  • A study found that even something as simple as drinking water can help suppress acute symptoms of acid reflux by temporarily raising stomach pH
  • Ultimately, the answer to heartburn and acid indigestion is to restore your natural gastric balance and function – do this by consuming enough good bacteria
  • Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are drugs that very effectively block your stomach's ability to produce acid, which makes them ill-advised since upwards of 95 percent of heartburn cases are caused by too little stomach acid
