Natural Indigestion Remedies for Acid Reflux Sufferers (1/10 Americans!)

September 20, 2012 LYT By:

Does your painful acid reflux and stash of antacids have you wishing that you had a natural indigestion remedy?  You’re not alone.  Americans spend over 3 billion dollars a year on over-the-counter antacids.  The good news is that there are natural acid reflux remedies that will have you throwing out your “plop-plop, fizz-fizz” Alka-Seltzer and painlessly enjoying your meals again.

TOSS OUT THE TUMS! ALKALINIZE YOUR DIGESTIVE SYSTEM – NATURALLY!

 

ACID REFLUX – A SYMPTOM IS A SIGN 

Like all symptoms, indigestion is a call for help.  It is your body’s way of signaling to you that your digestive tract is compromised and needs some relief, repair and rebalancing.  While antacids and pain-relief medications can hide the pain, the real call-to-action is to solve the problem with natural indigestion remedies.  

 

NATURAL INDIGESTION REMEDIES: Foods That Help Acid Reflux, and More

 

  • Increase living foods and food combine – Living foods supply the key enzymes we need to break down our meals, while food combining ensures quick digestion and keeps the digestive tract moving. 
  • Reduce processed foods – Processed foods are void of nutrients and place a big burden on our digestive tracts.
  • Eat smaller portions and take more time – American culture has us eating huge amounts and usually on the run.  Taking time to chew your food, and being mindful of smaller portions gives the body the necessary relief it needs to digest thoroughly.
  • Reduce over-the-counter medications – Unlike gentle, natural acid reflux remedies, meds like antacids, aspirin, and cold medications add toxic burden to our digestive system. They can prevent vitamin absorption and create an unnatural acidic environment that breeds disease.
  • Avoid inflammatory foods – Foods & beverages like alcohol, coffee, sugar, dairy, white breads and pastas are some of the worst culprits of inflammation and digestive imbalance.
  • Increase probiotics – A good quality probiotic will seed the gut with healthy bacteria that increases the body’s strength, immunity and balance – the body’s best, most natural indigestion remedy!
  • Relax – Diet will take you as far as your emotional health will allow.  How much you hold onto stress, fear, control, and anger will determine your body’s ability to relax, repair and create total health.

Acid reflux is a wake up call and a great opportunity to rebalance the body.  At LYT NYC, our experience tells us that one of the quickest ways to reboot is through colon hydrotherapyCleaning out the built-up toxicity in our guts is a foundation for total balance.  Add any of the the natural acid reflux remedies above to your colon hydrotherapy protocol and you’ll fall in love with a whole new level of health.

Back to School: Clear Your Head By Clearing Your Body

September 12, 2012 LYT By:
LYT

If going back to school has you enrolled in your health this season, then we’ve got your two-step syllabus to getting a 4.0 in “Healthy Brain Food 101!” School is officially in session and with a clear body leading to a clear head, your overall GPA has no place to go but up, up, up. Today’s lesson: including healthy brain food and colonics in your lifestyle can make going “back to school” a real cinch!

HEALTHY BRAIN FOOD: STEP 1 TO A CLEAR HEAD

The first step to a clear and sharp brain is to flood our cells with the life generating energy of fresh green juices and raw foods. These alkaline substances rehydrate the old waste that’s built up, especially following a summer of pool parties and vacations. Their abundance of electrolytes helps extract the sticky residue and put it in line for elimination, while their nutrients act as a natural energy-booster.

 

BENEFITS OF COLONICS: RESEARCH LINKS A CLEAN COLON TO A CLEAR HEAD

The next step is to more thoroughly cleanse the body using colon hydrotherapy. Are you aware of the many benefits of LYT’s colonics in NYC? Cleaning the colon is one of the most effective ways to clear and balance the brain. In fact, there is a neurological connection between the digestive tract and the brain that is linking mental imbalances to physical imbalances. This web of neurons around the digestive tract is so complex that scientists are calling it “the second brain.” Research is showing connections between ailments of the brain and symptoms of the body such as anxiety and depression in conjunction with irritable bowel syndrome and ulcers.

The health of our digestive tract directly affects the health of our brains and our moods. A clean and clear colon means a clean and clear head. Not to mention some of the additional benefits of colonics that will have you more than “Back to School” ready:

  • Improved Immunity
  • Clearer Skin
  • Improved Digestion
  • Reduced Allergies
  • Reduced Inflammation
  • Increased Energy
  • Improved Sleep

“Back to School” means getting “back on track.” It’s a great time to re-evaluate our lifestyle and begin using healthy brain food and the benefits of colonics to leave us New Yorkers feeling bright, clear and vibrant from the inside out.

Raw Food Results – Juice Fasting Correctly For Weight Loss

Juicing for weight loss yields rapid results in the short-term, but it may surprise you to know juice fasting combined with colonics will help you achieve your long-term weight loss and health goals. In addition to keeping the excess weight off, juicing will help you transition to a healthier, nutrient-rich diet and eliminate bad food cravings. 

 

Juicing For Weight Loss Works: Waste = Weight!

The key is waste = weight. Removing excess waste from your body results in weight loss. Juice fasting and raw foods are the best way to awaken and loosen waste, and colonics will help remove it from your body. Read more about raw foods and losing weight here.

 

Vegetable Juicing Recipes & Fasting Tips

 

    1. Transition Before A Weight Loss Juice Fast:

               

               * Alkalinize your diet by including fresh-pressed juices (on an empty stomach), raw salads before cooked food, and whole foods.

               * Reduce/eliminate your intake of acidic/mucus-forming foods such as red meat, dairy, processed starches, and alcohol. 

               *Get a pre-fast colonic for best fasting results. 

    2. During the Weight Loss Juice Fast:

 

               * Drink approximately 1 gallon of liquid per day during a fast: Composed of a 50/50 ratio of  vegetable juice and water. See the diagram below for the benefits of drinking a substantial amount of water!

               * Get Colonics!!

 

Vegetable Juicing Recipes For Rookies – Start With 12-16 Ounces

Use equal portions of each of these or use more carrots if you’re new to juicing. As your taste buds shift, you can increase the GREENS!

     * Carrot & Romaine Lettuce

     * Carrot & Celery

     * Carrot & Cucumber

     * Carrot, Beet, & Cucumber

     * Carrot & Fennel

     *** Add a 1- 2 inch chunk of ginger to any of these for some kick & to dissolve mucus!

     *** 1 lb carrots = approx. 8 oz juice

Vegetable Juicing Recipes For Veterans – Consider 24-32 Ounces

     * Romaine & Cucumber 

     * Romaine, Cucumber, & Spinach  

     * Celery, Spinach, Lemon, & Arugula 

     * Grapefruit & Spinach (or shot of Wheatgrass)

     *** Grapefruits are low in sugar, anti-inflammatory, and help dissolve mucus. Keep fruit juice to a minimum during a fast to avoid unmanageable detox symptoms. 

     *** Add a 1- 2 inch chunk of ginger to any of these for some kick!

Colonics Are Necessary When Juicing For Weight Loss

It is crucial to keep the bowels moving when juicing for weight loss. The alkaline juices will loosen more waste than your body is capable of eliminating on its own. The more waste you release with colonics, the more weight you will shed in the long-term! Read more about juice fasting and colonics in New York City to learn more.

Your gut is the "Captain Of The Ship"! KEEP IT HEALTHY!
