Heartburn remedy?

So I'm having terrible heartburn Anyone have any more natural remedies then popping tums constantly I've been trying to avoid foods that could make it worse but it doesn't seem to be helping.

I really liked Thayer's Slippery Elm lozenges with my last pregnancy, it might take sucking on two or three in a row, but it's perfectly natural and really does help.

Re: Heartburn remedy?

Tastes horrid, but works wonders. Baking soda and water, directions on the back of the box.

Slippery Elm? I thought that was used for constipation, didn't know it worked on heartburn as well.

Re: Heartburn remedy?

My midwife gave me something called "stomach comfort". It works just as well as Tums, but it tastes icky. It's worth it though - tums can cause the placenta to calcify.

Those lozenges I mentioned are sold for sore throat, but they help with heartburn for the same reason they help with sore throat (mucilage).

Papaya enzymes!!!! I've used them for years! Seriously, try them!
Tums can give you calcium deposits in your placenta, as well as make you constipated and inhibit iron absorption, so try to avoid those.
