7 All-Natural Approaches To Relieve Mild Heartburn
Some of us go for acidic juices, carbonated drinks, and chocolate drinks for that extra pick-me-up effect. Oh, that instant refreshing and energizing feeling! But all of a sudden, you start to feel this burning sensation inside you. This burning pain, known as heartburn, affects people of all ages, and most often than not, it is due to a lifestyle factor.
This sensation is the condition in which acidic gastric fluid is regurgitated into the esophagus. This happens when some of the acidic stomach contents go back up into the esophagus and this creates burning pain in the lower chest area, often after eating or excessive consumption of acidic or caffeinated drinks or food.
Here are some lifestyle behaviors that can cause this:
- Eating particular types of food such as dairy, spicy, or fried foods.
- Taking medications for asthma, high blood pressure, allergies, painkillers, sedatives, anti-depressant, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
- Eating habits like eating large meals, lying down, or going to sleep shortly after eating.
- Drinking certain types of beverages such as soda, coffee, or alcohol.
While one of the most effective ways to treat mild heartburn is to avoid the foods and beverages that trigger symptoms, it is always easier said than done. So let me help you by incorporating these easy tips on how to relieve mild heartburn while improving your lifestyle.
