Whether it happens once a week or at every meal, heartburn can take its toll. You have many relief solutions to choose from, but are you choosing the best? The price of finding relief from occasional heartburn should not be ingesting toxic additives or facing unpleasant side effects.
Tips To Curb Heartburn
Certain habits can increase the likelihood of heartburn/indigestion. Here are some simple ways to help reduce the risk.
- Portion Control
Too much food can tax your digestive system, leading to indigestion. Use smaller plates to help keep portions in check.
- Slow Down
Being busy and on the go makes us rush through our meals. Make sure to slow down and chew each bite adequately.
- Eat Earlier
Eating too close to bedtime may not give you enough time to digest food before it’s time for your body to be at rest. Eat at least three hours before bedtime
The type of food you are eating may be more difficult to digest and therefore is often the main contributor to heartburn. And as mentioned above, food chewed incompletely or which is still solid when it reaches the digestive tract can place additional burdens on the pancreas and gallbladder. But did you know that certain foods can actually benefit those more prone to heartburn? Below are foods you may want to avoid along with foods you may want to start adding for their benefits.
- Fatty/Fried Foods
- Acidic Foods (Tomatoes, Citrus Fruit, Coffee)
- Caffeinated and Carbonated Drinks
- Spicy Foods
- High Fat Dairy (Cheeses, Ice Cream, Butter)
- Aloe Vera
- Dark Leafy Greens
- Melon (Cantaloupe, Honeydew, Watermelon)
- Lean Meats (Grilled Fish or Chicken)
- Fresh Vegetables and Fruits
