Fasting Tips For Heartburn Sufferers?
Tonight, I’m a 26-year-old male. I have an ulcer or gerd disease, well, for fasting tips how good? So, if I don’t eat all day, my body feels weak, I have a headache, and I feel like I’m going to faint. For drinks such as bearbrand milk or pocari sweat drinks at dawn, can it be tried? thank you
Hello Dirga, thank you for using HealthReplies.com.
Gastritis is a disease of the stomach that occurs due to inflammation of the stomach wall, whereas gastric acid disease or Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is a condition characterized by pain in the pit of the stomach or a burning sensation in the chest due to the rise of stomach acid into the esophagus.
Normally, the symptoms of this disease can be prevented by regulating a good diet, by not leaving the stomach empty. However, in the fasting month, to carry out worship there are some things that are suggested, including:
Don't skip the meal and postpone breaking the fast. Often due to several things, the patient oversteps the suhoor due to overslept, forgetfulness, or because he feels not required. Skipping the meal coupled with a few hours of fasting can have a bad impact on the digestive tract. Eat foods that are healthy, and rich in nutrients. It is recommended to eat foods with complex carbohydrates and rich in fiber. Do not overeat both the meal and breaking the fast. Consumption of enough water Avoid consumption of caffeine, both coffee, tea, and soft drinks. Avoid foods that are acidic or too spicy Milk is generally alkaline so it is relatively safe for the stomach. However, for other drinks that contain a mixture of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) in too large amounts is not recommended. But of course fasting should not be forced when you experience certain symptoms, such as heartburn, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, or pain that radiates to the chest during fasting. Consult your GP or internal medicine specialist to decide whether you need additional gastric medication or certain nutritional management.
Thus, hopefully it can be useful.
