Home Remedies for Heartburn

Heartburn is a very common and unpleasant symptom characterized by a burning sensation in your chest. It happens when stomach acid backs up into your esophagus, so the pain often spread to the throat. The term heartburn is commonly used interchangeably with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), as it is its main cause, but you can also suffer GERD without this symptom. However, this condition must be treated because frequent heartburn can lead to long-term problems and damages your esophagus. Other causes of heartburn are bad eating habits, stress, pregnancy and alcohol consumption. You should bear in mind that, if you have this symptom with too much frequency, it could be a stomach ulcer. Furthermore, if you have more serious symptoms, such as a crushing chest pain, go and see a doctor, as it could be a heart attack.Here you have several home remedies to fight heartburn:
