Acid Reflux - GERD Natural Remedies

Many of us deal with acid reflux or Gerd. Acid reflux happens with the lower esophageal sphincter let the acid to travel back up the esophagus or throat. This can cause a burning sensation. 

Traditional remedies are antacids, H2 receptors, and proton pump inhibitors.

H-2-receptor blockers. H-2-receptor blockers such as Pepcid AC and Zantac can cause cancer.

Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs). These medications, which include Prilosec, Prevacid and Nexium.

Proton pump inhibitors and H-2 receptors blockers aren’t recommended for extended use. They can even cause a risk of stomach and esophageal cancer.

Anti-acid I avoid medication and I found that regular anti-acid such as  Tums, Alkalizer Gold, Pepcid AC are full of additives and colorants and added flavors often with lemon or mint, two great acid-forming. 

I have found supplements and lifestyle that helped me to improve without the use of medication or intervents. Talk with your doctor to see if these tips can help you!

First of all, we need to eliminate the major acid food that causes acid inside our body and add more alkaline food and drinks. This is a natural healing process and it can take time. Follow it until you feel better. 1 or 2 months.
