Acid Reflux, otherwise know as Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is a condition in which the liquid content of the stomach refluxes into the esophagus. The liquid can cause lining of the esophagus to become inflamed or even damaged.
The liquid usually contains acid and pepsin (produced by the stomach), and may also contain bile that has backed-up into the stomach from the duodenum.
Natural cure for acid reflux includes chamomile, meadowsweet, slippery elm, cancer bush, fennel, catnip, angelica root, gentian root, ginger root and other botanicals, including aloe. Slippery elm was used historically by native peoples to treat stomach upset, diarrhea, constipation, heartburn and other digestive complaints.
Fennel and gingerroot were also common “folk remedies” for the relief of indigestion. Modern herbalists have found that a combination of several of the herbs that had been used for indigestion could be effective natural remedies for acid reflux. Some may call them natural “cures” for acid reflux, but long-term relief of acid reflux is best accomplished by changes in lifestyle and eating habits.
Self treatment mistakenly using over-the-counter antacids as natural cure for acid reflux can lead to other gastrointestinal problems. For example, antacids containing aluminum have a tendency to cause constipation, while antacids that contain magnesium tend to cause diarrhea. Histamine antagonists, while effective, may also carry side effects like fatigue, headache, insomnia, muscle pain, nausea, and vomiting. In serious cases, it could even cause impotence, confusion, and hallucinations, especially in the elderly. In other words, many of the conventional means of treating Acid Reflux are actually making you sick.
One of the best natural cures for acid reflux is considered to be apple cider vinegar. In order to maximize its effects, it must be administered while eating. Mix one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and drink it with during your meal in order to achieve the best results. For the majority of people with the condition, apple cider vinegar is an effective natural cure that has a calming effect on the stomach and helps decrease the amount of digestive fluids it produces.
Fresh apples, bananas and grapefruit peals are also effective natural cures for acid reflux. Dried figs, fresh pineapple and papaya are rich in enzymes which can be taken too as natural cure for acid reflux.
