heartburn following exercise

i have found that after exercising, except hiking, i have pretty bad heartburn. the over-the-counter remedies give me abdominal discomfort. does anyone else experience this? if so, how do you deal with it? i really try to stay away from pills/medication when possible. thanks!

It sounds like acid reflux being aggravated by jarring exercise. Since you'd like to avoid conventional pills and medication, I will share that I use licorice root to calm my esophageal inflammation when it occurs from time to time. Here is a link to some reputable information about using licorice root. Most larger health food stores have knowledgeable staff on hand to help you select herbs. Of course if this does not help, or the symptoms worsen, I know you'll check with a professional health provider.

thanks for the tip on licorice! i have reluctantly taken prescription meds for this (yes, it is GERD) in the past, but after changing my lifestyle and eating habits, no longer need them every day. i appreciate your help!
