If it's REALLY bad, really, skip the OTC stuff and go straight for baking soda. There is a reason why other things were invented, it tastes AWFUL, but it really works better than anything else I've ever tried. Just a TBSP in half a cup of warm water, slug it down and it works instantly.
You can google sodium bicarbonate and acidosis for a lot of interesting info about the use of soda in health care.
I'm going through the same exact thing with the whole choking at night. And I *am* taking Zantac.
Last night, I spent the night in my recliner. While it completely eliminated any acid issues, I still didn't get much sleep because I only like to sleep flat!
I'm ready to go the prescription route... if any of my mws ever bother to get back to me.
raw milk if you can get it
We buy organic pastures
a few sips and the heartburn is gone for me no matter how bad
I actually just got back from a 40 min trip to go buy some because we ran out today and of course as soon as we run out the HB sets in BAD
I made cup of traditional medicinal heartburn tea and put about 1/2 cup of raw milk in and some honey and now im all better.
its more the milk than the tea, i just saw the tea tonight when buying the milk and decided to try it... it was ok but wouldnt take care of the hb on its own i dont think
