Heartburn Natural Remedy - 5 Steps to a No Pill Cure

By: Gilbey Scott

Taking something as natural as baking soda in a glass of water is an age old heartburn remedy. And except for those on a low salt regime it's a safe and natural remedy for heartburn acid. There are many remedies right in front of your nose. Let's examine a few of these.

Let's talk about one some ways to reduce heartburn that don't involve taking anything. It's about making your stomach happy. Follow these steps and your tummy may be happy enough to let you eat anything you want. Or at least a little more tolerant.

Here are some helpful pointers that don't require taking anything:

1. Your stomach doesn't like to be overfilled. It has to work too hard to process the food. It has to stretch out of shape and generate too much stomach acid to get the job done. It also helps to get the job done quickly. Not eaten quickly but digested quickly.

2. Your stomach doesn't like meals that are too acidic or have too much dense material. You can help out by adding more fruits and vegetables. These are alkaline and help balance the acid level. Fruits and vegetables digest faster and move on down the line. Meat stays around forever. So rather than letting your taste buds lead, follow your common sense.

3. Your stomach likes to be vertical while digesting food - no slouching or reclining, please. It's got a funny shape and when it tips over, something is likely to spill out - ouch! Naps after a big meal are a good way for this to happen.

4. It also helps if the stomach is not crowded. It deserves a certain amount of space. Being overweight crowds the working area. Imagine trying to work in a crowded elevator. Add weight loss to your heartburn to-do list. Even a few pounds can make a difference.

5. Higher metabolism boosts the digestion. Start now, after your evening meal take a leisurely stroll around the block. Better yet consider adding a brisk 20-minute walk 5 times a week. A habit like this will improve digestion.

If this seems like a lot, consider breaking it down into individual tasks by organizing it on paper. Make a to-do list and a timetable. And at the end of the page state your goals. Also include a reward - every success story deserves a reward. Ridding yourself of heartburn definitely deserves one.

So who says you can't have heartburn relief? Keep these steps in mind and you should be able to put together a heartburn chronicle that works for you. These five steps are a good place to start on a natural cure that comes with some very positive side effects. Better posture and healthier heart, just to name a few.

Keep in mind that remedies like baking soda can be very good at bringing about heartburn relief. As I said before, except for those on a low salt regime it's a safe and natural remedy, but keep in mind that it is not a cure for heartburn and should only be used occasionally. The good news is by following the steps above there should be less need for natural remedies.

With these healthy ideas you can get started before heartburn acid causes any damage. So start at once to identify the heartburn symptoms that relate and go to work on a cure. Having put together a personal cure will enable you to look back and say, "I feel great, I took care of that." Having that feeling of accomplishment is a big part of success.
