The stomach digests food with the help of stomach acid. The too frequent reflux of stomach acid into the esophagus is called heartburn. This causes symptoms such as acidic burps, a burning sensation just above the stomach, an irritated throat, coughing, the feeling of a lump in the throat, belching, swallowing difficulties, hoarseness, and poor dental health. This is not due to an excess of stomach acid but is influenced by other factors such as lifestyle.



A dietitian can help determine what in the diet may trigger or worsen the symptoms. Additionally, a dietitian can provide guidance for those with high body weight or constipation. This causes increased pressure in the abdominal cavity, which in turn increases the risk of heartburn.
