Help, my throat is burning from acid reflux!
Two quick remedies to turn things around quick

Help, my throat is burning from acid reflux!

There is nothing worse than waking up in the morning after a night full of stomach acid having its way with your esophagus.

While sleeping on a flat bed and with a particularly bad night of Acid Reflux, you can wake up to extreme pain that feels like the worst sore throat you can imagine.

What you have is basically a burn. Just like a sun burn or from touching something extremely hot. However in this case it’s on the inside of your body.

Now if you had a sunburn what would you do? You would probably go to the drug store and buy some Aloe Vera Gel. The minute it hits your skin you begin to feel relief. Whatever is in that magic leaf is pretty amazing!

Interestingly enough, it works the same on the inside of the body. To relieve the above burning sensation, you need to reduce the inflammation from the burn. Aloe Vera Juice is your answer. You can order it here from Amazon. Or most health food stores and even some grocery stores will carry it.

Be careful and make sure you are buying “juice” not “gel”.

The juice itself in no way tastes good. It’s kind of bitter and has a funny smell. But just mix about 10% apple juice or any other non-acidic juice and its fairly tolerable.

Next, just sip. 3-4 ounces at a time. 2-3 times a day.

This is not meant to cure your Acid Reflux, but for most people it will offer relief.

Now if you have a burning esophagus and your Acid Reflux is still active, the quickest way to quiet down an upset stomach is with good old fashioned baking soda.

Yep, you can keep your fridge from smelling, wash your clothes with it, use it as an abrasive and amazingly enough you can quiet Acid Reflux in under 30 seconds! The best recommendation is to buy a box and just follow the instructions on the box. Just about every box of baking soda has directions for indigestion relief.

You basically take a quarter teaspoon and mix it in however much water you want until it’s dissolved. Then drink it all at once.

Couple minutes later, you will burp the most glorious burp you can ever remember. That means its working!

Aloe Vera Juice and Baking Soda are just two natural ways to help cope with the symptoms of Acid Reflux (GERD). It is also recommended that you sleep with your head raised if you suffer from Acid Reflux (GERD). Sleeping with your head raised, uses gravity to help keep the contents of your stomach from traveling up your esophagus. As with any home or over the counter remedies it is always recommended to check with your doctor before trying something new.
