You know you’re having an acid reflux when you feel that uncomfortable burning sensation in your chest, which often creeps back to your throat and makes you feel sick. Eating spicy or fatty food usually leads to this discomfort. Luckily, an easy home remedy works well to fix this—baking soda.
Sodium bicarbonate or baking soda has a high pH level that neutralizes the stomach acid. Once it does so, the acids settle down and don’t come up to your throat, causing that burning sensation. To use it, mix 1 tsp of baking soda in an 8oz glass of water, and stir well. Quickly drink this concoction for relief. However, make sure you don’t exceed six to seven glasses in a day.
