Curing Reflux and Colic

by Dr. Randy


Here are 6 simple steps you can take to cure your baby’s symptoms.

Colic or reflux is characterized by crying, spitting up after nursing, arching the back, rumbling tummy, and expulsion of gas. Symptoms tend to be worse in the evening, after eating, and when lying down. Often these symptoms begin two to three weeks after birth and can persist for several months or sometimes even longer.

The cause is usually a stressed digestive tract that has a hard time moving food through. When digestion is weakened, then food tends to get stuck or move back up into the esophagus. Your pediatrician may want to prescribe antacids or acid blockers, but these drugs are not especially effective and some babies have obvious side effects.
