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

Curing Acid Reflux

Curing your acid reflux and balancing your digestive and enteric systems is the same thing.

Acid reflux is simply a disorder that started with a basic digestive imbalance, which was allowed or sometimes encouraged to get worse.

Acid reflux is the same as heartburn and will lead to acid rebound if treated with Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs), instead of being addressed at the root cause.

Acid reflux can’t be cured by treating the symptoms. Only by addressing the root cause of your acid reflux can it ever be cured.

The physician’s job is to help you help the natural healing process along. At least that used to be the physicians goal . . . to first do no harm.

Bottom line is drugs do harm. Not only do toxins from drugs interfere with your kidneys to keep them inside your cells, drug treatments also discourage you from addressing the root cause of your acid reflux, or whatever you suffer from . . . delaying your cure and in most cases actually preventing your cure.

Curing acid reflux isn’t a mystery and it also isn’t a big business, in fact there is little if any money involved in curing your acid reflux.

You can’t patent natural cures, so there is no real marketplace for acid reflux cures.

Curing acid reflux is simply bad business because there is zero profit and no return customer.

On the other hand acid reflux drugs, designed to block acid reflux symptoms, are a huge and very profitable business.

The only person who benefits from you curing your acid reflux, heartburn and acid indigestion is you and your family.

Actually curing your acid reflux benefits your community indirectly as well by keeping healthcare costs very low.

Too bad treating your acid reflux is such a big business. If the acid reflux drugs weren’t so insanely profitable we would all enjoy affordable genuine healthcare through natural cures, instead of a very costly disease care management system.

Not curing your acid reflux harms you, harms your family and costs the community money, but the pharmaceutical companies feed off your acid reflux misery.

It’s no theory, it’s clearly a acid reflux conspiracy . . .the best thing you can do is get to the root of your acid reflux issues and cure it as soon as possible.

Homeopathic Cures for Acid Reflux

Get Rid of GerdThe condition acid reflux, commonly referred to as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), has a number of symptoms. If these symptoms persist, this can lead to scarring of the esophagus lining, irritation, inflammation, ulcers and even cancer of the esophagus.


Symptoms of acid reflux can vary from person to person.

  • Heartburn: Heartburn is a main symptom of acid reflux. A burning feeling in your chest and throat can signal that you have heartburn. Heartburn that takes place three times a week or more is a sign of GERD.
  • Dysphagia: Difficulty swallowing is the hallmark of dysphagia. Those suffering from dysphagia feel as though food is stuck in their throat or neck.
  • Regurgitation: Vomiting or constant burping are characteristics of regurgitation. When acid refluxes and makes its way to the mouth, this can leave a sour taste in your mouth.
  • Nausea: Having an upset stomach can point toward acid reflux. Feeling uneasy or unsettled in your stomach can be a reflection of the stomach acids that have exited to the esophagus.
  • Sore Throat/Hoarseness: Neck and throat irritation is common and can cause you to have a sore throat or become hoarse.


There is more than just one cause for acid reflux. Most of the common causes have the same negative effect on the lower esophageal sphincter or LES. The LES is the entrance point for foods after you chew and swallow. When the food goes down the esophagus, it must cross through the LES to reach the stomach. An LES that is weakened does not effectively safeguard your esophagus from coming into contact with gastric acid and bile.

  • Alcohol Consumption: Drinking alcohol can irritate the esophagus and increase the burning sensation caused by heartburn.
  • Smoking: Smoking diminishes the strength of the LES which is needed to block stomach acid.
  • Hiatal Hernia: A shift in stomach and esophagus placement can make the LES weak and allow acid to reflux.
  • Pregnancy: Extraordinary hormone levels and a compressed stomach can cause acid to reflux

Home Remedies

There are several nontraditional cures for acid reflux that consist of natural ingredients.

  • Ginger tea or root is great for naturally absorbing stomach acid and has a soothing effect.
  • Apple cider vinegar, although it has an acidic pH on its own, is not acid forming once digested. Apple cider vinegar has an alkaline quality after it is broken down in the stomach.
  • Fennel seed is a natural herb that aids the digestive process by regulating stomach spasms that may contribute to GERD.
  • Aloe consumed as a juice is great for acid reflux because it relieves heartburn and settles the stomach.
  • Papaya contains an enzyme that naturally helps to digest your food, preventing the stomach from having to produce a lot of gastric acid.
  • Drinking water frequently can help to neutralize stomach acid as well.

Handling your acid reflux can be a challenge if you don’t have all the tools for treating this disease. For more information on homeopathic cures for acid reflux, review the Reflux Remedy Report or visit today.

Symptoms of Acid Reflux Disease

Acid reflux symptoms are your body/mind’s attempt to communicate with you to help prevent a possible disease from happening.

When you allow a state of stress, discomfort and dis-ease to consume your every waking moment it’s only because you stopped reading the writing on the wall.

Taking drugs to cover-up your body/mind’s signs and symptoms is no different than white-washing over that writing on the wall. The writing appeared upon this “proverbial wall” so you would take heed and pay attention to a message.

Symptoms of acid reflux disease are the same as clues to help you find the cause of your suffering. Think of that Intelligent Design which is your miraculous “biological you” and its having a communication issue with the distracted “worldly you.”

The worldly you is the part of you that’s kept distracted by all the clamor and clatter your 5 senses are constantly picking up from your “outer” environment. The symptoms of your acid reflux are a cry for help, a plea for you to pay attention to the goings on “within” you.

. . . So you’re too busy to listen to your own body/mind trying to tell you not to eat so late at night, trying to tell you certain foods don’t mix well, trying to tell you it’s on your side.

When you pop antacids to relieve your acid reflux symptoms you are telling your body/mind to shut-up. This isn’t a healthy relationship to have with your miraculous healing self.

It’s exactly this type of bad behavior that leads to your acid reflux symptoms getting worse until it’s a problem or disease.

If you had a crying baby would you put duct-tape over its mouth or would you care for it and find out why it is crying?

Silly question isn’t it?

Of course you would care for the child and if it didn’t cry out you would have never known it was time to change its diaper, feed it or just give the child some genuine love.

Overcoming your symptoms of acid reflux is easy when you use this same genuine care.

Acid reflux symptoms are your body/minds way of crying out to you and popping antacids and other chemicals to hide those symptoms is like duct-taping the crying baby.

Why are we taught to be so insensitive to our own needs?

It’s been said before that if you can’t love yourself first you can’t offer love to another. This is “the secret of the miraculous power of healing” . . . it’s called love thyself. It’s the best way to get to know you!

As you already know, you can only give what you already have . . .

Acid reflux symptoms are a cry for love. When you love someone you are willing to listen to them, right?

So why ignore your acid reflux symptoms? Why would you want to neglect the cry for help? Your inner intelligence is what keeps your 60,000,000,000 cells in the harmonious concert we call life, all it needs is your love and attention . . .

Obviously the cause of your dis-ease is the same cause of your acid reflux symptoms.

The cause of any disease is rooted in your losing touch with your inner own healing voice . . .

So be willing to listen to your own inner healer and perhaps one day you will be able to do more than help heal yourself of acid reflux symptoms and disease . . . perhaps someday you will help remind someone else they have the power to choose healing too.

You were born to heal,
