Home Remedies For Gerd: Procedure, Recovery, Risk & Complication

What is the remedy about?

Severe or prolonged acid reflux is known as gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD). Characterized by heartburn or burning sensation around the lower chest area, acid reflux causes the moving up of stomach acids that irritate the esophagus, a long tube interconnecting the throat and the stomach. GERD may give rise to symptoms like a sore throat, dry cough, nausea and chest pain. If left untreated for a long time GERD may cause serious complications like Barrett’s esophagus and esophageal cancer. There are a wide array of home remedies that you may apply to get relief. One of the most effective home remedies is to drink apple cider vinegar mixed with water. Add one to two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in a cup of warm water and drink it twenty to thirty minutes before having a meal. You need to continue this on a regular basis for at least a few months. Baking soda is another popular home remedy for GERD. Add half to one teaspoon of baking soda to a cup of water and drink it for instant relief. You may also drink aloe vera juice, as it is known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties. Aloe vera controls inflammation in the stomach and esophagus to bring relief. Drink one-quarter cup of aloe vera juice about twenty minutes before having a meal. Cumin seeds also help in dealing with acid reflux by stimulating digestion and reducing acidity issues. Add one teaspoon of cumin seeds in a cup and boil it for some time. Then let it steep for five minutes and strain it. Drink this concoction in the mornings after meals till you notice improvements. Avoid heavy meals and eating fruits like an apple after meals can prevent the onset of acid reflux. While sleeping, elevate the head of your bed by up to four to six inches and try to sleep on the left side.

Are there any side effects?

Home remedies are usually considered as safe. However, it would be wrong to consider that home remedies are free from side-effects. They may be less harmful than the chemical derivatives but you may face some side effects if you don’t use them properly or the ingredients are impure. For centuries home remedies have been utilized to give a boost to the immune system, recover wounds, and even cure numerous painful conditions. Many have found that these natural ingredients enhance the general well-being all in all. A few herbs or natural substances could bring about poisoning or have some contraindication with physician endorsed drugs, in these cases the side effects could be hazardous. Therefore you must be aware and do proper research about the ingredients before applying any remedies. Ingredients like baking soda should not be taken for a prolonged period. Those with high blood pressure should avoid it as it contains sodium. You should avoid having aloe vera in excess as it may have a laxative effect. Always make sure that none of your ingredients are old, or the containers are unclean. Dirty spoons or hands are home to germs, and you must wash them well before handling the ingredients. The best way to avoid side effects is to start slow. First, take a small dose then gradually increase the dosage slowly and check whether the remedy suits your body. Home remedies are natural and usually take a longer time to heal GERD. Take a moderate dose and do not attempt more than one remedy at a time. If you want to go all natural, then it is essential for you to ensure that you know precisely what you are up against.

What are the post-remedy guidelines?

GERD is chronic digestive disease health problem, almost fifteen percent western population has suffered from GERD on some occasion. Even after the cure, you need to be careful and maintain a healthy diet so that acid reflux doesn't return. There are a few things you may try to avoid having acid reflux again. You may try a losing weight, as obesity is the leading cause of GERD. Avoid fatty foods, spicy foods and acidic foods like tomatoes and citrus along with chocolate, onions, etc. Also stay away from caffeinated beverages like coffee etc. and carbonated drinks.

How long does it take to recover?

That is no certain time limit. It relies on the intensity of your problem and whether your symptoms are mild, moderate or severe. Usually, complete recovery takes a few months. If you notice improvements after using the remedy that means your cure is working. Home remedies usually take more time than prescription medicines, so be patient and continue using it till the problem disappears. It normally takes six to twelve weeks, sometimes even longer for complete recovery using prescription medicine. But natural ingredients are considered safer and inexpensive derivatives compared to chemical medications and surgeries.

Are the results of the remedy permanent?

Home remedies may reduce your acid reflux by substantial level but might not be permanent if you are not mindful of your habits. It may return at any point in time. Be that as it may, but you shouldn’t stop caring about your health and body. Maintain a healthy lifestyle and always avoid having foods that are known to cause GERD. Prefer smaller meals, cut back on alcohol and don’t lie down just after having a meal. Wear loose-fitting clothes that do not constrict your stomach.

Is there any training or experts required?

If your acid reflux symptoms aren’t severe, then you do not require a visit to a doctor or specialist. Home remedies are enough to treat your acid reflux if you can follow the guidelines properly. But if your symptoms are severe and long-lasting then you must consult a doctor. GERD is treatable with home remedies. Applying natural remedies may be time-consuming but they are effective. Always have faith on home remedies as they are natural and natural things are preferable to use than prescription medicines or surgeries.

Acid Reflux or GERD

Acid Reflux or GERD
Acid Reflux or GERD

Acid Reflux or GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) is caused when the valve between the esophagus and stomach becomes weak. Normally, this valve opens to allow food in and then it shuts tightly. With GERD, the valve stays open, allowing stomach acids to flow back up into the esophagus, causing heartburn and many other symptoms. It leads to a condition in which the liquid content of the stomach regurgitates (backs up or refluxes) into the esophagus. If you have heartburn that occurs more than twice a week and/or does not get better with over-the-counter antacids, you may have GERD.

Consumption of pitta (fire) aggravating foods and foods of incompatible nature (virudh aahar) vitiates all the doshas, predominantly pitta dosha. Vitiated doshas produce heating toxins that are expelled upwards into the food pipe causing heartburn. Increased intake of tea or coffee, or oily, spicy, or fried foods aggravates pitta and leads to acidity. An aggressive nature and hyperactivity are also causal factors. Pitta is aggravated by late night work schedules, irregular eating patterns, and/or drinking alcoholic and carbonated beverages. Increased intake of painkillers and antibiotics also cause acidity and heartburn.

Ayurvedic View

According to Ayurveda, Acid Reflux is a result of aggravation of pitta Dosha. Pitta is an Ayurvedic humor that symbolizes heat or fire. It is hot, sharp, intense, acidic and pungent in nature and is located in the stomach. Aggravated pitta leads to increase of acidic content in stomach fluids. Actually, the reflux of the stomach's liquid contents into the esophagus occurs in most normal individuals. In such patients, refluxed liquid contains acid more often due to aggravated pitta, which leads to acid reflux.
Diet & Lifestyle Advice

Avoid tea, coffee, and carbonated or alcoholic beverages.

Avoid processed and fermented foods.

Avoid using garlic, ginger, onions, tomatoes, and vinegar in cooking.

Also avoid rich gravies, sour, salty, and spicy foods.

Curd should be strictly avoided.

Take meals in a relaxed atmosphere at regular intervals.

Practice Yoga and Pranayama such as Vajrasana, Bhujangasana, Salabhasana, Bhastrika Pranayama, Shitali Pranayama and Shitkari Pranayama.

Home Remedies

Make a powdered mixture of equal parts of rock candy (mishri), fennel, and green cardamom. Whenever you experience heartburn, mix 1 teaspoon of the mixture in a glass of cold milk and drink.

Mix together equal parts of powdered fennel, licorice root, basil leaves, and coriander seeds. Have ½ teaspoon of this mixture with ½ teaspoon of powdered rock candy (mishri) 15 minutes before lunch and dinner.

Home Remedies for Indigestion
Indigestion, also known by the medical term dyspepsia, is due to a problem in the secretion of digestive juices in the stomach. Usually indigestion occurs after eating spicy or fatty foods or overeating.

It can also be triggered or made worse due to gastroesophageal reflux disease (gerd), irritable bowel syndrome, stress or anxiety, obesity, ulcers, stomach infection, thyroid disease, smoking and certain medications.

Some symptoms of indigestion are bloating, gas, growling stomach, abdominal pain, burning sensation in the upper abdomen, acidic taste and vomiting.

You can easily get relief from indigestion symptoms using ingredients from your pantry. For instance, sipping a little water at the first sign of indigestion can give you some relief as it helps increase the gastric ph.

Home remedies

Anything that is easily available in or around your home, and has a medicinal use, may be used as a home remedy. Most ayurvedic home remedies are a blend of commonly used herbs and spices to cure common symptoms or prevent any ailment.

Substances such as clove, cinnamon, black pepper, cumin, fennel, rock salt, turmeric, coriander, ginger, honey, licorice, garlic, onion, basil and mint are generally regarded as effective home remedies. Ayurveda also prescribes some exercises, massaging techniques, aromas and cleansing therapies as natural home remedies.

Simple home remedies can be very effective in relieving symptoms, and preventing further development of a disorder. However, once a disease has fully manifested and reached the final stage of development, specific treatments are required. Home remedies may also support treatments prescribed by a physician. In some cases, even a proper diet can be a home remedy as it reduces the severity of symptoms experienced and avoids unintended aggravation of the condition.

Top Home Remedies to get rid of Dandruff
Looking over your shoulder while driving is a healthy habit. But looking over your shoulder to check for dandruff could be quite embarrassing, especially for women.

Dandruff is a common scalp condition that is usually chronic but not contagious (unless caused by infection). Formation of dry, white flakes of dead skin on hair and scalp is dandruff. It may also be accompanied by itching and burning sensation.

Those with oily skin are more prone to this problem because it is often a mild form of seborrheic dermatitis.

Dandruff is caused by:

- cold, dry weather
- infrequent shampooing
- overgrowth of yeast-like fungus (malassezia)
- sensitivity to hair products
- conditions like eczema and psoriasis
- hormonal changes
- stress
- a diet lacking in zinc and b vitamins

Try these home remedies to get rid of dandruff:

Home remedy 1
- take a handful of neem leaves.
- boil them in 4 cups of water.
- cool and strain this solution.
- rinse your hair with this decoction 2-3 times a week.

Home remedy 2
- take some coconut oil.
- add half the amount of lemon juice in it.
- mix them thoroughly.
- apply this mixture to the roots of your hair and massage for a few minutes.
- leave on for about 20 minutes before rinsing it off.

Home remedy 3
- take 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar.
- add an equal amount of water.
- add 15-20 drops of tea tree oil.
- mix the ingredients well.
- massage your scalp with the mixture.
- rinse after a few minutes.
- follow this remedy 2-3 times a week.

Now you can confidently say" look, no dandruff anymore"

Homeopathy Constitutional Remedies
Know how Homeopathy constitutional remedies can cure Chronic cases

Hi, I m Dr. Monty Talwar, practicing in Gurgaon, I have an experience of about 20 years in homeopathy, I practice classical homeopathy wherein we take into account the patient s nature and temperament especially in chronic cases. The constitutional cases are very deep-acting and they will stimulate the immune system of the patient. Thereby, the patient s body fights on its own, so we are not providing a continuous stimulus or a medicine from outside as the body takes charge of itself.

The example in thyroid cases, especially in hypothyroidism when we give the constitutional medicine it stimulates the thyroid gland so that it starts secreting the hormone on its own. As a result, the patient can be off the thyroid medicine. Similarly, in frequent colds and coughs in children where they fall sick too often, so these medicines build up the immunity of the child, so that they do not fall sick that often. Because of this individualistic approach, homeopathy is considered to be a holistic science.

If you have any queries or require a consultation with me you can consult me on Lybrate. Thank You.
