Bile Reflux

Bile Reflux

Bile reflux happens when the bile acid from the stomach flow back into the stomach or esophagus. Biliary reflux is often confused as acid reflux. Though both kinds of illnesses have same symptoms, the pain they produce is in different parts of the abdominal area.  The esophagus is the part that connects your throat with the stomach. Bile acid is harmful to the esophagus because it can cause inflammation to the lining of the esophagus. Long term exposure to bile acid increases the risk of esophageal cancer. In addition, the esophagus will have sores and ulcers. The patient will feel painful when swallowing food. To reduce the pain, you must get medicine prescription from the clinic. Serious  conditions must be treated with surgery.

You can also treat this ailment using all natural remedies. A trip to the doctor is no longer the only option a sufferer has these days. More on “bile”: Bile is a type of fluid secreted by the liver to aid in fat digestion. After the liver produced it, it is stored in the gallbladder.  The function of bile is to get rid of old red blood cells from the body. Bile can also eliminate the toxins from your body. When you eat food that contains fat, the bile will be released through two small tubes. The bile will flow to the upper part of the duodenum intestine. As the bile enters into the stomach, the food will travel via the pyloric valve. The pyloric valve is the muscle located at the stomach outlet. Normally, the pyloric valve will only open slightly and close quickly to prevent this ailment. If the pyloric valve muscle is weak, the bile can easily flow backwashes and cause irritation on the stomach. If the bile flow back into the stomach, the person will suffer from gastritis. Gastritis happens as a result of inflammation of the stomach.

The bile can also flow back into the esophagus. This happens when the lower esophageal sphincter is not functioning properly. Malfunctioned esophagus sphincter cannot effectively block the bile from entering the esophagus. The lower esophageal sphincter prevents the bile from flowing into the esophagus when the stomach is digesting the food. Biliary reflux that takes place in esophagus can cause heartburn.  Bile reflux can be causes by a variety of complications that the patient is suffering including gastric surgery, peptic ulcers, and gallbladder surgery.

If you suffer from this condition, you will feel pain in the upper abdominal every now and then. In addition, you will feel excruciating pain in the chest. Heart burn is a condition that causes you to feel intense heat in your chest. The burning pain can spread to the throat and cause your mouth to have a sour taste.  You will experience nausea symptoms and feel like vomiting regularly.  Besides, you will cough hoarsely. Sometimes, the cough will produce blood. The blood you cough out is caused by the ulcer wounds in the esophagus. People that suffer from bile reflux will experience sudden weight loss for no reason. You should see your doctor and ask him to perform a full checkup if you suspect that you are suffering from biliary reflux. Using these remedies as your prevention techniques will help you rid yourself of biliary reflux.

. In some cases mild reflux can be treated with natural remedies, you can try things such as baking soda mixed with water, fresh ginger mixed with water and even vinegar mixed with water. Sucking on a peppermint can help temporarily relieve the symptoms of reflux in addition to providing fresh breath. Warm herbal tea drank in slow intervals will help tide you over until a more permanent relief option is available to you. I personally always try to avoid things such as spicy foods and overly fried foods as they have been known to cause flair ups. <body><a href="">Click here to go to</a>.</body>
