What are some quick and easy heartburn home remedies?
I'm desperate. I've had horrible heartburn for over three hours now with no signs of it abating. I took some Nexium about 15 minutes ago but it's going to take a while to kick in. It hurts so badly I can barely breathe. I need something to ease the heartburn quickly, but I don't have any Tums or antacids. Does anyone know any quick and easy home remedies that might help for heartburn?
Hi! I hope this isn't too overly promotional of my own work but I actually just wrote an article on this topic for pregnant women and all the remedies work whether you are pregnant or not. Hope this helps! http://madisonresare.hubpages.com/hub/H … -Pregnancy
I would avoid getting heartburn the first place but I would warm - not hot, just warm - warm up some milk and add half a teaspoon of cinnamon, stir until cinnamon is melted/mixed in. Drink it when possible while warm.
I'm going to go try that now. Thanks!
Unfortunately, I didn't have access to anything Madison mentioned... and we don't have cinnamon either. I dug through the spice cabinet. Nada. Seems I'm destined for heartburn today. But thank you for your advice; I'm very grateful!
Oh man that sucks! I've had 5 children so I def know what that's like! Regular antacids don't work for me either. My dad is a firm believer in baking soda, a quarter of a teaspoon with a quarter cup of water will knock it right out. Something I also found helps a lot believe it or not, is drinking pickle juice. It always knocked it out temporarily for me. Hope this helps!
1/2 teaspoon baking soda in a glass of water will help -- but, do not make this a long term or often remedy.
Homeopathic treatment I personally recommend - eat an apple before bed each night, I dont know why but i have gerd, which causes severe heartburn which can damage my esophagus so i have to watch out for it all the time and my doctors all told me to eat an apple every night before bed, even when i didnt have heartburn that day, but just preventative. and it worked. i havent had heartburn in ages.
I wrote an extensive article about heartburn, as well as other stomach issues. http://artist101.hubpages.com/hub/IBS-I … Treatments
Among the remedies for heartburn include baking soda, apple cider vinegar, as well as chewing a magnesium tablet, as well as kelp. Dr Teitelbaum developed a tablet for heartburn, called acid ease, which contains kelp. Found to be very effective. My father swore by baking soda. I take magnesium on a regular basis, and knock on wood, I don't have the problem. I take it at night before bedtime. 200-400mg, any more than that and it can cause diarrhea. Hope it helps
