Can eating board chalk cure heartburn?
Hello,

Thanks for your question.

Though not recommended, chalk (containing calcium carbonate) can ease the heartburn. However, it would not cure heartburn.

Prilosec or Zantac are much better, and they are approved medications for this condition.

Take care.
