Heartburn is a medical condition that is caused due to gastritis. This condition is not just common among pregnant women but also among other million people. The gastric acid enters the esophagus and burns the epithelial lining thus causing an acid reflux. This causes heartburn and an uncomfortable feeling in the chest & stomach. It is often characterised by burn and pain in the stomach or chest, bloating, gastric problems, sour taste in the throat and nausea. Heartburn is commonly caused due to the intake of some foods and beverages. For example, gastric foods and fried foods like burger, radish etc can cause heartburn. Though you can take some medications at home to cure heartburn but still consult a doctor if not cured. Heartburn can cause gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), a chronic condition that is harmful for your overall health.
Calcium rich foods like dairy products especially milk can also sooth a heartburn. Eat yoghurt or drink milk with 1 teaspoon honey to get instant relief from heartburn. Apple cider vinegar is another natural remedy that cures heartburn. You can add cider vinegar in your salad to get relief from acid reflux that causes heartburn.
