I see everyone saying Mustard, but does this mean like Yellow mustard? Brown Mustard? as in condiments? or like Mustard seed powder? Please clarify
Thanks

[YEA]   "yes, plain old yellow mustard. I was at my brothers earlier this evening, and I asked him if he had any tums, and he said no, but try a half teaspoon of mustard. I did and within ten minutes, my heartburn was gone. I cant beleive it. Been having a lot of heartburn lately, no more tums. im sticking with the mustard.

Hi Chris, you may like to try slippery elm bark to treat your heartburn. The mustard is effective, however it is only for symptomatic relief. Slippery Elm Bark is well-recognised as an effective treatment for simple reflux (Heartburn). You can continue to use the mustard for symtomatic relief as required but I think you will find that you need it less and less. Good Luck

[YEA]  Mustard, regular prepared mustard that goes on a hotdog or sandwich quickly and completely cured intolerable acid reflux and heartburn. My husband told me to try it, so I swallowed a good tablespoon each time the reflux and heartburn came for a few days. It has been well over 6 years since and' I have never had acid reflux or hearburn again. Mustard works amazingly.

[YEA]  A teaspoon or two, or packet of mustard cures Heartburn. Burns like hell for a minute, but works wonders. Do not drink or eat anything for about 10 minutes or so. Zantac costs too much, chewable antacids give me a dry mouth, so I was turned on to trying mustard by a friend of mine. I don't know how it works, but it does.

Mustard, Pickle Juice   1  0

[YEA]  I almost never have heartburn but had a terrible episode last night. Decided to check Earth Clinic for ideas and the mustard seemed like something I could keep down. The heartburn was so bad I thought I was going to start throwing up, so had to be careful what I ingested. Didn't think I could handle undiluted ACV, as many people apparently have used with success. I used about a teaspoon of mustard. No problem getting it down. As I was putting the mustard away I saw the pickle jar so thought I try that, too. I downed about a shot glass full of pickle juice. I guess the pickle juice and mustard work because they're made with vinegar, but far tastier than straight ACV. By the time I walked to my bedroom to go to sleep the heartburn was gone!

Orange Peel Extract   1  0   

Posted by Joe (Hesston, KS) on 08/16/2013

[YEA]  For Heartburn I use softgel orange peel extract oil, 1000 mg. 1 every other day for 20 days then as needed. I still eat spicey foods. My nephew had Heartburn & hemorrhoids. It fixed both for him. It works for Varicose veins also.

Papaya Enzymes   1  0   

Posted by Trav (Rice Lake, WI) on 08/06/2007

[YEA]  I tried papaya enzyme for heartburn and it works. I wouldn't make a habit of eating it all the time though. Maybe you can take a different heartburn remedy at a time.

Pickle Juice   2  0   

Posted by Mimi (Louisburg, Ks) on 02/08/2010

[YEA]  Thank you so much. I very rarely get heartburn but when I do it hurts so bad I could cry. I found your site and tried the teaspoon of mustard which subsided the pain for a few minutes. I then read about the pickle juice and the crackers. I tried them both and my heartburn is almost gone. Thank you so much. I had already taken a generic antacid tablet and 4 antacids to no avail. I will now first go to the pickle juice and crackers to help my heartburn. I am going to bed now without pain. Night Night.

[YEA]  So, every once in a while, I get some bad heartburn. My diet was horrible, Wendies and McDonalds because its cheap. I have since started eating better and cut back on the caffeine and that has been what has cured the heartburn. I even eat spicy foods with no problem. Before, though, when I did get the heartburn so badly that I couldn't sleep, I told my dad about it and he suggested pickle juice. My friends scoff, but it really does the trick. We always have pickles in the fridge so I tried it. Never fails. Everytime I get heartburn, I use it and it works everytime. Milk doesn't work or water. sometimes bread does the trick but fills you up and then its back with in an hour or so. Just a couple of swallows of pickle juice and its gone. I promise.

PLEASE remember that if there are pine trees in your yard and you choose to eat the needles for heartburn, WASH them. Pesticides and general residual debris could be a lot worse than heartburn!

I have been taking PPO's for acid reflux for ten of the past 12 years. I got off of them almost two years ago and changed my diet and took many different supplements under the advice of two different Dr's (Naturalist). I am still fighting the heartburn and bloating. My morning Urine PH goes from 5 to 6. My white blood cells are a little out of whack. My cholesterol went from 225 to 275 while under the two Dr's. (Coconut oil was highly prescribed by one). I can not hardly drink anything while eating or shortly after without heartburn. My diet is mostly whole foods, some sugar and meats. Trying to cut out all sugar but it's hard. Currently taking a Liver detox supplement and a ParaShield Supplement, a 40 Million Probiotic daily and a 5000 iu vit D supplement. Any suggestions for the issues I mentioned?

Baking Soda in water should be able knock out the heartburn. Use as much as needed. I had heart burn for decades and it has vurtually disappear4e3d once I started doing that. To me, bloating is essentially gas. long term bloating is an indication that you have brewing bacteria in your stomach that is out of control.

For quick short term relief, you can bend at waste while sitting to push the gas out.

When I was in early stages of developing diverticulitis, I had long term gas problem. I ignored it. I thought it was something everyone got and should not be concerned about.

When I realized I had diverticulitis, I used AMP Aloe Muciliginous Polysaccharide capsules. It is a natural antibiotic. It resolved the problem. You may not necessarily need AMP but something to bring down the culprit bacteria. Maybe Baking Soda will address this also.

I think stuff you're doing now is also good. I think you it is good to come at problem from different angles. The heartburn is the higher priority to address given the burning it causes.

Hi Dave, Cut out all starches & sugars which will stop the bloating & do not eat when you are upset, also take the following supplements to help with digestion:-Betaine HCL & digestive enzymes.

On my large bag of BS, for indigestion, it cautioned to measure exactly: 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda to 1/2 Cup water.

As I have scored so often from this site, perhaps this info may be useful:-

I used to suffer from heartburn, now known as reflux. I had a serious attack on the golf course and my partner advised me to do as my anscestors did, drink water from my hand, bend over the greenkeepers tap and drink from the hand and gulp as much air as I could. When I stood up, I let out one hell of a burp. That was the end of paying for cures! When you drink water, drink as your mother would never let you, drink like pig, gulp as much air as needed.
