Fennel is highly beneficial for improving digestion and suppressing stomach spasms. It has a compound called anethole that helps calm spasms in the gastrointestinal tract and has anti-inflammatory effects.

  • Simply chew one-half teaspoon of fennel seeds after meals.
  • Alternatively, you can boil one teaspoon of fennel seeds in a cup of water. Let it steep for 10 minutes and then strain it. Drink it two or three times a day for a few days.

    1. I,ve used these for years” good to see them this, I,m sure it has helped many people, my great grandmom used some of them nostalgic for me” Thx

  1. Your health tips are very very helpful, in fact you don;t know how many lives you’ve saved. Thank you ! Thank you !! Thank you !!!

  2. I can say today I am alive because of drinking apple cider vinegar. I read this info long time ago somewhere and it really worked and I actually added baking soda in it..

  3. Raw, unfiltered honey cured my chronic GERD/Acid Reflux. I am symptom free.
    Most of the honey sold in the US is pasteurized, filtered or adulterated with who knows what. The label must contain the words “raw, unfiltered.”

  4. All these remedies are to reduce the symptoms. my husband had acis reflux due to E.Coli (which is the most common cause). He took a tiny piece of mastica every morning along with a glass of water with 3tablespoons of good quality honey..After two weeks he had no symptoms

    1. A slow bowel due to food with too low fibre and high in processed sugars. . The bowel should empty every day . Twice a day is better… some ppl only empty their biwel every 3 or 4 days . Some longer . This backs up in bowel preventing stomach from emptying completly..so build up of undigested food bubbles up into the throat. Burning … simply solution. Squeeźe lemon juice in water . Drink it slowly . Lemon juice buffers stomach acid. Cleans the blood. For the bowel… increase fibre and water intake. You might get wind etc in the first week but that will pass as the bowel is cleansed.

  5. Is Apple Cedar Vinegar easily available in the market? What’s the price? I have this GERD since 2011 and till now I’m struggling with this damn disease…please help me. I want to try this tip…thank you

    1. Is this a real question like really are you seriously​ asking if one of the most common things on the planet is readily available……I would hope so since Americans use/consume well over 30m gallons of it a year in barbeque sauce alone also works wonders for cleaning hardwood floor acid reflux as a mildly effective natural CLR and a nearly limitless list of applications

  6. Comment:
    I have been following your posts and my acid reflux has reduced drastically. I have seen a good turn around in my life. Thank you.

  7. Hi
    I would like to know if its safe to drink both baking soda and apple cider vinegar at once or drink one after an hour you drink the other. My suffering from throat burn that comes and go every now and then. Thanks for the listing those home remedies.

  8. If you have gerd, avoid coffee and tea and chocolate. Also avoid acid foods like citrus. Make sure that you do not lie down for one to two hours after eating. And yes, apple cider vinegar and baking soda both work, but you should also get checked out by a doctor since it can lead to cancer in throat and stomach.
