Solutions for Acid Reflux




Heartburn, indigestion and acid reflux can all occur when the acid in your stomach goes back up the esophagus, leading to a painful and burning sensation. This can occur during pregnancy, wearing tight fitted clothing, smoking, alcohol, caffeine, eating large meals in one sitting or medications, due to increased acid secretions or pressures on the stomach.


How can I relieve these symptoms? 

  • Limit caffeinated beverages, alcohol, high fat and/or spicy foods, these can worsen symptoms. 
  • Eat small frequent meals to minimise overfilling the stomach
  • Separate food and fluids. Drink ~30 minutes before and after a meal
  • Focus on posture. Avoid lying down straight after eating a meal
  • Allow more time to eat and chew foods slowly.
