Acid reflux can be potentially dangerous if left untreated. Acid reflux can also be harmful to the esophageal lining, causing irritation, pain and damage. Chronic acid reflux sufferers may have several different things that produce acid reflux and heartburn. The objects that contribute the most to acid reflux are: tea, coffee, other drinks containing caffeine, chocolate, tomatoes, fried and fatty foods, alcohol, tobacco, large meals, eating before bedtime or late night eating, citrus fruits and juices and wearing tight clothes.

Foods that should be eaten rarely to avoid acid reflux are listed above and drinking alcohol also has adverse effects on acid reflux sufferers. Alcohol increases the production of stomach acid and relaxes the lower esophageal sphincter, allowing stomach contents to reflux into the esophagus.

Another factor that contributes to experiencing the symptoms of GERD or acid reflux is stress. Everyone has stress in their lives, but it must be managed in order to lead a healthy life without suffering from acid reflux symptoms.

Regular exercise is also helpful to individuals who need Houston treatment for acid reflux. It not only helps to relieve everyday stress, but also helps reduce acid reflux symptoms. Exercise releases endorphins, which make the acid reflux sufferer feel better and also aids with digestion.

Diet is critical and eating balanced, low-fat meals help with acid reflux. Avoid foods that cause acid reflux, but eat plenty of vegetables, fruits and fish. Smoking is another factor that worsens acid reflux symptoms.
