15 Natural Remedies for Heartburn & Severe Acid Reflux


Heartburn is something that most adults will
experience during their lifetime. It is characterized by
an uncomfortable burning sensation right behind the
breastbone that often times creeps up the throat,
and is a symptom more so than a disease. It is
caused by acid re ux, which occurs when the ring of
muscle that allows food into your stomach (the lower
esophageal sphincter, or LES) relaxes when it
shouldnt. The result is acid from your stomach goes
back up your esophagus, which then causes the
sensation of heartburn. Think about itits acid
burning your throatouch! Its actually possible to
have re ux without heartburn, but it is not possible
to have heartburn without re ux. While over-thecounter and prescription medications are available, if
you suer only from occasional heartburn, lifestyle
changes and heartburn home remedies may be the
route you want to take.

1. A spoonful of baking soda


A spoonful of sodium bicarbonate, or teaspoon-full to be exact, can help put an end to the
gnawing, burning, sensation of heartburn caused by acid re ux. Baking soda, as sodium
bicarbonate is more commonly known, can help your re ux and in turn help your heartburn
because it is a base substance. It has a pH higher than 7.0, and therefore neutralizes stomach
acid. Neutralizing the stomach acid means that if/when your LES decides to be lazy and acid
comes up your throat, you dont get burned.
You will need
-1/2 teaspoon or 1 teaspoon of baking soda
-a glass of fresh water

HEALTH REMEDIES

Directions
Mix either a teaspoon or 1 single teaspoon of baking soda into a glass of water that is no more
than 8 ounces. Give it a good stir and drink all of the mixture. You can repeat this as needed but
should not exceed seven teaspoon doses in a 24 hour period. Also, avoid using this as a
remedy for more than a week straight, as it is high in salt and can have side eects such as
swelling or nausea.

2. Soothe your stomach with aloe juice


Aloe is a plant used to soothe burns, and people often think of using it to help something like
sunburn, but it can do more than that. It may be able to help with heartburn too because it
reduces in ammation. This means when your tummy starts getting irritated and in amed, or
your esophagus is getting eaten away at, a nice glass of aloe vera juice may be just the thing to
help calm it down.

3. Chew gum
The Journal of Dental Research conducted a study that showed people with symptoms of
gastroesophageal re ux disease (GERD), or chronic heartburn, experienced relief when they
chewed a piece of sugar-free gum for 30 minutes after a meal. This is because chewing gum
stimulates the salivary glands, and increases the ow of saliva. Any acid that has built up in the
gut is diluted and washed away or cleared out more quickly. The clearance of acid then improves
the symptoms of GERD. It is possible that the same school of thought could be applied to
occasional heartburn as well. Its our regular saliva that we swallow that actually makes normal
bouts of re ux here and there completely painless.

4. Chin up (and dont lie down)


Heartburn tends to get worse at night, thanks to the fact that youre lying down when you sleep.
Gravity works against you, and its easier for the digested contents of your stomach to back up
into your esophagus, along with acid. Try elevating your head about 6 inches when you sleep by
placing bricks, books, or blocks under the legs at the head of your bed. You could also try a
wedge-shaped pillow under your mattress, but dont simply pile up extra pillows as its easy to
slip o of them at night. Dont lie down within 3-4 hours after eating, because lying down with a
full stomach makes stomach contents press harder against your lower esophageal sphincter.

5. How, what, and when


Watch how you eat: Dont inhale giant mouthfuls of food. Take smaller bites and eat slowly,
allowing your stomach time to digest and without giving it an excuse to pump out excess acid.
Watch what you eat: Youre probably aware that speci c foods trigger heartburn, usually foods
high in acid (tomatoes or citrus fruits, for example,) or spicy foods. Avoid these as best you can to
ward o

JOIN US

Watch when you eat: Dont eat within 3-4 hours before bed. Lying down puts more pressure on
your LES and increases the likelihood of acid sneaking through.

6. Get more acid


When you have acid burning your esophagus, it seems quite counterintuitive to ingest even more
acid. In many cases though, acid re ux is caused by having not enough acid in your stomach,
rather than having too much, as over-the-counter or prescription acid blockers imply (although
that can also be the case, among other factors.) It is the acid itself that tells the lower esophageal
sphincter to tighten and close o. If you dont produce enough acid, your LES is going to think its
no big deal to loosen up for a little bit. Then of course, you get a re ux of acid into your
esophagus. If you think this may be your case, try drinking some pure, raw, un ltered apple cider
vinegar to see if this prevents your re ux, or cuts it o.
You will need
-3 teaspoons or 1 tablespoon of raw un ltered apple cider vinegar
-6 to 8 ounces of fresh water
Directions
Mix 3 teaspoons, or up to 1 tablespoon, of apple cider vinegar into 6-8 ounces of fresh water, and
drink. You can do this before each meal (probably the most eective,) before bedtime, or 2-3
times during the day. If you feel is worsens your re ux, do not continue to ingest it. Too much
may also contribute to the problem.

7. Eat a banana or an apple


Bananas contain natural antacids that can act as a buer against acid re ux. If you want to try
out the simplest home remedies for heartburn rst, try letting a few bananas ripen up nicely and
eating one every day. Another option is to try an apple a day. Slice one up and eat it a couple of
hours before bedtime to relieve or prevent discomfort.

8. Make gingerroot tea


Gingerroot can help ease up a number of stomach woes, from nausea to acid re ux. Sipping a
cup of fresh tea about 20 minutes before a meal can help calm down your tummy and act as an
acid buer.
You will need
-3 quarter sized slices of gingerroot
-2 cups of water
http://everydayroots.com/heartburnremedies

6/34

15NaturalRemediesforHeartburn&SevereAcidReflux

Slice up 3 quarter sized pieces of gingerroot and simmer gently in 2 cups of water, covered, for
30 minutes. Remove the ginger pieces, or leave them in, pour into a glass, and drink all of it about
20 minutes before a meal.

9. Track your triggers


It takes time, energy, and dedication, but tracking what triggers your heartburn may be what
ultimately makes it go away in the end. Instead of going crazy with what you eat and relying on
over-the-counter medications to keep the acid at bay, keep a little diary of sorts that makes note
of what you ate, and if/when it caused heartburn. Also keep track of activities and what youre
wearing (explained in #10.)

10. Avoid tight tting clothes


Things cinched tightly about your waist or middle can worsen heartburn. If you have super tight
jeans on, when you sit down, the waistband is going to sink into your abdomen region. Same
goes for tight belts-and even shirts can be a problem for some. This is because all of the above
http://everydayroots.com/heartburnremedies

7/34

1/5/2015

15NaturalRemediesforHeartburn&SevereAcidReflux

puts extra pressure on your lower esophageal sphincter, which make it more likely stomach
contents, will push through and youll experience re ux.

11. Smoking + alcohol = heart on re


Smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol can set you up for terrible re ux. The nicotine and
alcohol both work to weaken your LES, making it that much easier for stomach contents and acid
to splash up into your esophagus. Alcohol is also going to irritate your stomach in general. The
solution? Quit smoking, and drink less (if at all.) Doing both will improve your health overall, in
addition to relieving acid re ux.

12. Maintain a healthy weight


Being overweight increases your risk of GERD, and youre going to suer from occasional
heartburn a lot more as well. This is because unnecessarily added pounds will put pressure on
your lower esophageal sphincter. It will be more likely to loosen, and overtime it may simply
weaken.

13. Mustard.
Mustard is an alkalizing food that is full of minerals, and contains a weak acid in the form of
vinegar. Consuming mustard straight, while it may make you grimace at rst, may ultimately end
up making your smile. Because of its alkaline properties, it will help neutralize the acid that may
come creeping up your throat, and therefore may neutralize the pain of acid re ux. It seems to
be the most helpful if youre feeling a bout of heartburn creeping up, or if youre in the midst of
one.
You will need
-1 teaspoon of good quality yellow mustard
Directions
Muster up some courage, and just take that little sucker straight.

14. Snack on almonds


A natural remedy for heartburn from Readers Digest, eat some almonds after every meal, every
snack, every time you ingest something basically. Try to track down organic almonds if possible.
These tasty nuts do something to seemingly neutralize the juices in your stomach, relieving and
preventing some instances of heartburn.
You will need
-3 to 4 almonds
Directions
Directly after every meal, every snack, basically every time you ingest something, eat 3-4 almonds
afterwards. Theres no need to eat more, unless of course you want to munch on some more, but
keep in mind that in excess some people have found almonds trigger heartburn, kind of like how
they help tension headaches but can trigger migraines.

15. A cup of chamomile


Having a spot of chamomile tea about 1 hour before you plan on going to sleep can help
reduce in ammation in your stomach, and possibly balance out the acidity levels as well. It also
does wonders for relieving stress, which can trigger acid re ux, and will help you sleep through
the night as well. You can use instant chamomile tea, or you can easily make your own fresh.
You will need
-1 teaspoon dried chamomile ower petals
-Strainer
-1 cup of boiling water
-Honey or lemon (optional)
Directions
Boil one cup of water in a cooking pot, and then reduce the heat. Stir in 1 teaspoon of dried
chamomile petals, and let them simmer for 45 seconds. Remove from heat and let the petals
soak for another minute or two before straining them. Pour the tea into a mug, and add a bit of
honey or lemon if you wish.

When I was very young, around 5 or 6, I remember hearing my babysitter talk about heartburn,
and I was horri ed. I asked her if it meant your heart was on re and she said yes. I paused and
http://everydayroots.com/heartburnremedies

10/34

1/5/2015

15NaturalRemediesforHeartburn&SevereAcidReflux

then said like, there are actually ames around your heart? My babysitter nodded solemnly.
Now, of course, I know better than that, but its still called heartburn for a reason. The searing,
burning, pain does indeed feel like someone lit a re in your chest, and let the ames spread to
your throat.
Certain medications may quell the discomfort, but they can have long-term side eects, create
dependency, are hard on your system, and often times arent even necessary for occasional acid
re ux. It may be awhile of trial and error when using natural remedies to nd what works best to
treat your heartburn, but in the long run, its well worth it.

P.S. Take a look at the Everyday Roots Book. It's a Book that we created to help you replace the
toxic products and medications in your home with healthier, all-natural alternatives. It contains
215+ eective home remedies and covers everything you will need to protect your family and

It effects what I can eat,
drink, do and pretty much every aspect of my life. I am so sick of it and have tried everything from

My general quick fix is milk. For a worse attack I make an egg nog. The thinking here is
that the acid cogeals the protien in the egg, forming a raft to help contain the acid.
Same effect as puting vineger in water when poaching an egg.
Long term, load up your diet wth green beans thin sliced the grandma way. Beans are
alkaline foods which are also (I believe) high in vitamin A. This vitamin is important for
maintaining the duodenal lining which goes from your lips to the other end internally.
This also helps keep mouth ulcers at bay.
Keep sliced green beans in you freezer. When your diet goes wobbly, cook up a whole
bowl of beans and force it down any way you can. This will reset your system very
quickly.
A quick fix for mouth ulcers I swill the mouth with a rough red wine. The alcohol and
the tanin seem to get the infection under control quickly.

I used to have really bad heartburn. The kind that would keep me up for a day and a
half until I finally had to purge my contents. I found out that diet was my #1 cause so I
cut out all processed and preserved food. Also vinegar works well. Must be the apple
cider vinegar. The white vinegar does not work at all. Mustard helps me also.
Chamomile tea is great for a lot of things. Also you can find digestive enzymes at your
local health food market. I suggest using these when you eat. That is finally what rid me
totally of heartburn. Along with daily use of probiotics. My overall health has greatly
improved and I havent had heartburn in 3 months!!!!!

Ive tried the yellow mustard one. This seems to work during the heartburn you get
from not having enough acid in your stomach. However, it does not work for heartburn
from having too much acid. I have not figured out how to tell the difference, so there
have been times that this has worked, but there have also been times that it has made
my heartburn worse.

Try making your own aloe juice. For this you will need
1 Fresh aloe leaf cut , strip off the green outside skin. Then you left with clear aloe
with some yellowish outside. Cut and strip off as much of the yellowish outside. Then
you are left with clear aloe. Note the yellowish stuff can give a laxative effect.
Blend with a cup of apple juice, cup of orange juice, qtr cup water.
Its really good and soothes. Way healthier than gavascon.

what is going on and I dont recall this ever happening to me ever before. I have been
put in the hospital for some type of acid reflux problem but the only reason I ended up
at the hospital was because my chest had been hurting and it felt like too much
pressure and I was kept at the hospital under observation for over a day and thats
when I found out I had that problem. I started off getting Prilosec when I left the
hospital but that got expensive so I got the plain label at Walmart Acid Reducer and
those worked just the same. I havent had no problems for over five years and now
here I go again.

Make lifestyle changes and that will help more than just taking an acid reducer.
Limit fats, foods high in acid content (citrus, tomato sauce, drink milk if you are

treatment. Take care.

I have tried some of the above and found that, for myself, soemtimes they work and sometimes they
dont. I know that is not very helpfulBUT what I CAN tell you was a major trigger for me was MINT
gum. I was told, as a child, that mint can sooth your stomach ache, so I chewed gum constantly
without it helping. Until one day, a nurse told me to try fruit flavored gum, like berry or strawberry.
She said stay away from mint and cinnamon. Same is true for toothpaste. I changed from adult
toothpaste (way too much mint) to a childs toothpaste WITH flouride that tasted like strawberry. My
dentist said it is jut the same as adult toothpaste as long as it has flouride. I tried aloe juice, and it was
ok for the one bottle I tried (very expensive and hard to find). Deffinately track your triggers and cut
them out. I am doing much better after cutting out coffee, mint and beer.
I do hope this helps someone out there

I took Prilosec for 17 yrs. and then it stopped!!! For the past year, Ive tried everything
except mustard. I took ginger tea with lemon and honey, or apple cider vinegar with
honey in water, or ice cold small red delicious apples, ( works every time). I chew
crystalized ginger, or ginger candy. Sometimes they work, sometimes they dont. I was
in terrible pain for over the past year. I talked with my primary physician recently and
he had the Gastroentestlogist (sp) prescribe Nexium. It works, so far.

Hi Ganny, just wanted to tell you , please dont be fooled by nexium, I used it for
about eight years, I ran out about a year and half ago,
And was unable to get it, after being off of it for afew hours my stomach felt like I
had drank scalding hot water, I was unable to even drink water, unable to bend
over, it didnt mater if I eat or not, I was in pain.
I am some better now , but I have had a long hard battle. I have prayed , and tried
everything natural that I could find to help.
I use only baking soda and distilled or filtered water for the acid, it works the best
for me. I boil cabbage and drink it broth with salt only , it helps
Actually I have learned to like it as a drink with meals , I try to eat lots of green
leafy vegetables, yellow fruit and vegetables , fish , Turkey, salmon, I have a book
that I found at a thrift store that has helped me greatly. Its called:
Health boosters for seniors
I was in my early fifties when I started taking nexium, learned after I got off it that
you are supposed to only stay on it for a short time,
I think it was killing me.
So I want to encourage you to read about it and its side affects on internet.
We really wont need the meds often if we learn how to eat so we get the vitamins
and minerals that our body needs.
I am still searching to learn all I can about how to feed my body healthy foods and
praying for wisdom on what I can do to get well. God Bless, I pray this has helped .

Check into kidney problems, major reason for stomach disturbances. Get a good
probiotic. Syntol, or Bioinnovations have acid protection so it gets where you need it.
Most dont have this so they are a waste of time and money. Syntol has digestive
enzymes in it.

My dad has some type of reaction to certain foods that is immediate. It almost appears as if he is
going to get sick, but he describes it as if it feels like his chest is closing up and hard to breathe. While
at dinner one night, he had been told about something to try (and said he had before) and requested
some straight lemon juice (offered for them to bring him to lemon slices to squeeze, but the waiter we
had was wonderful and did it for him). He drank that and within 2 or 3 minutes had immediate relief. I
will say he has mentioned he also does the vinegar and it works. I havent had the nerve to try these
yet, due to taste, but he swears by both of these options.

You may want to add Licorice Root to your list. It works wonders for heartburn. I have been using it
for years to control mine.
Also, drinking Gentian Root tea at the onset of heartburn helps to get things moving and dispel the
heartburn. Unfortunately, it is VERY bitter, (probably why it works so well). I just take a few mouthfuls.
One other thing I have been using lately is d-Limonene (Orange Peel Oil). I take one every other day
for 30 days and then stop till needed again. It seems to having a coating action on the esophagus and
it gives you wonderful fresh breath.

Lorraine, licorice root does work because it helps to thicken the mucosal lining of the
esophagus and stomach, however make sure to get deglycerized licorice root because
the regular kind raises blood pressure significantly in some people. I have had great
success with licorice root. Fennel also helps.

I like your website and am a fan of natural cures. However, if acid reflux persists see a doctor.
Frequent acid reflux can lead to Barretts esophagus which is a precursor for cancer. My husband was

I had been telling my doctors for years that I had acid reflux and would be woken up in the middle of
the night by it and sometimes having to run to the bathroom to vomit. It was always overlooked and
not taken seriously. One day last year, I finally got to see a gastro doctor because of my body swelling,
stomach, legs, throat, ankles etc.. Then I remembered a commercial I saw on T.V. and asked him
What are the symptoms of esophageal cancer? ..while thinking about my acid reflux. He thought it
was a good idea to get an Endoscopy done. He found I have Barretts Esophagus, hiatal hernia, and
multiple ulcers in part of my stomach. I had a second endoscopy done 6 months later, luckily the
biopsy of my esophagus was not yet cancerous, and my ulcers had all healed. I do encourage
everyone who has acid reflux to get an endoscopy done, its really important! I started having
heartburn when I was a teenager but didnt know what it was back then, and had it when I was
pregnant as a lot of women do. Now I cant ever take aspirin (doctor thinks the ulcers were caused
by using too many Excedrin migraine pills, although I told him that I only took about 5 in one months
time), and have to try to never have an acid reflux attack because of my Barretts esophagus. Have to
have an endoscopy done every 3 years for now on. In the morning, in my coffee- I add a teaspoon of
coconut oil, a teaspoon of honey, and shake in some cinnamon. I started doing this a month and a
half before my 2nd endoscopy and believe this is what healed my ulcers;)

Most of us have acid reflux problems now and again. In majority of cases this is harmless. If the
problem becomes persistent and goes untreated, the heartburn can develop into GERD
(Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease). In chronic and severe cases the esophagus can become scarred
the patient may have difficulty swallowing, and the risk of developing cancer of the esophagus
increases significantly. .:

Just wanted to mention a disease my son has recently been diagnosed with its eosinophilic
esophagitis. Its a condition where white blood cells (eosinophils) build up on the lining of the
esophagus making the chest tight and causing food to get stuck like the symptoms Randi described
her father had (May 23 2013). My son was hospitalized when he couldnt swallow (not even saliva) for
over 24 hours and the endoscopy tore his esophagus. They prescribe Nexium and allergy testing.
They believe allergies play a role in causing the white blood cells to form. Experts still searching for
definitive causes and treatment, but just thought Id share this info since its a relatively newly named
disorder.

Sounds like your stomach linings are inflamed. Avoid any artificial sweeteners at all
cost,
as well as all soda pops. Take L Glutamine 5-10 gr. p. day on empty, Nutricillin on empty
and Pep Zin Gi with every meal. Once your linings are healed take 2 tbs. Braggs apple
cider vinegar with a 1/3 tsp. baking soda (aluminium free) in 8 oz. of water every day.
Freeze organic lemons, grate one every morning on a cheese grater dissolve 1 1/2 tbs
of natural unprocessed honey in a cup of hot water, add the gratings and drink it
before breakfast. That should solve your problems.

Slippery elm is brilliant! Really works. I get it direct from a qualified herbalist. You use 1
teaspoonful of slippery elm powder in some warm water or milk. Make sure you stir
well and drink every bit. Used it last night after two days of awful acid reflux and slept
soundly for the first time for ages. This morning totally settled down. Also find Apple
cider vinegar (suggested above) and ginger tea helpful and soothing.

11. Smoking + alcohol = heart on fire 12. Maintain a healthy weight
Those are both very wrong What causes heartburn, is eating bad stuff, that has been classified as
good eating, such as Potatoes, Beans, Rice etc Things that are not natural to our bodies!
If you wanna get rid of heartburn forever, and not have weight issues, then go Paleo or LCHF, it also
gives you the joy, of drinking alcohol, without worrying if youll gain weight ( Another myth ).

then comes diarrhea so bad I think I am going to crap my colon out (sorry for the

burn, indigestion and nausea. If I have oil, I get the gas and diarrhea. If I have soy sauce
I usually just get really REALLY bad gas. My body doesnt know what to do with soy,
either it refuses to digest it and it ferments in my stomach and I vomit or it sends it on a
fast track out the other end, like a luge. And guess what? Soy is in everything!!!!!!!!!! I can
imagine how hard it is to find food that you can tolerate if you have multiple

I agree with you Sara. Im soon to be 56 and have had acid issues as long as I can remember but it
always responded to antacids or when very bad, baking soda.
NOTE: Its criticial that the baking soda/water be mixed until absoultely clear or your kidneys will take
a pounding trying to process raw soda granules!
Ive had really bad sinuses for years and seen many specialists who end up throwing in the towel
when their whizbang drugs dont work.
Recently I had spinal fusion surgery and got what I think is full blown GERD or LPR from eating laying
down. Knowing what I know now I would have eaten soft foods or nutritional liquids. I dont have to
tell anyone about reflux chest pains.chest pain is from hell!
The reason I mentioned sinuses is because I now believe I have had silent reflux for years and years
so in a weird way having GERD might be an answer to the hell of sinus infections and may possibly
save me from the horrors of throat or espohageal cancers. I have an endoscopy scheduled for April
23rd so hopefully will FINALLY get some validation that its NOT all my imagination.
Im going to try the raw unpurified ACV today. Tums, OTC omeprazole, baking soda.nothing that
used to work is working like it used to in the past so my reflux has definately evolved.

be coming back to the beginning every time. Im not having a lot of success with whatever Im trying:
prevacid, diovol, senium,
Ive also tried: camomile, fennel, grapefruit, almond milk (We are raw vegan), water, lemon with water,
cucumber / lemon / mint and water (delicious but not for me), bananas (they make it worst),
Oh Almost forgot I have advanced gastro intestinal cancer Im just looking for some kind of
relief so that I can at least sleep more comfortably at night. Thank you all for your help! God bless.

I would be careful with lemon or apple cider, it is pretty harsh, and if you have damaged of you lining ,
it may be irritated.
Stay away from spicies as well, even ginger in this case.
Tomatoes might also case the problem, similar with dairy.

Why I Dont Recommend Baking Soda for Acid Reflux
Many people are familiar with the use of a spoonful of baking soda in water for heartburn relief, but
there are a couple reasons I didnt include it. First off, baking soda is very high in sodium, so taking an
entire spoonful of it could be a problem for some people. Second, and more importantly, adding
baking soda to an already over-full stomach can cause the stomach to explode no joke.

I suffered sore hoarse throat and cough for 22 years and was examined by every specialist known to
man with no result until a speech therapist told me to raise the head of the bed there is something
called Silent GERD no other symptoms of heartburn but at night stomach contents creep up. Within
two days cough and throat improved six months later Im a new person. I almost didnt believe her.
Such an easy cure not just pillows, you must raise the bed. Note: I already knew that if I gained even
two pounds my symptoms were worse so fat plays a huge part in this disease. Years ago I lost ten
pounds in one month by eating just vegetables and rice, with nuts for snack, apple for dessert. No
sauces of any kind. Five days after you start, suddenly food tastes wonderful an apple is equivalent
to cheesecake! Lots of chopping & dicing, but worth it.

Ive had acid reflux for a around 6 months.My doctor put me on meds for 3 months.After I stopped
taking them,2 months after it was back.Im going to try the mustard.I stopped eating fried foods and
anything with tomato in it.I now am staying away from processed food .Veggies And chicken cooked in
my flavor wave.It has been a struggle though because I did love my spaghetti sauces,My acid reflux is
annoying ,I have so much gas and. heartburn 10 minutes after I eat and my stomach is growing as if I
never ate.I do have a lot of stress though,which I have to work on getting rid of.It can be very stressful
wanting to get rid of acid reflux for good and it comes back after my first time having it and I was. on
meds.I would really like it gone fr good without needs,a natural way.I tried white vinegar and I hurled
over in pain,it felt like it was tearing e inside.I think if I would try apple cider vinegar. I will go really
slow ad start by dipping a spoon in it and licking the spoon after.

Dee, I have carried a sore throat for a few months. The burning in the mouth and
throat is quite irritating. I think it stems from diagnosed acid reflux, but I do not feel it
coming up the esophagus. I am connecting it to excessive belching, however which
occurs after eating. The evening seems the worst , and I try to control that by Apple
Cider Vinegar in honey water. My ratio roughly for my vinegar cocktail: 1/2 t. honey in
1/3 c warm water, blend; add -2 t acv, stir. I do not want large quantity and fortunately,
this much works at the time. Generally need this by or after supper. Also, celery is
cooling and feels good on my throat, and gives stomach relief. I try not to take meds for
this as I take enough for other things.

This is approximately the third time Ive had acid reflux and Im only 27. Lord, if this is what getting
older feels like, Im not looking forward to it.
Im currently battling strep throat and this thing has woken up me about every 2 hours (conveniently
when my instant relief heartburn/acid reflux chewables wear off). As rest is vital, and the pills are
really not working, I figured Id look into some of these remedies for relief.
I tried the baking soda method and it tasted so horrible! Because of this alone, I am never doing this
method ever again. I thought I was going to throw up just trying to take it down. I do, however, feel
like it is helping my acid reflux though and the relief started pretty instantly but the
bloating/swelling in my stomach has increased, making me feel like a 4 month pregnant woman. I feel
uncomfortable to say the least.
I also ate a banana before taking the baking soda, and made myself some instant honey chamomile
tea (great for calming my strep throat as well). Best of luck to you all out there.

elsewhere one remedy I found that works for me is similar to what posted here in this case, a
tablespoon of ACV + 1/4 tsp of BICARBONATE OF SODA (+ water of course) . let bi-carb stop fizzing
before adding water.
depending on need. take 2-3 per day.
not sure if that is what you mean by baking soda, but do not use baking powder because it has
tartaric acid added to the bi-carb soda (so baking rises w/o any acid in the ingredients in recipe).
I have tried delicious apples, and honey, but nothing really worked until I tried the above.

I have been taking Prevacid for almost 10 yrs, about the same time I went on High Blood pressure
meds, all happened at the same time I was living with a horrible person who kept me stressed out all
the time. Not happy that I just found out it is only supposed to be for temporary relief up to 2 months.
I have had kidney troubles off and on during my 64 yrs so really try to watch my diet and drink lots of
water and I have my be raised 4 inches at the head. I eat only natural foods, no processed foods, do
my own cooking and baking with natural ingredients. I am now with a wonderful man for 7 yrs and
have no stress so 3 wks ago I went off the Prevacid and the last 2 nights I have had the burning back.
So I am looking here for some natural remedies to try. Thanks to everyone here for sharing their

So for the first time in my life I woke up choking w burning acid in my throat. Whats interesting is that
for several months I have been on an Ayurvedic eating plan that avoids nightshades tomato, potato,
eggplant, bellpeppers and also avoids onions and garlic. Tonight I decided to cheat and have a dish w
tomatoes in the sauce and probably garlic as well, and it resulted in this horrible heartburn reaction.
Wow!! No more nightshades for me! I was scared to go back to sleep because my throat wouldnt
stopped burning. I tried some baking soda in water and the burning feeling throat went away
immediately. Going to try to get back to sleep now.

Was having bad acid reflux for 2 days straight with no relief from Rolaids, ran across your site and
immediately without hesitation grabbed a glass of water with a teaspoon of baking soda (wow! is this
stuff salty! and it doesnt taste very good but) eased the burning in the throat, but still a twinge was
there in the throat (could be because I didnt down it and I have been sipping it like a wuss since it
tastes so bad) ate an macintosh apple and feeling a lot better than before. Worked way better then
the antacids. So thank you for this page! Please do not take it down as I will refer to it often.
I heard baking soda might not be safe for pregnant women, because of the high salt content. So just
be sure to ask your doctor if you are pregnant.

There are a number of different things that cause heartburn. For general types not cause by hernia or
other medical issue (see below), you first need to understand if you have too much acid or too little
acid. If too little, the apple cider vinegar or mustard type remedies will likely help. If too much acid, the
neutralizing type remedies will help like baking soda, Tums, liquid type antacids, etc. Baking soda is
also not good long term as it negatively affects your liver.
Dairy, like cows milk (or yogurt) is not a good idea. (Try Almond Milk) Also, garlic can be a trigger for
heartburn. Never tried green beans, but sliced green beans are also called French Style and readily
available in the canned veggie aisle of your supermarket. Avoid remedies with sugar.
Long term use of Prilosec, etc., type pills are not ever recommended. Going to a doctor is always a
good idea and a specialist is even better. After long voyage through doctors and home made
remedies, I happened to mention heartburn to my endocrinologist (Diabetes). She said, humor me, let
me test you thyroid level. Simple blood test. Sure as you know what, I had under performing thyroid.
Added little daily pill for the thyroid and puff, the heartburn just disappeared. Thyroid is easy to treat
and my Doc said many people go undiagnosed because there are usually no strong symptoms. In
retrospect, I felt cold even on warm summer days and the hair on my legs gradually just disappeared.
Never thought of thyroid disease. Hope this helps and please see a Doc to make sure youre not
having a serious medical issue. Best of luck to all.

I have it horribly right now. The acid reflux had me regurgitating redish brown contents that looked
like blood and taste like acid. My throat is super soar. I cant burp, sit or drink water without this acid
coming up and burning my esophagus.
So I took the Aloe Vera juice. It worked the first couple of burps, but now its burning again. Milk didnt
work. I am sure this is too much acid production, but since I was natural I have a crap load of apple
cider vinegar. Ill see if it works.

My husband suffers with GERD first thing he did was a endoscopy. Resulted in nothing to big but the
problem hasnt gone away from sine 2010. He has been taking natural remedies and it helps for a
while you name it fresh papaya, ginger, and fresh aloe vera plant which helps alot. We from the
caribbean islands so these things are more avaiable to source. However we saw a few doctors in the
USA and they prescribe him with alot of OTC medicine Prilosec, Prevacid which only works for a bit.
But makes him feel worst also ive told him to discontinue them and go back to the natural remedies.
And try to maintain a cure he was to frustrated trying everything suggested trying one or two things
that work and maintain it daily. He has changed his diet fully every cautious of what he eats. I just
researched that persons with AB+ blood type must be extra careful with their diet and he is AB+ so we
reseacrhed the food type that is good for his blood type. But what am really concerned about is his
sinus h was diagonsed with Sinusitis , has anyone devvelope sinus problems while suffering from bad
digestion?

well. Just make sure its all natural & not the HFCS based crap!
If you dont have ginger tea take ginger candies ( all natural ) an place them in a pot of boiling water

I only get acid reflux when I have a Candida flare up. Which is once in the blue moon because I only
get it when I eat sugar, chocolates or honey. Once I have my Candida under control the acid reflux
does not return. If you get regular bouts of acid reflux, the Betain, digestive enzymes plus checking for
Candida and doing a cleanse if you need, should fix you for good.
Bicarb always gives me immediate relief.

Hi,
All this has been interesting and I will look into it all more in the day. Last January I mentioned to my
gp that I started to regularly get fuzzy gurgling in my throat and he put me on medication after I said I
sometimes get acid reflux (he didnt do any investigation into the reason I was getting it, is that
normal?!). Been on the medication almost a year now but concerned about being on long term
medication.
It was 3.30am and I woke up with horrible burning in my throat, I must have refluxed in my sleep!
Realised I forgot to take my tablet this morning and had eaten naughties this evening. My throat felt
raw, in so much pain and swallowing made it worse! I came across this site, tried baking powder in
water which helped a little, and sipping milk and also aloe. Im not sure if it was ccoincidence and a
delayed reaction to the other things, but it was when I cracked a few raw almonds that my throat
started to sooth instantly! I couldnt hardly move,walking and sitting up hurt, but I felt better enough
to walk back to bed and lie stretched with my head on top of the headboard so Im propped up (Ive
since been getting bad windy pops over the last half hour which is also making me feel better in my
stomach and not like Im about to have another attack). But to finally have my throat feeling more like
normal is such a relief! Thank you. And I will start looking into more of these alternative remedies over

Ive suffered from acid reflux for years and Im not overweight, which I hear is part of the problem. My
main triggers are coffee and fatty foods. I took nexium for awhile but its not good for you. My
greatest discovery: natural apple cider vinegar! Drink a few tablespoons in glass of water every day.
Im actually doing it three times a day. It really works. Also, try to avoid stress, which immediately
triggers reflux (well, mine at least). On a morose note, its important your doctor sends you to a GI
specialist for a scope (I had one done a few years ago). Acid reflux can eventually cause cancer. A
terrible story but someone I knew passed away recently from it. I was shocked beyond words because
she was slim and healthy looking, but apparently her reflux had gone untreated for some time, which
is damaging to the esophagus. Please dont just load up on meds and natural remedies visit your
doctor to make sure everything is ok. Good luck!

I was awakened tonight after Christmas dinner. The acid was literally flowing up my esophagus to my
throat. It felt like a burning lava flow. I read all the above remedies, starting with the Baking Soda. I did
1/2 tsp in 4 oz water, followed by 1/2 ripe banana, followed by 1/2 tsp Dijon Mustard. Things are
finally beginning to settle down. The acid lava flow has minimized greatly. I may be able to go back to
bed in an hour, but I would have been up all night otherwise. The horrible pain has subsided by 90% I
am so grateful. I know what caused it for me. I have been basically gluten-free for two years, and it
seems whenever I stray, like I did today with Christmas treats like berry pie, Anisette cookies. After
eating the Christmas treats and gluten containing foods, my acid reflux came back with a vengeance.
The above remedies are calming things down. This happened 6 months ago when i partied hardy and
ate glutenized treats. When will I every learn!?

I have found that taking a Probiotic like Acidophilus with 1 billion organisms after every meal works..
But a Quick fix licorice or chewing gum.
Cutting sugar, greasy, acidic foods out after a certain time of day helps..
All of these help me..
Also, wait 3 or 4 hours after eating before laying down.
If you eat a little late in the evening, laying on an incline will keep acid reflux and heartburn at bay.
Good luck everybody.
