I Didn't Know That - Heartburn

For years we have listened to our parents, grandparents and friends as they give us remedies using items we normally keep in our kitchen to solve many of our annoying problems such as heartburn.  I've been told all my life to drink milk when I have heartburn.  And all my life I've drank milk with no relief.  Guess what.  That is the wrong thing to do.  Check out this remedy.

Heartburn Remedy—Best
Beat the burn with apple cider vinegar. It may seem counter-intuitive, but if we have too little acid in the stomach, the food digests too slowly, according to Kathy Gruver, PhD, LMT, and Reiki Master. “It sits in the stomach. Then we lay down to go to sleep or bend over, and the food gets burped up. By adding acid in the form of vinegar, we can help the digestive process,” she said.

Heartburn Remedy—Worst

While drinking milk soothes the stomach and temporarily combats heartburn, milk fat may actually stimulate acid production and cause a rebound effect later, according to the University of Nevada School of Medicine.
