Acid reflux occurs when acid from the stomach travels into the food pipe. When the acid reaches the food pipe it can cause irritation and a burning sensation in the chest area. 

Acid reflux commonly occurs as a result of poor diet. Reflux can commonly occur when you eat too quickly or lay down directly after eating. If you find that you’re suffering from acid reflux more than once or twice a week, you could be suffering from GERD, which is a more severe version of reflux.

GERD stands for gastroesophageal reflux disease. This takes place when the lower esophageal sphincter doesn’t tighten. As a result of this, the contents inside the stomach rise up towards the esophagus.

If your acid reflux keeps persisting consider changing your lifestyle. Altering your diet can improve your health immensely. Keeping track of your dietary choices is a beneficial way to find out exactly what types of food and drinks are causing the reflux.

What Causes Acid Reflux?

Coffee is a naturally acidic beverage and for some, it can create acid reflux. If you have a coffee addiction and struggle to quit try cold brew or dark roast, these are less acidic and will lower the chances of reflux.

Foods high in fat are one of the main contributors to acid reflux. To avoid acid reflux you want to eliminate fatty foods. Cut out junk food and fried food which contain harmful toxins and increases the acidity in the body. Switching to a vegetarian diet is what Ayurclinic recommends for reducing acid reflux.

Smoking acid reflux Ayurclinic Melbourne

Hyperacidity is closely linked to nicotine. Nicotine relaxes the muscle that is supposed to tighten in order for acid to remain in the stomach. Smoking also causes the mouth to create less saliva which results in acid reflux.

Alcohol Acid Reflux Ayurclinic Melbourne Alcohol

Wine and beer are the two major alcoholic beverages that will contribute to acid reflux. In mentioning this, acid reflux varies between people and won’t apply to everyone who drinks alcohol.
