The right choice of foods, correct diet and appropriate dining schedule must be observed to at least control the symptoms. This can only happen when you allow yourself to focus on the priorities in life and learn to set aside unnecessary worries. Read more:

What Is Acid Reflux Disease?


At the entrance to your stomach is a valve, which is a ring of muscle called the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). Normally, the LES closes as soon as food passes through it. If the LES doesn’t close all the way or if it opens too often, acid produced by your stomach can move up into your esophagus. This can cause symptoms such as a burning chest pain called heartburn. If acid reflux symptomshappen more than twice a week, you have acid reflux disease, also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

A healthy diet is indeed crucial for this type of disease. Antacids and anti-blocking medications can be bought over the counter to relieve the discomforts – but take note when the symptoms are worsened. Infection and other diseases in the stomach and esophagus can be formulated out of the frequent irritations due to heartburn. Live well and function well.
