Wickedly Effective and Natural Remedies for GERD

If you suffer from acid reflux then you should know that there are many things that you can do to not only alleviate the symptoms but also treat GERD effectively.

Because everybody is unique and reacts differently to treatments, I kindly encourage you to discuss with your doctor before using any natural remedy.

There are some treatments that could interfere with your medication and vice-versa.

So, without further due, here are the most potent remedies for GERD:

1. Aloe Vera Juice

This plant has an incredible anti-inflammatory effect that can soothe your heartburns immediately.

To calm that awful sensation, a glass of Aloe Vera juice will do the trick.

To maximize the results:

Drink a cup of aloe juice (cool or at room temperature) before meals.

Attention: Because aloe can act as a laxative, look for a brand that has the laxative component removed.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar

It may seem counterintuitive to ingest even more acid when your esophagus is burning from acid, but…in many cases, acid reflux is caused by having not enough acid in your stomach.

If you don’t produce enough acid, your lower esophageal sphincter (LES) is going to think it’s no big deal to loosen up for a little bit.

Then, of course, you get a reflux of acid into your esophagus.

If you think this may be your case, try drinking some pure, raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar to see if this prevents your reflux.

To maximize the results:

Mix 3 teaspoons or up to 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with 6-8 ounces of fresh water, and drink.

Do this before each meal (probably the most effective) or before bedtime (depending on the severity of your GERD symptoms).

Attention: If you feel it worsens your reflux, do not continue to ingest it. Too much of it may also contribute to the problem. 

3. Almonds

These tasty nuts have the capacity to neutralize your stomach juices, thus relieving and preventing instances of heartburn.

To maximize the results:

After every meal or snack, eat 3-4 almonds and enjoy the soothing effect.

4. Chamomile Tea

This herb helps reduce the inflammation in your stomach while also balancing out the acidity levels.

It’s also very potent in relieving stress – another acid reflux factor.

To maximize the results:

  • Boil one 8 ounces of water in a cooking pot, and then reduce the heat.
  • Stir in 1 teaspoon of dried chamomile petals, and let them simmer for 45 seconds.
  • Remove from heat and let the petals soak for another minute or two before straining them.
  • Pour the tea into a mug, and add a bit of honey or lemon if you wish.

Drink the tea about 1 hour before you plan on going to sleep to relish in its healing effects.

5. Relaxation Techniques

Not only is stress a powerful factor in triggering GERD, but this condition itself poses a lot of stress on both your body and mind.

It keeps you from enjoying life to the fullest and even have a good night sleep.

Therefore, by incorporating a few relaxation techniques, you might be able to reduce acid reflux episodes.

And the best part is that it doesn’t take a long time to do these techniques.

You are required to dedicate only a few minutes, several times a day, to tame your stress levels by doing one of the following:

  • Yoga
  • Meditation
  • Deep breathing
