The homeopathic medicine of Acidity, reflux, or of any condition, start by looking for the cause. It’s a far better approach to look for the cause, rather than to treat the effects. It’s not always possible to see the cause of an ailment, but in this case, it’s quite simple.
Reflux is simply some of the contents of your stomach backing up the esophagus, towards your mouth. The sour taste is because your stomach is acid. Although your stomach must be acidic to digest the food, your body pH must be alkaline for you to stay alive.
Reflux often happens in people whose body pH is coming dangerously close to the acid side. Areas which contribute to an acidic pH body state are acidic foods, emotional stresses, and environmental factors. Acidic foods include processed foods and animal protein.
Alkalizing foods are fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts, and seeds – all the
plant-based foods. So by simply cutting back on your processed food and animal protein and increasing your plant-based food, you may be able to heal your reflux altogether.
Typical emotions which contribute to an acid body pH is continued anger, fear or any other strong, but unbalanced, emotion. Although it’s easy to say these areas need attention, it’s not always so easy to see the best way to achieve this.
Homeopathy is a complete and natural modality of health care which works by selecting the most appropriate remedy for you. This then stimulates your immune system, which is responsible for your healing. Homeopathy is perhaps one of the most thorough forms of natural healing to effectively address emotional imbalances.
Environment factors which contribute to an acidic body pH are the common use of phosphates in fertilizers. Phosphates make the plants look healthy, but are nutritionally incomplete. A wide variety of minerals are needed to support healthy soil and so plant – your food.
Putting all these issues together, we can arrive at a homeopathic remedy called Natrum phosphoricum 6x or 6c. Nat Phos has the reputation of being the best acute treatment for reflux. It does this by restoring balance to the high phosphorus levels in your body.
