Acid reflux is a common condition in which stomach acid regurgitates through a patient’s esophagus, causing a sensation in the chest that’s commonly referred to as heartburn. Symptoms can vary and be treated with medicine, but sufferers should be aware of possible triggers, such as certain foods and types of clothing.
We recently received this question from a viewer:
Dear Dr. Manny,
I have been suffering from acid reflux for a while now, and I am sick of taking antacids. Is there anything else preventative that I can do for relief?
