Heartburn Natural Home Remedies
Slippery Elm for Heartburn
Over the course of living with GERD I found only one herbal treatment which is very effective.
Slippery Elm. I mostly use it in the form of the
powder and make a tea out of it. Tea isn't very tasty but it covers stomach and esophagus with gel like liquid
which protects them from acid. Usually one cup of tea is good enough to have zero heartburn through the night and
in the morning.
Incliner Sleep Wedge is an innovative sleep solution. It was scientifically designed just to help acid reflux sufferers. It relieves acid reflux by elevating your head, shoulders and upper body as doctors recommend. It helps you to sleep in a natural position for controlling heartburn, respiratory problems and digestion ailments.
An alternative to sleep wedge pillow is Mattress Genie™
Cottage and Farmer cheese for Heartburn
This was one of the best heartburn relieving foods for me. Since it is milk based - it is alkaline with lots of calcium and naturally reduces acid in your stomach. And it is not liquid as milk but solid which causes it to absorb acid much better and not allow it to get to your esophagus.
Cottage cheese could be easily found in your local grocery store (pick organic - it usually tastes better). Farmer cheese is not that easy to find - but you can look for it in Russian or Eastern European stores and local farms.
Heartburn and healing mineral water
Karlovy Vary is one of the oldest and largest health spas in Europe. It was founded in the year 1358 by the then emperor Charles IV and it was under his rule that Karlovy Vary had flourished. Situated at the confluence of the two rivers, Tepla and Ohe, in the Zapadoeske region of Western Bohemia, Karlovy Vary's hot medicinal mineral water spring is famous in the world for its very effective curing value of stomach ailments. The mineral water is one of the hottest in the world with temperatures ranging from 42°C to 72°C. A large number of tourists visit this place every year.
I spent 3 weeks in Karlovy Vary and it was the most relaxing experience I ever had in my life. They offer excellent inexpensive Spa services (inexpensive means 3-4 times cheaper than in US) and great light diets for your stomach. They will offer a free doctor consultation several times through your trip to give you advices on how to improve your lifestyle to get your health under control. If you like Germany you may consider Baden-Baden resorts which provides about the same experience but in German environment and for considerably more money.
