Control your stress
Finally, another critical risk factor you need to avoid is excessive stress. You have probably noticed that your heartburn episodes usually appear when you’re feeling stressed or anxious. Therefore, learning some meditation and relaxation techniques, practicing yoga and self-awareness might be one of the things you need to take a break from work and control your daily stress.
These home remedies and prevention strategies are often discussed in your doctor’s office. You will also get a physical exam and lab tests if your physician considers them necessary. So, if you’re getting acid reflux symptoms frequently, don’t delay your next check-up, especially if this is the second time in one week.
