How To Cure Stomach Acid?
assalamualaikum introduce, my name is Syam, 26 years old, want to ask how to cure stomach acid, it’s better to use medicine or herbs
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to clarify, what kind of stomach acid do you mean?
Gastric acid (HCl) is naturally produced from parietal cells that inhabit the inner stomach wall. Gastric acid secretion occurs under the regulation of autonomic nerves. Under normal conditions, gastric acid is very useful in the digestive process, as well as to neutralize toxins and inhibit the growth of harmful microorganisms in the digestive tract. So, it is not appropriate if you mention that stomach acid must be cured. Because even healthy people will produce acid in the stomach.
If you mean the increased production of stomach acid (dyspepsia), then this condition can have various causes, including:
Disorders of the esophagus, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, esophagitis
Stomach disorders, such as gastritis, peptic ulcers, gastric cancer
Disorders of the ducts and / or gallbladder, such as due to inflammation or stones
Functional dyspepsia (which cannot be identified as the exact cause), and so on
Often, these symptoms of increased acid reflux are triggered by hormonal fluctuations, severe psychological and physical pressure, consumption of certain drugs, foods or drinks, and so on. Depending on the cause and originator, its severity, and the general health condition of the sufferer, this dyspepsia can have a variety of treatments, it can be enough with natural treatment, administration of drugs, or even surgery (if there is an underlying anatomic disorder).
If this condition is true for you, we recommend that you consult a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine so that the best solution can be provided. Frequently, the diagnosis of dyspepsia can be established by doctors after excluding other possible diseases that often show similar clinical symptoms. It could also be done, supporting tests, such as ultrasound, endoscopy, and so on.
To help control the increased production of stomach acid, we recommend that you do not consume drugs or any herbal products carelessly without consulting a doctor first. Simply improve your diet, i.e. by eating a little but often and regularly, do not immediately lie down after eating, and avoid excessive consumption of foods that are spicy, sour, oily, fatty, and caffeinated drinks. Do not forget, manage your stress well, get enough rest, and always live a healthy lifestyle.
Hope this helps ...
