Alternative Acid Reflux Remedies

Acid Reflux Remedies

both over the counter and prescription medications are quite common however some people do not find the relief they need and consequently those people will often turn to homeopathic remedies to solve their problem. Real homeopathic solutions, just like their prescription drug counterparts can be an effective solution to acid reflux symptoms but they are not intended for prolonged use. In fact, use of these remedies should be discontinued as soon as the acid reflux symptoms are deemed to be under control.

There seems to be some confusion among the general public that homeopathic medication is another way of saying natural or herbal remedy. They are in fact different approaches, and effective solutions to acid reflux symptoms can be found especially when combined with remedial changes to diet and lifestyle.

Herbal Remedies

are both natural and effective when used correctly. Some frequently recommended herbs are ginger, licorice or marshmallow root, chamomile, anise and fennel. Homeopathic remedies, on the other hand are more tailored to an individual and are prepared by a qualified homeopathic practitioner, but only after they conduct a extensive patient interview. Since homeopathic remedies are tailored to the individual, generally their effectiveness on another person will be negligible.

Generally herbs are chosen for their historical effectiveness whereas homeopathic remedies are chosen based on the principle of administering a tiny portion of the same substance that in a larger dose would cause the symptom. This approach appears to have a significant effectiveness especially in cases where prescription medicines have little or no effectiveness or cause unwanted side effects in some patients.

In any case, it is important to make regular visits to your doctor after you have been diagnosed with acid reflex even when you think your condition is cured and be sure to keep your doctor apprised of any homeopathic or herbal remedies for your acid reflux you may be taking, as there may be side effects caused when combined with prescription medicines your doctor may prescribe.
