Crunchy Tip #1 (Heartburn)

With all my internet research, book reading, and being on a Crunchy Mamas discussion board, I gain a lot of information and learn about a lot of different things. I thought it'd be fun and helpful to share quick and easy crunchy tips. They're tips that I use and can account for their effectiveness.

So, for numero uno, I wanted to share natural ways to fight heartburn. I never had heartburn until I became pregnant but get it now a handful of times a week. It's painful and I always get it at night when I go to bed.

  • A spoonful of raw honey. Not only does it taste delicious but it works really well for me. Trader Joe's sells affordable raw honey. Y.S. Organic Bee Farms also has great honey. There are also local beekeepers who sell it.

  • A cup of hot ginger tea. I drank a lot of ginger tea when I was pregnant. The ginger in the hot water was really soothing and comforting for me. I like Yogi's Organic Ginger Tea.

  • Swig of organic apple cider vinegar. I usually don't go this route. It doesn't taste all that great to me but nonetheless, it really works! I like Bragg's Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. It's sold at my local grocery store but it can be purchased online for a reasonable price at


  1. I did not know honey would help heartburn! Good to know thanks :)

  2. I miss Trader Joes. I wish there was one here in Savannah. Thanks for the tips!

  3. Well...last night I tried the vinegar (that was the only thing I had on hand) and it didn't really seem to work for me. Not everything works for everyone so I'm getting some raw honey and ginger tea to have on hand to try the next time I get the 'burn'. Ha ha! Thanks for the tips!
