7 Steps to Reducing Acid Reflux

How I alleviated my acid reflux

My Journey

For years I’ve had digestive issues and I was on and off proton pump inhibitors.  It got to the point where the medication didn’t work.  You name the medication, I probably was prescribed it. I knew I had to make a change.

I’ve always been interested in nutrition and enrolled in an online nutrition class.

It was at a women’s networking meeting that I met a woman who was enrolled in the Health Coach Training Program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.  I asked her why she was enrolled at IIN and the difference between their program and the nutrition class I was taking.  She mentioned that she liked the IIN program because they offered a holistic approach to nutrition and taught over 100 dietary theories.

When I got home from the meeting, I got on the internet and began researching IIN.  I was impressed with their program and the fact the program covered learning several dietary theories and there was a section of the program devoted to digestive health. So, I enrolled in the program!  I was excited!  I met so many like-minded people and these people are now my friends/colleagues!

When I enrolled in the Health Coach Training Program, my first objective was to write down my health goal. My goal was to naturally alleviate my acid reflux.

Steps to reducing acid

Elimination Diet

The Elimination Diet means doing the following for one week:

  1. Temporarily eliminating dairy products (milk, ice cream, cheese, etc.)
  2. Eliminating the “white” stuff (white pasta, white rice, potatoes, white flour/bread)…gluten!
  3. Reducing/Eliminating meat (beef, chicken, etc.)
  4. Eliminating processed foods
  5. Reducing acidic foods
  6. Reducing sugar cravings!  This is a big one for me!  I love my sweets!
  7. Reducing caffeine and alcohol consumption.

Reintroducing foods the right way

This is also much simpler than people make it out to be.

Pick one thing you eliminated—like gluten, dairy, or eggs—but not more than one, and eat it.

Once you’ve made a call on the first food you reintroduce, pick another one and follow the same steps.

By gradually reintroducing one food group back into your diet at a time and keeping a food journal, you can track how you feel after eating these foods. See how you feel over the next 48 hours. If you have no reaction after two days, eat that same food again, and for a second time, notice how you feel. From there, it’s up to you whether or not to re-incorporate that food into your diet on a regular basis.

  • DO eat fish.  Watch out for fish with high content of mercury and try to avoid farm raised fish.
  • DO eat lots of fiber, fresh whole foods, and unprocessed meals you make yourself.
  • DO eat lots of healthy fats found in olive oil, ghee, coconut oil, sunflower oil, flax oil, walnut oil, and avocados.

Adding clean foods back into your diet such as brown rice, brown rice, buckwheat, or whole grain pasta, quinoa, almond milk or coconut milk, organic ice cream, and sprouted bread. Adding in more fruits and vegetables, and alkaline foods.

On a personal note: I began eating kale and I had never heard or tried kale and had not eaten many other leafy greens (cruciferous vegetables ) until I enrolled at IIN. I added kale in to my smoothies as well as superfoods. I also added quality nutritional supplements, probiotics, digestive enzymes, omega-3, Vitamin D, resveratrol, and grape seed extract.

I temporarily went vegan but I consider myself a Flexitarian. I eat raw, vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, and organic when I can. I also eat eggs, chicken, fish, and ground turkey. I add turmeric, ginger, and lemon for my foods/soups/water.

You will lose weight, feel less bloated, have more energy, and sleep better!

Remember this: No one diet works for everyone.  Eating healthy, losing weight, and weight management is a lifestyle not a diet!

Made more raw cacao balls

I’ve been tossing the idea of adding more superfoods to my raw cacao balls.  This time I added spirulina, chia powder, maca powder, goji berry powder, raw cacao nibs, and organic shredded coconut to my recipe. This is a good healthy day or evening snack. And tasty too!  I brought them to work and my coworkers loved them!

The ingredients are:

  • 10 medjool dates
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp NutriBullet superfood powder (maca, chia, goji, and raw cacao)
  • 1 tsp raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao nibs
  • 1 tsp spirulina powder
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut – optional

Blend everything together in a NutriBullet until well blended. Shape in the form of balls or brownie.  Roll balls in coconut or top brownie with coconut.

Don’t know what to do with those bananas that are over ripe?!  Here is an idea!  Add them to pancakes.  I just love them with blueberries! I add a half scoop of Arbonne protein powder to that I get my protein.  These pancakes provide a great boost of energy in the morning and they are healthy too!

Ingredients:

  • Whole Wheat Pancake Mix
  • 1/2 scoop of Arbonne Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 organic egg
  • 1/2 cup almond milk – amount varies on how thick you want your pancakes
  • 1/4 cup fresh or frozen organic blueberries
  • 1 soft banana

Combine pancake mix, protein powder, coconut oil, cinnamon, egg, milk, and banana.  Add in blueberries.

Is coconut oil the new miracle potion?

If you’re like me, you probably have spent hours trying to figure out how to pick out the right kind or healthier coconut oil in your local health food store. I’ve spent half an hour or more reading and comparing labels determining the difference between extra virgin coconut oil, unrefined virgin coconut oil, and refined coconut oil!


Difference between extra virgin coconut oil, virgin coconut oil, and refined coconut oil?

Let’s start with the processing of coconut oil.

Refined Processing

Whether coconut oil becomes refined or unrefined depends on what processing methods the oil undergoes. Refined coconut oil starts out as dried coconut meat, known as “copra.” Because coconut oil producers frequently dry the meat in open air, it can gather hazardous bacteria and pathogens-so any oil extracted from copra needs further purification before it’s safe to consume. During the refinement process, copra undergoes bleach filtration to screen out impurities, as well as heat treatment to remove its distinctive odor.

Unrefined Processing

Unrefined coconut oil, on the other hand, starts with fresh coconut meat rather than dried copra—ensuring the extracted oil is sanitary without the need for further purification. To produce unrefined coconut oil, the meat goes through one of two methods: “quick drying” or “wet milling.” Quick-dried coconut meat receives a small amount of heat to remove moisture, and then mechanical extraction separates the unrefined oil from the meat. With the wet-milling process, machines press the liquid out of fresh coconut meat—and then use boiling, refrigeration, centrifuging, fermentation or enzymes to isolate the oil from the extracted liquid. With both the quick drying and wet milling methods, the resulting coconut oil is safe for consumption without bleaching or deodorization.


Unrefined, Expeller Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil

As the name suggests, it is the crude coconut oil that has been obtained right from the expeller; unrefined, unfiltered and without any additives. Sometimes, it is also called the Pure Coconut Oil to mark its differences with the Refined Bleached Deodorized Coconut Oil, known as the Refined Coconut Oil.

Virgin Coconut Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, and Organic Virgin Coconut Oil can be unrefined too.

Note: there is no difference between extra virgin or virgin coconut oil.


Advantages of Virgin Coconut Oil

  • Taste: Unrefined Coconut Oil is tastier than the Refined Coconut Oil as it is neither bleached nor refined.
  • Flavor: Unrefined Coconut Oil has a beautiful flavor of that of fresh coconuts which is absent in Refined Coconut Oil, since it is deodorized.
  • Nutrients: It is more nutritious than the refined one, being least process and subjected to least heat. It is richer in proteins (this is almost absent in refined oil), vitamins and antioxidants. Contains medium chain fatty acids.
  • Natural: It does not undergo any chemical processing therefore is not refined. It has a more natural touch. It is derived from fresh coconuts and is not subject to heat. This preserves all the natural goodness of this oil, such as high content of Vitamin-E and minerals, which are otherwise almost stripped from the Ordinary Coconut Oil during processes like heating, filtration, refining, and bleaching which are done to make it colorless and odorless.
  • Wholeness: It is wholesome coconut oil.
  • Virgin Coconut Oil is very effective as a moisturizing agent.


Disadvantages of Virgin Coconut Oil

  • Hygiene: It is less hygienic than the Refined Coconut Oil, since it does not undergo any refining and may contain dust particles and other unwanted stuff.
  • Therapeutic Uses: It may not be suitable for therapeutic uses.
  • Internal Applications: The Refined Coconut Oil is better in this respect, being more hygienic.
  • Cost: Despite being less processed, it is bit more money than the refined one, since most of the coconut oil produced is converted to refined oil.
  • Availability: Unrefined Coconut Oil is less easily available than the refined grade.


Health Benefits of Coconut Oil

The health benefits of coconut oil include:

  • Hair care
  • Skin care
  • Stress relief
  • Maintaining cholesterol levels
  • Weight loss
  • Increased immunity
  • Proper digestion and metabolism
  • Relief from kidney problems
  • Heart diseases
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • HIV
  • Cancer
  • Dental care
  • Bone strength

These benefits of coconut oil can be attributed to the presence of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid. Its properties are antimicrobial, antioxidant, antifungal, antibacterial, and soothing.

Organic Virgin Coconut Oil can be purchased at Whole Foods, Mother’s Market, and Sprouts.

For more information on coconut oil, a good book to read is The Coconut Oil Miracle by Bruce Fife, CN, ND. It is available on Amazon.com or your local health food store.

Is Food Combining the Secret to Healthy Eating?

      Yes, food combinations is the secret to healthy eating.

The discomfort of indigestion is so common in today’s society that it’s almost considered normal. Instead of using medication to suppress symptoms, it be wiser to properly combine foods in order to remove the causes of indigestion.

According to Ayurveda, Chinese medicine, and other alternative medicine, if you combine the wrong foods, your body will become acidic and unbalanced, and actually will secrete enzymes that cancel each other out. This causes bloating, gas, weight loss and fluctuations in energy levels. It can also lead to slowed or impaired digestion. It also causes food to ferment in the stomach or toxins to be released in the intestines.

Proper food combinations are based on the idea that there are foods groups that digest well with each other and others that don’t. So what is food combining? What food is a protein and what food is a starch?

Food Combining Categories

• Lean proteins: Lean fish, lean meats and poultry, low-fat dairy, protein powder

• Starches and starchy proteins: Grains (including bread, pasta, etc), potatoes, sweet potatoes, beets, parsnips, carrots, pumpkin, winter squashes, beans, lentils, peas, tofu, tempeh

• Fats and fatty proteins: Avocados, olives, nuts, seeds, oils, butter, cheese, yogurt, eggs, fatty fish, poultry, meat

• Greens and non-starchy vegetables: leafy greens, sprouts, celery, cucumber, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, asparagus, radish, zucchini, onion, garlic, mushrooms, green beans, fresh corn

• Fruit: lemons, limes, grapefruit, oranges, tomatoes, strawberries, pineapples, apples, berries, pears, apricots, peaches, grapes, plums, cherries, mangoes, papayas, figs, bananas, dates, dried fruits, fruit juice, watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew

• Sweeteners: sugars, syrups, malt syrups, honey

Proper Food Combinations

• Greens and non-starchy vegetables combine well with pretty much any type of food.
• Lean proteins combine best with greens and non-starchy vegetables.
• Starches and starchy proteins combine best with greens, non-starchy vegetables and fats.
• Fats and fatty proteins combine best with greens, non-starchy vegetables, starches.
• Fruits combine best with greens and should be eaten first as they exit the body most quickly.
• Sweeteners are best eaten on their own (i.e. in tea).

Exceptions

• Acidic fruits (citrus, tomatoes, strawberries, pineapples) combine well with fats or proteins.
• Melons should be eaten alone, since they digest faster than other fruits.
• Bananas can be eaten with starches due to their starchy content. Once bananas are fully ripen, their content turns to sugar.
• One-pot meals cooked slowly with lots of water (like soups and stews) don’t tend to cause as much difficulty in digestion when there are poor combinations.

Poor Food Combinations

Starch and proteins should be eaten separately because they digest differently. Starch begins to break down in the mouth, as all carbohydrates do, whereas protein breaks down in the gastrointestinal tract. If eating a starchy carbohydrate with a protein, such as pasta or rice, the carb will sit in the stomach acid and will ferment and putrefy while the system is digesting the protein and fat. It’s best to eat starches and proteins with vegetables.

Avoid if possible:

• Proteins with other proteins, fats, fruits and sweeteners
• Starches with other starches, proteins, fruits and sweeteners
• Fats with proteins, fruits and sweeteners

To summarize, once the body is balanced, or alkaline, and the digestive system is healthy and active, you will be able to eat more combinations, unless you have digestive issues like IBS, chronic constipation, Crohn’s, candida, bloating, or other chronic issues. The digestive system is designed to digest food and will continue to do so as long as it isn’t overloaded too much or too often.

The most important point to remember is to keep the body alkaline or balanced. Most often, the body will tell you which combinations work and which ones don’t.

Every rule has an exception, and one person’s food is another person’s poison. Listen to your body’s messages and find out what works best for you.
