What do you all take for heartburn? My mother uses Tetralac and I'm wondering if it's ok.<br>
Thanks!

My husband used to get really bad heartburn and he would take 1-2 tbls of Apple cider vinegar and he said it worked every time.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy">

Slippery elm tea. I'm sure this thread will probably be moved soon, but does your mother get heartburn all the time? If so, she might want to look into food intolerance and do an elimination diet with a challenge in a couple weeks. Lots of people get heartburn when they eat foods they are intolerant of. GI intolerance is similar to allergies, but involves different antibodies.

I hope not. I really want the advice of the moms in this forum. Everyone here has so much knowledge!

Is her diet simple carbohydrate heavy? That could be the cause. If she cuts out the refined carbs things may improve a whole lot.

I don't think so. She mostly eats whole/traditional foods. Some of the things that trigger it are bananas, raw carrots, nuts and spicy foods.
