Reflexology Safety For People With Stomach Acid?
morning. My parents are experiencing acid reflux. Isn’t it safe if I bring him in for reflection once in a while? Because the medicine has been provided by the doctor who examined it. It’s just that I haven’t asked for this. He also has a history of high blood pressure and heart disease. But still in good condition in the meantime. Mhn the advice. thanks
Acid reflux is generally caused by increased stomach acid production which then causes various symptoms, namely heartburn, nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite, etc.
Possible triggers for acid reflux include:
Irregular eating patterns, often eating late
Often consume foods that are sour, spicy
Helicobacter Pylori infection
Taking pain medication (NSAIDs) regularly, etc.
So far there is no direct link between acid reflux disease and reflexology. So you can bring your parents for reflection. Reflexology is carried out aimed at relaxing the muscles in the legs of a person. However, it is better if the massage is too strong and causes pain, communicate with the masseuse so that it is adjusted to comfort.
As for conditions with a history of high blood pressure and heart disease, you should first consult with the doctor who treats the patient.
Here are suggestions for your parents:
-Apply a healthy lifestyle
-Eat regularly, in small amounts but often.
-Avoid spicy and acidic foods, soft drinks, coffee, tea, alcoholic beverages
-Manage stress well
- Get enough rest
-Take drugs given by the doctor according to instructions
