How Chiropractic Can Help Heartburn
Taking medication to block the accumulation of stomach acid is usually the choice of people who experience heartburn on a regular basis. Of course, they are determined to seek relief because of the discomfort this condition brings. But medication can only fix the issue temporarily and does not treat the cause. Excessive use of antacids can also lead to leaky gut syndrome. Since antacids reduce the acidity in the stomach, the food you eat is not being digested properly.
Chiropractic care cannot only relieve the burning sensation and pain in the chest but can also help the stomach to help prevent future heartburn.
Chiropractors Help With Heartburn
Chiropractic care cannot only relieve the burning sensation and pain in the chest but can also help the stomach to help prevent future heartburn. The so-called GERD or gastroesophageal reflux disease is the most common cause of heartburn. GERD returns the stomach’s contents – usually fluids, back up into the esophagus. If you are taking medications and an acid-free diet but does not give you relief, the cause of your acid reflux could be a hernia. Research studies have even proved that people who received chiropractic care for their heartburn symptoms healed faster than those who did not.
Other Ways to Relieve Heartburn or Acid Reflux
Eat frequent but smaller meals every day. Eat slowly. Avoid drinks that have caffeine. Avoid spicy and acidic foods including tomatoes. Stay awake at least 3 hours after a meal. Avoid lying down right after a meal. Do not exercise immediately after a meal. Eat foods high in probiotics or take a probiotic supplement.
