In treating annoying conditions like heartburn or reflux that can disrupt something as simple as standing straight comfortably, natural methods are essential to be aware of.

Rebound the Reflux, Naturally

No one wants the added worry of whether or not certain chemicals will not sit well with their bodies. However, introducing natural substances to your body should be discussed with your doctor to avoid any adverse effects such as allergy or interaction with other medications.

Except for a tip on how to dress to rebound your reflux, these six powerful anti-inflammatories, antioxidants, and compounds can improve uncomfortable stomach acid.

Ginger 

The acid compounds contained in ginger are said to aid with irritation of the digestive tract. This can, in turn, lessen the amount of acid that travels from the stomach to the esophagus. Ginger is also a general anti-inflammatory agent that is ideal for treating discomfort and common ailments such as nausea.  It can be enjoyed fresh in a hot tea, chewed as gum, or added to your food.

Loose Clothing

Avoid wearing any tight clothes around your abdomen. Instead, go for a loose fit that won't press and push acid from your stomach up into your esophagus. Manage your posture and make sure to stay upright to ensure that acid is not disrupted.

Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)

ACV isn't dubbed as a GR8 food for nothing. This powerhouse substance can do a lot for your health, and among its capabilities is easing indigestion. It can balance pH and stomach acid. Dilute a tablespoon with water for a gentle dose.

Milk Thistle 

This plant containing a milky sap is well known for its benefits as an herbal supplement. While there isn't research to prove its benefits, it has been long regarded as a treatment for a span of issues relating to the digestive tract, liver, and a variety of other conditions. It can be taken in supplement form, as seeds, or ground into a powder.

Banana 

Another GR8 food to praise, the banana. The benefits are expansive. But its high concentrations of magnesium and fiber make it the perfect ally for fighting heartburn and balancing the bacteria in the body.

Baking Soda 

Baking soda is an awesome and instant aid for acid reflux. Its alkaline pH works to neutralize the acid in the stomach, similar to over-the-counter methods and antacid medications. However, it should be carefully used as it tends to interact with other substances and is not recommended for those who are pregnant.
