Our stomach secretes acid all the day to help digestion.It is very mild acid and does not cause any burning effect on stomach.If it secretes in more amount or aggravated by spicy oily food, then it causes corrosive effect on stomach and gives burning sensation in the stomach which is called Hyper acidity or heart burn.

In acid reflux you feel burning sensation on upper abdomen,nauseating feeling,some thing coming out from stomach to mouth.

To prevent acid reflux you observe following things.

1, avoid spicy and more oily things.
2,avoid junk food.
3,avoid over eating.
4,smoking and alcohol and tobacco strictly to be stopped.
5, take your night meal early and not at late night.
6,After your two principle meal do not sleep for some time and have some walk in your room.
7, Take enough milk and buttermilk and plenty of liquids.

Observe all these things in your daily life and remain fit.

This will satisfy your query, any other query or doubt please feel free to ask.

With regards.

For heart burn she is not be worried,change food habit as I have described.

Take some antacid tablets like Gelusil. You can take Omeprazole 40mg in the morning before breakfast for two weeks and see a doctor about revision.

One thing you can do is,take ECG to rule out cardiac element as many a time heart element gives similar symptoms like heart burn.

Hope I answered it.

Wish you Good Health
