Controlling heartburn

Whatson-Guide-225-x125 – 2

Heartburn is a very common condition affecting up to one in four adults in the UK.

For some it’s an occasional nuisance, for others it can be a regular problem that interrupts day-to-day life. Commonly felt as a burning sensation in the chest, it’s caused by stomach acid traveling up towards the throat (acid reflux) – symptoms are often worse after eating when bending over or lying down.2

It can be triggered by certain food and drink, being overweight, smoking and pregnancy. Stress and anxiety have also been linked.

With a heightened sense of improving health and wellbeing at this time of year, try tackling those stress-related symptoms with activities such as yoga, meditation, a simple walk, or swimming.
