Do’s For Heartburn

  • Do drink plenty of water. This will wash the acid down, and also help dilute the acid in your stomach. Hence, drink more water.
  • Do eat in smaller portions, but more frequently. This is because larger meals are said to expand your stomach, which later increases the pressure causing the acid to go up the esophagus. So it is important that you eat smaller meals.
  • Do wait 2-3 hours after a meal to go to the bed. Laying down immediately after eating will cause the acid to slow back up the esophagus and result in a burning sensation. Hence, make sure to eat 2-3 hours earlier before going to bed.

Don’ts For Heartburn

  • Don’t eat foods that cause heartburn. Foods that cause i are : peppermint, citrus fruits, citrus drinks, chocolates, caffeinated beverages, alcohol, tomatoes and spicy foods.
  • Don’t chin down while you sleep. It is advisable for you to keep your head elevated about 6 inches away when you are sleeping. This is to avoid the acid from flowing back up through your esophagus.
  • Don’t smoke. Did you know that smoking increases the production of stomach acid? So, quit smoking too. It is injurious to health anyway.

    I have had severe acid reflux problems for almost 10 years and at one point I had completely given up on trying to fix it. I almost developed Esophageal Cancer and felt like the end of my life was on its way. Anyways, After years of searching I came across this blog where a guy told a story about how he cured his acid reflux completely.I read it and it has helped me out tremendously.

    Here is the story if you want to read it http(:)//anxiousreview.com/acid-reflux/
