Based on my research, acid reflux is from a lack of acid in the body, not a build-up. It's counter-intuitive until you understand it. It's usually caused by eating too many acidic foods (i.e. white sugar, coffee, processed carbs, etc). which require stomache acids to break them down (the old saying that 'like dissolves like' applies here).

You need to add specific fruits/veggies to your diet that will help to add healthy acids to your body, which (and this is the counter-intuitive part) will turn your body back to a more alkaline (i.e. basic) state. Certain fruits/veggies are acidic, but when processed by the body, chemically turn alkaline.

Fruits/veggies:
*(make sure you drink water/brush teeth after eating these foods so you don't hurt your teeth enamel. They are highly acidic).*

- Lemons/lemon water
- Apple cider vinegar
- Apples
- spinach/kale smoothies

There's probably other remedies. Check out www.earthclinic.com

Good luck!

I took Prilosec OTC for a few years. Now regular visits to the chiropractor keeps acid reflux knocked out. Where I used to live, the chiropractor used a little gadget on my sternum/solar plexus area. I occasionally do the same rapid pecking with a stiff finger and get a little relief.

I have moved and my current chiropractor seems to be more effective in dealing with my acid reflux. He adjusts my anteriors in my back and that seems to provide much longer lasting relief.

I was very hesitant in initially going to a chiropractor and likewise in finding a new one. I don't know what to say if you're reluctant to go to a chiropractor other than I am sympathetic to you but taking the plunge worked for me. I have also seen 2 others in this new office. None of them hurt me. But I have had the best adjustments with the 3 men and they have been in the 34 - 54 year old age range. Just my experience.
