I have GERD (chronic acid reflux). Which one(s) of your potion do you recommend to help with that? And what do you recommend to swap in for my morning coffee? Thank you.
Hi there... it seems the best thing to focus on for supporting acid reflux would be adaptogens and tonic herbs that work to support healthy digestion. I recommend a tea of Chamomile which may soothe the digestive tract with a dropperful of Triphala elixir in some evening tea, maybe alongside a spoonful of raw honey. This combination may support and soothe symptoms. If you are looking for an alternative to coffee, check out our Chaga, Moringa or White Dragon Matcha!
