Natural Remedies for Relief of Reflux Symptoms

by NaturalRemedies

All natural remedies for the relief of acid reflux symptoms: Carrot juice, celery seed, aloe vera, pulsatilla, Bio King Homeopathic remedies, Zypan, and apple cider vinegar.

Do you have acid reflux? Maybe you follow “doctor’s orders” and take medication, or maybe you’ve chosen not to. Maybe you have occasional reflux symptoms like heartburn or indigestion. Maybe you have constant symptoms! Are you looking for some natural remedies for relief? Well you’ve come to the right place.

Certain times of year (Chinese calendar, anyone?) I have fairly constant reflux symptoms, no matter what I do or don’t eat. I stopped taking prescription and over-the-counter drugs several years ago (Not a recommendation, just my choice). For me, there are many natural remedies that give me relief. Unfortunately, nothing works long term, so I am constantly rotating natural remedies for my reflux symptoms. Maybe one or more of the remedies below will help you (with the consent of your health care provider of course).

Carrot Juice

Carrot juice is one of my current “go-to” remedies for my heartburn and indigestion.  My chiropractor told me about it.  I usually buy Odwalla carrot juice.  You can find it in half gallon size in the produce department refrigerated section.  It comes in organic, but I have to go to Whole Foods for that, which is not exactly close to where I live.  So I often buy the non-organic Odwalla.  Costco usually carries a brand of organic carrot juice, in a three pack, in smaller bottles. 

I’ve tried a fair few brands, and they are surprisingly pleasant tasting, with natural sweetness.  Just pour yourself two to three ounces after meals. 

Celery Seed

I always keep celery seed around, and carry it in my purse or work bag.  Since it is a capsule, it is very convenient to use this product when you’re away from home.  My naturopath told me about this remedy.  I usually buy Solaray Celery Seed, 505 mg per capsule, and per my NP’s recommendation, take 2 capsules after meals.

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera comes in capsules, but I always use the juice.  There are many brands and sizes (up to a gallon) available.  Some are fruit flavored, which are pretty good, but I don’t mind the plain.  It’s not delicious, but not terrible either.  My massage therapist told me about this one, recommending 2 ounces at bedtime.  I have to admit, this did not really do it for me.  Another friend, a lifelong natural medicine proponent, recommended 11 ounces every night at bedtime.  That seems excessive to me, and I would never try that much without talking to my naturopath.  I do however sometimes drink two or three ounces after meals for symptoms. 


Pulsatilla is a homeopathic remedy.  My naturopath is also certified in homeopathy (and herbalism).  I get pulsatilla 200C liquid from him, and take nine drops after meals.  Pulsatilla has been my most effective natural remedy overall for acid reflux symptoms.  Homeopathic remedies are thought to be completely free of adverse side effects. 

I have not used the Boiron pulsatilla pellets, but have used many other Boiron products, such as arnica (for pain).

Ginger Tea

Ginger is a digestive aid.  Have a cup of ginger tea after meals.  Pour boiling water over your tea bag.  Cover and steep for 10-15 minutes.  You can sweeten with stevia, but I drink mine plain.  It has a slightly peppery hot taste, but I enjoy this tea. 

King Bio

King Bio is another homeopathic remedy.  I recently bought their Heartburn Reliever.  I must admit, I am usually looking for another reliever, such as carrot juice or pulsatilla an hour or so later.  But if the same thing worked for everyone, we’d only need one of everything, right?  Use three sprays two to six times a day for symptoms. 

I have used other products from the King Bio Homeopathic Natural Medicine line, and swear by them.  I use the Sinus Relief almost daily, and keep their Lungs & Bronchial Relief, and their Sore Throat & Laryngitis relief on hand.  I start using them at the first signs of symptoms. 

King Bio Heartburn Relief 2 Oz

For fast relief of acid reflux, burning pain, sour stomach, belching, indigestion, nausea, stomach spasms, and stomach distention.

Are Reflux Symptoms Actually Due to Not Enough Acid?

Most alternative medicine practitioners cite a deficiency of stomach acid, either not having enough acid, or having acid that is too dilute, as the problem in reflux.  Remedies therefore consist of increasing acid in the stomach. 


Zypan by Standard Process consists in part of hydrochloric acid.  This product helped me a lot, and was instrumental in finally eliminating prescription medicine (proton pump inhibitor).  My Zypan was supervised by my chiropractor (through Applied Kinesiology), and then my naturopath.  I usually took about two tablets after each meal.

Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother

How many uses are there for apple cider vinegar?!  Hundreds it seems.  One is to relieve acid reflux symptoms.  This would be another natural remedy based on the premise that you need more or stronger acid.  I personally know several people who swear by apple cider vinegar, either to relieve heartburn, or to help with weight loss. 

I’ve heard everything from drinking one teaspoon to two tablespoons after meals.  I usually do about one tablespoon.  I try to drink it quickly, then have a sip of water to wash down the burning.  Sometimes I dilute the vinegar with a tablespoon of water.  You don’t want to have too much water, because the idea is to increase your acid, not dilute it.
