Any natural “remedies” that assist?


Anyone had good / bad results from taking a PPI (proton pump inhibitor) to help with acid reflux?

I’m not keen on taking meds that “turn off” my natural bodily mechanisms, & I don’t normally react well to medication, but need to do something as the reflux is starting to affect the “valve” at the end of the esophageal tract. Thankfully it’s been caught early & obviously I want to stop it now.

  1. GREAT RESULTS! I take 300mg of ranitidine every evening.

  2. There are a lot of long term side effects from taking PPI’s. We as a group already have a difficult time absorbing nutrition and taking these makes it more difficult. Taking apple cider vinegar or lemon juice will help in time. The acid makes the sphincter muscle tighten and also aides in digestion. You want ACV with the ‘Mother’ I’ve found that I like Bragg’s the best. Try to cut down on meal size and of coarse the acid reflux triggers.

  3. I would highly recommend reading this before making any decisions! Good luck! 🙂 Why Stomach Acid Is Good for You: Natural Relief from Heartburn, Indigestion, Reflux and GERD

  4. What I found most helpful were drinking alkaline spring water, probiotics, and aloe- has to be free of preservatives (no ascorbic acid, citric acid, lemon juice). A shot before breakfast & another at bedtime: good for digestion & helps with esophageal healing.\nFood wise, try raw coconut vinegar with XVOO to dress salads (least acidic of any vinegar) & using herbs over spices.
