Acid reflux Treatment in Ayurveda
1. Balance Your Hydrochloric Acid Levels
Increasing natural production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach is the first step to preventing acid reflux. Replace cheap table salt with high-quality sea salt. I use and recommend Himalayan crystal salt because it contains chloride and dozens of trace minerals the body needs.
I also recommend taking a plant derived Betaine HCL supplement before meals. This is extremely effective at preventing acid reflux.
2. Change Your Diet
Processed foods and sugars are almost a guaranteed way to exacerbate acid reflux and create a bacterial imbalance in the stomach and intestinal tract. To combat this, eat fresh organic fruits and vegetables. An apple a day keeps big pharma away! Check out my brand new body cleansing diet! Taking a probiotic supplement like FloraTrex™ will also help balance the gut with good bacteria.
3. Take a Digestive Enzyme Supplement
Enzymes are found in abundance in raw food, but the act of cooking food over 116° Fahrenheit destroys the health-promoting enzymes. Only living and raw foods are high in nutrient values and the enzyme levels that are crucial to combat acid reflux. There are many good enzyme supplements available, and the one that I recommend is VeganZyme™.
4. Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
I recommend taking one tablespoon of raw organic apple cider vinegar mixed in about 4 ounces of purified water before each meal. This will help calm the stomach and supports digestion; it’s also my favorite, fast-acting home remedy for acid reflux.
5. Take Organic Baking Soda
Bicarbonate is a wonder product. Mix a spoonful in a glass of water, stir, and drink before it stops fizzing. Some doctors are skeptical so if you have high blood pressure or if you are on a sodium-restricted diet it’s best to get advice first.
6. Take Organic Aloe Vera
Aloe vera is commonly used to calm an upset stomach, diarrhea, and redness associated with bowel diseases such as ulcerative colitis.[, ]Inner Aloe vera leaf gel supports digestion and is another great alternative for soothing acid reflux.
I also suggest a full body cleanse, beginning with a comprehensive colon cleanse. Accumulated toxins from processed foods and sugars can disrupt digestion and lead to acid reflux symptoms. A regular full body cleanse can flush out your system and help promote acid balance.
Eliminating the discomfort of acid reflux can be done without expensive over-the-counter medications. There are many natural remedies readily available. Feel better naturally; your body will thank you!References (7)
