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.

Foods To Prevent Acid Reflux

To prevent acid reflux you need to avoid certain foods, but also keep in mind when you eat, how much you eat and what foods you mix can also have a huge harmful effect or benefit as well.

  • Never eat until your full. Eat more often, but smaller portions.
  • Always have your last meal at least 3 hours before lying down or sleeping.
  • Never drink while you eat, it dilutes your stomach’s digestive juices. When you learn to drink ‘good’ naturally alkaline water between meals (about an hour before eating) you’ll digest food better and eat less.
  • Try not to eat your carbs before your meats. Your stomach needs to use full strength stomach acid on the meat and fat first.

To prevent acid reflux never eat fruit with your meals, eat fruit in-between.

Some of these foods listed won’t trigger your acid reflux symptoms when eaten alone, like lemon in your water, but will when eaten with other food groups.

Everyone is different, different stress levels, different habits and tastes . . . everything you do needs to be re-evaluated if you really want to prevent or cure your acid reflux issues.

Here are some of the foods you’ll avoid preventing acid reflux:

  • Fruit: Orange juice, lemonade, grapefruit juice, cranberry juice and tomato juice (most of these have high levels of high fructose or refined salt that make acid reflux worse.
  • Vegetables: Fried foods and raw onions.
  • Meat: Ground beef, marbled steak, chicken nuggets, chicken wings.
  • Dairy: Sour cream, milk shakes, ice cream, cottage cheese, pasteurized milk.
  • Unsprouted grains: Mac and cheese, pasta with sauce.
  • Drinks: Alcohol, coffee, tea, sweetened soft drinks
  • Fats/oils: Hydrogenated-trans fats, saturated animal fats, canola oil, vegetable oil, corn oil.
  • Sweets: High fat baked goods, brownies, milk chocolate, doughnuts, corn chips, potato chips.

Foods that do not promote an alkaline pH on your body will produce an acidic pH, which is bad for your entire body. To prevent acid reflux try to eat more raw vegetables and eat less meat, try grass fed meats they have less saturated fats.

Images of Gastritis

It?s nearly impossible to share images of gastritis without a biopsy, but one form of damage caused from gastritis can be seen? through x-ray and sometime endoscopic inspection.

This disease is called M?n?trier disease (also known as hyperplastic hypersecretory gastropathy,

This image of gastritis is from a distortion of the mucus producing tissue, or mucosal folds, causing them to enlarge making the stomach lining look more like the ridges on the surface of the brain.

Imagine the gastritis irritating the normally protective mucosa lining trigger? the cells to make more mucus to the point that the tissue often becomes ulcerated.

Picture these glands eventually wasting away, losing water, minerals and a protein called albumin. This image of gastritis gone out of control ends up causing an albumin deficiency. Albumin is the most abundant protein in human blood plasma and makes up about half of your blood plasma.

So now visualize gastritis destroying half of the protein production of your blood cells . . . not a pretty picture is it?

Now this image of gastritis has really gotten worse because without half the albumin protein in your blood your body can?t maintain proper water pressure, transport thyroid? hormones or fat soluble fatty acids to the liver, flush out (bilirubin) waste from bile and urine, bind calcium ions, balance pH and prevent the breakdown of folic acid.

So as you can see the image of a healthy body can be totally destroyed by gastritis.

The image of this type of gastritis disease is so severe that the only treatment other than a high plant based protein diet, is to have a gastrectomy, which means either part of the stomach or the entire stomach must be surgically removed.

Picture living without a stomach!

High resolution images of chronic gastritis through endoscopic examination reveals that gastritis is associated with helicobacter pylori. This is the ulcer triggering bacteria that has been shown to be successfully cured with alkaline water.

You can avoid images of gastritis and ulcers by avoiding chronic dehydration, also known as biological draught.

It?s common for health practitioners to mistakenly treat the many symptoms of biological draught as a disease like gastritis or peptic ulcers. There is real science that proves that proper alkaline hydration can protect your body?s internal terrain. This terrain, refers to the balanced alkaline pH of your cells and tissue.

The only thing that should have an acidic pH in your body is your stomach acid. Gastritis images may very well be caused from a simple reversal of proper pH. This causes the opposite effect? of a balanced pH and wrecks havoc on your stomach, liver, blood cells, heart, endocrine system and more.

The image of gastritis means the stomach is lacking its normal acid pH, ultimately causing it to have to be removed.

So follow your gut feelings and learn to help prevent dis-ease by staying hydrated with alkaline water rich in ?ionic? sea minerals and eat plenty of plant-based proteins.
