Heartburn / Reflux Info

“Following the Jewish tradition, a dispenser of schmaltz (liquid chicken fat) is kept on the table to give the vampires heartburn if they get through the garlic defense.”

Calvin Trillin

Heartburn, alternatively known as pyrosis, cardialgia, or acid indigestion, is a burning sensation in the chest, just behind the breastbone. The pain often rises in the chest and may move to the neck, throat, or jaw.

Heartburn is usually associated with regurgitation of gastric acid (gastric reflux) which is the major symptom of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD). It may also be a symptom of ischemic heart disease, though this is true for only a small minority of those experiencing heartburn.

Heartburn can be caused by several conditions and a preliminary diagnosis of GERD is based on additional signs and symptoms. The chest pain caused by GERD has a distinct 'burning' sensation, occurs after eating or at night, and worsens when a person lies down or bends over.

It also is common in pregnant women, and may be triggered by consuming food in large quantities, or specific foods containing certain spices, high fat content, or high acid content.

Heartburn or chest pain after eating or drinking and combined with difficulty swallowing may indicate oesophageal spasms.

There are natural health remedies available that may alleviate these symptoms.

Usually a shot glass with a pinch of baking powder does the trick of curbing the stomach and heartburn pain associated with reflux.

Ginger tea and peppermint tea have been known to confer some relief for people suffering from heartburn.

Aloe vera juice, Marshmallow, hoheria, slippery elm powder, liquorice root and bladderwrack are all great natural health remedies.

  • helped anxiety and depression.

    star

    Suffered anxiety and depression because of tummy issues to do with ibs, read on here that it helped a customer with anxiety...which persuaded me to try it out. My depression has lessened and also my anxiety. I was quite impressed. It also helped with the nausea and feeling ill when waking up. I took 40mls in the morning on empty stomach and 40mils at night on an empty stomach....alongside advanced probiotics. I really love this product and have already ordered some for my mum. It's been a lifesaver for me. Awesome product...you have to give it a go....I am almost at end of my first bottle and already put in an order for another....

  • A very good product

    star

    I have been taking Acid Soothe for a while now, just one per day,and combined with a probiotic I keep the symptoms of acid reflux and IBS at bay.
    I used to take the medication Pantoprazole but find I can manage very well without it now. I do understand it may not work as well for everyone but it certainly works for me.
