Acid Reflux Disease Home Remedies

Acid reflux can cause frequent and painful heartburn symptoms in people who suffer from this debilitating condition. Nearly 20% of Americans suffer from this persistent condition that affects sleep, mood, nutrition, and overall quality of life. Doctors prescribe expensive drugs or offer invasive surgeries to help solve these problems, but these costly options frequently fail to solve the problem. Fortunately there are a number of acid reflux home remedies that can help ease these problems. A summary of some of these safe and inexpensive home remedies is included below.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Those with acid reflux may strongly object to the idea of consuming vinegar. Indeed, it does seem that vinegar would be more likely to exacerbate heartburn problems. However, apple cider vinegar has unique properties that make it valuable in the treatment of acid reflux and heartburn. It contains certain enzymes that stimulate the digestive process, reducing the production of stomach acids. When purchasing apple cider vinegar to use for acid reflux treatment, it is important to purchase raw, organic vinegar, as more processed varieties may no longer contain the necessary enzymes. To use this remedy, simply add a tablespoon of vinegar to a glass of water and sip throughout any meal.

Ginger Root

Ginger root has many valuable medicinal qualities. In addition to absorbing stomach acid and decreasing nausea, ginger root may also help to relieve stress. Ginger root can be purchased fresh or dried in any grocery store. Simply adding it to foods may help relieve problems. For more potent application, ginger tea or dried ginger capsules can be purchased at a health food store. Taking the capsules or sipping a cup of this tea after dinner can help relieve heartburn symptoms.

Fennel Seeds

Fennel seeds are another home remedy that can be found in any grocery store. This lovely smelling herb is frequently consumed after meals in India. This tradition may stem from the fact that fennel seeds soothe the stomach and reduce gastrointestinal muscle spasms. Chewing a handful of these seeds after meals is a tasty way to reduce acid production and stomach pains.

Anise and Lavender Tea

Consuming a soothing combination of anise and lavender tea may help reduce stomach acid production. To prepare this hot drink, simply mix equal parts of aniseed and dried lavender. Add a teaspoon of this mixture to two cups of boiling water and steep for three to five minutes. Use a piece of cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer to filter the herbs from the water. Natural sweetener, such as honey or agave, may be added to the drink. Consuming eight ounces of this tea in the morning and evening may help to relieve negative acid reflux symptoms.

While acid reflux can be a painful and aggravating condition, there is no reason to stress about its treatment. Safe and easy to implement home remedies may be used alone or in combination to produce an effective treatment.
