Acid Reflux has become a common problem all over the globe. If the acid reflux lasts more than a week, you are likely to be a patient of Gastroesophageal reflux disease. Doctors will prescribe medicines, and you will happily take them, but why seek a synthetic solution when you can cure yourself through natural means? If you are regularly facing the problem of acid reflux, i.e. when your stomach juices move upwards into the oesophagus, causing heartburn; try consuming these foods as a natural and permanent remedy.
Aloe Vera juice
Aloe Vera is the magic plant. It not only is good for your skin, but its anti-inflammatory properties will soothe your acid reflux by cooling your oesophagus and stomach lining. Mix two teaspoons of Aloe Vera juice in half a glass of water as soon as you wake up on an empty stomach.
Banana, papaya, and apple
I have heard countless times from my parents that papaya and banana are fantastic for your stomach health, today I know why. Eating apple, papaya, and banana balance the pH levels in our stomach. In simple language, it turns the acidic environment into alkaline, which is all you need.
Add ginger into your diet or drink tea with infused ginger. Ginger is one of the oldest herbs to fix acidity issues; that’s why I always add ginger to my green tea. As soon as you feel the heartburn, make a cup of ginger tea.
When nothing else works peppermint will, Peppermint has been the ingredient in subsiding nausea and acid reflux. You can drink peppermint infused water or add peppermint in your tea. The Peppermint will induce a cooling sensation in your throat and your stomach.
