beneficial microbes found in soil. Taken as a supplement, they go to work to detoxify the gastrointestinal tract while eliminating fungi, molds, parasites, viruses, and yeasts. They also help to improve absorption of nutrients and boost both immune and overall cell function, including the production of RNA and DNA. In addition, they act as natural antioxidants.

      Alternative Professional Care
      The following therapies can also help to prevent and relieve heartburn: Acupressure, Acupuncture, Ayurveda, Biofeedback Training and Neurotherapy, Detoxification Therapy, Environmental Medicine, Enzyme Therapy, Flower Essences, Mind/Body Medicine, Naturopathic Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Yoga

      Best of health to you

  6. QUESTION:
    Why are my legs not swollen in the morning, but seem mildly so in the evening?
    So I just noticed something I considered rather strange.

    First of all, it should be mentioned that:

    I'm male
    I'm 24 years old
    No prior incidents of early life heart issues(My grand father died of a heart problem when he was 80 years old, that's it)
    No prior incidents in myself related to heart issues or other circulation disorders.
    I do not smoke
    I do not drink
    I do not take any drugs(Prescription or otherwise)
    I drink little to no caffeine
    I am vegetarian, I eat almost no saturated fat or 'animal protein'
    My ankles are naturally thick(I'm European :p)
    I am a gamer, I sit down for long periods of time with minimal movement in my legs for several hours at a time.

    Alright, with that out of the way....

    I have recently discovered that when I get out of bed in the morning, and go do my chores etc. Take a shower, do the laundry and such, my ankles seem fine, and are not swollen at all! Then after they're all done I'll sit down at the computer and commence playing video games etc. for several hours before getting up for lunch or dinner etc. and once I get up I'll notice that

    1) One or both legs are sore, as if I'm been moving a lot. It's not strong pain, it's just a minor annoying pain that I can easily ignore and go about my business with, and lasts less than a few min after getting up.
    2) My ankles both seem to be very lightly swollen(So little I'm actually questioning if they are or not!) and I can feel a minor annoying painless 'pressure' sensation in my lower leg/ankle.
    3) Sometimes my left leg will have an irritating pain that goes away with sleep and is gone for several days or even weeks before it comes back for 1 evening.
    4) None of these symptoms seem to get worse, it always seem the same to me.
    5) I have no shortness of breath, I have no abnormally discolored veins on my legs, I feel no pain whatsoever in the areas I believe are swollen. I have no chest pain which could be related to heart issues(What chest pain I might have is quick, mild, and vanishes fast, akin to that of minor heartburn)

    Some speculation of my own:
    Could it simply be gravity? I've read some that a common, harmless and mild swelling in the leg can be caused simply by gravity as you stand or sit for longer periods of time and natural fluids pool in your lower extremities and will be relieved once you sleep(Note that my ankles seem fine when I wake up, and seem very mildly thicker in the evening)

    Anyway, I'd like some more input on this, what do you guys think?

      After all, reading might/could lead 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 eat some Yogurt with Active Bacteria's Culture, it 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. :)

  10. QUESTION:
    How to treat dyspepsia the natural way?
    please give me some tips.

    • ANSWER:
      Home Remedies:
      Drink It
      Make your own Alka-Seltzer-like heartburn and indigestion remedy by mixing baking soda and water in equal parts. You can also try cumin seeds in water, coriander juice with a pinch of salt, ginger tea, peppermint tea and cinnamon in water. These things can be taken both proactively to prevent symptoms and for relief when they occur.

      Fruit
      Eat a piece of fruit after a meal or when you experience the symptoms of heartburn or indigestion. Papaya works well because it has an enzyme called papain that helps aid digestion. Bananas help because they coat the stomach, and grapes help because they are high in fiber and low in acidity.
      Save a little room when you are eating and have a few almonds. Raw almonds help ease heartburn because they are high in oils and the oils neutralize stomach acid. You can eat them preemptively to prevent heartburn or at the first sign of heartburn.

      Licorice
      Take a licorice root tablet to relieve indigestion or heartburn. Licorice contains glycyrrhizin, which reduces inflammation and protects the stomach. However, licorice should never be used long-term or by women who are pregnant or nursing.
