Talking Finally found cure for never ending heartburn

I've had some intense heartburn throughout this entire pregnancy but the last couple months have been the worst. I was literally up night after night with acid in my throat. It didn't matter what I ate or didn't eat. I tried every single remedy/concoction that was suggested to me, but nothing worked. The more water I drank the worse it got.

I finally went to a chiropractor for some issues I was having in my pelvic area and he discovered I had a couple ribs out of place. He said just being out of alignment can cause serious heartburn issues. I was adjusted on Thursday and haven't had a single bout of heartburn since.

Just thought I would put that out there in case someone else is dealing with the same issue. He also put my pelvic bone back in place with fixed the pain I was having down there.. almost couldn't walk. He thinks this will also eliminate back labor which I have had with every single birth and keep me from going over due.

I love my chiro. He moved and is a like 45 min drive now so I rarely go. I will have to pass on the info next time someone I know complains of roaring hb. Thanks!

I was too.. it was my first time seeing one. He was really gentle because I was pregnant and some of the adjustments were a little uncomfortable, but the results are seriously worth it.

I was so excited when my chiropractor was like " hey are you having heartburn?" Then she adjusted me and it was amazing! I highly recommend chiropractors, I was sceptical at first now I'm converted.

It's actually not too bad I always thought it was more. My first visit was 75 for the initial assessment and each visit after is 30 ish. So worth it. My insurance pays half because I have an HRA.

It's not a cure all unfortunately. My chiro only adjust that nerve if it " shows up" so your heart burn might be caused by just normal pregnancy stuff. Sorry! Have you tried papya or papya extract tabs? Another thing that works well for me is 2 tbls ACV in one cup hot water and honey to sweeten it. It's not bad to drink and I fell so much better after.
