Don't know. Your stomach has a thermostat to keep it at a certain
ph. So if you take something excessively basic, it squirts out more acid.
If you eat very acidic foods/drinks then you stomach may become temorarily
skewed towards being acidic, but it goes away after a while.

Milk has a lot more crap in it than tums.
You could try drinking some "Milk of Magnesia"
(magnesium hydroxide--nothing to do with milk).
Its very mild.
