It’s an uncomfortable and painful health issue – acid reflux. When the lower esophageal sphincter decides it doesn’t want to close all of the way when food passes through it, ultimately resulting in the acid produced by your stomach moving up into your esophagus, according to WebMD.

It’s important to educate yourself on the causes of acid reflux, so that you can avoid encountering the symptoms. For instance, never lie down right after eating a meal, stop smoking, don’t drink caffeine, and stay away from certain foods such as tomatoes and chocolate.
