The first explanation for the cause of acid reflux condition is due to the dysfunctional capacity of the Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES) resulting to the acidic contents of the stomach to be regurgitated back into the esophagus, which results in a painful burning sensation called heartburn. Heartburn is a painful or burning sensation in the esophagus, caused by regurgitation of gastric acid. One thing for sure, it is not a heart condition. It’s just felt on the breastbone near the heart but it’s never a cardiac matter.

Regardless of what we eat, there’s always the good and the bad consequence. If we tend to eat so much junk foods then what do we get out of that? As it's often said, living in the new world entails eating more packaged and processed food than the stomach can digest. We tend to eat more than what we can digest. As a result, waste builds up causing gastric spasms or twitching that increases stomach gas that pops open the LES valve between the esophagus and stomach sending acidic contents up the esophagus.Alcohol drinking, smoking and eating acidic foods can also pull the trigger.

Heartburn brought about acid reflux can be completely cured by using natural techniques .You don’t have to constantly rely on your doctor’s heartburn medication prescription. Antacids also have side effects and if prolonged use can cause malabsorption of nutrients. To relieve heartburns the natural way, try these simple heartburn home remedies.
