Acid Reflux & Recurring Heartburn

Understand how to treat your Acid Reflux by detoxing ammonium and histamine which are one of the underlying causes of acid reflux.

Understand what is causing your acid reflux, why its happening and most importantly how to treat acid reflux naturally!

Two reasons why you have acid reflux

1) Too much acid in your stomach caused by a histamine overload
2) Low stomach acid which is caused by too much ammonium

How does histamine cause acid reflux?
Let's start with histamine. Histamine is a compound your body naturally produces, including your stomach to create acid. It is normally removed from your stomach using an enzyme called diamine oxidase (DAO). However, when you have too much histamine in your gut i.e. from high histamine foods or if you have low levels of DAO it can cause your symptoms of acid reflux.

How does ammonium cause acid reflux?
Ammonium is interesting, and not many talk about it, or understand it. Ammonium is a waste product produced created when your body breaks down protein. It is also produced by a nasty stomach bacteria called helicobacter pylori (H. Pylori). Ammonium alkalises stomach acid. This means your stomach acid is not able to break down food which can cause food and acid to push back up the esophagus and cause the burning in your chest, throat and acid burps.

Natural treatment for Acid Reflux
When you have to much ammonium and histamine in your digestive tract, you will have the symptoms of acid reflux such as the burning painful sensation you feel in your chest. The Toxaprevent Medi Plus Sachets bind and detox, ammonium and histamine from the stomach. The sachet contains the natural zeolite clinoptilolite MANC which is a binder, that safely detoxes the toxins from your body via your natural bowel moment. Take Toxaprevent daily to treat the symptoms of acid reflux you are feeling.

  • 1. What is ammonium

    Ammonium is a waste product, created when your stomach breaks down and digests protein. Normally your kidneys will detox ammonium, using bicarbonate to convert into to urea to be passed out in your urine. Ammonia is also produced by Helicobacter Pylori to allow it to survive in the stomach.

  • 2. Ammonium toxicity

    Ammonium is toxic to our health. When there is too much in our body, the kidneys will take the bicarbonate from the stomach to get rid of it. However, taking the bicarbonate from the stomach is not good. As the bicarbonate in the stomach is normally used to balance our stomach acid naturally.

  • 3. Ammonium causes reflux

    By removing the bicarbonate from the stomach it means the acid is not properly being alkalised. This means your acid levels will be high and you will feel the burning sensation and symptoms of acid reflux. Ammonium is also alkaline which can create low stomach, which can cause acid reflux.

  • 4. Low stomach acid

    Stomach bacteria such as Helicobacter Pylori produce ammonium which alkalises stomach acid. By lowering the stomach acid the H. Pylori is able to swim through and cause further stomach issues. H. Pylori also produces histamine which causes acid reflux and causes further gut inflammation.

  • 5. Histamine causes acid reflux

    Your body naturally creates histamine to create acid in the stomach. However, bacteria such as H. pylori can release more histamine which can cause your acid levels to be higher. Foods such as bread, oily foods and citrus can trigger heartburn.

  • 6. Histamine foods cause acid reflux

    Some foods are high in histamine, such as cheese, coffee and wine. This is because histamine is needed part of the process to create the aroma and taste. When your body digests these foods, it releases the histamine from the foods triggers your acid reflux.
