it is better if you take natural remedies such as an apple a day. i have had the same problem for over 3 years, the doctors always give me different medication but it doesn't help for long. I have started eating an apple a day for like 2 weeks now, i have noticed that my stomach has gone better, i can digest food properly and eat everything Answer 1/2 teaspoon of backing soda in a glass of water ,then add just a touch of vinegar . this will cause it to foam . drink it quickly . the was used by my grandma she is 90 + years old and i use it also .it will kill the acid instanty. kinda like a liquid form of alkaselzer Answer That depends how severe the reflux is. Avoidance of spicy foods, coffee, peppermints, and so on certainly can help some people. Others, however, need medication for the condition, as it can certainly be severe. Starting with over the counter medications such as Pepcid are a good option; stronger medications require a prescription. It's important to treat reflux, not just for symptom relief, but also to prevent any damage or cancerous changes to the esophagus that occur when the acid comes into it. Hope this helps! Dr. B. Answer YOu also need to get a definitive diagnosis from a doctor if your reflux is severe.
Answer2: I suffered for years taking prescription and over the counter remedies. There is a lot yiu can do if you change the way you eat and what you eat. Avoid heavy meals at any one time, choose smaller meals throughout the day. Avoid foods that create acid, heavy red meats, certain carbohydrates, tomato sauce, caffeine, peppermint tea and gum. Buy Braggs or other apple cider vinegar and when you feel the symptoms, mix a teaspoon or two in a small glass of water and drink.
