This is a good tip, Connidee. I'm so glad that you have found a remedy that works for you! But I would like to add an important note about ACV (apple cider vinegar.) For some people taking a tablespoon or two each day in warm water has a wonderful healing effect on heartburn. For others, it can cause a horrific flare-up. If you haven't tried the ACV, please start with a small amount. If it has a positive effect, try slowly increasing the amount. If it burns, try a different home remedy.

Also beware that tooth enamel erosion has been linked to long term ACV use, so to be on the safe side you can follow-up by rinsing your mouth out with baking soda and water to nuetralize the acid in your mouth. Good luck!

I will soon be adding an article on home remedies to my site. Please visit and get some great tips!

I have heartburn on and off. The other night I had it, and suddenly craved milk. I'm not a big milk drinker, but I got myself a little glass and was surprised that it totally made my heartburn go away?

Hmmmmm.

Hi Deanna,

Like ACV, milk can have a soothing effect, or the opposite, depending on the person.

Small amounts of milk can act as an antacid, nuetralizing stomach acid. My motto is "always trust your gut," and yours told you that milk would do the trick for you. Good for you for listening! smile

Deanna -

The reason Bailey's Irish Cream was developed is that people in England would mix milk and whiskey to soothe their stomach, the combination would coat the tummy and make it feel better. Bailey's found a way to get that combination to "stay mixed" which is their secret. Usually it would separate out when you store it. So if I get a stomach ache I'll have some Bailey's and it really does feel better.

Thank you Lisa, that would make perfect sense! Since alcohol can relax the LES the perfect way to counter it would be with the soothing affects of the cream. So if you already have a tummy ache, your Bailey's is "killing two birds with one stone."

(For me, I like a good White Russian! smile )

Heartburn is very annoying. I noted that I can get it after a large meal.
