Heartburn Is Often Caused by Dehydration
Six Causes of Heartburn No. One: DEHYDRATION by Dr. Lynn August
“Dyspeptic pain is the most important signal for the human body. It denotes dehydration. It is a thirst signal of the body. It can occur in the very young, as well as in older people. Chronic and persistently increasing dehydration is the root cause of ….. gastritis, duodentitis, and heartburn.” Your Body’s Many Cries for Water F. Batmanghelidj, M.D
Rehydration requires adequate water, salt and electrolytes.
For heartburn, acid indigestion and GERD (gastro esophageal reflux disease) a glass of reconstituted Lyte solution is recommended with each meal, 1 ½ tsp. of Health Equations Lyte Solution concentrate in 8 oz. of water.
Use the Lyte CL Solution if you are an athlete or have high cholesterol. Use the Lyte K Solution if you have hypertension and Cardiovascular Disease. Note: Do not use Lyte Solution Formulas with compromised renal function, ascites, pleural effusions or uncontrolled edema.
In addition to rehydration, the other functions of Electrolytes include:
- Increase cell membrane charge, cell energy production and cell functions
- Provide full spectrum trace minerals (65+)
- Enhance tissue mineral solubility
- Aid digestion
- Improve adrenal function
- Promote liver function
- Facilitate detoxification
- Supply ionic magnesium
