In Western Medicine
U.S. studies reported a rising number of obese people suffering from gastroesophageal reflux in the past two decades. An abundance of food, lack of exercise and stress can contribute to the development of obesity, which increases the chance gastroesophageal reflux. Also various lifestyle and dietary factors can contribute to heartburn. The dietary factors include eating large portions, eating just before bedtime, intake of certain foods and beverages, namely onions, chocolate, peppermint, high-fat or spicy foods, citrus juices, alcohol, caffeinated drinks, and carbonated drinks.
Heartburn has nothing to do with the heart, but the symptoms can feel like a heart attack.
Heartburn is characterized by recurrent symptoms caused by the liquid content inside the stomach backing up into the esophagus.
In TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine)
TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) considers Stomach Qi (chi) uprising to be caused by either Heat or Cold influences. Heat comes mostly from the Liver. Cold is either caused by coldness in the Middle Burner or a pre-existing deficiency Cold. Eating too much Yin type food, which is synonymous with the cold property, increases the Stomach Cold Qi(chi) uprising. Emotions and other factors such as diet, lifestyle, environmental and hereditary factors also contribute to the development of imbalances that cause Heartburn.
