Water...a cure for heartburn?

| 2

6. Eating a banana each day works like an antacid to soothe heartburn. If you're already stricken with indigestion, eating pineapple or papaya (or drinking the juice) can help settle your stomach naturally. Some people also claim that eating a teaspoon of mustard (yuck!) can work immediately.

7. Avoid eating at least two hours before you go to sleep. Those late night snacks can keep your stomach busy all night and prevent you from easing into a deep, restful sleep. You may also find that sleeping on your left side or sleeping at a somewhat upright angle can keep acid down where it belongs.

Also avoid these heartburn triggers:

  • Overeating
  • Garlic, onion, and shallots
  • Acidic foods (tomatoes, orange juice, etc)
  • Clothing that is too tight around the waist

Stress can increase heart burn so whenever you are feeling anxious or upset try and stay positive and take a few moments out of your day to just relax your mind. Find a quiet place and while closing your eyes concentrate on relaxing each part of the body, beginning with your toes and ending with your head. You can imagine all the stress or pain leaving the muscles up the body and leaving through the top of the head. Practicing these relaxation techniques before bedtime may also help you sleep better.

If you are awakened by heartburn on a regular basis, or the pain is severe, or if you have heartburn with vomiting, you'll want to consult your doctor immediately as it may be a sign of a more serious condition such as an ulcer. Above all, avoid spicy, fatty and caffeine-containing foods before bed, and you should be able to drift off to sleep easily.
