Homeopathy for Heartburn and Indigestion

Heartburn can be a real issue in pregnancy.

As the baby grows, they press everywhere, and up against your stomach is one place.

This can cause the stomach acid to be pushed upwards, causing heartburn, indigestion or acid reflux.

Managing these symptoms by eating small and often, not eating too late at night before you sleep, and watching out for foods that cause an aggravation (and avoiding them) can be a real help.

Below are details of some of the key homeopathic remedies that can help for these symptoms too.

If you want some information on potency and dose, look at this blog too.
