 Is she eating the right way yet? My heartburn's disappeared since I stopped eating grains. And I'm only just noticing that. Nice.

anytime i eat grainy foods i get heartburn, this whole weekend has been nothing but grainy food... I am so sick of it.

have you thought about giving her aloe as a remedy for heart burn?  I drink aloe drinks quite often and even have friends that were taking medication for heartburn every day and I had them try the aloe drinks and they stopped having to use their medication.  aloe is a wonderful digestion aid and anti inflammatory.

Healthy diet could never hurt.

It got me thinking thou, what would a caveman do to treat heartburn? Maybe something like burying a rats tooth in the woods on a moonlit night. Or eating some combination of roots and flowers or herbs.

I'm glad we have better doctors now. I found a painting of some real winners doing brain surgery during the middle ages. You can tell the chick is good, she has a book on her head. And never let a dude wearing an oil funnel for a hat open your skull  ;D

I found that the cause of my heartburn was actually low stomach acid, not excessive stomach acid.

The symptoms are very similar, a lack of stomach acid causes increased fermentation, which in turn causes gas and can cause some acid to travel back up.  Stomach acid inhibiting drugs actually make this problem worse for many individuals.

Digestive bitter herbs on the back of the tongue pre-meal are great for preventing indigestion and heart burn, especially after large meals.
