We all must avoid foods that will affect us and learn to relax...nething to help to naturally reduce the acid in our system.
Once u have the acid under control, u may want to try some all natural items, BUT always discuss these with ur dr.Keep in mind, all natural does not mean u might not have a reaction to it..or that it will work.
