The Herbal Herbal Remedy for Acid Reflux

Cure acid refluxes naturally with a few simple steps and small adjustments to your lifestyle. Often referred to as heartburn or GERD it can cause relatively minor irritations like:
  • Coughs
  • Throat infections
  • Sinus problems
However, in more serious cases it can lead to esophageal cancer.
If you suffer regularly with acid reflux and you are taking prescribed medication firstly consult your doctor, this may well be a side effect of your prescription.
Over-the-counter antacids are fine in small doses, but they contain quantities of sodium and aluminum which are linked to high blood pressure and Alzheimer’s disease, prolonged use can also cause significant mineral imbalances in the body. So given the side effects of the manufactured antacids, curing acid reflux naturally is an easy to follow, harmless process.

Natural Acid Reflux Cures 

Natural acid reflux cures are a safer way of controlling the discomfort of this problem, the methods listed below are well worth considering.
  • Wash and juice a raw potato, include the skin, mix with an equal amount of water, drink 2-3 times per day.
  • Increase your intake of probiotic supplements.
  • Avoid overeating, this puts unnecessary pressure on the lower esophageal sphincter muscle which controls the flow of food into the stomach and prevents the stomach acid flowing back into the esophagus.
  • Mix 2 tablespoons of raw apple cider vinegar (ACV) in a glass of warm, not hot, water, make sure the ACVhas mother floating in it, a natural cob-web like substance packed with enzymes and goodness, it should be unfiltered and unpasteurized, not the clear type that you can buy from supermarkets. Sip this drink throughout
  •        your meal.
  • Avoid citrus fruits and drinks, tomatoes, onions, highly processed and spicy foods, sugar and products that contain caffeine.
  • Try eating the last meal of the day at least three hours before going to bed.
  • Stop smoking. Tobacco irritates the digestive system.

  • Mix a tablespoon of bicarbonate of soda (not baking soda) in half a cup of water and drink
  • Drink chamomile tea
  • Deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) either in powder form or chewable tablets.
