A Few Handy Fixes To Deal With Acid Reflux.



If you have suffered from acid reflux disease in the past, you know how annoying this condition can be. This condition can make you very uncomfortable during the day or night. But, you can do many things to improve the situation when it comes to acid reflux. Continue reading to learn how you can gain full control of your life again.

Sometimes people that have acid reflux attacks mistakenly believe they are having a cardiac event. Don't ignore chest pain! It could be a heart attack. Seek medical advice as soon as possible. Diagnosis of serious symptoms should never be done without the advice of a doctor.

One of the major causes of heart burn is alcohol. It should be avoided. Alcohol has many bad effects on your health. Among them are damage to the lining of the stomach and an increase in stomach acids. Try to limit your alcohol when you go out with friends so you don't suffer from reflux all night.

Acid reflux can be triggered by certain foods in most people. Limit how many of these items you consume. Spicy and hot foods are two kinds that you want to avoid.

Choose exercise which keeps you standing upright. There are a number of reasons why this will assist you in dealing with acid reflux. For one thing, staying upright allows you to take advantage of the gravity when it comes to digestion. Walking and other moderate exercise also encourages weight loss, which will greatly improve acid reflux. While exercise can help to contain your acid reflux, ensure that it is low impact, as high impact will simply make matters worse.

Slippery elm lozenges can be helpful. Slippery elm bark, the main ingredient in these natural lozenges, coats your digestive tract in a protective layer. Lozenges also reduce your coughing and soothes your irritated throat. These lozenges are found in many health food stores.

If you suffer from acid reflux, avoid foods that may trigger it. Citrus, onions, tomatoes, mint, alcohol and carbonated drinks are some of the many culprits. Not everyone has the same triggers; therefore, if any of these mentioned foods do not bother you, it's okay to eat them in moderation.

Don't eat too many fatty foods. Eat fast food, fried foods and red meat in very small quantities. Get in the habit of checking all food labels to see the nutrition content and the amount of fat it contains.

Reduce the stress that you have in your life. When you are stressed and you eat, stomach acids build up and cause heartburn. When your meal is finished, relax by doing some deep breathing or meditation. Never lay down or recline immediately after a meal.

As you may have gleaned from the above article, acid reflux doesn't have to control your life. With a bit of basic information and work, it is possible to make your acid reflux a thing of the past. Put the above advice to good use and gain control of your life once again.
