WHAT IS ACID REFLUX:

Heartburn is a burning feeling in the chest caused by stomach acid travelling up towards the throat know as acid reflux. If it keeps happening, it’s called gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD in the UK) or (GERD in the USA).


Acid reflux is very common in fact 1 in 10 people get acid reflux almost every day! In this weeks video I’m going to give you some great tips that should really help.


MAIN SYMPTOMS OF ACID REFLUX:

• Heartburn – a burning sensation in the middle of your chest

• An unpleasant sour taste in your mouth, caused by stomach acid


You may also have:

• Cough or hiccups that keep coming back

• Hoarse voice

• Bad breath

• Wind, Bloating and feeling sick

• Your symptoms will probably be worse after eating, when lying down and when bending over.
