Acid Reflux Natural Remedies

It's unknown what, in turn, can cause that valve -- known as the lower esophageal sphincter -- to spasm improperly, though obesity, smoking, inactivity, large meals and dining close to bedtime are all risk factors. Additionally, some medications can also increase the risk of the condition, including antihistamines, nitrates and calcium channel blockers. Because many of the causes are lifestyle-related, the condition can be controlled through changes to diet and other behavior . Aside from discomfort, there are important reasons to prevent the condition, including an association with an increased risk of esophageal cancer. Unfortunately, though, rates of GERD are on the rise: One recent Norwegian study found that there are now 1.5 times as many acid reflux sufferers as there were in 2001. While there are medications to treat acid reflux -- and symptom managing medicine, like antacids, as well -- many people who suffer from acid reflux can treat their conditions exclusively with non-medical therapies. Here are some with a proven track-record: Loading Slideshow Sleep On Your Side Research shows that sleeping on your stomach can worsen acid reflux and, according to one team at Stanford, sleeping on your left side is more helpful than sleeping on your right. Eat Smaller Meals Large meals that overwhelm the esophageal sphincter and fill the stomach can amplify an acid reflux problem. Try reducing the size of your meals, even if you consume the same number of calories over the course of the day. Chew Gum Sugarless gum can help alleviate heartburn by increasing the production of saliva which, with its alkaline properties, helps neutralize acid. That can reduce the feeling of burn, though it doesn't prevent the acid from entering the esophagus in the first place.
