Home remedies for gastric pain in chest

Home remedies for gastric pain in chest: GERD, Acid Reflux, & Gastritis

Before I write about the for the home remedies for the gastric pain in the chest, let me break up this blog post into the following:

  • What is the gastric pain
  • Why is it felt in the chest?
  • What are the possible home remedies
  • Which home remedy is easier and more effective

So let us go through these topics one by one

 What is the gastric pain?

Gastric pain is a vague term and can refer to any pain arising from the gastric (stomach) area. These days this commonly refers to the pain of gastritis or the Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). However, some may also refer it to the gastric/peptic or duodenal ulcer pain or discomfort. 

Why is gastric pain felt in the chest?

The gastric pain which is felt in the chest is usually the pain occurring due to the Gastroesophageal reflux. The acidic contents of the stomach are pushed into the esophagus which lies behind the sternum in the chest and therefore chest pain occurs, mimicking the heart disease pain or the pain arising from the big blood vessel, the aorta. 

A word of caution: Since the pain arising from the GERD and heart and aortic diseases is very much similar and is felt in more or less same area, it is very important to get it properly diagnosed before initiating home remedies for GERD (gastric pain in the chest). 

Home remedies for the gastric pain in chest or heartburn 

Having excluded all serious causes of the pain in chest and diagnosed that the pain is due to gastroesophageal reflux or common gastritis, it can be managed better by home remedies. 

The measures that can be taken at home include taking smaller portions of meals more often, avoiding meals late in the evenings, avoiding to eat or drink things that make the gastric pain in chest worst, e.g., coffee, alcohol, spicy food, etc. Avoiding to wear tight clothes, especially around the tummy area, sleeping with head raised up about eight inches, relaxing, living within normal weight, not smoking, etc can be helpful. However, what I want to emphasize is the fact that if you follow all these lifestyle techniques and add one more thing to it, it is highly likely that you can control the symptoms of the gastric pain in the chest. This one additional thing is the Siberian Pine Nut Oil. The Siberian Pine Nut Oil has been found effective not only in the cases of gastric pain in chest or heartburn but also the peptic and duodenal ulcers as adjuvant food therapy.

So let us now try to understand how and why the Siberian pine nut oil helps overcome the gastric pain of the heartburn

We don't know all details of how the traditional remedies work. Only a few factors are known and these are mentioned here. There may be other constituents in the Siberian Pine Nut Oil that may also be responsible for healing the heartburn.

  • It contains a lot of polyunsaturated fatty acids which are helpful in these gastric problems
  • Linoleic Acid (Vitamin F) and Vitamin E are found in the oil. Linoleic acid is said to increase the levels of PGE2 which balances the acid production and build up the mucus lining which helps prevent further acid production. Vitamin E, on the other hand, is a good antioxidant and helps by virtue of this property.

There are other traditionally known benefits of the oil. These include good effects on the general health, beneficial effects on the ulcers of stomach and duodenum, cholecystitis, chronic pancreatitis, chronic fatigue, mental performance, better metabolism, especially lipid metabolism, (cholesterol), good effects on eyesight and hearing,  cold and flu viruses, good effects on osteoporosis, digestion, and on the skin.

How to take the oil?

Usually, one tablespoon is consumed three times a day 30 to 60 minutes before meals, for a minimum three to four weeks duration.
