Gerd, or Gastro-Esophageal- Reflux Disease is often caused by high blood pressure and hyperparathyroidism. According to reports, more than 65% that suffer from high blood pressure and hyperparathyroidism are prone to develop Gerd.
Luckily, there are a number of natural and holistic remedies you can use to remedy this ailment. One concerned reader recently put forward this question to our Expert Panel and here’s what Tanya Reid, a Certified Holistic Health Practitioner recommends:
Question: Recommendation for parathyroid and gerd
Tea with ginger can act as an acid buffer. Buddha’s Herbs Wings Tea has a soothing blend of herbs, including ginger to help. Or drinking a cup of chamomile tea can reduce inflammation in the stomach. The Buddha’s Herbs multivitamin and an omega-3 fatty acid supplement daily helps to decrease inflammation and to support a healthy metabolism.
In addition, calcium citrate with Vitamin D daily promotes healthy bone formation and this may be better taken with a glass of orange juice which creates an acidic environment that aids absorption of the calcium.
Why does Gerd happen?
GER D which basically stands for gastro-esophageal reflux is more commonly known as known as acid reflux or regurgitation. Although high blood pressure and hyperparathyroidism does play a role in aggravating Gerd, the main process that occurs is that contents of the stomach flow back up the sophagus which irritates the lining thus causing acid indigestion and heart burn.
Therefore, adding the teas and vitamins mentioned above may prove to be a very effective treatment and prevention for GERD.
