Acid Reflux Relief

Acid Reflux Relief

 

Acid Reflux is nobody's friend.  Although it's extremely common it's also very uncomfortable.  Our stomach is designed to handle harsh stomach acid but our esophagus is not.  As the stomach acid flows back up the esophagus it burns, leaves a horrible taste in your mouth and wreaks havoc on your throat and mouth if you experiencing Acid Reflux on a regular basis.

Hopefully, you'll think about reaching for a natural alternative before an "over the counter" option.  There are several good natural choices available like organic Apple Cider Vinegar but, speaking for myself I can hardly stand the thought of drinking acidic ACV after an episode of Acid Reflux!  Essential oils work great for a lot of people too but I have a favorite "hunch" that's been working for me and now there's research to explain "why"!  I can't wait to share it with you because it's so easy and so good for you too.

Doctors now believe that a bacteria called Helico Pylori (H. Pylori) inhabits the stomach and the esophagus. This bacteria stimulates cells in the stomach to produce excessive amounts of gastric or hydrochloric acid which can encourage the stomach acid back out and up into the esophagus.  For this misery, many doctors will readily suggest 3 things:

  1. Over the counter meds
  2.  Acid Blockers
  3.  Antibiotics

Costly, time consuming and largely ineffective. Now for the interesting part, the solution!  I've been using Coconut oil every which way I can lately because of it's rich nutrients.  It seemed a natural choice when I woke up in the middle of the night with A.R.  I reached for the jar of my favorite organic coconut oil and, my bottle of pure Frankincense to help with the inflammation going on. I added 1 drop of Frankincense to 1 teaspoon of organic coconut oil and swallowed it.  All the burning and the foul taste in my mouth just went away and I was able to go back to sleep.  I now keep a small jar of whipped coconut oil and Frankincense pre-blended just for convenience.

Before I end this, I'm leaving you with an informative article written by Dr. Sanford Pinna regarding Coconut oil and it's anti-biotic properties.  "Coconut oil is made of saturated fatty acids of the medium length variety. Its major Saturated Acid is called LAURIC ACID. The Lauric Acid invades the cell wall and destroys it."  This is why I LOVE using high quality organic coconut oil along with pure essential oils, they're both a powerful and complimentary of one another!
