Acid Reflux: How To Beat Heart Burn

When acidic content of the stomach comes back up the esophagus it causes a sharp burning pain behind the breast bone. So how do we beat it naturally?

4 natural cures for heart burn

Ginger Tea: Prepare ginger tea by grating 1 tsp. of fresh ginger and steeping it into a tea ball or strainer and a cup full of hot water.

Fresh Carrot Juice:  Take a half a carrot and juice or blend it and drink. 

Baking Soda: It works! It just tastes awful. In an 8 ounce glass - put in one tablespoon of baking soda. Stir well. Drink the whole glass as fast as you can. (or slow... but not recommended due to taste)

Organic Aloe Vera Juice: Not everyone likes the taste of aloe vera juice. Try mixing it with a non-acidic fruit juice, such as apple or grape juice, to improve the taste.

Another tip: When you lie down make sure your head is elevated about 4 inches above your stomach so the content of your stomach stays there! Sounds logical. But sometimes we don't have time for logic in our mad lives. Keep life simple.


  1. Good advice. I love your devotion to all things natural. Might be a great to time to show folks why acid reflux happens and how to maintain a more alkaline body to prevent it in the first place! The Natural Health Page rocks!

  2. The maximum single dose of sodium bicarbonate powder should be 2 grams - half a teaspoonful, not a tablespoonful. This can be repeated two hourly if required.
