Say Goodbye to Acid Reflux

By Rebecca

Are you a victim of acid reflux? Suffer no more! Take a look at these simple, natural, and effective ways to reduce your acid reflux symptoms for a happier, healthier digestive system.

Kale

Urban Remedy Macro Bowl with kaleKale is rich in nutrition, in sulfur, calcium, iron, and vitamin A, which help support the stomach and heal duodenal ulcers, thereby lowering the stomach’s acid levels. Acid reflux occurs when the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) fails to close properly. While eating kale will not aid the LES’s function, the minerals found in kale can decrease the stomach’s acid levels, which can help lower the amount of stomach acid available for escape.

At Urban Remedy, we love kale in all of our juice cleanses and salads. For a special crunchy treat, try our kale chips as your next afternoon snack!

Alkaline Diet

Urban-Remedy-Super-Green-Cold-Pressed-Juice-CleanseFor those looking for a more drastic change, switching to an alkaline meal plan maybe be the answer. An alkaline diet balances your body’s natural pH levels, neutralizing overly-acidic stomach bile, thereby decreasing your acid reflux.

How to start: Decrease consumption of meat, poultry, grains, fish, milk, cheese, shellfish, and salt. Instead, try adding foods full of nutrition, leafy greens, root veggies, fresh fruit, legumes, and nuts into your daily diet.

Our Super Green cleanse is a perfect way to jumpstart this kind of diet change.

Raw Purple Cabbage

Eating or drinking raw purple cabbage juice are two amazing ways to tame your tummy through increased nutrition. Cabbage is a naturally alkalizing food which helps regulate the body’s pH levels. In just 7 days, adding this leafy veggie into your diet can significantly reduce digestive issues, and even shrink ulcers!

Additional Perks? Purple cabbage is rich in sulfur, a premiere mineral for repairing and purifying the blood. Cleaner blood better transports oxygen throughout the body, increasing overall energy. Woo! Purple cabbage also has anti-cancer causing properties.

With nutrition, and healthy ingredients available to diffuse acid reflux symptoms, it is easy to decrease your discomfort and live tummy happy!
