  • Anything inherently acidic in nature like alcoholic beverages or fatty foods that trigger your body to produce more acids in your stomach will cause the discomfort.

  2. 2. Identifying Your Acid Reflux Triggers Have you ever experienced a burning sensation that runs from your stomach pit to your esophagus? Did you ever wonder how it happened and what triggered these “after –meals” sensation? This painful regurgitation is what we call Acid Reflux, or more commonly known as heartburn.
  3. 3. Acid Reflux Triggers From time to time, people experience such sensation due to the acid reflux triggers. They are the ones responsible for the so- called burning sensation from the inside. The acid reflux triggers come in different forms and may be difficult to distinguish since there is no common symptom for everybody. Thus, trial and error should be done to clearly identify the indicators which generate heartburn.
  4. 4. Causes of Heartburn Heartburn can be rooted to various factors. The acid reflux triggers include certain foods, body positioning, obesity, and lifestyle habits such as cigarette smoking. Again, determining which factor causes the symptoms to occur may be done by checking and eliminating which precipitates the onset of the symptoms.
  5. 5. Pinpointing the Acid Reflux Triggers Since there are varying causes of heartburn, it would be helpful to have a checklist of the ingested foods of the day. If the food taken can be associated with the reflux events, then most probably this is what triggers your heartburn. Carefully and noticeably, you try ingesting one kind of food per meal and see if it causes the warning signs to reappear.
  6. 6. A Smoker Experiencing Heartburn Also, if you are a smoker experiencing heartburn, it would be favorable to discontinue smoking and see if the accompanying indicators of heartburn stop. Upright positioning for two to three hours after meals may also be helpful in preventing the reflux of food from the stomach. Thus, a way to identifying your acid reflux triggers may mean keeping a daily journal of what you eat and do and how you feel afterwards.
  7. 7. Avoiding Acid Reflux Triggers The avoiding part comes last and the hardest of all. Most of the foods causing heartburn are the ones that pleases our mouth; thus, making it hard for people to avoid. However, we must remember the good that it brings if we can have full control over ourselves.
  8. 8. Most Fast Foods Most fast foods should be avoided since they contain a high amount of fat and oil, making them a very good candidate for an acid reflux trigger. Caffeinated beverages, citrus fruits and juices should also be removed from the diet since they are potential acid builders in the stomach. Spicy foods are also stomach irritants and should be undoubtedly exterminated from the diet.
  9. 9. Health Is Wealth Clearly, a number of ways can help solve the acid reflux problem. Determination, control over oneself and the will to stay healthy are needed to keep you focused on your goal. Believing that health is wealth can also be an unrelenting motivational factor to guide you in achieving wellness.
