Cider and Soda for heart burn.

If prescription and over the counter medications don't work for you either then try this cheap and effective remedy for Acid reflux and Heartburn. Take Half a glass of room temp water, 1/2 teaspoon of Baking Soda and 2 Tablespoons of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar first thing in the morning, wait an hour before eating and then repeat this at night before bed.

The reason you need to take the mixture is to Alkalize the stomach which will reduce acidity in the gut. Do this for 2 weeks. You should avoid Caffeine, Sugars, Meats, and Dairy foods as these are Acid forming. Replace them with Alkaline forming foods such as Green vegetables, Salads, Fish and Fresh Fruits.

You will be amazed out how much energy you will have and you will also loose weight without trying. It is also important to remain positive as you may find it depressing at first to cut out all these foods your so used to eating, positive thinking has a lot more effect on our general health than we realize.

It is also important to do 20 minutes of Aerobic exercise a day to get oxygen pumping through the blood to reduce lactic acid and fat build up. Once the 2 weeks are up you should follow up with daily maintenance on the stomach, take Half a teaspoon of baking soda in the Half glass of water to keep the stomach Alkaline. By this stage your heartburn should have subsided completely, you can now slowly re- introduce some of the foods we cut out in the beginning, remember moderation is the key.

Apple Cider Vinegar and licorice

Apple cider vinegar cured my heartburn like a miracle. Get the natural kind if you can, with sediment at the bottom of the bottle. (If you don't live near a natural foods store, just buy the regular kind at a grocery store and it will work almost as well.) Dissolve 2 tablespoons in a cup of water and sip it slowly once a day as a preventative. Or take 2 tablespoons straight for immediate relief. (It will burn for a few seconds, then after 5 minutes you'll belch and then feel a lot better.) This changed my life. Now I can eat and drink whatever I want, and sleep all night without any disturbance.

I also drink a cup of licorice tea everyday, because the person who suggested the vinegar said licorice would help heal a damaged esophagus. I don't know if it's helping, but I sure feel a lot better!

Gas Relief for Babies

During the '70's and '80's I had 6 babies all of which had tummy aches and gas. I would drop a peppermint disc into a warm bottle of water, swish it around a bit and give it to my baby. This remedy never failed once, it proved true every time.

Thinking about Partying? Think Again

If you get heartburn real easy, you might as well forget about partying, especially when the holidays come around. Check out this list that the International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders says triggers heartburn:

-Holiday Feasts
-Late Night Snacks
-Too Much to Drink
-Cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and chewing tobacco
-Tea, coffee, cola, and other drinks with caffeine.
-Citrus fruits and Juices
-Tomatoes and tomato products
-Fried fatty and spicy foods.

Geezz there goes my favorite foods :(

Heartburn remedy

I got excited when I read an article published in the New England Journal of Medicine (years ago) that documented the power of saliva to ease heartburn. It recommended sucking on a lozenge or chewing sugarless gum.

I was suffering from heartburn on a daily basis, sometimes even with the medications. I was taking over the counter acid suppressors and decided to try chewing gum after breakfast and after lunch. It has been very successful for me.

I tried to eliminate the after dinner heartburn tablets, and can successfully stave off heartburn all evening, but sometimes the heartburn comes in the middle of the night, (and my husband does not want to raise the head of the bed,) so I take a heartburn tablet before dinner or at bedtime to counter a middle of the night attack.

Who could have guessed getting rid of heartburn could be so easy?

Relief for heartburn

I don't know it this is relief for heartburn, or upset stomach, but I always drink a glass of milk and it goes away. I know alot of people can't drink milk, but milk helps me.

When I had morning sickness I always ate crackers first thing in the morning to control it.

But my daughter got heartburn bad when she was pregnant and all the Malox and Tums in the world wouldn't help.
