Dr. Oz Alkaline Diet – endorses alkaline water

As Dr. Oz featured on his blog, incorporating fresh alkaline water into your diet can greatly improve various conditions that are due to excess acidity in the body:

” Heartburn is one of the most common medical conditions experienced by upwards of 40% of Americans on a monthly basis. Sixty million or more Americans have heartburn once a week. It occurs when a faulty valve (lower esophageal sphincter) responsible for keeping acid-containing food in the stomach fails to do its job and acid-laden contents are allowed to reflux into the esophagus (food tube). If heartburn persists, it can lead to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

Acid reflux, or heartburn, can happen when there is large amount of pressure in the stomach (such as after a big meal) or if the valve at the lower esophageal sphincter becomes inappropriately weak after consuming certain substances (caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, etc.) Frequently, both mechanisms of action are the cause. When reflux occurs, the lining of the esophagus is not designed to handle this displacement of acid and it can become irritated and that irritation causes heartburn.

One frequently unappreciated fact is that there are two faces of heartburn as to how it presents. The typical (classic) symptoms and atypical symptoms for heartburn are:

Typical Symptoms

  • Burning breast-plate (sternal) chest pain; increased by bending or lying down, worse at night, and relieved by antacids
  • Food sticking after swallowing behind breast plate
  • Acid in back of throat/sour taste on awakening
  • Regurgitation
  • Dyspepsia
  • Burping
  • Nausea
  • Upper abdominal pain
  • Fullness
  • Temporary relief obtained with off-the-shelf antacids

Atypical Symptoms

  • Asthma
  • Postnasal drip
  • Persistent cough
  • Lump in throat
  • Raspy or hoarse voice
  • Noncardiac chest pain

Whether you have typical or atypical symptoms, reflux is a health issue that you cannot ignore. It is imperative that you realize that all heartburn is not created equal. You must work with your doctor to quickly assess your symptoms and determine if you have reflux or something more serious called gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Frequency of symptoms can be an important risk factor for diagnosis for GERD. About 3% to 7% (9-21 million) of Americans have reflux every day and, unfortunately, the incidence is rising. About 22% of the primary-care visits in this country involve GERD symptoms. Over the last seven years, this is an increase of 46%.

The prolonged presence of acid in the esophagus leads to complications that can produce a range of problems from annoyance to a potentially fatal condition.

The following are the complications that can occur with GERD:

  • Erosive esophagitis
  • Esophageal ulcers
  • Esophageal strictures
  • Aspiration pneumonia and asthma
  • Poor quality of life
  • Barrett’s esophagus (and this can lead to esophageal cancer in a small percentage of cases)

In light of the potential negative impact of the above complications on your life, you must take this condition seriously. You do not want to think that you are a heartburn sufferer that is actually a GERD hostage and then turn into an esophageal cancer victim.

Diet and Lifestyle Change: The First Line of Defense

The good news is, most people who have heartburn can manage symptoms on their own. Lifestyle and dietary changes can be the first line of defense. These include

(1) Changing what you eat [and drinking fresh high quality alkaline water made from a water ionizer]

(2) Changing when and how you eat

(3) Elevate the head of your bed to help avoid nighttime symptoms

(4) Weight loss

We are in a war against heartburn, and the American diet is full of land mines that cause us to suffer. It is high in heavy, fat-laden meats, carbs and processed foods. Most notably, there is not a good balance between the bad (acid-promoting) foods that cause heartburn and the good (alkaline-promoting) foods that help to prevent heartburn. What can you do? Strive to balance your culinary equation by pursuing a more alkaline diet.

Good (Alkaline-Promoting) Foods

  • Grilled and baked meat
  • All veggies
  • Breads, rice, oatmeal
  • Alkaline water and coconut milk
  • Melons
  • Pears
  • Bananas
  • Ginger
  • Chamomile tea
  • Manuka honey

Investing in a high quality alkaline water ionizer for your home can save you tons of money as you will no longer have to buy bottled water! Produce high quality, anti-oxidant rich, alkaline water straight from your tap and never buy bottled water again. Top leading health professionals such as Dr. Gerald Bresnahan, M.D.,FACC (the cardiologist of President Barack Obama and previous presidents) use Enagic Kangen Water Ionizers, which are certified as registered medical devices in Japan.

Bad (Acid-Promoting) Foods

  • Alcohol
  • Caffeine
  • Chocolate
  • Carbonated and citrus beverages
  • Canned foods (heavy acid for preservation)
  • Onions
  • Raw tomatoes
  • Breath mints
  • Garlic

No More Acid in the Morning

The following are good tips for launching a diet with more alkaline balance (drinking fresh alkaline water first thing in the morning is a good way to start out). The first principle is to suppress the traditional dominance of acid at breakfast. Oatmeal with an alkaline selection of nuts and bananas, mixed with Manuka honey for sweetness, followed by a serving of melon can be a delicious and filling option for breakfast. Smoothies are a great choice because you can put many alkaline options into one serving. For lunch, salads are a great alkaline diet champion. Just like smoothies, they offer an excellent opportunity to infuse your diet with alkaline-promoting foods and water while limiting total calorie intake. Give that salad a tasty pop and take advantage of an opportunity to provide alkaline balance by adding pears and apples.

Remember to watch the salad dressings (hidden calories). Snacks are another place where a more healthy and alkaline balance can be added into your diet. Parmesan and dill can add tasty dimensions to a snack like popcorn. For dinner, grilled and baked meats are always excellent choices and even pasta (a weakness for many of us) is allowed. However, a slight modification must be observed. Avoid acidic choices such as marinara or alfredo sauce and use light olive oil with lemon and creative combinations of herbs and spices (especially Turmeric).

 

Chew on This

I cannot overemphasize that doing the simple things can go a long way in winning the war on heartburn. Always take small bites of food and chew it ten times before swallowing. Try not to drink after every bite. It causes you to swallow air and that can increase the pressure inside of the stomach and promote reflux and heartburn. Try not to eat a large meal less than three hours before going to bed, and raise the head of your bed on cinder blocks to recruit gravity to keep the acid in the stomach.

Other measures that can be taken include wearing loose-fitting clothing and undergarments, mild exercise after eating and getting into a smoking-cessation program. In spite of all your good intentions, from time to time the desired alkaline focus may be difficult to maintain. If you fall short, do not panic; just remember for every acid-promoting food, you need to ingest two alkaline-promoting foods.

Let’s face it, having a glass of wine can be a temptation that is difficult to resist. If you do succumb, remember to drink fresh alkaline water and eat one of the good fruit choices to help to counter the acid-reflux-promoting effects of the alcohol. And finally the great thing about following this kind of diet is that you are more likely to achieve a moderate weight loss of 10-20 pounds.

Do not be fooled by the modest nature of this weight loss, it can be effective in helping to decrease the pressure inside the abdomen being applied to the stomach and lessen the chances for reflux.”
