Acid Reflux Natural Remedies
Acid Reflux Natural Remedies – The body has an armory of ways to prevent this disease. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a physiological disorder, an illness where the liquefied contents of the sufferers stomach backs up into their esophagus and causes regurgitation of the stomachs’ content inside the esophagus and oral cavity.
Although stomach acids and their back up can be controlled with the means of medication treatments, in special cases the disease may also involve surgery. Stress reduction is key to the management of acid reflux disease.
Esophageal acid testing is probably the most accurate way to test for excessive stomach acids, but is the most obtrusive as well and a treatment that is very common is the use of antacids. Another simple treatment for is simply eating right; the kinds of foods that are healthy for you; not fried, less fat content and less carbs.
Examining the throat and larynx is an approach that is sometimes considered for the diagnosis of this reflux disease. Whatever the cause, what is constant is the fact that it is a chronic disease.
The good news is that this flux of stomach acids is a highly manageable condition, though, if not treated, it can lead to potentially serious, chronic conditions that may require hospitalization. Whether you have been recently diagnosed with this reflux disease or are a long-time sufferer, there are many treatment options available to you, and with a few simple lifestyle changes, under a doctor’s supervision, can help you live with your symptoms.
Once you have been properly diagnosed as having Acid Reflux Disease, there are a variety of treatment options available to you. While there are many medications and natural methods to rid yourself of that burning sensation that accompanies each reflux bout, the first line of action should be a thorough assessment of the your food and lifestyle.

Scientists did studies with 2000 pairs of non-identical and identical twins, and found that 43% of the total who suffered frequent gastrointestinal symptoms and the chances of them developing acid reflux, were suffering or would suffer due to hereditary genetics.
GERD in infants is always as a result of a lot of factors, however, most of the causative factors tend to be aggravated by the fact that infants, spend a great deal of their days lying on their back or in a supine position and consume mostly liquid food.
Ms. CiCi is a self-educated expert on some of the causes and how to cure reflux disease, by natural means. For many, tomatoes and foods containing tomatoes can also cause reflux. Some factors contributing to reflux include fatty foods, cigarettes, chocolate, caffeine, alcohol, obesity, pregnancy and delayed stomach emptying.
There are also many natural ingredients found in any health store, which can help during the acid reflux recovery period. However, I have found the best way to control and the best way to avoid acid reflux is so very, very simple.
Simply purchase a bottle of dark, ORGANIC vinegar. You can buy ORGANIC vinegar at your local health food store. To an 8 ounce glass of water add one or two tablespoons of vinegar. Stir. If you are suffering with acid reflux drink 3 glasses of this vinegar water a day. If you are working on preventing acid reflux, drink one glass a day.
I always have my one glass a day near my workstation and sip it as I would a soft drink. Also, I use about 4 tablespoons of vinegar as I like the taste!
Prior to drinking my vinegar water I suffered greatly with acid reflux. And eating those hot spicy foods that I love so well? Well, either I would indulge… and suffer… or I’d pass them by and yearn. Today my acid reflux is part of written history of my past!
