Are you suffering from heart burn

Anta-acid drugs are just common today in every home. According to some data more than 30% of people in US are suffering from the hyper- acidity. This is a data, from the medical studies. Actual percentage is much higher as the people suffering from the hyperacidity used to "treat" them b y themselves. Because most of the drugs for hyperacidity are "over-the-counter" drugs, which are easily available to all. With increasing work loads in professional life and due to emotional ups and downs cases of hyperacidity are increasing day by day.
Conditions like hyperacidity seem to be "nothing" for the physicians even as they think it is quite normal that stomach starts to produce extra Hydrochloric Acid. They have only antacids to prescribe, as their main aim is to relieve the symptoms, not to treat the cause. Ayurveda is much more concerned about all these diseases, which look small and nothing to all of us, as these diseases when combine together these may cause the deadly diseases by themselves.

A small glass of red vermouth always works for me. I prefer Noilly Pratt.

What also helps is eating less food.

With me, it's usually that cup of coffee in the afternoon that gives me a hot stomach. Another friend told me that he is sensitive to tomato sauce (his wife is Italian, but that is another story) but on a couple of occasions, when he had a manhattan before dinner, he was fine.
Manhattan Cocktail 3/4 oz sweet vermouth 2 1/2 oz bourbon whiskey 1 dash Angosturaฎ bitters 1 maraschino cherry 1 twist orange peel
I'm sure there are other approaches to this problem. I'm just passing along what works for me:-)
If you do have an aperitif before dinner, I'd suggest something that is 17% alcohol or less because higher alcohols levels numb taste buds and reduce your appreciation of a good meal. Conversely, if you have burned a meal, creme sherry and candle light may be a way out;o))

I find most pain relievers and sleeping pills causes heartburn. Large meals are a problem for me also, especially if lots of tomatoes are consumed. I really question that alcoholic beverages will help. I believe that alcohol causes more problems than it helps.
Pepsid Complete and Nexium works well also, However if I take any of these for a few days, I will get stomach cramps.
Exercise is the best solution that works for me.

We can only speak for ourselves, I'm not recommending anything to anybody. To put a finer point on it though, red vermouth is served with one or two ice cubes, and 2 - 3 tablespoons of it seems to be sufficient. I understand that many people have led long, satisfying, and productive lives without imbibing. Then there is that guy who is unbearable until he has a drink, and the other guy who is OK until he has a drink. Go figure;o)

Not all heartburn is caused by bad eating and/or drinking habits. I've had reflux for years and only recently, since I went to a new doctor, who had me tested for bacteria did we find that my heartburn was indeed caused by bacteria and not food or stress. I've been on two different antiobiotics for almost two weeks now to get rid of this. So I'd suggest that anyone with persistent heartburn go and get tested to make sure you don't have a bacterial infection that is causing it.

Or a hiatal hernia, which I found out after popping Tums for years and taking Zantac (sp?) prescribed by a lazy and indifferent (male) doctor -- with double-plus ungood results.
Finally my (female) GP sent me for tests which revealed GERD and my (female) GI specialist prescribed Prilosec. It keeps the hiatal hernia more or less controlled. I did not want to undergo surgery to sew up the piece of stomach that intrudes/protrudes into the chest cavity. But recently I have been reading about new surgery that is done by introducing the tools via the throat. Might look into it...

Interesting, I have had heartburn for most of my life I take protonics and it works. I hate having to take a pill everyday.

:What also helps is eating less food. : Yes, and particularly within say 4 hours of bedtime.
Truth is that hyperacid stomach is much more common than everyone realizes. It by no means only causes heartburn. It can manifest itself in other ways, including nausea.
In my case, I think I've largely controlled it by dealing with aggravating emotions effectively.

We eat a healthy diet so seldom get HB. We use TUMS when we do. It has no calories.
