Aloe Juice for Acid Reflux

Aloe has long been known to help with burns, however did you know aloe juice can help put out the internal flames of heartburn? Aloe juice for acid reflux is one of the many natural remedies that can be used to help relieve the pain of heartburn.

Aloe actually has a number of healing properties, and its enzymes help the body in many ways. Specifically when found in juice form, it can help calm the body?s production of stomach acid and return it to a more natural digestive cycle. The problem with reaching for antacids every time you experience acid reflux is they tend to eliminate all stomach acids, and the body does need some acids to naturally break down food and be able to absorb its nutrients. Aloe juice helps to naturally restore balance to the body and ease indigestion.

For frequent heartburn sufferers, prevention is often the key. So, to keep acid reflux at bay, try drinking a quarter of a cup of aloe juice 10 minutes before a meal. That way your body will be ready to receive and break down the food you throw at it.

It?s important to note though that aloe should only be consumed in juice form. It can be found at your local market or organic food store. Consuming aloe gel from a plant you may have in your home, or gel that?s meant to treat sunburns functions as a laxative and will cause diarrhea. Because of that, make sure you only use aloe gel for topical purposes.

Other natural remedies

Aloe juice isn?t the only thing that can help relieve acid reflux. There are a huge amount of things you can do to help relieve acid reflux without taking medications.

First of all, try drinking a cup of tea. Ginger and chamomile tea both have soothing properties and can help relieve heartburn pain, in addition to diluting acids and washing toxins through the digestive system that much faster.

Even a glass of water can accomplish this task easily. Similarly to tea, it will help wash damaging acids away, giving your stomach a chance to settle. If your heartburn is bad, try mixing your glass of water with a tablespoon or two of apple vinegar cider. This will help speed relief to the burning area.

Additionally, some people have found relief by simply consuming an apple. Something about the apple has compounds and enzymes that help relieve acid reflux. They weren?t kidding when they said an apple a day keeps the doctor away!

To keep heartburn away along with your quarter cup of aloe juice, don?t eat too close to bed time. This helps keep food and acids from creeping up into your esophagus where they don?t belong. If you happen to break this rule, try sleeping propped up a bit. Putting a pillow under your head will also help keep stomach acid down in your stomach, which lets you sleep soundly through the night. Additionally, don?t eat large meals. Smaller meals consumed on a more frequent basis help the digestive system deal with food and nutrients in smaller doses, rather than all at once, which can result in the overproduction of stomach acid.

Aloe juice for acid reflux is only one natural way to douse the flames of heartburn. For more on this and may other tips for relieving acid reflux, read The Reflux Remedy Report at The Report focuses solely on holistic heartburn remedies, and is sure to have a solution that will work for you!
