Recently, some friends asked me for home remedies for acid reflux, so it seemed like a great topic to add to the Home Remedies Collection. Whether you call it acid reflux, GERD, or gastroesophageal reflux disease, it doesn’t feel good. Symptoms include upset stomach, regurgitation, and the classic mid-chest burning sensation known as heartburn. Many folks resort to proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) such as esomeprazole (Nexium®), lansoprazole (Prevacid®), and omeprazole (Prilosec®). The thing is, long term use of PPIs has been linked to problems such as life-threatening diarrhea, respiratory illness and osteoporosis. (See “Do PPIs have long-term side effects?” for more information.) So what can you do to feel better?
