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.

Product Reviews

  • Great probiotic

    star

    I have tried many probiotics and find this one is the best in a reasonable price range. I take 1 at night with some kefir water (prebiotic) and it really does help. I suffer from IBS and when those symptoms kick in I immediately take 1 or 2 of them and it saves me from some major embarrassment if I have things to do (think bought movie or concert tickets that I would otherwise have had to forego). I definitely recommend using in conjunction with a prebiotic or fermented foods that can prepare the gut to receive / grow the good bacteria.

    This product is amazing as I take a lot of medication, and is very soothing on your digestive system. Would not be without it now!

  • Disappointed

    star

    I expected better results from this product after reading such positive feedback. Unfortunately it didn't do anything for me other than increase my wind, bloating and discomfort. It made me quite constipated Possibly coincidental and nothing to do with this product but I noticed rapid weight gain into the second week of taking it. I guess there's always someone a product doesn't benefit. Can't fault Health Post's great service though:)
