Heartburn / Reflux Info
“Following the Jewish tradition, a dispenser of schmaltz (liquid chicken fat) is kept on the table to give the vampires heartburn if they get through the garlic defense.”
Heartburn, alternatively known as pyrosis, cardialgia, or acid indigestion, is a burning sensation in the chest, just behind the breastbone. The pain often rises in the chest and may move to the neck, throat, or jaw.
Heartburn is usually associated with regurgitation of gastric acid (gastric reflux) which is the major symptom of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD). It may also be a symptom of ischemic heart disease, though this is true for only a small minority of those experiencing heartburn.
Heartburn can be caused by several conditions and a preliminary diagnosis of GERD is based on additional signs and symptoms. The chest pain caused by GERD has a distinct 'burning' sensation, occurs after eating or at night, and worsens when a person lies down or bends over.
It also is common in pregnant women, and may be triggered by consuming food in large quantities, or specific foods containing certain spices, high fat content, or high acid content.
Heartburn or chest pain after eating or drinking and combined with difficulty swallowing may indicate oesophageal spasms.
There are natural health remedies available that may alleviate these symptoms.
Usually a shot glass with a pinch of baking powder does the trick of curbing the stomach and heartburn pain associated with reflux.
Ginger tea and peppermint tea have been known to confer some relief for people suffering from heartburn.
Aloe vera juice, Marshmallow, hoheria, slippery elm powder, liquorice root and bladderwrack are all great natural health remedies.

I work at a school and take this probiotic to keep me healthy. I have had 1 sick day in two years and that was for a cold. I really rate this product, I am healthy and regular and would be lost without it.
After using all the usual effective products to suck , i felt there must be a healthier way. Tried this after evening meals and reflux is soothed or prevented. Love knowing I have it if needed.
