Welcome to Heartburn Remedies and Cures

Heartburn is not a modern illness, as the first written record of heartburn treatment dates back to the first century, but it has become a modern epidemic of the Western world. For example, did you know that in the United States alone,  more than twenty five million adults suffer with heartburn on a daily basis and more than sixty million experience symptoms every month. Recent research also appears to indicate that heartburn/acid reflux is a growing problem.

If you have found your way to my Heartburn Remedies and Cures site, it is likely that you or someone close to you suffers with heartburn or acid reflux as it is also known, and that you are looking for information to:

  • help you better understand heartburn
  • treat the symptoms and
  • prevent it reoccurring in the future

The site helps you understand what heartburn is, why it happens and provides information about over the counter (OTC) heartburn medications and surgical treatments that are available.  It also gives details of the heartburn treatments available in the various branches of alternative and complementary medicine such as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurveda.

It furnishes information about foods which help heartburn and foods which cause heartburn , together with details of practical steps and lifestyle changes that can be taken to help prevent heartburn such as losing weight, stopping smoking or simply just changing sleeping positions.

I hope that you will find the information and resources provided useful and warmly welcome your feedback and comments to improve the site either via the Contact page or using the Comments section at the bottom of each page.

    I think the best way to go is with natural remedies to treat heartburn, like the classic apple cider vinegar remedy. You just need to find one that will work for you, and you’ll be good to go, no prescriptions needed

      Ginger is a great remedy for heaburn. The ginger that you get with sushi takes the burn away almost instantly. Candied ginger works also it just takes a little longer. Either way ginger works really well. GD Star Ratingloading…GD Star Ratingloading…

    Hi Amber,

    There are so many natural remedies that give equal, if not more effective relief from heartburn that it is amazing that they are not more widely used.
