Acid Reflux

                                           

 ACIDITY OR ACID RE FLUX

In a simple language, when the gate (sphincters’) of the entrance of food from esophagus to stomach does not closed and food during digestion (process when Hcl mixed with food) reflux out of the gate is called acid re flux. Long duration of same problem may lead to GERD.

One common cause of acid reflux disease is a stomach abnormality called a hiatal hernia. Normally, the diaphragm helps keep acid in our stomach. But if you have a hiatal hernia, acid can move up into your esophagus and cause symptoms of acid reflux disease.

 These are other common risk factors for acid reflux disease:

  • Eating large meals or lying down right after a meal
  • Being overweight or obese
  • Eating a heavy meal and lying on your back or bending over at the waist
  • Snacking close to bedtime
  • Eating certain foods, such as citrus, tomato, chocolate, mint, garlic, onions, or spicy or fatty foods
  • Drinking certain beverages, such as alcohol, carbonated drinks, coffee, or tea
  • Smoking
  • Being pregnant
  • Taking aspirin, ibuprofen, certain muscle relaxers, or blood pressure medications

One of the most effective ways to treat acid re flux disease is to avoid the foods and beverages that trigger symptoms. Here are other steps you can take:

  • Eat smaller meals more frequently throughout the day and modify the types of foods you are eating.
  • Quit smoking.
  • Put blocks under the head of your bed to raise it at least 4 inches to 6 inches.
  • Eat at least 2 to 3 hours before lying down.
  • Try sleeping in a chair for daytime naps.
  • Don't wear tight clothes or tight belts.
  • If you're overweight or obese, take steps to lose weight with exercise and diet changes.
  • Also, ask your doctor whether any medication could be triggering your heartburn or other symptoms of acid reflux disease.                                                                                                                                                                                              GREEN INDIA HEALTHCARE

A Corona virus infects body by entering healthy cells. There, the invader makes copies of itself and multiplies throughout body. Plant-food-derived antioxidants and active principles such as flavonoids, hydroxycinnamates (ferulic acid, chlorogenic acids, vanillin etc.),  β -carotene and other carotenoids, vitamin E, vitamin C, or rosemary, sage, chamomile tea and numerous extracts are increasingly proposed as important dietary antioxidant factors. In this endeavor, all analyses involve oxidative DNA damage for characterizing the potential antioxidant actions.                                                                                     Person with weak immune system and with the ignorance in basic awareness( mask, sanitizer, frequent hand wash, social distancing)can easily effected with the disease.

GREEN INDIA HEALTHCARE Corona virus A Virus Isn’t Alive I’ve long been fascinated by the utter simplicity of a virus, compared to the force it can exert on a human body, courtesy of the immune response. Biologists also don’t consider a virus to be alive because of what it  can’t  do: it doesn’t metabolize, doesn’t respond to stimuli, and can’t reproduce unaided. A virus requires a live host to make more of itself, which it can do quite effectively before our immune systems even realize it’s there. Symptoms - Fever, cough, cold, respiratory disorders Helpful ways to strengthen your immune system and fight off disease Don’t smoke Do regular exercise and yoga(suryanamaskar(sun salutation) and chandranamaskar(moon salutations) Get adequate sleep Take steps: washing your hands frequently and avoid touching surfaces Foods like garlic,  ginger, fruits and vegetable contain innumerable phytonutrients that can boost our immune system and even modulate DNA repair.
