The worst things you can do for heartburn

The worst things you can do for heartburn

About one in five people has occasional problems with heartburn, according to 1177 Vårdguiden. It is a symptom of reflux caused by stomach contents back up into the esophagus.

Those affected usually describe a burning and stinging sensation behind the sternum. It usually lasts for a few minutes, but it can also cause anxiety for as long as several hours, according to Helevy Pendleton, MD, chief medical officer at Reception Ellenbogens ÖNH In Malmö:

Reflux disease is to some extent a lifestyle disease. What, when and how we eat is affected by what – also by certain medications, sleep and stress. Because we don’t really live well, this is increasing among the population.

Diet can affect heartburn

Explain:

You usually get heartburn after eating. But you can also get it without eating on an empty stomach. Then the contents of the stomach remain in the stomach, which returns to the esophagus due to the relaxation of the mouth or poor motility of the esophagus.

“Everyone has had heartburn at some point, when they ate something the stomach didn’t think was very nice,” says chief medical officer Helevy Pendleton.

If you think heartburn is a concern, there are a number of things to keep in mind. It’s about what you eat and drink.

Everyone has probably had heartburn at some point when they ate something the stomach didn’t think was very nice. At the same time, there are some foods that allow you to get more acidity, says Helevy Pendleton.

So what should be avoided to avoid so many problems?

Avoid: coffee, Coca-Cola and energy drinks

Caffeine, as in coffee, Coca-Cola, and various energy drinks, is not very good for the stomach. This also applies to carbohydrates, fatty foods, and dishes with strong spices such as chili and ginger. Apple cider vinegar, juice, fillets, and yogurt, just like sodas, should be avoided if you have heartburn. Only carbonated drinks are not a good alternative because they are acidic and because you can easily beat them, making the contents of the stomach in a gaseous form reach the esophagus.

Peppermint and menthol are also not good alternatives to reflux disease – as are chocolate, gum, and various lozenges. Alcohol and nicotine can also cause more heartburn.

A breakfast of coffee, yogurt, and a glass of juice isn’t a smart combination if you have heartburn and GERD issues. Sour yogurt, sour juice, caffeine in coffee. Or if you’re craving a chili pizza and a glass of good red wine on a Friday night. Then it gets fat and strong through pizza and sour and alcohol through wine. Not a good idea. Then the best beer selection for food. Although it contains carbon dioxide, it is not acidic. But there you have to test what works and what doesn’t.

Choose: a high-protein diet

In general, it can be said that a diet that contains more proteins, animal or vegetable, causes fewer problems with heartburn than a diet based on carbohydrates. It is also best to eat less food, on more occasions, during the day. Also a tip is to avoid eating too late in the evening.

Tasty and good, but yogurt is sour and therefore a lower quality alternative for heartburn sufferers.

– If you have some intermittent problems with heartburn, you can take Novalucol or a glass of Samarin or Gaviscon after a meal. Gaviskon sits as a gel on top of the stomach contents, forming a physical barrier and preventing much of the stomach contents from going back up into the esophagus.

“It’s seldom a sign of something serious.”

Is it then possible to permanently get rid of heartburn?

If you can treat the underlying cause, such as reflux, you can treat heartburn — temporarily or completely. At the same time, I would like to emphasize: heartburn in itself, as an individual symptom, is rarely a sign of something serious and is not something to worry about. It’s a bit annoying in everyday life, says Helevy Pendleton.
