There are many natural remedies for heartburn. Generally, they include adopting healthy eating habits (fewer carbohydrates and greasy foods, smaller portions, carefully chewing every bite, etc.), avoiding fizzy drinks and alcohol, sleeping with the upper body in a slightly elevated position and more.
Avoiding gastrointestinal reflux and thus preventing heartburn requires changing your eating habits and adopting a more active lifestyle. This way, you’ll improve your gut health, causing less pressure on the abdomen. By avoiding fizzy drinks, alcohol, and in some cases even coffee, you will also prevent the LES from relaxing too much. Make sure to stand straight and wear loose clothing to avoid applying pressure on the abdominal area. You can also use baking soda to neutralise the acid and calm down the food pipe, while chewing gum helps too! And to be sure that the acid can’t go up from the stomach, you might benefit from elevating the upper part of your bed slightly.
