Acid reflux is a common condition causing a burning pain, known as heartburn, in the chest. Acid reflux happens when some of the acids from the stomach flow up to the esophagus, into the gullet, which blocks the movement of food down from the mouth.

How to check Acid Reflux: Make Your Body Alkaline

Adapt to an alkaline lifestyle and reap the incremental benefits just by changing your diet and lifestyle. The alkaline diet neutralizes the acid reflux resulting in oxygenated blood which energizes the body and metabolism. The correct pH balance in the body helps to maintain weight, lowers the risk of diabetes, joint pain, leg cramps, and other chronic diseases. And it also aids in having clean and clear skin.

Drink alkaline water

Most of us are not hydrated enough, drink minimum 8-10 glasses of alkaline water every day to check acid reflux. Check the alkaline level of the water, most tap water has 6.5 pH while alkaline water has a pH scale of 9 which balances the acidic alkaline level in the body. Alkaline water has molecules which permeate the body easily and keep us more hydrated than regular water.

Boost your metabolism with natural energy drinks-

Kick start your day with lemon and honey water, cleanse your system before you re-fill it. It is a misnomer that citrus drinks are acidic. Lemon juice in its natural state is acidic but once metabolized it has an alkalizing effect with pH scale of 7+.  It is important to note that lemon is acid in nature but once consumed its effect is alkalizing with a lot of health benefits.

Add green leafy vegetables to your meal

Eat alkalizing food like green vegetables beetroot, avocado, broccoli, spinach, kale, peas, beans, and cucumber. Increase your fruit intake.

Almonds- snack on nuts, almonds are power packed super food with natural alkaline products.

Avoid– cut down on carbs, caffeine, meat, refined flour, white sugar, and dairy products. Skip milk as it is acid forming.

Cut on alcohol- All the alcoholic drinks have high sugar content and are acidic in nature

Yoga and Pranayam/breathing exercise 

This has the dual benefit of oxygenating and alkalizing the blood and releasing the acids from the body through sweat.

De-Stress– Pranayam followed by meditation is a stress buster. Stress causes acidic reflux in the system. Make your body alkaline to fight disease.

Do not resort to prescription drugs, take recourse to natural care.
