Are You An Antacid Junkie?

Do you feel bothered by a painful feeling from the burning sensation in your esophagus and/or stomach from acid indigestion and often pop an antacid to give yourself relief?

Whether it’s a chew or a pill, over the counter or prescription, you are creating a pattern of suppressing the acids that your body needs for healthy digestion.  Chronic users are constantly on the merry go round, knowing they are going to eat, experience acid indigestion and take an antacid.  Many people take them several times a day, exceeding the “recommended dosage” and thinking these are harmless.

Well, they are not harmless.  Quite often, you don’t have an overproduction of acid, you have an underproduction of stomach acids, which essentially causes starvation in your body as the nutrients, enzymes, vitamins etc. that are necessary to keep your gut healthy and digesting properly, cannot do their job because they are halted to a STOP by an ANT-ACID!

The word Antacid translates –  Antiagainst, opposite of.  When referring to your stomach acids it’s saying against acids.

Some symptoms of low stomach acids: burning immediately after eating; burping, bloating, feeling full after a small quantity of food, peeling fingernails, hair loss, gas in the upper abdomen.  Low stomach acid has been associated with eczema, rheumatoid arthritis, weak adrenals, rosacea, chronic hepatitis and thyroid issues and more.

If you are chronic, get tested for low stomach acid (HYPOCHLORHYDRIA) and don’t forget “Be Your Own Doctor”.  Ask questions, investigate and take control of your health!

To find out more, check out a book called “Why Stomach Acid is Good for You” by Johnathan V. Wright M.D and Lane Lenard, Ph.D.  You just may be surprised you are not suffering from acid reflux, acid indigestion and heartburn after all.

Ritual Creation: Drink Warm Lemon Water with The Morning Sun

Well for starters drinking it in the morning will help your body get going.  By get going, I mean it alerts and awakens your lymph system, digestive system and the smell of lemon makes one feel refreshed.

Lemons naturally assist in hydration and staying hydrated helps you to avoid, adrenal fatigue (which I am working with right now). When your body is seriously lagging and is in a state of chronic dehydration, your adrenals cannot do their best to control your cortisol levels, which manages how you manage stress.  These two little glands are vital to keeping your body and mind in a top functioning state.

Lemons contain Vitamin C, an antioxidant, which helps to boost your immune system and keep your skin clear as it assists in ridding your body of toxins.

Lemons are an Alkaline Food which means they are not acidic.  One would think they are acidic because they are a citrus fruit, however they are an Alkaline which is needed to keep the body healthy and balanced.  Too much acidity knocks your body into a state of panic and it has to work overtime to fight off infections and illness of all kinds.

The Vibrant and Tangy Lemon is not to be overlooked!  Enjoy!
