by Rudy Silva
Here is a list of natural remedies that you can use when you have
acid reflux or heartburn. No need to use antacids, which have
unwanted side effects and contain aluminum, which has been
associated with senility and Alzheimers disease.
Anise, peppermint, and lavender
Heres a tea that you can make to help you with acid reflux or
heartburn. It will help you reduce the amount of acid you have in
your stomach. Mix together equal amounts of aniseed, peppermint
and lavender. Make an infusion of this tea:
- boiling 2 1/2 cup distilled water
- pour this water over a teaspoon of the herbal mixture
- let this tea sit for 3-5 minutes
- strain the tea and add a little bit of honey if you like
- place this tea in a thermos
Drink up to 8 oz in the morning and 8 oz in the evening to get
relief of acid reflux.
Aniseed or anise is a powerful herb that helps in digestive
conditions and has many other benefits for your body. Use only
the ash-colored anise called green anise, European anise or sweet
anise. There are two other types of anise, star anise and caraway,
which should not be used here.

heartburn. It helps in digestion, stomach distension, cramps,
ulcers, and gas.
Lavender, known for it scent, has enormous healing activity for
your body. Is also an excellent stomach aid. It is useful in
reducing acid in the stomach.
Betain, Pepsin, and Papaya digestive enzymes

hydrochloric acid to digest protein. It is undigested protein
that leads to acid reflux or heartburn. Use digestive enzymes
that contain Betain, pepsin, or HCl with each meal to make sure
you digest all of your protein.
Papaya digestive enzymes, which contain papain, are also
excellent for protein digestion and you can use them with each
meal. Use 500mg or more of papaya enzymes per meal.
Pineapples are a store house of enzymes and contain bromelain, an
enzymes that reduces protein. Pineapples support digestion,
reduce inflammation, and supports wound healing. The fresh juice
has a high level of enzymes that will help you stop your acid
You can also buy bromelain as tablet and take 200-500mg per meal.
Chicory comes from a family of bitter herbs that contain endive
and escarole. Boil 1 1/2 cup of chicory root for 5 - 10 minutes.
After it colds to room temperature, drink this tea to correct
acid reflux or heartburn.
Adding these herbs to your salad will also have benefits in
preventing acid reflux. Eating those foods that are alkaline is
the best way to avoid acid reflux and heartburn.
Using the remedies listed here will give relief from your acid
reflux. But more importantly add a salad to your diet everyday
and you will have less acid reflux in your life.
