  • Yes! :)
    i promise this works it sounds icky but it works almost instantly.

    my bfs dad is a dr and he told me to try this and i did and ill always do it now for heartburn :)

    Take a shot glass size cup and put some vinegar in it and throw it back and drink it ... it will go away soooo fast.

    it may be gross but it works promise :)D

  • Take a spoonful of baking soda and mix it with a small amount of water. Toss it back and wait for a big burp. I did that and haven't had heartburn in 14 weeks.
