Acid Reflux Home Remedy

Sufferers from acid reflux disease will be the first to tell you that this condition is no piece of cake. Acid reflux can have a great effect on your social life, your work life and ultimately your livelihood. How inconvenient is it for food (an imperative source for life) to be seen as something to be feared. Many sufferers of acid reflux feel cursed at the very heart of the condition. Eating can cause pain and discomfort, but not eating can cause sufferers their lives. At first glance it appears to be a lose/lose situation. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be.

A little background on acid reflux: acid reflux, also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a disease that allows the acids and enzymes in your stomach which are used to break down foods to escape the stomach making way to the esophagus where it causes a burn known as heartburn. The acids making way to the esophagus is an indicator that the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), which is a ring of muscle at the entrance of the stomach isn’t closing all the way or is opening too often allowing the acid to escape. If this happens two or more times a week you are likely suffering from acid reflux disease.

Though it is a great inconvenience, to say the very least, acid reflux doesn’t have to be the end of the world. In fact, you can be a sufferer of acid reflux disease yet still live a healthy and happy life.

First you want to start by eliminate those things that may be acid reflux triggers. A huge trigger for acid reflux as well as other diseases is stress. Try to eliminate the stresses in your life as much as you can. Also, you may want to monitor your eating habits. Try eating smaller meals several times a day as opposed to taking on large meals. Large meals send the body into overdrive as the acids in the stomach attempt to break these meals down for proper digestion. Drink less carbonated drinks and opt instead for water. Water does an awesome job at aiding with digestion while stabilizing stomach acids.

Once you eliminate your acid reflux triggers you should experience a noticeable improvement in the condition. If there are lingering symptoms here are a few home remedies you may want to consider trying:

  • Baking Soda: Baking soda is a great natural antacid. Add a tablespoon of baking soda to a glass of water. The water should begin to fizzle. Drink that water down as it fizzles for instant relief.
  • Fennel seed: Take half a teaspoon of Fennel seeds and slowly chew the seeds after your meals. Fennel seeds contain Anethole which is known to suppress spasms of the stomach.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar: Apple Cider Vinegar is a good acid that helps to suppress the acid buildup in the stomach. Simply add 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to a glass of water and drink the concoction while eating your dinner.

Home Remedies for Acid Reflux

Millions of acid reflux sufferers are finding lasting relief by using home remedies. Unfortunately many of them didn’t make that a priority and after discovering that medical treatment of symptoms isn’t a cure.

Known as the Father of western medicine, Hippocrates said, “First Do No Harm.”

Since your acid reflux isn’t a drug deficiency, there’s no sense treating your acid reflux symptom with drugs then is it? If you follow the Hippocratic axiom then you would be looking for a home remedy first.

Nothing on the market is as time-tested as a home remedy. There’s a possibility of someone modifying an ancient home remedy, but generally nothing is new under the sun. Everything that we need cured, including your acid reflux, has been cured by a simple evidence-based, time tested ancient home remedy somewhere . . . including your acid reflux.

According to anthropologists home remedies for acid reflux have been around as long as homes and maybe even before that. Nomads and wandering tribesman learned about how to cure their acid reflux by chewing on select grasses, eating certain fruits and drinking special teas or even healing beers.

There is evidence that herbs and grains were fermented and carried in gourds, long before primitive civilizations were formed as a result of agriculture.

Today there is a sinking sense of feeling separated from natural things. It’s as if everything we have is denatured, from our food to our medicine . . . there was a time when food was medicine, and those were the days when home remedies were simple common sense.

Nowadays the first thing someone with acid reflux does is run to the drugstore to get a magic pill that was originally based on a home remedy. I guess you could say pharmaceuticals are ‘denatured’  home remedies, accept they don’t even deserve to be associated with home remedies because they are the opposite.

Fact is more than 106,000 people die from properly prescribe medicine every year in the US, no one dies from home remedies. That tells me that the best remedy is to avoid using any drugs unless you have to use them in an emergency and then only use them for a short time.

Acid reflux can be cured using home remedies; however there are other factors involved that only lifestyle changes can cure . . . so if you need to you can keep using a home remedy for your acid reflux as often as you need.

It’s always in your best interest to cure your acid reflux at the source . . . because otherwise you could be ignoring important signs of some other impending health issue. As always prevention of acid reflux is the best home remedy or cure.

Home Remedy for Heartburn

It’s interesting that you worded your Internet search that way, ‘Home remedy for heartburn.’ It tells me why you’re here and that it’s by no accident you are here reading this . . . you are finally taking charge of your health and that means starting with your heartburn.

Home Remedy for HeartburTruth is if you suffer from recurring heartburn and acid indigestion you do need to return ‘home’ for the remedy. Metaphorically speaking, home for your health means restoring harmony and that begins in your gut.

Scientists now know that your gut is actually your second brain. The same molecular messengers your brain makes are also made in your gut. This is where you’ll find your home remedy, somewhere between the vast wiring of your brain and your central nervous system is your enteric nervous system . . .this home base, where your immune system comes from, in your gut.

If you have recurring heartburn, you probably already know all the antacids in the world just don’t help; in fact for a lot of heartburn sufferers taking antacids can make things even worse.

A home remedy for heartburn is really anything that replenishes and soothes your enteric nervous system and you know as well as I, if your gut is happy you?re happy.

Funny how we don’t know what we had until we lose it, I guess that’s why we say, ‘There’s no place like home.’

Truth is people love to eat and by all rights we should, but the problem is the business of fast food has usurped that, they manipulated that pleasurable culinary necessity we call dining into some kind of abomination.

Fast foods that cause heartburn are nothing but refined sugars, salts and artificial additives that make you chemically dependent on these so-called food products, when in reality all they are is tasty chemicals.

Bottom line there is nothing out there like a home remedy. A home remedy for heartburn is simply returning to eating nutritious real foods.

You see, your heartburn really is a dis-ease of undernutrition.

Your gut needs plenty of ionic minerals, vitamins and enzymes fast food-stuff simply cannot deliver. Your heartburn remedy is all about returning home, home to do the right thing.

In a way your heartburn and its remedy is a story of the prodigal stomach. You’ve been experimenting with all the edible wonders of the world, good and bad, but mostly bad and now you’ve realized that you’ve lost touch with why you eat in the first place . . . your original gut instincts.

Nothing tastes better than food that provides the nutrients you need to feel healthy.

A full stomach is no match for a healthy gut. The real home remedy you’re looking for starts with you deciding you want to eliminate heartburn from your life forever.

Home remedies are a serious matter because they allow us to exercise our will to thrive . . . so address the root cause of your heartburn naturally and bring your health back home where you belong.

You were born to heal,
