Heartburn Treatment

Treatment for your heartburn in an emergency situation could be as simple as taking a teaspoon of aluminum free baking soda and downing it with about 8 to 10 ounces of water.

On the other hand if your heart burn isn’t from lack of stomach acid the last thing you will want is an antacid, natural or not. What if treating your heartburn with an antacid made your heartburn worse, which is often the case?

The phrase heartburn treatment is misleading to most people, because heartburn isn’t a cause, it’s a symptom and treating symptoms never changes anything. Nothing ever changes at the symptom level, to get rid of your heartburn. I have to presume is the reason you typed in that search term or phrase ‘heartburn Treatment,’ is because you want the cause of your heartburn be healed, not just treated.

A treatment is what people do when they don’t care about the cure; they just want the symptoms to go away . . . if you want to you can use Over-The-Counter (OTC) gimmicks as a heartburn treatment. If you don’t care about your health, just ignore any sign of ill health.

The end result is always the same; the drug companies get rich and you stay miserable or you may even get worse.

Listen, not everyone with heartburn has the same cause of heartburn, so why would you take what everyone else is told to take?

Even if you do have too much stomach acid, which is rarer than you may know, even so, the antacids are chocked full of toxic ingredients and other unknown factors. Did you know some antacid ingredients which are harmful aren’t even required to be listed by the FDA if they are below 1%? That’s right; this opens the door for all kinds of things like artificial sweeteners, some of which can contribute to metabolic disorders and worse.

Any heartburn treatment should be based on some knowledge of what is really causing your heartburn symptoms. It could be that you need help digesting food in your stomach and that?s why your stomach acid is rising near the top, because it’s all undigested food is at the bottom.

Treating heartburn and curing heartburn are two completely different actions. If your heartburn symptoms are from lack of digestive power, you could start treating your heartburn by eating more sea salt and raw vegetables, supplementing with probiotics and prebiotic foods and changing some eating and exercising habits too.

You were born to heal,
