7 Foods to Avoid in Acid Reflux



What acid reflux food should I avoid? This is a question most gastroesophageal reflux disease sufferers struggle upon. Promoting healthy nutrition that is based on avoiding certain foods while increasing the intake of others has the potential to confer significant long-term health benefits among acid reflux sufferers. Lifestyle and dietary alterations are considered to be an integral and inseparable part of any long-term holistic GERD treatment.

The foods we consume play an important role when it comes to keeping our body's delicate natural inner balance. Since certain foods and dietary habits have been found to, directly and indirectly, promote the aggravation of acid reflux, avoiding those foods and adopting specific dietary habits for optimal digestion while suffering from acid reflux could have a tremendously positive effect on your existing medical condition. The following are examples of these types of foods:

1. Coffee

Coffee and other caffeine-containing beverages lead to increased acidity, so avoid large amounts of coffee. Try to limit your daily coffee consumption to two cups or less. It possible, split your coffee cup into two half cups, and reduce coffee drinking before bedtime.

2.Alcohol

 Alcohol can irritate the stomach and relax the LES muscle, leading to increased acidity and reflux.

3. High-fat foods

 High-fat foods are among the biggest culprits behind GERD symptoms. They take longer to digest and not easily eliminated out of body, thus increasing the chances acid will splash up into your esophagus. The only exceptions are omega-3 fatty acids from fish and fish oil, which are in fact powerful anti-inflammatory agents.

4. Chocolate

Chocolate contains a great deal of caffeine and fat. This may increase acidity and worsen digestion and hence should be avoided. If you are a devoted chocolate enthusiast, go for dark, organic varieties, and eat no more then two to three tiny squares two to three times per week.

5. Milk and milk based products

Milk and milk-based products that contain a big proportion of calcium should also be avoided before bedtime.

6. Peppermint

 Peppermint, spearmint and other mints can worsen acid reflux symptoms. Avoid foods that contain strong mints, including mint-based herbal teas.

7. Acidic foods

Acidic foods (such as oranges and tomatoes) and cruciferous vegetables (onions, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, spinach, brussels sprouts) promote the opening of the oesophagal sphincter, thus increasing acid reflux.

So what acid reflux food should you avoid? With these dietary changes and a healthy motivation to alter your lifestyle, you can be on your way to overcoming gastroesophageal reflux disease and improving the quality of your life and well-being.

Whatever your medical condition is, when you finally decide to improve your quality of life, you can literally choose to cure GERD and prevent its recurrence, by adopting the holistic approach. You will have the power to make it happen

This article is based on the book, "Heartburn No More" by Jeff Martin. Jeff is an author, researcher, nutritionist and health consultant who dedicated his life to creating the ultimate acid reflux solution guaranteed to permanently reverse the root cause of heartburn and acid reflux and naturally and dramatically improve the overall quality of your life, without the use prescription medication and without any surgical procedures.

10 Things You Need to Know about Peripheral Neuropathy



From the desk of contributor Dr. Randall C. Labrum, Neuropathy Expert and Former Neuropathy Sufferer:

Numbness. Prickling. Tingling. Burning. Debilitating pain in the feet, toes, and lower legs. Or in the hands, fingers and lower arms. Perhaps even in both locations. These are the most common symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy, a vexing disorder brought on by damage to the peripheral nervous system which today affects tens of millions of Americans, and many more millions of people around the globe.

Here are 10 things you absolutely need to know about Peripheral Neuropathy.

1) The number of peripheral neuropathy sufferers just cited only reflects the tip of the iceberg.

 Indeed, in years to come peripheral neuropathy, which is right now increasing in prevalence at a mind-blowing rate, has the potential to become one of the most widespread scourges humanity has yet known.

2) Why be alarmed? 

Because peripheral neuropathy strikes individuals without pity. It strikes for a vast variety of reasons, both exotic and distressingly common-place (diabetes, aging, and high-blood pressure, for example). And if you develop neuropathy and only put your trust in contemporary medicine, you'll be rather unapologetically told that neuropathy is virtually without cure or treatment.

3) As a result, neuropathy sufferers are usually desperate. 

Nothing has worked for them. The painkilling medicines generally suggested as the only real course of action by most doctors cause awful side effects. They are prescribed with the caveat that there is nothing else we can do. Indeed, in all my years of experience I have yet to meet a neuropathy patient who was completely satisfied with their progress or how the doctor was handling their case.

4) Virtually all neuropathy patients feel like orphans. 

As though they have nobody to turn to, nobody who truly knows how to help them, and nowhere to go with their problem. Meanwhile, the painful and frustrating symptoms continue to intensify and the feelings of being abandoned and left alone with no help grow more acute. This unpleasant situation often contributes to depression and despondency, with the neuropathy sufferer finally just giving up and doing nothing more to help his or her problem. Suffering for the remainder of their days, with an almost complete abandonment of a desired lifestyle, seems to be the only possible outcome. This is, of course, no way to live.

5) Fortunately, as a friend and neuropathy treatment coach, my message to these neuropathy sufferers is simply this: Be of good cheer! There is a solution. Click here to jump to it now [Link].

As a previous neuropathy patient myself, I have recently published a simple, proven, step-by-step neuropathy treatment program based on my successes in resolving the peripheral neuropathy condition. In my own case, my perplexing and painful neuropathy symptoms are totally gone and my life is back on track again.

6) Many, if not most of my patients have had the same experience with my neuropathy program.

 It is at their request that I am making my program widely available to everyone, with the intent of helping as many of the frustrated victims of the emerging neuropathy epidemic as possible. Those who have followed the program as outlined have, without exception, achieved a measurable amount of satisfaction and improvement.

The amount of this correction and improvement is of course different in each individual case, and depends on obvious variables such as patient compliance and motivation, and on clinical factors such as general health and the severity and complexity of the underlying causes.

7) Its all about changing the environment.

 It is critically important for every neuropathy sufferer to understand that all cases of neuropathy will do better if the damaged peripheral sensory nerves in the lower legs, feet, and hands, and the environment in which they are found, can be made healthier, less toxic, and more whole. These goals are precisely what my neuropathy program [Link] is designed to help the neuropathy sufferer accomplish.

Indeed, my program is designed to help the neuropathy sufferer finally gain the upper hand in the fight against this devastating epidemic.

8) What researchers have found will shock you

Medical schools, researchers, and neuropathy organizations estimate that between 20-30 million cases of peripheral neuropathy exist within the borders of the United States, with millions more being diagnosed each year.

Already, a full 8% of the millions of Medicare patients have peripheral neuropathy as a secondary diagnosis in their doctor provided diagnostic record. And these figures do not even speculate about the untold number of undiagnosed cases (peripheral neuropathy is still largely under the radar of many physicians and the media in general), or the millions of new developing cases whose symptoms are just beginning to manifest themselves, nor do they take into account the additional millions upon millions of peripheral neuropathy patients who live in other countries around the world.

9) By way of comparison with other so-called health epidemics, there are 400,000 people in the US with Multiple Sclerosis, 5,000,000 Americans suffer from Alzheimer's, and roughly 250,000 people in the US will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. As already mentioned, peripheral neuropathy is, right now, afflicting at least 20 to 30 million Americans. Even if you do not presently have peripheral neuropathy, chances are very high that at some point down the road it will affect your life either directly or indirectly.

10) Share this program with your near and dear one.

If you or someone near and dear to you is currently a neuropathy sufferer, you truly owe it to yourself to explore the vital information and proven recommendations I have prepared for you in my neuropathy program. Detailed in my program you will find clear answers to perplexing questions about what exactly Peripheral Neuropathy is; why you or someone you care for has it, or why you may or may not expect to be afflicted with it in the future; and what exactly can be done to both prevent it and treat it.

My program is presented in six simple steps which anyone can easily do. Each step is explained in plain English and illustrated in clear, step-by-step detail. By employing these steps the neuropathy sufferer will enhance the health of their peripheral sensory nerves and the surrounding environment, thereby reducing the pain, numbness, tingling, and other symptoms characteristic of the condition. Measurable and usually dramatic improvement is reasonable to expect in just a short time upon following my program.

Please do not fail yourself with prejudice, doubt, indecision or lack of action.

Recovery, healing and prevention are waiting for you, but you alone must take the responsibility and fulfill the simple, easy to learn steps which lead to dramatic improvement of this frustrating condition.

Secret common ingredient in foods that’s adding fat to body



Do you remember the big stink in the U.S. a few years back surrounding McDonald’s and their food, most notably French fries?

It was the big trans-fat scare! That’s right, we were being poisoned by the evil clown with deadly fat and something had to be done! Yeah, because we’re not adults or anything…

So the government stepped in and the burger giant was forced to change their frying oil. On the surface of it, it’s nice of good old Uncle Sam to take care of us right? To watch out for us, the ignorant masses, and make sure that when we’re shoving super-sized fries into our feed holes that they’re not entirely unhealthy!

But, does it really solved our problem and concern?

An ingredient found in almost all food is steadily adding fat

Okay… but do you know that despite the choice you make to visit Mickey Dee’s, there is in fact something found in virtually every can, box or bag of food in the grocery aisle that’s incredibly addictive, almost immediately turns to fat when you eat it and is one of the leading causes of most of the ailments we suffer today? 

So what is this killer, which is not only ignored by the government but actually supported by it?SUGAR

That’s right, processed sugar in its many forms is one of the most used ingredients in all processed and packaged foods. That includes regular white sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, maltodextrin and a host of others. 

Sugar found in every food is a silent cause of weight loss.

Want proof? Try this experiment the next time you go shopping. Walk down the aisles and examine the stuff you normally buy. Including stuff you wouldn’t even think they’d put sugar in – soup, salad dressing, instant potatoes, juice, frozen foods and even baby foods… Now, if you read the list of ingredients you’ll find some of the sugars I mentioned above. 

Keep in mind that this list of ingredients is organized from the highest concentration to the lowest. So if some kind of sugar is listed in the first three ingredients – and it’s often #1 or #2 – then you’re eating a whole lot of it. 

Sugar is a killer and, while okay in small quantities, is extremely unhealthy, fattening and addictive. That’s right – thousands of independent clinical studies have shown that sugar is more addictive than cocaine and even heroine… …and it’s in virtually everything we eat!

So is it any wonder why you might find it hard to drop the poundage? 
Here’s something else to ponder before we say goodbye. There’s actually a list of vegetables that are routinely served in restaurants and found in the produce section of the grocery store that is generally thought to be healthy… but are actually very bad for you and inhibit your ability to drop weight!

Is there any solution?

Health, fitness and weight loss are complex issues and we’ve been fed a lot of myths over the years. That’s why I’ve made it my goal in life to share the truth about foods, exercise and weight loss that we have been denied for so long!

If you’re looking to lose weight, have ever struggled with your weight or are just sick and tired of paying for the next big fitness craze, diet or gizmo that never seems to work, then I’d like to invite you to learn more about the foods you eat and the way your body works.

 Click this link now and watch my presentation where I’ll reveal some of the biggest weight loss myths and prove to you through hard science why they don’t work and how we’ve all been bilked for billions!

Weight Loss? Common food you should never cut from your diet!



Ever since the 1970’s when folks like Jim Fix with his jogging book and of course fitness icon Richard Simmons began to get the world onto the fitness band wagon, a lot of information has come through our TV’s about how to lose weight and get healthy.

Unfortunately, much of it is inaccurate, misunderstood or even dangerous over time. The weight loss industry generates something over $70 billion in the U.S. alone… it’s big business and these companies and personalities know how to tap into our psyches and tickle those nerves that make us want to try their pills, foods, workouts and vibrating belts that melt the fat while you veg out in front of the tube. 

How food for weight loss has always been misunderstood

Food has always been one of these areas that’s capitalized on the last 40+ years of America’s and other nations’ weight loss craze. First, it was reduced fat and fat-free! Sounds great, right? Yeah, except that when they take the fat out of your favourite cookies, they simply replace it with more sugar… hmm, doesn’t sound so great, does it? In the early 2000’s, if you recall, carbs became fitness public enemy #1. 

All of a sudden, people who a year before barely even knew what carbohydrates were began to go on no carb diets. Then it was gluten. Again, before 2010 or so, most folks never even heard of this thing… and now, it seems like every food has a gluten-free substitute and half of all living humans are allergic to it. Weird, right? 

To salt it or not to salt it?

But you know what one of the most attacked food items has always been, even before the 70’s – salt! Yes, good old sodium chloride is the arbiter of all that’s evil in the world. Salt raises your cholesterol… oh, no that’s actually not true… salt is a key ingredient in weight gain… oh, that’s false too… The truth is, in fact, that salt is absolutely vital to your body’s health. It’s needed in the biochemistry of your cells. 

Yet even more obvious is that when you cut salt out of your diet, you actually inhibit your body’s ability to digest food! And of course, that means putting on more weight and also limiting the number of nutrients you can absorb. Salt helps your body balance and optimize the PH level in your stomach. 

In other words, it helps to make sure that your stomach acid is strong enough to break down the food you eat so that the nutrients in it can more effectively be absorbed as it passes through your digestive tract. Salt is actually one incredibly important element in any good weight loss program. 

Different way of looking at health, fitness and weight loss

Like many people, I thought differently until running into a Korean medical student in Afghanistan who opened my eyes to a whole new – yet ironically ancient – way of looking at health, fitness and weight loss. He showed me the science behind what eastern cultures have known for millennia.

If you’re looking to lose weight, or you’ve ever been frustrated by your lack of progress… some of the latest science may shock you as to why. There are myths about weight loss that we’ve been fed for far too long and yet the scientifically proven and tested truth has simply been lying in the grass waiting to be uncovered. 

Is there any hope?

Why Conventional Sciatica Treatments Often Don’t Work…And Could Even Make Your Pain Worse



Chronic sciatica can be a frustrating condition to cure. It’s common for people to try multiple types of treatment – often spending a lot of money in the process – without noticeable results.

But here’s the good news. Sciatica can be extremely painful and even debilitating, but it’s very rare that the sciatic nerve is permanently damaged.

This means that even if you’ve been dealing with sciatic pain for years, there is a high chance that you can completely recover and live a pain-free life.

Not only that, but many people can recover from sciatica much faster than you could ever imagine – sometimes in as little as seven days – with the right treatment program.

The key is to find a treatment that addresses the underlying cause of your pain.

Why Conventional Sciatica Treatments Often Fail

If you visit a doctor about your sciatica, he or she is likely to prescribe pain-killing medication. This can be useful as a short-term fix and may also reduce inflammation.

The problem is that medication doesn’t address the underlying cause of sciatica. If you have a compressed or irritated nerve, drugs often just hide the problem without resolving what’s really causing your pain.

Many pain-killers – especially non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs – are also not suitable for long-term use. They can cause stomach pain, bloating, diarrhea and other nasty problems.

The worst part? If something you are doing is causing sciatica…such as putting excessive load on the spine during certain movements…then masking the pain with drugs could cause you to keep repeating the action and make your pain worse.

This is a big problem with the modern approach of pain management. It’s also why many people suffer for years with sciatic pain even though they are receiving traditional medical treatments.

Can Chiropractors Eliminate Sciatic Pain?

Another common treatment for sciatica is chiropractic manipulation. There is some low-quality evidence that this can provide relief for short-term sciatica…but there is little or no evidence that it can work for chronic sciatic pain.

There have also been reports that sciatic manipulation can cause a condition called cauda equina syndrome – a serious problem that can lead to loss of function in regions of the lower back. It can even result in sexual dysfunction or loss of bladder control.

Considering there isn’t much evidence to suggest that chiropractic manipulations can reduce sciatic pain, it’s hard to recommend it as a treatment when it’s potentially linked to more serious problems such as cauda equina.

What Are Some Effective Treatments for Sciatica?

If conventional treatments may not reduce your sciatic pain – or can even make the problem worse - what can you use instead?

There are a number of alternative treatments available. These include home remedies, tailored exercise programs, sleep therapy and many more. Alternative treatments have helped thousands of people overcome their sciatic pain without expensive or dangerous therapies.

Breakthrough Study Reveals Cure for Snoring



New clinical research suggests a natural cure for snoring does exist A recent study published by Brazilian doctors in the journal CHEST shows that practising simple tongue and mouth exercises to treat snoring produce near-miraculous results!

What doctor has to say

US doctors have backed the research. Barbara Phillips, Medical Director of the Sleep Laboratory at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine explains that “’this study demonstrates a promising, noninvasive treatment for large populations suffering from snoring, the snorers and their bed partners, that are largely omitted from research and treatment”.

During the last few years, sleep specialists, researchers and ear-nose and throat doctors in the U.S. have been experimenting with the effectiveness of exercises in tightening and toning the throat muscles as a potential treatment for snoring. 

Their findings concludes that...

Their findings conclude that exercising those weaker muscles that are directly responsible for the problem, can reduce snoring intensity by 60 percent and frequency by 39 percent. This is an exciting discovery especially since any alternative available today, such as over-the-counter treatments, have not shown to be as promising. “While there is no shortage of snoring related treatments, such as mouthpieces, special pillows, nasal strips and sprays, most of them have not been proven to work in clinical trials,” states the MayoClinic. 

On the other hand, according to various clinical studies testing the effectiveness of mouth and tongue exercises, the results are definitive: the tongue and mouth exercises have “significantly reduced snoring in our study group,” says Dr. Geraldo Lorenzi-Filho, the study author in the CHEST press release. Unlike the various anti-snoring contraptions on the market, exercising the tongue, mouth, throat, and jaw focuses on the root cause of snoring and provides a more effective, non-invasive and permanent solution.

Do you know the cause of snoring

Snoring is caused by the vibration of weak muscles in the face. In a healthy subject, the facial muscles are firm and do not vibrate. In snorers, however, as air travels through the upper airways the weak muscles begin to vibrate and produce the snoring sound. 

By exercising those slackened throat, tongue, jaw and mouth muscles, just as doing pushups or situps in the gym, these muscles strengthen and realign, returning to their former youthful structure and condition. 

Barbara A. Phillips, MD, says she highly recommends trying these simple exercises. “This study adds to the evidence that people can improve their own health with simple behavioural changes that they can do on their own,” she says. “Frankly, this will change the advice that I give to my patients who snore.” And that’s a lot of people.

Snoring: An Epidemic 

According to the National Sleep Foundation, snoring affects approximately 90 million American across both genders, with 37 million suffering from the problem on a regular basis. As people age, snoring can become a more serious problem with real health consequences. 

What may seem at first like a harmless inconvenience, it is important to treat the problem before it escalates into a more serious condition such as sleep apnoea, a disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts throughout the night. Sleep apnea is linked to poor concentration, fatigue, memory impairment, hypertension, diabetes, and, potentially heart attacks during the night.

Snoring Exercises Go Viral 

Following the latest finding, this innovative technique to solving the age-old snoring problem has quickly resonated with long-time snorers and has quickly gone viral and featured on many of the world’s top publications such as The New York Times, Fox News, Prevention.com, Men’s Journal, and the Telegraph.

Sciatica SOS Review: Your Guide To Eliminating Sciatica Pain In 7 Days Or Less – Guaranteed!



If you’ve spent time researching sciatica cures, you’ve probably already heard about Sciatica SOS™ – a treatment program that guarantees to eliminate pain in just 7 days.

But what’s included in the program? And can it really resolve your pain that quickly?

I spent some time researching Sciatica SOS™ to find out the truth. Here’s what I found.

Overview of Sciatica SOS™

Sciatica SOS™ is a program created by Glen Johnson – a former sciatica sufferer whose pain became so bad he couldn’t even do the grocery shopping…he had to rely on his wife to do all the work.

After years of struggling with pain that was becoming increasingly worse – and trying every conventional treatment, such as pain medication and regular visits to a chiropractor – Glen realized it was time to try something new.

That’s when he was introduced to a different way of treating sciatica by a family friend. The treatment, originally developed in Ancient Nepal, gave Glen almost instant pain relief. And within five days, his sciatica pain had disappeared completely.

In Sciatica SOS™, Glen reveals the exect treatment program so you can follow along and achieve similar results.

What’s Included in Sciatica SOS™?



The course starts with a useful section explaining the most common causes of sciatica. It also helps you identify the underlying reason for YOUR pain.

This is essential because there are many potential causes of sciatica, and they need to be treated differently (this is also a big reason why Googling generic treatments doesn’t work and will likely make your sciatica worse).

Once you’ve completed this section, the real meat of the program begins. Glen guides you through each of the following types of treatment, and tells you exactly which to use depending on the underlying cause you discovered earlier:

· Home remedies (page 26) – seven of the most powerful remedies you can make at home to eliminate sciatic pain.

· Exercise program (page 29) – specific exercises to resolve any underlying cause of sciatica.

· Sleep therapy (page 62) – an essential, but often overlooked, component in treating sciatica.

· Diet (page 64) – simple, easy alterations you can make to your diet to quickly resolve pain and prevent sciatica from returning.

For most people with sciatica, these four treatments will be enough to resolve pain quickly. But for those who need a little extra help, there are also advanced sections about “Trigger Point Therapy” and how to “Reorganize Your Skeletal System.”

Does it Work?

At this stage, you’re probably thinking that the program sounds powerful – but can it really work?

I don’t blame you for being skeptical. I was too. But that’s when I started to read some of the success stories with the program – and the transformations are incredible.

Here’s an example from Jane Eddington, Minnesota:

“Thank you so much for this Glen! After 3 months struggling to get a good night’s sleep due to the pain, I was searching online to see if there was something out there that could help as pain killers and NSAIDs just weren’t cutting it.

When I ran across your site my first thought was it sounded too good to be true, but gave it a try anyway seeing that you had a money back guarantee in place.

I could hardly believe it; literally the next day the pain was gone and I was able to get a proper night’s sleep. You’re a life saver.”

And another, from Michael Pierce, Ireland:

“I can’t thank you enough Glenn!

I was a sciatica sufferer for years and had wasted thousands of dollars on all kinds of therapies and medications, from epidural injections to chiropractic treatments. I’d get temporary relief but after a few days the pain would be back.

It had gotten to the point where tying my own shoe laces had become a pain-staking 10 minute task.

A friend of mine sent me a link to Sciatica SOS on Facebook and barely 5 days later the pain was gone completely and I have my mobility back. One month later I am still completely pain-free. This should be a must to anyone with sciatica.”

These are just a few of the success stories – there are many at the Sciatica SOS™ website. Click here to check them out.

Conclusion – Is Sciatica SOS™ worth buying?

Sciatica can make even basic tasks such as sleeping or unloading groceries painful. It’s also a condition that the medical profession often doesn’t take seriously – which can be incredibly frustrating for those affected by it.

Glen understands these frustrations, and has designed Sciatica SOS™ to provide rapid pain relief without dangerous medicine, expensive treatments or hours of therapy.

The program also doesn’t rely on covering up pain or temporarily reducing it. Instead, the four treatment sections are designed to eliminate sciatica permanently.

My opinion? This is an excellent program that is a bargain at this price.

In fact, if you’re suffering with sciatica pain, I recommend purchasing Sciatica SOS™ today and trying the program immediately. If it works– great! And if it doesn’t, Glen offers a full money-back guarantee for 60-days, so you have nothing to lose. So don’t delay another minute to benefit from this amazing offer!
