Heartburn or GERD can Kill

Heartburn is a common annoyance. The busy lifestyle, quick meals, fatty or spicy foods all contribute to the occasional need of a chewable pain reliever. The acceptance of heartburn as an inconvenient, but natural, part of the daily grind can blind you to the warning that a severe heartburn symptom can bring.

Heartburn as a Disorder

Heartburn can be a symptom as well as a disorder. Simple heartburn or GERD can be controlled and dealt with. However, heartburn can signal the presence of a much more serious problem. If it’s heartburn, you will have a burning sensation in the chest usually after eating. There may be a spread of the burning to the throat, sometimes accompanied by a bad taste, difficulty in swallowing, belching, coughing, hoarseness and/or wheezing.

It can become worse by lying down or bending over or by eating. Relief can come from an antacid. While the more severe heartburn symptoms may be mistaken for a heart attack, simple heartburn is usually not made worse by exercise. If there is any concern that the pain may signal a heart attack, get help quickly.

By Reagan Miers

Losing weight can be one of the most difficult goals that any individual will undertake. And yet if you find the right recipe to successful weight loss, the result is a healthier, fitter body and a better sense of self-confidence for you. I know because I've been there.

We have all seen and heard of numerous weight loss diets and programs which promise miraculous weight loss, and yet a lot of individuals are still fighting a battle against unwanted weight. Many have tried these programs and fallen off their weight loss track for many reasons including not having self discipline to keep going or when there weren't any encouraging visible results. For others, losing weight is diificult because they don't have any clear idea on how to lose weight and keep it off.

To successfully lose weight and become slimmer I have made a list of tips which can be of help. By trying a combination of these little secrets you will have the tools to start losing weight. These little known ways to losing weight successfully are:

1. Water, water, and more water

Water is one of the best drinks that you can have which will quench your thirst and also detoxify your body. Water also has the added bonus of filling you up like nothing else can. The next time you feel thirsty for some soda, you should instead refresh yourself with water.

2. Get Active.

No weight reduction product or program could ever be as successful as when partnered with an exercise routine that gets you up and moving. Brisk walking, jogging, doing sit-ups, and stretching are simple enough exercise activities but are a great way to start getting the excess weight off.

3. Healthy Meals.

In the battle to lose weight you might want to switch to a diet that is high in proteins and hold the carbs. Add fresh vegetables and fruits to give you a more balanced diet and one that will help you burn the fat. With healthy eating habits you will see the pounds melting away.

4. Keep a dairy.

Having a list of what you have accomplished so far in your weight loss targets will help you stick to your plan. When you have achieved significant milestones in your plan, write it down and reward yourself.

5. Be Busy

To have the body that you want, keep all distractions away by keeping busy with some tasks. Having some sort of task is one of the best ways to teach yourself healthier eating habits. By keeping yourself distracted you will not be tempted to eat when you shouldn't be eating.

6. Buy authentic weight loss items.

With authentic weight loss product such as diet supplements, a fitness plan, or even an exercise machine you can have safe, visible results and avoid disastrous side effects.

7. Keep focused on your goal.

No matter what you do, sticking to a task is difficult. This is very true when you want to lose weight. Don't try shortcuts and stick to the plan. The rewards for staying on track will be worth all of the sacrifices that you take.
