Gastroesophageal reflux disease for many
reasons, but mainly because of lower esophageal sphincter function impairment
or other reasons occurred on the lower esophageal sphincter causing damage,
whether to eat or drink should have this change. Lower esophageal
sphincter relaxation, stress reduction, the stomach into the esophagus, the
food will rise to reflux; esophageal acid clearance capacity in itself a
problem, esophageal motility problems, may cause reflux; delayed gastric
emptying, normal is 4-5 hours,
such as the occurrence of delayed gastric emptying, the patient will always
feel full, when stomach pressure increases, it can trigger reflux. Things as acid
reflux, pepsin, intestinal bile, pancreatic, esophageal mucosa of these on will
cause varying degrees of damage.
What are the symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux?
Heartburn and acid
reflux are the most common symptoms of the digestive disease. Which can cause
esophageal inflammation, the esophageal mucosa of patients will be damaged too, the symptoms will produce light mucosal
erosion or edema, or even cause ulcers or bleeding of the digestive tract under
severe cases. A few patients may have Barrett’s esophagus, a condition in which
the tissue lining the esophagus is replaced by tissue that is similar to the
lining of the intestine. Barrett’s esophagus is a precancerous lesion, because
patients with Barrett’s esophagus are 30 to 50 times easier to have esophageal
cancer than other people.
In recent years, gastroesophageal reflux disease is
becoming a very common type of disease, but it is also easy to be confused with
other diseases, for example, ulcer patients also have these symptoms, but their
main symptom is pain, and people who are having chest pain will likely to think

Home remedies for acid reflux chest pain
1, Avoid irritating
foods and promote secretion of gastric juice
For the prevention of
acid reflux, patients should avoid eating gastric secretion stimulating foods
such as celery, leek, seaweed, concentrated fruit juice, pepper, mustard, hard
liquor, strawberry,etc., these are all not appropriate for eating. In addition, dessert and sweet potatoes are
also easy to produce acid in the stomach, they should be avoided too.
2, Do not eat raw foods and non-digestible foods
To prevent acid reflux,
patients should avoid eating raw, cold and non-digestible foods, the foods should be soft and easy to digest, to
reduce the burden on the stomach.
3, Eat small meals, eat
slowly by chewing food thoroughly
Patient should have a balanced
diet in the right amount, eat less and have more meals to reduce the
stimulation of gastric acid. In addition, patient should develop an eating habit of
chewing food thoroughly. Research suggests that in the process of chewing, our mouth
will produce a lot of saliva, the saliva contains a variety of digestive
enzymes to help digest food and absorb nutrients.
4, Drink milk, eat biscuits
and other foods
For those who have stomach pains or burning sensation
at night, drinking some warm milk before bedtime is a good choice. In
addition, Eaing soda crackers and toasted bread slice have certain benefits in
reducing the secretion of gastric acid, which is also great alternatives.
5, Ensure enough intake
of protein and vegetable fat
Our daily diet should contain
enough nutrients, such as protein and easily digestible vegetable fats.Because proteins can neutralize stomach acid, fat can
stimulate the small intestine mucosa, producing enterogastrone that inhibits gastric
secretion and gastric motility, which is beneficial to prevent acid reflux.
