Essential oils for Acid Reflux

Acid Reflux

Acid Reflux is a painful condition where the acid produced in the stomach goes back to the esophagus. It is experienced as a burning sensation below your breastbone and results in a number of symptoms, for instance, bloating, difficulty swallowing, and indigestion.

In addition, acid reflux is caused by various factors, for instance, lying down after eating a large meal, alcohol, eating acidic foods, pregnancy, and a leaky gut.
