Acid Heartburn Treatment

For many people, the search for an acid heartburn treatment that actually works and provides long-term relief seems hopeless. There are many over-the-counter medications that do provide temporary relief, but an acid heartburn treatment that really gets rid of the condition for good can seem impossible to find.

One of the most effective heartburn treatment methods around is not only readily available, but it is free for anyone who is willing to make the necessary adjustments. The method involves simply making a few lifestyle changes, and sticking to a daily meal plan. It may be hard to believe that GERD and other related conditions can be treated without any medications?over-the-counter or otherwise?but the multitude of people that have gotten satisfactory results is a testament to the fact that eating better actually works. Here then are some heartburn treatment methods that involve general lifestyle changes.

Eat smaller meals more frequently

This is one method that works for losing weight as an acid heartburn treatment. The reason this is so effective is because large meals tend to cause expansion of the stomach, increasing pressure against the esophagus. By limiting the amount of food you eat and increasing the number of meals you have during the day, you greatly reduce the risk of pressure build up on the esophagus.

Avoid foods and beverages that cause the over production of stomach acids

Caffeine and spicy foods are the most commonly known culprits in this category, but food such as citrus and tomatoes may bring about an attack as well. Coffee, tea and soda should be taken in moderation?or eliminated entirely in more severe heartburn cases?while acidic foods are best avoided while the symptoms are still present.

Do not lie down immediately after eating

It appears this old trick may have some truth to it, as lying down too soon after eating may actually cause the digestive acids to seep up into the esophagus, setting off the characteristic symptoms of heartburn. In general, it is best to wait for two hours after a heavy meal before lying down. For the same reason, it is also a good idea to keep your head slightly elevated when you sleep.
