Hello and welcome. If you are reading this, I assume you will be looking for a solution to discomfort from chronic heartburn, acid reflux, or if you’re unlucky enough, from GERD (Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease in the US, or GORD (Gastro Oesophageal Reflux Disease in the UK)). If you haven’t done so already, the first thing to do is to book an appointment with your doctor, to make sure it’s not something else – such as a heart problem.
In the meantime, If you are trying to figure out how to get rid of acid reflux, I suggest you have a look at “Symptoms” to start with, or jump straight to “Quick Fixes“. Also, don’t forget to check out “What Works?” – real life experiences of people who have found relief in a wide variety of remedies – both conventional and not so.
Acid reflux is a very personal disease, affecting sufferers in many different ways. Some treatments work well for some people, but not for others, who respond better to different approaches. There are many, many ways, both drug based and natural, of getting relief from it – I’ve documented over 100 in the post “100+ Ways of Slaying the Acid Reflux Dragon” – so don’t despair if one or more fail to help you – move on and try another (but always under the watchful eye of your physician if you have gerd). You can get access to this on the right (or at the bottom of this page if you’re reading on a mobile).
If you feel you’ve tried everything, but are still searching for the holy grail of relief, have a look at our section on “Surgery“.
Oh, and don’t forget to check out the latest posts on the right (or again at the bottom of this page if you’re reading on a mobile) – these cover the latest news about what’s working to ease the discomfort of acid reflux, or better still sign up for our newsletter to get the latest posts to your inbox here:
