Foods with excess fat, sauces, or spiciness increase the production of acid in the stomach.
As a result of poor nutrition, acidity appears. This occurs when there is a weakness in the closing mechanism between the esophagus and the stomach, so the contents of the stomach go up into the esophagus and into the mouth.
Gastro-esophageal reflux disease is considered one of the main causes for attending medical consultations. The first step is clinical review, but often an endoscopy is needed to determine damage to the digestive tract.
The constant passage of stomach acid into the esophagus can cause inflammation, which ultimately causes a change in the esophageal mucosa, and may even cause cancer.
Although for many it is a difficult task, when there are acidity problems, doctors recommend drastically reducing the consumption of fried foods, highly seasoned foods or high-fat treats. You should also consume enough water.
