  #10 Home Remedies for Acid Reflux
  Acid reflux is not a nice feeling. Food and acid splash into the esophagus (the
muscular tube that takes food after swallowing into the stomach) causing
uncomfortable reactions from belching to 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 and this can advance to scarring, ulceration, inflammation and
hemorrhaging. According to authors and doctors F. Balch, M.D. and Mark Stengler,
N.D., if acid reflux persists for a very long period of time is may even lead to
esophageal cancer.
  Here are a few of my favorite home remedies for acid reflux:
  5 Natural Remedies for the Long Haul The first thing a person needs to do is
examine their daily intake of food. What is being consumed? Starting off with an
overhaul of dietary habits is a good starting point. Foods that contain living enzymes
are crucial in not only eliminating acid reflux, but to prevent it from starting.
  Balance Your Hydrochloric Acid Levels
  Increasing your body 鈥檚 natural production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach is
the first step at preventing acid reflux symptoms. This can be done by getting rid of
the cheap table salt that many people use and replace it with high-quality sea salt (or
un-processed salt). I personally use and recommend Himalayan Crystal Salt because
not only does it contain the chloride a body needs, but it also contains dozens of trace
minerals that the body needs.
  I would also recommend taking a beet derived Betaine HCL supplement before
meals. This works extremely well at preventing acid reflux symptoms.
  Change your diet
  Processed foods and sugars are almost a guaranteed way to exacerbate acid reflux
and it creates an imbalance in the bacterial balance in the stomach and intestinal tract.
Eat a lot of fresh organic fruits and vegetables. An apple a day can not only keep the
doctor away, it can keep big pharma away as well. Eating lots of fresh salad is also
important. A great food guide is explained in my recent book 鈥淭 he Green Body
Cleanse 鈥? Taking a good probiotics supplement will also help balance the bowel
with good bacteria. I personally take and recommend Latero-Flora.
  Digestive Enzymes
  Enzymes are found in abundance in raw food. The act of cooking food over 116 掳
Fahrenheit destroys these health promoting enzymes. All cooked foods are devoid of
enzymes so only living and raw foods are high in nutrient values and the enzyme
levels are crucial to combat acid reflux. There are many good enzyme supplements
available, but I personally use and recommend Zymitol.
  Increase Your Vitamin D
  Increasing vitamin D levels will optimize production of 200 antimicrobial peptides
that aid in eradicating any infection in your body, including in the esophagus. Vitamin
D is free and in abundance through appropriate levels of sun exposure. If this is not
possible, I would recommend eating foods high in Vitamin d or taking a high-quality
vitamin d supplement.
 Frequent Exercise
 Exercising is always beneficial in staying healthy. Improving the body 鈥檚 immune
system is like working on a puzzle and all the pieces need to fit right. Exercise is part
of that puzzle. Make it a habit to take a walk after work. Increasing the amount of
cardio exercise you do, will help improve your overall health.
 5 Natural Remedies that Work Quick
 If you still experience acid reflux symptoms after making the appropriate lifestyle
changes, try these five quick home remedies for instant relief.
 Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
 I recommended taking one tablespoon of raw organic apple cider vinegar mixed in a
small glass (about 4 ounces) of purified water before each meal. This will help calm
the stomach and help with digestion. This remedy also works for acute episodes of
acid reflux. This is my favorite home remedy for acid reflux, as it works quick.
 Baking soda
 Bicarbonate is a wonder product. It kills odors in refrigerators, cleans stains, and it is
the most natural antacid to treat heartburn and stomach upset. Some doctors
recommend that this not be used if you have high blood pressure or if you are on
sodium restricted diets. It 鈥檚 best to get advice first. A spoonful in a glass of water,
stir and drink it before it stops fizzing is best. Buy from a organic or natural food
 Organic Aloe Vera Juice
 Aloe vera juice is commonly used to treat an upset stomach, diarrhea and
inflammation associated with bowel diseases such as ulcerative colitis. One of the
added benefits is the fact that it aids in digestion, and is another great remedy for acid
reflux. I recommend drinking 1 ounce of the brand 鈥楻 Pur Aloe 鈥?mixed in 2
ounces of water as soon as the acid reflux symptoms start.
 This amino acid naturally occurs in the human body, glutamine can be found in
many dietary sources such as milk, eggs, fish, parsley, spinach and more. Glutamine is
an anti-inflammatory that reduces intestinal inflammation with acid reflux.
 Herbal Licorice
 This is another effective home remedy for acid reflux, because it helps coat the
stomach with a protective gel. Please keep in mind, that I am not referring to the
candy, but the popular herbal root that has been used for centuries for various ailments.
Most health food stores will have this in a tea or tincture form
 I also suggest a full body cleanse starting with a colon cleanse, then moving on to
doing a liver detox, and then doing either a harmful organism cleanse or chemical and
heavy metal cleanse. Eliminating those not nice feelings of acid reflux is not as
difficult as one may think. There 鈥檚 no need for expensive over-the-counter
medications when there are so many natural remedies that are readily available. Feel
better naturally; your body will thank you.
