Heartburn Cures

Heartburn is caused when acid pours into the esophagus and irritates the exposed lining of the esophagus, causing a burning feeling in the stomach or chest. Heartburn can strike without warning and be very uncomfortable. If it is not treated, you may feel miserable. Therefore, there are several things that you can do to cure heartburn.

You should not lie down after eating. Your body needs the opportunity to digest your food before you go to sleep. When you do go to sleep, it is recommended that the upper extremity of your body is higher than the lower part of your body. This will avoid having heartburn during the middle of the night. You should also wear loose and comfortable clothing after eating.

You also need to watch what you eat. Try to elude foods that are spicy and acidic. If you
do eat them; do not eat too much at one time. To cure heartburn, you could lessen the amount that you eat. Smoking and drinking also do not help with heartburn, they only make it worse.

Many people try using natural herbs to cure heartburn. Herbs come in a natural form, or you can add them to tea or coffee. Some popular herbs to use for heartburn include baking soda, Aloe Vera juice and bananas. Drinking a glass of milk has also been known to help.

There are also several other things that you can ingest that have been known to cure heartburn, such as ginger ale, mustard, apple cider vinegar, converted rice and spearmint gum.

  • Ginger ale┬ácan settle a sour stomach and mustard can prevent an imbalance of acids in the stomach.
  • Vinegar will assist in soothing the acid in your stomach, and eating rice has carbohydrates to help the heartburn.
  • Chewing spearmint gum produces saliva, which aids in the flow of digestion.

If you are experiencing heartburn, weight loss might help. Too much weight can put lots of pressure on your abdomen, thus putting pressure on your stomach. Because of the additional pressure, the stomach acids will begin to go into the esophagus, causing heartburn. Therefore, if you are overweight, losing the excess weight will help alleviate heartburn.

Exercise can also trigger heartburn, so you should exercise wisely. Before working out, eat foods that are higher in carbohydrates, and wait at least 2 hours after eating to exercise.

In addition, probably the most popular cure for heartburn is antacids. They are easy to get and work fast. Tums, Rolaids, Maalox or Pepto Bismol can temporarily help relieve heartburn, but they are not a permanent solution.
