There Are Some Tips and Tricks To Living With The Uncomfortable Condition Known as Acid RefluxAnyone diagnosed with acid reflux disease understands the need to control the eruptions that signal that the acid reflux is alive and well.

You can live with this uncomfortable condition if you make it possible to make lifestyle changes that not only cover up the condition but also allow you to embrace a new life without the discomforts of acid reflux.

It won’t be possible to cure acid reflux but you can manage the symptoms, and perhaps alleviate or prevent the symptoms in the future.

Tips to help you manage your acid reflux:

Instead of eating 3 big meals, chose instead to eat 6 smaller meals. This will allow your stomach to handle the food better and relieve the gastric pressure.

Keep a regular bedtime and make a point not to eat or drink anything for least 2 hours before bedtime.

When you do lie down for naps or to sleep at night make sure that the upper part of your body is elevated such as napping sitting up in a chair, or rising the head of the bed.
