Paul Haider There are a number of natural ways to work with acid reflux. Here are some suggestions: First of all you have to avoid the offending foods and agents that cause acid reflux disease then there is no reason for having the disease in the first place. Eat dinner no later than 7PM so you can digest your food before going to bed. Distress, relax, listen to music, do some yoga, or qigong, or Tai Chi and meditate before going to bed to calm the mind/body Stay away from spicy, salty, acid foods and alcohol that might trigger acid reflux. And eat 5 or 6 smaller meals instead of 3 large meals a day.
