I had the most agonising heartburn every day.Sometimes when I went to bed the pain was intolerable, I have had all kinds of tests for this and have been taking Omeprazole for eight years ! As an ex smoker,I have always loved peppermints and always bought a pack of mint imperials, chewy mints or chewing gum at the supermarket.I don't know where I read it but I read that peppermint was a cause of heartburn ( strange when some instant relief tablets contain this!) but I decided to give up peppermint completely. Guess what - I haven't had the excrutiating heartburn again since ! -a little trapped wind - but I am 75 ! I now only take the Omeprazole about every three days just to be sure.It worked for me and maybe it is a little tip for others.
