Before we get to the acid reflux disease home cure consider what is going on with the disease process. Then lets look at the home remedies. Finally if and when they don't work, we will look at why and the glutathione disease cure alternative.
Then we will share the one simple treatment that is in your cupboard, costs practically nothing and in the original testing on several thousands, had dramatic results.
Gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD is the damage of the mucus membranes (the pink tissue like inside your mouth) resulting from reflux of gastric secretions (stomach juices splashing up) into the esophagus.
The main symptom is heartburn (a burning sensation behind the breastbone) more than once a week.
Note This may be a pre-cancerous condition. If you are over 60 your risk of cancer increases.
In related medical studies there is a notable decrease in glutathione in the GERD damaged cells and the near by cells.
So, the acid reflux disease home cures below will only will only help manage the symptoms. They will not necessarily increase glutathione. The only clinically proven way to increase glutathione is by dietary intake of cysteine. First the skinny on some home cures.
Do not Drink Chlorinated Water
Our body is an incredible chemical factory. As such, it maintains a strict chemical balance. Add to much extra chemical and it will have a hard time managing those chemicals. Studies have shown that glutathione is one of the main defenses of chemical tissue destruction in the body.
This is one of the most basic acid reflux disease home cures. There are other basics like stress management and not laying down for two hours after eating.
Note: We have a better solution than vinegar. You will see it below.
In addition to pickling cucumbers, it can preserve your health or at least that is what a number of successful users will tell you. There is little medical research on the effectiveness of ACV on health problems. There are some, just not on GERD.
Some studies even associate it improvement in diabetes and obesity.
It has been a folk medicine for decades, in recent years it has experienced a resurgence in use. There is a pill form of the same substance.
The list of things it is supposed to cure is quite long excluding only crime and violence.
There is little or no medical evidence as to the effectiveness of these claims.
The liquid from crushed apples is broken down by fermentation into alcohol. Then it is further fermented into vinegar.
The principle active ingredient is acetic acid. There are also claims of other acids, vitamins, mineral salts, and amino acids that make up vinegars. The amount in a single table spoon will be so little that it will not come even close to providing a noticeable percentage of daily requirements.
Interesting Fact...according to the USDA, apple cider vinegar does not contain vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, or folate.
What about other chemical substances with health benefits? Nutritional analyses shown no significant amounts of amino acids, ethyl alcohol, caffeine, theobromine, beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, beta-cryptoxanthin, lycopene, lutein, or zeaxanthin.
One Apple Cider Vinegar Study even suggests that it may increase your glutathione levels (at least in your pet female lab mice). This is good news because it is one more way we can improve our health by simply adding something to our diet.
Some take one to two table spoons mixed in a cup of water or juice daily. For sore throat it is used as a gargle first then swallowed.
Note Apple Cider Vinegar comes in a pill...There is a study from 2005 that considered the ingredients of 8 different brands of supplements. The research was telling.
The list of ingredients listed on the box were not the actual ingredients in the box.
There was a great variation between ingredients of the different brands.
The recommended dosage of the varied amounts of what ever was in the pills varied between the brands.
When examined chemically, the samples left the researchers doubting whether any of the samples actually contained any apple cider vinegar at all. (actual study not yet found).
A lot of people swear by ACV and feel it truly works as a natural cure for gastric reflux.
The main ingredient does help our bodies absorb minerals. So a glass with a table spoon in it before a meal could be beneficial in several ways.
Dark, leafy green vegetables sometimes contain natural ingredients that prevent absorption of calcium. Vinegar as salad dressing can help the food be more palatable and help the absorption of the essential dietary ingredients.
Additionally a 10 percent solution of vinegar in water will neutralize many pesticides or other farm related chemical residues. Soak briefly, swish, and then rinse with water.
This does not work for fragile fruits like berries as they may soak up the vinegar. The vinegar will also not get below waxy coatings over some fruits.
The damage to the mucous membranes can be reversed. This is in part because the mucous membrane is the fastest healing tissue in the body. So to some degree the acid reflux disease home cure is eating right and other behavior modifications.
The benefits of promotion of healing are well reported in literature. Studies have shown that the mucosa in a number of gastrointestinal track conditions can be healed or benefited by boosting the bodies glutathione.
If the apple cider vinegar does not work or stops working, then as an alternative, consider the various ways to improve the bodies defense and control of this condition.
Give the body the tools to heal and manage its self. Instead of treating the symptoms, help the body heal.
Some do feel that boosting your bodies glutathione is indeed an alternative to the acid reflux disease home cure when it does not work.
There is one treatment that is hands down better than anything else. It not only ends acid reflux, it prevents it. This is based on the work of Dr. F. Batmanghelidj who discovered that acid reflux is the result of chronic and unintentional fluid and electrolyte imbalance.
What this means is that if you take a pinch of salt, dissolve it in your mouth and then drink a glass of water and you can make it go away. Drink the water and take the salt daily and it will never come back.
Bonus: studies show water cures also boosts your glutathione.

The Way to Make More GSH For Free
Glutathione has a high affinity for water. Simply put, if we are dehydrated our bodies may not make as much as they could. Or, what we do make may be less effective.
Usually there is something more than just being dehydrated. Often there is a condition called fluid and electrolyte imbalance, less than bodies needs. There is a simple, easy and inexpensive way to correct this, allowing your body to produce even more GSH.
The Water Cures Protocol really works. Give it a try today.
It is simple, easy, sustainable and affordable (the salt should cost less than $10 a year).
And like GSH, it will help with over 76 different diseases and conditions.
