Excess acidity in the stomach, or from improper functioning of your digestive system is what usually results heartburn.
At the very point where the esophagus and stomach join, a special muscle opens and closes the esophagus. Here is how it works; whenever we swallow food this muscle relaxes to let the food pass into the stomach after which it closes again.
The infamous feeling of heartburn can happen as a result of the muscle malfunctions. The contents of the stomach then rise back up the esophagus, irritating the area.
Looking for how to stop it? Here we go;
Avoid acidic foods like lemons, etc, alcohol, fat or fried food, overcooked food, coffee, juice, tomato base products and chocolate. But mind you, don’t deprive yourself too much. Rather, observe which foods bring on the heartburn and avoid them. One more thing is, don’t go to sleep immediately after eating (you should eat supper around 7 o’clock) and don’t smoke, especially after meals.
