Acid Reflux Remedies

Aug 17, 2007
Stomach problems can make a person absolutely miserable. Conditions like acid reflux disease can make your days long and your sleepless nights even longer. There are a lot of prescription medications available today for such conditions but many people prefer to avoid taking too many pills. Natural acid reflux remedies provide welcomed relief for many sufferers.

Basically, acid reflux disease is a result of inflammation in the esophagus. The irritation is caused by liquid from the stomach working its way backwards into the esophagus. Many people recognize the symptom of this stomach problem known as heartburn. This uncomfortable symptom has many of us running to stores looking for acid reflux remedies.

I was not interested in finding acid reflux remedies myself because I had never experienced heartburn until last week. My first bought with the symptom of the stomach problem came as a kind-of frightening shock. I thought that something was stuck in my chest and I couldn't work it out. The sensation was one that I would equate with chocking deep in the chest.

After that brief experience with heartburn I decided that I had better check out some natural acid reflux remedies. I wasn't really looking for my self. My husband complains of heartburn on a daily basis. I had never really understood what he was feeling until I experienced heartburn first hand.

I can't get my husband to take an aspirin let alone prescription medication. Mediations that were used in the past as acid reflux remedies had very bad consequences. The drug Propulsid that was used for the stomach ailment was taken off of the market after many people died from the medication.

My husband isn't really excited about taking medication of any sort and the track record for medications for this stomach problem is bleak. We decided that natural acid reflux remedies would be the best approaches to his discomfort. If there is a natural way to take care of a problem that is the way to go.

We found that drinking a lot of filtered water each day helps to elevate the symptoms associated with the stomach problem. Water helps to balance the pH in your stomach which neutralizes the acids. This is the easiest of the acid reflux remedies to follow.

Other acid reflux remedies include fresh garlic. This came as a huge surprise to both of us. You would think that garlic would disrupt the natural balance in your stomach but it does the opposite. Just adding water and garlic to my husband's diet has proved to be effective acid reflux remedies.
