As you’ve seen in other articles on this blog, apple cider vinegar is one of the best cures for recurrent acid reflux and heartburn. But for occasional heartburn and indigestion (like after a big heavy holiday meal), baking soda and plain old water are a great fix. Baking soda neutralizes stomach acid.
1/2 to 1 teaspoon baking soda
up to 8oz of water
Simply mix the baking soda well into the water and drink it. That’s it! You can repeat this as needed, up to 5 times a day. It can also help with gas and other upset stomach issues.
NOTE: If you have an ulcer, it is not recommended to take this mixture or apple cider vinegar as it may result in a stomach ache. Recurrent or very severe acid reflux and heartburn should be seen by a doctor, is it can indicate more serious health problems.
