There are however, other solutions, natural remedies and things you can do to prevent, or relieve symptoms quickly and without having to take medication.

What is Acid reflux disease and heartburn?

What causes heartburn are usually factors such as stress, over eating, eating certain foods or a combination along with smoking, caffeine, citrus fruits and drinks, tomato products, fatty or spicy foods. Heartburn symptoms are a mild or intense burning in the chest along with a sour or bitter taste in the mouth and throat. Acid reflux disease is a continuation of this involving the contents of the stomach reaching the throat and not completely returning to the stomach. These actions can cause the erosion of the lining in the throat.

Sounds just about as bad as it feels, luckily there are some ways you can help prevent and relieve your heartburn and acid reflux symptoms. There are quite a number of them out there so experimenting with each until you find the one that works best for you might be necessary.
