If you don’t want to consume boatloads of prescription drugs (and believe me, you are not alone in this), despair not. In this article I am gonna tell you about three awesome natural acid reflux treatments you can have!
Herbs: A lot of people prefer herbs over any other kind of medications because herbs are the most natural form of treatment available for just about ANY kind of disease. The main advantage of these herbs is that they don’t come with side effects (unlike the prescription medications). The disadvantage is that it can take time before you see any kind of solid results with them – good or bad. In other words, in order to know whether the herbal treatment you are using is really working or not, you will have to wait for at least a couple of months!
As you can see, herbal treatments are meant for those who are extremely patient. If you fall in this category then try out flax, licorice, slippery elm, wild yam, meadowsweet and calendula for your acid reflux. Among these herbs, licorice should not be taken by those who suffer from high blood pressure or are prone to heart diseases, as this herb can make your situation much worse.
If you are someone who is prone to heartburn and indigestion, peppermint is definitely a good remedy as it can relieve you of both by virtue of just a single drop of peppermint in your throat! Likewise, ginger is another natural herb which can cure you of both indigestion and nausea.
Chamomile is an herb which is rich in calcium. As a matter of fact, acid reflux is often caused due to poor digestion; this is where the chamomile herb comes to rescue you! For centuries it is being used for aiding in stomach digestion and lowering stomach acid level. You simply cannot fail with this treatment.
Lavender is one herb which is quite well known for the way it heals our body in numerous different ways. One of its healing properties is that it relieves a person of stomach acid. Thus, lavender is also a good natural acid reflux treatment which you should try out.
Fruits: Just like natural herbs, there are also various kinds of fruits and vegetables which aid in digestion and as such, relieve you of stomach acid and acid reflux. One of the reasons why you may be suffering from acid reflux is that your diet is rich in protein and that protein is not getting digested properly. If you are unable to digest the protein, it can lead to acid reflux. Papaya is a fruit which contains both the pepsin and betaine digestive enzymes; as such, it ensures that the undigested protein is fully digested so that your stomach remains acid free; you should take papaya along with your regular meals. Pineapple is yet another digestive treatment rich in the enzyme called bromelain.
Lemons are excellent aids for digestion; you can increase their power even more by adding salt to them.
Healthy Diet: Your diet is what makes or breaks your digestion. A diet that is free of caffeinated and carbonated beverages, citrus fruits, tomatoes, chocolate, alcohol etc., will be more conductive in ensuring the health of your stomach than an unhealthy diet. It is not like everyone who eats these foods would suffer from acid reflux, but these foods are often noted for being responsible for increasing the level of acidity ion a person’s stomach. Therefore, try to avoid these foods as much as possible.
No one said that it is not possible to cure acid reflux without the aid of expensive medications. This article is proof of the act that you can get rid of acid flex using some simple natural remedies, once and for all. Go ahead and try them, and best of luck too.
