You should stay away from foods that are spicy, fatty and greasy. It takes longer for these foods to be digested and pressures the LES (lower esophageal sphincter).

Eating spaghetti can also trigger heartburn. Tomatoes, tomato juices and sauces calm the LES (lower esophageal sphincter). You can still eat pasta dishes, just make sure it doesn’t have the red sauce.

Citrus fruits and juices like orange, lemon, lime and grapefruit relaxes the LES (lower esophageal sphincter).

Milk and dairy products causes acid production because it takes longer time to digest and stays in the stomach for quite a while.

Beverages with alcohol content also relax the LES (lower esophageal sphincter) and increase production of acid in the stomach. You might want to get rid of the stock beer and liquor in your fridge to avoid temptation.

Chocolate is a comfort food that might be the hardest to resist but it relaxes the LES (lower esophageal sphincter), so you should stay away from it.

Aside from food, smoking a cigarette or cigar can also trigger heartburn because it weakens the LES (lower esophageal sphincter).

Eating within 2 to 3 hours before bed time can also cause heartburn. When you are lying down with a full stomach, the stomach contents are pushed to the LES (lower esophageal sphincter).
