Healthy Food Tips: Acid Reflux Tips and Recipes

Approximately 20% of the population has GERD (GastroEsophageal Reflux Disease) otherwise known as acid reflux. (1) Millions of Americans are on PPI’s (protein pump inhibitors.) This drug stops the body from producing stomach acid. It’s actually a misconception that GERD is caused by too much acid. It’s actually caused by a weak Lower Esophageal Sphincter (The valve that connects the esophagus and the stomach) When this valve doesn’t close properly, the stomach acid leaks into the esophagus.

One of the questions I get most is how to deal with GERD and how to get off PPI’s all together. While this video won’t tell you how to get off PPI’s, it will help you deal with symptoms and give you a couple of tasty recipes to sooth your stomach. Have a look:

About Tamara Hoerner (1145 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
