yeah  Okay, I'm going to put this out there, I heard this from a friend that started having stomach problems.
She heard this from her gastrointerologist, he told her to drink warm water with her meals. The warm water mixes with the acids, and the warmth keeps the stomach muscles loose and primed for digesting foods more quickly. He told her, getting blood to your stomach will help aid in digestion. If you think about it, when your muscles are injured and don't want the blood to go there because that's what causes swelling and pain. When we injure ourselves and we don't want swelling and pain we put ice on it. The ice keeps blood out, thereby preventing swelling. When you eat, you want the blood to go to your stomach and start the digestive process. You can't refluz food that has moved on, right?
Well, my husband says it sounds like "vodoo" which is anything he thinks simplifies a problem. My friend who did this for two weeks got better, and a month latter she could eat pizza, with warm water, but she could eat pizza, AND the sour stomach breath she had went away.
It sounds easy, but it also sounds like something that couldn't hurt to try for a week. Just wanted to put that out there. Seems better than meds. If anyone tries this and it works please let me know, I'll make him try it.

I also read that our stomachs are warm to begin with and cold drinks are a shock to it.  I have tried the warm water (not always with a meal) and have to say that it does help.  It's water - can't hurt!

Thanks for posting this Gremma. Iin Aryuvedic medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine they say the sam ething and it make perfect sense. In fact i was just reading a book on hearburn the other day that was written by a gastrenterologist and he said if you NEVER again drink iced drinks it will be very helpfu. how hard is that to do in summer tho eyes Alittle warm Chamomile tea with dinner is even better as chamomile relaxes and sooths and is the frontline herb for heartburn.
