Top tips for relieving heartburn


Guardium is an over-the-counter treatment for when heartburn strikes, but there are also a few simple lifestyle changes that you can try to help alleviate symptoms:

Eat your last meal of the day three to four hours before you go to bed to allow it time to pass through your digestive system.

Prop your head and shoulders up slightly while you sleep. Lying flat can make it easier for excess stomach acid to escape up your oesophagus, which can lead to heartburn.

Try to lower your stress and anxiety levels – both are contributo­rs to heartburn, as they can impact how your digestive system works.

Wear loose-fitting clothes, especially around your waist. Putting pressure on your stomach can lead to heartburn.
