helps to wash stomach acids back into your stomach. And darling, your after-dinner habits may be causing your heartburn. Avoid drinking, smoking, napping and lifting right after dinner. So, please don't take out the garbage for a couple of hours, honey.
Pretty Baby .. place the head of your bed on six inch blocks. This seems to reduce heartburn at nighttime. Also, if you're in the habit of lying on your right side, try sleeping on your left side instead. In that position stomach acid is less likely to make its way up into your esophagus. Although exercise is great for physical fitness, running can cause "runner's reflux." If that's the problem, try other forms of exercise that do not jostle the body so much.
Won't you be my valentine and get relief with antacids? But timing is important! Dr. Dennis Deckter, Ph,D for Digestive Research says, "use antacids after you eat but before heartburn occurs. Food and drink wash them away."
Oh yes, Sweeties, don't forget Ground-Hog day, February 2nd. If the sun is shining and the ground-hog can see his shadow, he goes back to sleep for a while and winter is not over. If the ground-hog cannot see his shadow, he begins his springtime activities. Only superstitious people believe this story.
The February sunshine steeps your boughs,
And tints the buds and swells the leaves within.
