80 Home Remedies for HeartburnSubmit your Home Remedy for Heartburn
Mustard?I read so many reviews to find a way to stop this STUPID ridiculous amount of pain and most of them said mustard was the best. So I went in my fridge, grabbed the mustard and went ham. Squirted it straight into my mouth like you do with whipped cream. Then 'slowly' chugged some milk... IDK maybe this is heartburn from hell or something because first off, it hurts like hell, and second, the mustard didn't do anything but make it worse for like a minute then it reverted back to where it was, which suuucks.

2:30am.... ahhhhhI suggest drinking 8 oz of 3.25 percent homogenized milk whilst eating a banana. Alternating a bite for a sip. Sitting upright for about 5 minutes to allow this to settle and the proceed to lay back in bed. It saved me last night. 2 months preggers and that's the first time I could have killed my husband for his snoring while I suffered with the acid. This remedy allowed me to block out the snoring and cuddle up comfortably to fall back to sleep until 9:30 am.

Mustard!!My mom was suffering BADLY!!!!! This was not after a meal, but GERD in general. She quit Prilosec because she was on it for years and had to take a break. After trying her usual ACV and baking soda she was still in pain. Tablespoon of yellow mustard followed by about 4oz of Lactaid milk did the trick. Unbelievable, but true. Thanks to everyone who recommended. Now she is able to have a little bit to eat :-)

Mustard worked!3rd trimester Pregnant with such bad heartburn in the middle of the night thought I was going to go to emergency room. Like a burning hot poker in the middle of my chest. Mylanta did nothing and I can't take a double dose because of side effects to bub. Just took a big teaspoon of Dijon mustard because I didn't have yellow followed by milk (I'm actually dairy free but took it anyway). Felt a lot better then tried glass of water with baking soda and apple cider vinegar. This is the only thing that has provided any relief in over 2 hours of constant pain.
Not fully cured yet but if you are having this horrible pain you should try it- it didn't make it worse like I thought it would and best of all OK to have these things when pregnant (as far as I know!) Thanks for all the mustard posts!!

Milk and peppermintMilk does wonders as a Base food type for me. When ever I have heartburn or stomach aches milk is a nice drink to setting everything. Peppermint seems to work as well for me, as I am an avid gum chewer and most of the time I have an extra piece laying around in case heartburn strikes! My aunt warms up a tortilla with butter on it and it sometimes helps my little cousins out.

4am heartburn wake upI found this website at 4am looking for a way to relieve my heartburn. I took a nexium and tried sleeping upright and just water.
After seeing so many positive outcomes about mustard I finally went to the kitchen. 1 tsp yellow mustard and a shot of skim milk=relief. Who would have thought!

Rescued by a bananaI woke up gagging on acid and my initial attempted cure was alka seltzer. While it helped me burp, the severe acid pain in my throat remained making me gag and cough more. Did some quick internet searching and saw bananas were supposed to help. Ate 3/4 of one and am now back in bed. Not willing to lay down yet since I'm afraid it will return, but it certainly gave relief from the pain.
