Please consult your physician for your own particular needs. Every person is different and you may require medical attention.
This condition happens when the liquid content of the stomach backs up into the esophagus. It is extremely painful and persists for a long time.
Patience, a healthy diet and a few home remedies may bring you some relief and help you to feel better.
Foods to avoid when you have this condition are fermented foods, peanuts,potatoes, mushrooms, asparagus, bananas, sweet potatoes, sweet foods, fried foods,and dairy products.
There seems to be an acid imbalance in the body. You can measure your own saliva and urine pH with pH paper that you can buy from any drugstore.Your saliva test should be below 7.0 and the urine test should be below 6.5.
Tiny organisms that cause acid reflux don’t seem to like alkaline blood.
There are a number of natural remedies for GERD. The number one remedy that most people use is cider vinegar.
When my acid level becomes too low in the saliva test; I use 1/4 tsp. potassium citrate 2 times a day. And when the urine test becomes low I use 1/4 tsp. sodium citrate 2 times a day. Both of these can be taken with 1/2 cup warm water.
Usually the acid reflux subsides in about a week.
Some people have difficulty swallowing and you should know that a sudden contraction of the muscles signifies a magnesium deficiency.
Magnesium relaxes muscles, Vitamin E strengthens muscles, B complex vitamins increases neutral control in swallowing.
Kelp reduces acid in the body( if your level is too high) and aids in keeping a proper balance of minerals.
Using elder bark, hops, and willow may help you also.
phosphorus and sulfur act as buffers to maintain pH.
I hope these natural remedies for GERD will be helpful for you.
