Heartburn is an everyday occurrence for some people. It can become very frustrating to find out what helps provide you with some relief, and what causes you the irritating and burning pain. Fortunately relief can be found in the foods we eat, instead of relying on medications.
Almonds can provide you with heartburn relief and prevention. They are best eaten raw, and unsalted, but they do not taste their best in this form. You can find them roasted, salted or not, in the bulk section of your supermarket or local health food store. You can also find them prepackaged in a variety of flavors, just watch out for spicy varieties that may cause you heartburn. They are even available in little snack size packages at gas stations. It is best to eat four or five almonds after a meal, and you can also try eating a couple before the meal too. The nuts contain fiber that help the food digest, and they can also help absorb excess stomach acids so they do not find their way up to your esophagus. It all sounds a little nuts, but go ahead and try it for yourself and you might be able to get rid of the pills.
Eat your oatmeal. Something I have heard thousands of times from my grandmother, but did not take seriously until the adult years. Oatmeal is a powerful way to start your day. It contains fiber, and has properties that help balance the acids in your stomach. It also coats the lining of the stomach and esophagus, providing soothing heartburn relief. Try adding some bananas, a few almonds, and drizzle with honey for added benefits, since bananas contain enzymes that help calm and relieve. If you are not a big fan of eating a bowl of oatmeal, you can get your oats in other ways. Cookies are a big favorite, and can actually be good for you when you add oatmeal to the recipe. You can also try adding a half a cup to banana bread recipes. There are also many meatloaf recipes that contain oatmeal instead of breadcrumbs, and actually taste great too.
