How To Stop Acid Reflux | How To Treat Acid Reflux (2018)


Heartburn a symptom of Acid reflux. This video is about treatment, causes, diet & foods to avoid to naturally stop acid reflux.

Heartburn is a burning feeling in the chest caused by stomach acid travelling up towards the throat (acid reflux). If it keeps happening, it’s called gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD).

Acid reflux is very common in fact 1 in 10 people get acid reflux almost every day! In this weeks video I’m going to give you some great tips that should really help.

This video was sponsored by Dr Fox (Online Doctor & Pharmacy):

• Heartburn – a burning sensation in the middle of your chest
an unpleasant sour taste in your mouth, caused by stomach acid
You may also have:
• Cough or hiccups that keep coming back
• Hoarse voice
• Bad breath
• Wind, Bloating and feeling sick
• Your symptoms will probably be worse after eating, when lying down and when bending over.

• Eat smaller, more frequent meals
• Raise one end of your bed 10 to 20cm by putting something under your bed or mattress – make it so your chest and head are above the level of your waist, so stomach acid doesn't travel up towards your throat
• Try to lose weight if you're overweight
• Try to find ways to relax
• If you are a smoker stop smoking
• Some foods and drinks may make reflux worse in some people, here is a link to a great acid reflux diet sheet which I mentioned in the video:
• Some medicines may make symptoms worse. They may irritate the oesophagus or relax the sphincter muscle and make acid reflux more likely. Tell your pharmacist if you suspect that a medicine is causing the symptoms, or making symptoms worse.
• Posture. Lying down or bending forward a lot during the day encourages reflux. Sitting hunched or wearing tight belts may put extra pressure on the stomach, which may make any reflux worse.
• Bedtime. If symptoms recur most nights, the following may help:
Go to bed with an empty, dry stomach. To do this, don't eat in the last three hours before bedtime and don't drink in the last two hours before bedtime.

If lifestyle changes and pharmacy medicines aren't helping then please see your GP.

Any of the following red flags should prompt you to urgently see a GP:
• Have heartburn most days for 3 weeks or more
• Have other symptoms, like food getting stuck in your throat or difficulty swallowing
• Are frequently being sick
• Have unexplained weight loss
• Have black or tarry stools
• Have a gnawing, sharp or stabbing pain.
• Feel like you have a lump in your stomach
• Have bloody vomit or poo

I have tried my best to add as many red flag symptoms but incase I have missed anything please make sure to visit the following pages as well,

    1. I’m studying treating heartburn naturally and discovered a fantastic website at Fergs Treatment Crusher (google it if you are interested)

    2. If anyone is interested in treating heartburn at home the best success that ive had was by using the Fergs Treatment Crusher (just google it) – I found it the most incredible idea that I have ever tried.

    3. There are a few components to reducing heartburn at home . One resource I discovered that successfully combines these is the Fergs Treatment Crusher (check it out on google) definately the best plan that I’ve seen. look at the awesome info .

    4. @AbrahamThePharmacist yo man , could you help me.. I ate a biscuit few days back and I had this really sharp stabbing pain in my left chest which has now dulled after about approximately 4 days .. since then , I
      have been feeling rather off with me not being able to eat right and feeling nauseous

    5. @trollaccount I watched the sales video and had to switch it off. Especially when he said the pharmaceutical companies are trying to suppress it. I didn’t get to the part where they try to charge you an arm and a leg.

    1. me too. I also suffer it now. I don’t know to reduce that acid reflux . Does any body have the ideas? please help.

  1. I’m completely healthy, perfect weight, takes no medication, never had alcohol, never smoked and I still get heart burn almost everyday.

    1. @Bayo Mtholo years of this,have someone check your spine yo see if its out.I have a couch with 45° angles on the back,put a small pillow over the 45° find which way it’s out and bang it back in on the corner,you can feel it go in and you or someone else can recheck the alignment.or pay around 50.00 for a few minutes over and over to a chiropractor for 5 minutes of work?? If my spine is out I puke up my coffee in the morning,in no issue.if it’s out to the couch back in the morning.some can,some cant,get it in most of the time and stomach feels better in about 1/2 hour.

    2. I found something that will help you. I also have had heartburn for yrs every day. When you’re done eating leave a little room for a minimum of 2 tablespoons of dehydrated mashed potatoes cooked with hot water as usual. It physically acts as a plug and you can even lay down after eating. I discovered the method I just shared with you on unintentionally. I would have loved it if someone had told me yrs ago. Let me know if you get my message. I would really like to help others that have actual acid burning the esophagus.

  4. I watched the whole video expecting to find out how to stop heartburn, instead you show me how heartburns occurred and recommends to go see GP. No one needs to know this.

    1. This was great, thanks, I been tryin to find out about “what is heartburn symptoms” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about – Ziyoah Ziyuke Solution – (do a search on google ) ? It is a great one of a kind guide for getting rid of acid reflux minus the hard work. Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my mate got great success with it.

    2. That is because you can’t stop heartburn without meds. So the only solution is go to the pharmacists or doctors. You can only wait for it to subside and prevent it from happening.

    1. @jhonlord parale your not going to die. A good start would be to see your Dr if you haven’t already
      It may take some time to figure out what works best for you… don’t get discouraged. I can only tell you what I’ve done and works for me it may not work for you at all…are you over weight are there any good that makes things worse or better ?

    2. @Husqman I’m not overweight.But why I’m experiencing this feeling by which It seems like I have an asthma it feels like I can’t breath properly and easily get tired.I don’t have asthma before is it also because of this Acid Reflux?I’m really scared Im only 20 years old.

    3. @jhonlord parale yeah when reflux occurres the mussels around the esofagis can contact making the chest to feel tight

    1. Haven’t tried Kefir bc I’ve only recently heard about it but I heard that it will cure your Acid Reflux.

      Posted this 7 months ago, I’m pretty fine now. What I did was I lessened my coffee intake.
      Took me a while for my stomach to calm down tho. Hope this helps!

  5. I have acid reflux it’s annoying 😭😡🥺
    I keep feeling sick and stuff but I know I won’t be sick. Like if u hope I get better (:

    1. My doctor discovered that I have a major inflammation in my esophagus and chronic acid reflux. Luckily, I`d been helped by this heartburn treatment My heartburn and constant taste of acid in my mouth have all disappeared in less than Two weeks and I lost 13 pounds.

    2. I have been struggling with painful symptoms of acid reflux that doctors found difficult to diagnose. I have applied this heartburn treatment with great hopes and it helped me in ways that I still can`t comprehend. I didn`t experience any symptoms of acid reflux anymore. It is like I`ve never suffered with heartburn.

    1. @Dyandra Gilbert I’ve started taking a probiotic a couple of months ago seems to help I just get the cheep ones from Walmart….equate gummies

    2. @Dyandra Gilbert no problem glad to help let me know if you have any other questions don’t get discouraged it may take a little time to figure it all out

    1. Please speak with your doctor and ask them to refer you for a gastroscopy endoscopy procedure to rule out esophageal strictures, Barrett’s Esophagus, hiatal hernia, gastric/ esophageal cancer etc. This is important especially if you’re always getting food stuck in your throat.

    2. @ZaynahOh cancer? really? i feel the same when i eat i start coughing very hard then i continously burp which makes it fine sometimes coughing leads to vomiting but once i burp everything is fine..that is the only thing i suffer from nothing else no heart burn no stomach ache nothing. you have really got me worried by mentioning cancer..

    3. This heartburn treatment helps me tremendously with other digestive troubles I have had as well and all naturally without the use of traditional medications. When you are presently experiencing digestive ailments and chronic heartburn, you need to try this treatment as well.

    1. Same dillemma here. A lot of people in the Philippines also suffer from acid reflux including me. Which we thought is corona.

    2. @Pauline Kilori I only had palpitations once at night. I think it was anxiety for me along with taking claritin-D at night which can cause nervousness and make things worse. I would make sure to avoid mediciations that can cause this, and try to relax if you have anxiety. Drink some chamomile tea, and talk to your doctor if you think the issue is deeper!

  6. Man the most painful symptom for is like you wanna eat bc you’re hungry but you can’t because you feel very full but you’re hungry? Anyone? Damn it this is the worst 😫

    1. Le Clout yes and I feel like I always going to vomit 🤢 I’ve been feeling this for the last 2 weeks now 😷

    2. Grit & Grind damn bro I was feeling like that but drinking ginger tea almost every night 1 hour before going to sleep

  7. Hey whoever is reading this, having heartburn? Take it to Jesus he is the answer to everything trust me, tested and trusted. Amen😉

  8. For People Who Has Heartburn I Pray That It Will Go Away I Also Has Heartburn Just Give It To God Im 15 And Caught Heartburn By Eating Spicy Chicken Just Pray And U Will Be Fine I Believe Love Y’all And Stay Strong 🙏🙏
