Is Acid Reflux Interrupting Your Sleep?

You have heard over and over that you should try to achieve 8 hours of sleep every night to avoid a variety of disease conditions.  Lack of sleep is vitally important to protecting your brain from toxicity, damage, and even debilitating diseases like Alzheimer’s.  There was a time when I had a good deal of trouble getting enough sleep because my tummy just didn’t feel good.  I was not aware until my doctor told me that many people do not even know that they may have acid reflux and just think they are having trouble sleeping but don’t know why.

During the daytime when your brain is already overactive accomplishing everyday tasks, it is difficult for your brain to do the repair that it can while you are sleeping.  During your sleep, the brain pumps spinal fluid in your brain to “wash it out” circulating the waste and eventually flushing it out through the liver.  The plaque-building protein that is stored in the brain that is related to Alzheimer’s disease is called amyloid-beta and is removed during your 8 hours of sleep.

Acid reflux can be caused by your intestinal bacterial balance is beginning to spin out of control. In our intestines we need enough good bacteria called, “pro-biotics,” to balance out the bad bacteria.  We all have trillions of bacteria in our intestinal tract.  A good, healthy ratio of good to bad bacteria should be 9 to 1 but few of us in this day have a ratio even close to that.

It is possible to increase your good and bad bacteria ratio by supplementing with a good pro-biotic supplement.  It must be a good one though because pro-biotic bacteria a very fragile and must be stabilized to be effective.  This is what I choose to use:  Pro-X10.  Whatever you decide on be sure to research the products for effectiveness.
