Can vomiting help acid reflux?
I've had acid reflux for years now. It's actually turned into Barrett's Esophagus (a premalignent condition that is the result of acid reflux). While vomiting can help, it can also be a bit harmful. Usually when you have acid reflux so badly, you'll vomit bile (which is practically just acid from your stomach). It can sometimes be black, or even yellow. While it may make you feel better to do it, it can be very harmful to your teeth, as well as your esophageal lining. The acid from the bile will eat away at your teeth, which is why sometimes a dentist can identify a bulemic because of the acid damage to his/her teeth. I highly suggest seeing a doctor and looking into some medication specifically for acid reflux. Nexium 40mg (the purple pill that you see advertised on TV) is probably the best pill available. However, only a doctor can decide how severe your acid reflux may be. If it's less severe, he may prescribe something a little less strong, such as Prilosec. So, if you're having to vomit frequently due to acid reflux, I would schedule an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible to help prevent further scarring or damage to your esophageal lining. Please feel free to message me if you have anymore questions!

Well, acid reflux can be described as a painful problem in thechest and stomach. The habit of having large meals or the excessiveconsumption of alcohol and even coffee may be …responsible for acidreflux. Pregnant women are also more likely to suffer from acidreflux due to hormonal changes during this period. Besides, acidreflux happens when you have stomach problems. There are somenatural home remedies for acid reflux that are highly effectivein dealing with the problem and prevent it from coming back. 1. Almond Almond contains a high amount of oil that can help control thestomach acid and balance the pH level inside the body 2. Apple Consuming just some slices of apple per day can help you get rid ofpain caused by acid reflux. Apple can also control the productionof acid in the stomach very quickly. 3. Apple Cider Vinegar You can consume it in the form of capsules or tablets after everymeal to improve the digestion. 4. Banana A banana can help calm thestomach 5. Baking Soda It can take effects instantly and the irritating symptoms of acidreflux will disappear. There are total 15 ways listed by Authority Remedies according to my knowledge. Thank you. Answer also: Highly recommended by my gastroenterologist was totake a probiotic EVERY day. You can take in capsule or liquid form.I also highly recommend apple cider vinegar as well as Kevitabottled drinks which contains apple cider vinegar and probiotics.Kombucha bottled drinks also work wonders but because it has blacktea just be aware of the caffeine. DO NOT EAT MEAT, especially redmeat and heavy meals late or close to bedtime. My gastro doc saiddo not eat after 7:00 pm.
i dont know what that is,but i know what worked for me after 30 years of suffering from acic reflux and heartburn.i put a couple of capfulls of apple cider vinegar into a glas…s of water and drink it........you're done.try it for a day or two. it absolutely cured mine.lol.
The acid reflux medicine such as alka seltzer, mylanta or prilosec. you can get at walmart,foodcity,iga, basicaly anywere. i have it myself.
Apples and applesauce are great for acid reflux. They work best taken as a preventative measure....before you reflux starts. An apple a day works perfectly for me. If you do …have an acid reflux attack, eating an apple or some no sugar added applesauce can be very effective at relieving symptoms. The high acidity level of the apple causes the stomach to completely halt acid production. Then the fiber in the food aids digestion. I had AWFUL reflux. To the point where I was nauseas and waking up in the middle of the night trying to not throw up. Apples are a natural cure that changed my life. I take no other acid reducing medicine.
No (added NaCl) salt diet! What doctors constantly ignore is, without chloride, stomach acid (HCl) canNOT be produced. Stop feeding your body salt and you will reduce acid pro…duction within 2 days. Some (simple, single=mono) sugars eaten with your salt can bond the chloride. Things like glucose, dextrose, maltodextrine (but strangely not normal sugar, sucrose which is a double sugar. Frutose has too many calories). Mono-sodium glutamate also helps. It has excess sodium (to neutralize acid) and no chloride(!), but unfortunately makes people forgetful with their short term memory. Milk+(fat blocker)Cactus-FigThistel also helps, but don't overdose, otherwise gallbladder acid side-pain from a too low-fat diet. The gall bladder needs some fats or oils to work on, otherwise it painfully stores its acid. Milk has (natural, biological) calcium to neutalize acid. Chemical bases are unstable & excess usage produces cramp syndromes within 2 days, for things like Calcium carbonate, magnesium carbonate, sodium bicarbonate, etc. If you have to use those chemicals, then mix them with (food acids, like) lemon juice, to fizz away their instability for about 15minutes. All biological life is made of optically left molecules; chemicals are made of left & right, meaning 50% junk. Food decays to 50/50% after 4years, called racemization. Good luck! Because most foods are salted. You need salt to live. Might be argued, but we don't eat just pure sugar or protein or fat. Instead, we eat food (=living organisms) which have salts, e.g. minerals, not just sodium or chloride. Sea fish & birds have a salt gland e.g. near the nose, which gets rid of extra salt. Overdose of salt is unhealthy. Cows get enough minerals from the grass_roots' extraction. You don't need more. I don't see cows salting their pastures, & they are still alive. Some (1 sided) medical misconceptions have hypnotized & brainwashed the public into believing the wrong thing. Balance is what we need; not fanatic extremes. Salted chips, cola, sugared water pop etc. is all that going to help the mineral balance? No! Meat (&/or fish, milk, eggs), vegetables & fruit do. Please don't tell me they don't have minerals. They do. Even lake or stream water has minerals, without chloride. Correctly stated: You need natural minerals from fresh food & water to live; not added table salt (NaCl). I make the distinction between common "salt" (NaCl), versus (mineral) "salts" which encompass the whole chemical periodic table. A little bit of chloride is present & useful, but too much causes excess stomach acid.
How do you get Acid Reflux (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease or GERD) Acid reflux occurs when the lower esophageal sphincter (muscular valve) doesn't properly close allowing …acid from the stomach to reflux back up the esophagus which can cause burning of the esophageal lining. Acid reflux is a burning sensation usually in the chest area just behind the breast bone. Acid reflux is often more painful when bending over or lying down. It is not something to be concerned about if you have heartburn occasionally. It can be treated easily with over-the-counter medications and making some lifestyle changes. Here Are Some Medical Conditions That Can Increase The Chance Of Having Acid Reflux: Hiatal Hernia Diabetes Autoimmune diseases, such as Crest syndrome, scleroderma and Raynaud phenomenon. Some Prescription Medications Can Interfere With The Lower Esophageal Sphincter Function, These Include: Certain blood pressure medications. Some heart medications. The asthma drug, theophylline. Some osteoporosis medications. Aspirin and ibuprofen. Heartburn that occurs more frequently and interferes with your daily routine may be a symptom that is more serious. It's a good idea to see your doctor and discuss your symptoms. FOR MORE INFORMATION AND VIDEO GO TO: http:www.emergencysuppliesinfo.com
With acid reflux, it's best not to lie down at all right after eating. When you do lie down, I find it best to be propped up, no matter which side. Acid reflux is caused when …a muscle between the stomach and esophagus lets acid leak out of the stomach. During the day, gravity usually keeps the acid where it belongs, but when laying down, that may not be the case. Propping up lets gravity still work.
Yes, it does. Source: http://www.apple-cider-vinegar-benefits.com/vinegar-and-acid-reflux.html
That depends upon the cause. If you have a hiatal hernia causing reflux, then anything that decreases intra-abdominal pressure can improve the reflux. So, if you are obese and… have a lot of intra-abdominal fat, losing weight may improve the reflux slightly. Also, what you eat can affect symptoms. Some foods, like tomatoes, oil, garlic, chocolate, and several others, can increase reflux symptoms.
Dietary changes, lifestyle changes and medications such as Tums, Alka Seltzer, Mylanta, Prilosec or Nexium.
I could not find any literature out there supporting Graham Cracker therapy for acid reflux prevention. Although I enjoy Graham Crackers, I have to answer No! Unless Graham Cr…ackers increase lower esophageal sphincter tone or increase gastric/gut motility, I can see no reason as to why it would prevent reflux. However, if it helps your reflux symptoms, maybe you can submit yourself as a case-study.
Acid reflux the result of an increase in acidity of the stomach. Antacids help by adding base to the acid in the stomach to lower the pH to a more "normal" level.
it says that acupressure is one of the aids in to ease acid reflux and also by relaxation therapy.

Does Coke provide help for heartburn? For me, the jury is still out. I had severe heartburn for the last few nights. I found myself eating Tums and drinking Mylanta. I polishe…d off the last of the Mylanta, with very temporary relief and ate about 10 Tums, with no resulting relief and was out of options. Keep in mind, this ocurred late at night. Suddenly I got a distinct craving for a Coke. Drinking a Coca-Cola seemed ludicrous to me, especially with all of the acids and carbonation that it has. Desperate, I drank the soda rather quickly then suddenly passed out. I was exhausted and fell asleep, so I'm not sure whether the Cola was the answer to my relief or not, but I do believe it's worth a try.

Yes, Zypan will help by supplying more acid. Zypan contains betaine hydrocloride and pancreatic enzymes. Acid reflux is caused, more than likely, by not enough stomach acid, c…ausing the esophageal sphincter to relax and allow stomach acid to rise out of the stomach. That is why you feel the burning. I took Mylanta for many years for indigestion not knowing I needed more stomach acid instead of less. Since taking Zypan, I have not taken any OTC drugs for indigestion or acid reflux.

Well first of all you DO NOT want it. You can be born with it or get it by over stuffing your self. I am a sufferer. I take 2 tums before i eat and 2 after i eat. Sometimes th…ey don't work so i get a over-the-counter medication that helps soothe it and i take to swallows of it BTW its mint yummy! anyway with me some food like spaghetti sauce from pizza hut with their spaghetti , types of pizza, apples, mostly spicey foods i stay away from but i gotta have tacos you know lol but only sometimes they hurt me . How i got it. acid reflux is a disease and it is really pain full . You have a cover almost like a cap over the opening of your stomach and when you swallow it opens . When you eat acid is in your stomach to digest and when you eat too much guess what, that acid has digested all of it and that acid has caused a problem in your stomach with the cover. Now when you eat you have to be careful because now your lid doesn't close all the way and it causes ruins acid smelling burps and stomach pain . I hope i helped you
