  • Take Ginger Capsules (500 to 2,000 miligrams)
  • Place some crackers by your bed at night and eat a few upon waking before getting out of bed to soak up excess stomach acid
  • Juice 1 medium potato in a juicer or blender, pass through a strainer, and mix the juice with 1 cup of warm water. Drink on an empty stomach in the morning upon waking. The potato juice will coat your stomach and reduce acid.
