Thank youI just wanted to say I woke up today with such bad heartburn I couldn't take it-actually woke me up, I needed a VERY quick fix so I had some chewing gum, some mustard (eww), papaya only 1 slice, 1 slice lemon, some cold water and some yoghurt I just had it all one after another and now 10 minutes later I'm completely heartburn free-I'll be sure to always keep these things handy but I think it was the yoghurt that did it for me (petite filous) it was ice cold down my throat.

Mustard!!I get horrible heartburn and acid reflux often. I found that the fastest-acting home remedy for me was MUSTARD. Just get a saltine cracker or slice of bread, put some mustard on it, eat and you'll begin feeling relief almost instantly. I know it sounds weird, but aren't most home remedies that actually work usually kind of weird? Just try it. I promise it works!!

WaterRight when you feel the heartburn coming on, get a large glass of water and drink it. It will wash all that acid down back into your stomach.

Baking sodaPut together a teaspoon of baking soda together with water to balance out the acid in your stomach, mostly after consuming spicy foods. This home remedy typically works well in just minutes, the water has got to be cool, however not too cold. Don’t apply this remedy that often, especially when you have heartburn regularly. Baking soda is extremely high in salt and most likely will result in water retention and high blood pressure should you use it a lot Learn more here : heartburnnomorre.Uni.Me/

Apple cider vinegar and bitter foodsI had really bad, painful, chronic heartburn. Relieving constipation with enzymes and fiber helped. My naturopath told me that it was also the result of not having enough bile to breakdown food, that somehow you get all acidy because you don't actually have adequate amounts of acid to promote digestion. So she told me to drink Apple Cider Vinegar regularly, before meals and to eat bitter foods in my diet, such as lemons, granny smith apples, arugula, ect.
I used organic apple cider vinegar with the Mother frequently because I don't like eating bitter foods, I'd rather just drink a shotglass of diluted vinegar and get it over with. I can't stand lemon juice LoL but that would work just as well. The truth is I tried all the remedies here and nothing worked for me for fast, miraculous pain relief. Apple Cider Vinegar was not a quick fix either, in fact it made it feel temporaily worse BUT it cured it after regularly remembering to drink it before my meals within 24 hours and as long as I remember to eat bitter things every now and then, it never happens anymore.
It's not like vinegar is good for fast pain relief and it can actually burn even more, but it does fix the underlying problem and that is the most important thing.
Also, another thing I realize for myself is if I eat late and sleep on a full stomach, it would give me heartburn that night and maybe the following day, so when a full undigested stomach is the culprit, it helps to get up and move a bit and apply heat - I just take a bath, drink some water during and afterwards I feel better.
Generally, it's not good to eat late because digestion slows down so much, but I have to because I work out late at night some days.

Ginger and oatmealWhile suddenly waking up from really bad heartburn earlier today, I looked up foods people with acid reflux should eat. I quickly made a cup of oatmeal. I threw some ice cubes in it so it didn't burn even more going down! Then I found some ginger cookies and started eating those. This was all after my acid reducer pill didn't work. About 20 mins later, the pain started to subside tremendously. I definitely felt improvement while I was eating as well.
