Natural Treatments for Acid Reflux

Acid reflux can cause chest pain, heart burn after eating, and difficulty swallowing. Acid reflux occurs when stomach acid enters your esophagus. Your diaphragm would normally prevent stomach acid from entering your esophagus, so when your lower esophageal sphincter and the upper part of your stomach move above the diaphragm, stomach acid will reach your esophagus. With the combination of western medicine and natural remedies, acid reflux can be relieved, managed, and vanquished. Our goal is to make our Connecticut patients healthier and happier. 


If you suffer from acid reflux, rest assured you are not alone since one in nearly every five people suffer from acid reflux. If you are one of the many people suffering from this disease, there are truly a number of holistic approaches you can take to help prevent it. Many sufferers have come to rely upon the specialists here at Sophia Natural Health Center to learn more about the causes of acid reflux and the many natural treatments available.

Dietary Therapy – Avoid Trigger Foods and Practice Mindful Eating

There are many foods and drinks that can trigger the symptoms of acid reflux with those common culprits listed above.  Avoiding these trigger foods can alleviate the signs and symptoms of acid reflux.

Here at Sophia we work with our patients to customize a diet plan specific to their needs. In addition, we help patients develop a proper diet and to practice mindful eating.  We encourage our patients to maintain a healthy weight to help reduce the symptoms of acid reflux and to eat mindfully.  When you overeat or eat too quickly, you can cause acid reflux.  However, when practice mindful eating you are able to slow down the pace at which you eat and give attention to your body so as to identify signs that you are full.  Chewing your food slowly and eating smaller portions are very effective mindful eating habits.
