Acid reflux

2oz Aloe Vera Juice Daily

May add honey to get the bitterness out.

I got to admit, I was put on a dare to try this. I was on 6 medications for acid reflux-and put on a dare to try aloe vera juice. I stopped all medication for acid reflux and did this dare for a month. Your talking to someone that went through a big Rolaid bottle a week and prescriptions. After a month, i notieced improvement. I managed to even cut down my rolaids.
Now, I only occossianly have to take a rolaid or tums. I love this, even though it tastes wretched.

I was on medicine for about 3 years when I heard of taking a tablespoon of vinegar. It hurts like crazy, for about 20-30 seconds, but the results are worth it! I never finished a $0.62 bottle of Apple Cider vinegar and I have been off medication for about 6 years now. I started having to do this every night, but it quickly decreased the occurances and It was maybe once a month. Now I may need a teaspoon once every 6 months to a year, it occures very rarely now, but usually in conjunction with eating too much, over a period of several days and eating meals with tomatoe sauce for 2 or 3 days in a row, but just a teaspoon and I am back on track.

You will hate the pain when you try it, but you will certainly be thankful for the relief that follows so quickly. And saving some $ does not bother me either.

Keep Red apples on hand (I like to slice and dip n honey which also helps) to eat before and after any meal that triggers GERD. A couple teaspoons of baking soda in an 8 oz glass of room temperature water is an instant cure also.

I took acid reducer pills for years, but haven't needed them for at least a year since I began cooking with coconut oil, which kills the 'ulcer organism', Helicobacter pylori. I make sure to ingest as much of the oil as possible, after, say, cooking eggs in it. I also benefit even more by using a healthy olive oil and apple cider vinegar dressing on salads daily.

I did a candida detox diet for a week, the one off, I am now mostly on raw foods (even raw tomato soup, I can handle it now for some reason) and symptoms have almost vanished, I feel like I can breathe and relax after meals instead of commencing a burping frenzy and crying from the acid.

I gave up on dairy and gluten (breads etc), and jasmine rice. There are types of rice that are irritant and others that aren't.

I still smoke, but have no problems with GERD 80% of the time. I can't begin to say how much giving up dairy has changed everything for the better.

You've heard this before but coffee intake matters too. I never have coffee after meals, in the morning seems to be fine, but only if I drink lots of water too.

So the best thing is to start from scratch, instead of eliminating bits and bobs, eliminate every damn processed food from your diet for a week, and then slowly introduce healthier options.

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), more commonly known as acid reflux, affects 19.8 percent of adults in the United States (roughly 47.3 million people). Those who suffer from the disease can attest to the sometimes crippling discomfort it causes. Although medications and surgical options are available, increasingly, medical professionals are touting the benefits of consuming a more alkaline diet in order to control acid reflux.

For both immediate and long-term survival, the body must maintain balance between acidity and alkalinity. In fact, the link between dietary pH balance and various health issues has been recognized by physicians since the early 20th century, although it is only recently creating buzz. This is because the modern diet is vastly different than it was 100 years ago due to the wide availability of protein. Since protein is now a significant component of most meals, the bulk of the current American diet consists primarily of foods that leave an acidic residue within the body. This occurs when food is metabolized and broken down, leaving certain chemical and metallic residues which yield either acid or alkaline potentials of pH for the body. Try drinking kangen water, or type in alkaline water everyday
