When should I see a Doctor about my heartburn?
NaturCress®️ is a dietary supplement for occasional heartburn and it’s not a drug. Occasional heartburn is common, especially after big meals, and usually is not serious. But sometimes, that burning sensation can indicate something more serious, such as ulcers, bleeding or an inflammation of the lining of the esophagus.
Gastroenterologists recommend contacting your doctor’s office if your heartburn won’t go away after two weeks, you get it more than twice a week, you’re having trouble swallowing, or your heartburn is causing nausea and vomiting.
NaturCress® is not appropriate for people with gastric diseases, frequent heartburn or issues with the valve in the lower esophagus that is supposed to keep acid down in the stomach. But if your occasional heartburn is triggered by specific foods, meal size or by the time of day that you eat, then NaturCress® can help you.
