If you read the side of a box of baking soda, you would know that it is extremely dangerous to take more than 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda mixed with water. The advice on this page to drink equal parts of baking soda to water is very dangerous.
#3 - Warning! - 10/25/2007 - 22:35
when it says peppermint does it mean any kind of peppermint?(candy,gum,etc.)
#4 - Kevin - 02/06/2008 - 18:29
Put two teaspoons of Apple cider vinegar (not from grocery store but from Health Food store) and put it in an 8oz glass of water and drink before you eat. This has worked for me but if you want to drink a teaspoon before eating that will work within 30 mins. I think it is the best cure I have ever had for indigestion. Tried all the meds and all they did was cost me lots of money.
#5 - Audrey - 06/25/2008 - 22:31
The orange remedy really worked. i had really bad indigestion and i had an orange then about 2 mins later i was burping and felt much better
#6 - Sarah - 12/02/2008 - 03:44
Hi, All do you eat orange before meal or after meal?
As some people said, if you eat after meal, it will become ferminted and create more gas, is it true
#7 - wilson - 01/18/2009 - 16:04
I did suffer of stomach my all life. Solution: ABSOLUTELY STOP EATING ANY FOOD THAT CONTAINS GLUTEN.
wheat, barley, ray, oats. You will see the difference after a week. When I say ABSOLUTE, I mean that. Do not try even an \\\"ant bite\\\", because you will get sick again for a week. Stay away from processed food, because GLUTEN, the ENEMY is almost everywhere. I guaranty this. Do not blame coffee, fat food, spicy.
#8 - Dilia - 05/20/2009 - 17:18
Best remedy.. drink several quarts of lukewarm water. After about 10 mins, you will get very sick and throw up. The good news is all the water flushes out stomach and vomit comes out easily and doesnt hurt much.

Remedy #2 - take a long shower and let the water run on your back. It helps trememdously

Remedy #3 - masterbation.. keeps your mind off the stomach pain
#9 - Jacob - 06/02/2009 - 06:41
First of all for those who smoke and have indigestion...STOP! IT ONLY MAKES IT WORSE smoking helps stripe the throat. And I know everyone has a favorit food but sometimes you have to give them up just until you get better if you want to get rid of Indigestion these food and drinks are: CHOCOLATE, CHILLI, TOMATOES, ORANGES, GRAPEFRUITS, FRIED OR FATTY FOODS, HOT SAUCE, MUSTARD, KETCHUP, ANY ALCOHOL BEVERAGE. SODA'S AND MOST TEA'S.

wheat will only cause problems for those who have gluten sensitivities or allergies. It's not the enemy! If you have regular indigestion go see a naturopathic doctor and he/she will help you figure out if you ahve sensitivities or allergies.

Drink 1 glass of fully boiled water as many times as you want to get relief from any sort of indigestion related problem.
#18 - Dibyendu - 11/25/2009 - 20:24
a lot of yogurt has live cultures and natural probiotics which aid in digestion. not only will it help regularity, but it will also assist in restoring natural bacteria that live in the digestive system to better the immune system in fighting issues such as indigestion and even help stop getting sick in general

I have had indigestion most my life, and well never really thought about it, but it kept getting worse and worse, So I decided to take some Prilosec, it worked for the 14 day's but the day after It came right back, and the crappy thing about that is it says dont do another 14 day treatment for 4 months.. well when the four months were up There was something new on the shelves it was prevacid took that, and Now I dont have as bad or as many flairs as I use to..

and for castironnomore, I am not sure if it really is true or not, but some one once told me that if you do the baking soda remedy you Have to burp other wise your heart could blow up.. sounds a bit far fetched but I never wanted to see if it would happen GOOD LUCK!
#25 - Hate indigestion - 03/09/2010 - 18:53
The one thing that ever actually worked for me was drink a nice cool glass of ginger ale or rolling a fat ass blunt and smoking it .. but marijuana is illegal for many reasons but it has been proven to aid in the relief of nausea.look it up but you can always take the legal route ...ginger ale or just crystalized ginger
#26 - pinki - 03/16/2010 - 03:50
Does eating yogurt actually help? Because I have no appetite, but if it will take away my stomach pains, then I will eat it, for sure! :-)

#31 - nisa - 05/28/2010 - 10:55
Last year I started getting indigestion and this year, it started getting more frequent and painful. I tried a few remedies but nothing helped until I started having a glass of ginger ale every night after dinner. Now I only have indigestion about once a month and they are not as painful as they used to be and more ginger ale usually gets rid of the pain.
#32 - jterap - 06/12/2010 - 14:13

I feel that it is a shame that some individuals with a real health issue,come on this site and have to see some of the trash left here . Those vulgar , small minded perverts are only impressing themselves and showing their parents what a fine job they did raising them. You could be very surprised to learn what your mouth can get you into . Even if Jesus dose love you........
#36 - Lee - 01/08/2011 - 18:20
One night (many years ago) my girlfriends and I went for a night out-Dinner and bar hopping afterwards. Well, I had a very bad indigestion after dinner and felt very uncomfortable and unhappy while going into a bar, but I went ahead and got myself a bottle of beer! Lo and behold, a few minutes later, I started burping a lot and stomach pain disappeared! So now every time I have the symptoms, I just go ahead and grab myself a couple bottles of beers and voila! Pain is gone!!! Works all the time for me and I'm glad I discovered that remedy one fateful night. Try it and you'll see! :-)
#37 - Ladybaby - 01/12/2011 - 18:36

#38 - eelyn - 01/21/2011 - 06:07
for my indigestion, I just tried one tablespoon of lemon juice from Real Lemon bottle. It worked. I was beginning to panic because I am out of zantac. Zantacs really help too.
#39 - Ree - 01/31/2011 - 15:54
Ha ha ha. It [email protected] that indigestion is a real and annoying stomach problem, but some of these comments are hilarious.
Tim says he tried all the suggestions in order, which resulted in him having to get his stomach pumped.
Scooby says he smokes weed everyday, lol funny but it does not help it just makes it worse.
Laugh out loud at Lisette she gives props to Pepto Bismo, but that crap is nasty! But my favorite comment so far would have to be
Jacobe for suggestion masterbation, he says it keeps your mind of the pain. Thats funny but also not true.
Hey I will tell you reading this webpage was entertaining as well as very informative.

Okay but on a serious note, I have been suffering with indigestion for as long as I can remember.
When I was younger I remember my doctor putting me on a 2 week Prilosac regimen. I'm not sure if that is the name of of the actual pill, but I know he told me to take them once or twice a day for two weeks and it was suppose to cure the indigestion. Well ten years later I am still suffering with this severely discomforting stomach problem.

I have only tried a few of the home remedies above. I've tried luke warm water, but I never threw up after, nor was I looking for that effect of relief.
I have tried milk maybe once, but I can't really drink milk by itself it makes me feel like I'm that guy that had that show on MTV, who would always put his mouth on animals tits and suck the milk out of them.
Wow I can't believe I can't think of this guys name, he was married to Rose McGowan, anyways back to my point.
I've tried bacon soda and water but I think my stomach has become immune to that method.
It worked for years but now as I get older I must consider trying different methods to get rid of the indigestion or at least alternate a few.

Okay I must admit that I work a lot, and I pull the night shift so when I'm not working I'm usually sleeping. With that said I usually only eat one big meal a day, and that would be around 2 : 30 am right before bed, so I know I'm putting my body through alot.

The remedies I will be using in the future, because for the most part they produce the desired effect, will be
- 7 up, works best if you drink all or more than half of the bottle in one drink.
- Carbon Water, club water, (Not sure about Tonic Water) Specifically Perrier Water, sold in most liquor store here on the west coast.
-Bacon Soda and Water, but I think if you use this one too long your stomach will begin to get use to it.
-And after I read this page, and before I began to write this blog response I tried and orange. I actually ate two from a tree in my back yard. It's unfortunate that I sit and stare at this tree day after day, produce these delicious, sweet and juicy citrus fruit and I never bother to eat them. I am turning into a worldly fag and I'm turning my back on the simple things in life like fresh oranges from your back yard, monogamy or just long walk on the beach.

Well back to my point I can feel the oranges battling off the throat burning, razor cutting gases rising out of my stomach and traveling into my throat. VeRY F-bomb painful! The Orange may win this time but I wonder if they can pull it off the next time the Gasy Monster begins to rise.

Hey I had fun writing on and reading these comments. Now I'm going to go find something else I can eat to make me feel like crap! It's human nature to try to find the easiest way to comfort. When everyone here knows the that the best way to get rid of indigestion is to EAT RIGHT AND TO EXERCISE REGULARLY.

I hope you guys were as entertained reading my comment as I was reading the other ones.
#40 - lookslikeafatfuture - 03/14/2011 - 15:48
B-) eat a few GRAPES. Next time I'll try an orange. COOL site!! B-)
#41 - CURED!!! - 03/22/2011 - 09:39

#42 - bunnylove - 06/10/2011 - 09:57
I just want to thank those who recommended the orange for the indigestion. I had one orange but they were the small Clementines so, I had another. I felt better within about 5 minutes of eating the 2nd one. The pain was so bad, I was worried that I might be having a heart attack. Thank You!
#43 - so much better! - 07/02/2011 - 22:41
I didn't see the thing about the baking soda until I already tried it.
#44 - I hate this page - 07/14/2011 - 22:41
1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1 tablespoon white vinegar, 1/2 cup water When the fizzle stops drink it in sips. The relief is instant and your cured after you burp. And the comments about usage of baking soda ridiculous! Generations of families have used it for home remedy treatments. But those otc and prescription drugs are the real danger. Side effects in all of them! In nature lies the solution to all illnesses. But nature is not a moneymaker. We all have open access to it. Just remember above all things prayer and believing your healed works every time.

#45 - Worked 4 me - 08/07/2011 - 06:14
And that baking soda should be aluminum free. And that removes the danger of harmful chemicals in your mixture. Baking soda is natural but the process used to obtain it is not. But they do have some companies that use a natural process w/water minus the aluminum.
#46 - Worked 4 me - 08/07/2011 - 08:03
It's true about the heart exploding thing.. I took 3/4 of a tea spoon of baking soda, didn't burp and my heart exploded... Was really annoying...

I have had acid reflux for years. Mine is hereditary, my grandfather, father, brothers, and daughter all have suffered with this. I used to keep a bottle of tums beside the bed at night and eat them by the handfull. I have tried all the OTC acid reducers and had perscriptions for them. All were only temporary and I was never comfortable with taking them. I heard apple cider vinegar worked and decided to try it. I have used several types of vinegar, and most worked well, but now I am taking 1tsp raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar(sold at GNC or local grocery store), 1 tsp local raw honey, and about 4 oz water. My acid reflux is now gone. I have tried this with foods that I know hurt me terribly with total success. As long as I take this every day I do not suffer any more. My colds seem to be fewer and milder also. My advice is to get off of all acid reducer medications as I belive they eventuaooy lead to severe intestinal disease (diverticulitous). My opinion, but one of my family has been on medication for years and ended up having 20 in of intestion removed due to being severly diseased. Only one on medication and only one with this problem. Once again this is my personal opinion based on my personal observation.
#51 - I Suffer No More - 06/19/2013 - 21:43
actually, Alka-Seltzer is just baking soda and aspirin.. a lot cheaper just to drink one half teaspoon baking soda in 8 ounces of water and take 2 aspirins if having pain.
#52 - marmo - 07/26/2013 - 21:44
The baking soda, vinegar and water mix made me admediatly vomit
