At Body Healing Power our concern is for your overall health, inside and out. Massage and homeopathy go hand-in-hand with healthy living, and when thinking of healthy living, there are so many things to consider.

For example, you may have seen the TV commercial that shows a man’s food “beating him up and causing heartburn.” While we may chuckle about the silly commercial, the misery of heartburn and acid reflux is no laughing matter. More importantly, is the product advertised in the commercial really the correct solution? Did you know that many heartburn sufferers are receiving the wrong treatment?

stomachMost heartburn is not caused by too much stomach acid. Instead, it is often caused by a lack of acid, which actually causes food to start rotting in the stomach. How can you tell the difference? If you experience a lot of gas and belching along with heartburn, think about having your stomach acid level tested – many chiropractors provide this service. You may also consider looking for products to help you digest food such as HCl supplements or probiotics. If you’d like a more detailed explanation of the low-acid issue and an easy self-test, check out the following link. http://drlarsen.com/is-heartburn-really-due-to-too-much-acid/

In addition, at Body Healing Power Dawn does visceral manipulation to help mobilize sphincter muscles; they can be stuck open or closed. Another of her services is myofascial release, which can help release scar tissue that may have actually pulled the stomach up through the diaphragm, preventing the sphincter from properly closing. Did you know that scar tissue can be caused by a simple fall or a high-impact injury sustained in a car accident over 23 MPH? In some cases, Dawn’s services have worked for individuals in only one treatment-and heartburn has gone away for good! If you’re experiencing chronic heartburn, it’s worth a shot, isn’t it? Better yet, it can be done in a half-hour session!

What else can you do keep heartburn at bay? Of course we would also recommend reducing stress and avoiding too many oily, fatty foods. Foods like orange juice or even chocolate can set off a case of heartburn. Chiropractic can also be a good option to optimize nerve function for proper acid production. Whether you need to utilize one of our suggestions or several to solve your heartburn issue, at Body Healing Power, we help your body heal itself naturally.
