BubbleYum, Heartburn's Worst Enemy

Alternative remedies are on the rise but not just for the major aches and pains, for something as simple as heartburn, which happens when stomach acids splash back into the esophagus and burn it. Check out this alternative remedy from CNN.com for dealing with heartburn:

Fit's Tip: If you're going to try it, go sugar free. It's much better for your pearly whites and doesn't add any calories.
