Remedies, treatments and care for Heartburn


Heartburn is an uncomfortable burning sensation right behind the breastbone that often times creeps up the throat. It is caused by acid reflux, which occurs when the ring of muscle that allows food into your stomach (the lower esophageal sphincter, or LES) relaxes when it shouldn?t. The result is acid from your stomach goes back up your esophagus, which then causes the sensation of heartburn.
