Acid Reflux or GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) is a relatively common condition in which stomach acid returns into the esophagus and even up to the throat irritating the tissue.
You’ll know you have GERD if you suffer from persistent heartburn (a burning sensation behind your breast bone that can extend from upper abdomen to the throat), regurgitation of bitter acid into your throat or a bitter taste in your mouth, dry cough, hoarseness, feeling of tightness in the throat and wheezing.
Additional symptoms can be a sore throat, trouble swallowing, nausea and post-meal pain in your abdomen.
Lying down often worsens the symptoms of heartburn.
When the lower esophageal sphincter is weakened or doesn’t close tightly enough, it allows gastric juices to flow back from the stomach into the esophagus.
Most doctors will prescribe over-the-counter medications including antacids, H2-blockers and prescription medications such as proton pump inhibitors, coating agents and in severe cases, surgery.
But taking these medications over prolonged time will have unwanted side-effects. Nor do they address the root cause.
When food is not digested properly in the stomach, it ferments in the digestive tract which leads to a build-up of gases and alcohols. This creates pressure in the stomach leading to bloating and discomfort and can even force digestive juices back into the sensitive esophagus.
Pinolenic acid, found in high concentrations only in Siberian Pine Nut Oil – has been shown to aid in digestion, balancing out the stomach environment and preventing food from fermenting in the digestive tract.
This leads to the effective relief of bloating, pain, reflux and other stomach problems, naturally and without side-effects.
The Other Option’s DIGESTIVE REMEDY™ Siberian Pine Nut Oil improves digestion, stimulates the growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria, and assists in protecting the stomach’s mucosal lining from inflammation and ulceration.
5ml three times per day for 6-8 weeks followed by a 5ml daily maintenance dose will help to resolve GERD.
Best taken on an empty stomach, it’s advisable to wait 30-60 minutes before food.
An additional 5ml can also be taken at ANY TIME when symptoms of heartburn or reflux arise (shown to offer symptomatic relief from heartburn within 20-30 minutes)
