Curing Acidity (GERD)
Kidney Stones and Subsequent Acidity
I had kidney stones for 3 years in a row. The stones were small and I went to doctors in time. The stones were removed by giving Diuretics, anti biotics, drips of saline water and muscle relaxants, through urine.
This was shocking. I was an all rounder. I was a sports person who would love to play any game that was going around. Sports was my first love. We were taught that sports is good for health.
The doctor told to drink 6 to 8 litres of water daily. After first year kidney stone I took special care to drink enough water. But inspite of that I developed kidney stones. I was confused. I was worried.
Around this time, I suffered from acidity. I could hardly eat anything. Even if I drank water, I felt that I was full upto my throat.
I could not tolerate any spices or oily food.
I took ant acids, injections, medicines. I took lot of care in deciding what I should eat.
Nothing worked. Every passing day the things were getting worse. There was no improvement.
I stopped taking interest in business. I started studying health related matters on internet. I was shocked to find that there was no cure for any ailment. All my life I used to believe that doctors can cure any disease.
Now it was only health and nothing else. I thought if I am healthy, I can earn money for 3040 more years. Otherwise I will end up spending all money on doctors and hospitals.
Today I am 100% fit. No health issues. I can work for 16 to 20 hours a day. I did not spend any money on my treatment.
To cut the long story short. I experimented on hydration / dehydration cycles and found that these can cure any disease. I found that dehydration is equally important along with hydration.
If any wants to get 100% relief from acidity without any medicine in 48 hours –
Day 1 – Drink 100200 ml water every hour from 7 am to 6 pm.
Day 2 – Do not drink any fluids. Or drink as little as possible. If you find it difficult to stay without water and other fluids for 36 hours at a stretch, minimise your water (fluid) intake on this day.
You may not get 100% relief in 48 hours in case you could not stay without drinking water on day 2.
But repeating Day 1 and Day 2 every week will give 100% relief in a month or so.
Thereafter every month repeat day 1 and day 2.
As things progress – You may repeat day 1 and day every time there is change in the temperature of more than 10 degree centigrade.
An Interesting story
I was discussing my experiences of hydration/ dehydration with a group of yoga instructors. During the course of discussions the yoga instructors mentioned that they suffer from acidity in a big way.
I was surprised. I could not answer. But I kept looking for an answer.
Later I found an answer to the acidity problem of yoga instructors.
Yoga has some breathing exercises. During these breathing exercises CO2 is exhaled. CO2 is slightly acidic.
When a person starts yoga, he feels over all improvement. Most of the well to do people have acidic build up in their body. By doing breathing exercises, the acid load of the body starts reducing.
In few months the person recovers from acidic body. Now his body becomes too alkaline.
The acidity problem is faced when there is acid build up or alkaline build up.
Later I asked the yoga instructor
to stop drinking water for 36 hours.
I also suggested him to stop yoga for 7 days.
After 36 hours he was completely cured of his acidity.
To me – cure means – no restrictions of meals. Once a person is cured of acidity he can eat any oily thing in any quantity.
Not that I recommend such poor choices of food. But that is the meaning of cure to me. And one must indulge in such things once in a while.
