Heartburn can be prevented by avoiding tight clothing and getting rid of excess weight. This was told by a doctor and TV presenter Alexander Myasnikov on the TV channel “Russia 1”.
The specialist explained that in obese people with a stomach, the diaphragm is high and the stomach is incorrectly located. This causes acid to reflux into the esophagus.
Heartburn can also appear during sleep. In this case, the doctor recommended removing low pillows.
Alternative methods of getting rid of heartburn with the use of soda, the doctor does not recommend using.
According to him, frequent use of soda can adversely affect the kidneys, since they are responsible for the acid-base balance.
