I've been taking little bites of tums, for quite a while. I got off prilosec, and tagamet...because I thought it was making me worse. How do you get the stomach down, and strengthen the diaphragm and cardiac sphincter ? Deep breathing ? I do some of that....but probably not enough.
I think this stressed feeling is causing more acid production, so what in the world do you do about that ? The burning pain then probably is causing me some anxiety.
I eat a bland diet.
I tried apple cider vinegar, but it seems to cause burning. I think that I read at Mayo clinic, that it causes heartburn for some people. I tried honey, too....which helped a little.
Drink plenty of water ! There are so many natural remedies out there. DGL seems to be reccomended a lot, but I can't find it here where I live. Chamomile, and Ginger teas. From what I read, eating more alkaline foods help...and I was already doing a lot of that.
