I find that the best temporary relief from heartburn and acid indigestion is baking soda, the stuff that you keep in your fridge to absorb odors. I don't use the stuff from the fridge (I don't actually keep any there), but rather from a box I keep in the bathroom for such occasions. A half teaspoon dissolved in a half glass of water works very quickly and doesn't give me any of that icky calcium or that other crap that Tums and Rolaids contain.
