What people may not know is that regular use od Antacid disturbs chemical Balance of the Body and it is dangerous to fool around with the Chemical Balance.
Some tips were published in the TIME.
Best natural Remedy is: Take Half Teaspoon Each of Cumin and Pepper( not pepper powder) and one Teaspoon of Salt( Crystals).
Take all the three together and if needed take a glass of water after chewing the mixture.
The relief is instantaneous.
Small, frequent meals
A very full stomach can cause the valve between your stomach and esophagus (known as the lower esophageal sphincter, or LES) to relax, pushing stomach acids back up into the esophagus.
Eat several small meals throughout the day rather than the standard breakfast, lunch, and dinner. (Don’t make that last meal too late, though: Eating close to bedtime can trigger GERD symptoms as well.)
Be it chocolate or caffeine, certain foods and drinks are notorious for exacerbating GERD symptoms.
The list includes spicy foods, fatty red meat, French fries (and other fried foods), citrus fruit, raw onion, tomatoes, butter, oil, peppermint, chocolate, and caffeine.
You don’t have to doom yourself to a diet of bananas and boiled chicken, however. Visit our slideshow on heartburn-easing foods for some delicious GERD-friendly recipes.
Don’t drink alcohol
Alcohol is a bad idea for most people with GERD, especially if you drink too much, or on a regular basis.
Alcohol relaxes the lower esophageal sphincter, which lets stomach acid creep into the esophagus.
A 1999 study in the American Journal of Medicine found that the percentage of people reporting reflux symptoms increased with the number of drinks consumed weekly. Those who quaffed more than seven drinks per week were the most likely to have heartburn.
