Survey Reveals Heartburn Sufferers Experience More Heartburn During the Holidays

National Heartburn Alliance Helps to Educate During Heartburn Awareness

Month

CHICAGO, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Heartburn remains a burning problem for more than 60 million Americans each month(1) and this November, the National Heartburn Alliance (NHBA) is recognizing the need for heartburn education by helping sufferers learn about treatment options and lifestyle changes during Heartburn Awareness Month in November.

The NHBA conducted its annual survey to gauge consumer habits to help determine the activities that are most responsible for heartburn during the holiday months. The 2008 survey* results show that nearly 40 percent of people experience an increase in heartburn symptoms during the season and an overwhelming 53 percent of people said they would enjoy the holidays more if they didn't have to worry about heartburn.

"November is a perfect time for heartburn sufferers and health care professionals to address heartburn, because more people tend to over-indulge in holiday meals," says Pat Baird, registered dietitian and NHBA Board member. "By incorporating lifestyle changes into their diets, heartburn sufferers can learn to alleviate symptoms so they can enjoy the holidays."

Lifestyle tips from Pat include:

-- Don't overindulge. Allow yourself to eat your favorite holiday foods, but try smaller portions. Keep in mind that too much of a good thing can lead to heartburn.

-- Avoid heartburn triggers. Red wine, foods with high fat content, and spices are just a few common heartburn triggers.

-- Control late night munchies. Try not to eat late at night or right before going to bed to decrease your chances of suffering from nighttime heartburn.

-- Keep your cool. Stress levels tend to increase during the holidays. Relax by taking a few moments for yourself each day. Consider taking a 10- minute walk after a holiday dinner for some stress-free quite time.
