Lifestyle changes may help reduce the frequency of heartburn.
Consider trying to:
Maintain a healthy weight. Excess pounds put pressure on your
abdomen, pushing up your stomach and causing acid to back up
into your esophagus. If your weight is healthy, work to maintain
it. If you are overweight or obese, work to slowly lose weight —
no more than 1 or 2 pounds (0.5 to 1 kilogram) a week. Ask your
doctor for help in devising a weight-loss strategy that will work
for you.
Avoid tight-fitting clothing. Clothes that fit tightly around your
waist put pressure on your abdomen and the lower esophageal
sphincter.
Avoid foods and drinks that trigger heartburn. Everyone has
specific triggers. Common triggers such as fatty or fried foods,
tomato sauce, alcohol, chocolate, mint, garlic, onion, and
caffeine may make heartburn worse. Avoid foods you know will
trigger your heartburn.
Eat smaller meals. Avoid overeating by eating smaller meals.
Don't lie down after a meal. Wait at least three hours after eating
before lying down or going to bed.
Elevate the head of your bed. If you regularly experience
heartburn at night or while trying to sleep, put gravity to work for
you. Place wood or cement blocks under the feet of your bed so
that the head end is raised by 6 to 9 inches. If it's not possible to
elevate your bed, you can insert a wedge between your mattress
and box spring to elevate your body from the waist up. Wedges
are available at drugstores and medical supply stores. Raising
your head with additional pillows is not effective.
Don't smoke. Smoking decreases the lower esophageal
sphincter's ability to function properly...along with this you need medicine to cure your condition...medicine can't be prescribed online as it's a law...consult physicians they will help you
