13. Drink Ginger Chamomile Tea

Firstly, ginger is a known superior digestive aid. This is because it reduces inflammation and gastric irritation. Phytochemicals in ginger are anti-spasmodic, reducing gastric contractions that can push stomach acid upward into the esophagus.

On the other hand, chamomile is gentle, soothing, and relaxing. It also eases nausea, stomach pain, and acid reflux. Because it is a relaxant, use chamomile only if for food or stress-related heartburn. (15)


For best results, place 1/2 tablespoon each of fresh ginger and dried chamomile flowers into a tea strainer. Then cover with boiling water and steep covered 10-15 minutes. Sweeten with a teaspoon of raw honey and enjoy.

14. Take a Spoonful of Mustard

Sounds a little odd, we know. Mustard seeds, tiny as they may be, are packed with nutrients. In fact, mustard can cure heartburn in minutes by counteracting acid in the esophagus and stomach. Believe or not, one teaspoonful of organic yellow mustard slowly swallowed down the throat will provide fast heartburn relief.

The remedies above should be your first line of defense against heartburn. Most of the time, they should work without fail, but they’ll only go as far as your lifestyle changes will take them.

Most of all, be very leery of prescription heartburn medication; it may cause you more harm than good. Recent studies have linked the use of these to a significant increase in the risk of heart attack. Over-the-counter antacids are little better, as they contain aluminum and can cause kidney stones with long-term use.

In short, natural remedies for heartburn work better, in tune with your body’s chemistry, and without these hazardous side effects.
