Looking for natural advice to help with my reflux. I did not have any problem pre-pregnancy.
Thanks a lot!!!
Milk or anything with calcium helps. Chewing gum apparently triggers the esophagus to close, thus reducing heartburn as well. And if you have trouble at night, sleeping elevated can help. These are all pretty common remedies though, so you probably have already tried them.

My midwife also recommended papaya enzymes to me. I don't like papaya but you can buy it in pill form at a health food store.

I've also been told only to eat small meals at night and nothing for a few hours before bed. Papaya enzymes help a bit. Slippery elm lozenges also help. Chewing raw almonds, eating a few spoonfuls of plain yogurt or cream.
