Common Questions and Answers about Heartburn natural remedies baking soda

heartburn

Im 32weeks today and suffering extreme heartburn anyone know any remedies????
Tums are fine or ginger capsules, but you have to be careful because if you get really bad heartburn or acid reflux, tums or baking soda will only create more acid. I was told to try to stay away from Zantac during pregnancy, and to only take it if it gets really bad. I get acid reflux with this pregnancy and just the other day someone suggested I try drinking some grapefruit juice (or pineapple) at the onset of it, and wow, it actually worked and kept it away for a few hours!
I'm really weird about taking any medicine unless it's reallllly needed, but I'm starting to think it might be! Any natural remedies first? And if that doesn't work, safe OTC products to relieve it once in a while? And don't get me wrong, I'm NOT complaining, it's almost the only symptom I have, but it's starting to make me not want to eat because I know it's going to hurt after!
The only thing baking soda and Prilosec have in common is they both have been used for indigestion or GERD related discomfort, they chemically work different in the stomach. Unfortunately the nurse misinformed you. Are you a Chemist? I don't need to google it, as I could write a book on GERD. It is not hard to understand the technical explanation of the differences in my last post. Also have old prescription info from all of the above previously stated.
I have had anxiety that seemed associated with heartburn too. I treated the heartburn with 1/2 tsp of baking soda in 1/2 glass warm water,(it will cause you to burp because it is neutralizing the acid) and the anxiety seemed to lessen.
Has anyone been able to use just natural remedies for treating heartburn when it's related to an autoimmune disease like Scleroderma? I have to use Nexium supposedly for the rest of my life and I'm concerned about the long term side effects. Along with the meds, I still use all the guidelines for treating GERD, but I just can't get any relief when I use only the natural alternatives.
I am not a doctor, but believe strongly in natural remedies. I'm sure you've tried several already... but did you try Sepia? Sepia is recommended for all types of female problems including endometriosis. I don't know if it will help you, but it's worth a try. I hope this info helps you....
in about 1 cup to 3/4 cup of lemonade add 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon baking soda ... stir ...it will fizz up...drink after the fizzing stops :) (this has saved my fanny from some hectic heartburn nights!) Best of luck to you sweetheart...
The ACV nutralizes that and the PH levels drop back to a normal 7ish You can get somewhat better on ACV - and some baking soda drinks - but the real issue is your Free T3
1 teaspoon baking soda = 1260 mg sodium Table salt has: 1 teaspoon table salt = 2325 mg sodium So, for every teaspoon of the bicarbonate of soda you take in you're getting almost 55% of the sodium you would be getting in a teaspoon of salt. You're basically salt-loading, which is why it will have the effect on blood pressure (as you said by retaining water).
I also suffer from a burning tongue. I did not always have this condition. I use to eat very hot and spicy foods. The hotter the better. All of a sudden my tongue burned really bad after eating something hot. I thought I had burnt my tongue. This condition never went away. Now, I cannot eat anything that is even mild. Ketchup even burns my tongue. My tongue does not look smooth. It looks like I have cuts all across my tongue all the time.
365 cancer loves acid so if you do use OJ you need to offset it with a simple glass of water with 1-2 teaspoons of pure baking soda. I have kept hep c levels in normal range for 15 years and drink 12 beers everyday. Learn from those that have cured themselves not those that are searching or think they are a med pro. This includes drs! most of them tend to know the least. There are good ones again you have to determine the facts and statistics for yourself.
Also you can consume Miso or soy bean paste, basically the same thing. It has friendly bacteria. Also at night you can get a teaspoon of baking soda with water if you don't like the taste get some blackstrap or fancy molasses and add a teaspoon. This is best before you go to sleep because it's suppose to be taken on an empty stomache it helps to nutrual ize the stomache gas. Molasses also seems to work for me but honey makes me worse even the organic honey.
After reading everyone's posts, the only thing I can think of is that I started using my girlfriend's toothpaste, which is one of those baking soda w/peroxide kinds (that taste a little salty). I'll stop using that toothpaste and see if it makes a difference. Oh also, while I don't feel that stressed, I'm getting married in a few weeks, so there is that life change coming up!
The doc thought it was due to GERD (even though I hadn't had frequent heartburn) and gave me prilosec. After using it for 2 weeks, my symptoms hadn't improved, so I had blood tests and stool tests done; the blood tests showed elevated bilirubin but otherwise normal (doc thought it was Gilbert's), and stool was normal. Then I got referred to a gastroenterologist. Took Aciphex for 2 weeks, also with no effect on the belching.
I hav Reflux also, and usually can drink a soda and be able to burp. I am a pain patient also, and notice that when I am put on Lortabs, the first one or two always triggers this problem. Sometimes llaying on your back on the floor and rolling from side to side with move the gas and allow you to pass it. I have many friends with same problem, stress doesn't help nor as I said anxiety. Hope this helps everyone.
The air coming from it is much cooler already and its easier to breathe through my nose. Maybe im on to something. I'm going to mix another saline solution with salt n baking soda and experiment with certain remedies until my oppointment.
But I also assume the mucous lining the throat is natural in order to aid swallowing and prevent food from actually getting stuck and choking you.
, try baking soda in water ( disolve completely first!), licorice, dgl, cumin powder, fennel etc. If your really backed up you may need to flush your system and colon out. I like using epsom salt in water. Make sure your not on any meds that might not be good combination. Try 2 or 3 teaspons in glass of water then repeat several hours later. Drink plenty of water in between.
When you have eye sight you would not be changing your lifestyle, you just wear glasses better still wear contact lenses or an eye surgery. However there are alternative cures like yoga, natural therapy, eye exercises , vitamins etc.. which may be beneficial and might one fine day correct the problem. " What makes this problem similar to Flatulance is simple. We are looking for a remedy/fix/workaround that brings life back to normal not necessarily fixing the root of the problem.
The Doc told me to have her only eat natural non processed foods. For one week she only ate natural and drank water, juice, milk. Then, I started to research allergies with these symptoms and caffeine allergy/sensitivity came up. I decided to do a test. I let her drink a caffeinated soda but told her that it was decaffeinated (in case it was mental). What do you know within ten minutes she told me it was happening again! I have NO doubt she is allergic to caffeine! Now, she is caffeine free.

I prefer natural remedies personally but I will do whatever for them to go away for good. Has anyone had relief from doing a Total Detoxification program at all? A remember reading a gentleman's log and he had gone to India for AYURVEDA treatment.. i can't seem to find his log anymore though. He left a website http://www.ayurveda.org/ I would appreciate any help or information that anyone can give me. I know how you all feel out there! It's not fun. Best of Luck everyone. Thanks again.
They also peel, look dry and cracked, and since this started, make me look much older I have gotten a salve from my dermotologist, which helps somewhat. (She said I am allergic to most toothpaste and I now use Toms which is a natural toothpaste - it has helped to some degree) I am constantly applying lip balm or chap stick, but nothing seems to help the problem entirely. My eyelids itch, are red and also get dry and flakey.
I've started and restarted this message SEVERAL times and I will try to spare the life story or justification/rationalzation for my usage of prescription drugs. I am in hour 74 of withdrawal and it has been AWFUL. I will never give back these days, NEVER. Withdrawal, to me, is a POWERFUL deterrant to ever using again. I have everything to live for, I'm retired, I have money, and I am not going to be a slave to anything, religion, financial problems or PILLS!

I do notice the Allegra does help with the itching a little. Does anyone have any other remedies? I have yet to take a allergy test though because I was told by the allergist the medicine needs to be out of my system for a week and i need to be hive-free. Well how can this happen when i have them everyday!? I give up. This is really horrible. Then they say try to decrease your stress levels. Well how can I do this when the itching causes me so much stress and anxiety.
