Acid Reflux

What is acid reflux?

Acid reflux is when the hydrochloric acid in your stomach repeats up your esophagus. If left untreated it can lead to hernia or even a stomach abscess. It’s therefore important to get your acid reflux under control.

Symptoms of acid reflux [1]

  • A burning sensation in your chest (heartburn), usually after eating, which might be worse at night
  • Chest pain
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Regurgitation of food or sour liquid
  • Sensation of a lump in your throat

If you have night-time acid reflux, you might also experience:

  • Chronic cough
  • Laryngitis
  • New or worsening asthma
  • Disrupted sleep

Natural treatment for acid reflux

There are some natural ways that you can stop acid reflux. You must immediately turn to your diet and cut out certain foods, as well as increasing more foods from certain groups.

  • Gluten
  • Dairy
  • Alcohol
  • Sugar
