Ever experienced the sharp pain in the stomach and a burning sensation going all the way up to your chest, as if your body is on fire – is the acid reflux in your body. A condition where the acid in the stomach moves to the Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES) – a valve at the stomach entrance – because the valve did not close at all or opened too often while it should have closed as soon as the food passed through it. This irregular digestive process creates acid reflux in the body causing severe burning sensation in the stomach.
This burning sensation could be a result of large meals, lying down after meals, overweight, bedtime snacking, alcohol, carbonated drinks, coffee, tea, smoking, pregnancy, as well as certain medicines and food such as citrus, tomato, chocolate, garlic, onions, or oily and spicy items. While there are multiple over-the-counter drugs available to treat acid reflux, you should try Gas-O-Fast that are made of Ayurvedic ingredients and help to remove acidity problems from the root. You can combine these few home remedies for acid reflux with Gas-O-Fast and get permanent relief from stomach burning.
