Acid Reflux – 10 Natural Remedies for Acid Reflux
Acid reflux is a digestive problem also known as heartburn. It is characterized by an uncomfortable, sometimes painful, burning sensation in your chest. It is a common condition and it occurs when the acid in your stomach is backed up into your esophagus towards your mouth.
The esophagus is a tube that connects your mouth to your stomach and it pushes down your food in rhythmic waves. The acid in the stomach is strong and your stomach has a lining to protect it from the acid. This acid can cause irritation and damage to the lining of the esophagus.
Other than the burning sensation symptoms of acid reflux include hiccups and a metallic or bitter taste in your mouth. Heartburn can last for a few minutes or for as long as several hours. If you have regular acid reflux you may be suffering from gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and you need to seek medical attention as soon as possible.
Acid reflux may be caused by several factors such as drinking caffeine, eating spicy food, overeating, stress, and genetics. It is triggered by so many different things and this may make it difficult to identify the trigger. Sometimes acid reflux may be a result of an underlying medical condition or medication that you are using.
Acid reflux may be treated using medication especially if you have persistent heartburn. For those who get occasional acid reflux, simple home remedies are sufficient to relieve the symptoms and reduce heartburn. The following are safe natural home remedies that you can use to provide relief and treat acid reflux.
