Can Ginger Treat GERD?

Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
GERD is a disease characterized by an increase in gastric asm that turns up to the esophagus which triggers irritation and inflammation due to acid.
Studies at Harvard Medical have mentioned that ginger can be one of the choices of herbal therapies for stomach acid disease, this is related to the nature of ginger which is believed to play an anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant role. But still not enough research that shows the effectiveness of the work and the body's response to the ginger.
In the meantime what you can do include:
Avoid spicy, sour, coconut milk, oily foods
Eat more often with small portions, 4-5x per day
Not late eating
Increase fiber intake such as fruits and vegetables
Avoid caffeinated drinks like tea coffee and soda
Increase your water intake
Avoid eating too late or just before going to bed
Sleep with 2-3 pillows in a leaning position to prevent stomach acid from rising into the esophagus
Doing relaxation of mind with yoga or meditation
Get enough sleep and rest, 7-9 hours per day
Exercise regularly and regularly
If the complaint that you feel does not improve or you are worried you should check yourself with a specialist in internal medicine to get further examination and treatment related to the condition
So much information from me, hopefully it helps
