How To Stop Acid Reflux | How To Treat Acid Reflux (2018)

1 in 10 people get acid reflux almost
every day and if that includes you I’m gonna give you some great tips that
should really help, now let’s begin okay so first let me explain to you acid
reflux and heartburn but bear with me a a couple of seconds because I’ve thought of a really creative way to explain it to you so here’s my masterpiece
obviously it’s not to scale but you have to use your imagination a bit the glass
part is your oesophagus the green balloon is your stomach and the black tape is
your lowest sphincter now the lower sphincter is a muscular valve which lets
food in one way so food and liquid come down into your stomach one way through
this now here’s the fun bit the lower sphincter closes and prevents food from
the stomach and stomach acid from refluxing back into the oesophagus but if it
opens too far or doesn’t close tight enough then this stomach acid can reflux
back up like so, so this is what leads to acid reflux or Gastro-oesophageal
reflux disease otherwise known as GORD for short which is the more chronic
severe version of acid reflux and they both cause that burning sensation in the
chest which everyone calls heartburn so
heartburn is a symptom of acid reflux and GORD and I hope that helps clear
things up and one last thing the other symptoms of acid reflux include an acid
taste in your mouth wind, belching, bloating and possibly a
dry persistent cough now let’s move on to tips so remember the oesophageal
sphincter well there are ways to make this stronger and prevent acid reflux
smoking, drinking alcohol and being overweight all factors that can reduce
the sphincter strength so if any of these apply to you then consider
stopping smoking, reducing or stopping your alcohol intake entirely and getting
to a healthy weight these can help strengthen the oesophageal sphincter and make it close tighter to prevent the acid reflux and it’s symptoms some medication may also make your symptoms worse by either irritating the oesophagus
or relaxing the lower oesophageal sphincter now the most common
culprits are anti-inflammatory painkillers like ibuprofen and aspirin and also
other medication like diazepam, theophylline and calcium channel blockers
like nifedipine and by the way that wasn’t a complete list because we’ll be
here forever instead if you feel like a medication is
causing you symptoms or increasing your symptoms then speak to your pharmacist
they’ll check for you and advise you appropriately so let’s say your acid
reflux symptoms are worse at night when you’re lying down in your bed and that
makes sense because the acid is no longer fighting gravity to make its way
up your oesophagus you’re not lying down and it can easily
make its way up so the solution to this is to elevate the entire upper part of
the body so that doesn’t mean get a big pillow and put it behind your head
because that’s just gonna elevate your head and make no difference so what you
want to do is raise one end of the bed by about 10 to 20 centimeters so either
put something under the top two legs of your bed or under the mattress or even
use a wedge, so the chest and the head are above the waist and the acid isn’t
gonna travel up like I showed you before in addition to this going to bed with an
empty and dry stomach can also really help so in the last three hours of
going to bed make sure you don’t eat anything and in the last two hours of
going to bed make sure you don’t drink anything with foods and drinks the best
advice is to eat smaller more frequent meals peppermint, tomato, chocolate and
caffeine are all suspected of making acid reflux worse now for more
information on this i’ve left a really useful link in the description below to
an acid reflux diet sheet so feel free to check out also if you like to wear
tight clothes around the waist or a belt it’s gonna push up that acid and cause
the acid reflux symptoms and nobody wants that so instead try wear something loose for treatment of acid reflux I’d always
recommend patients to speak to their pharmacist first they can then ask you
specific questions to determine whether they can give you treatment
over-the-counter or to refer you on to your GP and in terms of treatments
there’s loads of options that pharmacist can recommend from antacids, alginates
and acid suppression tablets but this will be determined on an individual
patient basis lastly acid reflux isn’t usually serious
unless you have red flags and that means you need to see a GP urgently for
treatment and investigation now there’s quite a lot of red flags so I’ve left
them in the description below and I would strongly advise everyone to read
them and that’s it you’re now an acid reflux Pro I hope you find my tips
useful and if you know anyone who’d benefit from my video please help

  2. I really don’t know what I have sometimes if the food comes up far enough I can just make it go up into my mouth and then I spit it out. I feel best on an empty stomach. I’m not overweight, don’t smoke, don’t drink alcohol, and I don’t wear tight clothes. It has to be with my diet. I shouldn’t have been eating junk food. :/

  3. Your the first person that mentioned wind. I have had that feeling on and off. Trying to explain that to someone they just look at you weird. It feels like I'm breathing in ice cold air in my throat. I hate the feeling! Your video was so self explanatory. Although acid reflux is actually from have low stomach acid which makes digesting and breaking down the food hard to do. I have always had low stomach acid and for the past couple years I have been dealing with acid reflux and heartburn. Great video!

  21. I’m not sure what to do?!
    I have had heartburn for around a year, I found cutting out gluten and wheat helped because I found that that caused it. I found some other foods that triggered it as well so I’m trying not to eat them. I was rarely getting it then. About a month ago I had a cold and everything I ate it felt like it was stuck at the bottom of my throat and in my chest but when my cold got better it went away. I could still breathe and eat and drink but it was really uncomfortable. I was going to go to the doctors if it didn’t get better but it did so I didn’t bother. But I don’t know if I should still go, even though I’ve not been getting that feeling. These past few days the middle of my chest feels like I’m getting heartburn but it doesn’t really hurt it’s just an uncomfortable feeling. I don’t know if I should get it checked out at the doctors. Anyone have any insight if I should go or not? Really unsure but I don’t know if they would do anything.

  24. Hello Abraham,
    Right now I'm having some breathing issues, mainly inside while I'm breathing as I feel winded. I feel forced to take deep breaths every 5 – 10 minutes for every time I'm breathing, and I've been burping little constantly but I'm not sure if I'm burping up the air from inside when I feel winded. Could this be an issue of acid reflux? I feel like I've had it all week this week so I need to know. Thanks
