Just doing a simple search online, one is able to find hundreds of heartburn remedies. The question then becomes which heartburn home remedy will actually work. This will be the subject of this article and also the larger subject of this page. I hope that the information contained is bother interesting and entertaining.
One of the most common remedies found online for heartburn is the simple act of chewing gum. This may seem pretty silly and myself was wondering how can this actually work in a case of severe heartburn so I decided to look for reviews to see what other people are saying about this simple, inexpensive heartburn home remedy.
There has been medical research that found that chewing sugar free gum for 30 minutes after a meal helps to eliminate symptoms of GERD. But, what are others saying about whether or not gum chewing is an actual viable option. When researching reviews I found that this remedy is a tossup. About 50 percent say it works and 50 percent say it doesn’t. With this being the case, I do not see it as a viable option for most, but by all means it’s worth a try. There is nothing to lose really.
Many old wives tales state that baking soda is a good option for relieving heartburn. This option can sometimes be effective because baking soda is a base and it does help to neutralize the acidic properties. This is another option worth giving a try. Simply mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda with 1 glass of water after each meal to see if this is a good natural heartburn remedy.
These are just two of the many options to relieve heartburn at home. With a little time and research you will eventually find an option that relieves this heartburn without use of medication.
