Acid reflux

Acid reflux conditions are caused by caffeine, pregnancy, and fatty foods or spicy foods. Acid reflux is more frequent in people over the age of forty. Symptoms of acid reflux are similar to heartburn.
You feel a painful burning feeling in the esophagus. It develops in the chest and may swell to the neck or throat after a heavy meal, lifting, bending over, and lying down. Around seventy five percent of acid reflux patients experience this symptom at night.
 Our bodies does have its own mechanisms to lower the painful effects brought on by the refluxed acids. Your salivary glands found in the mouth. These glands produce saliva, and the saliva contains bicarbonate. As you swallow, the saliva containing bicarbonates passes through the esophagus and can neutralize acids.
 There are many over the counter medications that you can take to lesson the symptoms Acid reflux disease. If the condition keeps getting worse you should see you family doctor.

Studies have shown that most cases of reflux happen during daytime. You are usually on an upright position standing or sitting up. With the aid of gravity, acid reflux is minimized because the stomach contents are held back down. You can also try and eat salads or foods that are less spicy.

Here are some ideas on post surgery care.

   The first thing you need to do is keep an eye on the incision area. Usually there will be some slight bleeding in the area. When I had my gall blatter removed the incisions seeped for about a week after the surgery. You need to replace the bandages as needed when they absorb the fluids. Your doctor will have you apply an antibiotic ointment to prevent infection.
 You might see some redness around the incision this is normal. If the area becomes swollen and very red or painful contact your doctor. You should keep the area dry for 24 hours to prevent water getting into the stitches which might cause an infection. You can take a sponge bath instead of a shower to help keep the area dry. It is better to wear clothing that is loose fitting and white in color. Clothing dyes can cause infections if the dye gets into the incision. This is especially true if you have had foot surgery. You should wear white socks not colored ones.
  Depending on the type of surgery you should restrict activities such as lifting, straining,or sports. If the area is bothering you make sure to apply ice but make sure to keep the area dry.

If you are using paint removers

 If you are using paint removers, varnishes, make sure to use them outdoors. If indoors you need to be in a well ventilated area. When you clean your toilet bowl be careful not to spill the cleaner on your skin. Most toilet bowl cleaners contain hydrochloric acids which if it comes in contact with your eyes, nose or throat it can burn you.  Make sure to check the labels of furniture polishes. Some polishes contain petroleum distillates that can get into your lungs. Remember they have a pleasant odor so be careful not to inhale them. The propellants used in some spray cans can be harmful if inhaled. Propane and butane are found in air fresheners, polishes, and insecticides.
  If you use a housekeeper or maid make sure to check the chemical products they are using. Many of these products can stain clothes, carpets and furniture if not used correctly. Be careful when using bleach it can leave spots on colored carpeting and hard wood floors. If you are cleaning with any harsh chemicals make sure to remove your jewelry and wear rubber gloves.

 need to adjust your diet to a healthy diet with less fat intake. In many health studies the over
