On the Heartburn Remedies ep. of Food Detectives, what was the best remedy?

Posted by admin

Saw the ep. but can’t remember what they said the best remedy was. Am at home with a little heartburn and would rather use a home remedy than go out to the store at 4 am in the snow!

milk, crackers, bread. i find the crackers and bread last a bit longer then the milk.

I am really desperate for a heartburn remedy!! How can I change my diet and help it go away?

So I’m sick of taking tums in mass quantities all the time. I know my heartburn usually comes from drinking too much coffee, and sometimes I am more successful at restraining myself.

I don’t like taking medications like Zantac or Pepcid…I am looking for a soothing drink that would help my throat/chest.

Also, what foods should I definitely avoid to reduce acid reflux?

Hello. If you know your heartburn comes from drinking to much coffee, and you can’t control yourself,, maybe you should try switching to decaf. My grandmother used to take 1 tsp of baking soda and put it in about a half a glass of water, and she swore by it. She had a hyadal hernia and she had AR really bad. And it tastes about like an Alka Seltzer. Some things that may sooth your stomach are, pineapple, banana’s, and believe it or not a tbsp of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water with a tbsp of honey. And if I were you, I would go to the doctor and talk to him about this. I don’t mean to scare you, but when I was in my 30’s I had heart burn and acid reflux all the time. I had a massive heart attack when I was 37. And my doctors told me that heart burn is a warning sign. So just to be on the safe side,, why don’t you make an appt to go see your doctor and ask him about this. It won’t hurt and could very well save your life. Don’t take any chances. Please go get checked out. My prayers will be with you. I hope this helped.

Does anyone have a good heartburn remedy?

My sister-in-law is pregnant. She has horrible heartburn. She has tried TUMS and all of the other medications that she can take while pregnant. Anyone have any home remedies that are safe to use during pregnacy?

Blanched almonds! They are good for you and they really do stop the heartburn! When I was pregnant (many years ago) I kept a package next to my bed and in my purse at all times. I ate a hand full anytime I had heartburn – day or night. Maybe someone else who reads this can explain why it works – all I know is it does. :}
