How to treat heartburn naturally – part 2 30 Dec 2019
In my last blog post, I shared some tips on natural way to trear hearburn, below are more tips:
1. Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
Because acid reflux actually occurs due to having very small amounts of acid in your stomach, raw apple cider vinegar may actually help keep it from occurring. Simply dissolve a tablespoon of it in a glass of water and drink it to improve your acid levels. However, more research still needs to be done on this. One study found that apple cider vinegar alleviated heartburn symptoms for some individuals, but the effects only lasted between 60 and 75 minutes.
2. Ginger Tea If you know that you're going to be consuming a huge meal, it may be helpful if you drink a cup of ginger tea at least 20 minutes before you start eating. Simply steep a 2-inch piece of ginger root in two cups of boiling water for five minutes, and then drink. Ginger not only has an anti-inflammatory effect, but also tightens your lower esophageal sphincter, thus preventing acid from refluxing.3. PapayaA study found that the enzyme papain may help promote better digestion, providing positive effects for people with heartburn, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and constipationReferenceshttps://repository.asu.edu/attachments/166181/content/Yeh_asu_0010N_15671.pdfhttps://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21990307https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20420113https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23524622
