Heartburn sufferers may be bemused by the title of this article as most will believe that there is no cure for heartburn. So if you are a sufferer, then you are about to learn that not only is a permanent cure for reflux possible, but it is totally natural and drug free. So, lose all your preconceived ideas, adopt an open mind and you will discover a life, free of heartburn and those pills, is not a dream but a reality.
We firstly need to understand why we are told that heartburn and the acid reflux that causes it cannot be cured.
All the medication that is available to those suffering regular heartburn attacks works in the same way, by controlling the acid that your stomach produces. While this may seem logical, given that it is acid that causes all the pain and distress, there is a fundamental flaw in this type of treatment. Most cases of regular heartburn occur because of a weakness that has developed in the valve mechanism that should prevent the acidic stomach contents flowing back (refluxing) into the gullet.
If you are to get long term relief, then you must repair this weakness and prevent it happening again. You cannot achieve this with drug based medication that simply controls acid levels, which is why you only get temporary relief with this kind of medication.
So if conventional medication will not solve your problem, how can you possibly get how permanent relief? This is where you need to adopt an open mind to alternative, natural forms of treatment.
Natural treatments act in a totally different way to conventional remedies. They act by treating all the underlying factors that are causing diseases and conditions. Having identified what those factors are, you undertake a course of treatment that actually stimulates you body's powerful immune system into action to combat them, eliminate them and produce the cure.
Heartburn is one of those conditions that react well to this type of treatment. In most cases, there are several factors that combine to cause the weakness that allows acid reflux to occur and many are related to diet and lifestyle. So the first stage of treatment is to identify which specific factors are triggering your acid reflux.
Next you develop a program that involves making strategic changes to what you eat and how you live, in combination with a natural form of medication that will stimulate your immune system to target those factors and eliminate them.
When all the factors are eliminated you can expect a full recovery from your condition and permanent relief from your heartburn.
This might sound rather simplistic but it is not just theory. Rest assured that thousands of people have already discovered the means to achieve permanent relief from heartburn. Investigate further and you will find out for yourself that the secret of that permanent cure for reflux is simply a matter of finding the right guidance.
