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.

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.

Chewing green pine needles stops heart burn alot better than tums.

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 bought a 120 capsule bottle of Nutrition Now Probiotics PB8, and started taking 2 morning and night. Within days my stomach was feeling "normal". more heartburn. I've even tested it, by eating something that would normally have caused a problem and it was not a problem at all! I would recommend giving this a try for heartburn and acid reflux.

Hi everyone, and (CHAD from Rochester) try saltine crackers,sometimes I get heartburn in the middle of the night and I eat about 4 saltine crackers and my heartburn is gone within 5 minutes, my husband also, we never run out of crackers in this house and another item that works for my husband is the pickle juice. the doctor prescribed medicine for my husband for his heartburn years ago and they did not work, so I started him on crackers, he believes me now. Try the crackers Chad.

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.
