Foods that cause acid reflux

Espresso Logo By Philippe Michaud of Espresso | Slide 1 of 20: Between 10% and 20% of the population experiences acid reflux. Most people with this condition report the same symptoms: seemingly acidic saliva, a bitter taste in the mouth, a burning sensation starting in the stomach and rising sometimes as far as the mouth, and pain when swallowing.This benign chronic illness is usually caused by a dysfunction of the esophageal sphincter, the valve that prevents acid from leaving the stomach.There is no remedy or miracle cure for this condition. Yes, there are some treatments, like taking medication, but before you go there, try making some simple changes to your diet.
