Did you ever wonder why it’s called “heartburn” ? Certain foods that don’t agree with you cause stomach acid to back up, resulting in a sharp sensation in your chest, as if your heart is literally burning. Not a good feeling at all. If you have a bout of heartburn and you’ve run out of antacids or prefer a safe, natural route to feeling better, here’s what to do. Take a teaspoon or two of uncooked oat flakes, and chew thoroughly before swallowing. Oatmeal absorbs the stomach acid that can cause the burning pain.
