Acid reflux is at epidemic proportions. Today, so many young people have this serious disease. Extreme cases of acid reflux can cause ulcers and many other conditions that lead to situations of prolific bleeding. An ulcer or a problem with the esophagus can result in death. The colon, the liver, and the kidneys may become involved, as well. It is a serious disease that may require some effort to resolve. It is always better to look for a natural cure for most diseases rather than to take prescription medications. Many medicines have serious side effects that may only compound the problem.
There are any number of natural remedies that can be tried before resorting to medication. Many people have tried many different remedies. Some work for some people and not for others. It pays to stick with the process of trial and error until a natural remedy is found.
? A very good remedy is ? tsp. of baking soda to make a tea. Try honey and lemon it to make it very palatable.
? Vinegar, honey and lemon are great and may possibly work for some.
? 3-4 natural almonds chewed very well every morning makes the body alkaline. It is said to be better than an apple a day.
? An apple a day or apple juice helps to create alkalinity.
? Grapefruit juice is an acid that creates alkalinity in the body.
? Anise is a good remedy for some people.
? Drink more water.
? There is an on-going debate about milk, yet it is still mentioned in the literature.
? Go for a brisk walk. Exercise creates alkalinity and releases endorphins, which are the body?s natural pain killer.
The remedies for acidity also work to clear the common cold. It takes an acid environment for excessive bacteria and viruses to live in.
The eating habits of the young and the old alike are true culprits in acid reflux. Kids are eating more and more junk food and drinking large quantities of cola. Some adults are, also. Poor habits and obesity contribute to the problem.

An alternative treatment for acid reflux should address more than the symptoms of acid indigestion, heartburn and acid reflux.
Nothing ever happens at the symptom level, change is ONLY possible at the causal level.
Before you go running off to your drugs store to get an Over-The -Counter (OTC) antacid, you may find it in your best interest to see a doctor.
I know heartburn doesn?t sound like something to see a physician or licensed health practitioner over . . . but it is.
Millions of acid reflux sufferers make the mistake of treating their acid reflux symptoms as if they were caused from too much stomach acid. When they do that, they risk the danger of simple heartburn symptoms escalating into life threatening health conditions like acid rebound, GERD and throat cancer.
Fact is most people actually suffer from acid reflux symptoms because of quite the opposite reason; they have too little stomach acid.
The best thing you can do is make sure you are treating your own acid reflux symptoms correctly.
When your acid reflux, heartburn and acid indigestion symptoms are really persistent you will want to request that you have a stomach acid test.
Acid indigestion, heartburn and acid reflux are some of the most mis-treated and mis-diagnosed health problems in America.
The drug companies depend on you and your doctor believing the Direct-to-Consumer advertising spiels you?ve been bombarded with all your life.
It?s vital you question everything, even if your doctor tells you something is true, verify it. Never be afraid to ask questions and if you don?t feel you got a good answer, then get 2 and 3 medical opinions. Learn to investigate acid reflux and other health issues yourself. If you do your due diligence, you?ll naturally ask better questions about how to best treat your acid reflux.
The treatment for increasing your stomach acid and your ability to properly digest foods is totally different then the treatment for acid reflux caused from lack of digestive acids and enzymes.
Your stomach as well as your entire enteric digestive system depends on you choosing a treatment that will provide adequate nutrition. The right eating habits can help, however if your ability to digest your food down into molecular sized nutrients is inhibited ?from lack of stomach acid and acid reflux symptoms . . . eating right may only be part of the right treatment for your acid reflux symptoms.

If you?re looking for an acid reflux treatment home remedy, try not to get frustrated by the sheer volume of potential things you can try. Thousands of people suffer from acid reflux on any given day, and there are almost as many ways to naturally get rid of the condition.
Acid reflux happens when there is a buildup of pressure and acid in your stomach that causes those acids to be allowed out of your stomach and up into your esophagus. The tissues there are sensitive and susceptible to damage, which causes pain. In some cases, the reflux can make it all the way to your mouth, leaving a bitter taste, generally accompanied by a hiccup or burp ? which may not be the most attractive condition to be dealing with after a meal.
So what can you do about it, besides reaching for antacids or pills? Plenty of things.
If you suffer from this condition on a fairly regular basis, you may want to consider a few lifestyle changes in order to rid yourself of the problem without medications.
- First, eat smaller meals over a longer period of time rather than a few large meals during the day. Eating more than your stomach can handle causes it to stress out, and respond by frantically producing acid to break down the excess amount of food rapidly. This causes pressure to build and inevitably results in reflux. So just eat less, more. Snack more often and eat smaller meals at breakfast, lunch and dinner so that you?re still getting the same amount of food, it?s just stretched over a longer period of time.
- Second, remove any excessive stressors from your life. Stress is known to cause heartburn, and dealing with it more effectively can help you feel the burn a little less frequently. So, schedule regular massages, or start seeing a therapist who will teach you techniques for dealing with stress. You could also take up Yoga or meditation, start exercising regularly or any number of other things that help you to relax. Making relaxation a priority now will help you maintain a healthy digestive tract later.
- Third, keep track of what you?re eating, and subsequently avoid foods that you identify as heartburn triggers. Things that are hard to digest like whole milk, spices like garlic, vegetables like onions, and stimulants like caffeine can all be potential heartburn triggers.
If you?re looking for more reactive holistic solutions, there are plenty of things to try.
- Ginger, whether candied or tea, is very effective at soothing acid reflux.
- A glass of water can help to wash acids through the digestive system, and keeps them from settling in, causing pain.
- Apple cider vinegar helps to neutralize acids. Just a couple of tablespoons added to a glass of water can be an effective solution.
- A quarter of a cup of aloe vera juice can also help to relieve acid reflux. Make sure to distinguish between aloe vera gel and juice though. Gel is not meant for consumption and can cause a host of other digestive problems. Only consume aloe vera juice.

A remedy for your acid reflux is simply the most natural solution. As you already know all too well, conventional medicine has no cure for your acid reflux.
Millions of people are being sucked into the vicious circle of taking Over-The-Counter drugs for their acid reflux symptoms, only to discover later that their acid reflux has only gotten worse.
Still trusting the convenience of these Over-The-Counter gimmicks, millions more people end up being persuaded to even try stronger ?Behind-The-Counter? drugs.
Unfortunately it?s a scientific fact that these stronger chemical gimmicks simply lead them down the medical rabbit hole even deeper. It?s common knowledge to most doctors that proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are responsible for acid rebound.
Of course these powerful antacids have a purpose, but only in emergency situations. Using PPIs is a tell tale sign that you should have sought out a natural remedy for your acid reflux, rather than having tried to cover the symptoms in the first place.
More than 15,000,000 TUMS were recently recalled because people found they were contaminated with metal filings and saw dust.
I?m curious how many people are suffering from ?mysterious? digestive system issues because they?ve unknowingly been swallowing metal shavings and who knows what else.
How can you undo that?
Antacids simply cover symptoms; they do not even claim to be a natural remedy . . . so why do millions of people fall for it?
The same reason people smoke cigarettes, eat fast food and drink pop?advertising. Billions of dollars in profits are turned back into the great deception of the American public. It?s a free-for-all marketing circus out there and YOUR HEALTH is paying the highest cost.
Seeking natural remedies isn?t practicing medicine; it?s using real science to get to the bottom of any problem.
Your acid reflux is a health problem triggered by something ?unnatural.? Running to the pharmacist for more ?unnatural? factors to complicate your health, clearly isn?t the right answer.
A natural remedy is the natural solution for your acid reflux, or anything else you may be suffering from.
Once you go all the way down the medical rabbit hole, the only way out seems to be to go deeper, but remember, that?s how your acid reflux got worse in the first place.
Don?t be fooled by the intimidating mask of medicine. Behind it is one goal: making money. Natural remedies don?t build global empires because there is no return customer . . . they move on to live long healthy lives.
Take care of the cause of your acid reflux and the real remedy will come to you naturally.
