The fattier the food, the worse it is for those with acid reflux. These foods can cause more acid to enter your esophagus. In addition, these type of foods make you prone for weight gain. People who are overweight struggle even more with acid reflux. Follow a healthy diet and lifestyle.

If you are a smoker, you must quit! Smoking can cause acid reflux by corrupting your digestive system. It slows down the amount of saliva you produce, increases stomach acid, and slows down digestion. It also weakens the muscles of the esophageal sphincter as well. Therefore, stop smoking immediately to help your condition.

Acid reflux is common in pregnant women. A growing child puts pressure on the stomach, which can push the acids of the stomach into the windpipe. Eating low-fat and low-acid food is a great way to keep reflux at bay. If this fails, certain types of tea can help buffer stomach acid without causing harm to your baby.

Acid reflux can be triggered with some foods. Alcohol, chocolate, caffeine and fried foods are a few of the different items that can cause acid reflux. Acidic foods like citrus fruits and tomatoes can also cause reflux. Different people have different triggers, and it will take time to learn which ones affect you.

When you notice reflux symptoms, think back to identify the foods you have eaten most recently. All acid reflux sufferers have specific foods that trigger their acid reflux. Once you realize what tends to be your trigger, try your best to avoid your trigger foods especially in the evenings.

It may not be wise to exercise immediately after eating. The food in the stomach may be pushed up into the esophagus when the lower muscles in the abdomen contract during exercising. Therefore, wait at least an hour before engaging in high-impact exercises.

Sometimes reflux symptoms are so painful you may feel like you are experiencing a heart attack. For your health and safety, always have a doctor check out chest pains. It is possible your chest pain is a heart attack. Seek medical advice as soon as possible. Misdiagnosis would be horrible, and you don't want any serious health issues.

Shed excess pounds to decrease the impact of acid reflux. Obesity is a main cause of acid reflux. Even just losing a very small percentage of weight can make dramatic improvements in your acid reflux symptoms. However, do not crash diet. Instead, lose weight by moderate exercise and consuming healthier, smaller meals.
