As the title suggests, in this article I will talk about the five things you must not do at all, that is, if you are really serious about curing your acid reflux problem.
Don't Eat Spicy Foods: While I don't mean to say that you need not eat bland and boring foods all your life, the less spicy your food is the fewer bouts of acid reflux you will suffer from. Now, you may be so used to eating spicy foods that you may not think that what you are eating is really spicy. So, carefully consider what your food is made of and what spices are being used to cook it. An even easier way to detect spicy food is: if any food makes you feel generally uncomfortable and bitter burps start coming out of your stomach soon after then something is really wrong with your food! When you are cooking your own food, it is best to use as little spices as possible.
Meat and Fish: Whoever said that one needs to follow a strict vegetarian diet in order to get rid of acid reflux issues is not telling you the truth. You can definitely have meat, only you cannot have all kinds of meat. You cannot have fatty meat, but you can definitely bite into lean meat, ground beef, chicken, steak, etc. The only condition is that you must never cook meat using a lot of greasy oil; for best results, meat should be consumed either in broiled or grilled form. The same rule goes for fishes too. Truth to be told, there are some really very nutritious fishes that you should add as part of your diet, and as long as you cook them properly, no harm can come upon you!

Do you suffer from acid reflux? I know, I know what you would ask me next: how would you know if you really have one? Well, that is not the hard part. If you feel a burning sensation in either your chest or throat, immediately followed by a bitter taste (kinda like bile) in your mouth, then you are indeed suffering from acid reflux.
Avoid Alcohol: Another big no-no is drinking alcohol. If you are suffering from nighttime acid reflux, let me ask you a question: do you drink alcohol with your dinner? If yes, then that is what is obviously causing this problem! While you may be otherwise fine with drinking less than four ounces of alcohol per day, continuing with your drinking habits makes no sense if you have already been diagnosed with acid reflux. After all, alcohol only increases the amount of acid in your stomach, just in case you didn't know.
Why are more and more people turning to natural remedies for acid reflux cure? The answer is simple. As more and more people are becoming aware of the side effects and other issues that come bundled with the usage of prescription drugs, they are realizing that natural remedies are their only remaining solution. Also, prescription drugs are mostly meant to be used for a short period of time after which a person is supposed to modify their diet and lifestyle which would itself take care of their stomach acid problems; their long term usage can definitely bring about negative changes in your system. On the other hand, there are many common herbs whose potent with regard to acid reflux has not yet been fully proven, but which pose no threats in the form of side effects either.

Herbs: A lot of people prefer herbs over any other kind of medications because herbs are the most natural form of treatment available for just about ANY kind of disease. The main advantage of these herbs is that they don't come with side effects (unlike the prescription medications). The disadvantage is that it can take time before you see any kind of solid results with them - good or bad. In other words, in order to know whether the herbal treatment you are using is really working or not, you will have to wait for at least a couple of months!
What is acid reflux? Technically, acid reflux occurs when the stomach ejects its contents back to our esophagus due to our lower esophageal sphincter not being closed properly. However, how would you know if you are suffering from acid reflux or not? Simple. If you are unable to sleep at night and always feel a burning sensation either in your throat or chest, then you, my friend, ARE suffering from acid reflux.

While acid reflux gets worse when one sleeps, it can also occur immediately after you had your meal. In this article I will tell you how to get rid of this acid reflux once and for all.
