Heartburn Cures – Natural and Conventional

One of the most common complaints that I see in the ER is heartburn. That may sound odd to you at first, and you’re probably wondering who in their right mind would ever visit the emergency room for heartburn. Severe heartburn can actually feel similar to what many people believe is a heart attack, which leads to many people visiting the ER for such a common ailment.

Luckily, there are many effective and safe treatments for heartburn which work very well!
