Organic Baking Soda
Most commercially bought heartburn medication that you buy over the counter contains sodium bicarbonate as the dominant active ingredient. You can however use organic baking soda to relieve your heartburn as it neutralizes gastric acidity at a fraction of the cost of commercial products! The US National Library of Medicine recommends:
When to have: 1 to 3 hours after meals and again just before bed. Dosage: Adults 1 to 2.5 teaspoons as required but not exceeding 5 teaspoons per day.
What form: Stir recommended dosage with cold water
Precautions: Certain medications may interact adversely with baking soda and in particular if you suffer from other pre-existing medical conditions. It’s always good to double check with your doctor before use.
