hi there

am dr.surendiran

nice to meet you in healthcare magic

Processed foods and sugars are almost a guaranteed way to exacerbate acid reflux and create a bacterial imbalance in the stomach and intestinal tract. To combat this, eat fresh organic fruits and vegetables. An apple a day keeps big pharma away! Check out my brand new body cleansing diet! Taking a probiotics supplement like Latero-Flora will also help balance the bowel with good bacteria.

recommend taking one tablespoon of raw organic apple cider vinegar mixed in about 4 ounces of purified water before each meal. This will help calm the stomach and supports digestion. This remedy also works for acute episodes of acid reflux and is my favorite, fast-acting home remedy for acid reflux.

This amino acid naturally occurs in the human body and glutamine can be found in many dietary sources such as milk, eggs, fish, parsley, spinach and more. Glutamine is resistant to inflammation and reduces intestinal inflammation associated with acid reflux.

hope helped your query
