To start off, learning what heartburn, acid reflux, and gerd all are is most important. Acid reflux occurs when the acid in your stomach goes back into the esophagus. When this becomes chronic, it becomes GERD. And heartburn is simply a symptom of acid reflux and GERD. Acid reflux can cause many other symptoms, like sore throat, cough, a bitter taste in the throat, or burping.

There are many things that can trigger acid reflux and heartburn, like spicy foods, fried foods, vinegar, acidic foods like tomatoes, onions, garlic, high-fat foods, and coffee. You should try to learn what foods cause what and reintroduce them when the problem is more under control.  As for other methods of controlling the problem, you should try to lose any extra weight you may be carrying, sleep with your head elevated, and make food choices that will not worsen your condition. Additionally, try to get some time to relax in during the day and try some supplementation or medication. Probiotics can help a lot with gut health and ease digestion issues. But if your problem is persisting and is affecting your quality of life, then a medication from your doctor may be the best route to take.

Key Points:

  • 1Heartburn is more than just an uncomfortable sensation, it can negatively affect your quality of life.
  • 2Unfortunately for heartburn suffers, there are a myriad of foods that can be blamed. These include spicy foods, fried foods, coffee, and alcohol.
  • 3Fortunately there are many home remedies that can help prevent heartburn.


Not only is GERD chronically painful, it can lead to permanent damage to the lining of the esophagus and even increase your risk of developing esophageal cancer, so it isn’t something to brush off or just learn to live with.
