Heartburn can be very painful, it will keep you up at night and affect when you can eat and even your ability to keep food down.
When tums isn't kicking it anymore and you're faced sleeping upright between pillows all night there have got to be solutions that help with heartburn beyond just avoiding all food.
Peppermint can be a godsend for those suffering from heartburn. Peppermint tea with a half teaspoon of local honey. If you can get raw honey that is even better for your immune system. Pour 10 oz of hot water over a peppermint tea bag and let steep for 2-3 minutes, don't let it steep too long or you will get a murky sour taste. This is perfect for a lighter tea, something easy to drink. Stir in the honey while the water is still hot but not boiling and let honey dissolve.
For a late night drink that will sooth your tummy and your heartburn try warm milk and supplements. Heat 6 oz of full fat milk on the stove until it simmers but does not boil and stir in a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon. Preferably whisk together to get the best smooth consistency. Drink this still warm with two capsules of Licorice and one capsule of Milk thistle.
If you need something solid to eat while suffering from heartburn try making a buttery toast spread with two tablespoons of butter, ground Caraway, 3 drops of Greater Celandine extract and a teaspoon of raw honey. Spread on crisp, thin slices of bread and have with either drink above.
