NATURAL TIPS FOR ACID REFLUX / HEARTBURN


Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), more commonly known as acid reflux or heartburn, is caused when digestive acids flow up from the stomach and into the esophagus. The esophagus, located in the heart region of the chest, becomes irritated with a burning sensation. Symptoms of heartburn can include: burning in the throat, abdomen, or chest, trouble swallowing, nausea, sore throat, coughing and frequent burping. If acid reflux occurs often on a regular basis, the condition becomes gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), which can develop into cancer of the esophagus if ignored. The burning sensation and other unpleasant symptoms associated with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) usually can be effectively managed through drug therapy. However, home remedies also play a role in healing.  Over the counter (OTC) or prescribed medications lead to other problems, of course.

This remedy helps to get rid of acid-reflux medication completely.

DGL (deglycyrrhizinated licorice) Tablets

Eating a lot of licorice, however, can also have serious side effects like high blood pressure, so look for DGL licorice (It does not contain the potentially dangerous glycyrrhizic acid) and DGL available at most natural-food stores. Chew 1 dgl tablet (deglycyrrhizinated licorice) 20 minutes before each meal and 2 at bedtime. Or taking a half-teaspoon of the powder in water as often as it takes to get relief.

Gum Therapy

Chew a stick of sugar-free gum for 30 minutes after a meal to increase saliva production, which research shows can reduce acid levels in the esophagus. Choose non-peppermint flavors for best results. One of the substances in your saliva is bicarbonate, the same active ingredient in baking soda that neutralizes acids. Chew gum that lists bicarbonate in the ingredients for optimum results. You can find these varieties near the toothpaste section at your local store or pharmacy. Regular gum can also be a quick remedy for heartburn.
