eliminate heartburn without meds

burger and friesGreasy food makes my heart hurt, so I stopped eating fried and greasy foods years ago. Food and acid seeping upwards from the stomach into the esophagus causes the pain we feel in our chest, which is why it’s called heartburn. Instead of treating the issue, you can prevent heartburn by adhering to the simple steps below:


Eat smaller meals – large meals can cause heartburn by putting pressure on the esophageal sphincter

Sit up while eating – don’t eat lying down or leaning backwards

Eat slowly – I use smaller utensils and watch TV or read while eating, which naturally causes me to eat slowly

Be mellow – stress negatively affects digestion

Eat low fat – fatty, greasy foods cause indigestion

Skip the hot spices – hot peppers only cause a slight increase in caloric expenditure, so if spices cause you stomach pains, skip them
