  • Understanding Heartburn

    Take a bite of warm, gooey pepperoni pizza, and your digestive system kicks into action. Acids tumble into the stomach, ready to break down your meal. In many people, a faulty valve-like structure lets these acids run amok, triggering a burning sensation in the chest. Heartburn is an extremely common symptom. More than 60 million Americans have heartburn at least once a month. The following slides examine where heartburn starts, and how it can be stopped.

  • Some tips to stop heartburn at night

    1. Prop Yourself Up for Better Sleep
    Heartburn waking you up at night? Lying down makes it easier for stomach acids to splash up into your esophagus. To keep acid down, use gravity. Place an extra pillow or two under your shoulders or use a wedge-shaped pillow to prop yourself up. Not enough? Boost the head of your bed 6-8 inches with wood blocks secured under the bedposts. Sleeping on your left side can also help digestion.

  • How to handle your heartburn

    1. Chew Gum for Heartburn
    Research shows that, for many people with heartburn, chewing non-mint, sugarless gum for 30 minutes after a meal reduces the risk of heartburn. Chewing gum may increase swallowing, thus helping wash acid out of the esophagus.
