Chamomile tea for relieving stress-induced acid reflux

Chamomile Tea for gerd

If you think only food can cause acid reflux, you may be in for a shock as stress is a common acid reflux trigger. Stress can affect many gut functions, and we know that patients who are under a lot of psychological stress suffer from more severe reflux symptoms without necessarily having more severe reflux. A 2015 study reviewed the prevalence of lifestyle factors associated with gastroesophageal disease (GERD). On a prolonged basis, if a person experiences acid reflux, the esophagus gets irritated by the acids leading to scarring, ulcer, swelling, or hemorrhaging and in severe cases, may lead to esophageal cancer. Most common medical solutions for acid reflux include Pepto-Bismol and TUMS, but could there be a natural remedy? If you prefer natural remedies without the nasty side effects of prolonged antacid use,  then this home remedy will come in handy. Next time, you can enjoy your food without a fear of heartburn, thanks to the discovery of Chamomile tea leaves!

Chamomile Tea

Chamomile tea, a member of the daisy family is a herbal tea, which isn’t just delicious and relaxing, but helps with sleep and is often served with either honey or lemon. The fruity flavour soothes a person down acting as a muscle relaxant and a mild sedative. This herbal tea also acts as an anti-inflammatory and has similar benefits to pain relievers like aspirin. However one of the biggest pros of chamomile tea is in countering acid reflux.

Chamomile and acid reflux

If you have acid reflux, a hot cup of chamomile tea may be a great choice to drink as it helps to reduce the amount of acid present in your stomach, thus settling down your roiling stomach muscles. Chamomile will stop your stomach from sending the acid back up your throat and will help to keep your food moving along your digestive system without causing upset. Chamomile tea also helps reduce stress and can prevent stress-related acid reflux episodes.

The bioflavonoids or phytonutrients present in the chamomile herb provide potent anti-oxidants to the tea which helps reverse the stress produced in the body thus preventing stress induced acid reflux.

The tea also treats digestive issues, such as irritable bowel syndrome, diarrhea, and colic.

According to studies, the preparation of chamomile tea is more effective than antacids at preventing secondary hyperacidity.

Eliminating the discomfort of acid reflux can be done without expensive over-the-counter medications. There are many natural remedies readily available. Feel better naturally; your body will thank you!
