Its very tempting to ignore the fact you have acid reflux when you have medication in your pocket. You can be sat in the restaurant looking at the menu thinking "to hell with it, the pain will soon be gone once I pop a tablet. The trouble with that is that after a while you are relying on those tablets and many of them can bring their own health problems and also as your condition worsens the drugs effectiveness will be less as your body becomes immune to the chemicals. Much better is to use natural remedies for acid reflux and we have put a few together here for you.

Before taking any of these or any other supplements, be sure to read the directions carefully, and to follow the dosages completely. You should also talk to your doctor if you are considering taking an herbal acid reflux remedy (especially if you are on other medications) and he will advice how much of the supplement you should take each day.

One of the natural remedies for acid reflux you'll want to take is burdock. This herb is a great body healer and helps to clean out the liver and kidneys during the digestion process. Burdock can help to clear up your reflux symptoms if you take it once or twice a day at meal times. You may also want to try celery seed as this supplement is great for helping to clean out the intestines. This means your body will be able to rid itself of toxins much quicker. Eating ray celery between meals will also aid in this process.

Introducing saffron into your cooking will help relieve your acid reflux. It can be used as a seasoning for meats, vegetables or rice but if you don't like the taste simply take it as supplement. If you do enjoy the taste try mixing it with your favorite sea food dishes. Fish are rich in Omega-3 fats and these also help with your symptoms. Omega-3 improves your digestive system and the quicker your digestive system works, the less acid reflux you get! Again if fish isn't your thing simply get some fish oil supplements as increasing your intake of Omega-3 is one of the natural remedies for acid reflux that also has the added benefit of improving your heart and has even been shown to increase our capacity to remember, its the original brain food!

Another way to ease acid reflux symptoms is by taking a capsule of devil's claw with meals will also help you to feel better after eating, and will help you to resist the urge to lie down right after a meal. Devil's claw helps to ease the lining of the esophagus as well, and helps the food to settle in your stomach, so that it doesn't resurface in the esophagus as soon as you have eaten.

Other supplements you can consider are flax seed oil, cascara and borage oil, all of which will improve your digestive system. They also have the added bonus of being known for cleansing the bloodstream of impurities which increases the energy levels. Your body requires energy to digest your food but you might also want to use some of it up by taking a brisk walk after your evening meal to again aid the digestive system. The quicker your body deals with the food the less chance of acid reflux and you can do yourself a large favor by avoiding heavy meals such as traditional Italian meals and fatty foods such as fries and burgers. By taking a little care over your diet, understanding what causes an attack for you and what doesn't (everyone is different) and supplementing your diet with a few of the supplements already mentioned you should find what natural remedies for acid reflux best suit you.
