The most common drugs used to treat heartburn—proton pump inhibitors—can damage the body, weakening the bones and the immune system. Bill Gottlieb, America’s #1 natural health coach and author of Bottom Line’s Speed Healing, offers natural cures for heartburn so that you can avoid these drugs. One easy tip: Take a teaspoon or two of vinegar just after finishing a meal. Digestive enzymes are another option to help prevent heartburn. Finally, simply chewing your food slowly and carefully can aid digestion and further prevent heartburn.
