Is It True That Consumption Of Guava Juice Can Overcome Stomach Acid?
Is it true that the symptoms of stomach acid can be treated by drinking guava fruit routinely ?? The problem is that the doctor in charge of me told me to take guava fruit to recover quickly
Thank you for the question.
Symptoms of gastric acid (dyspepsia syndrome) can actually be a manifestation of various diseases, for example gastroesophageal reflux, gastritis, cholangitis, cholecystitis, pancreatitis, and so on. In most cases, the exact cause of dyspepsia is unknown (functional dyspepsia). So far, there is still little research that shows consumption of the beverage products that you mentioned to overcome the symptoms of dyspepsia. It's just that, if the drink is the main ingredient is guava fruit extract, it can indeed help reduce the symptoms of inflammation, including inflammation around the stomach, esophagus, bladder or bile duct, and pancreas which can be one of the triggers for dyspepsia.
Without checking you directly, it is not our authority to assess whether it is true what the doctor says, that consumption of these beverage products can help alleviate your condition, or not. But often, dyspepsia syndrome is a multifactorial condition, so treatment is not enough to do just by consuming certain beverage products.
If it is true that you have already seen a doctor and given treatment, it is better for you to go through the treatment as the doctor advised. Not only that, also balance the handling by eating small portions but often, reduce the consumption of foods and drinks that irritate the digestive tract (such as chili sauce, sauce, coconut milk, fried foods, sour fruit, high fiber vegetables, caffeine, soda), do not immediately lying down after eating, exercising regularly so that the body weight remains ideal, drinking enough, controlling emotions well, regularly resting, and do not carelessly take medicine without advice from a doctor.
If the handling of the doctor and the steps above you have lived, but your complaints are still often repeated, immediately check yourself back to the doctor or doctor of internal medicine.
I hope this helps.
