This article caught my attention because my boyfriend Taylor seems to get acid reflux and heartburn (a symptom of acid reflux) quite easily. It’s pretty awesome actually, because he doesn’t get them as much anymore since we moved in together, and I’m sure it’s because I cook for him most of the time. Any time he eats something fatty and non-vegan he gets a stomach ache or acid reflux! Just goes to show you how powerful diet is. I have never experienced heartburn, and if I ever experienced acid reflux it hasn’t been in the last 10 years at least. And that’s why these natural remedies are pretty awesome, no medication or foreign chemicals your body won’t appreciate.
