Our
Heartburn  
Resources
Acid Reflux is a disorder that can affect the digestive
tract. Many of us have experienced the burning
sensation that takes place just behind the breastbone.
This burning sensation has many different names, with
heartburn being the more commonly known name. It is
always best when stopping the rising acid cure reflux
symptoms as soon as possible as well.

Acid reflux happens when the acids from digesting foods
comes back into the lower esophagus area. This occurs
when the LES or lower esophageal sphincter muscle gets
weakened or functions improperly. The burning
sensation is due to the fact that the esophageal lining is
unable to withstand the rising acidic levels. This is
acid
reflux.

There are many different ways that you can cure or ease
the
acid reflux pain. The treatments range from medical
therapy to surgical methods. These medical treatments
and surgery are all designed with the hope of completely
eliminating acid reflux from our lives altogether.

The medical ‘acid cure reflux’ is usually antacids.
Generally
antacids should be taken and used more often.
Many people have a preference for liquid antacids rather
than the tablet variety. Antacids should be taken at least
30 to 60 minutes after you eat.

There are also two Alginic Acid and Antacids that place a
layer of foam over the stomach acidic juices to prevent
reflux. These tablets need to be chewed well so that the
chemicals within them may be activated and the healing
properties get released.

There are some medications that can be taken that have
the ability to reduce
acid reflux pain and eliminate the
possibility of the stomach acid refluxing into the
esophagus by strengthening the LES muscle. You should
be aware that these medications can have side effects to
them. You will need to talk to your doctor before you
begin a course of treatment using those medications.

Reglan which is known as metoclopramide and
Urecholine which is known as bethanecol both directly
increase the strength of the LES muscle. They both are
known to have side effects occurring from them. The
medication called Propulsid otherwise known as
Cisapride has been taken off the market due to its
cardiac side effects.

Then there are prescription medications that can be
taken for relief from
acid reflux. However you will need to
check with your physician regarding their side effects.
Some of these drugs actually lower the strength of the
LES muscle. These include the anti- spasmotics like
Levsin, Librax, and Bentyl. Then there are the drugs that
block the calcium intake. These are Procardia, Cardizem,
Calan, and Isoptin.

Another type of 'acid cure reflux' is Endoscopic Surgery.
Here the surgery is accomplished by a laparoscopic
technique where the surgery is accomplished through
tiny holes in the belly button and upper abdomen.
Recovery is quicker with this technique. There are as you
see a number of these ‘acid cure reflux’ methods, just
waiting for you to try them out, and get cured from your
acid reflux.
