What Causes Heartburn and Acid Reflux
When we eat, the food from the throat passes through the swallowing tube (or esophagus) to the stomach. A ring of muscle fibers (called lower esophageal sphincter) prevents food or liquid to leak backwards from the stomach into the esophagus.
When this special muscle is not closing well enough, the food, liquid and stomach acid flows back into the esophagus. This condition is called Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and is causing acid reflux and heartburn.
Common symptoms of GERD are:
- burning pain in the chest area, just under the breastbone
- burping, belching and flatulence
- nausea just after eating
Most of the heartburn and acid reflux symptoms worsen during the night, when we lay down or when bending or stooping.
To get rid of heartburn and acid reflux doctors usually prescribe antarcids or drugs such as Nexium, Tagamed, Zantac or Reglan.
Unfortunately, these medications only relieve symptoms, but do not last very long. Also, most of the drugs have risky side effects as well as stimulate more acid production in the stomach.
