WHAT IS ACID REFLUX AND GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX DISEASE (GERD)?
HCL is necessary to breakdown the food particles in their minute form. HCL help in digestion of food. These digestive juices are known as gastric juices…. Those people whose life is sedentary and those who are very irregular in their food habits and in addition to these conditions those who do not take any type of exercise, such people do get ACID REFLUX or GRED(hyperacidity). Thus those who gulp down food without chewing sufficiently. Mental ill-health, Jealous feeling, Insufficient exercise or not exercising at all add FUEL TO FIRE.

It is a term applied for excessive secretion of hydrochloric acid in the stomach.


There are several juices produced by our stomach to digest the foods. HCL is necessary to breakdown the food particles in their minute form. HCL help in digestion of food.

There are several juices produced by our stomach to digest the foods. HCL is necessary to breakdown the food particles in their minute form. HCL help in digestion of food.

These digestive juices are known as gastric juices. These types of gastric juices continuously get manufactured in the body and they excite the vagus nerve situated in the internal glands.

Many reasons are responsible in allowing these types of juices to be produced in extra quantity this vagus nerve is a part of a para-sympathetic nerve. If this gastric juice of acid gets produced in extra proportions it harms internal wall of the stomach to a very great extent. “When this happens there are ulcers found in the walls of the stomach. Thus hyperacidity and formation of ulcers are complementary to each other.”

Symptoms of acidity

§ Heartburn

§ Belching

§ Stomach cramps.

§ Nausea

§ Bitter taste in mouth.

Root Causes

The use of extra condiments, sour food, excess salt, pungent taste food like chilly, garlic etc. more than necessary chilies, eating more fried items, paucity of salad and fibers in the food, dislike of consumption of fruits.

Eating Habits

Ø Certain foods such as sour food, excess salt, pungent taste such as fatty foods, spicy foods, chocolate, caffeine, raw onions, tomato sauce, carbonated beverages and mint

Ø Alcohol

Ø Large meals

Ø Lying down soon after eating

Ø Certain medications, including sedatives, tranquilizers and calcium channel blockers for high blood pressure

Ø Cigarette smoking

Ø Not consuming milk.

Ø To eat at odd hours,

Ø To eat without proper chewing,

Ø To eat hurriedly,

Ø To eat while talking,

Ø To eat as if you are not to get it again,

Ø To eat even before the first intake of food gets digested.

Physical causes;

Insufficient exercise or not exercising at all are the additional reasons responsible for bad digestion.

Mental causes;

Ø Mental ill-health,

Ø Jealous feeling,

Ø Mental uneasi­ness,

Ø Mental harassment,

Ø Feeling tired,

Tobacco chewing as well as smoking and habit of alcohol are also responsible for hyperacidity

Those people whose life is sedentary and those who are very irregular in their food habits and in addition to these conditions those who do not take any type of exercise, such people do get hyperacidity. Thus those who gulp down food without chewing sufficiently, those who eat at irregular hours and those who eat slippery food have to suffer from hyperacidity.

Males suffer from this difficulty much more as compare to female.

DIAGNOSIS OF THE AILMENT

Normally a man having disease of hyperacidity suffers from pain in the stomach. The form of this pain in the stomach, the time at which occurs and its nature is always of a special type. This type of pain is felt on the right side of heart and under the lower ribs. This type of pain starts slowly and gradually, sometimes after the food is taken and gets reduced only if, either one vomits or takes some scientific medicine for this purpose. The common signs of this pain are burning sensation in the heart, vomiting sensation, nausea, feeling giddy and the actual vomits. If the illness is chronic and if the necessary treatment for the ailment is not taken there is a possibility of heamatemesis (vomits of blood).

Complementary and alternative medicine

Several home remedies exist for treating heartburn, but they provide only temporary relief. They include drinking baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) added to water or drinking other fluids such as soda pop or milk.

Although these liquids create temporary relief by neutralizing, washing away or buffering acids, eventually they aggravate the situation by adding gas and fluid to your stomach, increasing pressure and causing more acid reflux. Further, adding more sodium to your diet may increase your blood pressure and add stress to your heart, and excessive bicarbonate ingestion can alter the acid-base balance in your body.

If not treated; Complication

In addition to irritation and inflammation of your esophagus (esophagitis), chronic reflux of stomach acid into your esophagus can lead to one or more of the following conditions if left untreated:
Impotency – in some cases of impotency, when it not treated, we ask them about their digestion. While diagnosing we find that they were suffering from acidity. Only giving them treat  Acid Salad Powder to treat their acidity problem. We fond wonderful results that not even their acidity but their impotency were also treated at age of more than 55.
Sinusitis. As per Ayurvedic theory indigestion due to acidity leads to sinus, just like there is rain after volcano causing slippery mud. Usually Chronic acidity leads to sinus due to indigestion natural process of treating extra Kapha (mucus) gets disturbed leading to sinus.
BURNING DURING PERIODS; Burning sensation is felt during menstruation in some cases of female
Esophageal ulcer. Stomach acid can severely erode tissues in the esophagus, causing an open sore to form. The esophageal ulcer may bleed, cause pain and make swallowing difficult.
Acid can cause ulcer
§ Barrett’s esophagus. This is a serious, though uncommon, complication of GERD. In Barrett’s esophagus, the color and composition of the tissue lining the lower esophagus change. Instead of pink, the tissue turns a salmon color. Under a microscope, the tissue resembles that of the small intestine. This cellular change is called metaplasia. Metaplasia is brought on by repeated and long-term exposure to stomach acid and is associated with an increased risk of esophageal cancer. The risk of cancer is low, but you’ll need regular endoscopies to look for early warning signs of cancer if you’re diagnosed with Barrett’s esophagus.

§ Esophageal narrowing (stricture). Strictures occur in some people with GERD. Damage to cells in the lower esophagus from acid exposure leads to formation of scar tissue. The scar tissue narrows the food pathway, causing large chunks of food to get caught up in the narrowing, and can interfere with swallowing.

Risk factors

Conditions that cause difficulty with digestion can increase the risk of heartburn or GERD. These include:

Jealousy or Anger. People who usually are of jealous nature are prone to hyperacidity. When you are jealous to other you are irritate with your self burning your heart and chest unknowingly.
Obesity. Excess weight puts extra pressure on your stomach and diaphragm — the large muscle that separates your chest and abdomen — forcing open the lower esophageal sphincter and allowing stomach acids to back up into your esophagus. Eating very large meals or meals high in fat may cause similar effects.
Hiatal hernia. In this condition, also called diaphragmatic hernia, part of your stomach protrudes into your lower chest. If the protrusion is large, a hiatal hernia can worsen heartburn by further weakening the lower esophageal sphincter muscle.
Pregnancy. Pregnancy results in greater pressure on the stomach and a higher production of the hormone progesterone. This hormone relaxes many of your muscles, including the lower esophageal sphincter.
Asthma. Doctors aren’t certain of the exact relationship between asthma and heartburn. It may be that coughing and difficulty exhaling lead to pressure changes in your chest and abdomen, triggering regurgitation of stomach acid into your esophagus. Some asthma medications that widen (dilate) airways may also relax the lower esophageal sphincter and allow reflux. Or it’s possible that the acid reflux that causes heartburn may worsen asthma symptoms. For example, you may inhale small amounts of the digestive juices from your esophagus and pharynx, damaging lung airways.
Diabetes. One of the many complications of diabetes is gastroparesis, a disorder in which your stomach takes too long to empty. If left in your stomach too long, stomach contents can regurgitate into your esophagus and cause heartburn.
Peptic ulcer. An open sore or scar near the valve (pylorus) in the stomach that controls the flow of food into the small intestine can keep this valve from working properly or can obstruct the release of food from the stomach. Food doesn’t empty from your stomach as fast as it should, causing stomach acid to build up and back up into your esophagus.
Constipation or Delayed stomach emptying. In addition to diabetes or an ulcer, abnormal nerve or muscle functions can delay emptying of your stomach, causing acid backup into the esophagus.
Connective tissue disorders. Diseases such as scleroderma that cause muscular tissue to thicken and swell can keep digestive muscles from relaxing and contracting as they should, allowing acid reflux.
Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. One of the complications of this rare disorder is that your stomach produces extremely high amounts of acid, increasing the risk of acid reflux.
TREATMENT
Home therapy

§ Cold milk
§ Mulethi (Liquorice) Glycyrrhiza glablra linn
§ Amalaki (Embolic Myrobalan)
Both medical as well as surgical treatment is beneficial to the patient. Medical treatment undertaken with care definitely treats the patient and results are also very good.
