Chewing Gum

Chewing Gum


Chewing Gum - Home remedy for Heartburn:  Chewing gum stimulates the production of saliva which is an acid buffer. Chewing gum makes you swallow more often. This pushes those nasty acids out of your esophagus. When you pick a pack of gum, just make sure it is sugar-free so that you can protect your teeth.

Chewing Gum - Home remedy for Acid Reflux: Chew a piece of sugar free gum for 30 minutes after a meal. Chewing gum stimulates saliva glands and increases the flow of saliva. Any acid built up in the guts will clear out quickly .

Always seek the advice of your doctor before taking herbal medications
