Strengthening Sphincter for Heart Burns

Working with crystals can help ease heart burns. After traveling to India for two weeks, the long hours on the plane, the jet lag and the lack of exercise gave me my first uncomfortable sensations of heart burn. To help alleviate this pain, I used Moonstone to soothe the stomach and Fluorite  to calm the nerves. Another crystal that will help strengthen the sphincter is the Power Stone, Malachite

Heartburn usually occurs after eating or while lying down or bending. This means that your esophageal sphincter is weakened. The weakened valve allows stomach acid to flow into your esophagus instead of keeping it in its place! Pressure on the sphincter muscle from excess weight, overeating, or in my case, sitting for long periods of time, can cause this weakening of the valve.

Use healing crystal energy to help strengthen this valve. Other home remedies you will want to try are sitting upright while digesting, exercising and chewing gum or other foods that create a lot of saliva, which helps push back the acid into place!
