Remedy for Acid Reflux

Singapore is a food heaven for many. As a melting pot in Asia, many of these foods adapt the use of herbs, spices, chilly and coconut in their ingredient. These food may not go down well with some who have a weak stomach. With the array of food available, many succumb to eating more than what their body needs. Hours after their heavy meal, they sometimes felt an unpleasant taste in their mouth, which are actually affects of acid indigestion, as they get a gastric like tightness and feel unwell.

Having said that, I remembered how often I had these symptoms during my last trimester in my pregnancy. My gynaecologist said it is very common during pregnancies but do happen to those who do not watch their diet, eating lifestyle or eating certain foods. Some of these unfortunate incidents lead to a term called Acid Reflux Disease. He also advised that those who had experienced it should understand that some of these symptoms if not cared for may lead to more serious conditions such as esophageal ulcers and esophageal cancer. It is important not to take them lightly and know what are the dangers and also what are the remedy one can do to avoid them. For more information about Acid Reflux and treatments, is a helpful guide.
