Do you know what’s acid reflux? Well, acid reflux is the backward flow of stomach acid into the esophagus — the tube that connects the throat and stomach. You should also know that acid reflux is an extremely common health problem, affecting as many as 50 percent of Americans. Acid reflux is more specifically known as gastro esophageal reflux.

The most common symptom of acid reflux is frequent heartburn. Other signs and symptoms may include regurgitation of food or sour liquid, difficulty swallowing, coughing, wheezing, and chest pain — especially while lying down at night. If you have acid reflux, lifestyle changes can help, like losing excess weight, eat smaller meals, and avoid foods that seem to trigger heartburn — such as fried or fatty foods, chocolate, and peppermint. Avoiding alcohol and nicotine may help, too. In this article we are going to show you few simple tips and tricks how to get rid of acid reflux, in all natural way.
You should avoid habits that trigger acid reflux

Doing both will improve your health overall, in addition to relieving acid reflux.
