Have you ever said that?  I have.  A number of times!!!!  

What is it we are really saying?  That we are frustrated with how we feel or where we are in life.  It is perfectly normal for us to want to see improvement and not seemingly be going backwards.  

So, we look for answers.  We reach out to anyone or any company that appears to have the answer for EVERYONE.  

But we are not everyone.  

We are individuals.

And if we want to be healthier we need to look at what is going on with us PERSONALLY.  Boy, from experience, I will tell you that this is not an easy task!  Because usually, if we are looking for a solution, we are not sure what is going on.  Yeah, we know what the symptoms are:  fatigue, gas, inflammation, pain, mental fog, headaches, bellyaches, stuffy nose, or even worse, arthritis, diabetes, heart issues, etc

So, how do we find out what our bodies are trying to tell us?  Find someone that will walk you through the healing process.  It is not a “one pill fixes all” situation.  So, you need someone who will listen to you, spend the needed time to help you, and offers recommendations for improvement that are tailored to YOU. 

I would be glad to help you in this journey by helping you find the right connections to a better you.

3 natural remedies for acid reflux 

1. Anise, Peppermint, and Lavender tea – This tea does wonders for both acid reflux and heartburn because it helps neutralize the acid in your stomach. It is easy to make and all you have to do is.

Boil- 2 ½ cup distilled water 
Pour boiling water over a teaspoon of the herbal mixture 
Let the tea sit for 3- 5 minutes 
Strain the tea and add a little bit of honey if you like

Drink 8 ounces in the morning and 8 more ounces in the evening to get the full effect. Here’s a little info behind the ingredients of this tea.

Anise or Aniseed – This herb has many benefits including maintaining a healthy digestive system. The type you need to use is called green anise, sweet anise, or European anise. Start anise and caraway anise should not be used in this instance.

Peppermint – This herb also helps calm the stomach and heartburn as it is beneficial for healthy digestion and helps calm and sooth such conditions as distension, cramps, ulcers, and gas.

Lavender – Not only does it smell good it is also an excellent stomach aid in that it is useful for reducing stomach acid secretions.

2. Pineapples – This tropical fruit is a store house of beneficial enzymes that includes bromelain. This enzyme helps break down proteins during the digestive process which limits acid production. If pineapples aren’t your thing then consider buying bromelain in supplement form. 200-500mg per meal should work for just about everyone.

3. Chicory Root – Chicory belongs to a family of bitter herbs that includes escarole and endive. You can make a simple tea by boiling 1 ½ cups of the root for 5 to 10 minutes. Let it cool to room temperature and then drink it. It works well to sooth acid reflux and heartburn.

These three natural remedies reflux are but a few of the natural treatments for acid reflux disease. Using them will surely give you the relief you seek but to truly treat this condition you need to do as much research into it’s causes, symptoms, and cures to truly control it.
