If you are having stomach contents coming back up into your mouth and throat very often it is very dangerous as these areas do not have the protection against the stomach acids that your stomach does. If left untreated in can even lead to cancer of the throat. Over the counter remedies give temporary help but why not try to solve the problem altogether. Here is a great article on the subject you may want to check out if have more than occasional heartburn.

Many people are interested in natural remedies, so thank you for that information. A word of caution, though. It is not strictly true that herbal remedies have no side effects. If you ever experience any unusual symptoms when taking herbal remedies you should definitely stop taking it and report it to your doctor. You also always need to let your doctor know what remedies you are taking -- especially if you are also taking any sort of prescription medicines.
