    Try warm water with half a lemon squeezed in first thing in the AM before eating anything. It will help alkaline your stomach. Cut out coffee, black tea, chocolate, alcohol, spice, mint, and google foods that are alkaline (good) and acidic (bad). Stay away from PPI's like nexium.

    I suffer from heartburn quite a bit and have found that slippery elm and dgl licorice helps. Both are easily found at a vitamin store if you have one near you or on line. The dgl you chew and the slippery elm you swallow.

    I also sip marshmallow tea which coats the stomach and the esosphagus.

    Hope that helps!

      I also use slippery elm. It works for me. I take Pepcid or Pepto when it is really bad for two weeks. I don't drink alcohol or caffeine, as it makes it so much worse. 😃
