The esophagus is the tube that carries food from the throat to the stomach. However, it is not just a simple tube. The lower esophagus has a specialized muscle around it that usually stays tightly closed, opening only to allow food and liquid into the stomach. It acts to prevent the reflux of stomach acid into the esophagus.
Symptoms occur when this specialized muscle weakens and allows stomach acid to splash up into the esophagus. These symptoms include heartburn, chest discomfort, and bitter fluid flowing up into the mouth. Chest discomfort can occur. If the stomach juice trickles into the breathing tubes, hoarseness, cough, and even shortness of breath can occur. This entire problem is called gerd (gastroesophageal reflux disease). A number of factors, including certain foods, may cause the lower esophageal muscle to relax, causing gerd.
Normally, your body would use pepsin to digest protein, but this enzyme is most effective in very acidic environments like the one found in your stomach. Those on acid reducing diets, as is often recommended for gerd patients, may find the digestion of proteins difficult, resulting in pain and reflux.
Adding pineapple and papaya to your gerd diet can help alleviate these symptoms by facilitating the breakdown of proteins.
2. Iodized salt.
Now, we have always heard that salt is bad for us and we should avoid it. Well, if you have gerd, you may have to hand over the chocolate, but you do get to sprinkle a little bit of salt on those veggies in your gerd diet.
Low iodine levels can contribute to hypothyroidism which is often associated with acid reflux. Many people today use sea salt which has not been iodized, so if this is the case, you should add some regular salt to your diet.
If you are unable to eat salt due to health issues, you should consider taking an iodine supplement. Low sodium levels have also been connected to acid reflux, so make sure you have at least a little salt in your gerd diet.
3. Omega-3 fatty acids.
This is controversial since many people say that adding omega-3s to their gerd diet significantly reduced gerd symptoms, while others claim that it actually made them worse.
Similarly, fatty fish (a high source of omega-3) is on the “avoid” list, but many gerd sufferers say that they have no problem eating salmon or tuna.
If you are able to handle omega-3s, the health and healing of the fish oil benefits are effective in boosting immunity and repairing damage. A fish oil supplement may also be taken if your body reacts better to this option.
What to avoid on a gerd diet?
Although specific foods to avoid may vary from person to person, there are a few general guidelines that may help reduce symptoms of gerd.
1. Spicy food.
Certain hot spices are known to irritate the esophagus and cause heartburn. Avoiding these may help prevent painful symptoms and reduce the risk of ulcerations.
2. Trans fats and high fat foods.
High fat foods, particularly those that contain trans fats, can cause reflux because of the large amounts of acid required to digest them. Foods with a high fat content have been linked to a decrease in les pressure and a delay in stomach emptying which can also lead to acid reflux.
As well, dangerous trans fats have been connected to esophageal disease, and since gerd can also contribute to complications with the esophagus, it is best to eliminate them from your gerd diet.
3. Very hot food and liquid.
It is best to let food and beverages cool a little before consuming since very hot substances have been linked to stomach and intestinal ulcers, which can intensify the symptoms of acid reflux.
4. Mint and chocolate.
Both peppermint and chocolate contain chemicals that can stimulate the release of stomach acids while also relaxing the smooth muscle sphincter between the stomach and esophagus, often resulting in acid reflux and heartburn.
Alcohol irritates the lining of the stomach and is actually one of the most reported causes of heartburn.
6. Your own trigger foods.
Given the complex nature of gerd, this one has to be added. I know it is repetitive, but everyone has certain foods that irritate their condition and cause severe symptoms. Make a list of these foods and avoid them in the future.
Menopause is a phase that every woman goes through. As a woman ages, her hormones fluctuate, and she experiences certain symptoms that she wouldn’t have experienced when younger. One cannot ignore the health issues that are caused as a result of menopause. These menopausal changes can affect urological health too. Let us look at this effect in detail.
Menopause in simple terms can be summed up as the end of a woman’s reproductive cycle. The symptoms can begin before you stop menstruating or in some cases even after. This phase usually begins after the age of 40 and in some rare cases can occur even earlier such as health conditions that might have affected the ovaries. Natural menopause does not happen overnight, and it is a gradual transition, which usually lasts for several years. The symptoms kick in when the ovaries start to produce less estrogen, and the process continues till the last eggs are produced.
Symptoms of menopause:
Some of the common symptoms of menopause are hot flashes, vaginal dryness, mood swings, irritability, and painful intercourse. Also, there could be some urological symptoms, these should be noted as they could be an indicator of other health risks or disorders.
Urological Health during Menopause:
Urological health would most often be ignored when passing through such a crucial phase as menopause. However, it is advisable to consult a doctor regarding any urological changes and symptoms that is experienced during this phase.
- One of the most common complaints during menopause is urinary tract infections. The frequency of these infections increases during or after menopause. These infections occur due to the reduced levels of estrogen. Though the condition fades gradually, drinking plenty of fluids and eating food high in fiber will be helpful. If necessary ask your doctor to prescribe a topical estrogen cream.
- Another common complaint is incontinence. This is also caused by the reduced levels of estrogen in the body. It can lead to urinary infections and uncontrollable bladder discharge. There are also several other factors that can result in incontinence such as lifestyle and the type of food consumed. Regularizing your diet and having a regular exercise pattern could be beneficial. Discuss any changes that you can and should make with your doctor.
- The risk of kidney infections and diseases also increases with menopause. The chance of developing kidney stones is also greater.
- In addition to the symptoms of infection any pain while passing urine or blood in the urine should be brought to the attention of your doctor immediately. This will ensure that you receive the medication and care you require quickly. Drinking plenty of fluids, eating nutritious food and leading a healthy lifestyle will be beneficial.
