The number of weekly heartburn sufferers has increased by almost 50% in the past ten years alone. If you’re one of the millions of Americans that suffer from this painful condition then you might be trying to find a way to stop it. If you’re looking for a heartburn doctor, we can help! The Gut Authority can get to the root cause of your heartburn so that we can do more than just reduce your symptoms.

What Is Heartburn?

Heartburn, otherwise known as indigestion, causes a painful burning sensation typically after eating. Unlike acid reflux, the pain and symptoms of heartburn aren’t chronic and are milder. Symptoms usually include:

  • Sour taste in the mouth
  • Acid reflux like irritation
  • Sensation of burning in the chest
  • Trouble sleeping due to the pain
  • Gum irritation or bleeding
  • Dry mouth
  • Bad breath
  • Bloating or burping after meals

In some instances, heartburn can also cause nausea and loss of appetite.

What Causes It?

Heartburn can be traced back to poor gut health. While most think it’s caused by too much stomach acid or spicy foods, poor gut health leads to too little stomach acid which then produces heartburn and slow digestion. This can also prevent the food in your stomach from digesting and it will ferment and rot causing you heartburn.

Ways that The Gut Authority Can Help You

Since heartburn is a common symptom of poor gut function, we’ll address your overall gut health. Many people try to use over-the-counter medications for occasional heartburn symptoms, such as chest pain. Which can help, but in order to get to the root cause? You need a specialist to look at you. We’ll take a look at your lifestyle as well as your food choices. Common triggers of heartburn include unhealthy foods, stress, and food allergies. After we address your overall body health, then we’ll come up with a plan to help heal your gut and restore body balance. Lifestyle changes such as trying to avoid foods that irritate you, reducing stress, or increasing fitness levels can help you feel healthier.
