Indulging without Discomfort this Holiday Season

The holiday season means spending time with family and friends while reflecting on what you’re thankful for. The season is also synonymous with indulging in delicious, decadent foods. 

Between the office parties, family dinners and football games, the continuous splurging on comfort food at these celebrations is something to look forward to, but it’s also the reason that I call this time of year “heartburn season.”

According to the American College of Gastroenterology, more than 60 million Americans experience heartburn at least once a month, and some studies suggest that more than 15 million Americans experience symptoms each day. Consuming more rich food and sugary cocktails than usual during the holidays can make the problem even worse. To quickly recover from heartburn and indigestion issues, it’s best to come prepared with some easy solutions for relief.
