Excessive acid and gas formation in our stomach leads to the regurgitation of the acid into the esophagus and causes heartburn. In this case, we feel a severe burn in our chest and stomach and we need an immediate relief. For a permanent relief it is very important to determine exactly the causes that lead to heartburn.
Heartburn treatment starts with a look at digestion and this first starts with when food enters the mouth. Teeth have a specialized purpose of grinding food into small bits, which gives more surface area for gastric juices to work on. Gulping food means a lot more work for the stomach
Cigarette Smoking: Smoking not only increases acid in the stomach, it also makes the sphincter muscles of the esophagus weak. This combination promotes the backflow of acids into the esophagus.
Don’t drink when you eat – it’s important to drink a lot of water but it’s not recommended to drink with a meal. You already know that getting your stomach full will make you suffer from heartburn again, so you definitely don’t want to fill it with water! You should drink before the meal and about thirty minutes after it!
Meditations are the treatment for many mild cases of heartburn. Meditation helps to absorb excess stomach acids and increase the rate of digestion food. Liquid antacids most often work better than pills or tablets to neutralize stomach.
Prevent cases of nighttime heartburn by using a heartburn pillow or wedge that allows you to raise your head and torso higher than your stomach, making liquids stay in the stomach while you sleep. Of course, you should wait for two or three hours after eating to go to sleep or lie down.
