I've been acting naughty lately...indulging in so many cookies lately and today found in myself with hearburn.

Any tips about how to handle or cope during heartburn???

I don't have any Maalox right now, so anything other than it please!

Thanks! Ras~

Sorry to hear you have heartburn Ras,
I found some remedies that may help.

Chewing gum stimulates the production of saliva, which neutralizes the acid and helps push the digestive juices back down into the stomach where they belong. If you have a continuing problem and choose to chew gum, it would be preferable to use a natural brand that uses xylitol instead of sugar as a sweetener.

Sucking on hard candy or other means of producing more saliva will also be helpful.

Put a hot water bottle over your liver (upper right abdomen). This will help your liver and gallbladder function better to digest what you have eaten.

Don't lie down if you have heartburn, as stomach acids will back up into the esophagus; stand or sit up instead

Remedies
Folk
Banana Eating bananas seems to be very beneficial for relieving heartburn. Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body. You may also use ground dried banana.

Chamomile tea works well too.

I always find that tums work the best for me.

Good Luck,

Isis

put some baking soda in some water and drink it. It tastes really nasty but it should do the trick.

Thanks Isis and Dustpuff for the quick reply. I really needed that!

I do have many of the things mentioned, so I will try the banana, herb tea/Chamomile tea and baking soda.

Thanks folks and bless you!!!XOXOXO
