What is Acid Reflux?
Pain in the upper abdomen combined with nausea and bloating is what we call indigestion or an upset stomach. It is not a disease but rather a collection of uncomfortable symptoms. Acid reflux or heartburn is a burning sensation in the chest caused by rising stomach acids. It is accompanied by burping, nausea, stomach bloating, and often a feeling as though food were stuck in the throat.
Acid Reflux or GERD?
Almost one third of Americans suffers from occasional symptoms of heartburn. Acid reflux is considered a serious health condition if experienced more than once or twice a week. Called Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease or GERD, the frequent back flow of acids into the food pipe (esophagus) can lead to inflammation, soreness, ulcers, breathing problems, and more.
Foods to Avoid
It is the fatty and fried foods, citrusy fruits, alcoholic, caffeinated, and carbonated drinks that often trigger excess acid production. Prefer apples, bananas, baked potatoes, steamed greens, lean meats, herbal teas, and light desserts. Avoid big meals, lying down after eating, and smoking. Prepare your own food more frequently, and enjoy it with your family and friends.
