When gastric acids return back up into the esophagus it is known as heartburn. Heartburn sensations include the feeling that there is something stuck in your throat, burping, a sour taste in the back of your throat, and/ or a burning feeling in your chest. The burning feels like it starts in your chest and travels all the way up to your throat. Usually it happens a little after eating and can last a few minutes up to a couple of hours, and may get worse when you bed over, lie down, or have on tight clothing.
GERD (gastro-esophageal reflux disease), acid reflux, and heartburn are such a common medical condition that if affects roughly one out of five people. We get this because acids from the stomach are getting into the esophagus, usually caused by weakened muscles. Muscles weaken over time with age, can be caused by obesity or excessive consumption of fats, or also genetically inherited.
Some of the things we consume on a daily basis can cause heartburn. Some of the common things that trigger heartburn include aspirin, alcohol, caffeinated products, carbonated beverages, peppermint, fried foods, acidic foods like tomatoes, onions and garlic, acidic juices- mainly citrus fruit juices, chocolate, anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen, and even spices like pepper and mustard.
The foods we eat play a major role when it comes to having a natural balanced inner well-being. The foods, beverages, and medications above should be taken in very limited quantities. You should also try to avoid eating too fast, eating large meals, and eating right before bedtime. With changes in your diet and a little motivation to change your lifestyle, you can be well on your way to getting over your heartburn and improving the quality of your inner wellbeing long term.
Antacids are one of the least expensive, easiest, and most relied upon ways to get temporary relief from heartburn symptoms. Antacids are available over the counter and one dose lasts around an hour. They come in liquid form, which works the fastest, chewable tablets and gums, and also dissolving tablets.
Get medical advice if your heartburn happens more than once a week, if the problem seems to be getting worse with time, if you have difficulty swallowing, or if it interferes with your lifestyle overall. It is time to think about how you can better your health long term and you may need the help of your doctor. Having regular heartburn could be a bad sign of a more serious digestive problem and should not be taken lightly. You need to take action to improve your health on the inside and outside of your body.
Simple life style changes in eating habits, activity, and behavior can help improve your heartburn condition. When you make the decision to improve the quality of your own life you will be on your way to avoiding heartburn symptoms, and prevent the recurrence of heartburn.
