What are some natural remedies to relieve gastric reflux?
Hello, my grandfather who is 64 years old has gastric reflux symptoms. He is complaining about a burning sensation in the chest which is mostly after eating something. I told him that we should visit a doctor but he denied it. I can’t bother him much so I am thinking about treating it in a natural way. Please suggest some natural remedies to relieve gastric reflux. Thank you.
@unisha Hello, I think you should consider a doctor. Here are some remedies that might help him:- Maintain a healthy weight
- Eat small- Eating smaller meals puts less pressure on the stomach, which can prevent the backflow of stomach acids. By eating smaller amounts of food more frequently, you can reduce heartburn and eat fewer calories overall.
- Try teas like chamomile
- Avoid tight clothing
Home remedies can help alleviate the occasional heartburn episode, as well as some cases of GERD. It’s important to know that home remedies alone may not work for acid reflux and GERD. Talk to a gastroenterologist about how some of these remedies can complement a medical treatment plan.
