Have you ever had that feeling where you’re ever so slightly disgusted with the human body? A large majority of us are hiding something we’re embarrassed about when we walk down the street, whether it’s a tyre round the stomach, a birthmark or hair in the wrong place. Yet for some people bodily functions are something that can’t be hidden and excessive burping is one of the biggest offenders for heartburn sufferers.

Many people swallow air if they talk during meals, which in turn causes excessive burping

Burping, belching (whatever you want to call it) quite often brings a huge sense of relief, but for heartburn sufferers excessive burping is very unwelcome. It occurs quite simply because of excess air in the stomach, yet the causes of this air can vary greatly. For example, people who don’t help along the natural posture of sitting up straight are inhibiting the natural process of gravity moving food through the digestive system. As a result, food catches air in the wrong places and this rises up, as a burp. Excessive burping is often found alongside heartburn because of a simple problem, but one which causes a lot of discomfort. It can be very embarrassing, particularly if you are in a quiet place or somewhere it may be frowned upon.

The great news for people who experience excess burping, whether it’s associated closely with a heartburn condition or not, is that once the cause has been identified it can be very easily treated. You may simply need to prop yourself up with a specially designed pillow at night, or avoid talking during meals. Alternative you could have a food intolerance that causes your stomach to produce excess acid and bloat up when the food goes undigested too. Visiting your doctor can prove very helpful if you think heartburn cures as simple as these ones could cure your excessive burping, yet these are also things you can try at home by yourself.
