I have found this to be a healthy alternative to antacid pills like Tums, Ranitidine or Famotadine which can be very harmful to your health.

One small apple between dinner and bedtime will help to eliminate nighttime heartburn. Most preferred is Granny Smith, second and third choice is Pink Lady or Braeburn.

If you're a frequent heartburn sufferer, try this for a week or two, and it will be a regular routine for years with the results. And it's healthy for you too.

On the rare occasion when you need something extra, 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in a small amount of water will not only do the trick for heartburn, but it will also alkalize your body.

Those who have health issues and cannot take salt or sodium, the baking soda is not an option.

I never had a big heartburn problem, but there is the old saying "an apple a day keeps the doctor away" and I'm sure there was many reasons for that wise saying.
