Heartburn And Acid Reflux Can Be Controlled Naturally

Updated on January 12, 2012

Heartburn and acid reflux disease need not be controlled by ant-acid tablets or doctor prescribed medicine. These are a possible cause of stomach cancer and should be avoided. There are a lot better ways that will hep you actually feel better, not just mask the symptoms. Not all of these work for everybody so try different ones to see what will help you most. I hope this will help you sleep better at night and not have no stomach burn after your lunch. Most of these are very cheap compared to prescription drugs and perhaps you can slowly stop using them.

Keeping a food diary is essential for identifying what foods will cause your heartburn to flare up. Avoiding caffeine and smoking is a very good start to healing your acid reflux. Eat only soft foods for a couple of days. Drink water after you are done eating. This is good for all parts of your body. Stay away from spicy foods until you feel your body is ready, and then ease into them. After 2 days of resting your esophagus, it is time to take the medicine. Raw honey. This is very beneficial and can be mixed with a little apple cider vinegar for maximum effect. Always chew your food thoroughly. It might take you longer to eat than everyone else, but it is not a race anyway. Do not take more than a couple of teaspoons of the vinegar at a time. Try mixing the vinegar and honey in a little warm water. Some people take a little shot of the vinegar straight, but it is very rough. If you try this, make sure you have a good chaser.

What works for some does not mean it will work for everyone. There are a lot of other things you can give a try if the honey and apple cider vinegar does not work for you. Chew gum for 30 minutes after every meal. Mixing milk and 7-UP is supposed to be an almost instant relief. Do not go to bed for 2-3 hours after eating. You might also try green tea with a little ginseng in it. A little baking soda and water helps some people feel relief. A teaspoon of pectin in 3-4 oz of real grape juice might also be a big help.

A lot of the ways to feel better is to alter your life style. Change your diet to low carb, similar to The South Beach Diet. Walk a lot more and reduce stress in your life. Quit smoking and give up carbonated beverages and alcohol. You will become a new you and after time you will also feel like a new you, healthier and having more energy. I hope this helps some of you people with heartburn and acid reflux to learn to control it and feel better.

      Hi Jackie. The organic cider vinegar is suppose to work the best. As far as memory goes, try ginger and gingsing. Thanks for stopping by.
