5 Steps to avoiding heartburn

1- Watch out for trouble foods that cause heartburn; alcohol, chocolate, fatty foods, mints, citris, coffee, and sodas. If you must have them take an antacid before you eat the trouble food.

2- Eating large meals can increase pressure on the stomach, which can cause acid to creep back up the esophagus. Try eating small, frequent meals.

3- Do not wear tight clothing around your abdomen.

4- Try not to bend over right after eating.

5- Wait a couple of hours after eating before you lie down.
