For me, homeopathic remedies make me a believer in natural treatments. I would prefer to grab a fruit or vegetable rather than a synthetic manufactured concoction with various side effects.

There is good news for all of us! Do you remember your mother ever saying eat your apple as, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away?” Well mother knew what she was talking about–research shows that apples can be used to treat symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), as apples help with indigestion. Curbing the painful acid back up into the esophagus from happening, will help the esophagus heal no matter what natural helpful food remedy you choose.

Organic sweet apples—eat an apple, and let the indigestion disappear.

Apple cider vinegar is another such known remedy for digestion troubles. However, for me, if my stomach were not feeling good already, why would I want to subject myself to apple cider vinegar when I could grab a sweet apple and enjoy it? Nonetheless, both options are natural remedies that are help for indigestion. As is applesauce—an easy to eat natural help for indigestion. Applesauce is also one of my favorite natural indigestion help remedies when my stomach just does not seem to be digesting properly.

Banana is another known non-acidic food that will help with indigestion. Simply slice and eat. I hope that before you know it, that the indigestion will be wiped away with this mellow yellow fruit, packed full of potassium.

Peppermint is another good belly soother and alleviates digestive discomfort. When my stomach is not up to par, I like to steep myself a cup of Organic Peppermint Tea for 10-15 min., especially after a heavy meal.  If the aromatic scent is not soothing enough, the peppermint will relax digestive discomfort and bring your acid indigestion back in check.

What is acid reflux?

Acid reflux is a condition that causes the stomach acid to back up into the esophagus.

Dr. Jamie Kaufman, author of the book Dropping Acid: The Reflux Diet Cookbook & Cure, has found that working with a person’s diet to eliminate acidic fruits (all citrus fruits that have a small amount of Vitamin C are acidic), sodas, canned and bottled foods received acid reflux relief.

  1. You are quite welcome…:-) I am still updating my blog. I am combining two blogs into this “one.” During this process you may receive notice of an unusual amount of blog postings. I have not figured out how to turn off everyone’s notices while I update. When you leave a message now does it let you click on receive a message if there is a reply? I don’t know if I have figured out how to fix that either. Sorry. There is a lot I know about computers, and then again…there is a lot I do not. LOL
