11. Sip on Lemon Water

Lemon in small amounts and mixed with water neutralizes acids in the stomach and is effective against H.pylori bacteria, sometimes a factor with GERD.

To use lemon water for acid reflux:


Start by mixing one tablespoon of fresh lemon juice with eight ounces of water. Then drink it about 20 minutes before a meal. This will help prevent symptoms that might be triggered by food.

12. Baking Soda For Heartburn

Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) neutralizes stomach acid, providing fast heartburn relief.

To use, mix ½-1 teaspoon of baking soda in 1 cup of lukewarm water (not cold) until dissolved and drink after eating a meal to prevent acid reflux. You may repeat every 2 hours, if necessary.

If you have hypertension, ask your healthcare professional before using baking soda as a regular heartburn remedy.
