Any eggs in the house? You can take an eggshell, boil it clean, dry it, and powder it completely then mix in water and drink it - it's pure calcium carbonate, chalk, same active ingredient as Tums.

Baking soda works, too, about a quarter teaspoon in 8 ounces of water.

But carbs are the ticket in the absence of real antacids. Avoid the salted ones if you can, the sodium and chlorine in those can further irritate.
