Want To Prevent Heartburn? Watch Out What And When You Eat

Those who suffer from heartburn can get many nonprescription medications that can help to ease the symptoms. But it is important to know about the cause of the heartburn, before one could turn to medications.

As far as heartburn is concerned, much depends on what we eat and equally more important is when we eat. Dietary changes can help one to get rid of the risk. Foods and drinks that are high in acidity, like coffee, soda or citrus fruit, can aggravate the stomach. Even fatty and spicy foods, garlic, onions, pepper, caffeine and alcoholic or carbonated drinks can also be responsible for the heartburn, reports foodconsumer.org.

Change in lifestyle, such as losing weight or quitting smoking, can reduce bouts of heartburn. Also, avoid lying down or bending over after meals, and try to avoid eating right before bedtime.
