- Stomach burn
- Acid reflux
The PADMA HEARTBURN-FORMULA (Tibetan Cong zhi 6) contains, as the most important active ingredient, calcium carbonate (Tibetan Cong zhi, pronounced “tsong schi”). Translated, it means: to calm (zhi) the chronic phlegm (Cong). Calcium carbonate is used in Western medicine as an antacid. This medicine contains, in addition to calcium carbonate, five herbs and is used for heartburn, acid reflux, and heartburn symptoms caused by the flowing back of acidic gastric juices into the esophagus.
According to the Tibetan view, the PADMA HEARTBURN-FORMULA counteracts any accumulation of cold slime energy (Beken) with too much heat energy (Tripa) in the stomach. This energy imbalance is responsible for an abundance of stomach acid, sour belching, and heartburn.
The PADMA HEARTBURN-FORMULA balances the stomach environment, calms the stomach, protects the mucosa from acid damage, and promotes a healthy gastric emptying with substances that aid digestion.
The HEARTBURN-FORMULA is suitable to treat acute symptoms and the treatment of long-term stomach problems that go hand in hand with a burning sensation in the stomach or the esophagus. Also, the plant composition gets rid of the oppressive feeling in the chest and stomach area after rich meals.
PADMA HEARTBURN-FORMULA is available without prescription in canton Appenzell Ausserrhoden in packs of 60 capsules each in pharmacies and drug stores.

The PADMA HEARTBURN-FORMULA comprises acid neutralizing calcium carbonate, Elecampane root, cardamom, safflower, pomegranate seeds, and Indian long pepper. The plants’ active ingredients contain essential oils, flavonoids, bitters, and hot substances.
The PADMA HEARTBURN-FORMULA is based on the traditional recipe Cong zhi 6, which has been successfully used for centuries as a stomach harmonizing and neutralizing, slightly warming formula.
Findings of modern research explain the mechanisms of this medicinal mix: the calcium carbonate neutralizes excess stomach acid in the duodenum. The bitters from the Elecampane root support digestive functions and promote the production of digestive juices.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT
HEARTBURN AND ACID REFLUX
Heavy, spicy and fatty food, sour meals, raw food, stress, fast eating, obesity, and lack of exercise can affect the balance in the body. These complex factors can affect the stomach negatively and inhibit digestive functions.
Over time, this disrupts the environment in the stomach. This results in significant stomach distress and a weakened digestion.
A burning sensation in the stomach area or below the breastbone, acidic belching, acid reflux (back flow of gastric juice into the esophagus, throat or even the mouth), and a feeling of stomach inertia can occur individually or in combination.
A BALANCED ENVIRONMENT IN THE STOMACH
To support a balanced environment in the stomach, one should not eat food and beverages that hurt digestion. These include alcohol, coffee, cigarettes, chocolate, greasy food, sour and cold dishes, and raw food.
Other tips: Take small meals, do not eat before bedtime, raise the head of the bed, and reduce obesity. It is recommended that one should sleep on the side to prevent acid reflux.
Stomach problems, which manifest in a narrow spot as pain or pressure or occur with a general feeling of illness, require medical diagnosis and advice.
