If you suffer from frequent heartburn and can't get a handle on why, keep a journal and track your triggers. Write down every time you get heartburn so you can determine what caused it. Was it that extra cup of coffee in the morning or the slice of pepperoni pizza you devoured late last night? Did a meeting with your boss stress you out? Stress can cause heartburn so know your stressors and work to avoid them. A walk at lunchtime can relieve stress and aid the digestive tract—double defense against heartburn!
