Hi Mustafa

Heartburn and burping are symptoms of indigestion. Gaviscon can improve your symptoms, but not your digestion. Educate yourself

Constant heartburn and burping are symptoms of bad digestion and low function of the pancreas. Indigested food is collected usually in the intestines. Not properly digested foods are fermented by bacteria and yeast with creating many toxic matters, bad smell gases. Consecutively, this toxic mass causes irritation, inflammation, porous gut, food allergies, low amount of the beneficial intestinal bacteria and dysbiosis (Candida-yeast overgrowth or small intestine bacterial overgrowth-SIBO), nutritional deficiencies, internal toxicity, etc.

This toxic matter has just two ways to go: up to the mouth and down to the colon and anus.
By going up, it causes heartburn and burping, nausea, vomiting, dyspepsia, belching, fullness, cramps, and upper abdominal pain. By going down, it may cause flatulence, diarrhea, constipation, IBS, colitis.
Hiatal hernia  may cause constant heartburn and burping, as well.

What do you have to do to raid off from this problem? I do not know your medical date, so I do not know the simple solution.
For your knowledge, you can find many important to you information and advices in my EBook “Healthy Pancreas, Healthy You”, part 1 and 2. Pancreas is core of your proper digestion. Go to functional disorders. Healthy diet is vital.

Have good health.

I can answer all questions about digestive health, especially in focus on the non-drug, non-surgery treatment. It includes healing diet, acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutritional supplementation, healing mineral water, abdominal massage, and cleansing techniques. All these practices are widely used by gastroenterologists all over the world.


This is my everyday job at Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic in San Francisco. I have decades of the experience of working as an MD in ICU, outpatient department and privet practice.
