Man with Acid Reflux Symptoms

Acid reflux is painful. Food and acid splash into the esophagus and cause belching, heartburn and, in some severe cases, chest pains. Some individuals have experienced pain so intense they thought they were having a heart attack. If a person experiences acid reflux on a regular basis, the acids will irritate the esophagus, which may advance to scarring, ulceration, swelling or hemorrhaging. What is the risk of acid reflux? Many experts agree, if acid reflux persists, it may lead to esophageal cancer.

If you suffer from acid reflux, you need to take inventory of your life and determine what’s causing or exacerbating the problem. Start off with a review of dietary habits. Foods that contain living enzymes are crucial in eliminating and preventing acid reflux. There are other measures you can take, here is a video describing six of them.

6 Natural Remedies for Balancing Acid Reflux

1. Balance Your Hydrochloric Acid Levels

Increasing natural production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach is the first step to preventing acid reflux symptoms. Replace cheap table salt with high-quality sea salt. I personally use and recommend Himalayan Crystal Salt because it contains chloride and dozens of trace minerals the body needs.

I also recommend taking a plant derived Betaine HCL supplement before meals. This is extremely effective at preventing acid reflux symptoms.

2. Change your diet

Processed foods and sugars are almost a guaranteed way to exacerbate acid reflux and create a bacterial imbalance in the stomach and intestinal tract. To combat this, eat fresh organic fruits and vegetables. An apple a day keeps big pharma away! Check out my brand new body cleansing diet! Taking a probiotic supplement like Latero-Flora™ will also help balance the bowel with good bacteria.

3. Take a Digestive Enzyme Supplement

Enzymes are found in abundance in raw food but the act of cooking food over 116° Fahrenheit destroys the health promoting enzymes. Only living and raw foods are high in nutrient values and the enzyme levels that are crucial to combat acid reflux. There are many good enzyme supplements available, and the best one that I recommend is VeganZyme™.

4. Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

I recommend taking one tablespoon of raw organic apple cider vinegar mixed in about 4 ounces of purified water before each meal. This will help calm the stomach and supports digestion. This remedy also works for acute episodes of acid reflux and is my favorite, fast-acting home remedy for acid reflux.

5. Take Organic Baking soda

Bicarbonate is a wonder product though some doctors recommend it not be used if you have high blood pressure or if you are on a sodium restricted diet. It’s best to get advice first. Mix a spoonful in a glass of water, stir, and drink before it stops fizzing.

6. Take Organic Aloe Vera Juice

Aloe vera juice is commonly used to calm upset stomach, diarrhea and redness associated with bowel diseases such as ulcerative colitis. Aloe vera juice supports digestion and is another great remedy for acid reflux. I recommend drinking 1 ounce of the brand ‘R Pur Aloe’ mixed in 2 ounces of water when acid reflux symptoms begin.

Additional Tips

I also suggest a full body cleanse. Start with a colon cleanse, then perform a liver cleanse, then a harmful organism cleanse, followed by a chemical and toxic metal cleanse.

Eliminating the discomfort from acid reflux can be done without expensive over-the-counter medications. There are many natural remedies readily available. Feel better naturally, your body will thank you!

    I think I had an attack of acid reflux after eating chicken and dumplings. i was hurting in my chest on the right side and it ran up my neck into my jaw, Very painful and sharp. I immediately put an aspirin under my tongue and took protonix. This all lasted about five minutes. I was thinking “could this be my heart?” Now, several hours later, I am fine. Any thoughts from others?

    Everyone seems to be offering advice that treats the results rather than the cause. I’ve had Acid Reflux for years plus a Hiatal Hernia that the doctor refuses to perform an operation that would solve my problem but Obama Care won’t pay for the operation. So I decided to do some research and get down to the Root of the problem. Finally after 30 years of intense research I came to the conclusion that eating food and drinking fluids were the main origin of my reflux. So, I gave up drinking coffee, cokes, water, beer and even Raw ACV. I gave up food and everything else that goes into one’s mouth. Nothing worked. One night as I buckled my seat belt and prepared to spend another night sleeping sitting up in a straight chair The real reason came to me. The solution was simple, SEX yes that’s the answer. I mean a lot of Sex all night long. It takes your mind off of the reflux problem. You know if you don’t think about it the problem will go away. My girlfriend was happy at first but she accused me keeping her up all night. Plus the acid still keeps coming up at the wrong time. So to solve that problem by taping my mouth closed with Duck Tape. Worked great. Reflux doesn’t bother me any more so long as I don’t run out of Tape. I think I’m going to need another girlfriend soon. The one I have now always complains that she can’t any sleep at night and can’t stay awake all day at her job. Maybe I need two girl friends. It seems that there is always another problem to face.
