Heartburn is recognized by a persistent burning sensation & pain in the chest behind the breastbone & in the stomach. Stomach acids that are normally kept
down by the esophageal sphincter muscle are allowed to rise during heartburn, contributing to the discomfort. If this is the main problem, the condition is often referred to as gastrointestinal reflux disease. Heartburn can also be the result of too little acid. The suggestions herein are meant to assist with the discomfort & aid digestion.
