Heartburn

Heartburn is a burning sensation that’s usually located behind the breastbone. The pain often rises in your chest and may radiate to your neck or throat. When food or liquid enters your stomach, a band of muscle at the end of your esophagus (called the lower esophageal sphincter or LES) closes off the esophagus. If this muscle fails to close tightly enough, stomach contents can back up (reflux) into the esophagus. This partially digested material is usually acidic and can irritate the esophagus, causing heartburn and other symptoms.

Avoiding Heartburn by:

1. Avoiding Alcohol
2. Avoiding caffeine carbonated beverages
3. Avoiding chocolates
4. Avoiding citrus fruits and juices
5. Avoiding tomatoes and tomato juice
6. Avoiding spicy or fatty acids
7. Avoiding spearmint or peppermint

An article I read from Health line.
