In this video, we’re going to talk about three ways to get rid of heartburn without using antacids. Antacids only work for a short time, requiring you to take more and more to keep your symptoms at bay. Through prolonged use, antacids will only make heartburn worse by depleting your stomach acid.

Antacids are associated with the following side effects:
• Bloating
• Indigestion
• Allergies
• Increased infection in the stomach
• Depression

Antacids create a condition known as achlorhydria, which depletes your stomach acid, but you need your stomach acid to get rid of heartburn. Your stomach is very acidic and should have a pH between 1 and 3. Enzymes cannot be activated if you do not have the right pH.

Heartburn is not a problem resulting from too much acid—it's a valve problem. Keeping the pH of the stomach between 1 and 3 keeps the valve shut.

How to get rid of heartburn naturally:

1. The most important nutrient to eliminate and prevent heartburn is vitamin B1 (thiamine). Your stomach can not produce acid when you’re deficient in vitamin B1. A diet high in carbs depletes B1. Low B1 deprives the autonomic nervous system, which controls the valves of the stomach. Look for a natural source of vitamin B1 to get rid of heartburn.

2. Potassium and zinc are very important for your stomach acid. Try a good electrolyte powder and trace mineral supplement to increase your intake of these important minerals. Also, make sure you’re getting plenty of sea salt.

3. Increase your stomach acid. This triggers the valve at the top of the stomach to close. Apple cider vinegar and betaine hydrochloride can help acidify the stomach.

It’s important to note that if apple cider vinegar or betaine hydrochloride causes burning, you may have gastritis or an ulcer. In this situation, you need to heal the stomach before taking apple cider vinegar or betaine hydrochloride.

    Thank you Dr. Berg for your help
    You’re right my gerd medication doesn’t work just as my medication for my neuropathy doesn’t touch my pain

  • @paxalotin says:

    I stopped drinking alcohol – the day after Christmas.
    I used to get terrible heart-burn & reflux in the middle of the night.
    Since – then – I had only one attack of heart-burn – early on — but none since.
    Can’t say for sure that Alcohol was the cause – but I’m feeling the benefits all the same..

    • @maryfolks9368 says:

      Good for you. I’ve not drank alcohol in 6 yrs although i do crave a glass of wine every now and then. I just think of the physical pain any kind of sugar or carbs will cause me and the cravings go away😊

    • @stephenmiller9009 says:

      Me too had too much tequila and it actually burned my stomach not just reflux

    • @butchmetzger7023 says:

      Currently eating tums like candy. I’ve been off pantoprasole for maybe 3 months. Partly voluntarily. Partly because of a proposal of surgery to maybe fix the problem. Surgeon demanded I stop the damn pill for 2 weeks before his first test. I’m eating way less tums now than that first 2 weeks! Possibly less than while taking prescription strength drugs. Some additional tests (torture games the Dr’s people blamed on insurance requirements), and they tell me my heartburn is severe (I tried to tell them that) and I also have a large hiatal hernia. They could help, but the surgery is probably not happening due to cost and high copays.
      Do you have any videos on hiatal hernia fixes? I’ve managed to survive long enough that I’m not sure I would go thru surgery even if affordable. Any recommendations for that hiatal hernia that was “insignificant” 4 years ago would be appreciated!
      Thank you.

    • @alexlabra1562 says:

      @butchmetzger7023  hi I’m going through small hiatal hernia and was prescribed pp1 for the hernia but I wanted to ask what tips u take or took over the years to not take ppi and also what to eat. I was told by my gi specialist i don’t need surgery because my hernia is to small. Bit it hurts sometimes and he also said to lose weight. Any tips can help me I’m struggling to fix my stomach problem.

    • @NansGlobalKitchen says:

      Same for me I have so many digestive issues but I think mine is from me not having my gallbladder anymore. It is horrible acid reflux. Hope you get some relief soon.​@@alexlabra1562

    • @butchmetzger7023 says:

      @alexlabra1562  tips for getting off PPI? Stubbornness. Lots of prayer. Sitting propped up with pillows at night until my back hurt worse than my belly. Avoiding triggers as much as possible. Also, otc pepcid.
      I started having heartburn when I was pregnant, and so skinny people would ask if I was anorexic. I was eating everything I could stuff in my mouth. Everyone assured me heartburn with pregnancy was normal. I was also working with my husband a lot and lifting way too much at times and would
      occasionally need to be checked for hernias in the groin area.
      First PPI was omeprazole. It helped for a while. Then dr increased the dose. Then switched to pantoprazole cause it was stronger. Then increased the dose of that. With age and weight gain that I blame on the drugs, I just kept getting worse.
      Started the surgery testing and haven’t taken any PPI since. Triggers for me seem to be stress, lifting, and tomatoes. Eating small meals and refusing to play human forklift seem to help.
      I hope this helps some and wasn’t too long winded!

  • @mackosajt86 says:

  • @fganddogs says:

    That’s exactly what happened to me!! Heartburn, pills to zhe point I tried to research causes myself. When I told my Dr I didn’t want to take omeprazole I was prescribed something else. I knew I was on my own. Old math class reminded me a neg and a neg is positive. That’s when I hit heartburn with acid!! ACV
    Now I’ve found dr berg and am learning so much! Thank you Doc

  • @Moonfaerie0521 says:

    Thank you so much for all of your guidance on health Dr. Berg, especially heartburn. Last year, doctors destroyed me with the combination of H2 blockers and pantoprazole. I began to have strange symptoms such as SOB, dizziness, weakness, rapid hearbeat, insomnia. I couldn’t eat vary my diet while I was taking these bc my gut would hurt and I mentioned this to my physicians, they told me they were not concerned with any of this causing my symptoms. They told me to keep taking the medications and that I was just anxious. I decided to go see a hematologist. My body wasn’t holding iron and my B12 was very low. No other explanations except the medications. I started taking betaine hcl with my meals, increasing my red meat intake and seeing a holistic dr who encouraged colostrum. My heartburn is gone and I’m much better. Thank you again!
