I remember when I used to get heartburn all the time.  I was under the impression I had too much stomach acid.  So, I always had my bottle of Tums.  They would temporarily relieve symptoms, however, the irony is they were actually exacerbating the problem by depleting the stomach acid that was already deficient.  

So, put aside your antacids and when you wake up in the morning, put a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar or lemon juice in your water.  Do this for some time and it should start to replenish your much needed stomach acid levels.
