5 Natural Remedies For Acid Reflux

1. Holy Basil leaves:

Wash few leaves of the Holy Basil as soon as you feel a sharp sensation below your sternum or experience a sour/bitter after taste in your mouth. This is a way of body reacting to bouts of acidity. Holy Basil or ‘Tulsi’ has many medicinal qualities and fighting acidity is one of them.

2. Water:

Due to its neutral pH Balance, water is the ambrosia that helps you neutralize the pH balance in your stomach. It reduces the acid level in the stomach and guards the stomach lining from getting damaged; thus, leading to ulcers and acidity. It is advisable to drink a glass of lukewarm water before you sleep and after waking up in the morning. Do not drink water during meals.

3. Cinnamon:

Take cinnamon powder and boil it in some water. Simmer for a minute and strain it. It will start looking like tea liquor. Have that without adding anything and you will notice a change. It works as a natural antacid and helps in treating flatulence too.

4. Apple Cider Vinegar:

Although, it is acidic in nature, Apple Cider Vinegar has an alkalizing effect on the stomach lining. Having two teaspoons of this with a cup of water two times a day.

5. Buttermilk:

Also known as ‘Chaach’; a glass buttermilk with a teaspoon of roasted cumin powder mixed with roasted fenugreek seeds powder and coriander paste will give you relief as well as having it regularly will eradicate the acidity problem from your life.
