    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    some one once told me to use baking soda. the soda should nutrilize the acid without changing the taste of the sauce. I know each sauce brand is different to. theres some that i can eat and others that just distroy my stomach. Good Luck and happy eating

    Try good ol' Calcium Carbonate found in Tums and other similar OTC drugs. Sometimes I need a supplement and the super market variety of Calcium Carbonate works well.
