Anyone any good ideas for relieving acute heartburn which can appear after the evening meal which I know I sometimes eat too quickly. The usual chemist remedies seem to upset my system -
Gaviscon and Milk of Magnesia will knock my knee out (cannot figure out this - it seems absurb but it happens every time and then I cannot straighten my knee for a couple of days - it such a nuisance as I am fairly active. Peppermint tea doesnt usually give instant relief - someone said try a teaspoon of cider vinegar in waterbut I haven't tried that yet - all ideas appreciated !!
I don't get it too often but it is violent when it arrives!

well, I would give you the generic/obvious answer of.......don't eat so fast, but you might reach thru the puter and 'slap' me.
I do know for me the vinegar works if I have indigestion. Is this in your throat or by your heart?

I found that eating fruit with dinner and/or at night and/or too much dairy triggered mine.

No - always food combine - just meat or fish plus veggies at night and no fruit.I do admit to drinking coffee (last cup about 4pm) - how long before there is an overload in the body and the results showing as a sore digestion all the way down to the colon - I know I should give it up but it is hard - tried all the alternatives and nothing works as good as that !

Most of us in Crossville use some pineapple to end a meal with which helps to digest food. Larry C taught us that in the first meeting as so many of the new class members did have heartburn and indigestion. I am not sure but I think that is one of the ingredients in Dr. D's Bromelain that is so helpful in digestion. I use fresh if I can but the canned crushed pineapple is great too. Just get the one in its own juice and not the heavy syrup kind. Hope this helps.

I keep a bottle of Acid Soothe, by Enzymedica, which consists of some soothing herbs and digestive enzymes.  I used to be troubled by heartburn a lot, but my BTD took care of it in time, especially since I eliminated gluten.

HERE is the link to the website.  I like the company, and their products actually work well.

Ginger tea?  I don't know if you can have that.  Chammomile? What about some yogurt?

I get the same thing when I take certain supplements. Feels like the knee is coming unjointed and when you bend it it hurts. As soon as I stop the offending supplement, it goes away!  I thought I was the only person that had this problem!

How strange is this Mayflowers - maybe someone will have the answer - I remember when I visited my consultant he did say that I may need a knee replacement in the next two - three years depending on what I put in my mouth which I took to mean keep your weight down but maybe it was something else as well.

Thanks to all for your suggestions which I intend to follow up - especially Victoria's advice

Speedy, When you find out how to put the box arounr the quite let me know also.

I have found that in most Type O's that the eating of Grains other than rice will cause heartburn, Type O's can not digest grain.

I would watch and see after you eat grain if you have the heartburn.

When I do have it and the pineapple don't help I drink a Natural Brew Root Beer.

That's what I'm figuring too. I've already had torn meniscus repair and got DVT from that..so I'm not loving the idea of a knee replacment. I do believe many of these knee replacements can be avoided if people stop eating things that affect their joints (avoids) like with me, rice is worse for my joints than wheat. If I eat rice two days in a row, my knee starts hurting.  As soon as I stop my pain goes away..Dr. D is SO right about how foods affect the body.. But hopefully as I balance out from the Warrior diet, my intolerances will disappear..

Hit the quote button above the persons post that you want to quote, before you type anything in.

just an added note.......type below the quote when it appears.....it will look like this, except things will be closer spaced at the beginning and ends. I just did it like this so you can see what it will look like after you hit the quote button above their post:

[quote = 2879]Hit the quote button above the persons post that you want to quote, before you type anything in.[ / quote]

then you type down here (until you get real comfy w/ doing that, then you can get real creative....put a quote in a quote, use dif color lettering, etc)   Hope this helps instead of confusing you

I realize the thread was about Os with heartburn, but I thought I'd add this for interested As with the same problem:  I only have heartburn when I'm pregnant, but what I found to help is a cup of coffee.  I'd make myself a cup of decaf and within a few minutes of drinking it my heartburn would vanish.

Peppermint tea doesnt usually give instant relief -  


I think peppermint relaxes the sphincter between the stomach and the esophagus and thus could contribute to making reflux worse.

That is weird.  I would think it would do the opposite.

Well, maybe it gave my stomach enough acid to digest whatever was bothering me.

I think it would depend on your BT.  The 1st thing I would notice when I was pregnant was when I drank coffee I would almost immediately feel acidic and have heartburn - yuk!  

To use a Mayflowers expression - me likey coffee but coffee no likey me!
