your body’s inability to produce as muchHCl or which the hydrochloric acid in your stomach is it needs to digest the food andto maintain that homeostasis of the gut.

So number one, I want you to start eating unprocessed foods, foods from the farm, foodfrom the land not from some plant that they put in boxes that sits on shelves for yearswith the stability life this to the roof. Got to start eating healthy foods from thefarmers market, from whole foods preferably organic if you can get your hands on it. Numbertwo, probiotics. Your gut bacteria changes every 20 minutes. 80% of your immune systemcomes from your gut, 90% of the serotonin which is that happy chemicals produced inthe gut so you wanna make sure that you’re
feeding yourself good probiotics as well asprebiotics, restricted starches. Things that like the celery, of this, feeds that goodbacteria coz you are not what you eat, you are what you are what your bacteria eats inyour body which produces that healthy colony. Number three is fermented foods. Fermentedfoods are absolutely amazing and they help feed that good bacteria in your gut. Numberfour is high quality sea salt. Celtic sea salt has over 88 trace minerals in it or youcould get pink Himalayan Sea salt and it’s absolutely amazing for you. I want you tostart eliminating food triggers. Food triggers are things that we talked about with our coachingstudents that can trigger allergies such as
sugar, dairy, wheat, alcohol, caffeine aremore common food triggers so I want you to start eliminating those as well. Number sixis one of my favorite things, we made a blog post it was 99 things apple cider vinegaris good for. Yeah 99 things apple cider vinegar is good for. This stuff is absolutely amazing!I try to get one or two tablespoons a day, mixed up a little bit of water.

It’s gonna helpbuild more HCl in your stomach so that you
can digest the food. Alright so those arethe six things, we’re now gonna make a juice recipe.

Ep102 Singing Problems and Acid Reflux You May Have it without Knowing
This tutorial talks about two forms of acid reflux. One kind you feel as heartburn and you knowwhen you have it and why. The other reflux is common but you don’tknow you have it. However, it can also cause problems with yourvoice and singing. Inside this tutorial you’ll learn how to recognizethe effects of reflux on your vocal cords and what steps to take to protect your voice! Hi, I’m Chuck Gilmore with Power To Sing. I have reflux.
But it’s not the heartburn kind. That’s called GERD or Gastroesophageal RefluxDisease. It hurts. You know it when you have it. It burns in your chest and throat. You take Tums or Pepto Bismol for relief. It can fry your vocal cords with the acidfrom your stomach. That’s not the reflux I have.
I have a silent kind of reflux. I didn’t even know I had it until I injuredmy vocal cords when singing sick. The ENT scoped my cords and found noduleson the false cords and moderate reflux. He said the reflux was making it difficultfor the nodules to heal because acid was irritating my injury. Yuck. My kind of reflux was silent to me becauseI didn’t feel heartburn. It’s called LPR which stands for LaryngopharyngealReflux.
Here are the causes, symptoms and treatmentoptions. I’m quoting from the Cleveland ‘sonline information found here. â€œAcid made in the stomach travels up theesophagus (swallowing tube). When that stomach acid gets to the throat,it is called laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR).â€� â€œAnyone can get LPR, but it shows up moreoften as people age. People who have certain dietary habits, peoplewho consistently wear tighter fitting or binding clothing, people who are overweight, and peoplewho are overstressed are more likely to have laryngopharyngeal reflux.â€�
â€œThere are many symptoms of LPR, all ofwhich relate to sensations in the throat. Fifty percent of people with LPR do not havesymptoms of heartburn or an upset stomach. When there are symptoms, they include:Mild hoarseness Sensation of a lump in the throatNeed to clear the throat Sensation of mucous sticking in the throatandor postnasal drip Chronic coughDifficulty swallowing Sore throatRed, swollen, or irritated voice box Personally, I was always clearing my throat.
I always had post nasal drip. I also had congestion in my chest even whenI didn’t have a cold. Periodically I had soreness here for seeminglyno reason. When I sing with LPR my cords feel thick andheavy. Everything feels harder to do. So I try and control it. What I really don’t want is the acid toburn my vocal cords and cause permanent hoarseness, permanent damage.
