Stress-Induced Heartburn Is A Real Problem

By Keira Adams

Getting your stress in check is essential for your health if you would like to relieve your chronic heartburn symptoms. Scientists aren’t yet in a position to make a direct link between stress and heartburn, but they do feel confident that there’s an indirect relationship.

Stress makes us overeat, particularly foods that aren’t healthy, sleep poorly and give in to unhealthy habits like cigarettes and alcohol. These things will all add up to pain if they lead to heartburn.

If chronic heartburn is a problem for you, you should look closely at the stressors in your life so you can get rid of them. Is it a personal relationship? Your job? Finances or being over-scheduled? All of this can increase your stress levels and trigger heartburn if it causes you to make poor lifestyle choices.

As you begin to understand the situations that are causing your discomfort, you are in a better position to avoid chronic heartburn by alleviating your stress levels. Could you sign up for counseling or carve some time out for yourself to relax and enjoy life a bit more?

Oftentimes you can lower your stress levels, and ultimately find relief for your heartburn problem, by improving your life in certain areas. Find time for exercise each day if you don’t already. This might make it easier lose weight, too, which should help reduce your heartburn symptoms if you’re overweight.

If relaxation is the solution, meditation and massage are both good choices to help you calm down. Although these activities might not directly relieve your heartburn, they can slow the pace of your life and let you relax and enjoy a lifestyle which can reduce the frequency of heartburn attacks.

You might just need to pop in a relaxing CD and let the soothing music calm your mind for a while each day. This can prevent you from overeating, drinking alcohol, or smoking.

If you would rather replace your bad habits with something positive, try learning how to laugh more. Lift your mood and lose stress by finding things that amuse you and help you let go of life’s troubles.
