Hello Ocha, Thank you for the question.
Heartburn is a broad term, which describes symptoms due to disorders in the digestive tract. Heartburn can be caused by various disorders of the digestive tract such as inflammation of the stomach, peptic ulcers, stomach acid disease, pancreatitis, inflammation of the bile, and others.
If you experience a burning sensation to the chest, then maybe these symptoms are caused by stomach acid disease. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is another name for stomach acid disease, which is a condition where stomach acid returns to the esophagus because the muscles in the lower esophagus are weakened. Symptoms that can be experienced by sufferers are heartburn or chest pain that feels burning, nausea, vomiting, flatulence, frequent belching, shortness of breath, a lump in the throat, coughing.
Several studies have shown the benefits of pace / noni / noni fruit to overcome gastric inflammation and help increase the number of good bacteria in the stomach so that it can prevent the bacterial infection of Helicobacter pylori which often causes stomach problems. However, research in humans is still very limited in number so further research is needed on these benefits in humans. Therefore, if you want to consume this product, make sure you consult directly with your doctor.
To overcome GERD, in addition to stomach acid regulating drugs, some other treatments you can take are:
Avoid consuming large portions of food, it is recommended to consume smaller but more frequent meals
avoid consuming spicy, sour, oily, and fatty foods
avoid consuming caffeinated, fizzy, and alcoholic drinks
avoid lying down after eating
food consumption at the latest 3 hours before going to bed at night
sleep in a rather high pillow position
lose weight if you have excess weight
manage stress well
You can also try to consume antacids that are sold freely at pharmacies when symptoms appear. However, if you have taken antacids and tried the above recommendations for 3 days and you are still experiencing symptoms that interfere, you can consult with the nearest GP so that you can do more examinations further before giving appropriate treatment. Hope it helps.
