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.

Fall Wedding Bouquets - 3 Tips For Choosing The Best Colors For A Spectacular Wedding Day

By John Jay Amarant

Fall is a great time to get married. You will have the glow of summer skin and the opportunity for a truly impressive wedding day. Fall is full of beautiful colors which combine fabulously against the white or ivory of a wedding dress.

Remember that wraps, shawls and dress accessories can also be coordinated with your bouquet when you have decided on the color theme.

1. The color of your flowers - People often think of spring colors when they are deciding on the color for their wedding bouquets, but red is the established color of romance! This association makes red a great base color for a fall wedding. The red can be mixed with deep oranges and saffron colored flowers and rich green leaves to form a warm romantic bouquet.

2. Getting The Most From The Color Of Your Ribbons - For wedding bouquets which are darker colors it can be a nice idea to lighten up the bouquet with a careful choice of ribbon. Consider a bouquet of red and saffron held in green leaves - now add a gold ribbon and you soon see how much you can add to the impact of your wedding bouquet with a good choice of ribbon.

3. Continuous Color Theme - Colors are an important part of any wedding and continuing the theme always looks impressive. If you are having brides maids you can have a gold hair ribbon to match your wedding bouquet ribbon, or perhaps a gold edged ring cushion to be carried up the isle.

To continue your chosen color theme through to the reception can be quite subtle and still spectacular. Think about matching the napkins to the ribbon of your bouquet, or the table flowers to your bouquet. Simple, but very effective.

Nature has provided all the colors you need for a beautiful fall wedding. These rich, warm colors will fill your day with romance and atmosphere.

If you aren't sure where to start, pull out a few magazines from autumn and look at the colors used in the photo shoots, also make time to check out haberdashery departments as these are full of inspiring color combinations.
