Dealing With The Pain And Inconvenience Of Acid Reflux


Do you ever experience chest pain? Does it get worse when you rest? Does it only really happen after you eat certain foods? Are you experiencing a bitterness in your mouth after you eat? Do you always have a hoarse throat? These symptoms point to acid reflux, which you can find relief from by reading on.

To sleep well at night and prevent acid reflux, you may want to place a wedge underneath the mattress in order to keep your head raised. You can be creative about what you use. Boards, old books, bricks and so forth will all work just as well to elevate the head of your bed. If you can afford to, get an electronically controlled bed to keep your head elevated.

Stress is a huge opponent of acid reflux. During stressful times, stomach acid production increases significantly, which leads to reflux. Engage in pleasant pursuits following meals. You might meditate, read or simply watch some television.

Certain foods trigger acid reflux. Things like fried foods, alcohol, beverages with caffeine, and chocolate are some of the most common reflux causing foods. Foods that are highly acidic like tomatoes, oranges, grapefruits and lemons can cause acid reflux. Keep a log of what foods seem to cause your acid reflux. You may find some common problem foods are fine for you, while other foods that are not listed upset your stomach. To ensure you do not suffer, avoid these triggers.



For example, if your problem only occurs after vigorous exercise, the solution may be simple. Drink more water. Water keeps you hydrated. This will also aid in the digestion of your food. Water can enhance your digestion and minimize the acid produced in your stomach.

Losing weight can definitely help your fight against acid reflux. Obesity can be a common contributor to acid reflux. Significant health improvements can be seen by a 10% reduction of body weight, including improvement of acid reflux symptoms. Don't go on a crash diet, though.

Are you aware that a food's alkaline level is not associated with the pH level of it? Lemons and other seemingly acidic foods become alkaline when digested. This can be confusing to the average person. Learn more about food pH if acid reflux afflicts you.

When dealing with acid reflux, you need to make sure you watch out for trigger foods. Avoid foods such as garlic, onions, fried foods or spicy foods. Everyone has different triggers, so if some of these items don't bother you, you can keep enjoying them.

Since fatty foods are a major cause of acid reflux, try to eat low-fat foods when possible. No fried chicken, potato chips or french fries for you! Read the nutrition labels on your food to see the amount of fat they have.

You are not experiencing a heart attack. You don't have a cold, and it isn't necessarily the food you are eating disagreeing with your stomach. You are suffering from acid reflux, and thanks to the great advice provided above, you now know how to manage it. Take this information and make alterations to your everyday life.
