Washington is really a stressful place for this politicians. In a similar manner, these politicians are causing stress to each other as well as to its citizens. According to some studies, stress may very well be another trigger for heartburn. Heartburn is the most common symptom of acid reflux. How could this happen? A study entitled “The Effect of Auditory Stress On Perception of Intraesophageal Acid in Patients With Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease of Fass et al from 2008 supported this idea that stress contributes to acid reflux. When researchers exposed people with GERD to a stressful noise, they found that it increased their symptoms by making them more sensitive to acid exposure.
CNN chief medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta said acid reflux usually can be easily treated. “A lot of times, it may just be dietary changes,” he said. “Sometimes, you want to give medicines to reduce the amount of acid in the stomach.”
Acid reflux happens when the acid in the stomach moves up into your esophagus. This is due to the malfunctioning of a stomach valve called lower esophageal sphincter (LES). The LES normally closes as soon as food passes through it. The flushing back of acid can cause symptoms such as burning chest pain called heartburn. If acid reflux symptoms happen more than twice a week, you have acid reflux disease, also known as gastroesophageal disease (GERD).
With dietary and lifestyle modification, the discomfort brought by acid reflux disease can be alleviated. Lose some weight and watch your diet by avoiding alcoholic and oily foods. Elevation of the head is also important to inhibit the flushing back of acid. These are the two natural cures for acid reflux.
