Mustard for heartburn

If you are suffering from heartburn after a night of excess, mustard is a very good cure. Simply swallow a blob of mustard whole and it you will soon feel the heartburn go down.

Never heard that before!

However:

Quote:
The ancients held that mustard was good, and good for you, if not a virtual panacea. The Greeks credited Aesculapius, son of Apollo and god of medicine, with creating it. Dioscorides, the first-century A.D. Greek physician whose De re medica was the standard pharmacological text for centuries, prescribed mustard for everything from swollen tonsils to epilepsy, and as a tonic against "feminine lassitude." The Roman scholar Pliny the Elder ground mustard seed with vinegar and used it as a poultice for snakebite and scorpion stings, while the Greek physician Hippocrates favored mustard poultices for treating bronchitis, pneumonia, rheumatism and neuralgia--ample precedent for today's folk medicine remedy of a mustard plaster for many of the same ills.

Does this really work, or is it a punishment for those who believe everything they read on the Interweb?
I suffer terribly from heartburn after a night out, Rennie should give me bulk discounts cos I use so much of them!

Can I just remind people that this is not a medical forum and anything you read here should be read with a pinch of salt or a grain of mustard. If symptoms persist then see your doctor.

I've actually used it and I can vouch for it's effectiveness. But as already pointed out, if symptoms persist yada yada yada./
