Natural Acid Reflux Cures

If you’ve been suffering from acid reflux for a while you have likely tried every over the counter drug there is to rid yourself of the condition. There is little more inconvenient than eating just to have your body turn around and reject your food. It simply takes the joy out of eating altogether. You’d much rather ignore the impulse to eat if after every meal you experience a burning or nauseating sensation. It simply doesn’t seem worth it. You’ll be happy to know that there is something that can be done for your acid reflux that may not be found on the medicine aisle in your local drug store. There are other, more natural means and the great news is that you can find the cure for acid reflux right there in your kitchen. Check out this acid reflux breakdown below.

Here’s what happens when you experience acid reflux

In layman’s terms acid reflux disease is a condition that allows the acids and enzymes in your stomach to escape the stomach and make way to the esophagus where the acids then begin to burn the esophagus (which can ultimately ruin the esophagus lining) causing what is known as heartburn. You have a ring that is located at the top of your stomach, bottom of the esophagus. This ring is known as the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). The LES is responsible for closing immediately after food travels through it. Think of this as a gateway to the stomach. If the LES neglects to close acids can escape causing acid reflux.

What causes this to happen?

There are several known causes for acid reflux, each cause ranges from person to person. Generally, the causes for acid reflux reflect daily practices. For example, if you generally eat large meals or you lie down immediately after meals this can cause a malfunction or hyperactivity of your digestive system. This hyperactivity can often cause the acids in the body that are used to break down foods to escape the stomach which sets off the acid reflux. Try eating smaller meals several times a day. Smaller meals allow the body to break down food without being overworked so the acids remain calmed. Spicy foods, citrus, tomato, chocolate, mint and garlic are all acid reflux trigger foods so refrain from these foods as much as possible.

What can be done to naturally cure acid reflux?

The first step in curing acid reflux would be to consider lifestyle adjustments. If you are one who usually likes alcoholic or carbonated beverages, consider drinking water instead. Water is an awesome natural cure for acid reflux as it aids in digestion. Drink water before, during and after meals. Also, try baking soda.

Baking soda is a natural antacid. Add a tablespoon of baking soda to a glass of water and drink it down while the water fizzles. This has been known to cause immediate relief.

Apple cider vinegar is another good one. Add a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to a half glass of water, drink it before or after a meal and feel it work its magic.

These are a few cures that can be found in your kitchen. For more natural cures do not hesitate to visit refluxremedy.com.
