How to Cure Acidity Permanently Acid Reflux is a condition caused when acid from the stomach backs up into the esophagus causing it to become irritated and inflamed. The Esophagus also known as the food pipe is the tube that stretches from your throat to your stomach. When you swallow your food it goes down the esophagus to the stomach. Acid reflux or Heartburn can happen to almost everyone. Many people are struggling to find how to cure acid reflux or heartburn permanently. This is because heartburn is a condition that cannot be cured by taking a drug. Strong determination and high commitment are required to stop this problem effectively. After you eat a meal your stomach produces hydrochloric acid to help digest your food. The cells lining your stomach secrete a protective mucus that resists corrosion by this acid. When the acid backs up into your esophagus there is no protective mucous in that area and the acid can damage the lining. There are many contributing factors to acid reflux most of which are preventable. Overeating for example especially before bedtime can overload your stomachs ability to digest your meal efficiently. The result is an overworked sphincter muscle in the entrance to your stomach. The sphincter is a type of valve that relaxes when you swallow your food to allow it to enter the stomach. After it passes into the stomach this muscle contracts to prevent stomach acid from moving up into the esophagus. Another primary cause is combining your foods improperly. Like overeating when you dont combine foods properly your digestive juices can neutralize and slow down the digestive process. Learning how to cure acid reflux for many people may be as simple as learning to combine the foods that you eat properly. For example: You should always eat fruit on an empty stomach. When a fruit is combined with most other types of food it digests very slowly creating gas and indigestion. You should eat fruit on an empty stomach preferably no sooner than thirty minutes before eating other foods or wait at least three hours after eating other foods. Contrary to the good old American way meat and potatoes do not mix well. One requires an alkaline enzyme to digest and the other an enzyme that is acidic. When this two mix they neutralize and not much good comes of it. The food sits in your stomach. Your body then works harder than it should have to. You feel bloated and your stomach rumbles and grumbles. Eat more fiber The lack of fiber in your diet can cause everything to slow down and get back up. Fresh fruits and vegetables and lots of them daily can do wonders for your digestive system. It is important however to combine them properly with other foods. Drink more water Water keeps things moving. The average adult should be drinking at least eight to ten glasses of water a day. If you drink a lot of caffeine you should drink even more water.

Your stomach lining secretes the digestive acid fluids and other chemicals that are needed to break down the food particles that you eat so that the digestive process can begin. The problem that you have is to do with a muscular valve called the esophageal sphincter. This valve connects the lower end of your esophagus your throat to the upper end of your stomach. Its designed to open up and allow food to go down into your stomach and then close to stop food and acid from traveling upwards. Now when youre eating your food is only supposed to go downwards from the esophagus and into your stomach where it gets broken down and digested. However one of the reasons that you are suffering from acid reflux is because the esophageal sphincter relaxes too frequently opens up when it shouldnt and allows some of the contents of your stomach to travel back up into your throat which is why you can either taste what youre digesting or you get a sour taste in your mouth.
