15 Natural Remedies for Heartburn & Severe Acid Reflux

heartburnHeartburn is something that most adults will experience during their lifetime. It is characterized by an uncomfortable burning sensation right behind the breastbone that often times creeps up the throat, and is a symptom more so than a disease. It is caused by acid reflux, which occurs when the ring of muscle that allows food into your stomach (the lower esophageal sphincter, or LES) relaxes when it shouldn’t. The result is acid from your stomach goes back up your esophagus, which then causes the sensation of heartburn. Think about it…its acid burning your throat…ouch! It’s actually possible to have reflux without heartburn, but it is not possible to have heartburn without reflux. While over-the-counter and prescription medications are available, if you suffer only from occasional heartburn, lifestyle changes and heartburn home remedies may be the route you want to take.

1. A spoonful of baking soda…

A spoonful of sodium bicarbonate, or teaspoon-full to be exact, can help put an end to the gnawing, burning, sensation of heartburn caused by acid reflux. Baking soda, as sodium bicarbonate is more commonly known, can help your reflux and in turn help your heartburn because it is a base substance. It has a pH higher than 7.0, and therefore neutralizes stomach acid. Neutralizing the stomach acid means that if/when your LES decides to be lazy and acid comes up your throat, you don’t get “burned.”

You will need…
-1/2 teaspoon or 1 teaspoon of baking soda
-a glass of fresh water

Directions
Mix either a ½ teaspoon or 1 single teaspoon of baking soda into a glass of water that is no more than 8 ounces. Give it a good stir and drink all of the mixture. You can repeat this as needed but should not exceed seven ½ teaspoon doses in a 24 hour period. Also, avoid using this as a remedy for more than a week straight, as it is high in salt and can have side effects such as swelling or nausea.

2. Soothe your stomach with aloe juice

Aloe is a plant used to soothe burns, and people often think of using it to help something like sunburn, but it can do more than that. It may be able to help with heartburn too because it reduces inflammation. This means when your tummy starts getting irritated and inflamed, or your esophagus is getting eaten away at, a nice glass of aloe vera juice may be just the thing to help calm it down.

You will need…
-1/2 cup aloe vera juice

Directions
Drink a ½ cup of aloe juice, cool or room temperature, before meals. Keep in mind that aloe can act as a laxative, so unless you’re looking to fit in a few extra bathroom Sudoku puzzles, look for a brand that has the laxative component removed.


3. Chew gum

The Journal of Dental Research conducted a study that showed people with symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), or chronic heartburn, experienced relief when they chewed a piece of sugar-free gum for 30 minutes after a meal. This is because chewing gum stimulates the salivary glands, and increases the flow of saliva. Any acid that has built up in the gut is diluted and washed away or cleared out more quickly. The clearance of acid then improves the symptoms of GERD. It is possible that the same school of thought could be applied to occasional heartburn as well. It’s our regular saliva that we swallow that actually makes normal bouts of reflux here and there completely painless.

You will need…
-1 piece of sugar-free gum

Directions…
After a meal, pop in a piece of sugar-free gum and chew for 30 minutes to help ward off heartburn.

4. Chin up (and don’t lie down)

Heartburn tends to get worse at night, thanks to the fact that you’re lying down when you sleep. Gravity works against you, and it’s easier for the digested contents of your stomach to back up into your esophagus, along with acid. Try elevating your head about 6 inches when you sleep by placing bricks, books, or blocks under the legs at the head of your bed. You could also try a wedge-shaped pillow under your mattress, but don’t simply pile up extra pillows as it’s easy to slip off of them at night. Don’t lie down within 3-4 hours after eating, because lying down with a full stomach makes stomach contents press harder against your lower esophageal sphincter.

5. How, what, and when

Watch how you eat: Don’t inhale giant mouthfuls of food. Take smaller bites and eat slowly, allowing your stomach time to digest and without giving it an excuse to pump out excess acid.

Watch what you eat: You’re probably aware that specific foods trigger heartburn, usually foods high in acid (tomatoes or citrus fruits, for example,) or spicy foods. Avoid these as best you can to ward off

Watch when you eat: Don’t eat within 3-4 hours before bed. Lying down puts more pressure on your LES and increases the likelihood of acid sneaking through.

6. Get more acid

When you have acid burning your esophagus, it seems quite counterintuitive to ingest even more acid. In many cases though, acid reflux is caused by having not enough acid in your stomach, rather than having too much, as over-the-counter or prescription “acid blockers” imply (although that can also be the case, among other factors.) It is the acid itself that tells the lower esophageal sphincter to tighten and close off. If you don’t produce enough acid, your LES is going to think it’s no big deal to loosen up for a little bit. Then of course, you get a reflux of acid into your esophagus. If you think this may be your case, try drinking some pure, raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar to see if this prevents your reflux, or cuts it off.

You will need…
-3 teaspoons or 1 tablespoon of raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar
-6 to 8 ounces of fresh water

Directions
Mix 3 teaspoons, or up to 1 tablespoon, of apple cider vinegar into 6-8 ounces of fresh water, and drink. You can do this before each meal (probably the most effective,) before bedtime, or 2-3 times during the day. If you feel is worsens your reflux, do not continue to ingest it. Too much may also contribute to the problem.

7. Eat a banana or an apple

Bananas contain natural antacids that can act as a buffer against acid reflux. If you want to try out the simplest home remedies for heartburn first, try letting a few bananas ripen up nicely and eating one every day. Another option is to try an apple a day. Slice one up and eat it a couple of hours before bedtime to relieve or prevent discomfort.

8. Make gingerroot tea

Gingerroot can help ease up a number of stomach woes, from nausea to acid reflux. Sipping a cup of fresh tea about 20 minutes before a meal can help calm down your tummy and act as an acid buffer.

You will need…
-3 quarter sized slices of gingerroot
-2 cups of water

Slice up 3 quarter sized pieces of gingerroot and simmer gently in 2 cups of water, covered, for 30 minutes. Remove the ginger pieces, or leave them in, pour into a glass, and drink all of it about 20 minutes before a meal.

9. Track your triggers

It takes time, energy, and dedication, but tracking what triggers your heartburn may be what ultimately makes it go away in the end. Instead of going crazy with what you eat and relying on over-the-counter medications to keep the acid at bay, keep a little diary of sorts that makes note of what you ate, and if/when it caused heartburn. Also keep track of activities and what you’re wearing (explained in #10.)

10. Avoid tight fitting clothes

Things cinched tightly about your waist or middle can worsen heartburn. If you have super tight jeans on, when you sit down, the waistband is going to sink into your abdomen region. Same goes for tight belts-and even shirts can be a problem for some. This is because all of the above puts extra pressure on your lower esophageal sphincter, which make it more likely stomach contents, will push through and you’ll experience reflux.

11. Smoking + alcohol = heart on fire

Smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol can set you up for terrible reflux. The nicotine and alcohol both work to weaken your LES, making it that much easier for stomach contents and acid to splash up into your esophagus. Alcohol is also going to irritate your stomach in general. The solution? Quit smoking, and drink less (if at all.) Doing both will improve your health overall, in addition to relieving acid reflux.

12. Maintain a healthy weight

Being overweight increases your risk of GERD, and you’re going to suffer from occasional heartburn a lot more as well. This is because unnecessarily added pounds will put pressure on your lower esophageal sphincter. It will be more likely to loosen, and overtime it may simply weaken.

13. Mustard.

Mustard is an alkalizing food that is full of minerals, and contains a weak acid in the form of vinegar. Consuming mustard straight, while it may make you grimace at first, may ultimately end up making your smile. Because of its alkaline properties, it will help neutralize the acid that may come creeping up your throat, and therefore may neutralize the pain of acid reflux. It seems to be the most helpful if you’re feeling a bout of heartburn creeping up, or if you’re in the midst of one.

You will need…
-1 teaspoon of good quality yellow mustard

Directions
Muster up some courage, and just take that little sucker straight.

14. Snack on almonds

A natural remedy for heartburn from Reader’s Digest, eat some almonds after every meal, every snack, every time you ingest something basically. Try to track down organic almonds if possible. These tasty nuts do something to seemingly neutralize the juices in your stomach, relieving and preventing some instances of heartburn.

You will need…
-3 to 4 almonds

Directions…
Directly after every meal, every snack, basically every time you ingest something, eat 3-4 almonds afterwards. There’s no need to eat more, unless of course you want to munch on some more, but keep in mind that in excess some people have found almonds trigger heartburn, kind of like how they help tension headaches but can trigger migraines.

15. A cup of chamomile

Having a spot of chamomile tea about ½ – 1 hour before you plan on going to sleep can help reduce inflammation in your stomach, and possibly balance out the acidity levels as well. It also does wonders for relieving stress, which can trigger acid reflux, and will help you sleep through the night as well. You can use instant chamomile tea, or you can easily make your own fresh.

You will need…
-1 teaspoon dried chamomile flower petals
-Strainer
-1 cup of boiling water
-Honey or lemon (optional)

Directions
Boil one cup of water in a cooking pot, and then reduce the heat. Stir in 1 teaspoon of dried chamomile petals, and let them simmer for 45 seconds. Remove from heat and let the petals soak for another minute or two before straining them. Pour the tea into a mug, and add a bit of honey or lemon if you wish.

When I was very young, around 5 or 6, I remember hearing my babysitter talk about heartburn, and I was horrified. I asked her if it meant your heart was on fire and she said “yes.” I paused and then said “like, there are actually flames around your heart?” My babysitter nodded solemnly. Now, of course, I know better than that, but it’s still called heartburn for a reason. The searing, burning, pain does indeed feel like someone lit a fire in your chest, and let the flames spread to your throat.

Certain medications may quell the discomfort, but they can have long-term side effects, create dependency, are hard on your system, and often times aren’t even necessary for occasional acid reflux. It may be awhile of trial and error when using natural remedies to find what works best to treat your heartburn, but in the long run, it’s well worth it.

    I have suffered serious acid reflux for years and it is really debilatating :( It effects what I can eat, drink, do and pretty much every aspect of my life. I am so sick of it and have tried everything from OTC medicine to prescription proton pump inhibitors and none of it works. Anyone try any of these? I really want to give the natural route a go but don’t know where to start.

    • Dixie Stine says:

      I’ve recently tried aloe juice. It seems to be working pretty well.

    • V says:

      I “used” to have heartburn BAD so did my sister in law – we both started drinking 1 tsp vinegar in 8 ounces of water every morning …. ABSOLUTELY NO MORE HEARTBURN!!

    • BilB says:

      My general quick fix is milk. For a worse attack I make an egg nog. The thinking here is that the acid cogeals the protien in the egg, forming a raft to help contain the acid. Same effect as puting vineger in water when poaching an egg.

      Long term, load up your diet wth green beans thin sliced the grandma way. Beans are alkaline foods which are also (I believe) high in vitamin A. This vitamin is important for maintaining the duodenal lining which goes from your lips to the other end internally. This also helps keep mouth ulcers at bay.

      Keep sliced green beans in you freezer. When your diet goes wobbly, cook up a whole bowl of beans and force it down any way you can. This will reset your system very quickly.

      A quick fix for mouth ulcers I swill the mouth with a rough red wine. The alcohol and the tanin seem to get the infection under control quickly.

      • Terri Cesare Arnold says:

        @BilB – Please, I am begging you, may I have your recipe for the eggnog? I am going to try the green beans now as I have a pound at home. However, what do you mean when you say “thin sliced the grandma way”? My grandmothers passed away when I was 2 and my mother was not a willing cook. I have been in so much pain from this heartburn for 3 weeks now. I eat healthy, no red meat, only water and herbal teas to drink. So I am not sure what is causing this. Thank you in advance!

        • LaTia says:

          You sound like a young person. Have you try checking your calcium and other minerals. my acid reflux started when I became hypercalcemic. Hopefully it will all go away when they remove the irritating parathyroid.

    • derek says:

      It may sound weird but i have found a hot shower somehow helps. I have no idea why but it does for me. I just let the hot water hit my stomach and back of my neck. Otherwise real gingerale and aloe vera juice help calm things down.I am gonna try chamomile tonight.

    • gina says:

      my husband used the apple cider vinegar and it worked. he stopped the pepcid pills completely. when he feels a flare-up coming on, he takes some

    • Kristen says:

      I used to have really bad heartburn. The kind that would keep me up for a day and a half until I finally had to purge my contents. I found out that diet was my #1 cause so I cut out all processed and preserved food. Also vinegar works well. Must be the apple cider vinegar. The white vinegar does not work at all. Mustard helps me also. Chamomile tea is great for a lot of things. Also you can find digestive enzymes at your local health food market. I suggest using these when you eat. That is finally what rid me totally of heartburn. Along with daily use of probiotics. My overall health has greatly improved and I haven’t had heartburn in 3 months!!!!! :) Now that’s really something for me. I was on Medication for a year. It worked at first, then my body got used to it and it totally quit on me.

    • Susy says:

      I have had severe heart burn during pregnancies. I took a 1/4 Papaya, tossed it in the blender added some water and sugar to my liking, blended, and there I had the best remedie for heartburn. My husband said even inhaling the aroma of the juice helped his heartburn. I drank a cup before going to bed, and was usually even able to get rid of the gas in my stomach. But I’m not sure how many of you can get fresh Papaya. I have heard that you can buy it dried and ground in capsules though too.

    • Janice says:

      I’ve tried the yellow mustard one. This seems to work during the heartburn you get from not having enough acid in your stomach. However, it does not work for heartburn from having too much acid. I have not figured out how to tell the difference, so there have been times that this has worked, but there have also been times that it has made my heartburn worse.

    • David Latham says:

      Fuji applies the sweeter the apple the better it works.

    • Aaron says:

      To Jerry

      Try making your own aloe juice. For this you will need
      1 Fresh aloe leaf – cut , strip off the green outside skin. Then you left with clear aloe with some yellowish outside. Cut and strip off as much of the yellowish outside. Then you are left with clear aloe. Note – the yellowish stuff can give a laxative effect.
      Blend with a cup of apple juice, cup of orange juice, qtr cup water.

      Its really good and soothes. Way healthier than gavascon.

    • Debbie havens says:

      I get heartburn alot nothing ever works but today I tried the mustard and my heartburn was gone. Thank you so much

      Debbie

    • rachelle says:

      The mustard works!! :)

    • Doug says:

      Jerry, I get stomach acid pretty bad periodically, but never really in the esophagus. I’ve taken Zantac Tums Prilosec and all the rest which usually work. I happened t be without last night and my friend suggested eating a full lemon wedge and a glass of water. Slightly nasty but relief in less than a minute!!!!! Incredible!

    • Danny says:

      My Step-Father had severe heartburn and it turned out to be a tumor in his esophagus that was keeping the stomach valve open and if he would of went to the doctor for simple heartburn it would of been not as bad and very treatable. So yeah its always good to go to the doctor! mnjj

    • Anita says:

      Its 3:15am I am up reading all of this, I woke up choking and throat burning – not sure what is going on and I don’t recall this ever happening to me ever before. I have been put in the hospital for some type of acid reflux problem but the only reason I ended up at the hospital was because my chest had been hurting and it felt like too much pressure and I was kept at the hospital under observation for over a day and that’s when I found out I had that problem. I started off getting Prilosec when I left the hospital but that got expensive so I got the plain label at Walmart Acid Reducer and those worked just the same. I haven’t had no problems for over five years and now here I go again.

      Thank you for all this feedback here on this site.

    • Annie says:

      I couldn’t sleep and couldn’t find my tums. I just tried a teaspoon of yellow mustard after reading a bunch of these posts. Well about 20 min. Ago. I’m either making myself believe it’s working or it really is working. I am about to try to sleep again:)

  2. Jen says:

    I have tried some of the above and found that, for myself, soemtimes they work and sometimes they dont. I know that is not very helpful…BUT what I CAN tell you was a major trigger for me was MINT gum. I was told, as a child, that mint can sooth your stomach ache, so I chewed gum constantly without it helping. Until one day, a nurse told me to try fruit flavored gum, like berry or strawberry. She said stay away from mint and cinnamon. Same is true for toothpaste. I changed from adult toothpaste (way too much mint) to a childs toothpaste WITH flouride that tasted like strawberry. My dentist said it is jut the same as adult toothpaste as long as it has flouride. I tried aloe juice, and it was ok for the one bottle I tried (very expensive and hard to find). Deffinately track your triggers and cut them out. I am doing much better after cutting out coffee, mint and beer.

    I do hope this helps someone out there…

  3. Cheri says:

    I have tried all but the baking soda and what worked best for me was the apple cider vinegar.

  4. Sandy says:

    I didn’t believe this until I tried it but eat celery before bedtime. It works foe me.

  5. Allison says:

    After a painful night of suffering I tried a banana and the honey. Seperately of course. I also drank a 8oz glass of half and hald…why you ask becasue grandpa said so. The combination has helped some but I dont know. Tonight has been one of the worse night I’ve ever had. I take prilosetc 2 to 3 times a day, zantac one daily, and usually a few tums. Ive had a chronic cough from the acid too. I’m going to sleep in the recliner tonight with hopes of actually sleeping. Anyone else have it this terribly bad?

    • SusanH says:

      Yes… Stopped the Prilosec. Did a colon cleanse and a gall bladder cleanse. Started taking Betaine – a digestive enzyme with every meal. Stopped caffeine. Started daily probiotic. Started organic juicing- 2 carrotts and an apple daily and have added to that with… sometimes greens, or cucumber or celery or beets etc . Started fermented vegetables. Stopped drinking water with food. Don’t eat 3 hours or so before bed. Don’t overeat. Sweet Gerkin pickle juice helped as does Baking soda in water as does Apple Cider Vinegar with “mother”. Then the Betaine started making me feel too full and bloated and was able to stop it. Still follow everything else. No more prilosec! – That stuff will kill ya. As will Acid Reflux if you don’t get it under control. Seems there may be a connection to hypothyroidism. Heal your gut and get your life back!

      • melanie h says:

        I have suffered with reflux for a long time, and I recently have been referred to an endochronologist to check my thyroid maybe that appointment will help me..

    • Ganny says:

      I took Prilosec for 17 yrs. and then it stopped!!! For the past year, I’ve tried everything except mustard. I took ginger tea with lemon and honey, or apple cider vinegar with honey in water, or ice cold small red delicious apples, ( works every time). I chew crystalized ginger, or ginger candy. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t. I was in terrible pain for over the past year. I talked with my primary physician recently and he had the Gastroentestlogist (sp) prescribe Nexium. It works, so far.

      • betty says:

        Hi Ganny, just wanted to tell you , please don’t be fooled by nexium, I used it for about eight years, I ran out about a year and half ago,
        And was unable to get it, after being off of it for afew hours my stomach felt like I had drank scalding hot water, I was unable to even drink water, unable to bend over, it didn’t mater if I eat or not, I was in pain.
        I am some better now , but I have had a long hard battle. I have prayed , and tried everything natural that I could find to help.
        I use only baking soda and distilled or filtered water for the acid, it works the best for me. I boil cabbage and drink it broth with salt only , it helps
        Actually I have learned to like it as a drink with meals , I try to eat lots of green leafy vegetables, yellow fruit and vegetables , fish , Turkey, salmon, I have a book that I found at a thrift store that has helped me greatly. It’s called:
        Health boosters for seniors
        I was in my early fifties when I started taking nexium, learned after I got off it that you are supposed to only stay on it for a short time,
        I think it was killing me.
        So I want to encourage you to read about it and it’s side affects on internet.
        We really wont need the meds often if we learn how to eat so we get the vitamins and minerals that our body needs.
        I am still searching to learn all I can about how to feed my body healthy foods and praying for wisdom on what I can do to get well. God Bless, I pray this has helped .

    • Aria says:

      Yes I have only had it for three days I’m 21 years old and am not pregnant and had my first heartburn :( it is mostly in my throat just burning away the odd thing is it’s not in my chest really only in my throat and even feels like it’s going into my ears the burning is absolutely dreadful and has been non stop for three days any suggestions is it what I think it is????

    • rose says:

      Check into kidney problems, major reason for stomach disturbances. Get a good probiotic. Syntol, or Bioinnovations have acid protection so it gets where you need it. Most don’t have this so they are a waste of time and money. Syntol has digestive enzymes in it.

    • Cathie says:

      I have had a chronic cough and acid reflux for 6 weeks and can’t get rid of either one . I take protonix and nexium daily and neither one of them work. I haven’t tried any natural remedies yet but I am looking for a remedy….I also have slept in the recliner for 6 weeks….need help fast.

      • CHerisse says:

        I have found that going to a chiropractor to keep your spine aligned especially in the mid-back helps with heartburn symptoms alot!! Find a GOOD chiropractor in your area and give it a try. :)

    • Bren says:

      Yeah I suffer with it everyday for over 10 years, I stay up all night so fed up with it. The pilss don’t work anymore. I guess I need to quit everything I enjoy in life, drinking beer, eating spicy foods, cheese etc it sucks but I have to do something I can’t do this anymore the pain is to much. I am going to try the Vinegar and change my diet. I will let you know in about a week if I have any improvement. Thanks everyone for Ideas

  6. Paula says:

    Bananas actually give me heartburn. But I’ve had luck with the baking soda remedy. Just be prepared to have a few good belches. Think of the reaction you get when you mix vinegar and baking soda – that’s what’s happening with the stomach acid.

  7. Jane Gregory says:

    @Sandy how surprising. I have had people telling me that celery is good for treating heartburn symptoms but didn’t know that it actually works.

    Thanks for that nugget of information :)

  8. Randi says:

    My dad has some type of reaction to certain foods that is immediate. It almost appears as if he is going to get sick, but he describes it as if it feels like his chest is closing up and hard to breathe. While at dinner one night, he had been told about something to try (and said he had before) and requested some straight lemon juice (offered for them to bring him to lemon slices to squeeze, but the waiter we had was wonderful and did it for him). He drank that and within 2 or 3 minutes had immediate relief. I will say he has mentioned he also does the vinegar and it works. I haven’t had the nerve to try these yet, due to taste, but he swears by both of these options.

  9. Lorraine Adams says:

    You may want to add Licorice Root to your list. It works wonders for heartburn. I have been using it for years to control mine.

    Also, drinking Gentian Root tea at the onset of heartburn helps to get things moving and dispel the heartburn. Unfortunately, it is VERY bitter, (probably why it works so well). I just take a few mouthfuls.

    One other thing I have been using lately is d-Limonene (Orange Peel Oil). I take one every other day for 30 days and then stop till needed again. It seems to having a coating action on the esophagus and it gives you wonderful fresh breath.

    :)

    • Annabell says:

      Lorraine, licorice root does work because it helps to thicken the mucosal lining of the esophagus and stomach, however make sure to get deglycerized licorice root because the regular kind raises blood pressure significantly in some people. I have had great success with licorice root. Fennel also helps.

  10. Diane says:

    I like your website and am a fan of natural cures. However, if acid reflux persists see a doctor. Frequent acid reflux can lead to Barrett’s esophagus which is a precursor for cancer. My husband was fortunate that his cancer was caught in early stage 1.

    • LUCKY LADY says:

      I have Barrett’s esophagus and take meds but last night I had the worse heartburn ever and its going on today thats why I am reading this to ty and find help

  11. DFaye says:

    I had been telling my doctor’s for years that I had acid reflux and would be woken up in the middle of the night by it and sometimes having to run to the bathroom to vomit. It was always overlooked and not taken seriously. One day last year, I finally got to see a gastro doctor because of my body swelling, stomach, legs, throat, ankles etc.. Then I remembered a commercial I saw on T.V. and asked him “What are the symptoms of esophageal cancer? “..while thinking about my acid reflux. He thought it was a good idea to get an Endoscopy done. He found I have Barrett’s Esophagus, hiatal hernia, and multiple ulcers in part of my stomach. I had a second endoscopy done 6 months later, luckily the biopsy of my esophagus was not yet cancerous, and my ulcers had all healed. I do encourage everyone who has acid reflux to get an endoscopy done, it’s really important! I started having heartburn when I was a teenager but didn’t know what it was back then, and had it when I was pregnant as a lot of women do. Now I can’t ever take aspirin (doctor “thinks” the ulcers were caused by using too many Excedrin migraine pills, although I told him that I only took about 5 in one month’s time), and have to try to never have an acid reflux attack because of my Barrett’s esophagus. Have to have an endoscopy done every 3 years for now on. In the morning, in my coffee- I add a teaspoon of coconut oil, a teaspoon of honey, and shake in some cinnamon. I started doing this a month and a half before my 2nd endoscopy and believe this is what healed my ulcers;)

    • Nancy says:

      so how did it heal all u said was u had endo done u had ulcer Barre tts esophagus so what change did u mk that ulcers was all gone . was it the coconut oil with honey with shake cinn. other say no cinnamon,mint and caffine

  12. Sherri Fisher says:

    I read that dill pickle juice will provide instant relief. I didn’t believe that at all but I love pickle juice so I figured next time I have heartburn really bad I’d try it. It didn’t provide instant relief but within just a few minutes my heartburn was much better. Not gone, but a lot better.

  13. BilB says:

    See earlier reply to first comment.

    My wife had a reflux bad enough to wake her. She had some milk (then went back to bed). It did not last long. So I made her the eggnog (with some sugar), and she is asleep. It was the curried sausages. 2am.

    The beans are the best diet stabiliser. I can’t get my family eating them regularly. They’d rather eat for taste rsther thsm health. So I have to dose myself up with the bean bowl treatment periodically to keep healthy. Gourmey chopped beans may look trendy on a plate, but it is a terrible way the eat beans in volume. Last week i demonstrated the bean slicing technique to my 15 year old so have now passed on that little very important bit that i learnt from my Grandmother. Sliced beans are now hard to find at the super market. It is all long chopped beans. That is just lazy manufacturing.

    Most of us have acid reflux problems now and again. In majority of cases this is harmless. If the problem becomes persistent and goes untreated, the heartburn can develop into GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease). In chronic and severe cases the esophagus can become scarred – the patient may have difficulty swallowing, and the risk of developing cancer of the esophagus increases significantly. .:”‘

    Try Siberian pine nut oil- I get mine online from ‘ the other option’. My dad and I have both been on it for different digestive disorders and its the closest thing to a miracle in a bottle. Totally natural and totally healing all the way through the digestive tract.

  16. Summer says:

    Just wanted to mention a disease my son has recently been diagnosed with — it’s eosinophilic esophagitis. It’s a condition where white blood cells (eosinophils) build up on the lining of the esophagus making the chest tight and causing food to get stuck — like the symptoms Randi described her father had (May 23 2013). My son was hospitalized when he couldn’t swallow (not even saliva) for over 24 hours and the endoscopy tore his esophagus. They prescribe Nexium and allergy testing. They believe allergies play a role in causing the white blood cells to form. Experts still searching for definitive causes and treatment, but just thought I’d share this info since its a relatively newly named disorder.

    • candice says:

      hi ive just been diagnosed with this so im taking apo prozole n waiting for my allrgy test i find it hard to eat , what is he doing else besides the pills?

  17. joe says:

    i would try all of these remedies but warn people to steer clear of any ‘sugarfree’ product like chewing gums. That crap (Aspartame) and its cousins is not your friend

  18. Andi says:

    Interesting ideas and comments. I can’t do baking soda because of the salt. Bananas can give me heartburn as another person here reveals, too. Milk doesn’t help. Vinegar is outright terrifying, but now that I’ve read the explanation I’m trying it- right now……..BTW – I DO keep sugar free gum on my nightstand, because it really helps me when I get heartburn lying down….I’m reluctant to say the vinegar has helped because I drank it 2 minutes ago, but I’m having instant relief. Wow. Will come back and tell you if it doesn’t last. Wow. just wow.

  19. Patti says:

    I’ve tried the vinegar but it set my stomach on fire when i drank it. My reflux is at the point now that i have really bad chest pains that make me feel like I’m gonna pass out. I have tried the nexium and it worked before but hate the idea of the side affects. Milk used to work but not anymore. Trying to stay away from the aspertame so the sugarfree gum is out. Think I’ll try the green beans, can’t hurt anymore than it already does. Thanks for the info….

    • Martin says:

      Sounds like your stomach linings are inflamed. Avoid any artificial sweeteners at all cost,
      as well as all soda pops. Take L Glutamine 5-10 gr. p. day on empty, Nutricillin on empty and Pep Zin Gi with every meal. Once your linings are healed take 2 tbs. Bragg’s apple cider vinegar with a 1/3 tsp. baking soda (aluminium free) in 8 oz. of water every day. Freeze organic lemons, grate one every morning on a cheese grater dissolve 1 1/2 tbs of natural unprocessed honey in a cup of hot water, add the gratings and drink it before breakfast. That should solve your problems.

  20. Sharon says:

    Has anyone tried taking Slippery Elm? I’ve been reading that this has been a digestive remedy for centuries and it is supposed to coat the stomach and esophagus protecting it from the acid. However, the name, Slippery Elm, makes it sound somewhat ominous. I’m going to check with an herb expert and find out more about this.

    • Jenny says:

      Slippery elm is brilliant! Really works. I get it direct from a qualified herbalist. You use 1 teaspoonful of slippery elm powder in some warm water or milk. Make sure you stir well and drink every bit. Used it last night after two days of awful acid reflux and slept soundly for the first time for ages. This morning totally settled down. Also find Apple cider vinegar (suggested above) and ginger tea helpful and soothing.

  21. marlene says:

    So sorry to read that so many folks have this issue. I have an uncomfortable, sometimes tight throat and sometimes it affects my voice. I have no heartburn…thank God. In fact I feel great except for my throat!
    I eat well…no coffee, tomato sauces (miss my pizza) . I have decaf herbal teas and I eat fish, chicken and turkey. I eat salads and vegies. I finish eating at 5:30PM and have a little snack about 8:30PM. I exercise (now on an empty stomach so acid does not come up from my food. Gastro Dr. did an endoscopy and said evertyhing looks fine. ENT said throat and vocal cords look good. I give up! I have this for 10mos and can not figure it out. I also began drinking Almond Milk….it is supposed to neutralize stomach acids.
    I’m open to suggestions!
    Thanks

    • sayera says:

      Even my husband is suffering from the same problem. Everything is fine with him except with his constant throat clearing. We tried everything, done the endoscopy as well.. nothing is wrong but the acid does not stop from reaching oesophagus when the rhythm of his body breaks down.. open to suggestions.. please please help.. anybody…

  22. Ole says:

    “11. Smoking + alcohol = heart on fire” “12. Maintain a healthy weight”

    Those are both very wrong… What causes heartburn, is eating bad stuff, that has been classified as good eating, such as Potatoes, Beans, Rice etc… Things that are not natural to our bodies!

    If you wanna get rid of heartburn forever, and not have weight issues, then go Paleo or LCHF, it also gives you the joy, of drinking alcohol, without worrying if you’ll gain weight ( Another myth ).

  23. mehitabel says:

    I just came across this article today….looking for some relief for persistent gerd. I’ve been paleo/low carb for about 6 years — lost 50 lbs — still persistent gerd. I don’t take ppi’s because i haven’t wanted to shut down stomach acid…so, for years…i sip sodium bicarb water…as the need arises….and it arises…a lot.

    Last doc visit, my kidneys seem to be not clearing creatinine like they should. So in my research, i find that sodium bicarb is normally considered safe, even long-term — but combining it with milk…or calcium in any form…can create a milk-alkali syndrome, which sounds like hell on kidneys…

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milk-alkali_syndrome
    ————————-

    I’ve tried the cider vinegar, betaine hcl, ppi’s, paleo diet, very low carb…and now problems with sodium bicarb…not being enough and maybe, along with calcium….doing a number on kidneys.
    The search goes on…

    all the best,

  24. maureen says:

    Any suggestion for Hiatus hernia ? was diagnosed last yr, prescribed Nexium but never took, had no symptoms until last month. been having accupuncture treatments slowly getting some relief.

    • JANE says:

      ive tried acupuncture and it works well if you keep going for a while

      I have a systemic acid problem, some say if you have an enlarged liver, you will have reflux.’ that its also the liver not doing its job.

  25. Dee says:

    has anyone thought about allergies or food intollerence? I was told I have Gerd… Eosophagitus. Burning pain in stomach, indigestion, bloating, heartburn, gas etc to the point of vomiting 3 nights a week!!!! Through keeping a diary of food Ive found an intollerence to Lactose, Wheat and Sulphites and by keeping them out of my diet the problems have stopped

    • Misty says:

      I have all those symptoms. I am soy intolerant. I get the most violent, painful gas and then comes diarrhea so bad I think I am going to crap my colon out (sorry for the graphic description) If I eat soy protein, I throw up after hours and hours of pain, heart burn, indigestion and nausea. If I have oil, I get the gas and diarrhea. If I have soy sauce I usually just get really REALLY bad gas. My body doesn’t know what to do with soy, either it refuses to digest it and it ferments in my stomach and I vomit or it sends it on a fast track out the other end, like a luge. And guess what? Soy is in everything!!!!!!!!!! I can imagine how hard it is to find food that you can tolerate if you have multiple intolerances. A trip to the grocery store probably takes you hours since you have to read absolutely every label.

  26. Misty says:

    Tried the mustard and it lit me on FIRE!!!! The pain is so bad that it gave me goose pimples and is making me very nauseous! I will wait a few minutes to see if it will pass…

    10 minutes later
    Pain subsided, and heart burn gone for now. Still nauseous, but could be from the cold mustard glob sitting in my stomach. Waiting for a burp, that is what usually sets it off.

    a few minutes later
    burped and a slight burn come with it, not like usual, not as bad. Going back to bed, will post again if this works for the rest of the night.

  27. Rich says:

    I was born with a hiatus hernia and had to sleep sitting up for the first year of my life. Since I was a teenager I have suffered heartburn and over the years I have found the best things to do are…
    avoid: coffee, bananas, alcohol and dairy.
    Keep your weight down… (the single best thing you can do do). It sounds counter intuitive but drink a half lemon squeezed into a glass of water every morning, eat raw greens and raw almonds too

  28. Diane Var says:

    I’ve read that you should avoid mint gum as this may exacerbate the situation. Stick to cinnamon or fruit gum.

  29. George says:

    I have had three liver transplants and suffer from chronic reflux. I get reasonable results from ginger ale, but I also find that eating a lemon after my last meal also works.

  30. Angie says:

    Go easy on the bicarb as it throws out of sync some of the constituents that keep your blood good. Also soda water is fast acting . 3 mouthfuls is all you need.

  31. Sara says:

    You should look into the idea that reflux is sometimes caused by too LITTLE acid in the stomach. This generally happens later in life. It is remedied by taking a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in water.

    Sara

  32. Greg K says:

    I agree with you Sara. I’m soon to be 56 and have had acid issues as long as I can remember but it always responded to antacids or when very bad, baking soda.
    NOTE: It’s criticial that the baking soda/water be mixed until absoultely clear or your kidneys will take a pounding trying to process raw soda granules!
    I’ve had really bad sinuses for years and seen many specialists who end up throwing in the towel when their whizbang drugs don’t work.
    Recently I had spinal fusion surgery and got what I think is full blown GERD or LPR from eating laying down. Knowing what I know now I would have eaten soft foods or nutritional liquids. I don’t have to tell anyone about reflux chest pains….chest pain is from hell!
    The reason I mentioned sinuses is because I now believe I have had silent reflux for years and years…so in a weird way having GERD might be an answer to the hell of sinus infections and may possibly save me from the horrors of throat or espohageal cancers. I have an endoscopy scheduled for April 23rd so hopefully will FINALLY get some validation that it’s NOT all my imagination.
    I’m going to try the raw unpurified ACV today. Tums, OTC omeprazole, baking soda….nothing that used to work is working like it used to in the past so my reflux has definately evolved.

    Great site/blog! Thanks for the info and I wish you all good/better health.

  33. john says:

    something that helped me is

    cut 2 slivers of ginger

    chew and eat the gingers raw. Yes I also tried with hot water but it wasn’t as effective.

    It is gross and spicy but seems to help.

    I hope it can help someone reading.

    natural remedies are better than others to relief heartburn!

  35. Lisa says:

    I have an on going problem with hoarse voice and constant sore throat. Have had severe burning chest pain before, do not get that now – just very sore throat, constantly. Tried cider vinegar at night and throat definitely less sore. Going to keep taking it. Thanks alot. Need to work out now how to heal the damage – I have heard aloe gel good for burns.

  36. Alan says:

    I love all of your suggestions. Great website. Thank you.

  37. Marianne says:

    After a long sufferring day at work were no antacid helped cure my pain i logged on to the trusty internet for advice.. my mum had already bought me aloe juice so I took a quick swig of it while reading all the advice and comments here.. it partially relieved the burning pain.. i then decided to go for the cider vinegar.. 1 large spoon made my chest feel on fire but then slowly settled.. lastly for good measure i had a cup of natural apple juice.. which has rid me completely of heartburn!
    I never thought vinegar or apples would be on the list of remedies! I assumed these were acidic and would make me worse but low and behold they were a godsend!

    I read earlier today cabbage and garlic are good at battling ulcers / Heartburn so they are on tonights dinner menu alongside a large helping of green beans!.. .thanks for the advice! :)

  38. mary says:

    Hello guys! This website is very interesting and all of your comments are also helpful indeed. Will try those once I get home. Now, I’m having fever maybe to due to my GERD. I was diagnosed last Friday and I still have the feeling that something’s stuck on my chest. I don’t have any problem with my tummy but on my chest especially when inhaling then the problem is there. Though, the pain that I have now on my chest is already tolerable. What bothers me now is that I’m having a fever, should I be worry about this?

  39. Karen says:

    Trying the bicarbonate … Hope it works

  40. kate says:

    baking soda, sometimes enzymes work. put extra pillows to elevate chest

  41. Tyler says:

    Yea i have been having problems too but i have had problems for a long long time u guys think i should get it checked it it seems like anything i eat anymore ust gives me heart burn

  42. Frances says:

    Anyone has this similar symptoms? Does not feel heartburn or spit up from stomach to throat but always has the acid taste in mouth daily and occasional stomach tender to touch. What remedies anyone has used for this specific symptoms?

  43. Vanessa says:

    I have heartburn and reflux problems. I’ve tried working out on an empty stomach with out success. Ive tried vinegar probably the worst one ive tried could not breath after that and when it started to go away it came back with a vengeance. Tried lemon water no help. Tried baking soda in water, it worked just before I ran to the bathroom to vomit, I’ve always had a problem with trying to burp and this was bad for this particular remedy. I had found that ice cream works only it caused me to gain 30# because I was desperate for relief. I have not found that coffee is a problem in fact coffee helps with achy knees. Mustard is the same as vinagar bad choice for me. Im trying to avoid pills. Why do the beans need to be cut a certain way? Maybe ill try that. Ive also tried glutton free and low carb this didn’t seem to work either.

  44. Sunod says:

    This is very useful:I will definitely start taking these natural ramedies right from tomorrow;thanks a lot

    I knew not to have that pizza. Was sooo good though. Been up ever sence with horrible heartburn. I tried the mustard. Was really hard to get down for me but I think it worked. It’s been about an hour so I’m goin to bed.

  49. Anne says:

    Hi,
    I’ve been searching the web for acid reflux, digestion,… every thing and anything concerning helping with digestion. We’ve also been looking into this with the medical team and pharmacist. We seem to be coming back to the beginning every time. I’m not having a lot of success with whatever I’m trying: prevacid, diovol, senium, ……

    I’ve also tried: camomile, fennel, grapefruit, almond milk (We are raw vegan), water, lemon with water, cucumber / lemon / mint and water (delicious but not for me…), bananas (they make it worst),

    Oh … Almost forgot… I have advanced gastro intestinal cancer… I’m just looking for some kind of relief so that I can at least sleep more comfortably at night. Thank you all for your help! God bless….

  50. Lotus says:

    I would be careful with lemon or apple cider, it is pretty harsh, and if you have damaged of you lining , it may be irritated.
    Stay away from spicies as well, even ginger in this case.
    Tomatoes might also case the problem, similar with dairy.

  51. Helena says:

    Why I Don’t Recommend Baking Soda for Acid Reflux

    Many people are familiar with the use of a spoonful of baking soda in water for heartburn relief, but there are a couple reasons I didn’t include it. First off, baking soda is very high in sodium, so taking an entire spoonful of it could be a problem for some people. Second, and more importantly, adding baking soda to an already over-full stomach can cause the stomach to explode – no joke.

  52. Carol says:

    I suffered sore hoarse throat and cough for 22 years and was examined by every specialist known to man with no result until a speech therapist told me to raise the head of the bed – there is something called Silent GERD – no other symptoms of heartburn but at night stomach contents creep up. Within two days cough and throat improved – six months later I’m a new person. I almost didn’t believe her. Such an easy cure – not just pillows, you must raise the bed. Note: I already knew that if I gained even two pounds my symptoms were worse – so fat plays a huge part in this disease. Years ago I lost ten pounds in one month by eating just vegetables and rice, with nuts for snack, apple for dessert. No sauces of any kind. Five days after you start, suddenly food tastes wonderful – an apple is equivalent to cheesecake! Lots of chopping & dicing, but worth it.

  53. dee says:

    I’ve had acid reflux for a around 6 months.My doctor put me on meds for 3 months.After I stopped taking them,2 months after it was back.I’m going to try the mustard.I stopped eating fried foods and anything with tomato in it.I now am staying away from processed food .Veggies And chicken cooked in my flavor wave.It has been a struggle though because I did love my spaghetti sauces,My acid reflux is annoying ,I have so much gas and. heartburn 10 minutes after I eat and my stomach is growing as if I never ate.I do have a lot of stress though,which I have to work on getting rid of.It can be very stressful wanting to get rid of acid reflux for good and it comes back after my first time having it and I was. on meds.I would really like it gone fr good without needs,a natural way.I tried white vinegar and I hurled over in pain,it felt like it was tearing e inside.I think if I would try apple cider vinegar. I will go really slow ad start by dipping a spoon in it and licking the spoon after.

    • Shirl says:

      Dee, I have carried a sore throat for a few months. The burning in the mouth and throat is quite irritating. I think it stems from diagnosed acid reflux, but I do not feel it coming up the esophagus. I am connecting it to excessive belching, however which occurs after eating. The evening seems the worst , and I try to control that by Apple Cider Vinegar in honey water. My ratio roughly for my vinegar cocktail: 1/2 t. honey in 1/3 c warm water, blend; add -2 t acv, stir. I do not want large quantity and fortunately, this much works at the time. Generally need this by or after supper. Also, celery is cooling and feels good on my throat, and gives stomach relief. I try not to take meds for this as I take enough for other things.

  54. K says:

    I have severe reflux. I found out by accident really, that when I drink soy milk (silk specifically for some reason) it calms right down. I’m starting to drink a small glass before bed.

  55. Beverly says:

    Almonds give me acid reflux. I just tried the baking soda remedy and it was instant (albeit nasty) relief! Thanks so much!

  56. Karen says:

    This info is fantastic. I think I’ve had GERD for several years. Saw GI about 4 yrs ago and he said raise the bed, dont’ eat before bed and take Nexium. I did for about a week but KNEW it’s bad for me so stopped. GERD has been off and on for years now. This last week it’s RAGING. Headed for GI tomorrow. DGEL deglycerized licorice pills worked great for awhile and now they aren’t. I’ll try ANYTHING. Thanks everyone for the tips.

    • Rebecca says:

      I have badddddd acid reflux as well and it affects my throat. My throat feels tight and choaking. I have gotten a bit of relief from potato juice. Hope this helps you. This GERD has been hell for me

  57. Pam says:

    I got GERD after my gallbladder surgery. Can’t take any of the ulcer or GERD medicines because side affects were so bad. Had to change my lifestyle. Exercise, no smoking, next caffeine, no spices. Things I’ve found work on it are cucumbers and apples after every meal. Also drinking chamomile tea and switched to coconut milk. Incorporate a lot b of exercises that strengthen your upper stomach.

  58. Maryann says:

    Hi I have recently had hand surgery and now I have bad acid reflux fells like it’s your heart but it’s not maybe from the pain of surgery gives me stress and anxiety on meds now still get the acid going to try the baking soda or vinegar hope it work all your comments are very helpful sorry for you all it’s such a drag

  59. Tammy says:

    This is approximately the third time I’ve had acid reflux and I’m only 27. Lord, if this is what getting older feels like, I’m not looking forward to it.

    I’m currently battling strep throat and this thing has woken up me about every 2 hours (conveniently when my instant relief heartburn/acid reflux chewables wear off). As rest is vital, and the pills are really not working, I figured I’d look into some of these remedies for relief.

    I tried the baking soda method and it tasted so horrible! Because of this alone, I am never doing this method ever again. I thought I was going to throw up just trying to take it down. I do, however, feel like it is helping my acid reflux though and the relief started pretty instantly… but the bloating/swelling in my stomach has increased, making me feel like a 4 month pregnant woman. I feel uncomfortable to say the least.

    I also ate a banana before taking the baking soda, and made myself some instant honey chamomile tea (great for calming my strep throat as well). Best of luck to you all out there.

  60. christine says:

    I had terrible heartburn until my doctor realized I was lactose intolerant. I was taken off all dairy products and my acid reflux was gone. So I suggest you might consider removing dairy from your diest for a couple of weeks and see what happens.

  61. Betty says:

    I have suffered off and on for years with heartburn due to a hiatal hernia. Tonight was the worst it’s been in a long time. After reading the remedies and comments I tried the baking soda. My grandmother swore by this and now my mother uses it. I put a half teaspoon in 8 ounces of water. I’ve been sipping it slowly and after 20 minutes I feel so much better!

  62. Val says:

    Just tried the gum suggestion worked within seconds of chewing! YEAH!!

  63. Cj says:

    I get very bad bouts every so often, partly because of medication and partly to do with rich foods. Peppermint tea and a ginger biscuit help but its a slow-to-act relief. I cant take the tablets like gavascon or rennies, so Im a bit stuck. Not sure if its because of too much or too little acid but it makes me extremely weak

  64. dec says:

    elsewhere one remedy I found that works for me is similar to what posted here – in this case, a tablespoon of ACV + 1/4 tsp of BICARBONATE OF SODA (+ water of course) . let bi-carb stop fizzing before adding water.

    depending on need. take 2-3 per day.

    not sure if that is what you mean by ‘baking soda’, but do not use ‘baking powder’ because it has tartaric acid added to the bi-carb soda (so baking rises w/o any acid in the ingredients in recipe).

    I have tried delicious apples, and honey, but nothing really worked until I tried the above.

  65. Serenity T says:

    OMG i have had heartburn for years. And it did not help that i had gastric sleeve surgery over a year ago.
    I had the worst attack tonight i have ever had..it had me in tears and it felt as if a hole was truly being burned into my esophagus…i was even vomiting the yellowish burning substance up ..i was taking tum after tum and it usually helps…not tonight
    I had some baking soda handy and i just kept sipping on that…its seems to be working now…
    Apparently i have way to much acid in my stomach.. Thank you all for the tips

  66. Abrar says:

    Drink a glass or two of cold milk, it works I am also practicing it. ;)

  67. kipmenet says:

    I did a tea spoonful of apple cider vinegar for a week and low carbs, I noticed a big change, I started even taking wine and back to road running this weekend I did 17 km run this weekend. I pity on still doing omeprazone and antacids, and visited best hospitals in Nairobi. I was on medication for two months and I even took H Pyloric kit to no avail. but this natural treatment did wonders.
