Reduce Heartburn

Lifestyle Habits to Reduce Heartburn:

 

  • Don’t eat for two to three hours before going to bed.
  • Keep portions small ½ -1 cup of food at a time and don’t drink for at least 30 minutes after eating.
  • Eat slowly and calmly. Put your fork down between bites.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing.
  • Stay away from foods and beverages that trigger your heartburn symptoms. More common foods/beverages include onions, peppermint, chocolate, caffeinated drinks, coffee, citrus fruits or juices, tomatoes, high-fat foods and spicy foods.
  • Don’t smoke or be around others who are smoking.
  • Avoid alcohol.
  • Place a six-inch block under the bed posts to raise the head of your bed. Don’t pile on the pillows–you’ll increase the pressure on your stomach.
