Hi, I'm Trina Sims of Green Star Herbs, and today I'm going to talk about some home remedies for heartburn. The good, old fashioned teaspoon of baking soda in about six ounces of water works pretty well for most folks. Now, don't use this recipe if you're limiting your salt intake. Another reliable is peppermint. You can make a tea from the loose leaves. Commercial teabags are common, and many restaurants, in fact, stock peppermint tea. Peppermint spirits, which is a concentrated form and should be used diluted -- just a few drops -- in a little water. Don't use peppermint spirit straight. Or even peppermint candy may help calm heartburn. Now, for those few individuals who are sensitive to peppermint, of course, this is not the remedy for you. Ginger in all its forms, the fresh root made into a tea, the dried root made into a tea, or crystallized ginger, which can be carried along in a purse or kept in a desk and nibbled as necessary is a very pleasant way to take care of heartburn as well. Chamomile tea, calendula tea, slippery elm or marshmallow tea can all be very effective. And licorice in many forms is a good addition to all the teas we've discussed. If heartburn is a recurrent problem for you, you might consider adding probiotics, which may help over the course of several weeks. And consider removing preservatives from your diet. They slow down the body's ability to digest and clear food. I hope you find this information helpful. Thank you.
