A: Keeping them elevated for 20 mintues after they eat might help. Gripe water can be given, you could also try Mylicon. Though those two are really used to help with gas. Also if you are bottle feeding changing the bottles might help. Also when they sleep keep their head a bit eleveated we did this with a pillow under our sons matress.
My son also has Reflux. Nothing worked for him so they had to put him on Zantac twice a day and in between Mylanta to help with it.
Q: What is an effective home remedy for Acid Reflux?
What is an effective home remedy for Acid Reflux? Something that doesn’t involve having to drive down to town, as it’s 4am.
A: Drinking milk can help sometimes. Also, stay away from spicy foods, alcohol or carbonated beverages. Don’t lie down either. Stay sitting up and try to wear loose-fitting clothes. If you want to take an at home painkiller, try something with acetaminophen instead of aspirin or ibuprofen. Those can make it worse. Hope this helps! Try not to eat too much before bedtime, too.
Q: is acid Reflux in children causes nausia early in the morning on a daily basis?
my 4 years daughter has been throwing up only when she wakes up in the morning before even having her breakfast for two months now . Doctors reccomend that she has acid reflux for which she is taking medication now ….but still no result so far ..i wonder if the acid reflux in children or the constipation can cause this nausia early in the morning for that long period ?
medicine are taken now are pepcid for acid reflux and miralax for constipation .
A: That can definitely be the result of acid reflux and it can persist especially if she is not on the correct medication specifically for her. I would recommend taking her to a pediatric gastro specialist significant reflux can cause serious issues later on if left untreated. Hope this helps I have alot of experience with patients with acid reflux not as much in pediatrics but we have referred children to specialists for similar cases. Good Luck.
Q: How to prevent the bad breath from acid reflux and keep breath fresh all day and night?
There is no medicine can keep breath fresh. I was trying to find the solution how to keep breath fresh all day and night. I notice the acid reflux causes bad breath. How to prevent this and keep breath fresh all day and night?
A: I am not sure that there is necessarily any “cure” for this. I would say however that drinking a lot of water would at least greatly diminish it.
Q: What Effect Does Stress Have On Acid Reflux?
I’ve been under tremendous stress lately and my acid reflux has gone out of control. Not getting much sleep either, some nights none. Is there a connection between reflux and stress/worry/fatigue?
A: How long have you had acid reflux? Any and all of the reasons you give are all causes in and by themselves let alone in combination. There needs to be something you can do to release this pressure. What these things do are create a very high temperature cooker in the stomach area and turn it up even higher. You need to find a group activity in the neighborhood. Maybe a dancing or whatever type of thing you like. Just get up and move, leaving the obstacle causing these feelings behind until you can learn to control them. Sleeping is one of the most important things the body needs too. Your brain needs to rest to get ready to help lead the body for another day. Please try to look up some of the “natural ways” that you can do to get your body to sleep at night. This info is but a search away on your computer. Using what life has to offer us instead of any chemical or artificial ways are always best and you’ll see you only have to look around the house for most ingredients. Good luck and God Bless
Q: How can i get rid of acid reflux?
I get heart burn every once in a while, and im assuming its from eating spicy foods i take a tums to take care of that but i have what i think is acid reflux like on a daily basis… i feel my stomach acid come up and it burns the heck out f my throat. I drink water or tea to maybe make my throat feel better but it doesnt.. what can i do?
A: I am not a doctor, so either way you will want to talk to them, but this is what I have to say as a long time sufferer of Acid Reflux (G.E.R.D.)!
Three part answer information, what not to do, and what to do!
I have a very severe case of Acid Reflux (G.E.R.D.). I have had to go to the hospital for some of the heartburn that I have had because the pain can become overwhelming or your breathing can be effected. It can be caused by Smoking, Drinking Beverages with caffeine (My case), Drinking Beverages with Alcohol, or can be Hereditary
The good thing about G.E.R.D. is that it can be a temporary thing and can be cured. It is never a permit thing even if you end up with it for the rest of your life it has the ability to be cured.
G.E.R.D. is caused by too much acid being created in your stomach. This can lead to or cause ulcers, esophagus damage, heartburn and/or damage in the mouth.
WHAT NOT TO DO!!!!!!!!
In most cases, stress is a factor to the reflux if you watch what you eat and reduce some of the stress it will help. If you watch what you eat for about a week you should find relief, if you do not then that is when you definitely what to listen to the doctor. Things to watch for are as follows:
Foods That Contain Grease
Chocolate (including any Coco)
Tomato Based Products
WHAT TO DO!!!!
The two foods that I recommend is Black strap Molasses and Raw honey. The apple is better for night time reflux while these will work for just about all of it. What you will do is take about a tsp. of whatever one you chose. Molasses being the better because of strength and nutrition, but must be use to the taste. What the substance will do is stick to the sides of the esophagus and do two things, one is heal and the other is protect.
On the healing end, both substances have a healing property in them, and as they sit on the walls of the esophagus they will heal it. This is also helpful if you have a sore throat in the morning from refluxing.
On the protection end, both substances are high in sugar and when acid that is refluxed comes up to that the sugar will neutralize it and it will not longer be a problem at that point.
I would also look to putting Cinnamon and Ginger in you diet, they have been know to help with digestion and will help you reduce the amount of acid needed to brake down food, therefore causing you to reflux less.
Q: How do I know if my baby has Acid Reflux?
She spits up infrequently, but it is usually thick and slightly chunky. She will often pull off the breast while feeding and cry, and this makes her feedings irregular and unsatisfying for her. Out of the blue she wil start to gag like she has something in her throat. Also sometimes she will start moving her mouth like she is tasting something. How do I know if she has Acid Reflux?
A: I would take her to the doctor. Some of that sounds like the description my daughter’s ped. gave me. The pulling off the breast and making a face like she’s tasting something can also come from the taste of something you’ve ate.
Q: What are the best and worst foods for acid reflux?
About a month ago I went to the dentist and they notice from my back teeth that I could have acid reflux. I have been noticing symptoms more this month. When I had a root beer float with a cheeseburger and fries at the mall, I felt like throwing up the rest of the day. But I didn’t. And last week I had McDonalds and didn’t feel so hot. I am trying to cut soda out of my diet. What are some other foods I should cut? Should I see a Doctor too?
A: A doctor is likely to ask you about your symptoms and direct you to try the various OTC remedies before s/he prescribes anything, so you can probably skip or at least delay that first visit.
Things which can make it worse include fried foods (all types), fatty foods (all types, including all beef), mint, cinnamon, raw onion, citrus (including tomato and tomato products), coffee, tea, wine, beer, and hard liquor. (Oh, great, is there anything left you can actually eat?) Being overweight also contributes. Stopping short of eating until you’re really full helps.
A pharmacist can direct you to products which prevent symptoms and those which treat symptoms after you already have them.
Q: How can I help my acid reflux ?
I am a teen who suffers from acid reflux. I am not over weight, and I usually eat healthy. I also exercise 5 times a week & drink plenty of water. I had acid reflux as a baby, and have started having it as a teen. Before going on medication, my doctor says I should try natural ways, to avoid those nasty medications. I really dont want to go on them! Any suggestions on how I can naturally cure my acid reflux?
A: Has your Doc investigated you for H.pylori infection?? If positive, then eradication of the bug will often cause a decrease in GERD symptoms.
Other than that, avoid large meals, dont smoke, limit alcohol intake, dont exercise straight after meals, drink peppermint tea and dont drink lots of coffee!!
Q: If acid reflux may be caused by too little stomach acid, how come acid suppressors like Nexium work?
It’s been said that Apple Cider Vinegar can help with acid reflux because the stomach is actually producing too little acid. If this is the case, how come Nexium and other similar acid suppressants work? Wouldn’t they make the situation worse?
Also, can lemon juice be used in place of ACV? I cannot tolerate the stuff! Any idea?
A: I always wondered that myself. Somebody is lying
Q: What is the best way to naturally cure heartburn (acid reflux)?
I am beginning to think that I have acid reflux disease. I have been experiencing some severe heartburn of late and would like to find a solution. Preferably natural cures for heartburn or heartburn home remedies that work. I prefer the home remedy approach as it usually is safer and less expensive. Looking forward to your help.
A: I actually had some very severe heartburn a few months back. I tried everything, even most of the heartburn home remedies listed above. Cinnamon and water did not work. Baking soda didnt work. I even tried the can of beer, which made my heartburn even worse. I actually thought I was doomed and destined to never cure heartburn and live with it forever. My doctor had even told me that acid reflux is a lifetime condition and that there was no cure. I randomly came across and ad one day while trying to find some acid reflux home remedies online and came across this book, Heartburn No More. This book took the holistic approach and sounded very appealing. I had nothing to lose so I bought the book and followed the program to the tee. I was really blown away by the fact that in approx 20 days since I started applying the dietary and cleansing principals outlined in the book, my acid reflux was completely cured. The burning sensation, the chest pain, the bloating and the constant burping have completely disappeared. It really feels like magic. Im telling you, try Heartburn No More, you wont be disappointed.
Q: What foods are okay to eat if you have acid reflux?
I think i have acid reflux bc after i eat greasy and fatty foods it feels like my throat is burning and i always wake up inthe middle of the night with a burning chest and stomach. is this really acid reflux? what food is okay to eat?
A: If you think you have Acid Reflux please see DR . as this is a danger’s situation ,
Under normal conditions, when you eat and drink, the muscle at the bottom of your esophagus closes off so food and liquids will remain in your stomach. This muscle is the lower esophageal sphincter (LES).
However, GERD occurs chiefly because of the following three reasons: The esophagus’s normal defenses are overwhelmed by the acid content of the stomach, the contents of the stomach are too acidic, or the food is not cleared from the esophagus fast enough.
When “refluxed” stomach acid touches the lining of the esophagus, it causes a burning sensation in the chest or throat called heartburn. The fluid may even reach the back of the mouth, and this is called acid indigestion. Occasional heartburn is common but does not necessarily mean one has GERD. Heartburn that occurs more than twice a week may be considered GERD, and it can eventually lead to more serious health problems.
Other symptoms can include:
Pain in the chest
Hoarseness in the morning
May feel like food is stuck in the throat
Persistent dry cough
If you have been diagnosed with acid reflux disease (GERD), you’ll want to learn how to control the symptoms. The acid reflux disease will still be there, but you can alleviate and in many cases, prevent the symptoms.
The following tips can help you live with your acid reflux disease.
Eat 6 small meals instead of 3 big meals.
This keeps your stomach from getting too full. This will also reduce gastric pressure. Another tip is to eat slowly.
Don’t eat or drink anything for at least 2 hours before going to bed.
If you take naps, try sleeping in a chair. Lying down with a full stomach can cause stomach contents to press harder against the lower sphincter muscle, increasing the chances of refluxed food.
Avoid foods that are known to trigger your heartburn.
There are several foods and beverages that can trigger your heartburn, either by increasing acid production and gastric pressure or by loosening the lower sphincter muscle.
Q: Is it possible to cure acid reflux without meds?
I have SILENT REFLUX meaning it goes into my throat. But you can’t feel it, and it’s worse than acid reflux(GERD) But i really don’t want to take medicine, is it true you can get rid of it by changing diets, and how you live rather than meds?
A: The main reason for any type of acid reflux is lack of digestive enzymes and low stomach acid. An old remedy still used to help with digestion is apple cider vinegar. Ginger is also another remedy to increase digestion. Heat destroys enzymes so eating a diet higher in raw foods (eg fruits, nuts) is benefical. Chewing more thoroughly is another way to break down food to help with the digestive process. Also, you can increase digestive enzymes in the diet with digestive enzyme supplements. They are made from plants and there are no side effects. These links go into further detail:
Q: Do I have acid reflux or is there something wrong with my heart?
For three months, I have been very burpy and feel like I have to burp. Suddenly the last week, I got very sharp chest pains. I have a little heartburn, but mostly pains in the heart area. Do I have something wrong with my heart or is it acid reflux? My local doctor thinks it is acid reflux, but I want to make sure.
A: Looking at the data provided by you, there seems to be no features suggestive of heart disease. If at all, it is Gastro-esophageal Reflux Disease. If go through the list of symptoms of acid reflux, that might convince you:
Some symptoms of acid reflux include:
* Heartburn — a burning pain or discomfort that may move from your stomach to your abdomen or chest, or even up into your throat
* Regurgitation — a sour or bitter-tasting acid backing up into your throat or mouth
* Hiccups that don’t let up
* Weight loss for no known reason
The Acid Reflux is caused by:
* Eating large meals or lying down right after a meal
* Being overweight or obese
* Eating a heavy meal and lying on your back or bending over at the waist
* Snacking close to bedtime
* Eating certain acid reflux foods, such as citrus, tomato, chocolate, mint, garlic, onions, spicy or fatty foods
* Drinking certain beverages, such as alcohol, carbonated drinks, coffee, or tea
* Taking aspirin, ibuprofen, certain muscle relaxers, or blood pressure medications
Avoid these. You will be fine.
Q: does acid reflux subside when you start them on solids?
My son has been on the similac sensative rice added formula, and we recently switched him back over to regular bc the dr said it didnt make much of a difference anyway. I was wondering when i start to give him cereal and other solids will this help his acid reflux?
A: its suppose to subside after 6 months…not the case for my lil one, it has “calmed” down a little bit, but much like the other answer, where ever she goes on the floor there is a circle of puke on the floor trailing behind her lol. She was told to put cereal in bottle, givien Zantac, nothing worked. So has been off the cereal in bottle since 2 months and off the Zantac since 4.5 months, because it was just pointless, and now that she is over 6 months the doc doesnt want her on zantac anymore anyway, sorry there isnt much you can do, but as long as baby is gaining weight, then hes just going to be a “happy spitter”
