Heartburn or GERD can Kill

Heartburn is a common annoyance. The busy lifestyle, quick meals, fatty or spicy foods all contribute to the occasional need of a chewable pain reliever. The acceptance of heartburn as an inconvenient, but natural, part of the daily grind can blind you to the warning that a severe heartburn symptom can bring.

Heartburn as a Disorder

Heartburn can be a symptom as well as a disorder. Simple heartburn or GERD can be controlled and dealt with. However, heartburn can signal the presence of a much more serious problem. If it’s heartburn, you will have a burning sensation in the chest usually after eating. There may be a spread of the burning to the throat, sometimes accompanied by a bad taste, difficulty in swallowing, belching, coughing, hoarseness and/or wheezing.

It can become worse by lying down or bending over or by eating. Relief can come from an antacid. While the more severe heartburn symptoms may be mistaken for a heart attack, simple heartburn is usually not made worse by exercise. If there is any concern that the pain may signal a heart attack, get help quickly.

How to Naturally Control Diabetes

By Marcus Clarkson

Unfortunately, when it comes to Diabetes there is actually no cure for this condition it can only be treated and controlled. However, today there are both conventional and alternative treatments, which can be used in order to help keep the condition under control. Studies carried out in the USA have shown that the various different diabetes control natural treatments available can help to reduce the risk of complications arising by as much as 60 percent.

Although conventional treatments are effective, in this article, we are looking at some of the natural treatments, which are considered to be effective in helping to control diabetes. Certainly, there are many advantages to be had from using natural treatments and the main one is that they do not cause side effects. Where as those who use conventional treatments (drugs) will find that they suffer additional health problems ranging from skin allergies to tiredness and dizzy spells.

Plus choosing to use natural treatments for controlling diabetes is actually far safer. As well as the cost of buying the natural treatments over the chemical ones is much cheaper, and they are far readily available as well. Now let us look at some of the natural treatments that you may want to consider trying.

1. Pterocarpus Marsupium (Indian Kino) is a plant that contains a gum resin that is similar in looks to dried blood and is often referred to as Dragon's Blood. It is this part of the plant, which has been used for centuries in Indian Medicine for treating various different health issues including diabetes.

2. Momordica Charantia (Bitter Melon) or Balsam Pear as some people called it and can be found in Asia, Africa and South America. Just like the Indian Kino, this herb has been used for centuries and is effective at treating diabetes. It is the fresh juice and the extract taken from the unripened fruit that has been found to be effective at controlling a diabetic's blood sugar.

3. Gymnema Sylvestre (Gurmar) works by helping those who suffer from Type 2 diabetes pancreas to produce insulin. But as well as doing this, it contains properties which can control blood sugar levels in both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics.

4. Garlic and Onion have been used for centuries in treating various ailments and it is the properties that these plants contain which have been found to be effective at controlling a person's blood sugar when they suffer from diabetes.

As well as the diabetes control natural treatments, we have mentioned above there are other ones that you may want to consider trying. There are ones such as Cinnamon, Fenugreek, Blueberry Leaves and Bilberry which are all effective at helping to control this condition and which can be readily purchased at your local health store or online. But with any other treatment that you are considering using it is important that you discuss matters with your doctor first.
