  • Aloe Juice! Seriously! It is simply amazing! I suffered...and I mean suffered...for years! then I found aloe juice....within 20 minutes pain was gone! It is even sold at good ole the pharmacy area. It tastes a lil bit bitter but not horrible. It is worth every single dime! We keep it in the seems to go down better cold. Just about a 1/4 cup is all ya need.

  • I have had it bad through my whole pregnancy i cant drink anything other than water or milk or it starts up agian. I just always have a glass of milk and it does wonders Also if its bad at night dont lay down within an hour after eating because you need time for your food to digest. That should help also. Hope things get better for you. Good luck
