One of the best drinks to alleviate acid reflux is water.
A glass of slightly cold water can immediately increase gastric pH countering and calming the effect of highly a acidic gut. I highly recommend it to most people with chronic or sudden acid reflux attack.
Having a sudden aggravation of your reflux condition can be relieved almost immediately by using over-the-counter (OTC) drugs.
However, many OTC’s that may aid digestion or help reduce acidity have several potential problems. OTC’s can actually aggravate your condition in the long run by irritating your stomach or esophagus lining.
More health practitioners have become conscious of the fact that activated charcoal is the best single supplement for enhancing detoxification and thus preventing cellular damage, diverse diseases, allergic like reactions,
compromised immunity and premature aging.
The first thing that happens when you go to a doctor complaining of acid reflux or heartburn is that they give you samples of expensive prescription drugs and antacids.
This is the standard marketing practices of the medical and pharmaceutical industry.
