Most people put a lot of sugar, caffeine and salt into their bodies on a daily basis. It’s cheap and easy to drink lots of soda pop and eat potato chips. Go to any gas station convenience store and you’ll be surrounded by foods and drinks that have the potential to agitate your digestive system.
When you eat food, it gets to your stomach via the esophagus, also known as the swallowing tube. There’s a sphincter muscle located between the bottom of the esophagus and the stomach, and if it doesn’t close well, stuff from the stomach can essentially leak into the esophagus. You know what that means? You get heartburn and/or nausea after eating. Other symptoms of “gastro reflux disease” include throwing up, coughing, hiccups, sore throats and more. Not fun.
