Acid Reflux Remedies Homeopathic in West Bloomfield, MI
Sitting down to a healthy, hearty meal is one of life’s pleasures. That is, of course, unless you suffer from acid reflux. Acid reflux is that unpleasant burning sensation in your chest and stomach when your stomach acid flows back out of your stomach and into the esophagus. Though it usually doesn’t cause any serious health issues, that painful burning feeling can limit your diet and make eating feel like a chore.
Causes of Acid Reflux
The modern diet is partially responsible for the prevalence of acid reflux. The high salt content in most processed foods disrupts the delicate pH balance in your stomach, causing indigestion. Spicy food and carbonated drinks can also cause acid reflux due to their high acid content, which irritates the lining of the stomach and esophagus.
Non-diet related causes of acid reflux may include a hiatus hernia, pregnancy, high stress levels, medications, or excessive rapid weight gain.
