Acid reflux is a common condition causing a burning pain, known as heartburn, in the chest. Acid reflux happens when some of the acids from the stomach flow up to the esophagus, into the gullet, which blocks the movement of food down from the mouth.
Adapt to an alkaline lifestyle and reap the incremental benefits just by changing your diet and lifestyle. The alkaline diet neutralizes the acid reflux resulting in oxygenated blood which energizes the body and metabolism. The correct pH balance in the body helps to maintain weight, lowers the risk of diabetes, joint pain, leg cramps, and other chronic diseases. And it also aids in having clean and clear skin.
Most of us are not hydrated enough, drink minimum 8-10 glasses of alkaline water every day to check acid reflux. Check the alkaline level of the water, most tap water has 6.5 pH while alkaline water has a pH scale of 9 which balances the acidic alkaline level in the body. Alkaline water has molecules which permeate the body easily and keep us more hydrated than regular water.
Kick start your day with lemon and honey water, cleanse your system before you re-fill it. It is a misnomer that citrus drinks are acidic. Lemon juice in its natural state is acidic but once metabolized it has an alkalizing effect with pH scale of 7+. It is important to note that lemon is acid in nature but once consumed its effect is alkalizing with a lot of health benefits.
Eat alkalizing food like green vegetables beetroot, avocado, broccoli, spinach, kale, peas, beans, and cucumber. Increase your fruit intake.
