The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Acid Reflux

    Anyone else got this? It kills me. Somedays it's good. Other days I have heartburn like you wouldn't believe. I'm sick of taking antacid tablets. Does anyone have any home remedies besides milk, cottage cheese, etc.? I need something that is long lasting.

    Will the vinegar work all day? And what are it's other benefits? Doesn't it have anti-oxidants?

    ugh ashlee simpson. second daughters are just never as good as the first...

    but back to the post, i actually have some reflux going right now as i type this. i find that alka seltzer does the trick for me. i dont think the milk/cottage cheese route is a very good one because even though it may coat your esophagus/stomach remember that milk is acidic, so it may worsen your reflux. the vinegar sounds like a good idea, i may try that. would pounding a shot of vinegar take care of the acid reflux?

    Vinegar is more acidic than milk. Vinegar has a pH of ~3, whereas milk would be almost neutral.

    the problem isn't too much acid it's not enough acid

    I wasn't answering the question. I was just saying that milk wouldn't be as acidic as vinegar.

    Why do we take antacid tablet's that contain base compounds such as Calcium Carbonate, to neutralise the stomach acid?

    When I was experiencing acid reflux my ENT specialist put me on a strict diet... there was pages of stuff to avoid. He also had me follow simple rules like not laying down or sitting around after eating, raising the head of your bed 2-4 inches, and oddly enough taking Nyquill before going to bed. He did put me on some meds to help control it because it was so bad. But I have continued to follow these rules with the exception to my bed.... but I haven't had anymore problems and I have identified the two food that give me crippling heart burn....peppers and italian sausage which my family oddly enough consumes a lot of.

    Just take some time to take care of your body and listen to it... it will let you know what makes it feel good and not so good.
