Consume Jicama And Whole Milk To Treat Stomach Acid?
morning. r n r nhallo doctor. r n r nI am currently having acid reflux, I have visited the doctor 5 times. Now at this doctor I was told to eat a lot of jicama, drink lots of water and drink Bear’s milk. because I’m already fat so I can’t have rice, etc. with high carbon-protein content. But I still eat brown rice porridge mixed with white rice, because the doctor previously advised me to eat porridge. r n r n Which is my question : r n r n1. Is it permissible and possible that only consuming a lot of jicama, lots of water and lots of bear milk is also no problem? Is there a good rule to consume it in 1 day? R n r n2. Right now I also feel that jicama really helps my stomach acid, when it is rising high even though I consume it it immediately relieves stomach acid which was hot in the chest and stomach, suddenly becomes cold and very comfortable. But sometimes I feel itchy in my stomach. the bacteria in my stomach is a sign that I will die or is it a sign that the wound in the stomach will heal?. I also feel itching when I eat apples, etc. which usually help stomach acid. r n r nThank you
Hello, Nurul Awwaliyah Rahmah, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Acid reflux disease (GERD) is a disease where stomach acid backs up into the esophagus, which causes heartburn, chest, throat pain and a burning sensation. This can be caused by weakness of the muscles between the stomach and esophagus which function to prevent food from returning to the esophagus, and can be exacerbated by increased production of stomach acid and too high pressure in the stomach. To treat it, apart from medication from a doctor, lifestyle changes are also very necessary to reduce severity and prevent worsening, namely by:
1. Avoid foods that are high in acid, such as chocolate, fatty foods, spicy foods, acidic foods, alcohol, coffee, cigarettes
2. Losing weight (for example by reducing carbohydrate consumption, eating high-fiber foods, exercising) can reduce pressure in the stomach
3. Wear clothes that are not too tight
4. Allow at least 2 hours between eating and lying down
5. Eat little but often
6. Avoid stress
7. Drink plenty of water
Regarding your question, there is no scientific evidence regarding the consumption and portion of jicama and milk in treating stomach acid. However, according to the content in jicama, it does have a lot of fiber and prebiotics that support digestive health and jicama is also alkaline (alkaline) which can neutralize stomach acid. Your question about itching in the stomach, if you mean itching on the skin of the stomach, the causes can be various, for example allergies, prickly heat, or dermatitis (inflammation of the skin). To find out the cause of the itching (especially if there are redness, swelling, and spots), check with your doctor.
If you feel better by consuming jicama, then you can continue because jicama does have many benefits for the body. However, if you are allergic (signs: itching all over, vomiting, swelling, tightness), then stop consuming it immediately. We recommend that you keep ensuring adequate daily nutrition by eating other nutritious foods. Treatment of stomach acid disease does need a long process, so it takes patience and patience for patients in managing their lifestyle and treatment.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
