Heartburn Pregnant

Experiencing Heartburn While You Are Pregnant?

heartburn pregnant
Pregnancy heartburn happens. Many women tend to experience
heartburn symptoms when they are still carrying their babies,
and this happens for several reasons.

The increase of hormones in the women’s body while they are
pregnant can be part of the cause, causing heartburn when
pregnant. The occurrence of this will result in softening
the ligaments which function is to keep the lower esophageal
sphincter (LES) firmly closed.

When the LES relaxes at unsuitable times, such as eating,
this will let the gastric acid and food reflux back to
the esophagus and throat.

Also the development of the baby creates more pressure in
the your stomach area. Therefore, the stomach contents are
forced right into the LES, and then to the esophagus.

Pregnancy heartburn can be worked with. Avoiding certain foods
and eating lighter meals, but more often can help.

Acid Reflux Sore Throat

Acid Reflux Sore Throat

Can you get an acid reflux sore throat? The simple answer
is yes, and here is how it happens.

Acid reflux refers to the condition in which the partially
digested food containing digestive juices travels back into
the esophagus from the stomach.

Acid In The Esophagus

The stomach contents that moves back to the esophagus contains
digestive acids since they have undergone digestion in the
stomach where digestive liquids are released to bring about

Inflammation Develops

Because of the acidic nature of the refluxed materials,
inflammation develops in the lining of the throat; thus a sore
throat is one of the most common symptoms of this condition.

So as you can see, it is important to stop the acid reflux problem
as soon as possible so that the throat irritation and inflammation
do not continue.

Acid Reflux Cause

 Acid Reflux Cause

cause of acid reflux


Heartburn and acid reflux has to do with the
sphincter muscle between the lower esophagus
and upper stomach.So let's talk about the acid
reflux cause.

Your Digestive System

How the sphincter valve opens and closes, and the
strength or weakness of this valve is involved. The
normal position of this valve is closed position. This
is to keep stomach acid, food, and drink from
being regurgitated back up into the esophageal tube.

The whole digestive system begins at the mouth and
ends at the anus. When food is swallowed and enters
into the esophagus, it takes only a few seconds for
the food to be moved down into the stomach.

There are smooth muscles all along the esophagus that
quickly moves the food down. The one way valve at the
bottom automatically opens to allow the food into the
stomach. This valve is to instantly open and close tight
behind the exodus of food.

There is much more to be learned about relux and
heartburn, such as the cause of acid reflux, foods to
avoid and how to make diet adjustments with an acid reflux diet.

Reflux. So let’s discuss what kinds of foods cause acid reflux and some
ideas about the Acid Reflux foods to avoid.

Reflux Foods To Avoid

One of the biggest offenders to remove from your diet is processed
food. Between the acidity of the sugars and starches, your stomach
will often not digest well and churn out acids up your esophagus, if
you have acid reflux disease.

There are a number of foods that most people who want to follow
an acid reflux disease diet must remove from their selection of foods.

Acid reflux foods to avoid:

A partial list is pasta, plums, cranberries and cranberry juice, garlic,
black pepper, sweets and radishes.

And a favorite food to many that often cause problems with reflux
are chocolate and pepermint. Sorry, but it is best to avoid those.

In addition, some beverages are offenders. Tea, coffee, diet soft
drinks, soft drinks –all these drinks can add to your acid reflux
problem. So they need removed from your diet at least for now.

It is best to drink water. Most people do not drink enough water any
way. In addition, give Green tea a try. Green tea can aid digestion, so
it can settle the acid reflux down for many people. Ginger tea is also a
good remedy to soothe stomach problems and aid digestion. I have
taken both ginger tea straight and I can also buy herbal teas that have
ginger as part of the ingredients.
