Millions of Americans regularly suffer from indigestion, and for some eating a tasty meal can cause pain so intense that it is called "heartburn."
The Melaleuca Wellness Guide explains that normally the lower esophageal sphincter, a muscle valve, opens just to allow food to pass into the stomach. However when it opens too often or does not close tightly enough, heartburn is experienced as stomach acid seeps back up into the esophagus.
Heartburn relief can be achieved through lifestyle changes. Gas, belching, or a bloated feeling is a sign of inadequate digestion in the stomach. Eating on the run, inadequate chewing and stress all play a part in causing indigestion. Everyday Health helps clarify the difference between indigestion and heartburn.
Prevention and Remedies
For occasional heartburn try Calmicid. It contains 300mg of bone protecting calcium and a special blend of chamomile flower, fennel seed, and ginger root. These three herbs are well-known stomach soothers.
For regular, frequent heartburn, try Calmicid AC Acid Reducer. Money saving Calmicid AC Acid Reducer contains famotidine; the same active ingredient found in Maximum Strength Pepcid AC. Famotidine is a histamine2 blocker. It works by making stomach fluids less acidic and less irritating. Calmicid AC Acid Reducer goes to work within minutes and lasts 10-12 hours.
A surprising simple remedy for heartburn is chewing gum after a meal. Not only will chewing gum help freshen breath, but several studies have shown that chewing gum for 30 minutes after a meal can relieve heartburn symptoms.
Doctors often recommend sleeping with the head of the bed elevated, and waiting two or three hours after eating before going to bed. Both suggestions help keep stomach acid from splashing back up into the esophagus.
A food diary can help identity offending foods. Eat earlier in the day. Chew Exceed Sugarless Gum after meals and before bed. For frequent heartburn remember Calmicid AC Acid Reducer.

A few years ago I developed intolerance to caffeine. I get severe heartburn after drinking soda, coffee, or tea. When I learned about Calmicid I began taking it for my heartburn which worked so much faster than other antacids. Now when I know I will be out and likely to drink caffeine or have a rich meal, I take Calmicid AC prior and have avoided heartburn. Calmicid AC works even when I take it just prior to ordering my meal. It really works wonders. Thank you so much to Melaleuca and RM Barry for sharing.
I have a Westie, one of the cute little white dogs. She has a very sensitive digestive system. After her first year of being raised on a beef-brand diet, she started crying in pain. I took her to the vet and we decided to switch her diet to a lamb-base because it's an easier meat to digest. It did help, but Casey still suffers from indigestion problems and her cry is like that of a baby with colic. I started using the Calmicid AC when she has an episode and within 20 minutes, she is very comfortable and I could tell she is experiencing great relief. I decided to try this for Casey when I had some digestive issues from a little too spicy meal one night. If it worked for me, I wanted Casey to have the same relief. I don't suggest using all products on our pets, but this is one product I'm comfortable giving to Casey when she has her occasional digestive issues.
