How to Cure Heartburn

Things You’ll Need

  • Antacid (liquid or chewable tablet)
  • Cold milk
  • Cold water

Steps

Step One

If you are suffering from severe heartburn now, take some liquid antacid. It works faster than the chewable tablets, and will bring you relief sooner. Follow the instructions on the bottle to ensure proper dosage.

Step Two

You can also take the chewable antacid tablets. Follow the instructions on the bottle to ensure proper dosage.

Step Three

Drink a glass of cold milk to soothe your throat and stomach.

Step Four

Drink a glass of cold water to soothe the burning sensation in your throat and stomach.

Step Five

Do not lie down. Lying down allows acid from the stomach to come up the throat easily. Sit upright.

Step Six

Take note of what food brought on this episode of heartburn, and avoid it in the future to prevent further heartburn.

Step Seven

If you are prone to having heartburn, try to avoid spicy food as they may trigger heartburn.

Step Eight

Over eaters often suffer from heartburn too. If you are a regular sufferer, try eating a bit less to see if that cures your heartburn.
