Apples – can calm down acid production.

Basil leaves also help in relieving heartburn, as well as combating nausea and gas. Chewing 2 to 3 basil leaves minimizes stomach acid.

Chamomile Tea

Chamomile has been used to help neutralize stomach acid. It is also used by people as a stress reliever.

Fennel tea – according to herbalists, tea made from anise, caraway, or fennel seed can ease the burn of heartburn. Add 2 teaspoons of any of them to 1 cup of boiling water, steep for 10 minutes, strain and drink.

Eat soothing foods – brown rice, plain or with a little sweetening. Soda crackers (preferably unsalted) are bland, they digest easily, and they absorb stomach acid as well.
