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.

Ultra Sensible Dining For A Ultra Sensible Home

By John Jones

If you?ll notice, most of us are beginning to be health conscious. We often take time to check if the foods that we?re eating are baked or fried. Some are after if it?s sugar-free or fat-free, or maybe it?s on low carbohydrates or not. However, we might not see it but we are just starting to ask the question, is this food healthy?

Surely, when you ask anyone, they wanted something that?s healthy, but the problem is on how you can get these kinds of foods when most of the restaurants you see outside are fast foods. And those who can serve you healthy foods would cost much more compared to their usual menu which is either fried to the deepest amount of oils, or foods that were frozen for hours or even days that its freshness has been long gone.

I think people just have to put some of their time to be able to prepare good foods. You might find it hard at first but surely, when you?re starting to feel healthy, it would be as easy as your everyday ordinary meal.

This is why cooking good foods is important. And for you to make that you must first consider what a healthy food should be.

Cooked foods are still healthy food, its how you cook them that matters. For example, steamed fish is much healthier than fried fish. Or may be you are the type of person who loves to eat French fries with a can of soda, so why not get some potatoes, bake them at home and have some fresh fruit juice. By doing so, you saved your self from too much oil intake.

Most people would say that cooking is for everyone, but not everyone can cook. And I think that those who believe in this just simply hate cooking. So they just gave up right away and didn?t bother trying.

If you notice, people nowadays are starting to be aware of their well being, its true that doing exercise may help you stay fit and healthy but most especially it?s the food that you eat. I know some people who invest on expensive cook wares because they believe that it?s healthier to cook their foods using those compared to ordinary cook wares. Example would be using non-stick frying pans or those that doesn?t need oil when cooking.

So needless to say, healthy life needs healthy foods. So if you want to save yourself from spending too much for being hospitalized and getting medications start a healthy diet now and remember to cook the right way. After all, when you?re healthy, you?ll live longer and enjoy life with your loved ones.
