Throw away the Tums and Get Rid Of Heartburn Instantly With This Natural Remedy. A simple 3 ingredient DIY natural remedy alternative that really works. This post is intended to treat the occasional heartburn in adults.
How To Get Rid Of Heartburn Instantly
Heartburn can occur when you have a meal too close to your bedtime, when you eat too many fatty foods, or when you drink too many caffeinated or carbonated beverages. It feels like a burning sensation after eating that really sucks. Have you experience that sour or bitter-tasting acid backing up into your throat or mouth? It is definitely not a pleasant feeling at all.
When I was in my 20s, I could just eat anything without problems. Now that I am 40, I really need to be careful with the food I eat, or I will get terrible heartburn. It is such an uncomfortable sensation in my stomach. I feel full, bloated, and without energy. But thankfully, I found a simple home remedy solution that gives me instant relief. A natural antacid I can make at home with just 3 ingredients.
The other day I was having really bad heartburn right after I went out for dinner and had fatty foods. Fried foods make me feel really bad. After I ate dinner that night, I instantly knew I was going to pay the consequences. I really do not like to take any medications, so I looked for a natural alternative. And after searching for the answer, I found a simple, healthy, and wonderful recipe that gave me relief instantly.
I only needed baking soda, lemon juice and honey. Yes, that is all I needed to feel better! Ingredients that were already in my kitchen and that I could take without any unwanted side effects. A completely natural and harmless way to get the relief I needed. Goodbye Tums!
3 Ingredient DIY Natural Tums
Let’s talk a little bit about these 3 ingredients and why they are so effective at relieving the uncomfortable heartburn symptoms. I always like to be informed and learn about natural remedies because I really believe in the healing power of mother nature.
Honey is a natural anti bacterial and promotes proper digestion. Honey also contains potassium, which neutralizes stomach acids. Make sure to buy a good quality real raw honey. Find out more about the benefits of raw honey HERE.
Lemons also help neutralize acidity in the stomach. Although lemon juice is very acidic, it can have an alkalizing effect when it’s mixed with water. Make sure you just add a few drops.
Baking soda also neutralizes stomach acids and prevents acid reflux. Baking soda, AKA sodium bicarbonate, is a natural antacid. If you drink 1/2 a teaspoon of baking soda dissolved in 8 ounces of water, it can neutralize stomach acid and temporarily alleviate heartburn.
The combination was just perfect. I could really feel relief instantly. Give it a try next time you experience heartburn and let me know if it works for you too. Remember this natural remedy is not recommended for children.
