What are some natural ways that I can cure my GERD?

I am 20 and have suffered from acid reflux for 3 1/2 years now. This year I got really sick and lost 15lbs within 3 weeks. I took Pepcid to control my acid reflux and it helped but now I am back and feeling horrible. I don’t know what else to do anymore I feel like I’m doomed to live with GERD and that’s not a happy life to live. I need help!!!

Take one tablespoon apple cider vinegar mixed with glass of water 3 times daily.

Here are few tips, that are really going to help you a lot…

		Eat small, regular meals rather than occasional big meals.
	
		After eating, stay upright; take a walk.
	
		If you are overweight, try to lose weight.
	
		Sleep with your head raised, which help to prevent acid reflux.
	
		Avoid hot spicy food, pickles, fermented food, chocolate, and coffee.
	
		Avoid alcoholic or very hot drinks.
	
		Minimize or cut out citrus fruit and sour fruit.
	
		Don’t wear tight-fitting clothes or belts.
	
		Don’t smoke; it may aggravate heartburn.
	
		Avoid stress. Take a sound sleep.
	
		Don’t sit hunched up at your desk; this will encourage heartburn. Try not bend or stoop over.
	
		Never go to bed or lie down immediately after a meal.
