People often have heartburn (a burning sensation deep in the chest) along with indigestion. Stomach acids rising into the esophagus cause heartburn.
Heartburn, associated with stress and spicy foods, can be very painful. Prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs may relieve the symptoms temporarily, but they in turn create more acid in the body, which then becomes a vicious cycle.
An immediate remedy is to mix a half-teaspoon of cream of tartar with a half-teaspoon of baking soda. Blend into in a warm or lukewarm cup of water and sip slowly if taken when there is food in the stomach, because gas will be released as the acid is neutralized and can cause bloating pain if taken too quickly. Relief should occur within minutes of drinking the solution.
In the event that cream of tartar is not available, drink 1 tsp. of baking soda in a glass of warm water.
ShopFreeMart Pure Mag Concentrate, D-Cal Boron, and Immunize support healthy digestion and can therefore help prevent acidity and heartburn. If problems persist, a digestive enzyme from the health food store should be taken with meals.
