Heartburn, a feeling of burning behind the breastbone caused by a regurgitation of stomach acid, is often a result of stress and the consumption of spicy or irritating foods.
Treatment Plan for Heartburn
A whole foods diet emphasizing whole grains and steamed vegetables, avoiding irritating foods and protein foods is recommended. A bland diet is recommended if symptoms are persistent. An herbal program can include relaxing herbs and stomach-soothing herbs and centaury to improve digestive function.
