Whenever you feel a burning sensation in the stomach, spreading to your throat, what you all blame is the food you have eaten. Heartburn is a condition that may occur in any person, irrespective of their age. It is not necessarily limited to old age people only; youngsters too get affected by it.
Before executing anything for your acidity treatment, it is important to understand what acidity is. You might have seen an ad showing up on television which telecasting a man with a screwed up face right after a heavy meal and his stomach is being shown up in flames. This is what we call a visualization of acidity.
The food pipe installed in our body system is a long narrow tube, which has a muscular ring called the esophagus orifice at the bottom. This makes a connection of the food pipe to the stomach. The ring allows the food to pass into the stomach and then shuts tight. If this does not shut the digestive juices and acids from the stomach as well as from the partly digested food flow up into the food pipe resulting in heartburn, pain, and irritation.
This can result in causing damage to the food pipelining which is very tender.
