Esophagus Health for acid reflux

Aloe Vera works in more than one way, “First it goes to work by reducing your stomach acid levels so you don’t experience that burning and up all night sensation because of its soothing coating that is immediately applied to your GI tract. The second way is Aloe Vera actually helps heal the skin cells that have been burned by excess stomach acid, acid so strong that it can melt an aluminum spoon in just minutes. The combination of balancing stomach acidity and healing from the inside out is unique to Aloe Vera, no prescription or pill can replicate this effect. If that was not enough to impress you, Aloe Vera is also great for your liver and everyone should know a healthy liver is vital for weight loss. "

 

 

 

Strengthen the Esophagus

The esophagus is the tube that extends from the throat to the stomach. The esophagus is lined with rings of muscles called sphincters at the top and bottom of its length. When the esophagus is weak, the top does not close properly and all the bad disgusting smell from the stomach is release back into the mouth.

 

The strength and function of these sphincters in the top of the tube near the throat allow you to swallow without choking on your food, or aspirating or inhaling food from the upper throat into the trachea or windpipe. Individuals diagnosed with conditions like dysphagia, or difficulty swallowing, may benefit from esophagus-strengthening exercises.

 

Chin Dips

Practice chin dips to exercise the esophagus and sphincter at the top of the throat and to facilitate swallowing. For example, when drinking or eating small amounts of fluid or food, dip the chin slightly toward the chest while swallowing. This facilitates positioning of the epiglottis, and narrows the entrance to the throat by the trachea or windpipe

 

Swallowing Exercise with Held Breath

You can practice swallowing exercises while holding your breath in order to strengthen your throat and sphincter muscles and help prevent choking while drinking and eating. For example, place a small amount of fluid in your mouth and keep it there while holding your breath. Concentrate for a moment or two and then swallow, continuing to hold your breath while you swallow.

 

Shaker Swallowing Rehabilitation Exercise

Lay flat on your back, lift only your head about 4 inches wihtou lifting shoulders and look at your toes - hold this for 1 minute, rest for 1 minute and then repeat two more times).

 

Facctors that weaken the Esophagus

The lower esophageal muscle can be weakened by factors other than food. The following recommendations may be helpful in reducing symptoms:

1. Stop using tobacco in all forms. Nicotine weakens the lower esophageal muscle.
2. Avoid chewing gum and hard candy. They increase the amount of swallowed air which, in turn, leads to belching and reflux.
3. Do not lie down immediately after eating. Avoid late evening snacks.
4. Avoid tight clothing and bending over after eating.
5. Eat small, frequent portions of food and snack if needed.
6. Lose weight if overweight. Obesity leads to increased reflux.
7. Elevate the head of the bed six to eight inches to prevent reflux when sleeping. Extra pillows, by themselves, are not very helpful.
8. The following foods aggravate acid reflux, and should be avoided:
* fatty or fried foods
* peppermint and spearmint
* whole milk
* oils
* chocolate
* creamed foods or soups
* most fast foods
9. The following foods irritate an inflamed lower esophagus and may need to be limited or avoided:
* citrus fruits and juices (grapefruit, orange, pineapple, tomato)
* coffee (regular and decaffeinated)
* caffeinated soft drinks
* tea
* other caffeinated beverages
10. Spicy or acidic foods may not be tolerated by some individuals.
