  • Try not eating meat, your body goes through hell digesting it.

  • Sometimes meat takes weeks to digest, and it rots in your stomach. Try drinking fluids for a day, juices and lots of any other liquid like soup, flush whatever is ailing you out. I also know for a fact that basil is really good for the stomach make a tea with it and drink it.

  • If it is an OTC medication you want for short-term and fast relief, then get something like Mylanta, Maalox or Tums (chewables or liquid makes no difference). If you long-term relief for more frequesnt heartburn symptoms, then something like Zantac, Pepcid AC or Prilosec is better.

    To avoid future heartburn episodes, limit your intake of acidic & hard to digest foods like alcohol, citrus, sodas, sugary sweets and meats. Also avoid overeating, lying down soon after eating and being overweight.

    Hope you feel better soon!
