Do you suffer from heartburn? 103FM’s expert dietitian, Dr. Maya Roseman, referred to a painful problem that many suffer from, and so she described it: “The feeling that food goes up, so to speak, after a meal.” Most of us define the phenomenon as “heartburn,” but very few know why it Occurs – and more importantly, what can be done to stop the feeling?
First, Rozman calmed down, saying in her opening remarks: “It happens to a lot of people, and sometimes it happens for many, many years.” The dietitian gave some theoretical background on the phenomenon: “What we need to know is that we have a sphincter between the esophagus and stomach, a type of muscle that opens when food passes, and closes immediately when food enters the stomach. It prevents the acid from rising up. The acids in the stomach can go up. “
“Hormones for example, like estrogen during pregnancy, cause this muscle not to close well and then in pregnancy there is a lot more heartburn,” she further explained about the causes. “There are also foods that weaken the closure of this bracket, which is for example, chocolate, mint, coffee and also fatty foods and especially fried foods. If there are a lot of heartburn and reflux, you should reduce their consumption a bit and test the effect.”
“You should eat small meals,” Roseman advised listeners. “Once you eat a very large meal, this bracket is harder to close,” she added: “Do not drink with the food so as not to dilute the food, because if it is thin it is easier for it to rise above than food that is very solid.”
