Learn the Right Moves for Avoiding Acid Reflux Symptoms

Have you ever noticed that your acid reflux symptoms get worse in certain positions?

 

Do you wonder why this happens? Choosing the right activities and positions at the right times can help to minimize painful acid reflux.

 

Acid reflux symptoms often flare up at bedtime. This has to do with the position your body is in. Lying down after a meal puts pressure in the wrong direction on your lower esophageal sphincter (LES), which is responsible for keeping your food in your stomach. Taking the right digestive enzyme can eliminate this problem because your food is processed more efficiently.

 

Intensive exercise, especially something like running, too soon after a meal can also put the wrong kind of pressure on the LES. With all the up-and-down, bouncing movements sloshing your stomach contents back up against a weak LES and into the esophagus. Likewise, bending over too deeply, or other forms of inversion like those practiced in yoga, can also make acid come back up.

 

Dr. Marina Rose has helped people with acid reflux and other challenging, chronic health conditions in and around the city of San Francisco, CA.

 

Planning your day so that you have two and a half to three hours between dinner and bedtime will help you digest your food before lying down puts pressure on the LES, as Dr. Andrew Weil agrees. Likewise, waiting a few hours between a meal and a workout will also help reduce acid reflux symptoms caused by pressure on the LES created during activity.
