Remedies for Heartburn Relief

Heartburn (often called acid indigestion) is often mistaken for chest pain due to a heart attack. This remedy is for fast relief of acid reflux, burning pain, sour stomach, belching and indigestion.

What is heartburn?

Over 60 million Americans have occasional symptoms of heartburn, burning in the chest, nausea and regurgitation. 800,000 people have chronic heartburn, a condition known as gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD.

Heartburn (often called acid indigestion) is often mistaken for chest pain due to a heart attack. It usually occurs 30-60 minutes after meals.

Heartburn appears to be driving the nation's fastest-increasing type of cancer known as adenocarcinoma. The antacids often used to help the symptoms of heartburn could do more harm than good.

This cancer, a type of esophageal disease has jumped sixfold in the last 30 years. No one knows why esophageal cancer is on the rise, but experts believe heartburn is the cause.

Esophageal adenocarcinoma affects 23 in 1 million people. That's up from fewer than 4 cases in 1 million people in 1975, and doctors think that overeating is largely to blame.

Stomach Soothe for Heartburn

Stomach Soothe is a uniquely effective formula for reducing gas, heartburn and indigestion. This formula uses a combination of gentle herbs to soothe and relax the digestive tract and helps improve digestive function. Stomach Soothe supports proper stomach acid balance and helps to reduce frequency and intensity of stomach distress.

This multi-purpose herbal formula contains nutritional support for most functions of the digestion system including a superior digestive tonic that can be taken at the end of a meal for comfort in the stomach, especially when too much has been consumed and/or the wrong food was chosen.

There are herbs that are whole, healthy and natural that are uniquely able to help reduce stomach distress. Catnip, while stimulating cats, is calming and sedating to humans, especially for the digestive system.

Instead of reaching for over-the-counter and prescription medications that merely block stomach acids and pain and further unbalance digestive functions, use Stomach Soothe to reduce gas and stomach pain and support the healing of delicate stomach tissues.

The formula:

  • Catnip (Nepeta cataria) was used extensively in Europe as a calming drink before black teas were introduced to England from the Orient. This herb effectively relieves stomach cramps and is slightly sedative with a gentle diuretic effect that increases gallbladder activity. Catnip has excellent pain reducing qualities. It has a constituent that is similar to those found in valerian, an herb that is well known for its sedating action.

  • Meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria) is a moderately astringent herb that is a settling, salicin-rich digestive aid. It cools and calms the gastrointestinal system, reduces heartburn and over-acidity of the stomach, and is often used in place of aspirin for individuals who have sensitive digestive systems.

  • Fennel Seed (Foeniculum vulgare) is antispasmodic, helps to increase proper gastrointestinal activity, calms mild spasms in the gastrointestinal tract, and reduces bloating. It works to effectively break up and expel flatulence. Fennel has been used in many cultures to prevent gas and stomach upsets.

  • CBN� Aromaceutical Blend: Contains a special anti-flatulence aromaceutical blend that enhances the actions of the herbs and assists in mineral electrolyte dynamics throughout the digestive and nervous system.

  • Proprietary Herbal Catalytic Flavoring, exclusively formulated for Femhealth liquid TincTract� formulas, catalytically enhances the effectiveness of the herbs in this formula.

Digestive Enzymes

Too few digestive enzymes leads to poor digestion, poor absorption, heartburn and acid reflux. This can lead to indigestion, food allergies, constipation, bloating. This heartburn medicine works.

Balanced digestive enzyme formula for complete digestion with the most useful enzymes available with papain, pancreatin, bromelain and ox bile extracts.

Chronic heartburn appears to be fueling the nation's fastest-growing cancer, esophageal cancer. Some 3 million Americans are thought to have a type of esophagus damage from severe acid reflux that puts them at increased risk for the deadly cancer. Almost 15,000 Americans will be diagnosed with esophageal cancer this year. Most won't be diagnosed until they feel symptoms such as trouble swallowing and loss of appetite.

The prognosis is poor: Just 16 percent of esophageal cancer patients survive five years, and 14,000 are predicted to die this year. Most have esophageal adenocarcinoma, the type linked to severe chronic heartburn.

Most digestive problems can be helped with digestive enzymes, including heartburn, excessive abdominal gas, irritable bowel syndrome and colitis.

Ultra Enzyme is for those who need help with digestion. They are in a 800 mg tablet and could be your answer to better, digestive health.

Each tablet contains the following comprehensive ingredients of highest quality. Betain HCL (from beets and molasses), 200mg, Pancreatin 4x, 200mg, (supplying: Amylae 20,000 USP units, Prolease 20,000 USP units, Lipase 3,400 USP units), Papain (70 MCU from papaya) 100mg, Cellulase 10mg, Ox Bile Extracts 100 mg, Pepsin Enzymes (NF 1:10,000) 50mg, Bromelain (2400 GDU from pineapple) 50mg, Papaya Enzymes 45mg, Pineapple Enzymes 45mg, Other ingredients: Dicalcium Phosphate, Cellulose, Stearic Acid, and Magnesium Stearate.

The function of digestion is to reduce food particles from their combined form (long-chained molecules) to their smaller basic form. This is necessary so that these particles can pass across the stomach wall. This is accomplished by digestive enzymes that split the molecular bonds and add a molecule of water to the broken ends. After the food is digested, it is then assimilated for growth tissue repair and energy production.

The process of digestion begins in the mouth as we chew our food. Saliva is added at this time, which contains digestive enzymes and other necessary factors need to stimulate this process.

After we swallow the food, digestion by salivary enzymes and by the enzymes found in the food itself continues in the upper part of the stomach for 30 to 60 minutes. This is the minimal time it takes for the body to concentrate enough HCL acid to initiate the next step of digestion.

The food now is liquefied in the acidity of the stomach, and then enters the small intestine where it is alkalized by secretions of the pancreas. The body adds its own digestive enzymes at this point.

The presence of food in the duodenum causes bile to be released from the gall bladder to emulsify fats. This is necessary since the presence of fat severly retards enzymatic action. Remember to use Ultra Enzyme with each meal and also between meals for best results in preventing heartburn and other digestive problems.

Recommendation: As a Dietary supplement, take 1-2 tablets with each meal. Pancreatin and Ox Bile are enteric coated and provide the release of these ingredients in the intestines. The other enzyme ingredients are not enteric coated and dissolve in the stomach.

Probiotic bacteria prefer an acidic pH and can live in the presence or absence of oxygen.

These friendly bacteria have a highly significant role to play, which is becoming more widely recognized among health professionals in influencing our health within the complex metabolic, biochemical and nutritional cycles of the human body. Research has documented considerable evidence for the wide-ranging therapeutic properties of probiotic organisms and has established their role in maintaining optimal health.

The major areas of Probiotics therapeutic clinical action includes:

� Competition against harmful micro-organisms including Candida, preventing colonization of pathogens through the production of inhibitory substances including acids, hydrogen peroxide and natural antibiotics � Enhancement of digestion of lactose (milk sugar) � Reduction in blood cholesterol levels � Immune enhancement, including enhanced macrophage activity � Reduction in the levels of and deactivation of potential cancer causing chemicals, particularly in the colon and direct anti-tumor activity of certain strains � Reduction in liver toxicity � Enhancement of peristalsis, digestion, regularity and re-absorption of nutrients.
