Ease the Discomfort of Heartburn and Indigestion, Let's Get Heartburn and Indigestion Under Control - Articles Surfing


Ease the Discomfort of Heartburn and Indigestion Let's Get Heartburn and Indigestion Under Control.

Have you ever jumped up in the night, awakened by a sudden and nauseous burning sensation in the center of your tummy? Maybe you indulged in some overly spicy chili, or overdid it on those late-night leftovers. Heartburn and indigestion can be very cruel.

These hasty heartburn and indigestion solutions will alleviate your fiery stomach and help you get back to sleep!

Initially what you'll want to do when you're awakened by heartburn and indigestion pain is to get out of bed and stand up. This helps keep the acid at bay while you go and get a full glass of cool water.

Slowly drink the glass of water, and then proceed to mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda, and half a glass of water. Be careful though, if you have high blood pressure or are pregnant, this can bring on water retention or increase your blood pressure. This will help relieve your heartburn and indigestion.

Particular foods can affect nighttime heartburn and indigestion. These foods like soda pop or beverages with caffeine (not too good before bed anyway!), alcohol, garlic, chocolate (sorry!), citrus fruits, tomatoes and tomato-based products are high on the list. Avoiding this mode of food can help alleviate your heartburn and indigestion, if you regularly find yourself awakened with that excruciating burning!

Eating a banana every day operates similar to an antacid to soothe heartburn. If you're already stricken with indigestion, eating pineapple or papaya (or drinking the juice) can help mend your stomach as expected.

If you think others would benefit from reading this article, pass it on to them.

How does this one sound? Some people also claim that eating a teaspoon of mustard (yuck!) can work without delay. If you like mustard go for it.

Keep away from eating, at least two hours prior to laying down for bed. Those late night refreshments can attack your stomach all night and prevent you from falling into a deep, restful sleep. Sleeping on your left side or at a somewhat upright angle can keep acid down where it belongs. This will decrease your chances of getting heartburn and indigestion.

Another way to help yourself from heartburn and indigestion is to eat small, frequent meals and chew your food slowly and thoroughly. Allow two or three hours to digest before going to bed or lying down

If you are awakened by heartburn on a regular basis or the pain is severe, or if you have heartburn with vomiting, you'll want to consult your doctor immediately as it may be a sign of a more serious condition such as an ulcer. Above all, avoid spicy, fatty and caffeine-containing foods before bed, and you should be able to drift off to sleep easily.
