Heartburn - unpleasant, but usually harmless
What are the typical symptoms of heartburn?
Heartburn is a condition in which burning pain in the stomach area or the area of the upper abdomenwhich can radiate to behind the breastbone, into the esophagus or the pharynx. Many sufferers also experience a Feeling of pressurewhich usually intensifies when the patient is lying down. Another accompanying symptom can be sour or bitter belching be
Around a quarter of all people in Western countries have to deal with so-called reflux complaints about once a month - so heartburn is a widespread phenomenon that can have very different causes. The Latin term "reflux" means backflow and describes the backflow of stomach acid into the esophagus, which triggers the typical burning sensation.
How does heartburn develop?
As a rule, the transition between the stomach and the esophagus is closed by a sphincter - the so-called lower esophageal sphincter. This only opens when food from the esophagus arrives at the entrance to the stomach. After the food has been absorbed, the stomach opening closes again to prevent backflow of the stomach contents or gastric juice. If the valve does not close properly, stomach acid can rise into the esophagus and irritate the mucous membrane - and we experience heartburn.
Most often, the unpleasant burning sensation occurs due to a malfunction of the sphincter muscle at the entrance to the stomach. Here, a distinction is made between a acute, i.e. temporary, as well as a pathological, chronic functional disorder distinguished.
Regardless of the actual cause, heartburn can manifest itself in a variety of ways:
The most common symptoms of heartburn include:
- acid regurgitation
- Burning behind the breastbone
- Feeling of pressure in the upper abdomen
- Sore throat
Triggers and causes of heartburn
Heartburn is particularly common after sumptuous meals, very spicy food or the (excessive) consumption of coffee, alcohol or nicotine. However, the unpleasant burning sensation can also have psychosomatic causes and be attributed to stress or grief. Furthermore, a mechanical dysfunction of the sphincter between the esophagus and the entrance to the stomach is one of the most common triggers of heartburn.
For example, heartburn occurs more frequently during pregnancy - especially in the last trimester. The reason for this is, on the one hand, the ever-growing child, which presses on the mother's stomach area. On the other hand, the elasticity of the tissues also changes in view of the birth due to hormonal factors, which can also cause the sphincter of the esophagus to become "looser.
Excess weight can also cause a malfunction of the gastric valve. The pressure on the gastric sphincter is increased by the so-called visceral fat, which accumulates between the internal organs.
However, the stomach can also be stretched so much by a very sumptuous meal that there is a temporary loosening of the closure at the entrance to the stomach. In this way, air or stomach contents enter the esophagus - we have to belch sourly or feel a burning sensation.
Regardless of the particular cause, heartburn is unpleasant and can also permanently impair health if it occurs frequently or recurrently. For acute symptoms, not only special preparations from the pharmacy, but also naturopathic methods can help.
An overview of the most common heartburn triggers:
- Temporary sphincter dysfunction due to excessive food intake
- Eating very sweet, fatty, spicy or sour foods.
- excessive caffeine, alcohol or nicotine intake
- Nervousness, stress or mental strain
- Taking medication
- Food intolerances
- Sphincter dysfunction due to obesity or pregnancy

Health risks of persistent heartburn
In most cases, heartburn occurs acutely, can be treated well alternatively and is quickly gone again. However, if left untreated, it can also lead to a number of health risks or even secondary diseases.
One of the most widespread sequelae of frequent or recurrent heartburn is the so-called Reflux disease (gastroesophageal reflux). The reasons for chronic dysfunction of the gastric sphincter or esophageal muscles are just as varied as those for acute heartburn.
In the event of persistent irritation of the esophagus by the highly acidic contents of the stomach, the esophagus can also become inflamed - in this case, physicians speak of a Esophagitis.
The tissue of the esophagus can change due to disturbed reflux and the associated permanent irritation. Possible consequences can be the formation of ulcers, increasing scarring of the tissue or even esophageal cancer.
Here is an overview of possible pathological causes or sequelae of frequently or regularly occurring heartburn:
- Reflux disease (gastroesophageal reflux)
- Irritable stomach (functional dyspepsia)
- Gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa)
- Inflammation of the esophagus (esophagitis)
- Spasm of the sphincter of the esophagus (achalasia)
- Diaphragmatic hernia (Hiatal hernia)
- Tissue scarring, ulceration or tumor formation
When to see a doctor for heartburn?
Anyone who suffers from frequent or recurring heartburn should have the cause clarified by a doctor in any case. It is possible that the problem is based on an organic or pathological cause, which should be treated accordingly.
If other symptoms occur, such as severe stomach pain, a sudden aversion to certain foods, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, or a significant change in stool, a doctor should be consulted immediately.
What helps with heartburn? - Sustainable approaches to relieve discomfort
Are you prone to occasional heartburn or acid regurgitation? It doesn't always have to be medication! As with many other medical problems, it can also be helpful with heartburn to first of all take a look at the individual lifestyle. This often allows factors to be identified that promote the corresponding complaints.
For example, those who often eat sumptuously or love foods that are very fatty or strongly spiced should possibly adjust their eating habits accordingly. Those who drink coffee or alcohol frequently or a lot, or who smoke, can also try out whether a reduction in potential triggers brings improvement. A more conscious lifestyle often pays off directly.
It has been proven that also mental tension promotes the formation of acid in the stomach and can negatively affect the function of the digestive tract. In the case of heartburn that is psychosomatic in nature, it is therefore worthwhile to first consider possible Stressors and reduce them. A less tight workload, regular breaks, as well as Relaxation methods such as meditation, yoga or exercise in the fresh air can help to calm the mind. In this way, you can also ensure less tension and more balance on a physical level.
If you are regularly or recurrently affected by heartburn, you should seek medical advice to rule out organic causes for the unpleasant burning sensation and possible further health risks.
