Medical and Food Experts Provide Tips to Help Manage Your Frequent Heartburn


WEBWIRE – Tuesday, January 21, 2014

CINCINNATI - According to the University of Scranton, each year 45% of Americans make a New Year’s resolution and only 8% successfully achieve their goal*. Prilosec OTC wants to help Hispanic Americans stay on track with their resolutions while keeping frequent heartburn symptoms at bay. Celebrity chef and nutritionist, Chef LaLa, and medical expert, Dr. Jorge Rodriguez, are sharing health and nutrition tips to assist you in managing your frequent heartburn, leaving more time to focus on more important things like enjoying time with friends or kick starting new and healthy lifestyle choices.

Dr. Jorge Rodriguez is no stranger to debunking heartburn myths, educating his patients on what really causes heartburn, and providing them with much needed clarity on managing frequent heartburn.

“With the New Year, I often get patients who are looking for tips on how to change their lifestyles, and one way to do that is to manage frequent heartburn,” said Dr. Jorge. “By adding Prilosec OTC to a proactive health plan, patients are better able to enjoy all of their New Year’s resolutions be they hiking, dancing or eating the foods they love instead of worrying about heartburn.”

Four Tips to Battle Heartburn in 2014

Stay Active. Dr. Jorge suggests sticking to the number one New Year’s resolution most people make: lose weight. Losing weight helps alleviate pressure from your stomach which assists in preventing frequent heartburn.

Take a stroll. After enjoying a nice meal with friends or family, Dr. Jorge recommends a leisurely walk to aid in digestion. By walking, your body will allow time for the food to digest and empty from your stomach, and encourage stomach acid to stay down instead of rising.

Embrace Water. Chef Lala recommends drinking more water. Incorporating plenty of water into your daily routine helps keep heartburn at bay as it helps with digestion and washes out acid.

Stay alert. Chef Lala suggests staying away from foods and beverages that could trigger your heartburn symptoms (for example, onions, peppermint, chocolate, caffeinated beverages such as coffee, citrus fruits or juices, tomatoes, or high-fat foods).
