Sour burping or just a bad feeling in your stomach? With these 15 home remedies against severe heartburn, you can help yourself and improve your health. It’s best to try out which of these home remedies will help you the best. If there is no improvement after a few days and heartburn occurs more frequently, you should always consult a doctor and have the causes clarified.

Even if the home remedies can reduce the severe heartburn, it is usually only a reduction of the symptoms of heartburn. It would be better to get rid of heartburn in the long term and to know the causes and fight against it with natural remedies and dietary rules.

Heartburn No More

This article will present you the best 15 home remedies for heartburn. Heartburn can be very unpleasant and can be accompanied by abdominal pain and other problems. If you know how to help yourself well, this does not have to be a problem. The order of the home remedies has nothing to do with their effectiveness. Not all tips may help you, but you may find “your” home remedy for heartburn in the list.

Don`t take every home remedy, listen to your own body and simply try different ones. 

1Baking Soda

Especially if too much food is triggering your heartburn attack, a short-term intake of baking soda is helpful. However, it is not recommended for long-term use, otherwise, the effect may be reversed. In case of prolonged heartburn talk to your doctor.


Chamomile tea is very effective here and can be consumed at any time without hesitation. It is best to buy loose camomile blossoms and pour hot water over them and drink it warm. Otherwise use normal tea bags, which can already help. Chamomile has a stomach calming effect and is also good for the other digestive organs as well as for calming the inflamed mucous membranes.

For the preparation of a chamomile tea mixture with mallow and marshmallow pour a total of 25 oz boiling water over 2 heaped teaspoons of herbs. Then let it infuse for about 10 minutes.


To get rid of burning in the throat quickly take some milk. Please note that because of its protein and fat content milk is in the long run not the remedy of choice.

4Healing Herbal Teas

A good healing tea made from good herbs such as chamomile, nettle, balm, fennel, aniseed, caraway, cumin, dill seed, marshmallow root, and yarrow often provides good results here. Try a tea made from 1 part mint, 2 parts calamus root and 2 parts yarrow, the ingredients are available in a well-stocked tea shop or in any good pharmacy. In almost every supermarket you can get tea bags with anise, caraway, and fennel and a tea of it can often be very beneficial.

Strangely enough, apple cider vinegar, which naturally contains acid itself, helps with occasional heartburn. In addition to an actual basic metabolism (and thus acid neutralization), apple cider vinegar is said to have a number of other healing effects. Ty this out: Stir a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a small glass of water and drink while eating.

6Healing Clay

Better than baking soda is the healing clay, taken orally, which has a healing effect on the stomach. Among other things, the healing clay binds harmful substances and too much stomach acid. It can be taken without hesitation. Stir one to two teaspoons or measuring spoons of the healing clay into a glass of warm water and drink. 1 to 3 times a day depending on the severity of the symptoms. The healing clay is available in powder or capsule form.

7Carrot Juice

Carrot juice helps as well as apple cider vinegar. You can get the best carrot juice in the health food store, but the juice from the supermarket is just as good if it is a direct juice and not diluted or added sugar. If you have a juicer, you can, of course, make the juice from fresh carrots.

Heartburn No More

8Chewing Gum

Saliva production is stimulated and the burning in the esophagus can be alleviated by the saliva flow. A minimalistic and only short-term “home remedy” against burning in the throat.

9Bitters, Swedish Herbs

There are very good non-alcoholic stomach herbs to buy in organic shops. Swedish bitters usually contain a certain percentage of alcohol, which can cause problems with heartburn. Those who only want a digestive after a heavy meal can fall back on a variant with alcohol.

10Silicea Gastro-Intestinal Gel

The gel is particularly effective against diarrhea and heartburn and intestinal diseases because it is able to bind harmful germs and pathogens. They are then excreted during the normal digestive process. My grandma helps herself with all kinds of gastrointestinal problems with this home remedy.

11Herbal Digestion Drops

In the pharmacy, it is best to ask for herbal gastrointestinal drops as a home remedy for heartburn. A well-known manufacturer recommends the drops instead of the chemical medications in case heartburn is associated with stomach pain, nausea, bloating, bloating, and cramps (i.e. if heartburn occurs together with other ailments).

With e.g., Verdin Complexx a herbal gastric remedy, many good experiences have already been made. Verdin Complexx drops is a comprehensive digestive support for the digestive system. This special composition based on concentrated herbal extracts can be regarded as one of the most effective herbal “medicines” against heartburn and is extremely well tolerated.

12Ginger, Calamus, Curcuma and Cardamom

These spices are very healthy and ginger, in particular, is a well-known home remedy for stomach problems. However, every person reacts differently and in case of doubt, try something different. I myself already got heartburn after too much ginger, which is why I should take it only in moderation.

A good ginger tea is nevertheless my favorite after a rich meal. According to Ayurvedic teachings, it heats the digestive fire (Agni). There are people whose “fire” in their stomach is already too strong and for them, other herbs are more suitable (e.g. fennel, chamomile, aniseed), because they are more relaxing than “heating”.

13Tea with Curcuma

Tea recipe with curcuma: For dyspeptic complaints (sour burping, heartburn, feeling full): Pour 25 oz of boiling water over a teaspoon of dried curcuma rootstock, cover and leave to steep for 15 minutes, then pass through a tea strainer. The freshly brewed tea can be drunk twice a day with a cup. Use as needed (for heartburn or bloatedness).

Artichoke Alcohol-FREE Liquid Extract

Also easy to ingest as a capsule after a sumptuous meal. Artichoke supports digestion and often relieves a feeling of fullness.

King artichoke extract has been proven to be effective against heartburn. To this result a study with more than 160 study participants, who took over six weeks away artichoke extract to itself, came. Somewhat more than 60% of the study participants were free of complaints at the end and with approximately 74% of the participants a clear improvement of the heartburn symptoms was to be registered. The effect of the artichoke extract began on average after approx. 11 days.

15Potato Juice

Of course, freshly squeezed potato juice is best, but the one from the health food store is also very good. It is important to drink only small amounts of potato juice because large amounts can lead to poisoning symptoms (raw potatoes contain solanine, a toxic alkaloid). The starch in the juice neutralizes gastric acid.

16More Home Remedies for Acid Reflux

These are some extra home remedies to help acid reflux quickly. Please use them in as small amounts as possible, otherwise, the effect turns into the opposite:

Heartburn No More

Chew oat flakes, hazelnuts or a few coffee beans or eat a piece of white bread (without sugar!). If you don’t have pure baking soda or sodium bicarbonate in your household, you can also try a small amount of baking powder. However, baking powder often contain additives that are not very beneficial in the long run.
