Ingredients: Aciphilus capsules, inexpensive, buy them at a health food store, refrigerated variety is most effective. Cost is about $15 per month. Acidophilus is food, not a drug. It is the naturally occurring culture in yogurt. Instructions: Every day, take a few acidophilus capsules with water, that\'s it! My 80-something mother suffered from gastric reflux all her life. The acidophilus cured her within 30 days, that was 4-5 years ago, no recurrence. Antacids only make your problem worse, the idea is to sell more antacids, huge multimillion dollar business. Acid reflux is caused by a LACK of stomach acid (not excess stomach acid). When we eat food, if we have a lack of stomach acid, then our food is not properly digested, backs up in our GI track, causes pain, belching, etc. Add acidophilus capsules to your system, cures your problem altogether. No side effects because acidophilus is food culture, it is not a drug. It is the same as eating many servings of yogurt.

Ingredients: L-lysine Tablets, Blistex Ointment, water
Instructions: I have suffered with cold sores since I was 10 years old and through trial and error found a CURE for preventing them in the first place. I havent had a break out in over 7 years. You will need: L-lysine tablets which are found in the viatmin Aisle (where you buy vitamin C and E). Try to get 1,000mg each tablets. Also, Blistex medicated ointment in the tube (it is WHITE in color inside the tube) and is sold in a small box near the chapstick at the store. Don\'t buy the little pots of medicated petroleum based Blistex.

When you FIRST start feeling the \"tingle\" of a cold sore coming on, RUSH and take 5,000 mg of L-lysine tablets (within 10 minutes of feeling the first symptoms), immediately apply a thick slathering of the Blistex cream and rub it in deeply - keep applying it every 5-10 minutes for the next 3-4 hrs. Immediately drink 1/2 a gallon of water.

I promise you, within 30 minutes you will feel the tingle go away and will feel the first signs of the L-lysine working to take away the tingle.

NAME: Cary D. Cochran

INSTRUCTIONS: One teaspoon of yellow mustard with about 1/2 glass ofwater stops heartburn instantly for me.One warning about baking soda: I was using baking soda for years. I was using it almost every day. I started having symptoms of sugar diabetes. The doctor put me on medication for sugar diabetes. My blood sugar levels were over 300.

I started wondering if the baking soda was making me sick. I was even brushing my teeth with baking soda. I did some internet research and found an incident where baking soda had caused a condition called hypo-calcimea (I�m not sure how to spell it). This is a dangerous level of alkalinity (high pH). One of the symptoms of hypo-calcimea is pancreatitus (inflamed pancreas). One of the symptoms of pancreatitus is sugar diabetes. As you can see, this is a chain reaction. I was very ill for 4 months. I quit using baking soda entirely and all symptoms went away in one month and now the doctor tells me that I do not have sugar diabetes.

Note: The doctor put me on Avanda for sugar diabetes. Over night my eyesight went from 20-20 to 100-200. It took a month for my eyesight to return after I quit taking Avanda.

Monitor your body after you take any medication. Sometimes the remedy is worse that the problem you are trying to treat.

Ingredients = Gum
Instructions = Oh my gosh! After taking 3 extra strength Tums and not having any relief of my horrible heartburn, I got desperate and looked at this site. I tried the gum because it seemed the least offensive. Within 2 MINUTES my heartburn started to GO AWAY! I chewed my son's Juicy Fruit. I can't believe it, but it works!

Thanks to everyone about the vinegar relief for the heartburn. It burned going down but after that I felt great. I'm writing this email not even 5 min. after I took it. If you like vinegar and have heartburn it is a benefit on both sides :).

Country of Remedy: USA

Ingredients: HONEY, Apple cider vinegar
Instructions: Take a tsp of honey any time you feel acid, whether its from heartburn or reflux. If this doesn't work, have a couple of tsps of ACV every two to three
days should be enough to help your natural stomach acids get the job of digestion done! I had a chronic case of heartburn for about a week, then I took it easy for a couple of days, eating soft, mild foods, and tried this remedy and I got rid of it, after antacidmedications had not worked. Good luck!

It is about 10:00 at night and it is pouring outside. I was suffering from a really miserable heartburn all evening and have NOTHING in the house to take for it. So I went to the internet and looked up "heartburn remedies." That's how I found your site.

The only things I happen to have here that are mentioned in the heartburn remedies section are various vinegars (everything except apple cider vinegar) and yellow mustard. Sceptical, I took a teaspoon of Japanese rice vinegar. It really burned on the way down. My heartburn was INSTANTLY relieved. That was about 10 minutes ago. I'm amazed.

Ingredients: Baking Soda & Warm Water
Instructions: Pour 1 teaspoon of baking soda in a glass. Run water until it is slightly warmer than room temperature. Put in enough water to dissolve baking soda and continue adding water until it is a clear liquid. the warmer the water the better it works but keep in mind you must drink it right away so it shouldn't be too hot. It always gives me instant relief and lasts for days. For a teeth whitening tip brush your teeth afterwards the baking soda residue on your teeth will help whiten them. Cheers!

Country of Remedy: USA

Ingredients: Apple Cider Vinegar
Instructions: I know it sounds wrong, but Vinegar can actually help heartburn, as heartburn is sometimes caused by a LACK of stomach acid.Here's a quote taken from another website:" Often, especially as we age, we have to deal with indigestion or heartburn. Sometimes the treatment is worse the the symptom: Antacids are not always the best remedy. Our stomachs produce less acid over time - and that causes the same symptoms as too much acid. When we medicate with a substance that allows our stomachs to produce even less acid, we're just making the situation worse.Vinegar to the rescue! The acidin vinegar will help digest your food, and over a period of time, alleviate heartburn if yours is caused by a
lack of stomach acid."I tried it out and it seemed to work in about 10 min.

I have seen four MDs over the last 18 months, and been tested from one end to the other for you name

USA indications

Take one teaspoon of mustard if you have heartburn or indigestion. You will immediatelly feel the acid going back in to the stomach. Do not drink anything right after you have taken the mustard. If one teaspoon doesn't do the trick, take another. It surely will. Works better than any prescription or over the counter drug.
