At night sometimes I am abruptly awakened by a feeling of warm liquid coming up into my espohagus. Other times, I only wake with a burny throat or tongue. I also can have the burny tongue and throat happen during the day. This is not all the time but frequently. I am looking for a natural way to help this as I hate to start on drugs. I have already elevated the head of my bed. I don't smoke, drink, no caffeine, soft drinks, eat a low fat diet, etc. But I do have a lot of stress in my life due to family illness. I am presently working with meditation and stress relief tapes through a counselor. What can I do naturally to reduce the acid while I am working on improving my handling of the stress?
