Gastroesophageal reflux happens when your stomach contents come back up into your esophagus. Stomach acid that touches the lining of your esophagus can cause heartburn, also called acid indigestion.
Research indicates between 10-20% of individuals experience acid reflux every week. In fact, it’s one of the most common digestive disorders in the United States and Europe.
Below are the most effective natural remedies to treat heartburn without having to pop another antacid.
Take Organic Baking Soda
Bicarbonate is a wonder product. Mix a spoonful in a glass of water, stir, and drink before it stops fizzing. Some doctors are skeptical so if you have high blood pressure or if you are on a sodium-restricted diet it’s best to get advice first.
Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
Doctors 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.
Take Organic Aloe Vera
Aloe vera is commonly used to calm an upset stomach, diarrhea, and redness associated with bowel diseases such as ulcerative colitis. Inner Aloe vera leaf gel supports digestion and is another great alternative for soothing acid reflux.
