Acid reflux disease is primarily caused by the malfunction of the esophageal sphincter. If there is insufficient supply of the stomach acid, the valve in the stomach responsible for churning up foods to the intestine does not open up.

Smoking can irritate this problem but recent studies are now showing that coffee, alcohol and tea don’t cause the disease. Nonetheles, they can still make things worse, especially alcohol.

If you smoke for over 20 years, there is a 70 percent chance to develop this more than non-smokers. This is an important motivator to quit smoking.

A new study shows that high amounts of salt can have a similar response for the body to develop gerd as smoking. At NYU Medical center, they saw a high correlation of how extra salt can create a risk for gastro esophageal reflux disease.

To treat this kind of disorder, there are varieties of ways possible. It can be cured by prescribed drugs such as antacids, by natural way such as change of diet system, elevation of the head when lying down, or to the utmost is surgery.

Miracle II Soap can be used in some ways you may not have thought about. Lather some up with water and use it to shave your beard or legs. People say that they can use their razor longer than with other soaps or shaving creams. If you’ve been exposed to chemicals take a miracle ii soap bath. I spoke with someone who had a furnace problem and didn’t know it. There was carbon monoxide poisoning but since it’s odorless and colorless she didn’t know it. When she took a long miracle ii soap bath the water turned brown.

The soap needs to be diluted and shouldn’t be use as-is since it’s very concentrated. Another use is to either wash laundry in washing machine with a few caps of the miracle 2 soap or use the laundry ball and use 1/2 a teaspoon. The ingredients in laundry detergents cause allergic reactions for some. When you sweat you are absorbing chemicals into your body.
