Many of us suffer from digestive disorders such as heartburn & indigestion, due to daily stress, heavy meals or simply during pregnancy. Though not life threatening, it significantly affects the quality of life due to its effect on sleep patterns and daily activities.
Heartburn occurs when the lower oesophageal sphincter is not functioning properly, so a small amount of stomach acid flows backwards and burns the lining of your oesophagus, the tube that carries food from your mouth to your stomach. Unlike the stomach, the oesophagus has no natural protection from the acid of your stomach contents, which results in a burning sensation, regurgitation of acid into your mouth and throat, cough, laryngitis or chest pain. That is also why repeated and excessive acid refluxes can damage the lining of your oesophagus, which may lead to more severe health problems.
